lyrics

They raise the curtain for you to see what lies behind
But you’re too busy to notice, you’re throwing darts up in the sky
I don’t know what you’re aiming for but I admire that you always try
You live your life so carelessly, I wish I could live it by your side

They call it method acting, but I call it living a lie
So go and take your mask off and deliver another aside
Cause you know all the dialogue, yes you’ve learnt all of your lines
And now I fear that all the words I hear have been rehearsed a thousand times

So go ahead, go and fuck everybody you know
It doesn’t matter to me, but don’t you think that it’s so strange
That what we have is never there when we turn the page

So go ahead, go and lie to me with every word
There’s no need to decipher what can clearly be heard
But you don’t mind, you tell yourself it’s only method acting

So now we’re splitting, yes we’re splitting at the seams
And trying to make it look natural, like an actor changing scenes.
It all happens so suddenly and it’s so hard to believe
That what was centre stage is now buried in the wings.

And we’re all terrible actors, but my god it’s a beautiful stage.
It seems like such a pity, it seems like such a shame,
To be toeing the line, to be putting these scenes to shame
And to spit upon the floor where there once was so much grace.

So go ahead, go and fuck everybody you know
It doesn’t matter to me, but don’t you think that it’s so strange
That what we have, is never there when you turn the page.

So go ahead, go and fuck everything that you see
It doesn’t matter who’s hurt, just as long as you’re pleased now
And that you know, you’ll only ever get scraps when you dig this low.

So go ahead, go and break yourself upon the ground
There’s always someone dumb enough to want to stick around now
But you don’t mind, you tell yourself it’s only method acting.
