Hypnotized by the fire inside

Swaying in the dark of the night

Crashing the course with the liberty bell

And the flashing neon lights

Reading the signs which you can’t explain

The ferryman has found

If you whistle the notes while you potion the spells

You will be pleasure bound

 

Circle the matter that you fear the most

Invite the unguarded scene

While we can’t see it, we can feel the ghost

Reflecting what we need

The solution signals the question’s end

While the infinite explains

Every time there’s a now and then

One direction still remains   

 

Welcome to the carnival show

Where the rules are fair

It's in your eyes

Where the truth does dare

   

And all the reasons

For loving you

The chance becomes the reason

For everything I do

 

And I do... it all… for you...

And I'll do... it all... for you... 

 

Flip the penny into the wishing well

Before you cross the stream

Hope the message can crack the bottle

Before the Gods redeem

I’ve been trained to ignore and sacrifice my desire

As the mask looks the other way

Once the contract is set for the date to expire

I no longer need to obey 

 

Lying awake as the energy fades

With a mad-like, state of mind

Riding the far-side of history

In this elapsed, state of time

Never say never, and never give up

The world still believes

That eternity lies with the fire inside

Akin to the apple tree

 

Welcome to the carnival show

Where the rules are fair

It's in your eyes

Where the truth does dare

 

And all the reasons

For loving you

The chance becomes the reason

For everything I do

 

And I do... it all… for you...

And I'll do... it all... for you... 

 

 

The trick to the shot can always be made

While we all address our sins

As we play the looped wheel of our memories

From the end, we begin

Whether or not the drummers will play

To the beat of the marching tune

Never mind the chance of the lover’s parade

As it appears each blue moon


Remember the lesson that scarred itself

Deep within your skin

Never forget and never give up,

Because we both know where we’ve been

Now get your ear low, low to the ground

And listen for the fire inside  

Given the chance atop the podium stand

Gives us reason to testify...  

 

Welcome to the carnival show

Where the rules are fair

It's in your eyes

Where the truth does dare

  

And all the reasons

For loving you

The chance becomes the reason

For everything I do

 

And I do... it all… for you...

And I'll do... it all... for you...
