Words & music by Nate Butler.

lyrics

LON CHANEY - words & music by Nate Butler
We were a traveling troupe
Together, until you flew the coop
All the world is a stage
I hadn't noticed 'til I turned a few heads in a fit of rage
But there's more than one movie
(Though your departure did create a void)
Still, there's more than one person ...
If I play them all, that should keep me occupied

I'd like to, but I won't see you
(You'll have to see me sooner or later)
In London After Midnight
You'll see my face, and I'll get paid, dear

But don't look for more than the latest horror
You can read the exterior, but not beyond

And I will be The Man of A Thousand Faces
And I'll be seen visiting the world's locations
Bringing characterizations through my eyes
This black-and-white life won't be colorized
But for only one audience do I read reviews, and you will see me

Haunting the Opera House; swinging in the bell tower
The kind of work I'm in now -- it lets me make up every hour

I don't claim that I'm the first; Lon Chaney was the pioneer
At hiding thoughts, I'm the worst
But with rehearsal, I'll get cleaner

So don't ask for more than the latest horror
You can read the exterior, but not beyond

And I will be like The Man of A Thousand Faces
And I'll be seen visiting the world's locations
Bringing characterizations through my eyes
This black-and-white life won't be colorized
But for only one audience do I read reviews, and you will see me
Review me
You already previewed me
If you will excuse me, please ...
