Carnival of Misery 

 

Welcome to the (late night) monster show

Where all your fears come alive

Where you get to relive every mistake you’ve ever made

And the pain of every humiliation is revived 

Where we trade in your insecurities 

Where the darkness is as warm as a lovers breath 

Where loneliness is an ally

That grips you as tight as death

On shift from midnight to 4am 

You needn’t worry what’s under your bed

Or hiding in the closet 

Because  the real monsters live inside of your head

It’s the witching hour kiddies 

And they haven’t been fed

They’re an unpaid debt and it’s time to pay ‘em

Step right up we have waking nightmares to suit every taste

From high school bully to nuclear waste 

Lost love, broken love, or no love at all

Pick your poison

We’ll have a ball

For a limited time 

We’ll even throw in a pillow

To stifle your screams

Remember 

You can’t wake up because it’s not a dream
