Jon Astley - Welcome to the Circus



All camped out on a sea of mud
But there's not enough sawdust
To dry up the blood
The man on the wire is going for broke
No one's allowed any slack on the rope

Welcome to the circus
A congregation of fakes
Where all hope are dashed
With the greatest of ease
This daring young man is down on his knees

Welcome to the circus
A collection of mistakes
When the vanishing man does not reapper
Am I the only illusionist around here
Disillusioned by the circus

I may act the clown
But I'm nobody's fool
The strongman is busy
Bending the rules

Welcome to the circus
An exhibition of freaks
I dare not look down
But I'm willing to bet
That while I'm up here, there is no safety net
Welcome to the circus
A gathering of geeks
When the vanishing man does not reapper
Am I the only illusionist around here
Disillusioned by the circus

Disillusioned by the circus
Disillusioned by the circus
