                        Carnival    by       Natalie Merchant     from "Tigerlily"
F#m                                                      E
Well I've  walked these, streets a virtual stage it seemed to me
D                                                                                F#m
make-up on their face actors took their place next to me.
F#m                                              E
Well I've walked these streets in a Carnival of sites to see
D
All the cheap thrill seekers the vendors and the dealers
                                   F#m
they crowded around me

A
Have been blind , have I been lost
E
Inside myself and my own mind
D
Hypnotize Mesmerize
                                       F#m
by what my eyes have seen

F#m                                                     E
I've walked these streets in a spectacle of wealth and poverty
D
In the diamond market the scarlet welcome carpet
                                               F#m
they've laid, just rolled out for me

F#m                                                    E
and I 've walked these streets in the madhouse asylum they can be
D
where a wild and misfit profit, a traffic island star
                                  F#m
and he raves of saving me

A
Have I been wrong have I been wise
E
to shut my eyes and play along
D
Hypnotized, Paralyzed
                                        F#m
by what my eyes have found

By what my eyes have seen,  What they have seen

D
Hypnotized, Mesmerized
                   F#m
By what my eyes have found
F#m
In that great street carnival

In that Carnival
