PSYCHO CIRCUS


[Intro]

Yeeeeeaaaaaaah...
 
Hell-o.
Here I am. 
Here we are.
We are one...

I've been waiting for this night to come.
Get up,
Now it's time for me to take my place.
The make-up's running down my face.
We're exiled from the human race.

[Chorus]
You're in the Psy.....
You're in the Psycho Circus.
You're in the Psy.....
You're in the Psycho Circus and I say, "Welcome to the show".

I've been waiting here to be your guide.
So come...
And feel the secrets that you keep inside.
Jump up... 
No one leaves until the night is done.
The amplifier starts to hum.
The carnival has just begun.

[Chorus] 

Welcome to the show.
Welcome to the show.
Welcome to the show.
The show.

[Solo]

I,
I've been waiting here to be your guide.
So come,
Reveal the secrets you keep inside.
Come on.
No one leaves until the night is done.
The amplifier starts to hum.
The carnival has just begun.

You're in the Psy.....
You're in the Psycho Circus.
You're in the Psy.....
You're in the Psycho Circus.
You're in the Psy.....
You're in the Psycho Circus and I say, "Welcome to the show".
Welcome to the show.
Welcome to the show.
Welcome to the show.
And I say, "Welcome to the show".

WITHIN


[Backwards Intro]

Cry without tears.
See without sight.
Night without day.
And every day's black as the night.

Fly without wings.
Feel without touch.
Touch without feel.
And everywhere nothing is real.

I wanna see from within.
I wanna be where I've been.
I wanna the truth not a lie.
I wanna live... Before I die.

Life without death. 
World without end.
Sleep without dreams.
And nothing is quite what it seems.

I want something,
More than you'll know.
Follow myself,
And go where you can never go.
And I see though my eyes are closed.

[Chorus]
I wanna see from within. 
(Cry without tears)
I wanna be where I've been.
(See without sight)
I wanna truth not a lie.
(Night without day)
I wanna live... Before I die.
(And everywhere nothing is real)
(Touch without feel and everywhere nothing is real).

Inside you,
Without your blessing. 
Inside me,
Is me confessing. 
Outside you,
Is outside me.
And inside there is no guarantee.

[Solo]

I wanna see from within.
I wanna be where I've been. 
I wanna truth not a lie. 
I wanna live... Before I die.

[Chorus]
I wanna see from within.
(Life without death) 
I wanna be where I've been.
(World without end) 
I wanna truth not a lie.
(Sleep without dreams) 
I wanna live... Before I die.
(And nothing is quite what it seems)

I want something more than you'll know.
Follow myself and go where you can never go.

Cry without tears. 
Night without day.

I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE


Looking back, yeah I feel alright.
Getting more than my expectations.
Yeah, my future looks clear and bright.
I'm living up to my reputation.

Yeah.... I'm satisfied.
Yeah.... Until the day I die.

[Chorus]
I gave my blood and I gave my soul.
I stood my ground and I took control.
The legend's growing as the story's told.
I pledge allegiance to the state, 
Of rock and roll.
Oh yeah!

I've been a rebel for all my life. 
I never cared about regulations.
I only went for the things I liked. 
And my guitar was my inspiration.

Yeah.... We pay a price.
Yeah.... I made the sacrifice.

[Chorus]
I gave my blood and I gave my soul.
I stood my ground and I took control.
The legend's growing as the story's told.
I know that heaven's gonna wait.
I pledge allegiance to the state, 
Of rock and roll.

[Solo]

Yeah.... I'm satisfied.
Yeah.... Until the day I die.

I gave my blood and I gave my soul.
I stood my ground and I took control.
The legend's growing as the story's told.
I know that heaven's gonna wait.

I gave my blood and I gave my soul.
I stood my ground and I took control.
The legend's growing as the story's told.
I pledge allegiance to the state, 
I pledge allegiance to the state,
Of rock and roll, 
Rock and roll.

Rock and roll!

INTO THE VOID


I'm losing power, 
And I don't know why. 
Not really sure if I'll live or die. 
I wanna leave, 
But I can't get away.

It's a strange sensation.
Out of control being by myself.
I feel this gravitation.
Caught like a magnet and I'm being pulled.

[Chorus]
Into the void.
I wanna get away, get away.
Into the void.
I'm being pulled, I'm being pulled down.
Into the void.
This place is spinning, spinning around.
Into the void.
Feel like I'm being pulled into a black hole.

