Michael Jackson Behind The Mask

Michael's third single cover to Behind The Mask
 "Behind The Mask" was originally a semi-instrumental released in 1979. With vocoder lyrics by Chris Boswell-sung by Sakamoto which you can listen to over Here.

 During the Thriller Sessions, Quincey brought this to Mr. Jackson's attention who instantaneously fell in love with it. Adding a whole new arrangement and a storyline to the track. He soon came under fire for alleged copyright infringement. Thus, it was stocked away within his archived until today.

 As great as this song is, I don't think it belongs on an album marketed as his very last efforts. I think "Behind The Mask should've waited until perhaps a special edition to Thriller.

 That aside, I am madly in love with this gem! Everything from the beatbox to the melody-you can just feel Michael Jackson insert his own signature into this rendition!

Lyrics

(Verse)
All along I had to talk
About it
Like a two edged sword,
He touched you and it stabs me
All along I knew you were
A phony girl
You sit behind the mask
And you control your world
I sit around and i watched your face
I try to find the truth
But that's your hiding place
You Say You Love Me But It's Hard To See
Cause when he's in Your arms
Your throwing rocks at me


(Bridge)
Who do you love?
Is it me? Well ?
I don't know
Who do you love?
...
You know me

(chorus)
There is nothing in your eyes
(there is nothing in your eyes)
That's the way you cry
(but that's the way you cry, girl)
All is grand, all is bright
(all is grand, all is bright)
You're just studying my mind
(you're just studying my mind)

(Verse 2)
I Walk around suffering in my doom
When i come to you
Your sitting in your room
You sit around in the strangest place
So take off the mask
So i can see you face

(Bridge)
Who do you love?
Is it me?
Is it him? Well?
I don't know!
Who do you love?

I want you
I know you

Heaven must be wearing
(heaven must be wearing)
Your smile is scary
(you got me scared, girl)
Insincere, empty tears
Where's your soul?
(you got me scared girl)
Where did it go?

Heaven must be wearing
(heaven must be wearing)
You smile is scary
Insincere, empty tears
Where's your soul?
Where did it go ?

(eh, eh , eh..)

I Walk around suffering in my doom
And when i come to you
Your sitting in your room
You sit around in the strangest place
So take off the mask
So i can see you face

(Bridge)
Who do you love?
Is it me?
Is it him?
I don't know
Who do you love?
I know you

(Bridge)
Who do you love?
Is it me?
Well?
I don't know
Who do you love?

I don't know
I don't wanna talk about it (let's talk about it)
