You stare down at the crowd
from your trapeze
And when you fell
they fell down on their knees
And when you broke
they scrambled for a piece
And when you spoke
I felt their anger freeze

Back in Metropolis
circuses & elephants
where the oranges grew
Back in Metropolis
nothing can ever topple us
when I’m standing with you
Back in Metropolis
talk about a holocaust
And then visit the zoo
Back in Metropolis
the weather is ridiculous
What’s it all leading to?
