about

'Masquerade' is a layered, melodic track with a gentle hook. It is about the loss of innocence and the danger of emotional expectations.

lyrics

Masquerade

Words and music © Tim Hudspith, December 31st, 1991


In my imperfect circle, is a merry-go-round
A never-ending spiral, which always hits the ground
While waiting for the nightfall, I watch the sunset fade
As I recall a feeling, which ends the masquerade

I’m dancing on a wire, I’m running on a blade
I can recognise a liar, I can only try and save
A sense of desperation, a willingness to fight
My strength is my salvation, it will be my guiding light

Leave me alone
I’m overriding fire
I’m better on my own
Containing it inside

Within a perfect circle, I would reach and touch the sky
Moving ever upwards, with strength enough to fly
With truth as my companion, and love right by my side
I would surely find salvation, I would never be denied

Leave me alone
I’m overriding fire
I’m better on my own
Containing it inside
