If all the world is a stage then are we not merely actors

showing the people of the world what they want to see

we condemn the ones who lie for playing their part

when we are all false from the very start

hiding our truest intents for fear of being seen

when all we want is to live in our dreams

dreams filled with happiness and hope 

to feel the truest love from the one 

we will view as sent from above 

but when the curtain falls we will see

our lives were lies both you and me

and when the stage is set anew

maybe the next act can be true
