The Mask
Lyrics

Buried deep beneath the sands of time
Whispers from an ancient golden shrine
Drift across the ocean on a gently blowing breeze
Stirring the adventure in my mind

I pack my bags and climb aboard
The ocean liner blows its horn
I look back at the world I leave behind

Whispers guide me by the hand
They lead me to this holy land  
Digging for the truth I hope to find

There is a mystic power
Bright as the sun
Look through the mask and you will see

A lifetime in an hour
And when it is done
The door, it may be locked, but you
You will find the key

I find myself upon a throne
Spinning through the great unknown
The more I see the less I understand

Colors like I never seen
The speed of light pulled through a dream
Back before the time it all began

There is a mystic power
Bright as the sun
Look through the mask and you will see
A lifetime in an hour
And when it is done
The door, it may be locked, but you
You may find, that you are the key

My whole life flashed before my eyes
From the morning I was born until the day I died
I did everything they asked
Until the day I found this mask
That took me on this flying carpet ride

The sand was pouring through the glass like wine
The voices, they were calling me to climb
Back up through the hourglass, shedding all my fear,
To a present where the future could be mine

Waking up, it’s yesterday
Home in bed, it's not too late!
I wonder was it all some crazy dream

Afraid to make the choice before
Now I open up the door
Stepping through, now I am finally free

There is a mystic power
Bright as the sun
The mask, it showed me how to see
A lifetime in an hour
And when it’s all done
The door, it may be locked, but you
If you try, you may find, that you are the key
