An Honest Take On The World

An Honest Take On The World

Take off the mask
And face the crowd
For the stage of life is large and daunting
Shun wishful thinking and thoughts of things that will never be.
Reality is the name of the game
Come, let’s take an honest take on the world!

With the cameras always rolling
Moral value; is the entrance fee paid
Compromising on friendships is the key to the deal
To grab a front row seat and hog the limelight is chic
And in that, there may be some comfort
For the people who stab you in the back
Come, let’s take an honest take on the world!

The stage is set
The final credits have been made
The crowd sits in silence, waiting;
Waiting for you to make that wrong move
And then it’ll tear you down to bits like a pack wolves
and gorge on its unassuming prey.
Come, let’s take an honest take on the world!

Even the most sensitive soul hardens up
Standing tall; heart pulsing,
He learns to takes the beating
All the while buffering his feelings
And even while his insides are screaming
He handles it all with a fake smile.
Come, let’s take an honest take on the world!

For good bad or worse; always in front of an audience, acting the parts,
He smiles, even as his dreams crumble, he smiles
His eyes searching for the hidden truth
He knows maybe he’ll never find
He searches. Over and over again he searches
For he knows this is life and not a rehearsal.
Come, let’s take an honest take on the world!

Scared of being alone, acting in fear
Following everyone’s rules as a puppet
Tied to strings that hold us together
He seeks an audience out there
Someone… who would love to see him perform,
But alas he’s all alone
Come, let’s take an honest take on the world!

The stage. The lights. The applause.
The concert. The recital. The performance.
The people. The masks. The pain.
The moments. The memories. The glories.
The dreams. The manipulation. The humiliation.
And great curtains come crashing down.
Come, let’s take an honest take on the world!
