It is the Masquerade they talk about
Keep your mask they said
Be bewitched by scarlet streaks running through
And ribbons of jade and envy

The heels and feet moves as one
Commanding, an enchanted dance
Black and gold the rich man goes
Finer pieces of silver were never seen

Hide your face they will scream
Behind purple fumes and feathers
And when the joyful orange startles violet
The Masquerade has begun

Soles of steel against marble
The chandelier cast eerie spells
A lunatic spectrum at twelve midnight
Do you see what is to come?

The Masquerade has begun.
