painted on tears;

painted on smiles;

masked masks.

the cracked nuts on the surface,

dip in white chocolate;

marless candy painted faces.

and they all dance together,

they all sing together,

but don't know one another.

the glitter and razzle dazzle;

the spotlights are blinding,

can you really see them?

welcome to the carnival,

if you'd like, you can stay a little longer,

but it'll cost you.
