Actor (I'm Not Okay)

Can I pretend that you like me for who I am?
Can I act like the nod you gave me means you understand?
Can we follow preset scripts without deviations?
Can we make like machines and automate our responsive emotions?

Can I pretend that you like me for who I am?

Playing cover up operations, playing actors on a screen,
Playing politics,
You never really say what you mean,
And you never really mean what you say,
And you don't really care about me,
And you know I'm not okay,

Can I pretend that I can make it through everything on my own?
Can I act like I'm happy and you don't really know?
Can we adjust the lighting so you look better in comparison?
Can we make like professionals, like all this trouble is worth having?

Can I pretend that you like me for who I am?

Playing cover up operations, playing actors on a screen,
Playing politics,
You never really say what you mean,
And you never really mean what you say,
And you don't really care about me,
And you know I'm not okay,

You're only going to want me when I'm happy,
You're only going to want me when I'm pretending,
But you're supposed to be able to count on me,
And I'm supposed to mean something,
To you...

But I don't,
And we're
Just actors,
And you're,
Pretending,
And I'm,
Regretting,
Giving you,
Everything,
All away,
And I'm,
Not okay,
And you,
Notice,
But you,
Make like,
It's nothing,
Nothing,
At all,
After all,
The times,
I dug you,
Out of holes,
This,
Is the road,
You want to go,
And you're an actor,
And I'm not okay.
No, I'm not okay.
