Viewing the same scenes and scapes

From a different place

I've had that role, I've played that part

I know every line by heart


When I recite it now again

I can still feel the pain

Infused with the words you say

Reflected by expressions you display


The applause will roll and fade

In each moment's masquerade

Though the madness we illustrate

No other cast can replicate


This is no ordinary drama group

No actors can play our parts

Or speak our truth

That was me and that was you


It moves me greatly to confess

The tragedy was no pretense

And when the curtains close on us…

Let this be the end
