LOVE THE CLOWNS
(written 2017/recorded 2017)



fred the clown can run faster and longer than anybody else
and thousands of people watch fred the clown
fred the clown hits john the bear into his bearish face
while millions of people watch fred the clown

fred the clown can kick a ball into a rectangle
while billions of people watch fred the clown
fred the clown makes filthy jokes and explains the world he sees
a world that does not exist, at least not for me

i love the clowns, the idiots
´cause they satisfy me
at least they´re entertaining but
leastways they consume my time

love the clowns
love bread and games
love the food coma
idleness is my credo
a product of demand and supply
with a cold
beer in my hand
fred the clown´s my king
as he gives meaning to my
life and kills
kills my time
kills my time

run for us and
jump for us and
hit for us and
kick for us and
wear yourself out for us
and suffer for us
that‘s what we pay you for
it‘s a sale of indulgences

your paid drudgery
justifies us becoming fat
while watching the clowns
we call it passive sports
fred the clown is
my alter ego, my avatar
and since he‘s my jesus
he will die for my sins

fred the clown drops his trousers at the super bowl
and billions of people watch fred the clown
fred the clown is dropped down the order through reality shows
while millions of people watch fred the clown

fred the clown is being arrested for fiscal fraud
while thousands of people watch fred the clown
fred the clown lives in such a buzzing and enviable world
a world that does not exist, at least not for me

i love the clowns, the idiots
´cause they distract me
from something relevant to action
from something i´d like to push aside

love the clowns
love bread and games
love the food coma
idleness is my credo
a product of demand and supply
with a cold
beer in my hand
fred the clown´s my king
as he gives meaning to my
life and kills
kills my time
kills my time
