Welcome to the freak show!
Where the prices are high and the standards low
Everyone wears a mask or some kind of disguise
A pretty plastic shield to hide the fear in our eyes
Oh distorted mirrors on the wall
Who has the best facade of them all?
The mirrors reveal everything yet reveal nothing
Telling women they're broken dolls unless they have an apple core waist and breasts filled with stuffing
Telling men you are only as solid as your ego and as big as your dick
They're injecting us with hate and telling us we're not sick
Oh who will be the star of this freak show ball?
Who will be the one who fooled us all?
Everyone is a fake
Which mask will you take?
Which laugh will you wear?
I warn you they'll feel like a pair of old shoes worn beyond repair
Let the night take my soul
As I continue to play my role
Long before I was even born it was decided the world would turn this way
It was decided we would smokescreen the truth until it went away
We're all freaks and the world is a show
It's no secret, we already know
But the show must go on!
For we don't know how to do anything else, the truth is long gone
WARNING HAS THE WORD DIC* IN IT.
I'm not turning on mature content for one word, sorry. It's not even that bad.
