Jester Dance is a view of a lonely Christian who is afraid to face the world because he believes that he will be mocked and ridiculed.


Jester Dance

Never a time to be myself
When I'm alone I try to forget it all
Never a time I can relate to anyone, no one
Look inside my eyes, my face is painted on
Never a day to leave this shell, no
Never a breath I can call my own
I am screaming, no one can hear me
Before you now I perform

I dance, I sing, this faceless offering
I smile, you laugh, this time's not meant to last
I cry, you sleep, with dreams of happiness
Who wears the mask?

Never a word that I have spoken
reflect the soul within, the words escape me
I hear the sound of the Jesters drum,
I stand before you now with my head bowed down,
oh see the clown

See him dance, hear him sing, it's a faceless offering
I cry while you sleep, so close your eyes

You pull, I jump, a puppet on a string
You twist, I fall, the final curtain call
But they're more moves left to be played
but your memories fade away
They fade away

Jester dance all night long
Jester dance all night long

There's somewhere else that I need to be
It's following the sunset
Never a time to be forgotten
But who's the lonely one?
Look inside my eyes, your reflection dies
