Overture - Icon for Hire

My life is a musical, I know how to put on a pretty pathetic show, I hide Backstage, keep the curtains closed, Cause I'm scared, I'm scared

I'm getting pretty good at feeding them the lines they like, But I don't Recognize the girl I face each night, I can compromise till I'm convinced It's right

What happened to the girl who could overlook the world? She never gave a Second to what the other people thought, What happened to the dream of Rejecting the routine? Cause they never worked for me

I'm gonna burn this theater down & pray to God for the strength to help me Face the crowd, I wanna live like I lost the script & scream every line Like "this is it!"

They say all the world's a stage, Rewriting your itentity is all the rage, Well next act please, I'd like a change, I don't really like pretending This way [ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsfreak.com/i/icon+for+hire/theater_20981143.html ] What happened to the girl who could overlook the world? She never gave a Second to what the other people thought, What happened to the dream of Rejecting the routine? Cause they never worked for me

I'm gonna burn this theater down & pray to God for the strength to help me Face the crowd, I wanna live like I lost the script & scream every line Like "this is it!"

I'm gonna burn this theater down & pray to God for the strength to help me Face the crowd, I wanna live like I lost the script & scream every line Like "this is it!"

& the sad thing is we're all in on the action, We're all holding our Breath, waiting for a reaction, You play your part, I'll be playing with Matches & if you'd like a show, you can follow the ashes

I'm gonna burn this theater down & pray to God for the strength to help me Face the crowd, I wanna live like I lost the script & scream every line Like "this is it!"

I'm gonna burn this theater down & pray to God for the strength to help me Face the crowd, I wanna live like I lost the script & scream every line Like...

"This is it!"
