Colorblind James Experience – Fledgling Circus lyrics

Oh come on and fight my battles
Oh come on and plead my case
Oh come on do something to show me I'm not alone in this place
Fortune has not smiled upon me
Has not even bothered to learn my name
Should never have joined this fledgling circus
When it failed, they singled me for blame
One night I picked a fight with a strong man
I beat him within an inch of his life
He borrowed a rope from a tightrope walker
Went home and hung himself that night
Next it was the lion tamer
Lost his head in the lions jaws
They say that beast was extra hungry 'cause I last fed him three days before
An entire famous trapeze family, last week all plunged to their deaths
It was all so sad and unnecessary 'cause I forgot to mend the net

I got a date with the women with two heads
She's the only one left who'll talk to me
At dinner she makes good conversation
One head talks while the other one eats
Oh come on and fight my battles
Oh come on and plead my case
Oh come on do something to show me that I'm not alone in this place
