Circus

The monkeys are loose
throwing shit at the audience
For this show you better wear your hazmat suit
Watch out for the fire spitters
don't let the tumblers distract you
Freaks are lurking behind curtains
setting traps for easy prey
The pretty princess on the white horse is a shape shifter
Don't get too close...she'll bite your head off
Hungry beasts pace back and forth behind rusty cage bars
The clowns are sharpening their knifes
There's no business like show business
Innocence is blind
Ignorance is deadly
Don't buy the ticket
Don't take the ride
