Liner Notes: 

Of course, we need to keep our masks ON - But I thought I'd flip it and write about the need to take them off

Lyrics: 

Why the disguise?
I can’t make out your expression
What lies beneath
Fear or a confession?

Must you be taken to task
When I plead please take off your mask
Maybe you’ll be free at last,
When you finally take off your mask

You think you're protected
When will you discover
It's only a cheap charade?
What's lurking undercover?

Only one thing I ask
Please, please take off your mask
Maybe you'll be rid of your past
When you finally take off your mask

There's no way
They won't know who you are
There's no way
To hide all your scars

Only one thing I ask
Please, please take off your mask
Maybe you'll be rid of your past
When you finally take off your mask

Maybe not the right song for this time, but a very lovely one nevertheless. The fast hi-hat with the slow tempo is cool. I especially like the turnaround at "There's no way" that has some clever chord choices.

i love the musical track, with that great contrast between verse and chorus, and the lyric is provocative, hypnotic, engrossing and really great! excellent work!
and a haunting 'richard thompson-esqe' quality that you seem to do effortlessly!

Love that syncopated bass riff. It reminds me of Watching the Detectives. The chorus is incredibly strong.
