Didn't walk, could've run
Ain't that enough?
Feel alive out on a limb
The same way as up
I wanna be where we as people should be
I wanna see what's not shown

Could've won, should've lost
And laid down in sun
Change of mind, change of line
Under my tongue
I wanna go where we as people should go
I wanna know what goes on

In this three ring circus going round
This three ring circus going round
In this three ring circus going round
This three ring circus going round

I wanna be where we as people should be
I wanna see what's not shown

Make it home

In this three ring circus going round
This three ring circus going round
In this three ring circus going round
This three ring circus going round

    General CommentLove this, after owning the album for a while I realised this was up there with the best of them, underrated. Just listen to that powerful chorus, pure escapism!

    It's telling you that even though yer team might not have won today, and that it all feels the same, and yer head drops down, theres still rock n roll, and wouldn't it be great if the place so brilliantly portrayed in this song existed?

    This is not the extent of our culture, or it shouldn't be anyway.

    Like when Noel sang about slipping inside the eye of your mind...
