The ritual’s the same
Almost every night
You strap me to the board
And pull the blindfold tight
I know you’re there
So I know it’s gonna be all right
As I start to spin
I feel my heart ignite

I weigh the heavy blades
Before I let them fly
They find their mark like homing pigeons
Winging through the sky
And when we’re on the stage
You are the apple of my eye
My loveliest of lovely assistants
When I throw the knives

No one lives forever
In this spinning carnival
Most don't live at all
If we stay together
We can save us from ourselves
Or else we're bound to fall

I know sometimes the blades
Will gently brush your side
The audience will gasp
And their eyes go wide
Without this touch
I know I cannot survive
A kiss from me to you
When the air's electrified

Lying on my back
I look into the sky
Is that a shooting star
Or a lonely satellite
Or is the earth moving
Beneath the night
As it starts to spin
I feel my heart ignite

We both know the secret
There is no greater thrill
Than chasing a close call
If we stay together
We can keep each other safe
When we risk it all

As I start to spin
I feel my heart ignite
