Persona 5 OST- Beneath the Mask

Beneath the Mask

"Beneath the Mask" is a song in Persona 5 and is played in Tokyo at night. The song is composed by Shoji Meguro with lyrics by Rike Schmalz and vocals by Lyn Inaizumi.

An instrumental version with an electronic organ playing the main melody is also used for the daytime segments, and each of those has a 2nd variation without percussion that plays on rainy days.

Lyrics

The following are the official lyrics from Persona 5 Original Soundtrack.

Where have you been?
Been searching all along
Came facing twilight on and on
Without a clue
Without a sign
Without grasping yet
The real question to be asked
Where have I been?

I'm a shape shifter
At Poe's masquerade
Hiding both face and mind
All free for you to draw
I'm a shape shifter
What else should I be?
Please don't take off my mask
Revealing dark


Moments of calm
Nothing left to be found
A mirror right in front of me
That's where I find
An empty glass
Reflecting the sad truth
It's telling words not to be told
I need the mask

I'm a shape shifter
At Poe's masquerade
Hiding both face and mind
All free for you to draw
I'm a shape shifter
Chained down to my core
Please don't take off my mask
My place to hide


I can't tell you
How to see me
Just a cage of bones
There's nothing inside
Will it unleash me?
Burning down the walls
Is there a way
For me to break?

I'm a shape shifter
At Poe's masquerade
Hiding both face and mind
All free for you to draw
I'm a shape shifter
Have no face to show
Please don't take off my mask
My disguise

Trivia

  • The lyric, "at Poe's masquerade" is a reference to the short story, The Masque of the Red Death by Edgar Allan Poe. The same story is also the origin of the Velvet Room in the Persona series; in the story, the "Velvet Room" is one of the seven rooms the protagonist enters, each of which represent different stages of life.
  • An arrangement of this song appears in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. It is available as an option on the Mementos stage, as well as custom stages and Smash-original stages such as Battlefield as of version 8.1.0.
