THE UNUSUALS

Gather ‘round now, friends of old
You’re safe in the arms of Battered Souls
We understand. No need to explain
How to maneuver a derailed train.

We are The Unusuals
Not usual
Misusuable
Unuseable

Candy-coated shell
A magician without his spell
A man who swallows knives for fun
It’s so easy to dismiss
What we have done

We are The Unusuals
Not usual
Misusuable
Unuseable

And we can’t feel a thing
Sorrow without its sting
Our laughter is wearing thin
But we are proud to wear our painted grin

Lights down, enjoy the show
They’ll watch for an hour
And then they’ll go
But keep juggling wolves and playing with fire
For nothing will come from the uninspired

We are The Unusuals!
Not usual!
Misusuable!
Unuseable!
