Carney: Hurry up, show's startin'!

Random Patron: Man, I can't believe they still having
it, I better get my butt in there right now!

Thy Ring Leader:
Ladies and gentlemen! Welcome to the sensational and amazing Carnival of Carnage!
They said it wouldn't happen, they said it wouldn't last
But boys and girls and everyone we got a carnival for that ass
Tens of thousands of freak sideshows and fools
A carnival who together has lived by their own rules!

(Shaggy 2 Dope):
We looked into thy stars, foretold everyone
somethin' dark and wicked this way comes.
We told of oddities, crawling from the dark
and a carnival which we can all belong!
I dwell upon thy streets, and I can tell you this
I see some circus Juggalo shit goin' on.
People drawn together, by rare and scrubby music,
and we even gather once a year to PUT IT DOWN!

With tilt-a-whirls and merry-goes,
and carnivals of Faygo,
we're just tryin' to tell you all about the light, right.
Now all the Joker Cards have fallen with spectacular array
so when the Wraith is callin', walk into the light, right.

(Violent J):
I hold a bloody axe, dress in hatchet red,
we speak languages people don't understand.
I send Faygos via punt it clear across the stadium
in fashion only fuckin' Juggalos could ever demand!
I got ninjas in my backyard wearin' Anybody Killa paint,
and I'm thinkin' what the fuck is goin' on? (What the fuck is goin' on)
Then I see the platinum on the wall and I realize the carnival's been right here all along
so let's bring it on!


(Shaggy 2 Dope & Violent J):
Thy crows have overlooked, we gave you all they gave
Thy carousel will spin on through the night (Through the night!)
In Oz I'd be the wizard, because I'm overwhelmed
but we just hope the Joker Cards will point you out to the light,
So you'll be tight!
