Freak Show
   ------The Cure

I can't believe it,
I must be dreaming,
she turns the sound down,
says “I am heaving,
this is a freak show”
and I am screaming...
She spins the world round,
I want to stop.

Bitter sweet again,
her opening move.
Down and out in black,
soft shiny and smooth.
Looks like the alien crowd got groove.
She burns her name into my arm,
but I can never get through

to play the game,
she's trying to lose.
Her ultraviolet
makes it harder to choose.
Looks like the edge of the the Earth got moved.
She blurs away across the floor,
I spin to swallow the view.

And it's the same sway,
yeah it's the same slide,
it's the same stare,
oh it's the same smile.
Yeah it's the same but...
It's not quite right

Oh it's insane,
she shakes like a freak.
Stuck in the middle of the room
for a week.
Looks like the only way to get on the beat,
is take her up on how to swing,
but I am missing my feet.

And it's the same sway,
yeah it's the same slide,
it's the same swish,
oh it's the same smile.
Yeah it's the same but...
It's not quite right

I'm in a step
...Out!
She's two more steps
...Down!
For three steps up
...Clap!
And go around
...Ow!
It makes my head buzz,
she wants to come now,
I want to stop.

Always infradig,
her finishing move.
Up and down in black,
soft shiny and smooth.
Looks like the alien crowd got groove.
She cuts a number out my arm,
but I can never get through

to play this game,
she's trying to lose.
The stuff from Mars
makes it harder to choose.
Looks like the final frontier got moved.
She blurs away across the floor,
I spin to swallow the view.

And it's the same sway,
yeah it's the same slide,
it's the same strip,
oh it's the same smile.
Yeah it's the same but...
It's not quite right...

I can't believe it,
I must be dreaming,
she turns the lights up,
says she is leaving.
This is a freak show,
and I am beaten...
She spins the world round,
I have to stop.
