The mask

(Edward McBride)

This song is about a very shy guy who becomes someone else when he paints his face and dresses as a clown at the circus. He takes medicine and goes to a psychiatrist to try and overcome his shy persona.

This is the voice of a concerned citizen welcoming his people back home( the sojourners): those who have gone to experience the so called "greener pastures" and are still miserable. He's of the fact that if they do not build their home themselves no one will do it for them, hence he urges them on to unite and together build as one people.
