Masquerade

Let me tell you a story of light and dark,
take this journey we shall embark,
into a world filled with greed and hate,
this man wanders soul-less in this masquerade,
and to all that’s said we can relate.
So he lives his life the life of being hanged,
executed by the white collar of corporate fame,
he trims not himself because profit keeps him tame,
so sane, this man’s power melts the line between true and false,
dancing with the devil he takes his last waltz,
so take one last look at this corrupted sight,
he works in the day but his day is without light,
the prophecy is told corrupted verses he recites,
oh masquerade, which mask does he wear tonight?
