Rodeo Clowns Lyrics

sweeping the floors, open up the doors
yeah turn on the lights, gettin ready for tonight
nobody's romancing cuz it's too early for dancin
but here comes the music

bright lights flashing to cover up your lack of so
many people, so many...

    I’m probably over-thinking but to me it Sounds like a description of the an outside observer, watching the “herd”- everyone seeking meaning in their life by partying, when no happiness can really be found there. what looks on the outside like a fun time is often someone desperate for affection, or to drown out their pain. “Romancing” is reduced to hookups in dance clubs. The revelers simply become part of the “herd” and it is kind of sad. Nice to hear a song with some social commentary and depth rather than just superficiality.

    It's basically just described a big-ass party! that's what I think.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway
