Straight Man

Verse 1:

Everyone's a joker, everyone likes a clown.

So why is the punchline always bringing somebody down?

Many like the spotlight but can't always fit the bill.

And then they carry down with them a sucker who's ready at will.

 

Chorus:

I won't be your straight man

I don't care to be your page

Forever gone is this chapter I'm setting a whole new stage

I won't be your straight man

I don't care to be your page

Forever gone is this chapter I'm setting a whole new stage

 

Verse 2:

Well, jump off that pedestal before it begins to fall

Beware of empty stardom or solitude starts to call

You don't have to be the leader, you needn't march to the band

Stop making yourself look better come out of the clouds and land

 

Chorus:

I won't be your straight man

I don't care to be your page

Forever gone is this chapter I'm setting a whole new stage

I won't be your straight man

I don't care to be your page

Forever gone is this chapter I'm setting a whole new stage
