HUMAN LEAGUE - Circus Of Death Lyrics

This is a song called the circus of death.It tells the true story of a circus we met.The first two verses concern the actual arrival at heathrow airport of commissioner steve mcgarrett.The third emotionally describes a map showing the range of the circus.The fourth and fifth were extracted from an article in the guardian of march the 19th, 1962.The last is a short wave radio message from the last man on earth.Nine o'clock flight from hawaiiThe trident is just touching downWe're waiting here on the tarmacMcgarrett is wearing a frownHe's here to help with a problemA blood-spattered curse on our landPlease cast your eye over this map, sirThis business is quite out of handThe circus of death is approachingIts pathway is painted in redBefore it the frightened and helplessBehind it a trail of the deadThe narcotic that forges their unionIs a substance known only to oneTo the clown it is known as dominionIt's a secret that he'll give to noneThe drug which gives the clown powerMeans the circus can never be stoppedAnd his dream can go on unhindered'til the last human being has droppedSpare me and my familyI've done you no wrongGo away, please let us beI've known you for too long
