Natalie Merchant

Natalie Merchant - Carnival

rate me

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.
