about

One final whisper through blood spattered lips made him want to do it again. Keep it alive, do it again. Pierce that sickly human flesh and crush those useless bones one more time. "Hiding from Owl will get you found, human. Found and bound, and played with. Best not speak when hiding, stupid human. Oh," Owl's feathers rustled in amusement, "suppose you need that tongue to talk. Well, that's a shame. Such a shame. It is such a pleasant game, that. and it never ends."

lyrics

Take my hand come see carnival pleasure.
Come let me teach you carnival magic.
Take my lips, taste my carnivore appetite.
Take it away from me.
Carnival madness.

Incriminate.
No sin too far in pleasure Kingdom.
Liberate, burn like a star.
At the carnival.

And so the story goes.
But it's not over 'til it's over.
Not until the fat lady decides to lie down.
To disappear, to die.
To fade into nothing.
To escape the watchers.
It's not over until it's over.
Until nothing but shadows cover the bodies, the naked skin and the flesh.
The thoughts of skin, on sin.
All the masks fell away.
The masquerade became pain.
The games never end in this carnival.

Pleasure and pain comfort you and the carnival is free for all.
Hunger comes under the leprechaun sky.
But it ain't over 'til it's over for the fat lady.

A touch of insane welcomes you.
And the carnival is free for all.
Liberation comes in lucid entropy.
Come to see.
But it ain't over 'til it's over for the fat lady.

Incriminate.
No sin too far in pleasure Kingdom.
Liberate, burn like a star.
At the carnival.

Take my hand, come see carnival pleasure.
Take your fear, make it carnival magic.
Take my flesh, taste my carnivore appetite.
Take it away from me, carnival madness.

Incriminate.
No sin too far in pleasure Kingdom.
Liberate, burn like a star.
At the carnival.

Incriminate.
No sin too far in pleasure Kingdom.
Liberate, burn like a star.
At the carnival.
