Time loves a hero everybody hopes it's a mirror image did you get the news from across the river?
Someone say a prayer for the prince of fools what's it gonna mean in the final hour what's it gonna be when the bell ringers' tower comes tumbling down
Never a moment of kindness only the laughter only the anger under the big top it's a beggar's world but it's real the holy sidewalks are now the highways that home to the sinners and thieves
Beware the eyes of the beholder watch out! watch out! look over your shoulder!
Living like a story of a gypsy princess looking like an angel in rest learning we will try to resist it can't be done Someone put the chains on the dancer like a way break a spirit hey how a shame in salvation the wages of sin woe to the unholy message watch out! ye children of Egypt inside the palace it's the dealer's game you got to play there is no justice only hangmen who patiently wait beware the eyes of the beholder watch out! watch out! look over your shoulder!
