Stop staring, stop acting
and get out there and make it real!
Don’t you see the curtain’s up on your life!
“All men die, few men truly live.”
“What we do today will echo in eternity.”
“To thine own self be true.”
Go on, sell yourself, it won’t cause death.
We both know we ran this place into the ground
and lost our souls…now all were left with is
Go wait tables some where and remember
your roots. Find the someone you were before
all the make-up and masks. I will too.
In the mean time Shakespeare
will blow some wind
through here and reset the place.
I’ll see you back here in five years.
Maybe then we won’t have to use
this place like a controlled substance.
Maybe then when we take off the makeup
and the masks there will be an actor
that looks like he took five.
