Badflower – The Jester lyrics
[Verse 1]
Like a jester at the ball
Rub my shoulders with the kings
I was draped in gold and velvet
Breathing in applause
While I was jumping through the rings

When the cooks would sound a bell
All kings would lick their lips
But I couldn't find a placemat
Dinner table's full
And there's no room for me to sit

[Chorus]
Is there anybody out there looking out for me?
Just say you want me
Just say you need me
Is there anybody out there looking out for me?

[Verse 2]
Lord, I live to entertain
All my pride is in my praise
I hum along with this vibration
And hope to God I make it

If any chord that I could strum
Make me feel less like a man
Slam my fingers in their doorway
Shatter all the bones
So I could never strum again

[Chorus]
Is there anybody out there looking out for me?
Just say you want me
Just say you need me
Is there anybody out there looking out for me?

[Bridge]
'Cause every last soldier's fucking me over
Tears on their shoes and ice on their shoulders
Is there anybody out there looking out for me
?

[Chorus]
Is there anybody out there looking out for me?
Just say you want me
Just say you need me
Is there anybody out there looking out for me?

[Outro](3x)
Is every last soul just fucking me over
With tears on their shoes and ice on their shoulders
Is there anybody out there looking out for me?

    "Is every last soul just fucking me over?
    Feels like exasperation & a cry of despair. I've felt this way....no one worthy of my trust, reminding me of just how alone I really am.
    "With tears on their shoes & ice on their shoulders"
    Maybe all of these people I'm looking to to be trusted are carrying their own shit with head bowed & shoulders hunched, crying in their own pain, tears hitting their shoes...giving me the cold shoulder because they are so consumed with their own brokenness....I dunno...that's what I hear
