I see your face, in every place, that I'll be going I read your words, like black hungry birds, read every sowing Spin and call, throw the ball, my name is Carnival Sad music in the night, sings a stream of light, out of chorus Voices you might hear, appear and disappear in the forest Short and tall, come throw the ball, my name is Carnival Stings of yellow tears, drip from black wired fears in the meadow White halos spin, with an anger that is thin and turns to sorrow King of all, hear my call, it's Carnival Here there is no law, but the arcade's penny claw, hanging empty The painted laughing smile, the turning of the style, do not envy Where the small can steal the ball, touch the face of Carnival The fat woman frowns, at screaming frightened clowns that stand enchanted And the shadow lion waits, outside your iron gates with one wish granted Colors all, come throw the ball, my name is Carnival Without a thought or sigh, you come to hypnotise the danger In a world that comes apart, there is no single heart, and life is stranger Wheel and call, cloud dreams all, in the name of Carnival Yeah wheel and call, spin and call my name, oh it's CarnivalBack to Home Page
