There once was a puppet.
That lived her life on a strange stage.
Few could see her strings,
The puppet seemed so very real.

She lived her life on a strange stage.
In a never ending performance,
The puppet seemed so very real.
So, the audience applauded blindly.

With a never ending performance,
She deceived, even herself.
So, the audience applauded blindly.
She pretended to be a real girl.

She deceived, even herself,
Setting the world on Gray scale.
She pretends to be a real girl.
The hollow insides wore away.

Setting the world on Gray scale.
The puppeteer was never pleased,
The hollow insides wore away.
It's puppet cracked at the seams.

The puppeteer was never pleased,
Forcing the strangest impossibilities
It's puppet cracked at the seams.
Both play games on the same stage.

There once was a puppet.
Who forced out an act.
Few could see her strings,
Until they snapped.
