In the past the fools would pay,
To see the freaks of the day.
The contradictions of the norm,
The bizarre, the wonderful and deformed
No need for the tents
And the cages now,
The world comes to my eyes.
In front of my TV circus
a freak show in disguise.

Circles and roundabouts.
How much did you know?
Going round and coming back,
The world freak show.
Swings and revolutions.
How much did you know?
Going round an coming back,
The world freak show.

Another tree is coming down,
Another harpooned whale is drowned
Another child's belly needs feeding,
On land of the fast food chain is bleeding.
And we bought our new green wool
We pulled it over our eyes,
And the circus goes on
All around.
A freak show in disguise.

Circles and roundabouts.
How much did you know?
Going round and coming back,
The world freak show.
Swings and revolutions.
How much did you know?
Going round an coming back,
The world freak show.

Peristroika, reform, glasnot,
Hardcore sell, overhead cost.
News at ten, the house, Big Ben,
Half truth, now and then.
Pol Pot, border, massacre, slaughter,
Rainforest, the president's daughter.
Irradiate, evacuate,
Use, abuse, manipulate.
The people's will, their bellies full,
Multinational, kill, kill, kill.
Dead dictator, snipers retreat,
People claim the power seat.
Wall comes down, the people stand up,
Cross the border, customs shut,
Forklift, airlift, foreign aid,
Pockets lined, an army blockade.
Evolution, progress, regress,
Power, possesion, energy harness,
Economy, market, high or low.
How much did you know,
In the world freak show.
World freak show, world freak show?
