Welcome to the Masquerade Lyrics

We've got the fire, who's got the matches
Take a look around at the sea of masks
and come one come all, welcome to the grand ball
Where the strong run for cover and the weak stand tall

I'm not one to scatter ashes
But there's some things...

    All the people try to hide their feelings and thoughts behind different expressions (sea of masks). Everyone is welcome to join (everyone is free to hide or show their emotions).
    The strong people are forced to hide behind masks because they fear losing their strength (monetary power, status in society, other kinds of strengths) but the weak have nothing to lose, so they can be mask-less and fearless.

    It can also be interpret as teenage years....boys putting a fake mask to impress girls and vice-versa, while I stay mask-less and am not ashamed of being myself or afraid of losing anything.

    i would have to say i means that he or someone has a dire secret in which it hurt people or them self's, and that he is hiding it under the surface. he has no regret of it. though he does know it is wrong. it also sounds that he is giving a clue that he had no choice or he see's it like that.
