I guess it's funnier from where your standing
Coz from over here I miss the joke
Clear the way for my crash landing
I've done it again
Another number for your notes

I'd be smiling if I wasn't so desperate
I'd be patient if I had the time
I could stop and answer all of your questions
As soon as I find out 
How I can move from the back of a lie

(Chorus)
So I'll be your clown
Behind the glass
Go 'head and laugh
Coz it's funny
I would too if I saw me
I'll be your clown
On your favourite channel
My life's a circus circus
Round in circus
I'm selling out tonight

I'd be less angry if it was my decision
And the money was just rolling in
If I had more than my ambition
I'll have time for 'please'
I'll have time for 'thank you's
As soon as I win

(Chorus)

From a distance my choice is simple
From a distance I can entertain
So you can see me
I put make-up on my face
But there's no way you can feel it
From so far away

(Chorus)
