##The Basic Rules

Could you send me away to join a traveling show
One where people pay to go to see terrifying displays
Of derangement and will
Cos I reckon I've got one that'd top the bill

Oh I'd stand before the crowd,
Baby let me show you how
And how they'd roar -
She's really gonna do it for sure!
I'll tear myself apart
It's a woman breaking her own heart

I'll keep pushing trouble and strife
Till something gives in
When I can't make the pieces fit

As you crash against the news
Then you tell me what you want me to do
So tell me how
And what we're s'posed to do with this now
As I fall against the thought
That I've just gotta shake it off

You keep pushing trouble and strife
Till something gives in
When you can't make the pieces fit
