~Big Top~

Burlesque Blitz Bizarre!

Welcome here, fun is mixed with fear
Beyond black curtains, wondrous and the weird
Know the unknown, hear the clattering bones
See the unseen sights yet to be hear shown
Creepy crawly, we’re quite naughty
Hiding things within this tent
Frozen smiles, seen for miles
Piercing eyes of ill intent
Beneath the graves, and beyond the hills
Dance the once dead creatures which can’t lie still
Broken dolls silently laugh
As mindless cracked clowns turn all your smiles to frowns

Cirque Noir, Cirque Noir, oh…
Cirque Noir, Cirque Noir, oh…
Ohhhh…

Downward descend spiraling stairs
Where within shadowed minds, glaring one eye stares
Mesmerized, let thy earthly eyes
Wither, shiver and die with their tears and lies
Puppets dancing, night entrancing
White hands pulling their own strings
Dolls are singing, ears are ringing
Shadows causing eyes to cringe
Porcelain white, living eyes inside
Seeing past the light, darkness brings true sight
See the cracks in the pretty doll’s face
Gazing past the shell, silent dark embrace

Cirque Noir, Cirque Noir, oh…
Ohhhh…
NOIR! NOIR! NOIR!

Windows painted all black, mirrors unmasked
Walk beyond within, ending begin
Burlesque Blitz Bizarre…CIRQUE NOIR!
