lyrics

I guess every man's a method actor in his way
But we're all only extras when the world's our stage
If you really want a speaking part you better read off the page
We'll call ya, babe
We'll call ya, babe

So you're gonna be a method actor? Son, that's great
Just don't rule out turning down a role someday
You're gonna have to play yourself to promote every play
Anyway, anyway
Anyway

In the sweet chokehold of hindsight
How you strive in vain towards the truth that's plain
Where blobs obscured by spotlights
Devour and validate your pain

And this arc is only madness
When you start to deconstruct it
When you inhabit it, you're fine

Until you believe it, no one else will
So immerse yourself in it like a language till
You start dreaming in it, then go on & try to make the dream will
I bet you will
Bet you will

If you want to be a method actor, that's okay
But remember to retire before you waste away
You're gonna have to get right with you or one of these sunny days
There's gonna be hell to pay
Hell to pay, hell to pay, hell to pay

In the sweet chokehold of hindsight
How you strive in vain towards the truth that's plain
Where blobs obscured by spotlights
Devour and validate your pain

And this arc is only madness
When you start to deconstruct it
When you inhabit it, you're fine
