"Long Slow Slide" lyrics

Long Slow Slide

Lights are bright in the circus
The geeks and the freaks
All light cigarettes
And laugh at your misery
While the white of the curtain
Closing crushes your heart
The inertia of loneliness
Tears your flesh apart

It's a long slow slide
It's a long slow slide
It's a long slow slide
Down

Once the neon is gone
There's still that golden splinter at your side
His manners are charming
But who are you fooling
You're still nobody's bride
And Bukowski's widow
Haunts each empty seat
On the ferris wheel
As ghoulish lovers collide
In a collage of kisses that they steal

It's a long slow slide
It's a long slow slide
It's a long slow slide
Down

And outside your window
The circus it's lurching
With rings of smoke
You laugh halfheartedly at the punchline
Not realizing they've made you the joke
And inside my heart a war is raging
A region still untamed
The worst fear I can imagine
Is for the mystery to be named
Is for the mystery to be named

It's a long slow slide
A long slow slide
It's a long slow slide
A long slow slide
It's a long slow slide
It's a long slow slide
Down
