Lately there’s been more on my mind than I can handle

It’s like my heart’s a burning match just trying to find a candle

So I took myself out to find a scent that fancies mine

But every time I found a pretty smell, it brought a tear to my eye

I don’t deserve an aroma like this


There’s this job I found I’m perfect for; it’s been on my dreams

But it’s a job for clowns who entertain with loads of self esteem

And I’m a clown for sure, but self esteem, I haven’t known for years

That makes me a shitty clown with shitty dreams who can’t hide his tears

Now all my dreams are dead


You say that life’s about growing up and working 'til you die

You need to go to school to get a job while your dreams are on the side

Well, I’m a kid for life who’s scared of school 'cuz school killed his mind

And I’m a dreamer child who’s craving for another of his kind

Is anyone out there alone like me


I wish that I could show you my mind and all its wonder

I think that they don’t like me 'cuz they can’t see what’s under

This thick skinned boy with hippie hair and a mask to hide his face

I guess I’m scared of you 'cuz I don’t know if you’ll keep me safe

Too many scars to show you the truth


So if someone’s out there listening could you tell me who I am?

Give me a helping hand, or just help me give a damn

I need a voice of reason or a sign it’s coming through

Cuz I’m out of motivation; I don’t know what to do.
