G  Bm  C  D      x2

G                           Bm
Picture a scene in your mind
                C                A                        D
Look at all the people and take note of the setting behind
C         Bm        Am            D
Listen, watch, and wait, a plot begins to take shape
G                      Bm                 C
There's a story and then, characters will come to you
A                     D
Relating events as they choose to
    C         Bm        Am             D              G
But all their words and actions come entirely from you

Am  D
             G              Bm                       C         Cm
If you're a storyteller you might think you're without responsibility
            G                    Bm               C            Cm
And you can lead your characters anywhere you want, you have immunity

G  Bm  C  D      x2

G                         Bm
Have you considered the way
               C              A                           D
People might react to all the things that your characters say?
              C         Bm      Am               D
And are their actions hand in hand with what you want to portray?
        G                         Bm
Are you sick? Are you crippled? Insane?
  C              A                            D
Expressing the desires that daren't speak their name?
C    Bm      Am       D
Are you the one to be blamed?

              G              Bm                       C         Cm
Now you're a storyteller you might think you're without responsibility
         G                     Bm                     C             Cm
But in directions, actions and words, cause and effect, you need consistency

G  Bm  C  D      x3

G                         Bm
How can you finish the tale?
Lives which have played a part
    A                   D
Are summarized from the very start
    C      Bm       Am           D
And episodes left out to make it all go your way
G                 Bm
"It's a might big world
C                A
Some of it I've seen
But mostly I've only heard
     C        Bm      Am               D         G
And stories are all fiction from their moment of birth"

Am  D
               G                     Bm              C         Cm
You're just a storyteller, you're not trying to escape responsibility
        G                        Bm                   C               Cm
If we believe you then you're successful but you don't make claims of verity

G  Bm  C  D      x4
