I'm up on the tightrope , one sides hate and one is hope It's a circus game with you and me. I'm up on the tightwire , linked by life and the funeral pyre But the tophat on my head is all you see. And the wire seems to be the only place for me A comedy of errors and I'm falling Like a rubber neck giraffe, you look into my past Well, baby you're just too blind to see. I'm up in the spotlight, oh does it feel right The altitude seems to really get to me. I'm up on the tightwire linked by life and the funeral pyre Putting on a show for you to see.
