GREAT WORK OF FICTION

Tucker Finn © 2010


I’m playing the role of the actor
Who’s playing the most cherished part
There’s a space on my shelf for the Oscar
And a speech that I know off by heart

Well I’m scratching the dream where it’s itching
I’m chewing on who I could be
‘Cause the future’s a great work of fiction
Entirely written by me

I practice my lines in the mirror
To make sure I look like a star
Cause it isn’t the things you can do
It’s who people think that you are

Yeah, I’m scratching the dream where it’s itching
I'm chewing on who I could be
‘Cause the future’s a great work of fiction
Entirely written by me

I’m looking for people
That I’d rather be
So fire up the footlights
And unveil the marquee

‘Cause I’m scratching the dream where it’s itching
But I’m wondering how long it could be
‘til the future’s not merely bewitching
But finally happens to me
