New York Profit (sic)

By John Newman
The words of clowns
played back to front and upside down
the unthinking road to mystery
a golden bowl of prophecy
but don't you let it get you down
this time around

the mirror mirror it don't lie
won't hide the tremble in your eye
you brought the emptiness inside
sold out the other side

pleather coats and chinese boots
take the place of actual roots
hardened stares and easy sneers
the genius behind your fears
or maybe it's just crocodile tears
but don't you let it get you down
this time around

the people's people they don't lie
don't see the fear within your eye
you're emptiness inside
sold out both sides

your village voice
and battered Joyce
helped you make the better choice
a warehouse full of make believe
was never all that hard to leave
but don't you let it get you down
this time around
