Walking towards the rusted gates
Seeing the remnants of its fate
Staring at the old clowns face
Remembering what times erased

Walking through the rusted gates
Breaking through the ancient chains
Lain in front was what remained
Of the permanent carnival of past days

The fortune teller’s box now just
Splinters covered by the dust
The mannequin that sits inside
Stares through you with peeling eyes

The roller coasters rusted round
And crumbling into the ground
And you can almost hear the sound
Of when its crash was set and bound

When the dead of the crash were found
Before their screams echoed around
After the cars flew too far out
Farther than the tracks would allow

The funhouse mirrors all are cracked
The remnants are all charred deep black
The fire that was long ago
Trapped the children who weren’t let go

If you walk in you may hear
Their laughter and their cries of cheer
Before the smoke had bound their fate
Before the ash wouldn’t let them escape

And a few steps down is the swimming pool
Abandoned and drained since 1922
What had occurred there no one quite knew
Only that some couldn’t make their way through

And this is when the attention drew
And the parks destruction was long overdue
Ever since these things occurred
I’m sure you’ll find someone who’s heard

The screams and shrieking sounds at night
The carousel turning and glittering lights
The lost souls and the disappeared
Of those who dared to venture near
