THE RED NOSE IS ON

lyrics and music: valerio piccolo
listen

The clown is stuck, between the desk and the chair
Under the neon light and its damned cold rays
Don’t try to look in his eyes, there’s nothing real in there
As they follow those fake cards, and an empty solitaire

He thought it could probably work, hidden here everyday
From nine to five, where the sun is grey
Dealing with numbers and calls, this is not a conversation
He just moves his lips, but his heart is not in motion

Where is the crowd, where’s the other round of applause
And that good old sound of gasping and cries
No chance to smash those walls with a rubber hammer
Is there any other life away from the big top?

Now it’s time, it’s time, it’s time to open the cage
And let the smiling face face the people again 
No, it won’t be too late, because not everything’s gone
Yes it’s time, it’s time, tu put his red nose back on

And go back to the crowd, and to the other round of applause
To that good old sound of gasping and cries
Soon he’ll know how to smash those walls with a rubber hammer
And to live again his life, under the big top
