No do not move the mask
Let it cover and obscure
I cannot bear
The eyes that stare
Vacant and demure

What had they seen
I cannot, will not say
I fear to know
What they will show
If I linger here and stay

It was not I who dashed
It was fate that brought him here
And I must claim
Through words profane
That my conscience should be clear

But had he held the gun
And me that one to run
Would I now lie
Not him but I
Shipwrecked ‘neath the sun
