Track Name: The Man Behind the Mask
Late 70's something happened that I just discovered
through an old picture hidden in a jewelry box
Ten months before I was born my mother had a lover
This queer secret leaves me completely in shock

Who is the man embracing my mother again and again?
Why does he hide his face and his huge smile behind a mask?
where did they meet? I don't recognize this caribbean place
How long did this affair last? Now I want to know it all.

One day the circus came to a nearby village
My mother and her friends went to see the show
The main star was a giant wrestler called The Phantom
His strength and his size captivated my mom
Then everything happened so fast
and she didn't miss her chance
It leaves me completely in shock!

Since I saw that photo I can't forget this guy
There is something very familiar to me about his smile
giant size, strong arms, broad shoulders, muscled chest
his body and mine look very similar in all the rest

Who is this man that hugs my mom?
Who is this man behind the mask?
Who is this man that looks like me?
I have no doubt,
I am the Phantom's son.
Track Name: Hidden Past
She was a girl who didn't enjoy her life,
never dared to change and never crossed a line
She lived in a closed bubble
far away from feelings
Bubble
immune to any harm

She was stuck in a destructive marriage
Insults and shouting became her daily rut.
She lived in a closed bubble
far away from feelings
Bubble
immune to any harm

Loveless marriage, a false Life,
countless tears, many lies.
But for a few days she decided to break free
and that's when my story began.

One day she found a big heart
hidden under a cruel mask
that helped her to shed the disguise of sadness.
For a while she freed her mind,
those bad days were left behind,
freedom came hard and a new life was born.

For a long time I tried to find
my main role model in dad and mom
But I've realized that I have searched
for something that I will never be.
I'm bewildered, I feel alone,
life is a circus where right is wrong
Now it's time to take off my mask,
and learn to say "from now on I will be myself".
Track Name: Secrets
Now that I know my true roots
I walk hard, I stomp my boots
and I find the answer to all my questions
Now I can see clearly
what it means to be free
I am ready to restart my life

I am the son of a love that I still can't believe
Secrets have been revealed
the hidden truth of the past doesn’t matter.

All my doubts have been resolved
There are no secrets at all
It has brought a lesson to my mind
I have learned to accept the past
for what it is, and that’s just the way
to know why.

I am the son of a love that I still can't believe
Secrets have been revealed
the hidden truth of the past doesn’t matter.
I am the son of a love that I still can't believe
Secrets have been revealed
the hidden truth of the past doesn’t matter.

I am the son of a love that I still can’t believe
Secrets have been revealed
Whatever the reason was, it doesn’t matter
