Big Show

Stick with me, kid

We’ll go places

Places you never dreamed of

Far off, yet so close

Too close

Too close for comfort

You’ll see things in magical ways

And in the ways you’ll wish you hadn’t

It’s a long ride

But a short trip

To the back roads of everything

To the dirt paths of nothingness

Stick close by

This is no place to wonder alone

Especially if you don’t know

What you’re doing

There will be ups and downs

Things will be right side up

But also inside out

You’ll speak in tongues

Spitting fire and crashing rains

Thunder will be your comfort

Yet always out of reach

So reach, reach far and wide

Let in all go

While you take it all in


Then stick with me, kid

We’re going places

A journey like none before

Hold on

And hold on tight

This is the ride of a lifetime

This is the here and now

scary as shit

But fun as hell

You know the drill

You know the saying

Stick close

Buy the ticket, sit back

And enjoy this here big show

It’s gonna be quite the ride
