"Three Rings" as written by and Sally Oldfield....
I was out on the wire
Looking for the quickest way down
Swallowing fire
Playing the clown
The erectors came in
And before I knew they did it
They'd constructed the scene
The flying trapeze, the rings

I am, here I am
I am, here I am

The rings of my eyes fade
Lemon drops on my tongue
All the glory of the kings of the beasts crawl
As the perfume horse runs
Questions up to our citizens
You ask an arch at one please
Have you been educated? (where?)
Are you married, are you free? (answer me!)

Are you ready, are you ready for me? (I am, here I am)
I hear you, tell me everything! (I am, here I am)

mocking mortality with every move
The limelight tickles the wire
When and where indecision is fatal
Can I open my eyes? (ready?)
Have you ever pulled a trigger for your country?
Are you sedate are you wild? (answer me!)

I am ready, are you ready for me? (I am, here I am)
I hear you, so tell me everything! (I am, here I am)

Trouble with the world today
Freedom causes confusion
One reaction, too many questions
Leave the choices with me
That is, the world decayed
You said he's locked on computers
See a view through the keyhole too-too-too late
Where they make over years (answer me!)

(I am, here I am)
I hear you, tell me everything (I am, here I am)
Where the rings of my eyes fade (I am)
Where the rings of my eyes
Where the rings of my eyes fade (I am)
Where the rings of my eyes
