Onion Grin 04:09
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

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

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)

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

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

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”

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

Set Me Loose 03:34
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

Slow Down 03:34
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...?
