If I am nothing but an actor
on a stage in this dust town
of rose torn bones and washed up
stars, why is it that the galaxy sculpted
crescent moons in my palms
ache?
All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages. -William Shakespeare

'Life is but a walking shadow. A poor player who struts and frets the stage and then is heard from no more. It is a tale told by and idiot, full sound of thunder... signifying NOTHING!'

Not sure if you heard that one before, but I kinda made a connection.
