Deep chamber of secrets so far from our reach
They've taken the key and thrown it away.
The stage is now ours; we step into the spotlight
And recite our lines.
We fooled so many into thinking we're sincere
That the words that roll off our tongues actually MEAN SOMETHING
That we actually FEEL SOMETHING for each other,
Until we begin to believe it ourselves.
But when the spotlight goes out,
We're left by ourselves on stage
Bathed in darkness and nothing else.
