lyrics

Harlequinade - clown cavalcade. The joker, the fool - that's me and you. Yeah, we're all throwing pies, telling lies - we're all Bozos. We masquerade - fools on parade. The mirror and you - laughing at each other's truths. Yeah, we're all juggling balls, taking falls - we're all Bozos. We're all Pogos. We're all slapping on the facepaint, hiding bodies in the basement and killing with a smile. We're all biting tongues to suck them in, bleeding from a lipstick grin - and we laugh in the mirror as the joke becomes clearer: a little glam, a little flim-flam and we're somebody else in this carnival of carnivores, juggling chainsaws for sport - harlequinade. Savage charade - all marks are made. Prince in a can - a joker found in every hand. Yeah, we're all falling down, breaking crowns - we're all Pogos. We're all Pierrots. We're all slapping on the facepaint, hiding bodies in the basement and killing with a smile. We're all biting tongues to suck them in, bleeding from a lipstick grin - and we turn from the mirror as the truth becomes clearer: some silly clothes, a wig, a red nose, and we're dressed as ourselves in this carnival of carnivores, juggling chainsaws for sport. Even a fool well knows how this game goes: we're naked all and shown bare to the bone... APPLAUSE! APPLAUSE! APPLAUSE! APPLAUSE! (M. Davis)
