All the world is a stage,
The players playing their parts,
Nailed to the cross of righteous rage,
Their strings are ever pulled by the winds of change.
The eternal joke,
The ultimate punchline,
Lonely Pagliacci knew*,
But never told,
Laughing with tears in his eyes,
If everybody knew,
They'd be laughing too.
