He's Back (The Man Behind The Mask)

Album: Constrictor (1986)
Charted: 61
  • You're with your baby
    And you're parked alone
    On a summer night
    You're deep in love
    But you're deeper in the woods
    You think you're doin' alright

    Did you hear that voice
    Did you see that face
    Or was it just a dream
    This can't be real
    That only happens, babe
    On the movie screen

    Oh, but he's back
    He's the man behind the mask
    And he's out of control
    He's back
    The man behind the mask
    And he crawled out of his hole

    You're swimmin' with your girl
    Out on lovers' lake
    And the wind blows cold
    It chills your bones
    But you're still on the make
    That's a bad mistake

    But the moon was full
    And you had a chance
    To be all alone
    But you're not alone
    This is your last dance
    And your last romance

    Yeah, cause he's back
    He's the man behind the mask
    And he's out of control
    He's back
    The man behind the mask
    And he crawled out of his hole

    Oh, if you see him comin'
    Get away if you can
    Just keep on runnin'
    Run as fast as you can
    He's a dangerous, dangerous man

    And he's out tonight
    And he's watchin' you
    And he knows your house
    No, don't turn out the lights

    Yeah, cause he's back
    He's the man behind the mask
    And he's out of control
    He's back
    The man behind the mask
    And he's after your soul

    He's back
    He's the man behind the mask
    And he's out of control
    He's back
    The man behind the mask
    And he's after your soul

    He's back
    He's the man behind the mask
    And he's out of control
    He's back
    The man behind the mask
    And he's after your soul Writer/s: ROBERT WILLIAM ATHIS, ALICE COOPER, TOM KELLY
