​The Laughing Crowd

This song is by Ron Sexsmith and appears on the album Grand Opera Lane (1991).

The laughing crowd, they will tell you how it is
If you smile you can't resist
Always dying to catch you crying
For they love to see you down on your knees without a single prayer

Don't want to know what they're saying
Don't want to see what they see
The laughing crowd will never be happy

The laughing crowd, they'll pay to see you sweat
Bet their lives you'll blow it all and yet
Never tell us, they'll only tell us
Of your shameless solitude, of your pride and of your dreams

The laughing crowd, they're always in the move
They go wherever the wind is scared to go
Until they find it, until they're blinded
The laughing crowd, they're always behind it

Don't want to know what they're saying
Don't want to see what they see
Don't want to know what they're saying
It's not for me
The laughing crowd will never be happy
