actor

make me the monster

in your mind.

i will play the part.

spin your story,

the one to bring you glory.

i know the love in my heart.

paint me the villain

upon your canvas.

i won't get in the way.

tell your tale,

the one where i fail,

if that gets you through the day.

cast me as a criminal, baby

i can take it.

report of my mortal sin.

stand on your stage

deliver lines from your page.

i won't apologize again.

ladies and gentlemen

i'm taking a bow,

a beastly acceptance of fate.

tis better for him to hold onto this,

for the hour is getting late.

a perfect man

he did no wrong,

never a mistake made.

the audience will see,

the victim was he,

and she a wretched downgrade.

make me your monster, darling,

and sleep soundly through the night.

sweetest dreams of my theft,

i'm exiting stage left.

out of love,

out of fight.

You mustn't live so lightly,

Spin your stories, tell your tales,

Let them dance across the oceans

And set the wind upon your sails.

For every truth found on your travels

And in the pits of your despair,

Is a shout into forever

Of "I existed, and I cared."
