Track Name: The Greatest Show Unearthed
THE GREATEST SHOW UNEARTHED

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 you’re 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 funhouse 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 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

Come inside
For the ride
Your deepest darkest fears

The best night
Of your life
You’re never leaving here

The unknown
The unseen
Is what you’re gonna 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

~Lyrics By Curtis Rx
Track Name: Buried Alive
BURIED ALIVE

I forever dream within a dream
Of a certain city in the sea
As I walk the valley of unrest
Behind this mask of crimson death

I long for a loss of breath
And a most dire predicament
Murders in the rue morgue
Silence and shadow’s what I adore

I can’t explain Just how it feels
The thought of my premature burial
Inside this oblong box I lie
With the hopes I’ll be buried alive

The oval portrait upon the wall
Will someday cause this house to fall
The power of words left unsaid
As I join the spirits of the dead

I can’t explain Just how it feels
The thought of my premature burial
Inside this oblong box I lie
With the hopes I’ll be buried alive

Well, I’m the man who’s used up
Washed up
Bricked up

Descent into maelstrom
Bedlam
Redrum

Bet the devil my head
Misled
Bloodshed

Heart under the floorboards
Beats for
Lenore
Nevermore

I can’t explain Just how it feels
The thought of my premature burial
Inside this oblong box I lie
With the hopes I’ll be buried alive

~Lyrics By Curtis Rx
Track Name: Aim For The Head
AIM FOR THE HEAD

Can I pose a question
How do you kill what is dead
I just shoot from the hip
And aim for the head

He used to be your friend
That was another life
With a single bullet
We’re gonna blow his mind

With a loaded gun
And a steady hand
We just might live through this
Aim for the head
If you kill the brain
Then you kill the ghoul
And it’s motor functions
Aim for the head

Nail up all the windows
They’ve come to settle a score
Make sure no chamber is bare
They’re right outside the door

This is a test of your strength
And your will to survive
If you give up now
They’re gonna eat you alive

With a loaded gun
And a steady hand
We just might live through this
Aim for the head
If you kill the brain
Then you kill the ghoul
And it’s motor functions
Aim for the head

Listen to me
Listen to me
Listen to me
Save yourself

There is no more
There Is no more
There Is no more
Room in hell

I will help you
I will help you
I will help you
Understand

Come with me now
Come with me now
Come with me now
Take my hand

We can make it
We can make it
We can make it
Through this

With a loaded gun
And a steady hand
We just might live through this
Aim for the head
If you kill the brain
Then you kill the ghoul
And it’s motor functions
Aim for the head

Is this the end of the world
Or just the start of the fight
You better heed my warning
And watch out for their bite

They have a taste for your flesh
And for your blood they will crave
They’re coming for us now
From beyond the grave

~Lyrics By Curtis Rx
Track Name: Six Foot Deep
SIX FOOT DEEP

I bury the dead yeah
Secret place in my head
Shovel underneath my bed
Caught with my hands red

Midnight is creeping in
My tightrope is wearing thin
Watching the devil grin
Darkness, it waits within

All I’ve ever known
Is the unknown
In my haunted home
With the rattling bones
In my heart of stone
Where the ghosts roam
When the walls bleed
I will bury you deep
I will bury you deep
Six foot deep
Six foot

Walk to the boneyard
Wind is blowing so hard
Carrying the death card
Mind is broken into shards

In this place that I despise
Something therein evil lies
Planning out my grim demise
Someday we all shall die

All I’ve ever known
Is the unknown
In my haunted home
With the rattling bones
In my heart of stone
Where the ghosts roam
When the walls bleed
I will bury you deep
I will bury you deep
Six foot deep
Six foot

~Lyrics By Curtis Rx
Track Name: A Gorey Demise
A GOREY DEMISE

A is for Amber
Who drowned in a pool

Who was eaten by ghouls

With disease of the brain

Derailed on a train
E is for Erik
Who was buried alive

Who was sealed in a tomb

One by one, we bite the dust
We kick the bucket and begin to rust
Give up the ghost when your number’s up
We all fall down
Ashes to ashes, bones to paste
You’ll wither away in your resting place
Eternity in a wooden case
We all fall down

I is for Isaac
Who lost his front brakes
J is for Johnny
Who was bitten by snakes

Who was shot in the head

Who bled and bled
M is for Marie
Who burned to a crisp

Who was pummled by fists
O is for Olivia
Who lived life too fast
P is for Pat
Who swallowed some glass

One by one, we bite the dust
We kick the bucket and begin to rust
Give up the ghost when your number’s up
We all fall down
Ashes to ashes, bones to paste
You’ll wither away in your resting place
Eternity in a wooden case
We all fall down

