(CP1)
Mystic demons fly
All about the sk
With memories of a clown
The saddest show in town
(CP1)
When I was seventeen
Me mother said to me
Be careful what you touch
You shouldn't take so much
(CP2)
I blew my mind
She was so kind
I could have cried

(Solo)
(CP1)
Speak about the past
Times are changing fast
Once I was so weak
I couldn't even speak
(CP1)
Shaking put a curse
Nothing could be worse
Walking through the door
Who could ask for more
(CP2)
Now I'm free
And I can see
That I am me
(CP1)
Spread the word around
The rat is leaving town
The message is a song
The misery is gone
(CP1)
Shaking out a curse
Nothing could be worse
Walking through the door
Who could ask for more
(CP2)
Now I'm free
And I can see
That I am me
Please stay away
