Natalie Merchant - Carnival Lyrics

Well,I've walked these streets
a virtual stage
it seemed to me
make up on their faces
actors took their
places next to me.

Well,I've walked these streets
in a carnival
of sights to see
all the cheap thrill seekers
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?

I've 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

And I've 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 blind?
have 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 lost?
have I been wrong?
have I been wise?
have I been strong?

have I been hypnotized,
mesmerized,
by what my eyes have found?
in that great street carnival,
in that carnival.

have I been blind?
have I been lost?
have I been wrong?
have I been wise?
have I been strong?

have I been hypnotized,
mesmerized,
by what my eyes have found?
in that great, street carnival,
in that carnival.
