Carnival
lyrics by Daniel Flores and Gil SOTU
music by the Velveteen Band

Get all the freaks to the carnival!
It only costs a penny and maybe your soul.
Get all the freaks to the carnival!
It only costs a penny and maybe your soul.
Get all the freaks to the carnival!
It only costs a penny and maybe your soul.
Get all the freaks to the carnival!
It only costs a penny.
It only costs a penny.

A penny for your thoughts.
A nickel for your kiss.
Who would have thought life could be like this?
Like love. Like peace. Like we in this together.
Like the cut of your gib. The color of your feather.
Freaks are bonded like leather.
I could feel you from a distance.
Welcome to the carnival; you’re part of the resistance!
You can call this kismet, but please don’t resist this.
I’m a freak. You’re a freak. It’s good to admit it.
Let your freak flag fly!
Wave it up high!
Wanna get strange?
You don’t gotta lie.
You ain’t gotta hide.
Don’t be shy.
Come out and play!
We dancin’ in the rain.

Moonwalking on the sun.
Let’s have some fun.
Chase the white rabbit.
Run, Forrest, run!
Go and find Alice. Get the Mad Hatter.
The party’s full of weirdos, and it’s only getting phatter!
Gil SOTU: the king of this chatter.
Check it one, two, I’ve got the gift of the gabber.
You scream, I scream, we all scream Velveteen.
You scream, I scream, we all scream Velveteen.

Get all the freaks to the carnival!
It only costs a penny and maybe your soul.
Get all the freaks to the carnival!
It only costs a penny and maybe your soul.
Get all the freaks to the carnival!
It only costs a penny and maybe your soul.
Get all the freaks to the carnival!
It only costs a penny.
It only costs a penny.

Let’s go!

If you’re not a resident;.
shy or hesitant,
We’re not Donald Trump.
We welcome all aliens.
Silly homo sapiens,
to me you’re all radient.
Ladies and gentlemen,
we be the settlement –
a brave new world.
A people that’s free.
I’m a freak role model. Be like me.
Or be more you.
Bathe in your truth.
Been tight all your life; it’s time to get loose.

Get all the freaks to the carnival!
It only costs a penny and maybe your soul.
Get all the freaks to the carnival. Yeah!

Get all the freaks to the carnival!
It only costs a penny and maybe your soul.
Get all the freaks to the carnival!
It only costs a penny and maybe your soul.
Get all the freaks to the carnival!
It only costs a penny and maybe your soul.
Get all the freaks to the carnival!
It only costs a penny.
It only costs a penny.

Get all the freaks to the carnival!
It only costs a penny and maybe your soul.
Get all the freaks to the carnival!

Welcome… to the carnival!
