The Dark Carnival Is In Town
You Better Be Ready
Just Follow The Parade
Of Dancing Skeletons
Full Of Ghoulish Delights
Around Every Corner
Don't Tell Your Parents Your Here
They Will Soon Be Mourners

Welcome To The Lower Birth
The Greatest Show Unearthed
We Appear Without A Sound
The Darkest Show Around
We Will Leave You In A Daze
Madness, Murder, Dismay
We Will Disappear At Night
With Blood On The Concrete

I Will Be Your Ticket Taker
Come Inside It's A Dream
Enter The Fun House Of Mirrors
No One Can Hear You Scream
We Can Supply Anything
That Your Heart Desires
But The Consequences
Will Surely Be Dire

Welcome To The Lower Berth
The Greatest Show Unearthed
We Appear Without A Sound
The Darkest Show Around
We Will Leave You In A Daze
Madness, Murder, Dismay
We Will Disappear At Night
With Blood On The Concrete

Come Inside
For The Ride
Your Deepest Darkest
Of Fears

The Best Night
Of Your Life
You're Never Leaving
From Here

The Unknown
The Unseen
Is What You're Going
To Find

Witness This
Witness That
Until You Lose
Your Mind

Welcome To The Lower Birth
The Greatest Show Unearthed
We Appear Without A Sound
The Darkest Show Around
We Will Leave You In A Daze
Madness, Murder, Dismay
We Will Disappear At Night
With Blood On The Concrete

    General CommentUnearthed - Meaning in this case is Secretive in a way, which means this 'Great Show' Is a very /dark/ secretive /carnival/. OR it could mean 'dug up', DIgging up zombies? Perhaps?
    The next line 'Just follow the parade of dancing Skeletons' Is a much more happy feature, dancing and its a parade.
    I'm thinking it's a much more secretive parade, because if you go down to the chorus 'Welcome to the lower birth' Suggesting Rebels? Or Hell?
    "Full of ghoulish delights around every corner." Now it just seems more like a fun carnival or circus, 'Ghoulish delights' Treats candy, chocolate shaped like ghosts? So It's a Rebellious Secretive dark themed carnival. And so far it just looks like they want most kids/Teens/Adults, to have fun, most people would be walking around and not paying attention to the song anyways.
    'Don't tell your Parents your here, they will soon be mourners.'
    Scratch out adults. I'm going to go back up and scratch out my 'dug up' theory. It's most certainly secretive. 'they will soon be mourners' just trying to scare people in a fun way along with the beat of the song.
    The chorus....
    We already got the first line of the chorus and the second one.
    'We appear without a sound'
    They don't want more people to find out (Older people)
    "The Darkest show around' IT's a carnival, a dark themed show.
    'We will leave you in a daze' - THis is going to be the best show you've ever seen/been to.
    'Madness, Murder,Dismay." (Honest I had to think a bit about this one) ITs going right back to the theme of the carnival.
    'We will dissapear at night." -Don't miss the show!!!
    'With blood on the concrete."- The Theme of the show
    really the rest of the song is just like it it keeps going back to the theme of the carnival. IT's a really addicting song to!

    General CommentLower birth does make sence, if your part af the lower birth, you're lower class. It's like being of a noble birth. It's a socail class.
    But this song is awesome. It really sets the scence for the rest of the album. It give you a sence of what your in for. Listening to this album is like going on a trip to Hell, and shaking hands with the Devil.

    General CommentThe most logical word for that phrase, zombie_scene and HearMeWhisper is 'berth'. Look it up, I'm too lazy. =]

    General CommentI think this song is pretty morbid in a very addicting way. I can't get it out of my head.

    Song MeaningI'm of the opinion that this song is exactly what it claims to be, a traveling circus of murders who lure children in with the promise of a good time if they don't tell anyone where they're going that in reality is a twisted horror/torture show staring the guests.
