Welcome to the circus
Leave your brain outside
Sit back - relax
As we feed you lies

Spoon fed stimulation
Glittering fashion fascination
You are lost in the game
Media corruption

You'll be amused
By the things we do to you
But in the bitter end
The clown is you

End of the line
You sold your soul
For a better life
You are better off dead

You had one life
You had one shot
You blew it
And you knew it
The rot sets in
No self control
At the end of the line
You play the fool

    General CommentAh I really love this song and the back up vocals with Micheal Amott..but I'm not quite sure what the songs about. Obvious ignorant and easily convinced people.

    General Commenti think this song is about how the media is lying to us and we believe it. the media is taking advantage of us.

    General CommentI agree with bananaseller there, to me, once you get to a certain point of fame, the media will make up lies about you, as if becoming famous is selling your soul, its isnt your soul, its the media's, im still not too sure, still a great song, with amotts voice, tis great. solo is awesome too XD

    General CommentI think its about the general human obsession with fame and celebrities etc and how people are selling out to become rich or famous, selling their morals for a fake glamorous life
