let’s turn this movie upside-down,
all the stars will just be afterthoughts,
the camera crew will turn around
to film the extras on the side lot—
+++you and I, we’re just minor characters, we shine
+++in a fraction of the screen time, I don’t mind,
+++if all we get is bit parts, at least we got to make art..

you be the funny roommate,
I’ll play the guy behind the counter,
I’ll make a latte for the lead,
as you crack wise over their shoulder,
+++you and I, we play minor characters, we learn our lines,
+++and they get cut out later, that’s alright
+++if all we get is bit parts, at least we got to make art..
++++++and the critics never panned us,
++++++they prob’ly didn’t notice,
++++++no hardcore fans have “stanned” us,
++++++but watch the credits as they roll past,
+++++++++we’re last…

+++you and I, we’re just minor characters, we shine,
