lyrics

ON A WIRE
(e. fischer)

i'm dangling on a wire
trying to keep my cool
i'm trying to stay steady
deaf to ridicule
this must be some kind of circus
and i must be some kind of fool
to be stuck on top of nothing
my chin wet with drool

way down below the horses prance
raising clouds of dust
i hear the sound of a trumpet blast
announcing the next act
two dwarves in a gorilla suit run out
drawing a cart
on which sprawled in splendid disarray
sits a pope with a picture for a heart
try try try to disappear

he merrily snaps his fingers
the spotlight turns to red
it lights up all his jewels
draws halos around his head
then with a plump white finger
he beckons closer to his lips
and as solace to the starving
he whispers racing tips
try try try to disappear

the crowd is in a frenzy
they are crawling on their knees
the master of ceremonies is smiling
he delicately wipes away a tear
and i'm dangling on a wire
i beg to be let down
but my companions are doing brisk business
with amulets and crowns
try try try to disappear
