Carnival Knowledge

Carnival Knowledge
Music: Lyndon Heart
Lyrics: Lyndon Heart & Salome Strangelove

All my life the brass ring has been elusive
Still I can’t pull myself off the ride
‘Casuse I like the lights and the bright colored ponies
And I’m stayin’ on ’til they shut down the line

After all, it’s just carnival knowledge
It ain’t nothin’ but around and ’round
Tilt-a-whirlin’ out here on the midway
In mirror mazes I am lost and I’m found

I guess I’ve just come to terms with the freak show
Ticket stub thrills and sugar rush highs
Amusement prizes all mine for the winning
With soft swaying bodies and cupie doll eyes

After all, it’s just carnival knowledge
It ain’t nothin’ but around and ’round
Bumper-car-crashing out here on the midway
In calliope echos I am lost and I’m found

You must be this tall
One to a turn
The signs are only suggestions
Some of us hold on
Some of us burn

I suppose it all sounds a little seedy
Screamin’ out songs and bleedin’ guitar
But I don’t think I’ll ever trade it
I’ve seen the straight life and it’s just too bizarre

After all, it’s just carnival knowledge
It ain’t nothin’ but around and ’round
Ferris-whellin’ out here on the midway
In music and the madness I am lost and I’m found
