Welcome to the greatest show
Greatest show on earth
You've never seen before
Hear the fairytale unfold
What's behind the smoke and glass?
Painted faces, everybody wears a mask
Are you selling them your soul?
Well, you'll be left out in the cold
Is it all blue skies, fun and games until you fall
Then you're left without anyone at all
You're riding on a shooting star
With a smile upon your face but soon the shine fades
And you're left out all alone
Wondering where did they all go?
Ohh, been jaded, hated
Who'll be around when the limelight's faded?
Been shut down, pushed out
Made to smile when I wanted to frown
Always taking a bow, always working the crowd
Always breaking new ground, always playing the clown
Who'll be sticking it out? Who'll be staying around
When the lights go down?
