Styles of Deadpan

Written

Tab

how many styles of deadpan does it take,
to get you through one tragi-comic day?
while all the cartoon villains smile along their merry way,
how many styles of deadpan does it take?

how often have you looked up to the sky,
scratched your head, and softly whispered “why?”
when all the cartoon villains keep repeating the same lies,
how often have you looked up to the sky?
+++and we know in our hearts
+++that it all falls apart in the end,
+++so our hearts are afraid,
+++and have nothing to say to our heads..

how much information is enough?
I thought I ought to know, but now I’m stuffed,
& I wish I could forget the things I can’t stop thinking of,
so how much information is enough?
+++‘cause we know in our hearts
+++that it all falls apart in the end,
+++so our hearts are afraid,
+++and have nothing to say to our heads..

how many shades of deadpan have you got?
to make it through these days it takes a lot,
I must admit, I find this script a bit over the top,
how many shades of deadpan have you got?
+++and we know in our hearts
+++that it all comes around in the end,
+++but our hearts can’t express it
+++in ways that make sense to our heads…
