Track Name: Star of the Show
Just move along, it’s nothing new
No touching this and this or that
Keep your tongue inside your mouth
Don’t say a word, a whisper

Compliments I fear they’re not
Your god is not a silly face
A deity’s performance
Oh, but I’m not like that

Move along, it’s nothing new
No touching this and this or that
Don’t assign my talents
In the wrong category

‘Cross the rope, they mesmerize
My balance lost, the crowd unpleased
A deity’s performance
Oh, but I’m not like that

I don’t see the correlation
Where’s the logic if there’s any?
I don’t see the point in painting
Merry smiles on my face

You know it’s rude to stare
Balloons we fill with air
A helium-defining voice
Either way you make too much noise

Topsy-turvy
Sweetly dreaming
Toss and turning in a
Frantic state of disbelief
The crowd goes wild with applause
Over absolutely nothing

Sing a dance that goes a bit like
“La-ta-da-la-ta-la-ta-ta”
Maybe you’ll understand
I mean, it’s not that hard, you say


Pull the mask up off the clown
You’ll see the window to her soul
Deprecated acts of jest
And telling jokes you take too seriously

I don’t see the correlation
Where’s the logic if there’s any?
I don’t see the point in painting
Merry smiles on my face

You know it’s rude to stare
Balloons we fill with air
A helium-defining voice
Either way you make too much noise

I repeat: you make too much noise
I repeat: you make too much noise

A juggling act of choice
The acrobatic scene
A lion’s open mouth
The leader screams our names

Walk the rope or fall
Adorn the vivid lights
Declare the world is yours
I find it hard not to laugh

I should never be this high above the audience
In all honesty, and I mean every word
I’m not a freak
I’m not an act
I’m not a deity’s performance

I don’t think the show is ending
Everybody’s still applauding
I don’t see the point in painting
Merry smiles on my face

You know you shouldn’t stare
This really isn’t fair
Your helium-infected voice
PLEASE SHUT UP, YOU MAKE TOO MUCH NOISE

I REPEAT: YOU MAKE TOO MUCH NOISE
OH, I DON’T BELONG IN THIS SHOW
I REPEAT: YOU MAKE TOO MUCH NOISE
OH, I DON’T BELONG IN THIS SHOW