Q is for Quentin
Who took the wrong trail
R is for Reyna
Who rotted in jail
S is for Steve
Who was shot with a bow

Who froze in the snow

Who simply went

Insane

Track Name: Look To The Skies
LOOK TO THE SKIES

Look to the skies
Look to the skies
Look to the skies
Look to the skies

Something mysterious falls to the earth
Maybe a blessing, maybe a curse
At first we thought they meant us no harm
No sense of urgency, no cause for alarm
The brightest flash begins our darkest of days
Something sinister appears in the haze

We better face the facts
The plan’s been hatched
Duplicate the perfect match
Then body snatch
We better face the facts
The plan’s been hatched
Duplicate the perfect match
Then body snatch

Look to the skies
Look to the skies

In our sleep is when they enter our minds
Do their damage then they sever the lines
Overnight absorb our body and soul
With no emotion, no need for hope
The one flaw they underestimate
They can’t get us if we stay awake

We better face the facts
The plan’s been hatched
Duplicate the perfect match
Then body snatch
We better face the facts
The plan’s been hatched
Duplicate the perfect match
Then body snatch

Beyond the surface, the plan is more devious
So be on the lookout for carbon copies of us
Beyond the surface the plan is more devious
So be on the lookout for carbon copies of us

First you give up
And then you give in
First you give up
And then you give in
First you give up
And then you give in
First you give up
And then you give in
First you give up
And then you give in
First you give up
And then you give in
First you give up
And then you give in
First you give up
And then you give in

Track Name: How To Serve Man
HOW TO SERVE MAN

Ounce for ounce
Blood for blood
You get a taste and it’s never enough

Pound for pound
Eye for an eye
You get the thirst and it never runs dry

Piece by piece
Bite by bite
Relish the flavor and swallow your plight

Inch by inch
Slice by slice
Dress your guest and season with vice

Let me clarify before we begin
Am I getting under your skin
Your disposition seems a trifle bland
It’s time you learned how to serve man

Pinch by pinch
Dash by dash
Braise the passe and devour the past

Day by day
Night by night
Prepare the course and savor the spice

Let me clarify before we begin
Am I getting under your skin
Your disposition seems a trifle bland
It’s time you learned how to serve man

Let me clarify before we begin
Am I getting under your skin
Your disposition seems a trifle bland
It’s time you learned how to serve man

~Lyrics By Curtis Rx
Track Name: Bound And Gagged
BOUND AND GAGGED

Gotta run away
Try to get away
Gotta run away
Try to get away

If you ever want to see your daughter again
And every little thing goes according to plan
Don’t do anything that you think you’ll regret
Or you’ll have to check the mail for your daughter’s head

I’m keeping her bound and gagged
Her clothes soaked in gasoline
Hands tied behind her back
Where no one can hear her

Gotta run away
Try to get away
Gotta run away
Try to get away

Listen up now, I won’t repeat myself
This is how everything is gonna go down
When you make the drop, you better be by yourself
It could be detrimental to your daughter’s health

I’m keeping her bound and gagged
Her clothes soaked in gasoline
Hands tied behind her back
Where no one can hear her

Scream
Scream

You can run, but you can’t hide
You can run, but you can’t hide from me

I’m keeping her bound and gagged
Her clothes soaked in gasoline
Hands tied behind her back
Where no one can hear her

Scream
Scream

~Lyric By Curtis Rx
Track Name: The Meek Shall Inherit The Earth
THE MEEK SHALL INHERIT THE EARTH

Our story starts so very, very deep underground
Unaware of the legions they are building down there
Then comes the sound, a shrill signal loud enough to drown
The time has come, Mother Nature’s now holding the gun

Well once you enter the hive
You’ll never make it out alive
It’s been devised
So no human being will Survive
Could it be worse
I think they’ve acquired a thirst
We claimed it first
Now the meek shall inherit the earth

Kill one and two more will take it’s place
Withdraw, the city’s under martial law
A nameless horror, like nothing we’ve encountered before
The time has come for mankind to be undone

They’re coming up
You’re going down
They’re coming up
You’re going down

Well once you enter the hive
You’ll never make it out alive
It’s been devised
So no human being will Survive
Could it be worse
I think they’ve acquired a thirst
We claimed it first
Now the meek shall inherit the earth

Welcome to annihilation
Devastation across the nation
Welcome to eternal damnation
A revelation void of salvation
Welcome to extermination
Abomination through mutation
Welcome to the aberration
Transformation then liberation

