Masquerade
(c) 2010 Mike Maimone/Mutts

Snake Bites & Starry Nights
full of cellophane coated dreams
I can't get you off my mind
I'm too choked up to scream
You live in a room full of mirrors
it's all you ever wanted to do
You say the world looks much clearer when
everybody there looks like you
What a funny little masquerade...

My eyes ain't good enough anymore
and my ears are playin' tricks on me too.
I can't stand your fake little world
so I'm giving up on you.

How do you chew with a tongue like a whisk broom?
Say you could never be so cavalier.
Switching sides like electric slide
well baby, don't apologize if you feel like dancing.
At your funny little masquerade...

My eyes ain't good enough anymore
and my ears are playin' tricks on me too.
I can't stand your fake little world
so I'm giving up on you.
Well, can I dance at your masquerade?
