Torrington, Ct, Usa
Self proclaimed, you know it all
or so you’ve come to say.
But before you take your curtain call,
step backstage from the play.
So long you’ve been inside the role
you think they want to see.
Oblivious, it takes it’s toll
the dreams of what you’ll be.
Applause, applause, the audience
plays up upon the lies.
Holding each other in suspense.
Everyone in disguise.
The play has always been the thing,
for actors all we are.
Lost here among our roles living,
from ourselves, so very far…
