"I am the master of the dark circus
All things change after dark
And nothing is what it seems"
(The Dr introduces The Siren)
"Let me introduce you to the siren
I found her in the southern ocean
And brought her here for your delight
She sings her song of seduction
And lures people to their deaths
And now she is trapped here on this bed
But to my dismay, she began to wither and fade
Through lonliness and desire,
When once her scales shimmered in the sunlight."
(The Dr introduces 'The Hairy Woman')
"On this mirror is the hairiest and wildest woman in the world
Stolen from the forest
She snarls and scratches
Amongst her hair nestles an egg
She protects it with her life
If you are lucky she may dance for you
Her golden hair flashing
Hungry and feral
She will whip you into a frenzy"
"All things change after dark
Fantasies are unleashed
Desires take hold
And our true selves emerge"
"I prepare myself ready for your eyes and your delight
My hair, my makeup, my stockings
I have read the future
I know the journey of destruction
That I will bear witness to
I invite you to join me on this journey"
Welcome to our world
More real than reality
Where we write our own mythology
Where we question your authority
