AND ALL THE LITTLE SLEEPING MEN
ARE RESTLESS IN THEIR SLEEP.
ALL TROUBLED BY THEIR DREAMS OF WHAT COULD BE.
AND EVEN IN THOSE DREAMS
A THOUSAND PETTY SCHEMES
ARE SLICING UP THEIR DIGNITY.
THOSE CLOWNS WHO DANCE BEFORE THEIR EYES
ARE CAREFULLY DISGUISED
AS PEOPLE WHO ARE JUST LIKE YOU AND ME.
YET NO OTHER MEN ON EARTH
ARE ALLOWED TO DO THEIR WORST
THEN WIPE THEIR DIRTY HANDS ON US.

SO SEND, SEND, SEND
SEND OUT THE CLOWNS.
WE’VE BEEN WATCHING TOO LONG,
WE NEED SOMETHING TO FOCUS ON.
SO PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE
SEND OUT THE CLOWNS.
WE NEED SOMEONE TO HELP US
SEE, SOMETHING TO HELP US
BREATHE, SOMETHING TO HELP US
BREATHE, SOMETHING TO HELP US
BREATHE.

SENSATION, ALL THIS INFORMATION
STEALS OUR CONCENTRATION
KEEPS US IN A STATE OF APATHY.
AND EVEN WHILST WE SLEEP
A THOUSAND GRINNING CREEPS
ARE FEEDING OFF OUR ENERGIES.
THOSE CLOWNS THAT DANCE BEFORE YOUR EYES
ARE CAREFULLY DISGUISED
AS PEOPLE WHO ARE JUST LIKE YOU AND ME.
YET NO OTHER MEN ON EARTH
ARE ALLOWED TO DO THEIR WORST
THEN WIPE THEIR DIRTY HANDS ON US.
THEY WIPE THEIR DIRTY HANDS ON US.

SEND, SEND, SEND
SEND OUT THE CLOWNS.
WE’VE BEEN WATCHING TOO LONG,
WE NEED SOMETHING TO FOCUS ON.
SO PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE
SEND OUT THE CLOWNS.
WE NEED SOMETHING TO HELP US
SEE, SOMETHING TO FOCUS ON.
SOMETHING TO HELP US BREATHE
SOMETHING TO HELP US BREATHE
SOMETHING TO HELP US BREATHE
SOMETHING TO HELP US BREATHE
