Track Name: The Midnight Circus
Trapeze aint’ easy, the interviewer says looking up from a page
You’ve got an essay of a resume, even worked for the cirque du soleil
Spent time in vegas, flawless ten shows a week
We’re all very impressed, but the midnight circus is not for the weak
Jonathan replies, with a sparkle in his eye, that clearly he’s ready for anything
He’s been sleeping eyes wide, with a chest full of pride since the opportunity came knocking
No, I won’t let you down sir, test me I will not fail
The interviewer smirks, and with one thumbs up, sends Jonathan to acrobat hell
Dusk till dawn, and the days were long, not a moment to stop and reminisce
He’d Tape up a gash, or walk on a fracture, not a second was missed
The blood in his mouth, yeah he tasted it, every second he wanted to quit
But when he tried to think of a higher peak, the answer was always “this is it”
So he closed his eyes, and he prayed to himself
I know this springboard feels like a bed of nails, but it’s something we can’t be without
And now they’ve whittled a whole crowd down, to just two, but who’s the one more astonishing
Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce to you for the first time, “The Amazing Jonathan!”

And anything could happen to you now
When you risk it all
and you take the fall
so when the curtain calls you go and take a bow
Then you risk it all
and you take the fall


And Johnny boy could not be beat, the bigtop act was easy street
He somersaults defying death, the seat’s-edge crowd still holds its breath
Hooping hollering house-lights dim, whispering wondering, eyes on Him!
Nothing could stop this living blur except for the night that he saw her
Dancing in the center ring and fanning flames she had that thing:
That elegant swaying poise, murdering men, destroying boys
Moxie was her moniker, he knew that none were lovelier
when he tried to think of a higher peak, the answer was always “it’s her”
The one he loved, the myth he couldn’t believe was true
She had the voice of an angel, the sound he hoped to grow old to
And when she moved her hips, he could only think one thing
If she’s to be my darling queen, I’ve got to be the king
They fell in love, it was destined to be
He’s the best in the air, she’s the best on her feet
Through years their love grew, and it never failed
As they tried to raise a family through diminishing ticket sales
And anything could happen to you now
When you risk it all
and you take the fall
so when the curtain calls you go and take a bow
Then you risk it all
and you take the fall


I can see him now, gray is his hair as he stares at the crowd
He’s practiced his bow, but that’s only gonna happen If he doesn’t kick the bucket on the long trip down.
Named king but he wears no crown, hoping the locals don't figure him out
growing older now, but he’s still gotta man up cause he’s gotta keep the mortgage down.
His kid's in the front row, grandkid on the lap
There’s a tiny little landing pad, and a jetpack strapped to his back
she’s backstage stretching, growing old, but still warming up
and Moxie get’s the money from the policy her husband has recently upped
Ringmaster gives the cue to king, along with a subtle nod and a wink
Acrobats who are strapped for cash don’t got a lotta time to think
Blow one last kiss, throw one last wave
Make one last wish that you don't change your mind when you open your eyes half way.
Wind blows past Kings face, as it would on a regular day
There's an x marked on the ground, but the king lands around a kingdom away.
Initial disbelief, followed up by a guttural scream
Ripcord pulled, and the curtain falls, and a scramble to handle the morbid scene


And anything could happen to you now
When you risk it all
and you take the fall
So when the curtain called you went and took a bow
then you risked it all
and you took the fall
Track Name: Risk
Cut your brake lines and go to jail?
More like fake a mistake and make the rotors fail.
Because Some Poor fucker's gonna get impaled
when the conductor fucks up and gets his train's derailed.

But It's not his fault that the track came loose,
and introduced the dirt to the Caboose's roof.
I was aloof while lookin at the blueprint proof
‘cause the solution was a little too abstruse.

Just kidding. My mind is mainly amazing,
A mind designed for making people playthings.
Escaping into aes rocks view of world peace.
Kill every motherfucker but me.

A mind can be pushed till it fails to heal
And warps like beam of yielded steel
Twisted metal in a mental mind
A dangerous genius tryna pass the time

A reckless motherfucker with a deformed brain
Trained to suppress all this emotional pain
Just put those feelings in a bottle or two
And keep being perfect for the people that ignore you

This gig has got me depressed
In fact no-one cares if you’re the best
It’s only when you fail that you’re getting some press
And then you’re the one forced to clean up the mess
