Actor

It’s morning, you’re checking on me

You’re restless, your pictures are speaking

The silence of night time doesn’t lull you like the rest of us

You’re irate, you’re lonely

The clouds are dissolving above us

Insistent there’s meaning for the worse

You warn us, with shrill voice, there’s an eye behind the cumulus

They’re in control. You’re serious.

You’re an actor, your scene’s over, we pack up

Joke about it, have a debrief, and move on

It was scripted, and we knew it, it’s alright

We’re pretending, we’re not like this in real life

You call me, but only to police

Then conflict erupts as if we’re enemies

And so I’m beginning to prefer it when you didn’t care

You’re encroaching in despair

You’re an actor, your scene’s over, we pack up

Joke about it, have a debrief, and move on

It was scripted, and we knew it, it’s alright

We’re pretending, we’re not like this in real life

Ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ooh ooh x4
