1. The Carnival Fascinates Me Until It Comes To Town (Welcome to the Show)Edit

Main Page

Come one! Come all! Come to the greatest show in history! Life, death, instinct, bravery! The best of society and the lowest of plebeians! The show where magnificence will manifest And the bowels of society will be bought for chumps and chimps.
However, this place is not designed for children. Despite the bright lights and the magisterial music, I must remind our patrons That the carnival is not for children. Nor for the faint of heart or pregnant women
Any sickness or stolen articles is not my doing But yours to own up to. On that note, Did we mention the star of our show? He stands with a scythe at our door Laughing at an audience of martyrs, Who could very well contribute to tomorrow’s mayhem.
But just enjoy the show for now. After all, it doesn't last forever. Every show claims one soul; It’s inevitable.
Untimely deaths are just confetti And bloodshed is made to look like candy. On that note, Did I mention the children actually make this show? Because our confessions are like sentences And the offering basket collects rose-coloured glasses. Everyone who walks through that door gets injected with life . . .
It’s actually in the popcorn: Along with diabetes and clotted arteries And a dose of reality; Throw in a hint of technology and you have today’s society, Where we pay a stranger to tell our story to, To place feelings and fears and problems on someone who isn’t a friend And have them prescribe something to you that isn't simply love.
Today, tragedy is turned into comedy. A diagnose becomes comatose becomes funny. Any overdose or adipose forces a smile to crack, And your back begins to break by every knife thrown, Every tiger tamed and height obtained Forces a fault through your brain, Hello, my name is Insane! It’s spectacular!
And the audacity people have because they’re “alone,” When you are put in this show with an act Chosen by God, not man, To be in your own circus of mistakes, faults, guilts, and burdens, Blazing at 4000 degrees Fahrenheit Because we presume pressure is like hell— And hell is hot.
And we presume death is only a part of life Like how we presume it will take only three days to grieve, And three hours to remember them among friends, Three minutes to fully register that they’re gone. They're story is lost forever on the high wire. Every word spoken, letter tasted, Slowly slipping away as they hurtled towards the ground.
But what would the purpose of my show be If there weren't a little high stakes? Chances and gambles and laws and rules: “I dare you” becomes “I own you.”
Addictions surpass pills and needles; They turn to adrenaline and rebellion And if the risk doesn't mutate into thrill Will I see your face out there in the crowd?
Because your sheltered life will turn to ash And all those bubbles will pop some day And then, only then, Will you honestly let fear stand in the way.
“See?” I tell the young. “This is why we need you. We need your bliss and purity and untainted sanity. And see? For me, I'm asking you now Can’t you see how the carnival fascinates me Until it comes to town?”
But you stare at me with this look in your eye, The same one dreamers and children and lunatics have. Because fear is still a tap that is either on or off— Hot or cold— And though you'll have your highs and lows You've never once been lukewarm, With a scythe inches from your ear, As death whispers threats chilling your soul, Because the show must go on.

2. At the Start (Welcome to the Show II)Edit

Main Page

Here, at the start,
Loving you
With my whole heart.

Here, where we begin,
Not realizing there’s
Such a thing as sin.

Here, at the start,
Opposites attract
And we’re poles apart.

Here, where we begin,
Full of love from
All that you have been.

Here, at the start,
Hardly knowing about innocence
Or that it can be lost.

3. In Times (You’re My Home)Edit

Main Page

In times long forgotten
When pain would never cease.
In times when lightning would fork the sky
And more rain fell than
I could believe in.
Oh, more than I could believe.

In times when my home was a rickety house
Without a front door,
You came a-knockin’,
On the rotten floor;
On the rotten floor.
And in times long forgotten
In fields where flowers grew,
Where petals were wonders
Just for me and you,
I found a lover,
Someone I know is true.
And though times may go unremembered,
I know love never will.

I guess that’s where I was
Wrong,
Ooh, I was wrong,
I was wrong,
Oh, I’m not alone,
I was wrong,
Ooh, I was wrong,
I was wrong,
Oh, ‘cause you’re my home.

4. In Your Darkest of Hours ( I )Edit

Main Page

In your darkest of hours
I will catch you as you fall,
A butterfly trying to fly off.

In your darkest of hours
I will help you learn
How to put out the fire
When it starts to burn.

In your darkest of hours
I’ll be there,
Just as I’ll always be—
And I’ll be there to save you.
Though some love will change,
Ours will stay the same.
I’ll take you from your darkest hour
Into the light of day.

In your darkest of hours
You’ll lie in my arms,
Safe from this world’s strange harms.

In your darkest of hours
I’ll hold you as you cry,
And I’ll always be there
To show that love never dies.

