Clown Suit

from Annoyed Til Deaf by How Scandinavian



The manic search for validation among people who do not know what it is worth.


It was a vulgar mistake
to walk into that room
Vibrancy from her judging eyes
Coalescent days repeating until I go insane

with the relentless personalities
you needn't make a noise
cause I'm, I'm, I'm
I'm always talking to myself

I'm always in debt
So send the check so I can
cash in on the opulent smile
that I can't afford

now that all the real lectures are done
I can parse the prose of the respected
but it's such a disgrace in the desert district
because their...

people cannot maintain focus
on the problems they tend to project
with all the minor tragedies
and actual greatness dispensed

so who's gonna wear the costume
that hyperbole provides
to slip into the ranks
of the illustrious and pinnacle clown suits

your recital is set
just don't come to expect
true principles

delicate martyrs could not share or listen
but opened their snout when the free food falls out
pontic-caspian steppe's not enough distance
to properly measure my depth of disinterest

in your lecherous good intentions
persuading dignity into young easy decisions
so here's rarefied priceless advisement
play stupid games and win stupid prizes

wearing false colored borrowed plumes
no dog in that race
although that might be his girl
soon you'll have to decide
if choosing a side is a side altogether too


back at home
nothing ever changed
Where best intentions
Are the first to flake

your bottom line is
reputation made
which turn forgiveness
into a disgrace

so upon inspection
any shill can see
you're wearing the shoes of
an empty niche

for all your hard-earned sincerity
you never even had the nerve
to face me
