lyrics

Another Way to Entertain by thedarkprep

I see you in the crowd,
A blurry silhouette,
The spotlight’s yet to blind me-
Your whispers carry through
As I take the mic and stage
The written page
Alone you stand politely

I see it in your eyes,
I know you’re not impressed
You think it’s all the same

But I will not release
Your mind until I find
A way to entertain

A way to entertain

I’m not another singer with a story to tell
Just a soul to sell for your attention
Oh what a convention!
The lengths I must go to to get you to mention
The words from my mouth in a passing reflection
I tried being honest but held no retention

And not to mention,
The smiles that hide the times that I fell
They said I wear arrogance well
But I wouldn’t know my dear mademoiselle
So let us rebel

In the noise and the chords
and the pounding as well
Without allowing a moment to dwell
On the tears and the heartache of the personnel

You will not tune me out
We’re on another tier
You will remember, you saw us here
Another minute of your time, now
I want to make it clear

I see it in your eyes
I know you’re not impressed
You think it’s all the same

But I will not release
Your mind until I find
A way to entertain

I may be a jester, but I’ll give all I’ve got
My blood, my tears, my dreams so you can’t say that you forgot

The name

I’ll struggle until nothing remains
But you’ll never say I settled for fame

I see it in your eyes
I know you’re not impressed
But I will find a way to entertain
