All the world's a stage
And we are merely players
Led by others day by day
To be buried in Earth's layers.
How bland our lives we live through
So scared to step out of line
Marching with our masks gripped tight
Pretending everything is fine.
Some fear the light baring down
Judging with its cold, hot rays
Yet ever-knowing of our pains
And the debts we're forced to pay.
Will someone not speak up for us?
We're dying where we stand
The humans all turn a blind eye
Too modest to give a helping hand.
And yet again we are too quick
To call a man a hero
His heart is tainted like the rest
Walk backwards to step zero.
A smile etched upon one's face
Can be forced like any other
Look past their mask into the eyes
Shining true like no other.
But until that man takes a stand
And calls out to the uncertain
We'll all be no match for ourselves
So bow and smirk and pull back the curtain.
