Marionettes Parade (rev long)
Lyrics
THE MARIONETTE'S PARADE
2010 Carney/Robinson (updated 5-9-14)

Whose strings are these that lift my arms?
What of these dreams that work their charms?
With dancing meters and bright red clothes
We entertain on tippy toes
Look at this, look at me
I wish I knew just how to be
You shake my hand, I walk like this
You only see external bliss

CHORUS
OUR ACTING IS DESERVING ALL THE LOVE THAT'S IN YOUR HEARTS
ARE YOU CLAPPING CAUSE YOU'RE HAPPY JUST TO SEE THE WAY WE MARCH
WE ENTERTAIN AND SUSTAIN YOU AS WE FILL OUR LIFE'S CRUSADE
BUT YOU FAIL TO SEE OUR TEARS INSIDE THE MARIONETTE'S PARADE

I want so much to be so real
And feel those things that people feel
I need so much to have a heart
And not to live a world apart
Pull my strings make me sing
Make me do amazing things
Let me fly don't ask me why
I hide this sadness deep inside

CHORUS (in long version only)

BRIDGE
I'm happy when I'm on the stage
That's when I feel I got it made
So sad when I'm back on the shelf
And must deny my one true self
