And some shadows lingered
But I pushed them away
The echoes of warnings
That I wouldnžt accept
For the beautiful mask gave me
A peek into the unknown...
And then the shadows grew
The echoes made sense
The beautiful mask was no longer
And as the light shined on it
Was that also a mask?
Its ugly darkness confronted me
As the awe passed away, fear took its place
My heart broke when I saw
The contorted shape of hate
My soul cried when it understood
The devious shadows of hipocrisy
My being trembled when I knew
The terrifying realization that behind the mask was
Did I see a shadow of understanding?
Was there a trace of hope after?
Was this horrible spectre a mask as well?
No, no, no
The lack of spirit,
And all that remained was reality
In a bitter moment I was forced to admit
That what had been, wasnžt real
And what was now, was nothing.
