"MASQUERADER"

Verse 1
Hey, girl, you're takin' your toll on me.
Losin' control, I'm feelin' the pain definitely.
I see you takin', but givin' just ain't your style.
I'm movin' on to hit the highway for uncountable miles.

Bridge 1
Don't need your riches, I'm through with it all.
Your values are crumblin' like an old ancient wall.
You permeate history with an all-too-common thread,
And now there's another man in there lyin' naked in your bed.

Verse 2
I'm through with fakin' and I'm shakin' the shackles that bind.
I'm not the kind of guy to stand for your daily grind.
You had me lovin' you, and, oh, so very misconstrued;
You made a promise, but it only made me come unglued.

Chorus 1
Masquerader, concealing who you are.
Masquerader, now ya gone too far.
Masquerader, with your glitter and allure.
Masquerader, the queen of all whores.

Verse 3
Selfish ambition, with a mission to trample, to climb.
Followed you closely and you sucked away my every dime, yeah!
And all your fakery was taking me into a trance.
I soon discovered I was chained to a lethal romance.

Bridge 2
Oh, don't need your riches, I'm through with it all.
Your values are crumblin' like an old ancient wall.
You permeate history with an all-too-common thread,
And now there's another man in there lyin' naked in your bed, your bed!

Chorus 2
Masquerader, concealing who you are.
Masquerader, now ya gone too far.
Masquerader, I could feel it all along.
Masquerader, the queen of Babylon.

Verse 4
You've tempted kings from the weakest to the very strong.
Your perfume leaves a trail too wide and way too long.
Too many nations see the damnation that you bring.
Your deceit is discreet, but there's an end to your fling.

Bridge 2
Oh, 'cause there's a Light that outshines all your wrongs,
And there's an end to your whoring the throngs.
There's a Light comin', and it's comin' real soon,
And there'll be no one left waiting in your sleazy bedroom.

Chorus 3
Masquerader, now we know who you are.
Masquerader, ya can't get too far.
Masquerader, here comes the thunder.
Masquerader, oh, you're goin' under.
Masquerader, your worlds are crumblin'.
Masquerader, and your kingdom's tumblin'.
Masquerader, it's the End of the line,
Masquerader, no more despicable crimes.
There'll be repair for all the damage you've done,
Masquerader, when Jesus comes.
