Welcome to the lower berth,
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

We are thieves, Jamie. We steal something more precious than life; if only it were as simple as killing those who fall into our trap! Each part of the show is designed to part the tricks with the most precious thing they have: the human soul, Jamie. We steal them by the dozen. It began a long time ago: Kurt Pilo Senior established the circus as a farm for human souls, and that is what it remains...
