Ghost Dancing

lyrics

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"
