Behind The Curtain, song about transparency by Joe Deninzon

Election week, and news of our nation and world leaders, plus those JFK conspiracy theories at Watercoolers, Messengers, and Beauty Parlors all over.
This is Joe Deninzon & Stratospheerius’ BEHIND THE CURTAIN, which deals with transparency! 
Electric violin-fueled progressive hard rock! A song that talks about the masks we all wear in public. Questioning public figures, corporations, politicians. Conspiracies. Similar tempo to Black Sabbath’s PARANOID. The song uses lots of “Oz” keywords: “Pay No Attention to the Man Behind The Curtain.” “Click your heels 3 times.” Similar tempo to Black Sabbath’s PARANOID. 
Joe does sessions, string arrangements, co-writes; he wrote the electric violin technique book, PLUGGIN’ IN for Mel Bay books. Recently he’s performed live with Renaissance, Bruce Springsteen, Peter Criss, and the Muncie Symphony Orchestra…

Running on inertia
Propped up fake euphoria
Paper thin disguises
Human skin behind them
We suppress the demons
Feel the hunger grumbling
Show your poker face and dodge the lightning 
Nothing is certain
Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain 
Wear the mask so righteous 
Quick to judge the careless 
Those who free the monster 
Living in glass houses 
Stare at our reflection
Cracking through the mirror
Feel them breathing down your neck they’re coming nearer 
Dig the dirt in
Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain 
Click your heels three times and wish for the courage 
To fight tornadoes that smash you to pieces
Free yourself up and they’ll chain you forever

Welcome to the circus
It’s your biggest nightmare 
Wear the scarlet letter 
Scrutinized forever
All the doors are bolted
You can’t find your way home 
Everybody knows your name You feel so alone 
Put your mask on
And tuck your shirt in
Pay no attention to the
Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain
