Spread the word around
The rat is leaving town
Message is a song
The misery is gone
Yes it is

Once I had a dream
To sing before the queen
She didn't want to know
She wouldn't see the show

What a fright
I couldn't do it right
Oh, what a night
What a night

Mystic demons fly
All above the sky
Memories of a clown
The saddest show in town, yeah

When I was seventeen
My mother said to me
Careful what you touch
Shouldn't touch too much

I blew my mind
She was so kind
I could have cried

In my mind I had to find
A kind of new way
Of being, oh, so cool
Like a blue blooded
Well studded English fool

Speak about the past
Times are changing fast
Once I was so weak
I couldn't even speak
Not a word

Shaking out a curse
Nothing could be worse
Walking through the door
Who could ask for more

Now I'm free
And I can see
That I am me
Yes I am me

Spread the word around
The rat is leaving town
Message is a song
The misery is gone

Shaking out a curse
Nothing could be worse
Walking through the door
Who could ask for more

Now I'm free
And I can see
That I am me
Yes I am me

Please stay away
