Look at his hand move!
Check out the shape of his hips as he goes!
Well he's totally natural!
Well actually he's a white ghost
Performing in a video.
He's totally natural! (he's only an actor)

He's so beautiful to see,
But something's lost underneath,
Enter the wounded animal,
Refuse the medals they bestow
Shake a hand, take a bow
It's so au natural
(He's only an actor)
(He's on the screen...)

The chains lie broken one by one
Of the molten- sod illusion of a broken home
It's a street fight, it's a Friday night alone
It's a bottle that's warming on the shelf
It's feeling just inches away from death
It's a street, it's an icicle
It's a panic attack, it's only an act, yeah.

    General Commentyea whenever i hear "hes only an actor", im always like "yea, celebrities are really fake and we dont need to look up to them". b/c the real people we should look up to are right in front of us, not on the movie screen. i have no clue about the last stanza

    General CommentThe last stanza describes the reality underneath the act. Loneliness, alcoholism, suicide, death, panic/anxiety. That is the real scenario, despite outward perfection.

    General CommentSorry, but I don't think this song is about a literal actor. I do believe if you look past the obvious text you will see that they are talking about an actual person. Maybe a friend, maybe an enemy they feel sorry for, maybe even themselves. People are fake and even the best of us sometimes don't have our shit together.

    General Commentis it just me or could this song possibly be written about elvis presley? elvis was infamous for shaking his hips on television, and in his later years turned to drugs and alcohol.
