Kero Kero Bonito - Only Acting Lyrics




When I step onto the stage, see the curtain raise
I'm apparent, I've got someone to play
All the crowd, they're in the seats
Looking straight at me for an answer
They just get what they see
They applaud and the usher's locking the door till the matinee

So I get to know the cast, though it doesn't last
I'm a pro but I won't take it too far
Now I know I shouldn't get comfy on the set
Every time it all comes down when we end
That's the truth that the stage school doesn't teach you
But it's good to know

It takes much more than just learning the script
You see, you gotta take the part and believe it
Oh, I sometimes make up all of my lines on the spot
But I will always give what I got

I thought I was only acting
But I felt exactly like it was all for real
I sure didn't know it hurt so bad
That no rehearsal could show you how to feel inside
What you gotta hide
Where to put your pride
When to realize you've had your time
Find another role
Carry on the show

You should be able to feel a performance with your whole body and soul
Now I'm gonna teach you everything I
And you, and you, and you, and you

Oh, I sometimes make up all of my lines on the spot
But I will always give what I got

I thought I was only acting
But I felt exactly like it was all for real
I sure didn't know it hurt so bad
That no rehearsal could show you how to feel inside
What you gotta hide
Where to put your pride
When to realize you've had your time
Find another role
Carry on the show

I thought I was only acting
But I felt exactl... exactl... exactl... exactl... exac...
What you gotta hi...

How to feel inside
What you gotta hide
Find another role

  1. Rachel

    Ohhh she was on that macross 82-99 song. Cool.

  2. Silent Groyper

    Negative XP is right

  3. Ghost fucker

  5. Trashy Sweetheart

    really shit music but love the video

  6. Qualimer

    exploitation-era french art film vibes

  7. Sukii xx

    Is there a version without the distortion? This is really catchy but the bit at the end kind of ruins it

    Jac Ob

    Look for the radio edit

    Sukii xx

    @Jac Ob THANK YOU <3

  8. Crime Wave

    This song Expresses all my music taste in a single video,Like dark and messy but with a cute rhythm

  9. Lluc Simon

    It kind of makes sense that the overwhelming positivity of the first releases would crash into something really dark and unsettling at some point, it's like a 2 year mdma trip. I'm (sorta) kidding tho, the album is amazing and it's not all like this, it's pretty damn impressive how they managed to really change their sound and come up with something even better.

  58. EliasMsv

    the S H R I M P L A D Y is in danger. press like to make her safe again

  59. Lil uzi verts nose bridge piercing

    Oh 😂

  60. Hairy Thotter

    Kero is a asian/white optical illusion depending on the angle

    PKSkyler

    asian/british...."white" connotates american white, no?

    Jolieke Louwers

    @PKSkyler nah, im from the netherlands and im white

    morgan yu

    @PKSkyler white is synonymous with European so no lol
    But yes the usual connotation is American, but that doesn't mean white isn't used elsewhere in the world

    PKSkyler

    for sure, thanks guys

  61. Move I’m Gay

    Okay, aside from the scary ass noises, this song is lovely lol

    PKSkyler

    well you would like the radio edit then.

  62. Jesse Garza

    Reminds me of B-mo. Love it!

  63. dj turbo fiwip 2137

    is this a reference to inland empire by d lynch tho

  64. Atomic Compiler

    Watching this video makes me really wonna hug her ...

  65. coherently retarded

    this is so autistic, if it was all on purpose I would say well done, but I highly doubt any of it was meant as a post-irony rather than "creativity"

    the whole thing feels like a sentence that was created spontaneously, one step at a time, but at the end nobody read the whole thing to check what it turned out to be

    PKSkyler

    *artistic

    coherently retarded

    @PKSkyler wow dude, nice try, you gave it your best, seems like your reply truly conveys your inner self

    i admire your effort, keep it up :)

    Pwease Adopt Me

    @PKSkyler well you got him triggered by using just 8 letters, good job mate

    PKSkyler

    @Pwease Adopt Me Internet Rule 14

    morgan yu

    What exactly are you trying to say here lol? The song is about an actor who has to learn to handle her commitment issues while continuously changing roles. This is then used an analogy for life.
    In what way is this even trying to present itself as post-ironic? How is it autistic to make analogies lol

  66. Matteo Nicoli

    Demi Lovato looks different

  67. Jake XD

    Bro did you seriously just talk during the outro?

  68. Spencer Yancey

    She's one of my new favorites.

  69. Andrea

    _I know it seems kinda tough_
    _But really it's easy enough_
    _For us to slow down the pace_
    _So we can all go take a break_
    _It's like there's not much better than nothing at all_
    _And that's especially true when there's something to do_

  70. VincentDoesSOCIALMedia

    This is awesome

  71. Alisha

  85. Justin DeVoe

    Sarah always looks like she just heard a joke from a really close friend that cheered her up to get her to stop crying

  86. Seth Putnam

    this song is a clear reference to Braudillard's great work, Simulacra and Simulation.

  87. comfortablynumb

    i literally heard only flamingo by them and this is the next song i've listened to
    i'm scared

  88. Selarom Ogeid

    Sarah is a girl just trying to make music with her bandmates but unbeknownst to her, she is actually a higher-dimensional, holographic corporeal entity who, for some reason, keeps phasing in and out of reality much to the pain and horror of her friends. However, whenever they try to put a stop to it all, the psycho-visceral spacetime pulses increase in frequency and violence, so they’re stuck trying to appease her creative moods for the foreseeable future. Though Sarah is completely unaware of the cause, she is very much aware of her friends’ despair. She senses that she is somehow to blame and this fills her with great anxiety and self-doubt, intensifying the ordeal for all in a vicious feedback loop of physical and mental anguish.
