about

The circus is in town and this time they are teaching us their mantra---fuck it---enjoy life---stop trying to be like everybody else. An ode to my anxiety.

lyrics

We follow the formula
They gave us the tools
We all crawl to the top of the stairs where our thoughts have been pooled
We’re weighed down with order
We itch and we scratch
We all patiently wait for the next chance to distract
Swallowing dry
Hoarding happy
Ice cold alarms are ringing
You’re looking at normal and it’s ugly
We are juggling our values
We are painting on our frowns
we are magicians
We laugh we laugh we laugh till we all fall down
I read through the headlines
My mind starts to run
Repeatedly making me fear all the bad that could be done
Before I can hide
My body shuts down
I need a disguise if I’m going to go out and around
Pre-chorus
Chorus
Hahahahhhahahhahhhahahahhhhaaaahahahahah!
Chorus
