Wolfgang – Cast Of Clowns lyrics

Father, I know now
Your life's been stretched too long
Across paper torn and crumpled
Was drawn the garden
That we've sown

You made,
You made,
You made,
So damn happy
Wanting to follow you around
But leading a cast of clowns
How could you expect me
To worship your name

Father, I know now
It's etched too deep in sand
I'm sorry... So so sorry
I couldn't wipe it with my hands

You made me,
You made me,
You made me,
So unhappy
You made the sky come down
Leading a cast of clowns
How could you expect me
To worship your name

Father, I smile now
Wings have stretched to the sky
When I look up at the heavens
I'll see your face in the stars at night

You made me,
You made me,
Again you made happy
The stage has been turned down
The clowns have lost their crowd
Now just sleep well and sound
Quietly rest
Quietly rest

    I am not sure what the meaning of the song is, but I think the writer was talking to God. He was saying "you are making me laugh (you made happy). You were expecting me to worship You when your church/Bible people are doing bad things?" The church/Bible people who are doing bad things were referred to as cast of clowns cause they are making the song writer laugh. People go to church and say sorry, thank you and I love you Lord, but when they are outside the church, they are arrogant, traitors, liars, etcetera. Etcetera. I think it would be better if Basti Artadi will enlighten us about the lyrics. Nevertheless, I love this effing song so much! Amazing! Amazing! Amazing!

    Here's my interpretation of the song. The cast of clowns refers to religious leaders, not to the church goers. The writer expresses how much he wanted to worship God. But he can't find the right religion. Do they preach or do they just say meaningless speeches?