Yes, I’ll be there,
In your darkest of hours,
To show you fields full of flowers;
I’ve grown them all for you,
My beloved,
Just so you can see how much I
Love you.

I love you.

In your darkest of hours,
I’ll be there to help you smile.
Even in tragedy
I’ll help you to smile.

In your darkest of hours
I’ll be there,
Just as I’ll always be—
And I’ll be there to save you,
Though some love may fail;
I’ll take you from your darkest hour
Into the light of day.
Always the light of day.

In your darkest of hours
I will still love you.
And I know I will
Because I don’t even have to try to.

5. The CloseEdit

Main Page

Before you go away,
There’s a few last things I need to say:
You’ve always been a great friend,
And I love that you can smile
Even at the end.
Oh, even at the end.

Smile as the curtains close;
This can only be the end of act one.
The end of act one.
‘Cause a person can only hurt for so long
And I’m here to tell you it was worth it
Even if it was hard.

And even though it’s strange to admit it,
I love holding your hand at the end.
Here comes the close,
See it isn’t that bad.
I’ll see you in another life,
I’ll see you on another night,
And then we won’t need
To say goodbye,
And then we’ll know it was worth the fight.

God has always got a plan
We might not like it, but it still stands,
So don’t be angry now—
No, don’t be afraid—
Just smile and be on your way
Be on your way, oh,
It’ll be okay,
It’ll be okay,
It’ll be okay,
It’ll be okay,
It’ll be okay,
It’ll be okay!

And even though it’s strange to admit it,
I love holding your hand at the end.
Here comes the close,
See it isn’t that bad.
I’ll see you in another life,
I’ll see you on another night,
And then we won’t need
To say goodbye,
And then we’ll know it was worth the fight.

But for now it’s time to say goodbye,
For now it’s time to say goodbye,
For now it’s time to say goodbye,
For now it’s time to say goodbye.
Goodbye,
Goodbye,
Goodbye,
Goodbye!
Oh, why?

6. It’s Impossible (It’s a Fact)Edit

Main Page

I try to empty myself
Of all memories of you
Because it’s impossible to be satisfied
With only this cracked reflection
Of your truth.
Was it ever truth?

I try to remember you exactly
As you were,
But then I always end up asking myself
If there was one word
That could have saved our life.

It’s impossible to live with a memory
That could not be right;
It’s impossible to remember you
Because memories change with time;
It’s impossible to forget you
Because I want to remember our life;
And it’s impossible to rest in peace
When I see your smile every night—
And all I can ask myself is:
Was that smile always a lie?
Was it always a lie?

Well, one thing’s for certain,
And it will always be,
Though memories will change,
The fact will never change
For me.
Not for me.

I try not to think
Because thinking leads to questions—
And there’s no answer to why
You left so early
Or why you left me behind
Or why I wake up hoping to see your face
Morning and night.
And even if there was an answer,
It doesn’t change the fact
That our story should have been longer
And why for the rest of my life I’ll wear a mask.

It’s impossible to live with a memory
That could not be right;
It’s impossible to remember you
Because memories change with time;
It’s impossible to forget you
Because I want to remember your life;
And it’s impossible to rest in peace
When I see your smile every night—
And all I can ask myself is:
Was that smile always a lie?
Was it always a lie?

Well, one thing’s for certain,
And it will always be,
Though memories will change,
The fact will never change,
At least not for me.

I try to fill myself
With memories of you
Because I’ll only be satisfied
With the closest semblance
Of your truth.

It’s impossible to live with a memory
That could not be right;
It’s impossible to remember you
Because memories change with time;
It’s impossible to forget you
Because I want to remember your life;
And it’s impossible to rest in peace
When I see your smile every night—
And all I can ask myself is:
Was that smile always a lie?

Well, one thing’s for certain,
And it will always be,
Though memories will change,
The fact will never change,
At least not for me.

It’s impossible not to love you;
It’s impossible not to hate
Life for giving me facts.
I thought our love was my fate.

There’s nothing inspiring about a life
That could have been.
I hope you know that it’s impossible for me to live
After all these things I’ve seen
Now I’m waiting to die.

It’s impossible,
It’s impossible,
It’s impossible,
It’s a fact!

It’s impossible,
It’s impossible,
It’s impossible,
It’s a fact!

It’s impossible,
It’s impossible,
It’s impossible,
It’s a fact!

It’s impossible,
It’s impossible,
It’s impossible,
It’s a fact!

Why? Why? Why? Why? Why? Why? Why? Why?

But I guess that’s just one of the many
Impossible facts of life.

