lyrics

He tied me tightly to the wheel for 13 shows a week
Narrowly avoiding death is not a new routine
I’m spinning around in this circle, spinning around in this circle, spinning around in this circle wondering if I’ll ever make it out

on that day she told her heart
to take a little time off from tossing knives in the dark

serenity will do me good in this box out in the woods
taking up a new routine, breaking ranks with Carney kin
sideshow royalty in captivity
calcified, trapped inside, wondering if I’ll ever make it out

walking away she sold her heart
the day he tore them away from tossing knives in the dark
boredom’s contagious they were doomed from the start
their eyes held smiles bared teeth tear apart

highwire sideshow she was the queen
spun around in a wheel catching bullets in her sharp teeth

about

Ketman Boston, Massachusetts

"One more reason a growing number of people here aren’t miserable? KETMAN — who have triple-handedly restored power to the power trio. Of course, they’ve also restored wit, invention, and brains, but no one wants to see a 'brain trio.' As far as we’re concerned, they’re the best band Boston rock’s got."
