truman complex

He looked at me then and said 
'd'you ever feel like Truman? 
d'you ever feel not quite human? 
I do, all the time-
I'm still trying to find 
the exit, the back door
if life is a stage, I'd rather opt for 
see, I've unwittingly
become the protagonist 
of a story written
for me, by a director 
I cannot see. A director, I cannot fathom
and so I'd opt for the back door, 
I'd opt to find my real home
somewhere far away from the lights 
of this city, from the hidden camera's
puppets and props-
seeking tangibility, I've got lots
to prepare for....
