There's a room for the trouble and there's lovers to be had
 Those ones that make sinners out of such lovely lads

This house is a circus, berserk as fuck
We tend to see that as a perk, though 
Look what it's done to your friends; their memories are pretend 
And the last thing they want is for the feeling to end
This house is a circus, berserk as fuck
We tend to see that as a perk, though 
Look what it's done to your friends; their memories are pretend 
And the last thing they want is for the feeling to end

There's a room for the trouble and there's lovers to be had
 Those ones that make sinners out of such lovely lads
 Scaling the corridors for maidens in the maze
And the anomaly is slipping into familiar ways
And we're forever unfulfilled
Can't think why
Like a search for murder clues
In dead man's eyes
 Forever unfulfilled
And can't think why
Like a search for murder clues
In dead man's eyes

The more you open your mouth 
The more you're forcing performance
All the attention is leading me to feel important (completely obnoxious)
Now that we're here, we may as well go too far

 Wriggling around just so that you won't forget 
There's certainly some venom in the looks that you collect  Aimlessly gazing at the faces in the queue  Struggling with the notion that it's life, not film

This house is a circus, berserk as fuck
We tend to see that as a perk, though 
Look what it's done to your friends; their memories are pretend 
And the last thing they want is for the feeling to end
This house is a circus, berserk as fuck
We tend to see that as a perk, though 
Look what it's done to your friends; their memories are pretend 
And the last thing they want is for the feeling to end
