Van Der Graaf Generator
He's a man of the past and one of the present,
a man who hides behind a mask behind a mask.
A clown, a fool,
believing it cool to be down
or that the game is all about who laughs the last.
So he tells all his problems to his friends and relations,
exposes his neuroses to their view.
Theye accept as fact
every masochistic mumble of his act;
how could they know what was false and what was true?
Sometimes when he wakes
he feels he's walked into a dream
but all it takes
to remind him things are what they seem
is the belief
that the man behind the mask can really dance.
he sees himself cavorting.
Pierrot for awhile
to find relief
in the shelter of the dark, most telling mask.
After all the pantomimes are ended
he peels all the make-up off his face
to reveal beneath
the tears running all down his cheeks:
alone, he opens to the world...but it's much too late.
He's been left, in the end, without a face.
