Vom Vorton - Behind a Mask

Liner Notes: 

Written and recorded for the "live" fight over at songfight.org this weekend, as part of their annual festivities. So you get to see me dance, which might detract from another deeply miserable lyric. Maybe.

Lyrics: 

I’m just like a soldier
who won’t give up the war
although there was a ceasefire
several months before
I’m like a football fan
that will not celebrate
because they fear a comeback
even though it’s far too late

am I a stickler for the rules?
am I waiting for a cure?
or does my dedication
mask a motive that’s impure?

One weird trick
To hide the tears
Conceal your face in public
For two years
Science hates
this simple task
hold your heartbreak
back behind a mask

All the snow has melted
but I’ll still wear a scarf
open up my heart again
please don’t make me laugh

I had hope but now I’m hopeless
could’ve cleaned up but now I’m a big mess
I was on top feeling clever
now I’m broken - maybe forever

One weird trick
To hide the tears
Conceal your face in public
For two years
Science hates
this simple task
hold your heartbreak
back behind a mask

The chorus lyrics are funny and great. I really enjoyed this. It evoked lots of 90s indie bands. And great performance too. Thanks!

There's something about that synth that made me really happy. This is super fun and catchy, despite the darker undertones of the lyric. The bridge is awesome before the return to that excellent chorus. Nice kitty cameo. I like seeing what you're doing, because my ears alone don't pick up on all the subtleties. I'm gonna be singing this in my head for a little while, I think
