I play the clown for you
Entertaining, absurd hue
As I watch them laugh, I'd love to
See them clap and dance to my tune

Blowing up like a red giant
Expansive, a star
And I'm coming to burn this down
And laugh my ass off

All my children sing it again and again
'Cause a lie ain't a lie if you're winnin' 'em over
Amen

I act on stage up here
Toying with your own fears
Misdirection I'm so near
Simple sleight of hand, in the clear

Blowing up like a red giant
Expansive, a star
And I'm coming to burn this down
And laugh my ass off

All my children sing it again and again
'Cause a lie ain't a lie if you're winnin' 'em over
Amen

Too late now, show's over
Real life is much closer
Take the make up off, you wonder
Why I look the same, only bolder

Blowing up like a red giant
Expansive, a star
And I'm coming to burn this down
And laugh my ass off

All my children, sing it again and again
'Cause a lie ain't a lie if you're winnin' 'em over
Amen
