Welcome to the circus
Where you are put on display
Don't be so nervous
You really don't have a say
You've barely opened up your eyes
Had no chance to have a life
Replace the monkey in this rotating cage

Welcome to your new home
With all the animals and freaks
We brought the zoo home
And they've all got their own keys
Just pretend that they aren't in the room
Act the way you always do
It's never quiet so don't bother with sleep

And we will pick apart your mind as you are breaking down
We'll continue laughing, after all, you're just a silly clown
Pay attention to what you're saying, make sure it's entertaining
Lights, camera, welcome to your life

Welcome to the circus
The one and only parade
Where you can serve us
Our entertainment and pay
We're eating popcorn in the stands
Conductor's striking up the band
Curtain's opening, they're lighting the stage

Welcome to this most spectacular of festivities
Where we eat off the table while you eat off of our feet
As you will grow, we won't forget, no we'll be with you every step
Isn't it comforting to know we are here?

Oh, and we will pick apart your mind as you are breaking down
And we'll continue laughing, after all, you're just a silly clown
Pay attention to what you're saying, make sure it's entertaining
Lights, camera, welcome to your life

It's safe to say now that you're not just a face in the crowd
We got you in our magazines
Your world is our fantasy
Count your blessings now, child

When you're beneath the blade
We'll be right there waiting, waiting, waiting, waiting

On your every word, hanging on your every word
We're hanging on your every word, we're hanging on your every word
We're hanging for your every word, we're hanging for your every word
We're hanging for your every word

And we will pick apart your mind as you are breaking down
We'll continue laughing, after all, you're just a silly clown
Pay attention to what you're saying, make sure it's entertaining
Lights, camera, welcome to your
Lights, camera, welcome to your
Lights, camera, welcome to your life
