Changing the Mask in OpenGL

Im sure there is a better way to label this but I cant think of it right now. What I am looking for is a way to fade out a texture using the alpha channel or another method.

Ive looked around and cant seem to find a method in OpenGL to change the mask values. Im sure there is something I can use to directly effect my PNG texture but I rather stay away from that if it is at all possible.

Im looking for something that works like this
glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, tex);

I guess thats a little much to be looking for but hopefully there is something close out there that I am missing.

Thanks Guys, I look foward to your wisdom!

(Edit) PS: It dosnt matter if I fade the entire mask in one uniformed fashion if that makes it any easier.

glColor4f(1, 1, 1, alpha);
before drawing the texture

Sir, e^iπ + 1 = 0, hence God exists; reply!
