When I was an actor it was never cool Emotions on stage in high school I didn't know who I didn't wanna be So I auditioned for the universities When I was an actor I did lots of drugs Praying in my own wacked out synagogue I played different roles every day I got good parts in every play
Never trying to find myself Always doing impressions of somebody else As I drift through this world Gotta search for my own pearl
When I was an actor perfecting my form I was dealing out of my college dorm Learning how to fuck up left and right Shaking in my bed in the dead of night Well mom and dad I am sorry That cornfed place was not for me I'll find a brand new start Just gotta learn how to drive my heart
Spitting words to folks that I wrote Feels better than any Andreyev quote Creating characters was a waste of time Cuz I didn't even know who I was inside
