You never show yourself
You're livin' in disguise
You keep on runnin'
And you'll run until you die

Someday, you'll realize
You made a great mistake
The devils in your eyes
You're just a big fat fake

Break down the falls
Drop the false facade
Always in disguise
In the mask you made
Tryin' to hide your eyes
In the masquerade

Why?

You can't be runnin' around
Hiding behind your mask
You can't be shooting straight
Is that too much to ask?

You played me for a fool
But the fool was really you
You tried to be so cool
But it was never true

Break down the falls
Drop the false facade
Always in disguise
In the mask you made
Tryin' to hide your eyes
In the masquerade

Why, why?

Break down the falls
Drop the false facade
Always in disguise
In the mask you made
Tryin' to hide your eyes
In the masquerade

Why?
