Track Name: Merciless Circus
Hey diddle diddle diddle
Cat's got a fiddle fiddle
Everything's wrong and you're in the middle middle

Humpty Dumpty is up on his wall
And you're at the bottom hoping that he falls

There's a little girl and she's wearing a hood
And you're in the forest and up to no good

Round and round and round we go
Where we stop nobody knows
Round and round and round we go
If we fall, look out below

It's a mericiless circus
And everybody wants to play

There was an old lady who lived in a shoe
And you made her run away with the dish and the spoon

All the little pigs are stuck in the house
And you're running around like another blind mouse

You laughed at Jack when he broke his skull
cause you're just a wolf in a black sheep's wool
Track Name: Hey Jilly
There's a girl in Mississippi
And she's got me feeling trippy
She's a wild one, yeah
You'd say she's outta sight

Listening to Wildflower in my car
She asks me if I think we'll make it far
Hey Jilly, I think we're gonna be all right now

Hey Jilly
I think we're gonna be all right now
You know in the end
We're gonna win this fight
I got dreams and so do you
And you know we can make them come true
We've got each other on our side
There's not a whole lot we can't do

Jilly's such a good friend of mine
I wish I could be with her all of the time
But the world has a way of keeping us apart

I'm in one place, she's in another
But forever she's my lover
If we're separated, we're together in our hearts

Hey Jilly
I love you, yeah
Stand beside you, to the end

Hey Jilly
You better believe it
I couldn't ask for a better friend

It's been a while
Since I've seen you, yeah
But we've got a love
That'll see us through
Track Name: Don't Follow the Ghost
Out of the alley, you hear him moaning
Under the streetlight, you hear him groaning
Come to me he says
Come to me he says

Don't follow the ghost
The ghost will lead you astray
Don't follow the ghost
He'll break you with his chains
Don't follow the ghost
Ignore the sound of the bell
Don't follow the ghost
He'll drag you down to hell

In deepest darkness, you see a figure
So cold and heartless, you hear him whisper

Look into your heart, you'll see him lurking
When you are weakest, you'll feel him working
Track Name: No Reason
Winter comes to kill with cold
Secret tales are left untold
Everyone must pay their toll
When the hand of doom rests on their soul
