The Jester

I'm the one who casts that dark shadow deep inside of you,
when you think you got rid of me, I jump out of the blue.

My art of seduction is subtle, I'm just telling what's true,
you'll side with me simply 'cause you know now what to do.

If you want to be the king of the game -
just do it, grab the crown in my name.

I can make a mask, and your face will grow to fit it,
but once you join my game you're not allowed to quit it.

You can shine in all the power and the glory,
just leave that life of yours at my soul depository.


Well I wish today is the day I take your soul,
but geez! you're a trickster, you hid an ace in the hole.
You denied the crown, took the role of the jester instead,
running me down as a cartoon on your scribbling pad.

(Unused Verses)

When you're tested by your qualms, I whisper in your ears,
I make a pledge to everything you wanna hear.

I'm your gardener, you are my seeds,
just do it, string my prayer beads.

Head for the crown, try to be king,
just do it, allowed is everything.
