Circus Life

This circus life is something less perpendicular. Something in this is desperate. Something in this is unjustified. I get the joy of rediscovering the lost property of my soul.

This circus life.

I hear there’s a light out there, but they don’t tell me how to get to it. Something in this is desperate, but they don’t tell me how to find it. Take control over all the little parades of the living dead, that you have made of my mind. It is a lifetime guarantee under this moon.

This circus life.

They tell me life can be straightforward, but everything is up in the air. I get the joy of rediscovering it. Something in this is unjustified.

This circus life.
