Lyrics
Verse 1:
big top, carnival lights, calliope sound
one big circus of life, send in the clowns
we're runnin around, foolin around
somebody needs to shut this place down

Verse 2:
if we could ride that ride just one more time
then maybe we'd find we'd be just fine
with a push and a whine, and a big fat lie
maybe we'll make it to the front of the line
- we lie to ourselves, it's such a good time
- but please don't tell, just wish us well

Chorus:
are we havin fun yet, gettin all we can get
ashes to ashes, yeah we all fall down
tryin not to feel while we're tryin to look real
ashes to ashes, yeah we all fall down

Verse 3:
now it's finally our turn will we crash and burn
or rise to the top, I hope we don't stop
we've worked so hard and we have the scars
all our broken homes should prove who we are
- we lie to ourselves, it's such a good time
- but please don't tell, just wish us well

Chorus:
are we havin fun yet, gettin all we can get
ashes to ashes, yeah we all fall down
are we all the same playin like all lives are game
ashes to ashes, yeah we all fall down

Bridge:
big big circus of life - we are the clowns

Verse 4:
when it's time to get off and take a look around
we survey the cost of where we are now
we've lost our hearts and we can be found
back at the start of this Merry-Go-Round

Chorus:
are we havin fun yet, gettin all we can get
ashes to ashes, yeah we all fall down
let's be realistic, we have gone ballistic
ashes to ashes, yeah we all fall down
