PRETEND to be the Queen of a Kingdom in the night,
Play God up in your tower as the Clowns go out and fight.
Go shopping with your money, buy a brand new suit,
While the Barber prays forgiveness as he points his gun and shoots.
PRETEND to be a Volunteer, work behind the scenes,
In the line of duty, forced to serve among the screams.
Cure all the wounded, help them stay alive,
Wandering, homeward bound, lucky to survive.
PRETEND to have no secrets, a halo, and a mask,
Be ready to sweat blood, to do anything they ask.
Strip each night at twelve oclock, curse the lucky, stay afloat,
Each day open up the lock, never rock the boat.
PRETEND to be the Devil, Judas up for sale,
Glowing in the spotlight with two horns and a tail.
Judging all before you who trespass for desire,
Dont forgive, dont let live, burn them in the fire.
PRETEND to be a Millionaire counting all your money,
Fall in love with fame, dont you think its rather funny?
Smile on television, harmonize in tune,
Sparkle and electrify, dancing on the moon.
PRETEND to be a Spaceman learning how to fly,
Stuck on a collision course with comets in the sky.
Falling like a snowball until you hit the ground,
Be careful not to crumble while youre waiting to be found.
PRETEND to be Yourself, take off all your masks,
Sadly without ceremony go about your tasks.
The World might seem much brighter every time you close your eyes,
But you are who you are, theres no need for any lies,
You are who you are, theres no need for a disguise.
