intro: A D A E A D E A

F C G C F C G
I took off my mask that night and bared my teeth in your face
F C G C F C G
you saw something else living under my skin the wolf with no thought of disgrace

A E A A E
I know I know some things you must never confess
A E D
I drop to the ground like a bird hit by gunshot
E E A
just like hermann hesse

I stood by the theatre door knowing it had to begin
I was shaking down to my core knowing I had to go in
I know I know some things I cry as the angels confess
I left my identity back in the theatre
just like hermann hesse

You saw my precious mask falling from my face
I stood naked in front of you the wolf with no thought of disgrace
I know I know some things you must never confess

you chose the spirit I chose the flesh
just like hermann hesse
just like hermann hesse
