lyrics

I am not a writer; I am not a poet
I am lost but the words don't show it
I am not a monk; I'm not at peace
Listen as my soul screams for release
I am an actor; I wear a mask
It is in your applause that I will bask
I am a paradox; I am a contradiction
My scars won't let me forget about the friction
I am not a good man; I am not your friend
Each night before sleep I await my end
I am not safe; I don't know where to start
My head is constantly fighting off my heart
I am a fool; I am the Joker
A pseudo-intellectual abyss-approacher
I'm all alone; I'm all alone
I cannot be known, so I'll stay alone

I am not a writer; I am not a poet
I am lost but the words don't show it
I am not a monk; I'm not at peace
Listen as my soul screams for release
I am an actor; I wear a mask
It is in your applause that I will bask
I am a paradox; I am a contradiction
My scars won't let me forget about the friction
I am not a good man; I am not your friend
Each night before sleep I await my end
I am not safe; I don't know where to start
My head is constantly fighting off my heart
I am a fool; I am the Joker
A pseudo-intellectual abyss-approacher
I'm all alone; I'm all alone
I cannot be known, so I'll stay alone

I am not a writer; I am not a poet
I am lost but the words don't show it
I am not a monk; I'm not at peace
Listen as my soul screams for release
I am an actor; I wear a mask
It is in your applause that I will bask
I am a paradox; I am a contradiction
My scars won't let me forget about the friction
I am not a good man; I am not your friend
Each night before sleep I await my end
I am not safe; I don't know where to start
My head is constantly fighting off my heart
I am a fool; I am the Joker
A pseudo-intellectual JiéShù-approacher
I'm all alone; I'm all alone
I cannot be known, so I'll stay alone
