You stood beside a burning bush
And let the trumpetmen catch fire
You squeezed a flood out of a stone
And all the people drank it dry
So all the ships returned to land
The birds could swim
The fish could fly
The angels couldn't understand
How everyone could get it right
Circus composer, you let us get closer
You stood below a tangerine
And let the fruit roll melt away
And all the world was you
And we thought it were better anyway
Circus composer, could you write this all down?
You let us get closer,
You let us be found
Circus composer, could you make me a star?
If I tied myself to the wrecking ball

    General CommentClearly, some religious reference. As in a lot of their songs.

    I love Page France.

    General Commentthis really just seems trippy to me.

    i'm not catching the religious reference...
    except maybe 'circus composer, you let us get closer, you let us be found.'

    General Comment... does he really sing "fruit roll" ???

    because.. it doesn't make sense,
    and it also doesn't sound like that's what he's singing.

    General CommentI love this song.
    It paints a pretty good picture of God like a Circus Composer.
    He has a plan, a purpose, and a design. But just like a circus things can get pretty crazy.
