What Do They Know About Love

In the circus of the mind,
the barker preaches while you wait in line.
The hawkers sneak up from behind
Bearded women selling valentines

They juggle fire all around.
Trapeze beauties high above the ground.
Tuxedoed monkeys riding bridled hounds,
dazzle ballers from across the town

What do they know about love?
What do they know about love?
They take it, but they can’t feel it anymore.

Why are you hanging around
with those creatures that always bring you down?
They’ll suck the marrow from your bones.
They’ll grind you up and make jelly of your soul.

Pushing their way through the crowd.
Running from the losers that they steered their way around.
They’ll fuck the stars when they get to them.
They’ll make them bleed and claim them as their friend.

What do they know about love?
What do they know about love?
They take it, but they can’t feel it anymore.
