Be Amused 03:45
You bring the spotlight I'll bring the comedy For a stupid stare I'll act crazy The sound of laughter Hides my tragedy So you can't see the pain Deep inside me I crack a joke at my own expense But on the inside I'm dying I can make you laugh Leave you in suspense I'm lots of fun 'Cause I want you to be amused I want you, to be amused I'm the jester at your party All your friends say "That's funny" But when I need a friend, or need some money You don't take my call, I go hungry I crack a joke at my own expense But on the inside I'm dying I can make you laugh Leave you in suspense I'm lots of fun 'Cause I want you to be amused I want you, to be amused I'm just a side show, a two-bit comedy I'm your favorite fool, I'm nobody I want make you laugh, and think I'm funny So I can hide the pain Deep inside me I crack a joke at my own expense But on the inside I'm dying I can make you laugh Leave you in suspense I'm lots of fun 'Cause I want you to be amused I want you, to be amused I want you to be amused I want you, to be amused

Didn't their mamas teach them wrong from right? Or how to handle things without a fight? Were they born with their rotten attitude And perpetual sour mood? These disgusting men Misery benefactors Disgusting men A cast full of bad actors They always want to be the ones in charge With their oversized trucks or their fancy cars Puffed out chests and raging eyes Looking like a dumb assed donkey in a dragons disguise Because they've got some money that they can flaunt They think that they can act however the hell they want Personal privilege without a point I want to give them all a swift kick to the groin These disgusting men Misery benefactors Disgusting men A cast full of bad actors I hope that someday These men won't exist The sun will shine brighter And they won't be missed Let's take back their power Let's raise better sons We can do better So someday Someday Someday Someday Someday we'll live as one Equal and unfettered When they're gone Let's keep it that way forever

It's a script that we've used so many times A different day, but always the same tired lines Jump cut to the scene where we always seem to get into a fight Then a slow dissolve where we make up and think everything's alright We get lost in love's confusion It's a sad saga of two broken people We own the film rights and make too many sequels Jump cut to the scene where we always seem to get into a fight Then a slow dissolve where we make up and think everything's alright We get lost in love's confusion It's so typical, we started out as friends Now we're two lovers lost in the fog It's too predictable you know how it ends But we suffer through the awful dialogue And it's the same every time But it never gets old Jump cut to the scene where we always seem to get into a fight Then a slow dissolve where we make up and think everything's alright Always gotta make a scene, always gotta get into a fight Every time we make up we think that everything will be alright We get lost in love's confusion We get lost in love's confusion

Some days can be so hard that you want to stay in bed Inside you're dying and you wish that you were dead But you still push through I don't think that I would have the strength you do You have all our admiration For your strength and determination I wish that I could take away all the pain you feel You don't give up when life gets you down You keep your head up and use the love the love that's all around you I don't think that I would have the strength you do You have all our admiration For your strength and determination I wish that I could take away all the pain you feel You have all our admiration You have all our admiration You have all our admiration
