When I was just A boy
Playing with my toys
Dad came to me said
Son you'll see you're not like other boys
Life it's what you make
It's what you take when your grown
Soon you'll see the sights that be
When you're far from home
First big lesson came from school
Learning all their rules
Program me so I could be
As blind as the other fools
Out of the cliques afraid of the chicks
Learning on my own
Can't wait to be free,
Soon they'll see I'm not like other drones
Finally I broke out and moved
To A comfortable sitcom
But the circus of pears demanded
Attention and said to mee
Be our spectical, be our silly clown
Join our mad parade, join our happy troupe
Be our song and dance, be our little puppet
Join our pretty show, join our pretty cast
This is your'e life and youv'e been decieved
Thought you were on your feet
But your'e really on your knees
The bodies in demand it's just what they need
Oils their gears and fuels their machines
Be our marionette, be our silly clown
Join our mad parade, join our happyy troupe
Be our song and dance, be our little puppet
Join our pretty show, join our pretty cast
This is your'e life and youv'e been decieved
Thought you were on your feet
But your'e really on your knees
Do you want their prize?
Will you belive their lies?
Will our join their game?
Do you fear the blame?
Make your choice now!
Will you call this circus home or will you go it alone
Dancing on A ball and jumping through hoops
Is what I trade for love
This is your'e life and youv'e been decieved
Thought you were on your feet
But your'e really on your knees
The bodies in demand it's just what they need
Oils their gears and fuels their machines
Why is there life?
What could the future hold for me
Too busy looking down for me to see
What does the circus hold for me
To busy being A clown so you'll look at me
What does this existence mean to me
Only at it's end will I be free
What would the freedom do to me
Afraid to open my eyes and look and see
