GREAT WORK OF FICTION<br />
Tucker Finn © 2010<br />
<br />
<br />
I’m playing the role of the actor<br />
Who’s playing the most cherished part<br />
There’s a space on my shelf for the Oscar<br />
And a speech that I know off by heart<br />
<br />
Well I’m scratching the dream where it’s itching<br />
I’m chewing on who I could be<br />
‘Cause the future’s a great work of fiction<br />
Entirely written by me<br />
<br />
I practice my lines in the mirror<br />
To make sure I look like a star<br />
Cause it isn’t the things you can do<br />
It’s who people think that you are<br />
<br />
Yeah, I’m scratching the dream where it’s itching<br />
And chewing on who I could be<br />
‘Cause the future’s a great work of fiction<br />
Entirely written by me<br />
<br />
I’m looking for people<br />
That I’d rather be<br />
So fire up the footlights<br />
And unveil the marquee<br />
<br />
‘Cause I’m scratching the dream where it’s itching<br />
But I’m wondering how long it could be<br />
‘til the future’s not merely bewitching<br />
But finally happens to me<br />
<br />
