ALL FOR SHOW

It's not enough to be alone with your thoughts

It's not enough to take your time

You've got to look for the spotlights

You've got to take your chance to shine

It's not enough to draw the curtains

To seek the comfort of your kin

You've got to show the world you're hurting

You've go to get it all on film

All the wreaths and tributes

The tears

The selfies

The eulogies

It's all for show

It's all for show

It's all for show

It's not enough, this quiet reflection

You cannot be just left in peace

You've got to give your pound of flesh

You've got to give them all a piece

It's not enough to hold your loved ones

To seek their solace in your pain

You've got to lay it on so thick

That it imprints within their brain

 

All the wreaths and tributes

The tears

The selfies

The eulogies

All the rubbernecking

The tired emotions

Crocodile tears

It's all for show

It's all for show

It's all for show
