THE JOKE'S ON YOU

I hope my death makes more cents
Than my life.


I see your picture perfect face
Staring with such empty eyes
I HATE ALL THOSE FAKE SMILES
Offering only what you deny

I REACH OUT TO BE PUSHED AWAY
Laughed at and pissed off
AND FUCKED WITH BY HUMAN FILTH
nEvER meant tO Be aLiVE

im such an inconvenience

I cannot calm my tragedy
With so many nights of anarchy
Let us watch it go up in flames
And put a smile on that face

They say I am beyond the norm
When I laugh as I bleed you
IVE SEEN THE WORST IN MAN
The throes of society, I eschew

PULL YOU CLOSER TO SEE DISGUST
Reflecting in eyes
FILLED WITH FEAR YOU CANT COMPREHEND
NeVEr meant To lEt YoU LiVE

tell me, why so serious?

I cannot calm my tragedy
With so many storms of anarchy
Let us watch it go up in flames
And put a smile on that fucking face

I used to think that my life was a tragedy
But now I realize
Its a fucking comedy.


YOU CANT CARRY A TUNE
T O S A V E Y O U R L I F E

Crack a smile at my misery
With so many nights of anarchy
The jokes on you go up in flames
And put a smile on that face

I CANNOT CALM MY TRAGEDY
WITH SO MANY STORMS OF ANARCHY
LET US WATCH IT GO UP IN FLAMES
AND PUT A SMILE ON THAT FUCKING FACE

How about another joke?
What do you get when you cross a mentally ill loner with a SOCIETY THAT ABANDONS HIM AND TREATS HIM LIKE TRASH?
I'll tell you what you get!
YOU GET WHAT YOU FUCKING DESERVE!
