you’re not laughing

the loony farm called and they want their prized pig back
they want to give their favorite dirty bat a bath
it’s kind of hard to wash your face under a mask
but i can shave it off, they don’t need it attached

laughter is the greatest medicine on earth
with a smile so wide, you can feel the hurt
they say laughter is the greatest medicine on earth
overdose and you might get blood on your shirt.

it’s a good thing the world has its psychopaths,
or else what good what hope would you have
what finger could you point, and where, and what at
when God asks who you weren’t and how you didn’t act

you’re only good as God through the world allows
in a given situation you could throw in the towel
don a mask plastered with your illusion of power
make the kiddies cry and your fellow men cower

you don’t want to know how i got these scars man
you don’t want to know how i got these scars man
you don’t want to know how i got these scars
you don’t want to know

who are you kidding? a clown with hockey pads
you’re the biggest joke, you’re the biggest laugh
self-righteousness is a hell of a mask
but i really wouldn’t know anything about that

whatcha gonna do when you’re under the shoe
the same size and shape that for now fits you
it was never your choice, your decision to choose
‘see yourself become?’ ha! just follow the clues