I try,
But nothing can ever change the fact
That you’re not here
With me.

7. Slip AwayEdit

Main Page

Just let me say it now
So at least I know you hear:
“I love you, dear.”

I don’t know
How to make this anymore clear;
I want you near.

So sometimes when I miss you (every day),
I look right in the mirror and say:

“Why’d you let it slip away?
Why’d you let it slip away?
I don’t know,
I don’t know any better than you
Why I let this slip away.
I don’t know,
I don’t know why things worked out this way.
Why’d I let this slip away?
Why’d I let this slip away?”

Don’t hold it against me
If I want to hold
Your hand.

And don’t push me down
If I tell you I want to stand
Beside you.

Still, sometimes when memories run too deep,
I merely close my eyes
And weep—
And whisper:

“Why’d you let it slip away?
Why’d you let it slip away?
I don’t know,
I don’t know any better than you do
Why you let this slip away.
I don’t know,
I don’t know why things worked out this way.
Why’d you let this slip away?
Why’d you let this slip away?”

But I have to ask:
“Could you believe in me
If I told you I’d learned to believe in myself?
And could you love me
If I told you I’d learned to love myself?
And could you trust in me
If I told you that all I say is true,
And that, in the end,
I still love you?”

I won’t let this slip away.
No, I won’t,
No, I won’t—
Not today;
I won’t let this slip away.
No, I won’t,
No, I won’t—
Not ever.
I won’t let this slip away.
No, I won’t,
No, I won’t—
Because I made a promise.
I won’t let this slip away.
No, I won’t,
No, I won’t,
‘Cause I’ll love you
Forever.

8. Will You Understand?Edit

Main Page

I know you’ll understand
That I’ll do my best to stand,
No matter how much the wind might
Whip in my face, I will fight.
Just so I can say I never ran.

I never ran, my dear . . .

I know you’ll understand
That I’ll always be your friend;
No matter what comes or goes,
No matter what the flames of Hell might know,
I will be there till the end.

And I’m still here . . .

I hope you’ll understand
That I’ll always be there to take your hand,
However, whether you accept or decline
Is your decision and not mine;
After all, we change like an hourglass’s sand.

And there’s nothing we can do about that, now is there . . . ?

I hope you’ll understand
That I’ll try and try and try
And I’m sorry if I ever tell you a lie;
I’m sorry if I ever fail
I’m sorry if I don’t prevail—
But love will never die.

What a joke . . .

Maybe you’ll understand
When I am away,
Gone for days or years
On seas ridden with fears.
I would have rather stayed with you.
Safe.

Or at least should have been . . .

Maybe you’ll understand
If God doesn’t smile on me;
If the sun refuses to light up the sky
When danger and doom comes nigh
Upon this great divide.
I’m not clean.

And because of you I never will be . . .

Will you understand
That I know that you’ve been through hard times?

Will you understand
That I’m still here even when life is not kind?

Do you understand
That I know it’s so hard to unwind?

Do you understand
That when you look for someone to see
Everyone is blind . . .
Well, besides me . . . ?

Can you understand
That we all make mistakes?

Can you understand
When I bend and bleed and break?

Why can’t you understand?


Please understand
That I know how you feel:
That the nightmares are real
But they’re not beyond love’s power to heal.

I’m begging you to understand
That I’ve never regretted the day I came!
That things may not be the same
But I don’t want them ever to be that way again.
The pain is great,
But not so great
As the pain of losing you.

Understand that I’d
Fall on my knees and rip out my heart
Just to watch it beat
Its last beat for you.

Understand that I’d
Tear this whole damn world apart
Just to show you
The state of my heart.

And yet I still know,
As you drift away
Like a cloud on a stormy day,
I would be perfectly happy
To lay down my life
For you.

I’d still be happy to feel
A knife between my ribs;
I’d still be happy
Even after all those things that you did.
I’d still be happy
Just to die smiling
Knowing that you love me.

Because so long as you know how much I love you
I really wouldn’t mind to die;
So long as it’s for you.
Just don’t leave,
Just don’t push me away,
And trust me, I’ll be here to stay.


But regardless of what path you choose
I will always—
Regardless of mistakes or madness,
Regardless of these dim dark dances,
Regardless of the ringing
Of a thousand sinners singing,
Regardless of anything—
I will always love you.

9. The Unicorn and the WaspEdit

Main Page

12:39—I’m just writing a line,
Logic and reason on my heart and mind.
Stone on the brink—a missing link
Between my words and what they really think.

A world unknown, here I’m writing a poem,
Life displayed—that’s all I’ve shown.
Will you recall a tower’s fall?
Fifty years what then seemed so small.

