This is not in vain close your eyes,
They brand me with a smile,
The pain will last a while.
This is not in vain close your eyes,
The pain begins to fade,
Come join the masquerade.

I won’t be tamed, never felt ashamed,
When I’m down and cut and bleeding.
If I’m a prisoner, cut my restraints and free me now
I’m seeking out a brand new feeling.

I heard a voice far away (or does my mind deceive me)
Just loud enough for me to know that he said:

This is not in vain close your eyes,
They brand me with a smile,
The pain will last a while.
This is not in vain close your eyes,
The pain begins to fade,
Decisions have been made,
Your penance has been paid,
Come join the masquerade.

Death to my past, this pain will only last
As long as I dance in denial
Never going back, never looking back now
Henceforth I will never pull the mask down.
I’m seeking out a brand new meaning.

I heard a voice far away (or does my mind deceive me)
Just loud enough for me to know that he said:

This is not in vain close your eyes,
They brand me with a smile,
The pain will last a while.
This is not in vain close your eyes,
The pain begins to fade,
Decisions have been made,
Your penance has been paid,
Come join the masquerade.

I heard a voice far away (or does my mind deceive me)
Just loud enough for me to know that he said:

This is not in vain close your eyes,
They brand me with a smile,
The pain will last a while.
This is not in vain close your eyes,
The pain begins to fade,
Decisions have been made,
Your penance has been paid,
Come join the masquerade.
