Our circus closed
And the midnight ghost
Coming out as lights go down

Old and tired clown
No one is around
Staring at the mirror

Listen on
The show must go on
Lived in the crowd but dyin' all alone

Clown in the mirror — glitter and scars
Here's pleasure and pain look as one
Clown in the mirror — touchin' the stars
He's flyin' his dream to the sun

What a mask can say?
Cry the night away
Askin' mirror — tell me how long?

Wrigglin' all those years
Through the laughter's tears
Don't believe in hearts of stone

Listen on
The show must go on
Lived in the crowd but dyin' all alone

Clown in the mirror — glitter and scars
Here's pleasure and pain look as one
Clown in the mirror — touchin' the stars
He's flyin' his dream to the sun

But the sun will rise
Evil took the prize
Something will remind you

Sign of disgrace
This paint on your face

O
The show must go on
Lived in the crowd but dyin' all alone

Clown in the mirror — glitter and scars
Here's pleasure and pain look as one, as one
Clown in the mirror — touchin' the stars
He's flyin' his dream to the sun
