about

A light dark roller-coaster of wild Danny Elfman like sounds that explores the attractions and emotions of a carnival

lyrics

Welcome to the carnival
witness the wonders of the world
step right up and test your strength and see the bearded girl
at the carnival... you won't believe your eyes
leave you second guessing guaranteed to mesmerize
well if you've got the gold and want your fortune told lady Esmerelda will look into your soul here at the carnival
We'll take away your breath, fill you full of goosebumps, and we'll scare you half to death...
Welcome to the carnival!

Well all you Misses and you Misters welcome to tonight's affair
on this bliss enchanted evening there's a mist throughout the air
so crisp that you can kiss the mysteries that lurk the fair
with our whispers we'll make history
come join us if you dare!

We've got a house of mirrors
you'll see yourself so silly that you'll laugh yourself to tears
at the carnival
Cotton candy's currency
but it leaves your fingers sticky and it rots away your teeth
now tell me who's afraid of a haunted house
go ahead and lose your mind we got a lost and found
our clowns will swallow swords and they fit 20 to a car
don't miss the one eyed gypsy when he's playing his guitar

Welcome to the carnival!

Funnel cakes, ventriloquists, & mimes and puppeteers
a juggling unicycle is in a haunted house of mirrors
acrobatic elephants trapezing through the air
a freak show that's so shocking you can't help but not to stare
a snake taming strongman with a flair for spinning blades
a fire eating monkey who can guess your age and weight
Calendars and caricature your face onto a poster
A tilt a whirl you'll surely hurl on the fastest roller coaster

The carnival has come to town
tell me have you seen the clowns on the merry go round?
We are the clowns on the merry go round
we like to ride it upside down
we sometimes smile and we sometimes frown
we're the clowns on the merry go round
Welcome to the carnival, you must not wait to step inside these wooden gates
Audiences levitate before your very eyes.
We've got every sight to see underneath this canopy
There is no other place to be to occupy your time

Welcome to the carnival!!
