Carnival Of Fools

Album: Chaosmosis (2016)
  • [Verse 1]
    Terrible day when you walked out on me
    I didn't know what to say
    I didn't know who to be
    The words were gone, no emotion would come
    I was deaf, I was dumb
    I was blind all along

    [Chorus 1]
    "I just want to see you
    I don't want to leave you"
    Carnivals of fools!

    [Verse 2]
    We took a chance and we gambled with fate
    Tried on each other's skins
    We just couldn't wait
    The game was fixed, it was hexed from the start
    You were burning with light
    I was shot in the dark

    [Chorus 2]
    "All those stupid lovers
    Drowning with each other
    'Til they find another"
    At the carnivals of fools!

    [Bridge]
    We lose ourselves in another soul
    Hungry for the dreams they hold
    You set me free from the ghost in me
    You set me free
    You set me free

    [Verse 3]
    Now that you say it, I was obsessed with myself
    I was obsessed with myself
    I couldn't see no one else
    The sky was green and the buildings were blue
    There was a glow around you
    There always was around you

    [Chorus 3]
    "Vanity will blind you
    Trouble always find you
    Disaster's right behind you"
    At the carnivals of fools!
