lyrics

Hail to the flame
To the light we reclaim
Jig along with the silhouette dancer
Come raise a toast.
Every ghoul, every ghost,
To the song of the Necromancer

At the Dark Carnival
At the Dark Carnival
Where the devil is a devil
But a devil that you know
You can put the parts together
But you’ll never make a whole
‘Til the dark, ‘til the dark
‘Til the dark carnival

Rats in the dungeon
Rats in the dungeon
Rats in the dungeon, ratting the ground
Bats in the belfry
Bats in the belfry
Bats in the belfry, batting around

What shall we say,
Come the hour, come the day,
When the Saints and the Angels come calling?
With a knock on the door
Is there room for some more?
For the Gods and the heavens are falling!

To the Dark Carnival
To the Dark Carnival
Where the Devil is a devil
But a devil that you know
You can put the parts together
But you’ll never make a whole
‘Til the dark, ‘til the dark
‘Til the dark carnival
‘Til the dark, ‘til the dark, dark carnival

You can put the parts together
But you’ll never make a whole
We are not to be commanded
We are not in your control
You can look around forever
But you’ll never find a soul
Only dark,
Only dark,
Only dark carnival
Only dark,
Only dark, dark carnival
Dark carnival
Only dark carnival
Where the Devil is a devil
But a devil that you know
You can put the parts together
But you’ll never make a whole
‘Til the dark, ‘til the dark
‘Til the dark carnival
‘Til the dark, ‘til the dark
‘Til the dark carnival
‘Til the dark, ‘til the dark, dark, dark carnival

To the Dark Carnival!
To the Dark!
To the Dark!
To the Dark Carnival!
