MaryAnn's Circus
< ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------->
It started the night when I fell to pieces
I slept through the night and into the day
I opened eyes, God, give me the reasons
Or if I should die or if I should stay
So turn the page and show me a picture
That picture
Of a black-haired girl with a smile on her face
Heads down to her knees, backseat please
I comfortably freeze, freeze

Chorus:
Then I ran to MaryAnn
Falling far into her hands
I write to plan, MaryAnn
Shut the dark but it hit my face
My face, oh my face, oh

And I can give you all a thousand miles of anything
But here is the circus that I bought for you
I'll paint the ground so all the crowd
Will walk the other way
But I am the clown that simply laughs at you
Singing ah-ya-de-da-de-da-da
Ya-ah-ah-ah-ah-da-da
Ah-ya-de-da-de-da-da
Ya-ah-oh-oh
Ah-ya-de-da-de-da-da
Ya-ah-ah-ah-ah-da-da
Ah-ya-de-da-de-da-da
Ya-ah-oh
Oh yeah, woah, yeah, woah

So I emptied my heart and I laid it on your table, table
I gave you my soul on a paper plate
Then I went on my way with a rope and a cable
To hang who I love and choke who I hate
I laugh at the way you kick out depression, depression
Well I take several pills to keep me awake
My head's down to my knees
God, please, please, please and please
Please, please, yeah

Chorus:
Then I ran to MaryAnn
Falling far into her hands
I write to plan, MaryAnn
Shut the dark but it hit my face
My face, oh my face

Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
My face, yeah
I don't want to die
God, it hit my face
This is a Last Wish song that was only played live.  The recording is from a performance for the radio station KTRU.