This crazy feeling's screwing with my head.
I'm overloading and my gauges are red. 
State of confusion's got ahold on me.

I feel a hesitation.
I'm being (?)drug, pulled out of the track(?) 
Don't like the situation.
Caught like a magnet and I'm being pulled.

[Chorus]
Into the void.
I wanna get away, get away.
Into the void.
My head is spinning, spinning around 'round.
Into the void.
This force is getting, gettin' stronger.
Into the void.
Feel like I'm being pulled into a black hole.
Into the void.

I'm being pulled, being pulled down down down down.
(Into the void.)

[Solo]

Into the void.
Don't like this feeling, I'm being pulled down.
Into the void.
I wanna get away, get away.
Into the void.
Feel like it's spinning, spinning around.
Into the void.
I'm being pulled, being pulled down down down down.
Into the void.
Get away, get away.
Into the void.
It's like I'm being pulled into a black hole.
Into the void.

WE ARE ONE


You are not alone, and how long can you run.
It's much to late, if you dont know what you've got 'til it's gone.
Once upon a time you were a child, but that was yesterday. 
Believed that magic in your heart would never fade away.

But hold your head up high,
And let your spirits fly.
Keep hope alive, yes deep inside,
And your dreams will never die.

[Chorus]
We are one.
Everywhere I go, everyone I see.
And I see my face looking back at me.
We are one.
Everything I know, what I know is true.
Everyone of us is inside of you.
We are one.
We are one.

(Oooh)

Take a breath, close your eyes you're on the road again. 
And then you realize they've brought you back to life again.
Something's never change, but if you fantasize.
You'll feel it deep inside yourself, and then you'll realize.

When you feel it coming.
When you hear the sound.
You'll always laugh when you wanna cry.
And then you'll know it deep inside.

[Chorus]
We are one.
Everywhere I go, everyone I see.
And I see my face looking back at me.
We are one.
Everything I know, what I know is true.
Everyone of us is inside of you.
We are one.
We are one.

You are me, I am you.
What you see, is all true.
(It's all true) 
You are me, I am you.
What you see, is all true.
(It's all true)
You are me, I am you.
(We are one) 
What you see, is all true.
(I am you) (We are one) (It's all true) 
You are me, I am you.
(We are one) 
What you see, is all true.
(We are one)

[Chorus]
We are one.
Everywhere I go, everyone I see.
And I see my face looking back at me.
We are one.
Everything I know, what I know is true.
Everyone of us is inside of you.
We are one.
We are one.

We are one.
Everywhere I go, everyone I see.
And I see my face looking back at me.
We are one.
Everything I know, what I know is true.
Everyone of us is inside of you.

YOU WANTED THE BEST...


(Yeah, Yeah, Yeah)
Make-up or break up, 'Cause we've seen better days.
(Yeah) They'll have to drag you kickin' and screamin' off the stage.
Listen, don't do me favors, don't show your face.
Don't tell me not to play,'cause it's not your place.

[Chorus]
The fans wanted us to play,
We hear and we obey.
You wanted the best,
(Yeah)
You got the best.

Don't give me glances, don't give me lies.
Don't give me sweet-talk, yhe beat just intensifies.
Hey, you live in fairy tales, you're just the fallen star.
(Right) Well, who died and made you king, just who do you think you are?

Everything's gotten way out of hand,
But your wish is our command.
You wanted the best, and
(Your wish is our command)
You got the best.
(Yeah, Yeah)

[Solo]

Everything's gotten way out of hand,
But your wish is our command.
You wanted the best, and
(We hear and obey)
You got the best.
(You got it, that's right)

You wanted the best, and
You got the best.

[Spoken Part]

RAISE YOUR GLASSES


I took a ride with a one-way ticket.
I aimed my arrow at the mark and hit it.
We all need to be somebody.

Been broken down, but not defeated.
I kept on punching back 'til I succeeded.
We all need to be somebody, now.

We stop at nothin',
Even climb barbed-wire.
We struck a match,
And set the World on fire.
And if we tried,
We couldn't get much higher, now.

[Chorus]
Everyone around the nation,
Raise your glasses,
Raise your glasses.
Standing proud, 'cause we're the champions,
Raise your glasses,
Raise your glasses.

We pushed it all.
Beyond the limit.
We took our chances,
And we jumped right in it.
We all need to be somebody.

