The world is like a mask
It hides us from ourselves
I heard that phrase in a dream
It was spoken by a man I did not know

I saw three men trying to escape
a window had been locked
They were trying to force it open
to break free

One of them found the latch
He turned it to one side
It opened, and they all scurried out
Out they tumbled into a world they did not know
