Battle Beast – Circus Of Doom

Circus Of Doom

The lions are hungry
And filled with rage
Afraid and angry
Locked in a cage
(Ah)
(The circus is coming to town)

Bright colours and string lights
Shining in the heights
The sound of an old music box
A spooky melody that never stops
(Ah)
(The circus is coming to town)

Ashes to ashes
And dust to dust
Bread and circuses to masses
Lust turning to disgust

In this circus of doom
Marionettes are dancing
Circus of doom
Time passes and fades away
Circus of doom
Shadows keep on laughing
Whiplash and scream
One more broken dream
In silence they fall
Tears of a clown

Acrobats are hanging
High in the air
Forever, never landing
Smiles upon despair
(Ah)
(The circus is in the town)

Trying to reach the dreams
Of some distant past
In this circus of extremes
Where nothing can last
(Ah)
(The circus is in the town)

Ashes to ashes
And dust to dust
Bread and circuses to masses
Lust turning to disgust

In this circus of doom
Marionettes are dancing
Circus of doom
Time passes and fades away
Circus of doom
Shadows keep on laughing
Whiplash and scream
One more broken dream
In silence they fall
Tears of a clown

What will remain
Of a life spent underground
An echo of pain
Fear that makes no sound
When the lights go down (When the lights go down)
When there's no one around (When there's no one around)
Wrapped in the absence of it all (Wrapped in the absence of it all)
Trapped in silence, they fall

The silence descends (The silence descends)
When the lights go down (When the lights go down)
Far from home and friends (Far from home and friends)
Something hit the ground (Something hit the ground)
Tears of a clown (My tears of a clown)
When there's no one around (When there's no one around)
(The circus has left)
(The circus has left)
(The circus has left)
Left the town
