"Some Kind of Joke" as written by and Aaron Richard Bruno....
This day feels anything but typical
Woke up choking on a miracle
I don't know why
I don't know why

My teacher told me what I'm made for
I beg to differ in the outcome
I don't know why
I don't know why

There's nowhere to run
When you're hiding from the truth
It's some kind of joke
When the tears are bleeding blue
Looking glass fire
When the pain is caused by you
It's some kind of joke

Ow yeah ow yeah, alright.

I'm almost done with all my secrets
I'll take my time to fake a deep breath
I don't know why
I don't know why

There's nowhere to run
When you're hiding from the truth
It's some kind of joke
When the tears are bleeding blue
Looking-glass fun
When the pain is caused by you
It's some kind of joke

Ah, wait a minute

In a room full of red pretend to be dumb
We fall on our face pretend to be numb
In a room full of red pretend to be dumb
We fall on our face pretend to be numb

There's nowhere to run [screaming]
When you're hiding from the truth
It's some kind of joke [screaming]
When the tears are bleeding blue
Aw looking-glass fun [screaming]
Aw when the pain is caused by you
Sometimes we choke
And sometimes we choke

Sing
Sing
Alright
Sing with me
Sometimes we choke
It's some kind of joke

    My InterpretationLooks like an existential crisis:

    This day feels anything but typical
    Woke up choking on a miracle
    I don't know why
    I don't know why

    *feel good when you wake up, so full of joy you're choking on a miracle. But it doesn't make sense

    My teacher told me what I'm made for
    I beg to differ in the outcome
    I don't know why
    I don't know why

    *You're told you'll be successful and that you're meant for something big, but it doesn't add up to you.

    There's nowhere to run
    When you're hiding from the truth
    It's some kind of joke
    When the tears are bleeding blue
    Looking glass fire
    When the pain is caused by you
    It's some kind of joke

    *So, life feels like a joke, unreal, almost funny.It hurts to watch it.

    I'm almost done with all my secrets
    I'll take my time to fake a deep breath
    I don't know why
    I don't know why

    *I'm not sure about the secrets line. But faking a deep breath sounds like you're pretending it's okay.

    In a room full of red pretend to be dumb
    We fall on our face pretend to be numb
    In a room full of red pretend to be dumb
    We fall on our face pretend to be numb

    *The room isn't full of red, you're seeing red because you're angry. Maybe at something or someone else, but you play dumb and ignore it. When you're hurt, you pretend you don't feel it.

    Sing
    Sing
    Alright
    Sing with me
    Sometimes we choke
    It's some kind of joke

    *It's some kind of joke, but hey, at least you're not alone.

    General CommentGood stuff from one of the only bands that stays true to who they are, where who they are is something to be desired. Fabulous.
