Sideshow

posted 16 April 2002


Life flows on so nevermind
The pieces that I leave behind
The bits of me you never see
Will still become a part of thee

Standing here outside the flow
Disconnected, a sideshow
The main act is going on
Ringmaster doesn't know I'm gone

It's a circus, no admission
Once you get your mom's permission
Nothing's very funny
But I still feel like a clown

Life's a show that I'm ad libbing
Drink it in from where you're sitting
Say the jokes that you liked best
Then go home and ignore the rest

Nothing's funny that has meaning
And my show goes on, it's seeming
That despite my greatest shows
I make no difference to the flows

Laugh on at my tragedy
I now know I'll never see
The inside of the big top
Of the circus of your minds

Life flows on so nevermind
The pieces that I leave behind
The bits of me you'll never see
Will still become a part of thee.
