sad clown lyrics – jars of clay

say how’s the weather, so i look out the window
to brighten my soul, but i can’t control the rain
that keeps falling
smile on the outside that never comes in
a comedy, mystery, irony, tragedy
so i scream “let the show begin”

you break me open, turn on the light
stumble inside with me, with me

do i entertain you?
do i preoccupy you with my wit to cover this lie?
are you mesmerized?
do you think me faithful, do you think me a clown?
i picked out this shirt, i put on this hat
i wore all this paint just for you
