Lyrics

Big Top

Written By: Jefferson Fox

In a traveling circus
where i was juggling fire
she walked a tightrope
without a net

out of nothing more than boredom
we combined her act and mine
which we thought was funny
but scared everybody else to death

and it was always our intention
to let go before we got burned
of course we never did
cause that's just not how we learn
and she said she always imagined
we might go out in that fashion
but i never cared
cause i didn't think that you'd get hurt

the clowns had acted out
our demise a thousand times
to the laughter of the middle-class
and their kids

but that night the silence was as loud
as any drunken, southern crowd
when we hit the ground
the way we did

and it was always our intention
to let go before we got burned
of course we never did
cause that's just not how we learn
and she said she always imagined
we might go out in that fashion
but i never cared
cause i didn't think that you'd get hurt

we landed in the bleachers
between the kids and all the teachers
we set the big top on fire

scarred a lot of folks
scared the animals off with the smoke
and you became the victim of my desire

and it was always our intention
to let go before we got burned
of course we never did
cause that's just not how we learn
and she said she always imagined
we might go out in that fashion
but i never cared
cause i didn't think that you'd get hurt

Nobody's Fault

Written By: Jefferson Fox

I was the one who went away
but it feels like you left me
no answer , no call
a lot like you're not there at all
Nobody's Fault

The only advice I can give you
don't make promises at all
people do what people want to
life takes you where it ought to
bottom line it's Nobody's Fault

Water might choose to become
teardrops, snowflakes, an ocean
whatever it does, whichever one
it's just wet for awhile, then it's gone
it's Nobody's Fault

It's nobody's fault the dog barks at you
nobody knows what he's going through
nobody's fault that the moon went down
or that gravity ties you to the ground
nobody's fault you cut yourself,
your eyes add salt
we all fall down a lot
it's Nobody's Fault

There's a lot of folks die
a lot of folks born
whole lot of changing
a whole lot of forms
a lot of time we invest on regret
with no return on what we've spent
it's Nobody's Fault
