The Movies

lyrics

What did you think I wouldn't do?
I'm playing in all these movies with you.
It's my name up on the marquee after all.
And the title’s Can't We All Just Get Along.

The kitchen sink, I threw it at you.
But that doesn't mean what you think it do.
I'm just sayin I tried it all, and all wasn’t enough.
It's a shame when all the know-how ain't stacking up.

Did you even want the part?
Or are you just here to make a scene?
Now we're all suffering for our art.
Broken hearts, silver screen.

You shouldn't blink. You should just see it through.
It's not what you think. Its just you being you.
It's the way, the truth and the light and it's all at once.
And it might be over before it even starts.

Did you even want the part?
Or are you just here to make a scene?
Now we're all suffering for our art.
Broken hearts, silver screen.

You're such a fink
But I'm stuck with you.
Couldn't wash off your stink
If I wanted to.
