Part I - The Rape of Solitude

Once He Was a Man



Once He Was a Man

Once he was a little boy; he didn't know the rules.
He played his games of make-believe, and grownups all were fools.
He played his games, and they were games; a mask was just a toy.
And truth was truth, and lies were lies, when he was just a boy.

Now he's grown into a man, and now he's been to school.
He plays 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.
Once he was a little boy... Once he was a man.
