Icon For Hire Theater Lyrics

Last updated: 08/26/2011 11:00:00 AM

My life is a musical, I know how to put on a pretty pathetic show, I hide
Backstage, keep the curtains closed, Cause I'm scared, I'm scared

I'm getting pretty good at feeding them the lines they like, But I don't
Recognize the girl I face each night, I can compromise till I'm convinced
It's right

What happened to the girl who could overlook the world? She never gave a
Second to what the other people thought, What happened to the dream of
Rejecting the routine? Cause they never worked for me

I'm gonna burn this theater down & pray to God for the strength to help me
Face the crowd, I wanna live like I lost the script & scream every line
Like "this is it!"

They say all the world's a stage, Rewriting your itentity is all the rage,
Well next act please, I'd like a change, I don't really like pretending
This way
What happened to the girl who could overlook the world? She never gave a
Second to what the other people thought, What happened to the dream of
Rejecting the routine? Cause they never worked for me

I'm gonna burn this theater down & pray to God for the strength to help me
Face the crowd, I wanna live like I lost the script & scream every line
Like "this is it!"

I'm gonna burn this theater down & pray to God for the strength to help me
Face the crowd, I wanna live like I lost the script & scream every line
Like "this is it!"

& the sad thing is we're all in on the action, We're all holding our
Breath, waiting for a reaction, You play your part, I'll be playing with
Matches & if you'd like a show, you can follow the ashes

I'm gonna burn this theater down & pray to God for the strength to help me
Face the crowd, I wanna live like I lost the script & scream every line
Like "this is it!"

I'm gonna burn this theater down & pray to God for the strength to help me
Face the crowd, I wanna live like I lost the script & scream every line
Like...

"This is it!"
