if we're actors is this the stage

I saw this one sneak up on me
I didn't want to look around the corner
I set my eyes straight and headed out the door
There wasn't a chance the creep would find me
Oh, how I've been warned
How I've been torn
Right and wrong
Wrong and right
What keeps you up at night
See, this world isn't where I belong
Why do they look so comfortable
I couldn't see how it would happen
I knew it would
You learn a thing or two
Or 37 years down the drain
What is it that slows me down
A life different from yours
How do I explain this situation
You wear shoes as well
Your philosophy surprises me time to time
I walk out this building and I don't look back
Oh, how I've been warned
How I've been torn
Right and wrong
Wrong and right
What keeps you up at night
See, this world isn't where I belong
Why do they look so comfortable
