emanramen Ultimately, they make pop songs. But they're presented through a nightmarishly beautiful veil that a corpse bride would be seen in. One of those sounds that shouldn't work, but does amazingly. Favorite track: Fancy Dancing.

Track Name: Onion Grin
Dark and lonely forest, dark and lonely me,
whispering, "don't you leave"
Slowly beaconed by the changing of the leaves
The night is young and so is she

Beams of gold now turn to silver as the forest turns to night
It'll be alright, be alright, but it won't be alright tonight
Basket full of treasures; candy, peaches, pie, and pleasures
Well that's all lovely stuff but it's not enough

I will find you by moonlight
And you will try to hide

Tell me all your fears, dear, I can guess what they're all about
I whisper in your ear with an onion grin and a whiskered snout
The colour that's in your hair is on your lips it's in the trees
It's in my heart, it's on my tongue, it's everything I see

I will find you by moonlight
And you will try to hide

Now that I've found you, I'll never let you go
Don't you know by which the bonds we're held are eternal
And it brings me great pain to hear you scream for escape
One more peep from you and it'll be your last peep

You've run from me for the last time...

Suckin' on cherry fingers, lovely lady, tasty lingers
Chewin' on candy kisses, don't be shy you know it's just us
I pour the moon into a cup, you suck it down and I'll lick it up
Play yahtzee with your eyes, snake eyes almost every single time
I'll eat your family tree: Mommy, Daddy, Doggie, Granny
I dug a grave for thee then hid it deep inside my belly

I will find you by moonlight
And you will try to hide
Track Name: Dead or Alive (For Now)
You think I won’t find eyes at the top of the hill.
You dare me, but it scares me. You think I won’t but I know I will.

Just like the fortune teller’s dream
It’s cold and cruel and dark and mean
And when the bones get up and walk
It’s just exactly as it seems
Their names are all etched out in stone
You’re full of fright and not alone
And when the sheets get up and dance
They’ll see their song they’ll sing their moan

You think I won’t find eyes at the top of the hill.
You dare me, but it scares me. You think I won’t but I know I will.

And the heart that beat now ceases
And the dead that sleep no longer rest
You’re only dead or alive for now

In the earthen hole where lives the beast
She waits with patience for the feast
The mountains guts give out a growl
Your fear of frost is now the least
DON’T KILL ME!
Wicked little willow in the West bank reaches
Winkling fingers thirsty leaches
Riding on a toad boat, I scream fear float
Slimy little cat tales, gnawing Creatures
High above the hills in the mountain air
Sun and Moon and Stars, Beware!
Beaconed through the blackness of the misty veil
An open invitation to his deadly lair

You think I won’t find eyes at the top of the hill.
You dare me, but it scares me. You think I won’t but I know I will.

And the heart that beat now ceases
And the dead that sleep no longer rest
You’re only dead or alive for now
Track Name: The Good Doctor
Marvelous gray
Marvelous grave
Marvelous graveyard has all I need
I need:
Marvelous flesh
Marvelous bone
Marvelous body bits
For which to make a whole

From his own image God made a monster
Called it a Man and it was good
Well I’m just a man and just as I can play Doctor
I can play God and now I’ll make a monster

From this marvelous earth
Gives marvelous birth
To a cacophony of coffin-covered corpses it’s marvelous
So, hand me the hammer let’s see what’s inside
A forensic frenzy, a safari through your insides
I’m here to find the best of the best of the best
This will do, that will never do, no no! yes yes yes!

From his own image, God made a monster
Called it a Man, and it was good
Well I’m just a man and just as I can play Doctor
I can play God and now I’ll make a monster

Kill the sun and wait for dark
Pull the switch and make a spark
Thunder growling in the night
Laughing life in lightning light
And ridicule from everyone
Say I’m stupid say I’m dumb

Me don’t think so
Me don’t think so
Me don’t think so
Don’t think so
Me don’t think so
Me don’t think so
Me don’t think so
Don’t think so

Fear is a cross you hang upon your head
Time is the cost you pay until the day you’re dead

Henry Idle he was suicidal,
But his lower brain was fucking right as rain
And Dr. Thomas Gratt was great and big and fat,
But he had bones of iron underneath all that
Mary Suzie Ann had hands just like a man
And feet just like a man I think she was a man
Johnny shiver fermented his liver,
But his heart beat much faster than Billy the Bastard

Snuff the light
Enter night
Lightning strike
It’s a frightening light
(repeat)

