    life in the circus ain't easy
    but the folks on the outside don't know
    the tent goes up and the tent comes down
    and all that they see is the show
    and the laides on the horses look so pretty
    and the lions are looking real mad
    and some of the clowns are happy
    and some of the clowns are sad

    but underneath
    there's another expression
    that the makeup isn't making
    life under the big top
    it's about freedom
    it's about faking
    there's an art to the laughter
    there's a science
    and there's alot of love
    and compliance

    welcome to the freakshow
    here we go...

    we live to hear the slack-jawed gasping
    we live under a halo of held breath
    and when the children raise up a giant shield
    of laughter, it's like they're fending of death
    oh and we can make something bigger
    than any of us alone
    and then the clowns will take of their makeup
    and the people will go home

    but life on the outside ain't easy
    no sequins, no elephants
    no parading around
    yeah, the circus comes
    and the circus goes
    and they're stuck in this fucking town

    you need alot of love and compliance

    welcome to the freakshow
    here we go...
