Limelight Lyrics

Living on a lighted stage
Approaches the unreal
For those who think and feel
In touch with some reality beyond the guilded cage

Cast in this unlikely role
Ill-equipped to act
With insufficient tact
One must put up barriers
To keep...

    “All the world’s a stage and we are merely players” alludes to this life on earth being just an illusion. “In touch with some reality beyond the gilded cage” there is more to life than this life on Earth. “The real relation, the underlying theme,” connecting to others on a soul/eternal level.

    It is saying if you want to be part of something that you're not you have to put aside the alienation. Definition for alienation is the state or experience of being isolated from a group or an activity to which one should belong or in which one should be involved. Those who wish to be need to put aside the alienation. If you want to be part of something, don't wait for it to happen you need to make it happen by not letting anything scare you

    This song is about the masks people wear "to seem". the "real relation" is the personal relationship with christ which should be the underlying theme of all action a man takes
