Brighter Day

This song is by Jellyfish and appears on the album Spilt Milk (1993).

strike the tent
unpop the paintbox
and pack the carriages
with the flesh freaks of fear
at the beach
we left them shell shocked
lining up the avenue
in view of next year

high steppin'
like a brigade
down the block
don't be shocked
to hear somebody say "wake up doomsday"
it's time to join the big parade
come and march in time with the band
playing loud fighting crowds
to see the matinee (it's tailor made)
because it's gonna be a brighter day

for the seeker of thrills
behind the ferris wheels
there's a man with one foot in the
grave and one foot on a
banana peel
he's an actor of sorts
who sold himself too short
so now he travels door to door
performing 'death of a salesman'
oh my country tears of thee
how the circus makes the world
safe for anarchy
in a cage with an uneasy chair
atop a merry go round
he wears that clown crown
can't you see that you can
come as you are
as you were
if you prefer you can change
(yes it can be arranged)
when you come and join the big parade
but you can leave your bagage
at home don't you pack
don't look back
then you can truly say
'goodbye highway'
that what then and this is nowadays

come on you big shot and enjoy
the rain
take a class in pumping blood into
those weathered veins
and i bet you'd still come out as
a teacher's pet

(ice cream and you cause it come to
being watertight scream but you'll
wrote that book you own the
copyright and clown costume
always be a plumber,
i saw it hanging in the closet of
your elbow room with a pipe dream)

if you've had it up to here with
what's real
i'm here to tell you that it's no big deal
because it's not too late
if you hurry up you can
come on and join the big charade
line up shut up clean up and shave
cause right behind you in the back
of the fray
is a blade he's a renegade
turning bullshit into marmalade
don't you know there's gonna be
a heavy price to pay
for pushing all these clouds away
it's bound to be a brighter day
it can't help but be a brighter day
