E  D5
You
 E
you're my mask
                 Bb5    E
you're my cover, my shelter
   D5
you
 E
you're my mask
               Bb5   E
you're the one who's blamed
  D5
do
 E
do my work
               Bb5  E
do my dirty work, scapegoat
   D5
do
 E
do my deeds
           Bb5   E
for you're the one who's shamed
 

[Chorus]

F5    D5  F5 E5
i'm your dream, make you real
 F5     D5      A5
i'm your  eyes when you must steal
Bb5    G5   A5  G5                 C5
i'm your pain  when you can't feel
        F5
sad but true

i'm your   dream,  mind astray
F5      D5       A5
i'm your   eyes while you're away
Bb5     G5     A5    G5
i'm your   pain   while you repay
