1.
Well step right up and let's begin With a new twist on an old friend: Ring around the world we're in, Pocket full of nothing! Ashes, ashes: we all will burn.
2.
After Summer's bounty is heaved, But before Winter's frost is breathed, There is a time to celebrate death, ghouls and ungodly sights! For on this night since long ago It is believed that the dead return (Well, step right up and let's begin...) The dead return! Some with malice, Others with mirth! All with the intent to stay their turn. Fear not this ghastly night: In the beginning as in the end All returns to what is to be... (Well, step right up and let's begin...)

Witches fly and black cats cross, When nothing is what it seems That's the one to make my own: I'll force my way to flesh and bone! There once was a boy That with all his might Would count down the days To one particular night. That's the one to make my own: I'll force my way to flesh and bone! His story started When he was very young Watching scary movies In his house of fun. Each and every year From then til now He awaits the only day When he can act Any which way. On this night when the dead can walk, When the Devil's minions do his bidding, When witches fly and black cats cross your path When nothing is what it seems. (When nothing is what it seems!) That's the one to make my own: I'll force my way to flesh and bone! My carnival of fear from long ago Has come to be the world I know! That's the one to make my own: I'll force my way to flesh and bone!

Where am I? Help me! I can't take the screams anymore! Stop the voices in my head, help me! No more pain. Leave me alone - I am in bliss... Willst, feiner Knabe, du mit mir gehn? Meine Töchter sollen dich warten schön; Meine Töchter führen den nächtlichen Reihn, Und wiegen und tanzen un singen dich ein!”** Witch doctor is here! Wretched and locked, All here are privy to the Skinner Box. To say what they say, to do as they do; Rooms are hard, potions new. With fear of beyond, without and within; Confinement cold, potions thin. There is no treat, this poison pill: A midnight trick to dissect the will Committed to horrors, The hum of machines pierce the soul The banshee screams! (That's the one to make my own I'll force my way to flesh and bone!)
5.
Stop now! Stay there! Sleep sound. What's mine is mine, What's yours is mine. What's mine is mine You are mine! Breathe me in, draw me out. Breathe me in, you are mine. It's nothing detrimental It's a matter of trust! (Well step right up and let's begin!) Stop now! Stay there! Sleep sound. Trust. (This digital shite doesn't even exist!?) «Arrêtez-vous! Il n'y a rien de ce monde qui vous appartienne!» It's a matter of trust.

I woke up this morning, I didn't feel so fine. I woke up this morning, didn't feel so fine. I was up all night, I'm tellin ya, with some friends of mine I done some things last night yeah, that ain't so good I said I done some things last night that no one ever should, no no. But now is the time to, to do my soul some good My soul's worn through Lord, how I've been down. Oh let me tell ya: This soul's worn through Lord, oh I've been down With some sweet lovin' sunshine, gonna help me now Well I done some things last night, yeah, that ain't so good I done some things last night that no one ever should With the comin' up sunrise will do my soul some good.

With the comin' up sunrise will do my soul some good...
