Come join our circus where we all wear masks
Lying while our fans aren't expected to last
Could it be that the trick is on us?
Masquerading like we are the one

Can you blame us?
It started as fun
Didn't know that the game must be won
Sorry

Never did I lie, never did I need a trick y'all
But they told me this how to get rich y'all
Make a hit song, same lame lyrics, same bass, same kick drum
Buy the record you became a big, big victim
Bitch can't front, get what I want
Neck, hands and my wrist numb

Sick none, diamonds on my wristband
Who I'm talking to? You, you and my biggest fan
Thinking that ya girl got it all
And I got the best man, best hair, best legs
Need a break, you in my face
Asking K, what I'm putting out next year

Is it gonna be real freaky?
Critics wanna come critique me
Are you gonna be more grunge
Rock and roll like back when you dropped before

But get back, before I get ill
Black love, black mask
Listen to some real black love
That's all I have, that's all I have

Come join our circus where we all wear masks
Lying while our fans aren't expected to last
Could it be that the trick is on us?
Masquerading like we are the one

Can you blame us?
It started as fun
Didn't know that the game must be won
Sorry

Musicians, magicians, tightropes
Strobe lights, lion tamers, entertainers
Sold out nights
Dressing rooms, costumes, who's doing who? Gossip rumors
Groupies just too much, everybody's like let's do lunch'

That's why it doesn't matter
That's why I'm not a rapper
Still spit a few bars, might never hear this song
Label might say hell naw, get a new female star
She don't have to sing, she don't have to bring anything

Get her some new earrings, fly her off to Beijing
Book her shows in Wyoming, David Letterman and Conan
Your advance just a loan and doesn't it all sound grand?
Number one on Soundscan, just keep the clubs bouncing

Come join our circus where we all wear masks
Lying while our fans aren't expected to last
Could it be that the trick is on us?
Masquerading like we are the one

Can you blame us?
It started as fun
Didn't know that the game must be won
Sorry

How can I shake this circus clown?
What does the ringmaster need from his clown?
Should I dive through the circle of fire?
No, I'm just gonna be me

Come join our circus where we all wear masks
Lying while our fans aren't expected to last
Could it be that the trick is on us?
Masquerading like we are the one

Can you blame us?
It started as fun
Didn't know that the game must be won
Sorry

Can you blame us?
It started as fun
Didn't know that the game must be won
Sorry

Can you blame us?
It started as fun
Didn't know that the game must be won
Sorry
