lyrics

Going Out To Play
Words and music by Steven Grossman

It wasn’t my intent
It’s just a familiar inclination
to be mean
The malcontent
full of these inflammations
What a scene to be this spent
and prematurely bent
Going out to play

Perhaps it’s a device
Only a failed gesticulation
To be seen
a Fanny Brice
With manic complications
What a fumble, how inept
a secret better kept
Going out to play

When the core is too fragile
the anger too real
When the memories are too vivid
and there’s too much to feel
When the vision in the glass
gets haggard and muddy
I go within
and I call this old buddy

The idiot savant
the laughing Pagliacci
So obscenely bon vivant
assuring that you not see
the synapse that was skipped
the rainbowed makeup kit
Going out to play
Going out to play
Well it’s a stiff or busted lip
in the gladiator’s pit
Going out to play
