Went down to the freak show Watched the getaway cars role away It's where I saw you dancing with a ghost Down at the peep show Their selling off the snake oil for free air Don't ever let me hear you say " I don't wanna live that way" Well this lonely carousel was spinning and the wind was blowing wild the alkaline dripped out of time so i went looking for some tears in her ocean but her ocean just drowned out the cries It's like the deaf leading the blind No I don't wanna buy night visions of hiroshima lights Like the dream most every night where I wake up screaming yeah i was looking at you through me Went down to the freak Watched the getaway cars role away It's where I saw you dancing with a ghost Down at the peep show Their selling off the snake oil for free air Don't ever let me hear you say " I don't wanna live that way" Go wishing it away again Yeah down through the snake trails and the brass reeds sunken noise and shake hands with the middle man while he raises his right hand And the welcome signs to the ghost town you went looking at them upside down to see what midas found while the red light side of the moon was rising above your stolen crown Went down to the freak show Watched the getaway cars role away It's where I saw you dancing with a ghost Down at the peep show Their selling off the snake oil for free air Don't ever let me hear you say " I don't wanna live that way"

Dearest JJ Miller I want to tell you a true story A song you sing along dirt roads a song of love in the morning A voodoo breeze through the willow trees shes nowhere to be found She up'd and left down the gravel road of this stonequarry town Without A Sigh Without A Sound A cactus collecting crown juggles spikes on her steeple thrown he's got a rattle snake inside an old squeeze box 6 months good behaviour bond Well god only knows what he's done as they disappear into the crowd Like a mariachi band lost at sea Their gone Without A Sigh Without A Sound Sell your soul while you still can This demented voice sounds familiar It echoes through the empty heads of all the mannequins, the empty bottles, the broken mirror So tell those see-through little girls and the evening news lobbyists the rivers and the floating limbs i can taste them in your noble kiss but i won't tell about the ghosts you see the night watchers of this town When the roster crows at the break of dawn yeah he crows with all the cross road guards that had left this place 10 million years ago now with all the night flying crowd right over mariachi bands that were bound but drowned Without A Sigh Without A Sound I heard you married a pretty Irish boy and you moved up to the palms Where the markets strong and it's safe and warm right there in your baby's arm Your so beautiful but i keep my ears close to your heart Those marchi bands I hear no more they drowned without a sigh without a sound

Touch the redline Lost the rhythm Hands off sercuity Shoot of skyline Smoking hand gun Tell me where it taking me Its been 20 years still all your shit ain't said and done I crossed this rushing river I crossed my heart and hoped to die There was a coup, release, a eulogy there was a who, a when in every dead end town i've lived I saw who stole the art of making love I was theirs Historizios tastes like No Doze There not immune to that kinda thing Get off the phone Joan Don't talk to me like that son where are your crystal ball and chain I've spend 20 years or more just trying to figure this out wearing warts and all award for those who can never stop There was a coup, release, a eulogy there was a who, a when in every dead end town i've lived I saw who stole the art of making love I was theirs

Periscopes for dead soul never reach both sides to the shelter The tides roll in and out of your dirty mouth, fresh sex, stench on a love that killed ya No ambulance, no silences, just dust clouds that are televised On your Stained Glass Eyes Gas ya pretty little mama Throw you cards on the table lets play one more time And there lining up outside rearview mirror assassin, terrified to drive Well i cant breathe in this dirty water, with out ya Without your Stained Glass eyes Which do I laugh or cry? Its insane the way we played the game I leave before you came Which flying North Bound "By the way" you pay to play the game Till it takes ya raspberry brain I ain't afraid to die But I'm afraid if I don't hear your broken china voice it guna kill me Which do I laugh I cry Rusted in the rain Your Stained Glass Eyes
