“The Act We Act” by Sugar

“Another big explosion, leaving you hoping that something that once held you down could leave you feeling on the ground.”

I’m watching you walk
As you walk that distant way

Take that thing away from me
Take away most everything
I couldn’t say I’d blame you
You should never look in back
You wouldn’t be to blame
If you couldn’t take it back

Hours slipping by as you watch
The worlds collide
Now you’re nothing more
Than another passerby

The dark it turns to light
In a distant flash of night
Rolling with the tide I confide
The act we wear it thin again

The thoughts that
Clutter up your mind
And leave me feeling drained
And walking pacing up the walls
Across the floor again

All the things I haven’t seen
Once the final curtain has been raised
The act we act is wearing thin
The act we act we under my skin
The words the words we said goodbye
The words left choking in my mind
The act we act is wearing thin
I think we wear it out again

Another big explosion
Leaving you hoping
That something that once
Held you down
Could leave you feeling
On the
ground

The confusion that persists
Decisions that you guessed
The one to stay and watch this
The one you might have missed

All the things I haven’t seen
Once the final curtain has been raised

The act we act is wearing thin
The act we act we under my skin
The words the words we said goodbye
The words left choking in my mind

The act we act is wearing thin
I think we wear it out again
The act we act we under my skin
The act we act we under my Forming a conclusion
And you’re left standing

CPE

I'm routinely overestimated.
