Lyrics


Come see the greatest show as advertised on radio
Sell your soul to come join in the circus
The anthem plays you stand beneath candy coated command
Here, hide behind this smiling paint – that’s perfect
For the real world – what’s so real about
In the real world – don your circus habit
It’s the greatest show on earth and in heaven
From the time of birth they taught you to believe
and do and say and act to fulfill their desires
And now we’re all screwed up
An overflowing alcoholic loving cup
drink it up – jump through the ring of fire
In the real world – what’s so real about it
In the real world – don your circus habit
It’s the greatest show on earth and in heaven
Locked inside the lions cage for your entertainment
Death defying fits of rage for your entertainment
The performance of your life for your entertainment
In the greatest show on earth and if I sell me short
Then I’m just another severed cord
Catatonically deaf, dumb, and simple
In the real world – what’s so real about it
In the real world – don your circus habit
It’s the greatest show on earth
