Lyrics

The actor
(R. williams)

Principal actors to the stage please
Act one is about to begin in 8 seconds

Verse one:
First you can't act, now you can't stop
(What's my motivation?)
I used to like you... a lot
(I was the class nerd)
Exactly who I'm s'posed to be
(I'm totally strasberg)
You play a doctor on tv
(What you're doing is so brave)

Verse two:
Deep down you're dirty but you try
(I'm a good person)
The truth would break you so you lie
(I want my work to matter)
It's in the choices that you make
(I want to inspire)
No talent, just fate

Chorus:
I don't know where you begin
I end, we start
Again
They need, you love
We all watch
The actor acting

Verse three:
Good from far but far from good
(All I have is my instinct)
You love to act, I wish you would
(It's not acting, it's re-acting)
Act like you're not from out of space
(When I'm on stage I feel alive)
You know ambition isn't grace
(For me it's the craft)

Verse four:
Made of sex, maida vale
(Would I do better in new york)
You are the alpha male
(I'm just too pretty for that role)
You are the good, you are the great
(The words have power)
Now let me fill you with my hate

(Chorus)

Middle 8:

D-d-d-d-dame d-dame d-dame judi dench

Outro speech:
In the future
Everybody will be anonymous for fifteen minutes
You are, we all are a test card
The stars of cctv
We are the nature of the beast
