"Horror Show" as written by and Stephan/cadogan Jenkins....
Since I was a little kid
I tried to get out of my head
Trapped on the playground
I would stare at the sky
I didn't even know why
But daily life it took an evil shape
Some conform
And some try to escape
And those are the misfits that I've known
Like a sock in the eye
They feel it to the bone
It's a joke that we all know
We're the bait in a horror show
Yeah, we are all alone
In a horror show
Banish me and mine to outer space
I'd shoot there in a second
Just for the breathing space
I'd put the punks on the moon
For head-room
Mods rule the galaxy
That's the way I think things should be
The creep in you is the creep in me
When gravity presses down like a lie
We want wild sex
But we don't wanna die
Do you feel there's no where to go
We're the bait in a horror show
And we're all alone in a horror show
Yeah, we are all alone in a horror show
If I spoke in words of only hate
Tell me would you now, yeah
Could you relate
And I, I wish I met Lou Reed
Out on his darkened sea
'Cause I felt it when his blood would flow
It doesn't take a thousand years to know
That ship burned a long time ago
We're all alone in a horror show
We're all alone
We're on our own
In a horror show, yeah

    General CommentThis song is about growing up and watching everyone grow apart. Battling conformity or escapism, and plain just not knowing where to turn. I think the horror show refers to society and the media tearing kids apart and playing games with their emotions, for we are their bait. They want to isolate us and use us as consumers. Forget what society wants, go be your own person and everything will fall into its place. Rocking song!

    General CommentI think this is by far 3EB's best B-side! This song absolutely rocks! They should have saved it for an album cause nobody really knows the song.
