lyrics

Up the street & down the alley,
past the houses
I found you calling out;
There were neon lights glowing above me
& people gathered round to raise their arms and voices going

"Oooooh
Ooooh"

I saw the message etched on the building:
We live in times we never thought we'd see
& all the while
That tick tape running,
I could swear he smiled and laughing at me
He was asking,

"Is there anybody left to trust
in this electric circus?
Has it taken what is best of us,
This electric circus?"

The words I said had lost their meaning
& what I saw was harder to believe
& the neon lights still glowed above me
Something's going on but we can't tell if it's
right or wrong.

"Is there anybody left to trust
in this electric circus?
Has it taken what is best of us,
This electric circus?"

I thought I knew you
I thought I knew you
I thought I knew you
I thought I knew you
I thought I knew you
I thought I knew you
