Track Name: Not Long For This World
Whether in a cameo or as the star of the show
We're only actors here, pissing in the snow
We try on costumes, accents and masks
We learn our lines sufficient to the task
Of taking on a major role or just a walk-on part
And when we take our final bow, it's just another start
From pilot to finale, from read-through to wrap
In the editing-bay of memory where we cut out the crap
The final product deemed by critics weak or strong
As the roll credits over a funeral song
Not long,
Not long for this world
Not long, not long
Not long for this world
Not long, not long
We're not long for this world
Not long, we're not long
We're not long for this world
