Lyrics

Now takin' his place inside the ring
Is a man with all of every vision of tomorrow
Although I gotta admit
He still stinks of yesterday

I am a broken clown
Built to tread
Destined to
Drowning my sorrows in corn
Which I acknowledge
I am not a man
To deny my rhyme
My reason, my why
Sweep it all under the rug
Slap my face
It's showtime
My public awaits
I will give my all tonight
Many a happy child
I do what parents cannot
I will not kiss your baby

Hundred proof, flames start to smother
Broken ashtray, thoughts of another
Bloodstained mattress, hotel matches
Ship's a goin' down

Feel like a flint in a Zippo lighter
Grind me down 'til my spark burns brighter
But tonight I'll sleep in my baby's arms
Wherever she may be

Hundred proof, flames start to smother
Broken ashtray, thoughts of another
Bloodstained mattress, hotel matches
Ship's a goin' down

I will bring the house down tonight
I will tear down the big top tonight
This night shall be the one that I dream of in dreams
This night I'll be the one to answer my prayers

Set free the animals
From their cage to roam
The streets are my enemies
They lay down
Just to let me walk
Into another blind alley
Then they attack
But I will not turn back
For tonight
I walk among the dead
And I am lost
No one will give directions to a broken clown
No one ever loves a broken clown
