Here we are, set on stage like puppets

Here we are, set on stage like puppets.

We are behind the scenes, constantly fixing out masks that we wear in front of other performers

We've been practicing for what seems like eternity,

Hours of perfecting our parts in this little play.

We learn the moves, the lying, the cheating, the large fake smiles come naturally

During our performance, we can be the under studies, hoping the main roles screw up,

Or be the king and queen who never miss a line and take all the credit.

At the end we all hold hands, bowing with our enemy to the left, and right.

We are the characters, our life is the production, and our audience is the world.
