Everybody is a victim of society 
Comedy, tragedy, vaudeville and variety 
Pantomime players in the grand tradition 
Winners and losers till the intermission 

Girl, I know the world's a stage 
That's what the poet said 
But I think our weird relationship 
Is way above my head 
I'll be your Casanova whipping by 
If that's what you desire 
But once I start performing 
I can't easily retire 

I'll swing on a trapeze 
I'll jump through hoops 
And I'll eat fire 
Be a human cannon ball 
And walk on the high wire 
Put on make-up, wear a wig 
I'll be your tragic clown 
But once you've got me up there 
I can't easily come down 

Don't drive me over the edge of it 
Can't you see I've got mixed-up emotions 
Joined the crowd just to be part of it 
That was the start of it 
Oh, now I'm over the edge 
(Don't drive me over the edge of it) 
Oh, over the edge 

The world is turning upside-down 
Civilization's dead, over the edge 
Economic turmoil, now the world is in the red 
Democracy's a shadow of its former glory 
Law and orders broken-down 
End of story 

My next door neighbour's totally snapped 
He's gone over the edge 
He's putting up barbed wire barricades 
Around the garden hedge 
And planting land mines on the lawn 
He's gone barmy 
According to his wife, he's formed a secret army 
Ever since he got laid off 
Something inside snapped 
His wife says he's gone 'round the twist 
Now there's no turning back 
All night he waits in the garden shed 
For the enemy to attack 
A suburban vigilante 
Dressed up in a union jack 
He's over the edge, oh, over the edge 

Don't drive me over the edge of it 
Woman, you are gonna drive me 
Totally over the edge 
Is it yes or is it no 
Are you gonna take the pledge 
The pressures of society are getting to your brain 
And forced you to act weird 
And put me under all this strain 
But don't drive me over the edge of it 
Stop while I've still got emotions 
Joined the crowd, just to be part of it 
That was the start of it 
Oh, over the edge 
Don't drive me over the edge of it 

Everybody is a victim of society 
Comedy, tragedy 
Vaudeville, variety 
Pantomime players in the grand tradition 
Forced into roles that leave them totally driven 
Right over the edge
