The Song Song Poem by jon groff


Well one day I was taking a walk down the street,
When suddenly I realized there was nothing beneath my feet
So I decided I'd very calmly try to be discreet
When all of a sudden I heard the most euphoric drum beat

What's this I do believe I'm sinking down?
In front of me could it truly be a two-headed clown
Well you don't really question these things when you're trying not to drown.
Trying not to drown in the pool of madness in the middle of town.

Have I lost my mind or is it just you?
Could you help me piece back the puzzle with a little bit of glue?
If you tell me there's no hope, well that's nothing new.
You say it'll be all right but we both know that ain't true.
 
I'm trying to see the world through reality's eyes
But all I can see is nothing but lies
I never really found it hard to say goodbyes
Mostly because people are all undercover spies

Living in a world full of distrust
I do believe my heart is beginning to rust.
I enjoy my toast the most without its crust.
Watching myself fall into the dust.

Now I am trying hard to restrain
I ask you please not to parade in my rain
Feels like a train running into my brain
Hurts the most when you can't feel no pain.

Well one day I was taking a friendly stroll
When lo and behold I came across a troll
He told me if I wanted to pass I had to pay a toll
I said I'm sorry but I've lost all control.