Once it was a large creation
A work of art,
A cosmic spark,
A wondrous star now born,
To blaze and shine
For now this time
Or a crack in the sky is torn.

Little cost—the unicorn and the wasp.
Fifty billion novel ideas or time well lost.
Murderous rage, so I turn the next page.
Can I sit in culture to a new age?

A room on fire
The jewel thief liar,
Surviving work
Or alien birth.
Me, insect as a lonely spire
Such little cost
The unicorn and the wasp.

Once it was a large creation
A work of art,
A cosmic spark,
A wondrous star now born.
To blaze and shine
For now this time
Or a crack in the sky is torn.

10. To Be Brutally HonestEdit

Main Page

To be brutally honest,
I’d like to make some sense
Of promises unkept
And stories unwritten.

To be brutally honest,
I know I made some mistakes,
But my love was never fake.
Why’d you make this decision?

To be brutally honest,
I really miss you;
To be brutally honest,
I’m still in love with you;
To be brutally honest,
I’m glad to be rid of you;
To be brutally honest,
I don’t know what the hell I’m gonna do.

To be brutally honest,
I don’t hold it against your hand
That you don’t understand,
But I do.

To be brutally honest,
The hardest part is watching you hurt;
To be brutally honest,
I can’t forget a single word;
To be brutally honest,
You can’t take and take and take what’s mine;
To be brutally honest,
I hate you all the time.

I want to kiss you all night long,
I want to hold you in my arms,
Sleep in my arms tonight,
Everything will be alright.
Here’s 365 reasons,
One for every day,
Just to remind me you don’t love me anymore,
In any sort of way.

I love you,
I loved you,
I love you,
I loved you,
I love you,
I loved you
I love you,
OH FUCK YOU!

And I’m sorry but you should be, too.
‘Cause I’m still in love with you.
No telling what I will do
‘Cause I’m still
In love
With you.

To be brutally honest.

11. Peter PanEdit

Main Page

12. Master, MasterEdit

Main Page

Master, Master, tear them down.
Kill them soft;
Without a sound.

Hear them scream
Watch them cry
Tell them off
Let them die.

Fight fire with fire,
I tell you now,
Make them suffer,
Until they bow.

They must feel it,
They must see,
They must know,
What they did to me.


Master, Master, show them truth.
Strike them hard
Without my ruth.

Master, Master, do your best
Send them to
Eternal rest.

They must listen,
Hear you sing;
Show them sadness,
Show them sting.

Master, Master, they are vapid
Push them over
Through the rapids.

Master, Master, entomb them now
Listen to me
I will endow.

Master, Master, make them fall,
Make them end
Kill them all.

13. In Your Darkest of Hours ( II )Edit

Main Page

In your darkest of hours,
I’ll watch you crawl,
An insect with its wings lopped off.

In your darkest of hours,
I’ll watch you burn;
I’ll watch you light the fire
And finally learn.

In your darkest of hours
I’ll be there,
Just as I’ve always been—
But this time I’ll be watching you,
Laughing,
And I’ll go from being your daytime
To being your darkest of hours.
Always lost in your darkest of hours.

In your darkest of hours
I’ll watch you lie
Still pretending you’re safe (sane).

In your darkest of hours
I’ll watch you cry
And this time I won’t be there
To tell you it’s okay
That you should still try.

No, I’ll be there
To use your bones as flowers
To give to my beloved.
I’ll be there
To show you my power
To show you how you should have heard
My voice when I gave everything to you
And you left me with nothing.

In your darkest of hours
You’ll be my favourite comedy.
Remember, comedy equals tragedy
Let’s forget about the time.


In your darkest of hours
We’ll be there,
Just as we’ll always be—
But this time we’ll be watching you,
Laughing,
And we’ll transform all your daytimes
Into your darkest of hours.
Always trapped in our darkest of hours.

In our darkest of hours
I would love to hate you.
And I know I can
Because I’ve already planned to do
Worse than that.

14. Feeling Satisfied?Edit

Main Page

Let me ask you right here, right now
Are you happy with the outcome?
Are you happy that you caved?
Are you happy that I finally gave
Everything?

And it must be a joke
Because I see that you are laughing.
Therefore, it must have been a hoax
All along.



So, let me ask you one more question.
Let me beg for your attention.
Let me try in vain
To have you explain.
You say you learnt some lesson
And I sure know I did
I’m never going to be guessing
Because now I know our love was nothing
More than shit.

So let me ask you one more time
Are you feeling satisfied?
Let me ask you one more time
How can you be fine?
Let me ask you one more time
How long has it been since you were mine?
Let me ask you one more time
Are you finally satisfied!?

