   Song Title: Stacked Actors 
   Released: October 1999 
   Album- There is Nothing Left to Lose 
   Tabbed: 4-12-99 

   I didn't like this song when I first heard it, but it is one of those 
   that grows on you. After listening to it a few times it has now become 
   one of my favourites off the album, lyrically also.

   Oh mirror mirror, your'e coming in clear 
   I'm finally somewhere in between

   I never meant to make a big scene 
   Will you resign to the latest design 
   You look so messy when you dress up in dreams 
   One more for hire, a wonderful liar 
   I think its time we should all become clean

   God bless, what a sensitive mess 
   Yeah but things aren't always what they seem

   When you're just another ageing drag queen

About the artist behind Stacked Actors:

Foo Fighters is an American alternative rock band formed by singer/guitarist Dave Grohl in 1995.[1] Grohl formed the group as a one-man project after the dissolution of his previous band Nirvana in 1994. Prior to the release of Foo Fighters in 1995, Grohl drafted Nate Mendel (bass), William Goldsmith (drums), and Pat Smear (guitar) to complete the group. Goldsmith and Smear left after the recording of the group's second album The Colour and the Shape (1997). They were replaced by Taylor Hawkins and Franz Stahl, respectively, although Stahl left prior to the recording of the group's third album, There Is Nothing Left to Lose (1999).

Chris Shiflett joined as the band's second guitarist after the completion of There is Nothing Left to Lose. The band released its fourth album One by One in 2002. The group followed that release with the two-disc In Your Honor (2005), which was split between acoustic songs and harder-rocking material. Foo Fighters released its sixth album Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace in 2007. Over the course of the band's career, three of its albums have won Grammy Awards for Best Rock Album, and all six have been nominated for Grammys.
