Lyrics[edit]

   i peek into the hole, i struggle for control
   the children love the show, but they fail to see the anguish in my eyes
   fail to see the anguish in my eyes
   i scratch around the brim, i let my mind give in
   the crowd begins to grin, but they seem to scream when darkness fills my eyes
   seem to scream when darkness fills my eyes, it's no surprise
   fail to see the tragic, turn it into magic
   my big top tricks will always make you happy, but we all know the hat is wearing me
   my bag is in the hat, it's filled with this and that
   my vision's getting fat, the rabbit's just a monkey in disguise
   stars and pills and needles dance before our eyes
   they will bite the hand if it is slower than the quickness of their scrutinizing eyes
   fail to see the tragic, turn it into magic
   my big top tricks will always make you happy, but we all know the hat is wearing me
   chicanery will always make you happy, but we all know the hat is wearing me
