Carnival .... [is this all a Carnival?]


Ive walked these streets A virtual stage It seemed to me Make up on their faces Actors took their Places next to me Ive walked these streets In a carnival Of sights to see All the cheap thrill seekers The vendors and the dealers They crowded around me Have I been blind Have I been lost Inside my self and My own mind Hypnotized Mesmerized By what my eyes have seen? Ive walked these streets In a spectacle of wealth and poverty In the diamond markets The scarlet welcome carpet That they just rolled out for me Ive walked these streets In the mad house asylum They can be Where a wild eyed misfit prophet On a traffic island stopped And he raved of saving me Have I been blindHave I been lost Inside my self and My own mind Hypnotized Mesmerized By what my eyes have seen? Have I been wrong Have I been wise To shut my eyes And play along Hypnotized Paralyzed By what my eyes have found By what my eyes have seen What they have seen? Have I been blind Have I been lostInside my self and My own mind Hypnotized Mesmerized By what my eyes have foundIn that great street carnival

In that carnival?

Natalie Merchant - Carnival

[o 1º nome dela é fantástico ;), mas a música é para nunca esquecer...]

Por falar em musicas com Carnival no titulo... Mete os ouvidos em Poets of the Fall e ve o video Carnival of Rust. O video é simplesmente magnífico! E a música...
