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
