"Circus" as written by and Howard Helm....
It's a circus
It's a circus in here
And I can't walk through my own life
Without stepping in the things I fear

It's a circus
Are you scared just like me
Everyone around me is talking
I'm just ripping off the leaves of the tree
So, I say

It's a circus
I'm scared of another choice
Everyone around me is talking
Am I the only one that has a choice

Is this truth
Or just some knowledge that I bare
Everyone around me is thinking
So help God, I'm scared

Oh no
Oh my God
Does anybody get a choice
Oh my God

Tell us the truth
Is this some truth
Some price to pay
Am I about to get the things I waged

If this is a choice
Oh God, it's a choice
Everybody has got a voice of some passionate conscience religion
Oh God, it's true

If this is the price I'll pay
I'm not afraid of the guns and tanks
To push it away
Is this a fashion, conscience, religion, or is it truth

    General CommentIt's a circus
    It's a circus in here
    and i cant walk where ever i want to
    I Keep stepping in the things I (fear/feel)

    It's a circus
    Are you scared just like me
    Everyone around me is talking
    I'm just ripping off the leaves of the tree
    So, I say

    it's a circus
    And I'm scared of (another/I don't have a) choice
    Everyone around me is talking
    Am i the only one who has a voice

    Well is this truth?
    Or just some knowledge that I bare
    Everyone around me is thinking
    Oh help God, I'm scared

    Oh no
    Oh my God
    Does anybody get a choice
    Oh my God

    Tell us the truth
    Is this some truth
    Some price to pay
    Am i about to get the things i waged?
    Is it true?

    If this is a choice
    Oh God, it's a choice
    Everybody has got a voice of some passionate conscience religion
    Oh God, it's true

    If this is the price I'll pay
    I'm not afraid of the guns it'll take
    To push it away
    Is this a fashion conscience religion, or is it truth?

    This is the price I pay
    I'm not afraid of the guns it'll take
    To push me away
    Is this a fashion conscience religion, I think it's true

    General CommentAmazing band. This is by far my favorite song of theirs.

    They have some new songs written, but I don't know if they have recorded any yet. They said at the Esperanza Plantation Christmas show that they will have a full length album out around April.

    General CommentLike people are saying, it's fashion-conscious religion. The line makes sense that way. It's taking a stab at organized religions that claim to provide the one universal truth but then change their priorities over time.

    General CommentAwesome song.
    I think fashion conscience religion points to the fact that we must look as if we are doing good and doing the right thing. We have to look good by going to church, we have to look nice at church, we should look like we're praying and we should look like we're paying attention.

    *shrug*

    Genius song man.
