Your pain is nothing
Laugh
You don't feel pain
Your tears do not flow
You can not cry
Unable to show you can feel
If you can feel
There is no ache in your heart
There is no sadness
Laugh
Feeling nothing
You can not feel for yourself
It must be a bliss for you
Not showing pain, tears, heart ache
All illusions
Shadows of life
Laugh
You should not feel
Impersonating Life
Acting on what you do not know
Laugh
Amuse all around you
Be amused by all that is
You seem to show nothing but
Joy, happiness, love
Laugh
Hatred, sadness, pain
Strangers to your eyes
Yet you still cry
Smiles drawn on your lips
Color added to your cheeks
Clad in funny cloths
Laugh
Humor us
Show us the joy we do not feel
Do you know any other thing?
No
Nothing else
Laugh
Show us how you can turn
Pain into joy
Laugh
