lyrics

All these scenes bouncin round in my head
Must make up a bigger picture, when the frames all start to flicker
I waste time lying round in my bed
As a way to pass the hours, no more stop and smell the flowers

No director on the set but there's action anyway
I don't memorize my lines but I still know what to say
Everything is a pastiche so effort won't get in the way
If we're gonna lose our light, we can shoot another day

All these scenes bouncin round in my head
Must make up a bigger picture, when the frames all start to flicker
I waste time lying round in my bed
As a way to pass the hours, no more stop and smell the flowers

Critics all can go to hell, I don't even read reviews
How can I chew scenery when I don't hardly chew my food
I don't need no more opinions, especially not from that dude
If he can stand up and do it better he can earn that attitude

All these scenes bouncin round in my head
Must make up a bigger picture, when the frames all start to flicker
I waste time lying round in my bed
As a way to pass the hours, no more stop and smell the flowers
All the things that I'm afraid of, lesser stuff that I was made of

So inspired by the chill, only fueled by caffeine
Though my body shows some age, I'm as restless as a teen
Over budget, underwater, all around and in between
Got a long, long way to go, until we see the final scene

All these scenes bouncin round in my head
Must make up a bigger picture, when the frames all start to flicker
I waste time lying round in my bed
As a way to pass the hours, no more stop and smell the flowers
All these scenes bouncin round in my head
When that feeling starts to creep in, I just dive into the deep end
I waste time lying round in my bed
When reduced to just a fraction, I can spark some greater action
All the things that I'm afraid of, stronger stuff I will be made of
I keep running from the district, like I'm not one of the misfits
I'll dream up a bigger picture, when the frames all start to flicker
