"Already months since I've been secluded, everything's fallen apart
Do you think it's fine for me? I've fallen into a pit of darkness
It's too deep here, I've fallen into a pit of darkness
It's dark beneath my eyes, yes I've fallen into a pit of darkness
I've fallen into a pit of darkness, I've sinned to myself.
I wanted to make everything right, the things I did wrong upon my conscience
I gave my hand, and you held it tight, the hand that I gave
But now after all this time, you light a fire as if to burn everything apart
I tried everything I could do, never did I run
No, you said you didn't want to see me, so I packed my bags for you
I tried to take responsibility, so that you didn't have to see me
But all that's come back in front of me is news in the media without a single truth to it.
As if it were a one-sided assault. Even when I read it, it looks as if I'm trash
If I sit still, a story with more fiction you will write
But I'm already trash, I'm already trash in the books
I will have to express my position before I get swept away.
That day, I wanted to make things better with you, you were disappointed
But I saw you come at me suddenly, cursing at me
I stepped back surprised as hell, waved my umbrella, I know that this is even a sin.
But that I committed a ruthless assault? Who came up with this?
I was called to the police station, they heard the truth
Even they knew what really went down, I was provoked intentionally.
Somehow, I think your purpose was to claim a settlement a hundred times more.
I knew I had to work part-time, but the company didn't allow that.
You said I disappeared without apology? You do your best to deceive our fans with lies.
You cursed your lungs out, and our members had to hold back and put up with your lunacy.
You care only for yourself, the company's just the same
Selecting more members without discussion nor our consent, and now they say it was a mistake.
Okay I am sorry, it went wrong from the start
Yes I am sorry, we tried our best but it came to nothing
Okay I am sorry, okay I am sorry
Yes I am sorry, I am sorry to myself"

In addition to the song, ACE took to Instagram for a more official letter intended for the public. First, the member apologized for his own wrongdoing, then declared that parts of the story told by Chibin were false.
안녕하세요 에이스입니다. 먼저 많은 분들께 심려 끼쳐드려 죄송합니다. 우선, 저를 믿어주시고 사랑해주셨던 팬분들께 너무 죄송합니다. 그리고 함께했던 멤버들에게도 미안한 마음뿐입니다. - 전후 사정과 제 의중을 떠나 결과론적으로 제가 행한 행동에 대한 잘못을 인정합니다. 그렇지만 우산을 돌담에 부러뜨려 흉기로 만들었다거나, 당시 저를 말리는 멤버들에게 폭행을 가했다는 점은 절대 사실이 아님을 알려드립니다. - 또한 5개월간 사과 한번 없이 잠적했다는 말도 사실이 아니며, 공백 기간 동안 모든 책임을 지고 팀 탈퇴를 비롯한 회사 계약을 해지, 경찰 조사까지 완료한 상태입니다. - 한쪽의 일방적인 주장으로 마스크를 아껴주셨던 팬 분들, 마스크 멤버들, 그리고 소중한 주변 분들께서 두 번 다시 상처받는 일이 없었으면 좋겠습니다. - 제 미성숙함에 통감하며 다시 한 번 죄송하다는 말씀을 드립니다. 앞으로도 마스크를 응원하며 많은 관심과 아낌없는 사랑 부탁드립니다. - This is ACE Firstly I would like to sincerely apologize to our fans, the public and to our members for arousing criticism. I would like to apologize from the bottom of my heart to our fans who have believed in me and supported me. I would also like to apologize to my members who have come this far with me together. - Asides from whatever situation and my intentions at the time of the incident, and based on the result of the incident, I would like to admit to the fault in my actions of that day. However, never did I break an umbrella on a brick wall to make a weapon or assault my members as they were trying to prevent me. I would like to state that these accusations are comepletely false. - Furthermore, accusations that I disappeared without contact for 5 months without a single apology is completely untrue. During this period of inactivity, I took full responsibility for my actions by leaving the group, ending my contract with the company while also undergoing and completing a police investigation. - I wish that the fans who supported MASC, the MASC members and the people I love are not hurt or taken aback by these one-sided accusations. - I am fully aware of the immaturity of my actions. I would like to once again apolgize for my actions. I will continue to give my support for MASC. I ask that you also continue to give your love and support for MASC.
