Der Clown Tritt ab
The show is over, the clown steps back.
He made a fool of himself and he was laughed at.
He was just there, wasn't really one of them.
But he was important, as a scapegoat, as a lackey, as the one,
cover up the mistakes of others.
The show is over, the clown steps back, the crowd rages.
Applause, for the arts of the artist.
The clown is sitting lonelyin his corner, tired and exhausted,
once more he amused the crowd, once again others get the applause.
The show is over, the clown steps back,
for the very last time,
The show must go on, the show begins,
the clown enters the ring, a new clown
is laughed at.
