Favorite Quote:
You cut up a thing that's alive and beautiful to find out how it's alive and why it's beautiful, and before you know it, it's neither of those things, and you're standing there with blood on your face and tears in your sight and only the terrible ache of guilt to show for it.”
lgs Clive Barker quote


Welcome to the circus! The Circus in the Sky!
The one that every family should come around and try!
Tell me little girl, have you ever wished to fly?
Well, you can! You can, At the Circus in the Sky!

Tell me little girl, Do you really want to play?
Do you want to be a part of my voluptuous fillet?
Maybe I can add you to my slaughterhouse buffet,
To finally satiate what my hungry viewers crave.

Welcome to the circus! The Circus in the Sky!
The one that every fool never seems to even try!
Tell me little girl, have you ever wished to die?
See? You can! You can, at the Circus in the Sky!

Tell me little girl, did you even feel the pain?
You lost a little blood, but it didn’t leave a stain!
You think you left a mess? It’ll wash away with rain!
You are equal to us all, and devoured just the same.

Welcome to the circus! The Circus in the Sky!
The place where everyone for murder bonafide!
Tell me little girl, want to assist in suicide?
Well, you can! You can, at the Circus in the Sky!

Silly little girl, you can’t just leave the same.
Your loss of heart and lungs are solely yours to blame.
You butcher yourself for love, and without a hint of shame!
Why, look how far you’ll go, for a minute or two of fame.

Welcome to the circus! The Circus in the Sky!
Where every little corner hides a very nice surprise!
Tell me little boy, have you ever really cried?
Well, you can! You can, At the Circus in the Sky!

Tell me little boy, have you ever been afraid?
Have you ever fallen into a cannibal’s embrace?
Did he dine on your flesh? Did you wish to be saved?
He still wants you to join him, and I suggest that you obey.

Welcome to the circus! The Circus in the Sky!
Once you see the show, you’ll never say goodbye!
Tell me little boy, do you wish to leave this life?
Well you can! You can, At the Circus in the Sky!

Tell me little boy, have you ever felt such joy?
Have you ever been a part of a puppet master’s toy?
Sure they’re made of corpses, but they really are quite coy!
I’m sure they would embrace such a scrumptious little boy!

Welcome to the circus! The Circus in the Sky!
Where the hotdogs are deflated and the water fountains dry!
Tell me little boy, will you ever say goodbye?
For we need another freak, and you seem like just the guy…

So will you join the circus? The Circus in the Sky?
The world where all your feats will make the vermin vie?
So tell me little boy, have you ever wished to fly?
For if the fall doesn’t kill you, you know you’ll be on high.
