I had some fun with the wildest of friends
They took me to the park and they threw me away
In the fens
I wandered all night my hand held like a gun
I wandered ‘til I found the light from the city of fun

And this don’t know mind I give
To this horrid pilgrimage
We go marching by twos
And our horses run loose
And we can’t go back
That’s a natural fact
I see the silver faces
Following us in the sky

The townspeople gathered around the square
To see the tightrope-walker fight
The bear
I am the bear with the dullest of claws
Made to fight this life on a rope of meaningless laws

And this don’t know mind I give
To this life’s pilgrimage
We go marching by twos
And our horses run loose
And we can’t go back
That’s a natural fact
I see the silver faces
Following us in the sky

    General CommentHonestly, something about this song is very disturbing. Maybe it's bitter irony in the first verse, but it evokes an image of a woman who has been gang raped and left for dead in a park. I just don't know...Still, I love her music.
