I have to feed the mask


.

We feed the mask.  Its appetite voracious.
We feed the mask.  Its hold tenacious.
We feed the mask.  It’s our defence.
We feed the mask.  It’s my last defence.

My last defence.  Against letting you in.
My last defence.  Against my bad your win.
My last offence.  Attack to defend.
My last offence.  Attack to offend.

Attack to offend.  It’s the great distraction.
Attack to offend.  It’s the great push-away.
Attack to defend.  The words come out all wrong.
Defend the offence.  Just make it all go away.

Make it all go away.  So I don’t have to change.
Make it all go away.  So I can make it your fault.
Make it all go away.  I have to feed the mask.
We feed the mask.  I have to feed the mask.
