Track Name: Intro (To The Circus)
Welcome to my circus
Welcome to the show
We have Clowns and mimes and Freaks of all kinds
Welcome to my show
We have lions and tigers and bears of all sizes
Welcome to my show

But the greatest treat that you will find
Is the one that I can not hind
The elephant
The great elephant

We have trapeze, we have style
We mystics and we have power
We have KaNoots we have BaZoots
And we have lairs
Track Name: The Crows
The crows they come in murders not droves
They peak and they claw right down to your bone
It’s the flesh they desire it’s your alone
They’ll peak and they’ll claw right down to your soul

The crows they come in murders not droves
They flap and they caw in their terrible tones
It’s my mind they desire it’s mine alone
They’ll flap and they’ll caw right down to your soul
Track Name: The Believer
I’ve never been one to believe
I’ve never been one to believe
In what I can’t touch, what I can’t see
What I can’t feel, it does mean a thing

I’ve never been one to believe
No I’ve never been one to believe
But in these hard times
I’ll believe anything

To help me, to cure me
To heal me, to save me
To save me

As I lay me down to sleep
I pray the lord my soul to take
And if I die before I wake
I pray the lord my soul to take
Track Name: Into The Night
Into the night, into the night
Through the fire, through the fright
Angel of light, angel of light
Guide me now, into the bright

Into the night, into the night
Through the fire, through the fright
Angel of light, angel of light
Guide me now, hold me tight

Oh the light burns so very bright
Track Name: The Publican
Do you think I enjoy pushing you down
I don’t want to hear one more sound
I just need to collect on your dept
The taxes are due and you’re not paying rent

This is my job and I do it well
I’ll break your legs I should have to yell
This is my job and I do it well
I’ll bleed your dry and I’ll drag you to hell

Do you think I care about your crops
I don’t know the first thing about those droughts
I just need to collect on your dept
The taxes are due and I want every cent
Track Name: My Russian Love
We met in the summer
We courted through fall
We knew they would hate this
But we still won their ball
When they found us entwined
They screamed and I fell
They ripped us apart
And me dragged me to hell

Dance your way home to me
Dance your way dear
Dance your way through the fire and the fear
Dance your way home to me
Dance your way dear
Dance your ballet my sweet darling dear

They laughed when I asked them
Just where you had gone
They laughed and they stabbed
And I fell
But I had the last laugh
When I rose up
I danced one more dance with you
My sweet Russian love
Track Name: The Murder
I was just walking home that night
From the bar that always treats me right
When I found you, you were as cold as ice
I had to kneel down to push off the mice

You are so beautiful

They found me holding you in my arms
I pushed back your hair using all of my charms
I couldn’t just step away from your bones
I couldn’t leave you there all alone

You are so beautiful

They called me a monster
They called me a liar
They called me a sinner
They called me a murderer

When I woke up I was surrounded by officers
The detectives were yelling at all of the amateurs
They pulled a confession from me that was murder
But I never could be any kind of monster

She was so beautiful
Track Name: The Fossor
The dirt is all that I have known
Five generations of pushing in stone
Polishing graves and grooming the grass
Greeting your loved ones after you’ve passed

I dig all day, I dig all night
I move the earth with all my might
I dig all day, I dig all night
I dig your grave, I pack you in tight

The dirt is all that I want to know
It’s always there for me down below
Some people call me the groundskeeper
But I know the truth, I’m just a gravedigger
