|Once He Was a Man
was a little boy; he didn't know the rules.
his games of make-believe, and grownups all were fools.
his games, and they were games; a mask was just a toy.
was truth, and lies were lies, when he was just a boy.
grown into a man, and now he's been to school.
his games of make-believe according to the rules.
He wears a
mask that hides his face and covers up his eyes,
So he can
never see the facts, or tell the truth from lies.
And so he
tries his best to please; he tries as best he can.
was a little boy... Once he was a man.
