Voltaire – Dunce lyrics

I break the silence with my voice

And everyone turns around
To see the source of all the noise

And here i stand




Its not as thought i mean to upset you

With the things i say and do

I should know better but i said so anyway


Its easier to play a part


And read your lines

Than freely speak what's

In your heart and in your mind

Is it me?

Who says these things that so offend you?

Innapropriate ???



I'd say I'm sorry

But it's hard to speak

With both feet in your mouth



All hail the king of dunces

You best hold on

I'm opening up my mouth

Bring out the maypole

And tie up and shut me out

Devil knows what possessed me
To shoot my arrow straight into the sky


String me to the mast and

Hoist me up and hang me high

I put no blame on you


I brought this all upon myself
It's just this thing i do

I wish i was someone else
At times like this




There's a lever inside head


Between my mouth and my brain
Keeps me from hearing

What i've said until it's too late


Now it's too late

Smear my lips with vaseline
Because i'm a vocal libertine
I try to explain but even


I'm not quite sure what i mean



All hail the king of dunces

You best hold on

I'm opening up my mouth

Bring out the maypole

And tie up and shut me out

Devil knows what possessed me

To shoot my arrow straight into the sky
String me to the mast and


Hoist me up and hang me high

I put no blame on you
I brought this all upon myself


It's just this thing i do
At times like this


I wish i was someone else



I don't know what to say

I was only trying to make you smile

And bring some needed levity

To your world for a while

I never meant to make you cry

But i did it all by myself


Its just this thing i do
At times like this

I wish i was someone else



All hail the king of dunces...



All hail the king of fools

This boy's been bad

Let's keep him after school

Send me to the blackboard

And write a hundred times "i am the dunce"

Devil knows what possessed me

To shut my mind and open up my mouth

String me to the anchor

And watch me drown in myself
