Two tickets'll get you a tour of the fair
We've got a lot of ground to cover, keep up or get lost.
It's safe to say that you've got no idea what you're in for.
In time you'll see what we've done here.
Hey kid in the back with the backpack why don't you come up front?
Get up front. Just give it a rest now,
Just give it a rest now you wouldn't want to
Cause a scene un front of all these people

Stop before you lose your mind.
Are you freaking them out?
Are you speaking out loud?
All apologies - it seems that this disease
Demands the expertise of someone with a knack
For seeing through the wall of bullshit that I've built.
Would you take a look at the time?
The tour has barely just begun,
And yet we're falling behind!
I could've found my way out of the sideshow tent
By now without you slowing me down.
You're all so ugly inside and out.

Come one come all, come one come all!
This just might be the only audience we've ever had so...
Welcome to the death of love and war.
We've got the answers (keep up keep up)
We've been waiting for you or anyone at all

Let's start the tour, shall we?

Look at the animals play.
The sun goes down but nothing's changed.
They can't explain why we, as animals, would try to shape the world.
But as performers we won't stop until it's perfect,
And isn't that just the silliest fucking thing you've ever hear?
But there's nothing we can do about right?

Come one come all, come one come all!
This just might be the only audience we've ever had so...
Welcome to the death of love and war.
We've got the answers (keep up keep up)
We've been waiting for you or anyone at all

Shh... the aberrations seep... shall we wake them?
Ladies and gentlemen, your eyes do not deceive you.
They couldn't if they tried.
It's my pleasure to present the most bizarre of human animals,
The freaks, the worthless fucking...

Come one come all, come one come all!
This just might be the only audience we've ever had so...
Welcome to the death of love and war.
We've got the answers (keep up keep up)
We've been waiting for you or anyone at all

Come one come all, come one come all!
Well it's almost time to start the show,
So welcome to the end of what you know keep up, keep up (keep up keep up)
We've been waiting for anyone at all

Ah, lalalalalalalalalala

It's almost time to start the show.
So everybody out there, sit down and shut the fuck up

[Nonus the Hobo]
Pardon me, my boy.
A moment's all I ask of you - for now.
And if you'd offer up your minutes we'd return your change in hours.
Ours is quite a gripping tale of every ray your mind devours.
So take a look inside the flea circus.
Smile along with the fabrication as long as you can shelve your disbelief.
Breathe in each and every word from painted lips.
We know you'll keep these exaggerated features in your head
