  • Welcome to the circus

    Welcome to the shit show
    Just another freak show
    Hang your hat and hate at the door
    It's a game of torture
    Souls are made to order
    Everything you wanted and more

    You've gotta kill somebody to thrill somebody
    Everybody's gotta reason to bleed
    You've gotta fuck somebody to know somebody
    That motherfucker ain't me

    Am I the only one
    That doesn't buy into the lies?
    Am I the only one
    That doesn't wear a disguise?
    'Cause if I can't break it
    And I can't change it
    Then tell me, how will I know? (Tell me, how will I?)
    Am I the only one
    That isn't just here for the show?
    Welcome to the circus

    Grab your favorite stones
    They came for broken bones
    That's what happens when you sign on the line
    There's no need for excuses
    Everybody loses
    Only way you'll ever win is to die

    You've gotta burn somebody to learn somebody
    Everybody's got a Jekyll and Hyde
    You gotta curse somebody to hurt somebody
    Everybody needs a reason to die

    Am I the only one
    That doesn't buy into the lies?
    Am I the only one
    That doesn't wear a disguise?
    'Cause if I can't break it
    And I can't change it
    Then tell me, how will I know? (Tell me, how will I?)
    Am I the only one
    That isn't just here for the show?
    Welcome to the circus

    You gotta hide your face
    (Sell them what they bought 'cha)
    (Teach them what they taught 'cha)
    You gotta hide your veins
    (This is how they gut 'cha)
    (Right before they cut ya)
    You gotta hide your pain
    (Ugly how they rule you)
    (That's just how they screw you)
    You gotta hide your rage
    (Everyone has earned this)
    (Welcome to the circus)

    Tickey, tickey, tasket
    Time to burn the casket
    Time to burn this motherfucker down

    Am I the only one
    That doesn't buy into the lies?
    Am I the only one
    That doesn't wear a disguise? (Doesn't wear a disguise)
    'Cause if I can't break it
    And I can't change it
    Then tell me, how will I know? (Tell me, how will I?)
    Am I the only one
    That isn't just here for the show? (Not just here for the)

    Am I
    Tell me, how will I know? (Tell me, how will I?)
    Am I the only one
    That isn't just here for the show?
