"Carnival Kids" as written by David Craig, Barry Hyde, David Hyde and Ross Millard....
I can't say what they're gonna do
Got your cards marked
And they're coming for you
Gonna kneel down

Its another lonely winters day December's coming soon
Gonna need your coat
Gonna cut your throat
Gonna lay you down (gonna lay you down gonna lay you down)
Gonna waste all of your time (gonna lay you down gonna lay you down)

You're old enough to know better (ooh ooh ooh)
Don't burn by the fire what goes on inside
When everything is made better (ooh ooh ooh)
The carnival kids will settle they're laid back in style

I can't say what they're gonna do
Take you to a field in the car boot
Gonna let you go (down down down)
Join a freak show

Gonna cut your hair
Gonna loose your mind playing truth or dare
Gonna lay you down (gonna lay you down gonna lay you down)
Gonna waste all of your time (gonna lay you down gonna lay you down)

You're old enough to know better (ooh ooh ooh)
Don't burn by the fire what goes on inside
When everything is made better (ooh ooh ooh)
The carnival kids will settle they're laid back in style

You should be old enough
You should be old enough
You should be

    General CommentIt's such a shot of instant pop crack isn't it? Too perfect, even more so in concert. Such nice lads too~

    General CommentDamn. I don't think I've heard a better post-pop-punk song in my entire lifetime. This song is perfection.
