Casting Call (2015)

Sometimes it’s too hard
To play my part.
It used to feel so easy
Being me; bordering obscenity.

But what good is a clown’s laughter,
If he can never be taken seriously?

I feel so small
Trying to get it all right.
In my tired mind,
Nothing is what it seems.

The years they fly by,
But the moments stand the test of time.

I can’t help being gun shy
No matter how well I rehearse.
There’s no script to guide me;
No inspirational bible verse.

I feel so lonesome
On the hunt for perfection.

It’s like no matter how fast I run,
I’m always two steps back
Fearing rejection.

I need a breather to believe that it’s all
Still within my reach.
Maybe it’s time I start
Practicing what I preach.

Send me a sign before my heart is marred
And I’m eternally scarred.
‘Cus sometimes it’s too hard to play my part.
And in the back, the laugh track is on repeat.
