COME ON IN, BEND YOUR SKIN

COME ON IN, BEND YOUR SKIN

Standing Ovation


standing ovation
standing ovation
you deserve
a standing ovation tonight

you look lost, sad and lonely
in the spot light on the stage
taking your last curtain call
like a stoning on parade
a staring role
the victim plays
strings in serenade

standing ovation
standing ovation
you deserve
a standing ovation tonight
you have earned
for the role you play in life
you deserve
a standing ovation tonight

applause in decrescendo
acting out to pull us in
nailed to an illusion
painted on a righteous grin
the silence of an empty house
echoes deep beneath your skin

standing ovation
standing ovation
you deserve
a standing ovation tonight
you have earned
for the toll you pay in life

the curtain falls around you
the show's come to an end
usher in a closet drama
til’ auditions come again

standing ovation
standing ovation
you deserve
a standing ovation tonight
you have earned
for the role you play in life
you deserve
a standing ovation tonight
