Track Name: Don't Take The Mark! [from Act I]
Don't Take the Mark

"The Beast is here!
Ready to take his people down!
You may be one!
So wise up and look around!"

Daddy says these wicked days are numbered.
Daddy says the Snake is in the marketplace.
Daddy says this world has hit the bottom.
Daddy says prepare for Armageddon.
And Daddy he screams, screams so loud:
"Don't take the mark!"

"The Beast is here!
Ready to place his hand on you!
So turn around!
Repent and give The Lord his due!

Daddy says his baby boy is evil.
Daddy says his baby boy was born that way.
Daddy says the goats are separated.
Daddy says the molten lake is ready.
And Daddy he screams, screams so loud:
"Don't take the mark!"
Track Name: The Tent Show [from Act I]
It's high time to pack it up and hit another town.
And it's a crime how easily I fleece another clown.
I gotta go. The gospel and the money here's run dry.
I'm Brother Joe. I always make a killing before I fly.

Chorus:
Hey hey, the Pentecostal with the hand of gold.
Hey hey, the Pentecostal with the big tent show. Yeah.
People can I get a witness!
I'm making it my business.

A con man, I always check the weather before I leave.
Sleight-of-hand, I got another spirit up my sleeve.

Chorus

Hey Sunshine, I make a cripple walk and blind men see.
So drop a dime and see if I can really set you free.

Chorus
Track Name: The God Carnival [from Act I]
Religion sucks, I said
He said, boy, you ain't givin'
Givin' sucks, i said
He said, boy, you ain't livin'
'Til you felt the cold rattlesnake skin
The big welcome-to-son
The god carnival

My own fear confuses
My own Six Flags over Jesus
