"Tiny Monsters" as written by and Carina Dianne Round Maynard James Keenan....
Day gives way to night
On the storefront mannequins
The audience with Mona Lisa grins
Moonlight builds emotion
As the players scuffle in
Pull the curtain back and let the show begin

Moon of mischief
Under low light discipline
Here the tiny monsters hunt for harlequins

Silent patience view the drama
Under low light discipline
Here the tiny monsters hunt for harlequins

Moon of mischief
We kill, be killed or run
To be or not, to be the only one

    General CommentI believe this is referencing prostitution. Night falls, the things of day are mute and silenced. With stupid identical grins pretending the things of night don't happen.

    The players are the people that come out at night.

    Harlequin originally meant demon or devil spawn in French but later meant more of a clown or buffoon.

    Neither a tiny monster or clown demon are extremely dangerous but can be because they're still a monster and a demon.

    The tiny monsters are young prostitutes, the Harlequins are the johns.

    The moon is a symbol of the feminine. Moon of mischief means girls misbehaving.

    The men are silent patrons as what they do is secret. Harlequins wear masks. These men want their identity hidden.

    The last lines remind that the streets are dangerous and for those that live there it's a very real danger and about survival.

    Or it could mean something entirely different.
