Masquerade

So now, my ungrateful child
You have more power in your paper crown
Than I could have ever dreamed
I didn’t know what to expect
My wishes and my dreams I had for you
Are now less likely than what they seemed

So, put on your mask of paper
And join life’s grand parade
We’re meant to fool one another
My son, that’s why we’re made
Magically sweeping through life
But eventually our colors will fade
So, put on your mask of paper
And join the masquerade...

The dreams I once had in store for you
I could have granted so much more for you
You were meant to be the King, that’s why you were made
But, I always knew that even the brightest colors fade

It was never easy to have all those
slaves at my feet
But throughout the years your sense
of compassion starts to fade
You forget all faces, you forget
anyone that you meet
You put on your paper mask and
join the masquerade...

So, put on your mask of paper
And join life’s grand parade
We’re meant to fool one another
My son, that’s why we’re made
Magically sweeping through life
But eventually our colors will fade
So put on your mask of paper
And join the masquerade
So, put on your mask of paper
And join the masquerade
My son, life's a masquerade...
