Queen Of The Night Part 1

Hey! It's your lucky day

Step this way, come and watch us play

What's that sound? Come from miles around

The Circus has come to town

 

So you've come to see the glamour of the greatest show of all

As we scrape our living down here in the dust

With your bellies full and empty heads, laughing as you go

Are you watching the freaks or just part of the show?

 

Hey! It's your lucky day

Step this way, come and watch us play

What's that sound? Come from miles around

The Circus has come to town

 

Consider if you will, the effort and the skill

This should be my finest hour, but the master has the power

The strong man is strong and the clown is a hoot

But we all jump to the tune of the ringmaster's boot

So you see me do my magic tricks, you cannot comprehend

Yet I sleep with the beasts and I'm kicked by the men

See them cheer him, so adoring and proud

But are the clowns in the ring, or sat in the crowd?

 

Hey! It's your lucky day

Step this way, come and watch us play

What's that sound? Come from miles around

The Circus has come to town

 

But have you seen the one? They call her Queen Of The Night

As she dances all alone, her body melting in the light

A man would die for just one kiss, but the master holds the key

Just like the wild beasts she is his, she'll never never be free

Behold! Come and feast your eyes

See what my queen has in store

And not a sound can be heard, she holds them all in her stare

The beasts obey her every word from this creature so rare

Behold! Come and feast your eyes

See what my queen has in store

Don't you want her? Want to hold her close

The queen of your night, forever more

But she's mine

She's mine

 

And when the curtain falls she waits all alone

Till he comes back in the small hours to make her all his own

She's the queen of his night, so sickening and obscene

While he stinks of drink and whores and hell, she can smell just where he's been

"King of the beasts!" he tells her as he beats her once again

And she knows that there's no fouler beast and she vows through her pain that one day ...

"One day. One day."
