Here's "Masquerade" from my new album JUPITER. This song, as the whole album is as well, is inspired by Japanese rock. Not only that though, but also glam metal, goth and punk rock. This song is about questioning reality as well as people's motives around you. This version is the brand new remixed version you will find on the album, not the 2016 single version (thus the 2017 in parentheses).

Written by Joseph Kimbrell (Vitne)

Personnel:

Vitne - Lead and backing vocals, guitar, bass, flute
Julian Angel - Lead guitar
Nigel Rios - Drums
Rolf Munkes - Mixing and mastering

I used Pro Tools, Jupiter flute, Gibson guitar and Oktava mic for the recording of this.

LYRICS

Give me one thing to hold onto
I’ve been having doubts of what is false or true
I told you once
I’ve told you twice
I don’t know how I get through these nights
I can’t seem to find
Just how to slow my mind

I cannot seem to shake this feeling of dread
That everything I feel inside is not as it seems
So is this real or masquerade?
This must be all in my dreams

I sit down in this sterile waiting room
Everyone here, behind a mask they hide
Well who am I in this great wide world?
This grand ballet of just close enough
Still can’t seem to find
Just how to slow my mind

I cannot seem to shake this feeling of dread
That everything I feel inside is not as it seems
So is this real or masquerade?
This must be all in my dreams

So you can lay me down to rest
Is this not as it seems?
And if it takes me all my life
I must wake up from this dream

I cannot seem to shake this feeling of dread
That everything I feel inside is not as it seems
So is this real or masquerade?
This must be all in my dreams
So you can lay me down to rest
This is not as it seems
Life is just a masquerade
Or is this all in my dreams?
