U. D. O. – Tears Of A Clown lyrics

All his life he did his best for all
And the crown of laughter
Hanging low
The spotlight in the ring,
The choruses that sing
The paint and masquerade
Was just a show
The clown - the clown
Happiness around
Just a soul lonely in the crowd
The clown - the clown
His heart is all alone
No one wants the tears of a clown
The living of the glory and applause
The circus tent,
The only home he knows
The cover-up is bold,
The mask becoming cold
It's easier to let the eyelids close
The clown, ...
The final curtain falls for all to see
The final score, the circus melody
His star that shone so bright,
Gave comfort in the night
The light that always held him
Set him free
The clown, ...

    To me, this song seems to be about a "joker;" a person who does all he can to put on a show and be funny in order to fit in, and is worried that, if he can't keep it up, people will turn away from him. He feels that he can't allow himself to be serious, as people would mock him or simply turn a blind eye. Interestingly, I realised, after listening to this song, that I've written one very much like it, prior to buying the album. I listened to this song, and then it dawned on me: I wrote this exact same song, only with a slightly different approach. : P
