lyrics

Here's my favourite comic
Ariel Schrag’s Potential
Fearless real and honest
Honesty’s essential 
Don't lie to your friends
Don't try stratagems
Don't put on an act
Just stick to the fact
It's useless to hide
your fragile side
And don't let your chances slide

So tell me what I ought to say
In your stupid play
‘Cause it feels like a play we’re in
Do I get to see the script?
Do I have to strip?
Am I the villain or the heroine?
And tell me how you picked the cast
Were auditions passed?
Are there others who can act better?
And will you give me your address
If I don’t impress
Because I know I’m good at writing letters
 
They say that being open
Can leave your heart exposed
But how is your heart coping
All shut up and  enclosed
They say to be calm
They say “show restraint
If you are upset
Pretend that you ain’t
Just don’t lose your calm
Just don’t lose your cool”
Well I follow other rules
 
So tell me how to play this game
Does it have a name
Other than fooling about?
It feels like advanced charades
Only twice as hard
And I really can’t figure it out
And tell me when I get confused
Do I win or lose
When my feelings go unexpressed?
And will you let me see your cards?
Are they clubs or hearts?
Or are they too close to your chest?
 
I want to rise and face the world with
Openness and honesty
I want to go and find a girl with
Openness and honesty
I want to tell you how I feel with
Openness and honesty
I want to try and keep it real with
Openness and Honesty
