about

Come with me to the modern home of a superhero. Smell the sweat from a hard day stopping evil-doers. See the lasers from his eyes. Hear the crowd cheer. Feel his anxiety that someday someone might find out who is behind the mask.

lyrics

MASK (Keefer/Franklin)

Pet the dog, hang up my cape.
Kiss my wife, put my mask away.
She brings me a drink, we grab a seat and she smiles.
‘How was your day?’ well…
Dr. Terror put poison in the water supply,
The mayor was kidnapped by some new evil guy
And infernotron’s minions were robbing the bank downtown,
But I took them down.

What I wouldn’t give to never give up this secret…

I can feel it as I’m flying through the sky
Pulling pets from burning buildings, shooting lasers from my eyes.
It’s this feeling that it’s happening too fast
I’m afraid to lose myself inside this mask

Monday comes – head in the clouds
Signing autographs for a frantic crowd
When somebody tries to grab my disguise and I’m gone.
Have I been found out? Am I found out?
Why can’t some people just leave it alone?
I give them my body and they claw at my soul
This wild fascination is all that surrounds me now
And it almost took me down.

What I wouldn’t give to never give up this secret…

Chorus

How much longer can I go on? Do they need me
To drop everything every time they call?
Would the world shatter if I never came back at all?
