Verse: (Guitar 1 plays chords, Guitar 2 plays fills)

C#m7
high on a wire
Asus2                      *(w/ fill 1)
poised for an imminent fall
clowns always smile                *(w/ fill 2)
greasepaint and lust in their pores
                    *(w/ fill 3)
start to sway and i hold your hand
fall, the smile surrounds his head

                                              omitted second time)
Dsus2                             C
to lean, to err, to far along for me

Dsus2                             C
to wait around, to smile is to accept

Em (both guitars play an Em chord for one measure before the verse)

Verse: (same as first)
In center ring
rolling in sawdust and hay
covered in paint
damn everything but the circus
damn the men and the women who stare
at the freaks in the cages and snares

Prechorus: (same as first)
hot ashes, clay
hot ashes fade

Chorus:
to win, to err, to fall to far for safety
to lean, to wait a while is too easy
