retarded disfigured clown lyrics – blue october

“retarded disfigured clown”

learning to love life by living through loss and mistakes.

lessons learned then gradually surfacing, letting go, stripping naked to scream.

i am not perfect nor do i strive to be, i am alive in this world of face first falls and public breakdowns.

i’m a r*t*rded, disfigured clown.

dying to be heard through the simple art of letting this heavy wall finally fall.

i’m an equal being of no race, or color, a hallucination if you will.

sneaking into the lives of strangers, and letting them fall apart to a new rhythm just to feel better.