I know I’ll make this monster from you
And I know I’ll make this monster from me
I know I’ll make this monster for you
And I know I’ll make this monster for me
(repeat)
Track Name: From Myth to Moon
Hear the telling of the end that came too soon
They found their future on the surface of the moon
If things do not end, then we’ll all be sent as well

Visions possess my dreams, we must flee
This place is telling us to leave
Our new home is far beyond you and me
On the moon, when the moon is on the sea

Three ships, and all that they can hold
Only the strong on this rig, only the big and bold
What’s beyond is better than what’s behind
The land would crush us and wrap us in the cold

No one loves you like a mother
And no one loves you like a child
But when one betrays the other
Abandoned, you must face the wild

They disappeared, and so did the ones behind
You can run, you can fight, or you can die
What more is a myth if not a warning of what might be
The earth rejects us and the survivors she will eat

No one loves you like a mother
And no one loves you like a child
But when one betrays the other
Abandoned, you must face the wild

Hear the telling of the end that came too soon,
We see our future on the surface of the moon
If things do not end then we’ll all be sent as well

Earth breaker
You take what you want and you leave with your life
Earth shaker
From her she’ll make you then gladly she’ll break you down
Track Name: You Ain't My Baby No More
You ain’t my baby no more since you walked out that door
Painted me blue and now I’m crying for you.
Baby, boo-hoo-hoo-hoo, baby, I miss you

The moment we met I fell
You knocked on my heart and rang my bell
Then suddenly things changed you left me standing in the rain
Now I’m cryin’ cause I’ll never see you again

You ain’t my baby no more since you walked out that door
Painted me blue and now I’m crying for you.
Baby, boo-hoo-hoo-hoo, baby, I miss you

Whadja do?
I grabbed my gun!

And the moment I shot, you fell
I lopped off your head and sent you to Hell
Now they all call me deranged but I’m still standing in the rain
And now I’m cryin’ cause I’ll never see you again

Darling,

The moment we met, I fell. I just wanted you to understand, and hold my hand.  Because when you did, you also held my heart.  
But from the start to the end, it was all pretend.  
You always said that I held the key to your heart.  But, baby, you changed the locks years ago.  
And now that you've made your choice, I have to live with it.  Since you cannot.
But I want you to know that I'll always love your spirit, and now, it’s free.

You ain’t my baby no more since you walked out that door
I painted you red and now I’m crying - you’re dead
And I force-fed you acid then sent you to bed
And I’ll never see you again
No I’ll never see you again
No I’ll never see you again
No I’ll never see you again
Track Name: Fancy Dancing
Decaying vines, a hidden path, I’m trudging on
Hide your fear
Miraculous I don’t succumb, I trudge along
Hide your fear
The air is thick I’m getting sick the thorns and ivy - whoa is me
I’m running out, and stumbling in, a boiling pot of witchery 
Out of the deep two eyes I meet, a blinding light of emerald green
Well who is she?  Now whoa is me, now now now...
Who are you?
“A friendly kind of friend”
Who are you? 
“Well only slightly deadly”
Who are you? 
“A deadly kind of friend”
Who are you?

A homely foyer, miniature mantle, ugly things
Hide your fear
The smelly dish is bubbling over with stinky things
Hide your fear
The air is thick I’m getting sick the mold and rotting - whoa is me
I’m freaking out, and peering in, a boiling pot of witchery 
Out of the pot of puke and snot now what else could be there inside,
I want to hide, now what’s inside?  Now now now...

“Cat’s claw and an ass’s jaw
A piglets hoof and monkey paw
Drown the rat and eat it raw
Maggots and worms, forget what you saw”

(Chorus)
She had me cursed it was too late
She knew me cursed she knew my fate
I begged, eyes wide, what did you see?
And with a smile she said to me:
“I saw you dancing
I saw you dancing fancy
I saw you dancing
I saw you dancing fancy”

Decaying vines, a hidden path, I’m trudging on
Hide your fear
Miraculous I don’t succumb I trudge along
Hide your fear
The air is thick I’m getting sick the mold and rotting - whoa is me
I’m freaking out, and peering in, a boiling pot of witchery 
Out of the deep two eyes I meet, a man is dangling from a tree
Well who is he?  Now whoa is me, now now now,
Who is he?
“A most familiar fellow”
Who is he?
“Now swinging with the willows”
Who is he?
“Upon his deadly gallows”
Who is he?
That man looks just like me!
That man looks just like me!
That man is dancing fancy!
I see me dancing fancy! 

