Kicking time on filthy streets, no money left to spend
Still sickened by the night before my brain is on the mend
Way up ahead I see a crowd and flashing blue-red lights
I run to see the carnage of some hooker who's been nice

It's just a freak show!

Never know what's going on, just happy to exist
Drunk faces on the subway, cars who're riding in their piss
Oh, where's the space, a waste of time, a waste of energy
I'm locked inside the circus with a thousand casualties

It's just a freak show!

Sitting disco pumped and fueled with whores in skin-tight clothes
Some even have a hymen tucked inside their pantyhose
I love the lights, I love the fights and poverty grotesque
Come join me in my big time life and waste into this mess

It's just a freak show!
Ohohoh
It's just a freak show!
Ohohoh

As I stumble to the home I've carved out of this mess
I think about the foolish ones who dream of happiness
To tell the truth, I'm a happy man, and happier I'll be
When I awake to the freak show that is put in front of me

It's just a freak show!
Ohohoh
It's just a freak show!
Ohohoh
It's just a freak show!
Ohohoh
It's just a freak show!
Ohohoh
