Always Reel

I live my life in fast forward;
Only pausing when I sleep,
I broke the button for record;
So I could press play and never rewind,
Because it's all live and unscripted;
I'm sponsored by those that hate,
Those who pay to see me fall;
But they never see a return on,
Their "sure thing" investment;
For I never trip, never hesitate,
There are no commercials in this race;
The show always must go on,
And when the footage gets rough;
I simply improvise,
With me it's always reel;
No green screen in my truth,
The weather channel is always nice;
Because I never listen to the forecast,
I make my own sunshine;
And even when it's cloudy,
I'm always down
For the drive-in theater;
So if you're ever in my town,
Come see the show; my life; 
Yours may be on TiVo; 
But mine's candid raw...
