KING CRIMSON lyrics : "Cirkus"

(Fripp/Sinfield)
Night: her sable dome scattered with diamonds,
Fused my dust from a light year,

Squeezed me to her breast, sowed me with carbon,
Strung my warp across time
Gave me each a horse, sunrise and graveyard,

Told me only I was her;
Bid me face the east closed me in questions
Built the sky for my dawn...


Cleaned my feet of mud, followed the empty
Zebra ride to the Cirkus,

Past a painted cage, spoke to the paybox
Glove which wrote on my tongue-
Pushed me down a slide to the arena,

Megaphonium fanfare.
In his cloak of words strode the ringmaster
Bid me join the parade...


"Worship!" cried the clown, "I am a T.I.
Making bandsmen go clockwork,

See the slinky seal Cirkus policeman;
Bareback ladies have fish."
Strongmen by his feet, plate-spinning statesman,

Acrobatically juggling-
Bids his tamers go quiet the tumblers
Lest the mirror stop turning...


Elephants forgot, force-fed on stale chalk,
Ate the floors of their cages.

Strongmen lost their hair, paybox collapsed and
Lions sharpened their teeth.
Gloves raced round the ring, stallions stampeded

Pandemonium seesaw...
I ran for the door, ringmasters shouted,
"All the fun of the Cirkus!"
