This song., which is sung from the perspective of a cinema house version of The Phantom of the Opera is a metaphor for that negative human characteristic we sometimes fall into, where we project our image or our perfect parter on someone instead of taking the time to get to know who they really are.

Lyrics:
Don't move, don't speak
Don't blink, just leave it up to me
I've got a mind and
it's like a laser beam light

Don't cry or complain
It's no use
'Cause it's all the same
Won't matter once I've got you in my sight

Well, you were living your life
When I came along
Never wondered if it was right or wrong
You had a nice smile and a pretty face
I unlatched my case

I flicked the switch
You heard a whir
Surprised by what had just occurred
You thought to run
But something made you stay

I'm the projectionist
I'll lay the scene
I'll shine my beam on your movie screen
I've got some months or years to kill
Just hold still you're gonna ruin the film!
I'm a perfectionist
If I get it right
I'll wrap you up in a dream tonight
And the dream will play
As long as you can stay

What's that you say?
Hush now, don't matter anyway
It's rude to argue while the movie plays

You moved your lips but I couldn't hear
With the soundtrack blaring in my ears
I'm sorry if I don't know what you said
If you don't move 'til the very end
I'll want to play the film again
If I do it will be hard to break away

I'm the projectionist
I'll lay the scene
I'll shine my beam on your movie screen
I've got some months or years to kill
Just hold still you're gonna ruin the film!
I'm a perfectionist
If I get it right
I'll wrap you up in a dream tonight
And the dream will play
As long as you can stay

Would it kill you to play along?
(Just sit there like you belong)
Would it kill you to be?
(Part of my personal fantasy)
Would it kill you to lie?
(Just lie there and smile like a brushing bride)
It would make you interesting
Probably more than you really are!

I'm the projectionist
I'll lay the scene
I'll shine my beam on your movie screen
I've got some months or years to kill
Just hold still you're gonna ruin the film
I'm a perfectionist
If I get it right
I'll wrap you up in a dream tonight
And if it plays
You'll never get away
