The Clown

my hometown

what hometown?

No one ever came around

they just flapped their gums

actin’ like they have no past

Go ahead use my name

to reclaim your fame

but your broken ladder

will bring you back to the same

ground

you lied upon

when I looked in your eyes

and told you you could be a surprise

or choke on your own lies…

My hometown?

I wanna stage a throwdown

but I’ll play the clown

but my makeup will become a smile

no longer a frown

and your face won’t need the makeup…

cuz’ you just fake it up

so naturally…

thinking your ahead of me…

but you won’t ever find thee

at your show…

I’ll be at my own…

laughing at all your blows…

Go ahead use my name

to reclaim your fame

but your broken ladder

will bring you back to the same

ground

you lied upon

when I looked in your eyes

and told you you could be a surprise

or choke on your own lies….

i believed in you

when no one else did..

I ate every frown for you

Now I wait to watch you

choke on your fake smiles

filled with misplaced pride

cuz you gotta hide…

behind my name

behind my name….
