lyrics

This has a name but the name isn't mine
I take my pulse, take my breath, take my time
And on the stage in parade you form a line
And when it's over am I horrified?

Oh no, I'm just the man behind the camera
Oh no, I'm just the man behind the screen
Oh no, I got a secret and it calls to me
It calls to me

So bury it, bury it, bury it with my body
I'm gonna carry it, carry it, carry it to my grave
Bury it, bury it, bury it with my body,
There ain't nothing left to save

I call the actors by their characters' names
I make the rules, I keep the score, and they play the game
Keep on pretending I'm the one who won't change
But does my shadow fall across the stage?

Oh no, I'm just the man behind the camera
Oh no, I'm just the man behind the screen
Oh no, I got a secret I don't dare to lose
Or choose to keep

Though I've been saving all my life
Wondering how it's gonna get me there
And if I end up with an empty prayer
Well I did it all for me, it called to me

So bury it, bury it, bury it with my body
I'm gonna carry it, carry it, carry it to my grave
Bury it, bury it, bury it with my body,
There ain't nothing left to save
There ain't nothing left
