my lyricsbox
I put on a fake smileAnd start the evening showThe
public is laughingI guess by now they knowSo climb
from your high horseAnd pull this freak show downDear
madam barnumI resign as clownYou said I was the master
of all I surveyedBut now I'm sweeping upThe last in
line in your circus paradeChildren are clappingAs I
fall to the floorMy heart torn and brokenAnd they just
scream for moreIf I'm not the sole foolWho pulls his
trousers downThen dear madam barnumI resign as clownYou
tread the high wireBetween truth and liesYour safety
net just walked outMuch to your surpriseStrike up the
band loveAnd let the show beginFor this is the last
timeI'm painting on a grinIf I'm not the sole foolWho
pulls his trousers downThen dear madam barnumI resign as clown
This song is from the album "Nonsuch".
