"Last Clown" as written by and Oliver/paridjanian Knights....
Last clown, drinking in a bar that's about to be closed down
A hero, I was in people's plans I was shaking their hands
I got lost in the world, slow motion walking and diatribe talking
As bad as things be, I'm a natural survivor

I was a young man, with the keys to the plans held within my hands
I knew everything, except the tick tick tock of the hourglass sands
I got lost in the world, slow motion walking and diatribe talking
As bad as things be, I'm a natural survivor

Last clown, with your dreams so shallow
You will learn you can never return
Though the grand scheme of things may seem re-arranged
People smile, but they never ever change

So if you see me walking around in the streets of your town
Don't feel for me, I've got more peace of mind than you ever shall find
I was lost in the world, slow motion walking and diatribe talking
As bad as things be, I'm a natural survivor

My boy, with your dreams so shallow
You will learn you can never return
Though the grand scheme of things may seem re-arranged
People smile, but they never ever change
Last clown
Last clown
Last clown

    General Commenti think this is about a boy who doesnt want to grow up and accept that things are changing around him. everyone he used to be surrounded by had moved on with their lives and he is still just there clowning around, in denial that the world is moving on without him. made me want to cry when i first heard it.
