Masquerade The core is getting old, the veil preserves what's left untold We walk a path of lies to find ourselves ignored Steering the flesh machine been banished inside, quarantine Crashing the moral, driving to extreme – for a fake, supreme Keep up appearances pretending strengths you'll never gain Discard the weaknesses showing the real you Time to reveal your raddled skin Protected ego – your smile's so lying genuine I look through my shell, watching you acting in your small cell wearing my face, Wasting just another masquerade Buried alive – for several times you woke up in the dirt Washed away the old grimace but sickness still clings sticky to your face... Time to reveal your raddled skin Protected ego – your smile's so lying genuine I look through my shell, watching you acting in your small cell wearing my face, Wasting just another masquerade Acting doubtful Lie to reassure ourselves or to prevent another scar Deception failed, what's done is done The mask will fall for everyone ...Eventually... let's die in honesty Concealed behind a shade We share this masquerade A newfound sovereignty To be as one, unique Time to reveal your raddled skin Protected ego – your smile's so lying genuine I look through my shell, watching you acting in your small cell wearing my face, Wasting just another masquerade

Hokum plays metal. Metal that is progressive, technical and straightforward at the same time. As contradictory as it may sound, you have to experience one of their gigs or some tracks from their four available CDs to truly understand. Thrash metal meets progressive rock, groove meets polyrhythm, harmonies meet dissonances. Hokum is metal. ... more
