Popular postcards drip down in the drain,

Chasing the voices that crawl into my brain,

Till the laughter that's left just seems vile and insane.

I am the clown that you'd all like to be.

The saddest damn clown that you'll ever see.

Ain't it fun to be laughing at someone like me?

-

I bathed everyday in the anger and shame,

Hatred and hope seemed completely the same,

Until I was sure I deserved every blame.

I am the clown that you'd all like to be.

The saddest damn clown that you'll ever see.

Ain't it fun to be laughing at someone like me?

-

Afraid of the shadows of the demons in flight,

That slip past the chances like ghouls in the night,

I'm so empty and hollow, just some wreckage of sighs.

I am the clown that you'd all like to be.

The saddest damn clown that you'll ever see.

Ain't it fun to be laughing at someone like me?

-

Now I hide behind ruffles and greasepaint and cheers,

A genius of wit, so they've told me for years,

Does it mean all that much when I hate being here?

I am the clown that you'd all like to be.

The saddest damn clown that you'll ever see.

Ain't it fun to be laughing at someone like me?

Better run if you run into someone like me.
