From the album The Future Now
Dm C After all is said and done, Bm D C Not very much will have been either way: Bb D I'm a chronicler of action, I'm an actor in a play. Dm C I know the lines I have to speak, Bm D C I know that I won't ever quit, or corpse, or dry Bb D but the performance gets so pointless and the days just drift on by... Bb F Every time that I go to turn the pages of the calendar C G F in the third act of this twenty-ninth year of the show G# Eb I'm aware of the latest leading lady, and get mad of her - Bbm G# F# it's perfunctory, but why she'll never know. Dm C Bb A (3x) C# E Dm C# E D Dm C When I began, I had my hopes, Bm D C believed that I could be a leading light of the stage, Bb D but now I've stunned myself to silence, exhausted all my inner rage, Bb D extinguished all my joy and violence, trapped all my feelings in a cage. Bb F Every time that I go to turn the pages of the calendar C G F I can see that I'm not really going anywhere - G# Eb all these years I have skirted round experience like a scavenger... Bbm G# F# can I really feel? - I wonder if I dare? Bbm G# F# At the end of the run, will there be anyone who cares? Bbm G# And behind the actor's pose, heaven knows F# F F# if there's anyone left in there.
