The show's in full swing,
So drop you're fucking things, stop spinning,
Nicotine stains on our brains,
It's all the same,

White trash machines,
Dirty fiends with silent screams,
Carnie fucking superstars,
We are what you are,

We're a freak show,
Where to go? We don't know,
Round and round and round we go!

Carousel,
Spinning 'til you go insane,
Carousel,
This world will melt your brain,
Carousel,

Decadent spirals
And multi-coloured labels
Everything's a blur,
Speeding up 'til it takes you under,

Apathy is everything,
But still I sing,
Welcome to the carousel,
It's a living hell,

We're a freak show,
Where to go? We don't know,
Round and round and round we go!

Carousel,
Spinning 'til you go insane,
Carousel,
This world will melt your brain,
Carousel,

Life is a carousel my dear,
It keeps us spinning,
People don't understand our world,
They want to change it,
Welcome to the freak show babe,
We'll never change you,

Endlessly spinning, it's a carousel,
Round and round and round you go,
Where you'll end you'll never know,
Round and round and round you go,
Where you'll end you'll never know,

Life is a carousel my dear,
It keeps us spinning,
People don't understand our world,
They want to change it,
Welcome to the freak show babe,
We'll never change you,

4 3 2 1,
Carousel.
