They put a new clown on the throne today New paint, new smile, and the same game to play He'll promise the world, but talk is cheap And I'd buy it all for a public speech again And again I didn't bother getting out of bed Got bigger fish to fry swimming in my head I have to be on time, but the trains run late How I'd like to swap places with the trains for a day Fiction begins again Fiction begins again Fiction begins again Fiction begins again Jackson Pollock was a prophet Yet it brought him only pain He captured the hearts of man With the stroke of his hand And somehow I am the same It's a martyr they want It's a martyr they'll get But attention is short And they're soon to forget again And again I've been taxed in blood I've been short of breath While my mind races with anything instead The future begins again The future begins again The future begins again The future begins again The chapel caught fire The masses all cried They mourn like death Though they'd never been inside And I begin again I begin again I begin again I begin again
