Dress Rehearsal

from by Final Outcome

lyrics

I’ve spent four years up on this stage playing this fucked up version of me
And I hate every line I say
Every action’s been rehearsed for weeks and strategically put into place

And when the curtain calls the mask comes off the wall
I’m too afraid to show my face
When the spotlight’s on, the words spill out without a thought
And everything I do, I do for everyone but me
A sheep in wolf's clothing just trying not to be eaten alive

You’ve spent the last four fucking years watching this awkward mess I’ve made of myself
And you can’t even tell that everything I do is all for show
I’m just reading from the pages as I go

And when the curtain calls the mask comes off the wall
I’m too afraid to show my face
When the spotlight’s on, the words spill out without a thought
And everything I do, I do for everyone but me
A sheep in wolf's clothing just trying not to be eaten alive

I know in time that I will find the strength to throw this face to the floor
But until then, it’s here that I stand
Waiting for the curtain to close me in
