You come around to the autumn carnival
It's glowing like a jack-o-lantern on the hill
You should be younger now than you were then
Trading silver for a thrill
You come around to the autumn carnival

There is a fog in the hall of mirrors
The ghost of a tree line has jumped the track
Like a carousel which is turning back
Create all of the things that you lack
And you can go there if you need
And you can surely fix you guaranteed

Ferris wheel unshadows and shatters
Across the ground into the eyes of the innocent
The carnie spits at the waxing moon
And all that hell that was gone too soon
And you can go there if you need
And it will surely fix you guaranteed

Here comes the rain so you move inside
There is no compass, there is no guide
And there is no mask behind which to hide
You come around to the autumn carnival
You come around to the autumn carnival

And you can take it with you if you need
Cause it will surely fix you guaranteed

You come around to the autumn carnival

    General CommentIt's about feeling younger again, forgetting your monthly mortgage, insurance, companystore like living. Spending the worthless money for some fun.
    The advice is to do more so and live a happier live.
