Lyrics


Well I bet you'd feel like talking if I was filming a movie

About your life and what it really means from the outside looking in
As shadows fill the wall of a cave in a downtown theatre
All your mistakes add up, well it's a real tear-jerker

Your life, it's such a mess
But everyone's impressed

When I play
Make no mistake
I play
Make no mistake

Well it's not the way it should be
It's how it's gonna be
It's not a flash back, it's a memory
All eyes are fixed on you

Fade in, your past crashes in waves on the lawn
Fade out, your last laugh lasts a little too long
In your contract, there's a clause
So you'd better save your applause

When I play
Make no mistake
I play
Make no mistake

Well I'd bet you'd find inspiration if I loaned you a car
With a map to the homes of porno stars
I know you dream about that stuff 
On video, when you're alone, you can't get enough of her
But inside her own home, boy, you can't get it up for her
Send in the stunt man

Your family will be so proud
You're gonna have to peel them from the couch

When I play
Make no mistake
I play
Make no mistake
Make no mistake

Well if I say act right now in something you believe in
I bet you'd say all the good ideas have already been taken
So let the vultures have their way

Emptying the shelves in the bargain basements
Filling the same frames with different places
So take one last look at yourself
Because the film is running out
