A|-0~---------| 
E|---------0~-| 
When footlights dim in reverence to prescient passion forewarned 
My audience leaves the stage, floating ahead perfumed shift 
Within the stammering silence, the face that launched a thousand frames 
Betrayed by a porcelain tear, a stained career

A misplaced reaction

The darkroom unleashes imagination in pornographic images 
In which you will always be the star, always be the star, untouchable

E|-----------|--------|------------|----------|-------------|----------| 
Unapproachable, constant in the darkness 
Nursing an erection, a misplaced reaction 
With no flower to place before this gravestone 
And the walls become enticingly newspaper thin 
But that would be developing the negative view 
And you have to be exposed in voyeuristic colour 
The public act, let you model your shame 
On the mannequin catwalk, catwalk 
Let the cats walk, and the cat walks

Chorus (as before) 
====== 
I've played this scene before, I've played this scene before 
I the mote in your eye, I the mote in your eye 
A misplaced reaction, satisfaction

Verse 2 (no gtr) 
======= 
You can't brush me under the carpet, you can't hide me under the stairs 
The custodian of your private fears, your leading actor of yesteryear 
Who as you crawled out of the alleys of obscurity 
Sentenced to rejection in the morass of anonymity 
You who I directed with lovers will, you who I let hypnotise the lens 
You who I let bathe in the spotlights glare 
You who wiped me from your memory like a greasepaint mask 
Just like a greasepaint mask

It's just begun

Your perimeter of courtiers jerk like celluloid puppets 
As you stutter paralysed with rabbits eyes, searing the shadows 
Flooding the wings, to pluck elusive salvation from the understudy's lips 
Retrieve the soliloquy, maintain the obituary 
My cue line in the last act and you wait in silent solitude 
Waiting for the prompt, waiting for the prompt
