about

A sequel to On a Date With Manuela. The unnamed deformed twin revenges himself on his brother, who had murdered the only love of his life, the ghost Manuela.

He leaves the farm and is picked up by a truck driver named Annie who drives a rig she calls The Black Plague. She is nice to him despite his deformities, and even names him, Ghoulsby. When he tells the full story, including the murdered Manuela and his brother, Annie is disturbed and sells Ghoulsby to a rundown circus.

The owner is a cruel man who forces Ghoulsby into labor his deformed body is ill-equipped to handle. At night, he is the big star of the show. He is placed on a wooden platform and forced to eat all sorts of live animals and parts of animals.

With the help of a deaf and dumb tightrope walker, Ghoulsby plans his escape.

Track Name: Annie's Black Plague
Come in from the storm
Be quick, close the door
This truck's gonna soar
Don't worry no more

It's the Black Plague, It's the Black Death

Where will we go? Wherever they don't
What will we take? Nothing but ourselves

The name's Big Annie
I'm from Texarkanny
I ride across the country
You're welcome to join me

It's the Black Plague, It's the Black Death

Where will we go? Wherever they don't
What will we take? Nothing but ourselves

You told Annie your story
It's a bit too gory
When you wake in the morning
The circus will be leaving
Track Name: True Enough
All that forsake all that is new
Take on the fathers that forget their kin
That's true enough to say

Look on the darkside
you've felt it the whole time,
look on that sun with dismay
Chain up your heart right,
it's chained up the whole time,
it's chained up always

All that pretend not to see the freak
forgo themselves and forget the meek
That's true enough to say

Look on the darkside

All that believe in happiness
will come to conclude it doesn't exist
That's true enough to say
Track Name: Don't Wake the Horses
Go and clean the tiger shit
Go and feed them swept cigarettes
Go and bath the elephants
Don't waste, don't waste

Don't wake the horses
They need to rest their voices tonight

Go eat cotton candy
Go scrape the gum from the seats
You'll be paid with a loving family
Don't dream, don't dream

Don't wake the horses
They need to rest their voices tonight

All the time you've got to live
All the love you'd love to have
Track Name: Help the Strange Child
All of the violence
escapes to the moon
with you and I

All the diamonds
from this tiara shine
for you and I

We'll help the strange child

All the miles
between the good and the bad
shrink for us

We'll help the strange child
Track Name: Love's Not For Everyone
Where oh where are you from?
Out in the darkness
It's time to play in the light
I've never wanted it
What else could you want?
I'd settle for love

Love's Not For Everyone

Snakes will sing from the grass
I'll be your guardian
Glass will shine from the stands
But none will cut you
What more could you ask?
Poor little Ghoulsby

Love's Not For Everyone
