I'm up on the tight wire
One side's ice and one is fire
It's a circus game
With you and me

I'm up on the tightrope
One side's hate and one is hope
But the top hat on my head
Is all you see

And the wire seems to be
The only place for me
A comedy of errors
And I'm falling

Like a rubber neck giraffe
You look into my past
Well, maybe you're just
Too blind to see

I'm up in the spotlight
Ohh, does it feel right?
Ohh, altitude
Seems to get to me

I'm up on the tight wire
Flanked by life and the funeral pyre
Putting on a show
For you to see

Like a rubber neck giraffe
You look into my past
Well, maybe you're just
Too blind to see

I'm up in the spotlight
Ohh, does it feel right?
Ohh, the altitude
Really gets to get to me

I'm up on the tight wire
Flanked by life and the funeral pyre
Putting on a show
For you to see
