Symphony X — Masquerade lyrics

Shackled in darkness - the forbidden portrait confined to
It's frame
Unbroken silence - a total misfortune and shame
Agression from view
Ragin obsession - this mask of oppression, it hides your

Your sacrifice this paradise of innocence
This tearing suture renounces the love he once knew
Trust the lie - you falsify the line of truth

You disguise your insolence

Don't deny insanity - mediocrity
Save us from this masquerade of lies
Kings and fools die in ridicule (save us)
Save us from this masquerade of lies

A fallen fortress sees him beneath starless skies
Subsiding deeper - the final farewell in his eyes
Unspoken hero - distrusted and thrusted within surmise

Seizing intrusion to unveil his clever disguise

Your sacrifice this paradise of innocence
Save us from this masquerade of lies
Trust the lie - you falsify the line of truth

Kings and fools die in ridicule (save us)
Save us from this masquerade of lies
[Solo]

Save us from this masquerade of lies
Kings and fools die in ridicule (save us)
Save us from this masquerade of lies
