It’s an act

Act act it’s all they ever do
It’s all they ever want
It’s all they ever knew
The marquee
You never see who’s in front of you
Feathers of the flock
Just some letters in a box
The marquee

from Mr. J. Medeiros – The Marquee Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Some people only know who they want to be, not who they are, those people are all the same.

A Marquee is usually put together by individual letters- tucked a way in a box somewhere, then put up in a box that lights up.

It’s saying names like that are just plastic pieces on display.
