Look Right Through Me

Song quotes from Mad World ~ Gary Jules. I'll show you my clown mask...

"Sit and listen,
Sit and listen..."


That's all I'll do,
I'll sit here,
in this seat,
Listen to you drone on
and on.
No, I don't mind,
but when you ask me if
I'm okay, and I say
yes,
Can you ask again?
Maybe then I'll tell you
the truth.

"Look right through me,
Look right through me..."


I'll stand, present this to you,
tell you the basics of myself,
you won't ask for any more.
But if you did,
would I tell you more?
Maybe.
But for now, you'll know just the
surface, and that's okay,
I guess.
Just means you don't really
know me.
