"Carnival Of Disgust" as written by and Stefan Weinerhall....
[Verse 1]
Behind the veil,
of destiny,
the path might turn in,
sudden twists of irony,
night turns to day,
dark turns to light,
and to beginning,
on the other side of rite.

[Verse 2]
Wielder of steel,
tier of ropes,
the hooded slayer,
without shame and without hope,
sentenced to death,
but slipped away,
to live the role of,
a hangman at display.

[Chorus]
Come and see the play of wicked irony,
join the crowd of hunger
for the joy of the carnival of disgust.

[Verse 3]
Lonely he walks,
outcast of shame,
fearful and spat on,
yet respected for his name,
marked by the blade,
to be known at sight,
as a walking dead man,
for a crime that's black as night.

[Chorus]
Come and see the play of wicked irony,
join the crowd of hunger
for the joy of the carnival of disgust.

[Chorus]
Come and see the play of wicked irony,
join the crowd of hunger
for the joy of the carnival of disgust.

    General CommentI'm surprised this has no comments, but I just wanted to add how perfect the song is. It's about the role of somebody whose forced occupation is to kill, not only deserving criminals but innocent children (see music video). It explores the hopelessness of the situation, and how barbaric and cruel a crowd can become - hence, "carnival of disgust." They make a spectacle of a horror, jeering and yelling and waiting for the murder to happen. Only the person forced to commit the crime sees the horrors, the mistake.

    The lyrics aren't quite enough here to tell the story. You need to see the video...it's really well done, and fits perfectly with the mood of the music and lyrics. Plus, the lead singer is absolutely amazing.
