"My Life As A Circus Clown" as written by and Matthew/genn Good....
The lights go down
The knife man sleeps
And I wonder where you are
Trapped inside a burning mini
And I wonder where you are
You never used a safety net
I never thought that far ahead
I wonder if you think of me
While I wonder where you are

This time I lose but
I know one day
I'll win
One day I'll win
This time I lose but I know
One day
I'll win
One day I'll win

The new girl does your show at eight
And I wonder where you are
The human cannon hesitates
And I wonder where you are
If you can make me disappear a little
Can you make me disappear a lot?
Well I wonder if you think of me
While I wonder if you're not

This time I lose but
I know one day
I'll win
One day I'll win
This time I lose but I know
One day
I'll win
One day I'll win
I will

The lights go down
The knife man dreams
Of missing
Of missing
Of missing

    General CommentMatt says: "Ah, here’s a treat. I’m glad I landed on this one (and not only because I had forgotten that the handwritten copy located within the book in front of me is the original). This is a song that I wrote way back in 1995. Like Near Fantastica, it too has come up on numerous occasions (the most recent of which was during the demos for Beautiful Midnight). We recorded a version of this song in the fall of 1998 and were quite weirded out by it. The chorus was cool but the verses sounded as if Frank Zappa had been hired to write the theme music for Circus Vargas. I intend to release this song, along with a few others, on a b-sides disk entitled ‘Loser Anthems’ sometime next year (if they’ll let me). The song itself is about my life with a certain girl a long, long time ago. It’s rare for me to capture personal shit in songs with exacting measure. Usually I like to throw up some smoke and mirrors. But this one’s oddly clear. And I like it because of that."
