Roman Candle

lyrics

the acrobat dove
he reached for the wooden handle
and he knew
the net was removed
the net was removed...

halt your laughter
he's no clown
and he's sure to fall down

hold your applause
oh the dancers
are an act you might like...

three painted rings
in the spot light,
under the ringleader's eyes...
to the children's delight!
a bloody zoo...
a bloody zoo...

roman candle
not a wick in some still wax
and off he flew
lookin comfortable with his decision
may i follow suite?
oh, i've never known what it's like
to take your life in exchange for living life
i've never known what it's like
like to fall down...
roman candle
not a wick in some still wax
may i follow suite?
i've never known what it's like to fall down.