They’re coming up
You’re going down
They’re coming up
You’re going down

Well once you enter the hive
You’ll never make it out alive
It’s been devised
So no human being will Survive
Could it be worse
I think they’ve acquired a thirst
We claimed it first
Now the meek shall inherit the earth

~Lyrics By Curtis Rx
Track Name: Corpse In My Bed
A CORPSE IN MY BED

Is it wrong to have a corpse in my bed
I don’t think so, even if she is dead
Is it disturbing, is it a crime
She’s been expired for quite some time

Couldn’t let her repose underground
A feast for worms inside her burial mound
Consecrated by the powers above
We fit like a severed hand in glove

My only complaint’s the perfume she wears
A mix of rancid milk and moldy pears
I’m just scared, don’t want to be alone
Even if she’s just skin and bone

Her skin is dry and body full of dust
One day I’m afraid she just might combust
I could never think of leaving her side
Even though it’s been years since she died

My only complaint’s the perfume she wears
A mix of rancid milk and moldy pears
I’m just scared, don’t want to be alone
Even if she’s just skin and bone

Let me reiterate what has been said
Is it really that wrong to have a corpse in my bed
I’m just scared, don’t want to be alone
Even if she’s just skin and bone

~Lyrics By Curtis Rx
Track Name: Such Horrible Things
SUCH HORRIBLE THINGS

Sit back now
Let me tell you a tale
Where justice does not prevail

About an Ill-fated life
So very full of strife
Where two wrongs do not make a right

So

When I was born
I did surely scorn
My proud parent’s name
Then their lives went down the drain
Drove them insane
My birth was a curse
I bit the nurse
Oh, but I love the worst

I deserve to be slowly submersed
Dried out then laid in a hearse

When I was two
I poured super glue
Into my fathers hair
As he sat unaware
In his arm chair
Much to his dismay
Had to cut it all away
Oh, but it felt great

I deserve to be cut and filleted
Then tossed about in disarray
Until the pieces melt away

I am not a bad man
Even though I do bad things
Very bad things
Such horrible things
But it’s not quite what it seems
*Not quite what he seems*
Not quite what I seem

Ah, hell
It’s exactly what it seems

When I was four
I’d wait by the door
With a knife in my hand
And a most devious plan
It would be quite grand
As the mail fell through the slot
The sharp edge he got
Oh, but I love the thought

I deserve to be tied in a knot
Broken bones and blood clots

When I was six
I used to trick
The next door neighbors son
In the woods we would run
Time for fun
Hide and seek has a cost
He would be forever lost
Oh, but I love to scoff

I deserve to have my head lopped off
Hidden and covered in moss
Until this memory’s forgot

I am not a bad man
Even though I do bad things
Very bad things
Such horrible things
But it’s not quite what it seems
*Not quite what he seems*
Not quite what I seem

Ah, hell
It’s exactly what it seems

When I was eight
I used to hate
The color of my house
So as quite as a mouse
I burned it down
To the ground
When no one was around
Oh, but I love the sound

I deserve to be quickly put down
Rotting six feet underground

When I was ten
I used to pretend
To drown in the sea
‘Till they’d come to rescue me
Then precede
To laugh in their face
Such a disgrace
Oh, but I love the taste

I deserve to have my brains displaced
All over the fireplace
Until this life has been erased

I am not a bad man
Even though I do bad things
Very bad things
Such horrible things
But it’s not quite what it seems
*Not quite what he seems*
Not quite what I seem

Ah, hell
It’s exactly what it seems

When I was twelve
I used to delve
Into evil schemes
Just to elicit screams
Boost my self esteem
Pushed my sister down a well
She just fell
Oh, but I love to dwell

I deserve to roast deep down in hell
Where no one can hear me yell

When I was fourteen
Nothing much happened

Well, there was that one time

I am not a bad man
Even though I do bad things
Very bad things
Such horrible things
But it’s not quite what it seems
*Not quite what he seems*
Not quite what I seem

Ah, hell
It’s exactly what it seems

When I was sixteen
Life was frightening
My brother was quite dull
So with laughter in my skull
Pushed him in a hole
Then buried him alive
He barely survived
Oh, but I love the cries

I deserve to be battered and fried
In an electric chair that’s set on high

Now that I’m eighteen
I still hate things
From this padded cell I call my home
No friends, no phone
No life to call my own
Here I will lie
Until the very day I die
Until my blood begins to dry
And I return to the darkness from whence I came

So

I am not a bad man
Even though I do bad things
Very bad things
Such horrible things
But it’s not quite what it seems
Not quite what I seem

Ah, hell
I’m exactly what I seem
