Crack, crack, let's go again
Stricken by the ease of loneliness
Get tired of it all, then end
On a bittersweet note
Of pain and sorrow
And one hell of a carnival ride.
"These things are safe, right?"
Though it's not always what it seems
Sometimes you have to trust your eyes
When they scream and say "No!"
Maybe they're just curiously misconceived
By the teeth looming large
On your sweet pale throat?
Or maybe there's a reason for that
Ringing horror and laugh.
The hysterical skeleton is running
'Round and 'round in circles again.
Oh, just break his back
Snap the spine and sever the chords
As like killing a headless chicken
Isn't that all that need be done
For a merciful duty to God?
Ah, just let it be.
Soon enough, this ride is ending anyway
And the cold glare of the toothless beast
Won't mean a thing to any dead man here.
Skeletons get all the damn luck, don't they?
