Put me on and let me hide you
from their ostracizing eyes.
Let them see who has a brand new
set of truth-covering lies.
Cover your eyes, they will betray you,
shut your mouth, you'll let it slip.
I shall do the work for you.
Hold yourself and get a grip.
I hope you would not mind me
asking how it'll be today,
pensive, bad, or very happy?
I am your mask, how shall I be?
Do you want to be a phantom?
Do you want to be a clown?
Would you like your actions random?
Tell me, let's cover that frown.
I shall keep your tear-stained cheeks
from the prying sight of crowds.
No trace of an eye that leaks
saline bitterness in pounds.
Darling, don't destroy your beauty
by crying every night away.
But never mind, I'm here for duty.
Put on your mask, here comes the play.