Are you feeling satisfied!?

Isn’t it funny how the one who
Made me want to live
Is the one I want dead in the end?

Isn’t it strange how the one who
My all, I did give,
Leaves me in the end?

Isn’t it funny how I loved you at all?

So let me ask you one more time
Are you feeling satisfied?
Let me ask you one more time
How can you be fine?
Let me ask you one more time
How long has it been since you were mine?
Let me ask you one more time
Are you finally satisfied!?

Are you finally satisfied!?

Are you fucking SATISFIED!?

15. Fear is a Funny ThingEdit

Main Page

Fear—
Fear is a funny little thing,
It can make you scream and laugh and cry
All at the same time.

Fear—
Fear can leave you all alone
Pushing all those
Who care for you the most
Away
(You pushed them all away).

Fear, it gets the best of us all,
But you’ve become your fear
And that’s your own fault.

And now I know that fear is a funny thing
Can’t you see how hard I’m laughing!?
Fear! Fear controlled your heart
And tore our love apart
Isn’t that one hell of a joke!?
Because now you finally have something to fear!

Fear! Fear! Fear!
Fear is a funny thing!
And now I’m what you need to fear!
Ooh, I’m what you need to fear!

And now I know that fear is a funny thing
Can’t you see how hard I’m laughing!?
Fear! Fear controlled your heart
And tore our love apart
Isn’t that one hell of a joke!?
Because now you finally have something to fear!

Fear! Fear! Fear!
Fear! Fear! Fear!
Fear! Fear! Fear!

Fear is a funny thing!
Fear! Fear! Fear!
Fear! Fear! Fear!
Fear! Fear! Fear!

And now we’re what you need to fear!
And even though it’s strange to admit it,
We love holding your hand at the end.
Here comes the close,
See it isn’t that bad.
We’ll see you in another life,
We’ll see you on another night,
And then we won’t need
To say goodbye,
And then we’ll know it was worth the fight.

But for now it’s time for us to say goodbye.

For now it’s time for us to say goodbye,
For now it’s time for us to say goodbye,
My dear.

And now I know that fear is a funny thing
Can’t you see how hard I’m laughing!?
Fear! Fear controlled your heart
And tore our love apart
Isn’t that one hell of a joke!?
Because now you finally have something to fear!

Fear! Fear! Fear!
Fear is a funny thing!
And now I’m what you need to fear!
Ooh, we’re what you need to fear!
For now it’s time for us to say goodbye,
For now it’s time for us to say goodbye,
For now it’s time for us to say goodbye,
My dear.

16. At the End (Welcome to the Show III)Edit

Main Page

Here, at the end,
To think I once loved you
With this final act around the bend.

Here, where we close,
Not realizing there’s
Secrets only Hell can know.

Here, at the end,
Opposites attract
I guess that’s what makes enemies friends.

Here, where we close,
All out of love;
Indeed, it comes and now all goes.

Here, at the end,
Knowing all innocence has died,
And that it’s something no God can mend.

“Welcome to the show.”

Can’t you see what you have done to me?
So blinded by your fear that you cannot see.
And can’t you see what you have come to be?
So wrong in your rights that you’ll never be free.

I know some things just aren’t really meant to be,
But that hardly matters as I drift further
Into my insanity.

He lifts up the knife to end their life,
Nobody’s gonna tell him what is wrong or right,
It ends tonight! It ends tonight!
He’s finally got the will to finish the fight.

He’s got a gun against his own head,
And one against hers: they’ll soon be dead,
It’s finally time for her to pay
For the way that her love turned out fake.

Can’t you see that you belong to me?
So blind to what easily could have been.
And can’t you see what you’ve made me to be?
So void of innocence, waiting to set us free.

I know that some things really are meant to be,
And I suppose fate was indefinitely attached
To my own insanity.

He laughs as he reaches out to hold her hand
She pulls away. He yells: “DON’T YOU UNDERSTAND!?”
She shakes her head and then begins to scream;
He knows exactly what she means.

“With this you’ll know what you meant to me!
That’s the point of this ending, now don’t you see?
The close really isn’t all that bad:
Remember all those great times we had?

This is where her whole world collapses,
This is goodbye to all second chances,
This is where she’ll finally try to explain
But it’s too late: He’s gone insane.

So welcome to the show!
Yes, welcome to the show!
This is me finally letting go.
Sit back and watch the curtains close.

So welcome to the show! (So here he goes and takes his final stand)
Yes, welcome to the show! (It’s not at all what he’d had planned)
This is me finally letting go! (It ends tonight! It ends tonight!)
With a bullet at the close! (With a bullet at the close!)
