  • Once upon a time in a daymare
    Dying to meet you, litlle child, enter enter this sideshow

    Time for bed, the cradle still rocks
    Thirteen chimes on a dead man's clock
    Tick-tock, tick-tock, tick-tock

    The bride will lure you, cook you, eat you
    Your dear innocence boiled to feed the evil in need of fear

    Burning farms and squealing pigs
    A pool of snakes to swim with, oh sweet poison
    Bite me, bite me

    Ladies and gentlemen
    Be heartlessly welcome
    To Cirque De Morgue
    And what a show we have for you tonight

    Restless souls will put on their dancing shoes
    Mindless ghouls with lots of limbs to lose
    Illusionists, contortionist,
    Tightrope walkers tightening the noose

    La, la, la, la
    La, la, la, la
    La, la, la, la

    Horde of spiders, closet tentacles
    Laughing harpies with their tallons ripping, sher-chrisss, per-vizz

    The pendulum still sways for you
    Such are the darks here to show you, child in a corner
    Fallen mirrors, all kingdom in cinders Writer/s: ERNO VUORINEN, JUKKA NEVALAINEN, MARKO HIETALA, TUOMAS HOLOPAINEN
