Lyrics

She deceived everyone around
In her magic show I played the clown

I was king of the card trades and she wore the jewels
Wearing thrift store clown suit I played the fool
But the best was last when she sawed me in half
And the audience laughed, and the audience

Black fours
Red fives
Red queens
Black kings

And the seam on this dream is beginning to tear
No more card tricks, I wanna play solitaire

Turn up the lights, hang the curtain down
The magic show is over, you killed the clown

It was a perfect murder now I wanna wake up
But the teeth of the blade are beginning to cut
And Matilda the queen saws me clearly in half
While the audience laughs, while the audience

Black fours
Red fives
Red queens
Black kings

And the seam on this dream is beginning to tear
No more card tricks, I wanna play solitaire

And the seam on this dream is beginning to tear
No more card tricks, I wanna play solitaire
