Celebrity smirk betrays your soul
Trapped in glass with nowhere to go
Limbo water in your hole
When all you really want to do is smile

Smile in a jar
You know you wanted to
Smile in a jar
When you're feeling blue
Smile in a jar
It's really so bizarre
Smile
Smile
Smile in a jar

A shadow of your former self
Head sat on a dusty shelf
People drinking to your health
When all you really want to do is smile

Smile in a jar
You know you wanted to
Smile in a jar
They've plastinated you
Smile in a jar
You can't play your guitar
Smile
Smile
Smile in a jar

Flesh falls from the dead man's soul
His blood still warm in the proctor's bowl
A frozen frown that says it all
When all you really want to do is smile

Smile in a jar
You know you wanted to
Smile in a jar
The public look at you
Smile in a jar
It looks just like a scar
Smile
Smile
Smile in a jar

Smile in a jar
You know you wanted to
Smile in a jar
The things that people do
Smile in a jar
Now you're a real star
Smile
Smile
Smile in a jar

    General CommentIt's hard to pin down my feelings on this song... it's punk, I can say that and it tells me about people being fake... it's short, but sweet.