Now I believe,
In strength in numbers.
Went into battle,
With a force of thunder.
We all need to be somebody, now.

I wanna shout it out with all my power.
I wanna scream it from the highest tower.
I wanna celebrate our finest hour, now.

[Chorus]
Everyone around the nation,
Raise your glasses,
Raise your glasses.
Standing proud, 'cause we're the champions,
Raise your glasses,
Raise your glasses.

[Bridge]
Oh, you gotta give it your all.
You've gotta know what you're after.
And oh, we'll make it over the wall together (Oooh).

[Solo]

[Outro]
I took a ride with a one-way ticket.
I shot my arrow at the mark and hit it.
When all the others only talked, I did it.
Kept pushing everything beyond the limit.
You play the game,
You gotta play to win it.
So, raise your glasses,
Raise your glasses.

[Chorus]
Everyone around the nation,
Raise your glasses,
Raise your glasses.
Standing proud, 'cause we're the champions,
Raise your glasses,
Raise your glasses.
Everyone around the nation,
Raise your glasses,
Raise your glasses.
Standing proud, 'cause we're the champions,
Raise your glasses,
Raise your glasses.
(C'mon)
Everyone around the nation,
Raise your glasses,
Raise your glasses.
Standing proud, 'cause we're the champions,
Raise your glasses,
Raise your glasses.

I FINALLY FOUND MY WAY TO YOU


So many people tried to help me on my way.
So little time, and there's still so much left to say.
There's no explaining all the things that I've been through.
But I've finally found my way.. to you.
I finally found my way to you.
(Ummm-mmm)

Now the day is ending and the night begins to fall.
Sometimes I wonder if I'll make it back at all.
I gave up everything I had and ever knew.
But I finally found my way.
I've finally found my way.
I've finally found my way to you.

Remember how we used to hide away.
We'd share the secrets of our souls.
Turn down the light and dance the night away.
We'd dance the night away.
We'd dance the night away.

[Instrumental Break]

Remember how we used to hide away.
We'd dance the night away.
We'd dance the night away.

And now I'll hold you like I never have before.
I'll let you go just long enough to lock that door.
The words I whisper come so late and overdue.
But I finally found my way,
I've finally found my way.
I've finally found my way... to you.
(Oooooh)

To you baby....

DREAMIN'


Close your eyes and take a look at your life.
Do you like what you see?
My eyes are open, but I feel like I'm blind, 
It's all returning to me.
I wanna know, does a frozen river flow?
Things we've said fill my head,
Lying in a cold and empty bed.

[Chorus]
I'm only dreaming.
Between the darkness and the light.
I'm only dreaming. (U-Ooooh)
Dreaming, can't tell the daylight from the night.
I'm only dreaming, dreaming.

I feel the sunlight shining down on my face.
Not a cloud in my mind.
I get my wake-up, but it never comes in time.
My prayers are spoken and I wait to receive.
'Cause there's a fine line between the truth and how we want it to be.

[Chorus]
I'm only dreaming.
Between the darkness and the light.
I'm only dreaming. (U-Ooooh)
Dreaming, can't tell the daylight from the night.
I'm only dreaming, dreaming.

[Break]
I'm sailing like a ship on the sea.
I don't care if I'm lost in the haze.
I hear the angels singing something to me.
Come dream of me, that you never see.
Won't you come slip away.

[Solo]

I am only dreaming.
I am only dreaming.
I'm only dreaming. 
(U-Ooooh)
I'm only dreaming.
I'm only dreaming. 
(Yeah!)
I'm only dreaming.
I'm only dreaming.
(U-Ooooh)
I'm only dreaming.
(Yeah!)
I'm only dreaming.

Dreaming.
I am only dreaming.

JOURNEY OF A THOUSAND YEARS


I know just where you come from.
Where all your yesterday's are gone...
And now you're done,
But you've only just begun.
It's time you opened up the door...
And now it's all very clear.
This journey of a thousand years.

Can you feel it coming?
Can you feel it now?
Can you feel it coming?
Or is it the roar of the crowd?
Can you feel it coming?
Cna you hear it?
Or is it the roar of the crowd?

Did you sleep without dreams?
Did you fly without wings?
Did you touch without feel?
Where nothing is real.
Did you feel it coming?
Did you hear it?
Or was it the roar of the crowd?

[Solo]
