The Wall of Death (lyrics) by Richard Thompson

Let me ride on the wall of death one more time.
Let me ride on the wall of death one more time.
You can waste your time on the other rides,
but this is the nearest to being alive.
Let me take my chances on the Wall of Death.

You can go with the crazy people in the crooked house.
You can fly away on the rocket or spin in the mouse.
The tunnel of love might amuse you.
And Noah’s Ark might confuse you.
But let me take my chances on the Wall of Death.

On the Wall of Death,
   All the World is far from me.
On the Wall of Death,
   It’s the nearest to being free.

Well you’re going nowhere when you ride on the carousel.
And maybe you’re strong, but what’s the good in ringing a bell?
The switchback will make you crazy.
Beware of the bearded lady.
Oh let me take my chances on the Wall of Death.

Let me ride on the wall of death one more time.
Let me ride on the wall of death one more time.
You can waste your time on the other rides,
but this is the nearest to being alive.
Let me take my chances on the Wall of Death.
Let me take my chances on the Wall of Death.
Let me take my chances on the Wall of Death.
