Circus for a Psycho Lyrics
Psycho, here we go
You push until I break
And the anger turns to rage
Why can’t you just leave me alone
Got your finger on the trigger
You think that you’re the winner
You’re gonna get kicked off of your throne

Skillet is a Christian rock band so putting the song into this context you can think of it as he is trying to fight the temptation of the devil. He wants to stay true to his faith but the devil is making it difficult for him so he is telling the devil that he won't let in to the temptation without a fight.
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

A person who has been bullied all their life("You push me till I break. The anger turns to rage, why can't you just leave me alone?") finally starting to stand for themselves("Your finger on the trigger, you think that your the winner. But your gonna get kicked offa your throne!)

This song is about a person who was bullied all their life by a person, and he's had enough. "You push me till I break and the anger turns to rage" means that that person was been pushed around by the bully, and that he's had enough. "You're killing me slow but I ain't ready to die", means that the bully has been breaking the person (physically or emotionally). "Tonight, get ready for a fight, so now you know it's time to ride this circus for psycho", means that the person is going to fight back.

Skillet says Circus for a Psycho was just letting loose.

Awesome song. I think it's about him being treated badly, abused and bullied, but he's saying he's had enough. He's saying they pushed him to the breaking point and he's now fighting back. I guess the title means being in circus of evil, or something like that.

I think that the song either means he is fighting with the devil or that he is upset at someone who thinks he is better and insults him.

I think "circus for a psyco" means his life while being influenced by evil and the song dscribes how he wants out. That being said the song also says "pull the nuse tighter/ lift a little higher/ you're killing me slow but I ain't ready to die" that's obviously saying that while under the influence if evil, or the enemy, he is suffering and he finally brake free as described in the verse "...gonna get kicked of of your throne".
And that's about all I got.....have a nice day:)

I think this song is about being in a fight with the evil (the devil) and he thinks that he's the winner but he's gonna get kicked off of his throne. And he's thrying to kill us slowly but we're not ready to die yet.
God bless you :)
