Actors

Realizing the life I create
Is what has me resigned to this fate
Reality is no more a spiral pancake
As it is a cranky housemate
Or another restless night without r.e.m.
Or a disempowering system
As I strike my fist down
I'm keeping these ideas around
Cause even they turned their frowns into a lake a love

And we're happy making trouble
Cause we’re naturally a double
Just actors being humble
Knowing real life’s a mumble
In a state of perceiving the subtle
Innuendos outliving their fumbles into limbo
To step away from their huddle
Out from the muddle
To live both for the friction
And the cuddle