(Chorus)
She had me cursed it was too late
She knew me cursed she knew my fate
I begged, eyes wide, what did you see?
And with a smile she said to me:
“I saw you dancing
I saw you dancing fancy
I saw you dancing
And now you’re dancing fancy”
Track Name: The Zoo of No Return
The structure was secured by animals
Steaming and staring with gears spinning wild
Pacing the grounds with the “plink! plink!” dialed
Metallic tooth chomp and a gorilla monkey romp
Inquiring slack jawed slider
Splitting and hissing “who’s next?”

The dove “coo-woo-ed” on the lamp post
With feathered paws a-pointing
To the coo-coo cat’s bell ring
Ah, rusted oars break against the cliff face
Hold back, we smell your trace

(Chorus)
Sound the bells, run like hell
The zoo has been set loose
Flee this town, you filthy frown
it’s the zoo of no return
The Zoo of No Return

The lion spat sparks with each step
Prowling and growling, “I’m King! Fear my wrath!
It’s your friend the Jagarnath!”
Now cry to the sticky black wind
Hold tight to the shakey breaky earth
For the night has eyes but hears not well
The sound of a lifeless shell

(Chorus)
Sound the bells, run like hell
The zoo has been set loose
Flee this town, you filthy frown
it’s the zoo of no return
The Zoo of No Return

What a spectical! A spectical! A spectical is this - they cried
Ooh ooh woo ooh oo....

(Chorus)
Sound the bells, run like hell
The zoo has been set loose
Flee this town, you filthy frown
it’s the zoo of no return
The Zoo of No Return
Track Name: Set Me Loose
Walls are what keep me here
These walls - I will disappoint these walls

This tomb will soon become my womb
I will dissect from these walls

I’ve been waiting for someone like you
Handsome and pretty and powerful too
You’ve been searching for someone like me
Now set me loose, my queen

Fear
Is what kept me here
But you my dear
You will get me out of here

A tap on my shoulder
A whisper in my ear
A breeze through the key hole
“I’m hidden, but here”
Laid to rest but not to death
It awakens with a breath
Vicious and hungry
“I’ve missed you”
“I’m here”

Queen, this world is yours and mine
See what I mean?
Grinful Satisfaction, guaranteed

I’ve been waiting for someone like you
Handsome and pretty and powerful too
You’ve been searching for someone like me
Now set me loose, my queen
Track Name: The Train Song
Ten thousand million miles away from nowhere going OH YEAH!
Pack your bags we’re leaving going on a train, don’t know where!
Jugga Jugga, toot toot toot, Jugga Jugga, toot toot.
Conductor says, “All aboard!” Better get your can on board!

The dining cars are full, the coal is black, the wheels are turning
Pocket watch, a neck of pearls, it’s a goldmine man and then some!
China please, and tea for three, just give your cash and bags to me
Reach for the sky you worthless plebes
We got ourselves a robbery

Boom boom bam,
Kick Slap Slam
Kick Crack Cram
KILL THE CONDUCTOR

Boom boom blast
Kick smack smash
Take em out back and we’re kickin their ass!

(Chorus)
Nowhere to go, nowhere to stay
You need a home to run away
Always going always leaving
Whistle blowin, engine steamin’

Dynamite Davie gave his soul to the Navy
With a tattoo on his arm and on the other a lady
Geronimo Joe gave a hell of a show
Cuttin’ fifty in the city with his mother’s machete
Sam-I-Is was one of twelve kids
Had no luck with the ladies but his pistol sure did
Harry the Hurricane finally went insane
Kissed a can and seven days rained

Boom boom bam,
Kick Slap Slam
Kick Crack Cram
KILL THE CONDUCTOR

Boom boom blast
Kick smack smash
Take em out back and we’re kickin their ass!

(Chorus)
Nowhere to go, nowhere to stay
You need a home to run away
Always going always leaving
Whistle blowin, engine steamin’
Track Name: Slow Down
Slow down, but keep on moving
There will never be enough time, so why try?
Slow on down, just keep on grooving
‘Cause love was meant to be felt
And flowers are meant to be *sniff* Ooh.

I can’t wait,
But still I’m always just a little bit behind
I feel great
But the more that I try the more I find I gotta slow down

Slow down, just keep on moving
There will never be enough time, so why, why, why, why...?
