masquerade lyrics – uriah heep

a masquerade of dancing shadows
appear before me
through my mystic window
and soon to be seen
i saw presented
became a vision that
i saw resented
i stood and watched
its image changing
the unseen hand was rearranging
and all the time i wondered
how did it wind

slowly, surely it unfolded
its simple lines just as
a pole wind told it
a temporary revolution
my problems rose and fell
with a lapse of illusion
my mind was telling me, don’t fight it
it’s just a hazard in the night
don’t do those
who’ve lost their way
it’s a masquerade

masquerade, it’s a masquerade …
