Sickly Sweet Shivers



I walk the bustling carnival streets

The smell of sugar in the air

Calliope music blaring loudly

As the night casts deepened shadows


The smell of sugar in the air

It all turns sickly sweet, sticky

As the night casts deepened shadows

Calling me to oddities and curiosities


It all turns sickly sweet, sticky

Carousel horses with sinister faces

Calling me to oddities and curiosities

Balloons pop and children scream


Carousel horses with sinister faces

Sending shivers down my spine

Balloons pop and children scream

In the distance a clown cackles


Sending shivers down my spine

I walk the bustling carnival streets

In the distance a clown cackles

Calliope music blaring loudly
