"Some Lonely Day" as written by and Michael Jonathan Epstein....
I will take the stage
And read from the pages
Of an ancient text of truth
Secret plots
With a cardboard backdrop
And there's nothing left to lose
They call your name
To accuse and shame
And to tear your costumes off
Failure comes and failure stalks
Through the breathing holes
In the top

Some, some lonely day
They will break you down
And then your mind will sway
Some, some will betray
They will mark you out
And cut it all away

The opening scene
Reads like a magazine
Full of gossip, lies, and death
As you turn the page
Well don't be afraid
You can never cheat what's left
As you near the end
And the glass jar bends
Then they're looking for relief
The politician's gone
The magician's run
And the strongman is in grief

Some, some lonely day
They will break you down
And throw it all away
Some, some cold embrace
It will crush you up
And then your bones will splay

So you learn your part
And you play it well
But don't improvise or sleep
When the curtains close
And you can't go home
You might earn the role of the thief

Some, some lonely day
They will paint you up
And put you on display
Some, some fallen rays
Down from heaven come
And melt it all away…
