"A man's attitude it goes some way
To determine how his life will be"
Hairless brows give way to pools of darkness
"Is that something with which you'd agree?"

With the lights on
The stage falls out of my control
Foregone
Appeasing those who do not

Know me
Dismiss ideals as dreams

Is he angry? Is he patient and jaded?
Is there sadness in that vacant stare?
Just a remnant of a youthful ambition?
Was he also one who did not care

For the good life
Is this all that I have to look forward to?
The only path to take
Proclaimed in neon lights

Above me
Single file, we march, free.

There is sometimes a buggy
And we always ride
A quiet, peaceful life
But then who drives?

When I come across Camilla
From the photograph that they made sure I'd see
Will I lean to the producers
And surrender what's left of my dignity?

I can't stare into his eyes
Expressionless face
I'll take what's mine
A photocopied fate

Yet every night I see my Eve
My serpent's fruit, my favorite dream
She takes me away from everything
No choice to make, I am redeemed

If I
I come across the Cowboy
Two times
Then let the world remember

Only
I was right to act wrongly

And while he walks away
Lights flickering, then gone
I'm left out on the stage
So I stare towards the sun
My audience of one.
