music video: “smile for the camera man” (the fear of tears)

SMILE FOR THE CAMERA MAN (THE FEAR OF TEARS)

To a little child, a sudden change is a big surprise, so I left the stage

with crying eyes and a shaking face. If I need to weep, would you be afraid?

& say: “Stop crying, boy. Just be a man. If you can tie your shoes, then you should never be sad.

Plus, everyone can see and you don’t want that. Hey, I’ll buy you ice cream if you just smile for the camera man.”

Come join the club… of the paranoid. We hide our tears and say “I’m just annoyed.”

We get so mad at the slightest thing because we’re never sad… at least that you can see.

Any sad folks, oh we pity them- by which I mean, privately condemn.

And that old man who knows that we’re afraid, we just avoid him… cause he must be insane.

We say: “Stop crying, boy. Just be a man. If you can tie your shoes, then you should never be sad.

Plus, everyone can see and you don’t want that. Hey, I’ll buy you ice cream if you just smile for the camera man.”

No, I’m not afraid, and I’m never sad- maybe frustrated, surely not mad.

Because I’m good… and that would be bad, so shut your mouth or I’ll give you some’n to cry about

I ain’t afraid of you! Who do you think you are? You’d better agree… or I’m ‘onna tear you apart.

You’re arrogant and rude. You got an attitude. We’ll put you in your place quick if you don’t change your tune.

Oh, everyone should be grateful for their past. Stop being so negative- cause nobody likes that.

You don’t want to end up being alone- as everyone knows. Cause then you’ll calm down and find out

that it’s all just a bunch of popular baloney.

Sincerity… plus confusion doesn’t add up to anything useful

Humility with curiosity goes a long way… well at least for me

Be like a child- maybe even cry… unless you like the hell of the fear of fear itself.

To be in heaven, just stop condemning… all the things you used to find terrifying.

You’d say: “Stop crying, boy. Just be a man. If you can tie your shoes, then you should never be sad. Plus, everyone can see and you don’t want that. Hey, I’ll buy you ice cream if you just smile for the camera man.”

Stop crying, boy. Just be a man. If you can tie your shoes, then you should never be sad. Plus, everyone can see and you don’t want that. Hey, I’ll buy you ice cream if you just stop being so immature!”

Will you PLEASE just smile for the camera? Look, we really don’t have all day here….”
