1. JudasStein (5:21)
JudasStein

Unleash the creature

I am the dark
A thing most feared that has torn asunder
The laws of nature in my time

Electric spark
Not cunt-born but graveyard plunder
Spare parts of traitors and their cruelest kind

I am a crime
Blame me JudasStein

I'm hating on my maker
A judgment day day-breaker
Unnamed, they call me undivine
Father made me
JudasStein

A composite freak
Mankind's greatest bastard ashtray
Hanging by my heart with my guts chewed out
Priesthoods shout: "Take him away!"

"Take him away!"

I am the path
Trodden in the irons, kissed in betrayal
A monstrous cog turned by a higher will

I bear these scars
The suicide's noose, the hate of aeons
Stitched to evil for the victim on the hill

I'm hating on my maker
A judgment day day-breaker
Unnamed, they call me undivine
Father save me
JudasStein

JudasStein

An Adam of fool's labour
Shut out from Paradise
Without an Eve
A second me, oh God!
Bereft of hope for all eternity…

Help me!

I greet the night with open arms
To strangulate, to wring its charms
Squeezing the spite from out its veins

I'm a bluebeard, bloodbeast, bugafuckingboo
Scapegoat for the sins you'll all do
A purse of thirty pieces sewn
Together in a rage

I won't welcome pity, only love
Acceptance is a virtue of those high above
Now the need to hurt you fits me like a glove
Upon an obscene hand

A composite freak
Mankind's greatest bastard ashtray
Hanging by my heart with my guts chewed out
Priesthoods shout: "Take him away!"

I'm hating on my maker
A judgment day day-breaker
Unnamed, they call me undivine
Father save me
JudasStein

2. Hitchcock Blonde (4:08)
The lens stares full of wonder
Are you ready for your big shower scene?
I'll pull you under
I've been a voyeur since us skirting dirty thirteen

Priscilla Lane
Madeleine Carroll
And Joan Fontaine
Grace Kelly
Ingrid Bergman
Tippi Hendren
Eve Marie Saint
Marlene Dietrich
Kim Novak
And Janet Leigh

There's a mystery about you
Like a sinister bond
Concealed in ice
The more I spy
The more I want you
Hitchcock blonde

Hitchcock blonde
The lens stares full of wonder
Hitchcock blonde
Are you ready for your big shower scene?
Hitchcock blonde
I'll pull you under
I've been a voyeur since us skirting dirty thirteen

Priscilla Lane
Madeleine Carroll
And Joan Fontaine
Grace Kelly
Ingrid Bergman
Tippi Hendren
Eve Marie Saint
Marlene Dietrich
Kim Novak
And Janet Leigh

There's a mystery about you
Like a sinister bond
Concealed in ice
The more I spy
The more I want you
Hitchcock blonde

Hitchcock blonde
The crows are at your pearly throat
Hitchcock blonde
The knife, prepared to stab
Hitchcock blonde
Beauty aloof, murder she wrote
Stares out far colder on the mortuary slab

Mortuary slab

Sophisticated victims
Peroxide and a paradox
Twixt deep flames and the cool façade
Heroines in jeopardy
Just blow my twisted socks off

There's a mystery about you
Like a sinister bond
Concealed in ice
The more I spy
The more I want you
Hitchcock blonde

Hitchcock blonde
The lens stares full of wonder
Hitchcock blonde
There's a secret deep we all need to dig
Hitchcock blonde
It whispers thunder
Rushing through those blue eyes
Like a baby oil rig

Hitchcock blonde

Hitchcock blonde
Nylons off and on and on
Hitchcock blonde
Nylons off and on and on

Psycho killer
3. Under the Thunder (5:19)
Come summon the storm
The high plains of the mind
Invoking these drifters again

Drums are becoming
Tattooed and defined
Through ink drops
Of great spiritual rain

Incense is cloying
Raised campfires blaze
Behind our defences

A perimeter fence
To distance the sane

Under the thunder
The War Dancers writhe
In ted feathers dressed
Flesh pressed to the sky

A clawed metamorphosis
Quickens the eye
Tornadoes are at our disposal

Never will enemy lives
Darken our hearts and survive
Hell will be hearkened tonight
Full retribution decides
So now unholy
Death
She starts her canter
And with the ghostly
Under the thunder we ride

Whip up the sloven
Ex-lover of war
Her beauty has softened with age
Spread out her wings
Her legs sing to be bored
The Kraken is itching to wake

Dark clouds are gathered
A slathering bloom
Behind our offensive
Masked in a vast
Exaltation of doom

Under the thunder
The War Dancers writhe
A dread single purpose to usher demise
Try not to provoke
The black smoke to arise
Signalling massive reprisal

Never will enemy lives
Darken our hearts and survive
Hell will be hearkened tonight
Full retribution decides
So now unholy
Death
She starts her canter
And with the ghostly
Under the thunder we ride

Here we go

Our braves are running
Forgiveness not to be
Wave upon wave keep coming
To claim your scalp

Heartbeats flicker with velocity
Manitou steers the reins
Burning with liquor ferocity
Careers throughout their veins

Under the thunder
The War Dancers arrive
Valour and vengeance
Aflame within their eyes
Forever fear the Reaper
Fell creepers in the snow
Living in the shadow of the inevitable
Warhammer blow

Worm caste of men
Don't cross our hunting grounds again
The reason spite that brooked no invitation
Just understand the brutal hand that strikes is always there
To take away your celebrations
To break your paltry aspirations
4. Full Dark, No Stars (6:23)
Hark, the feral angels bring
The black shadow over everything
Hark, the feral angels bring
The black shadow

On the Devil's trail
The road is blind
I can't speak for you
I don't know your crimes
Your bitter heart
Has us entwined
I feel its edge
Cut through my mind
It could be you
It could be me
That holds the key
To my own reason
My freedom

Sick of the nightmares
Gripped with these fears of guilt
Ground under their stares
Drowned in the tears spilt
What if the "what ifs" take control
And I am lost forever to this
Disgust
What have I done?
I'm slipping to enter another dementia
Now

Spiteful nights draw claw marks upon my door
And I'm more than sorry than I've ever been before
Vultures circle numbers up their caws assure
There's no path back along this grasping deep black shore

On the Devil's trail
The road is blind
I can't speak for you
I don't know your crimes
Your bitter heart
Has us entwined
I feel its edge
Cut through my mind
It could be you
It could be me
That holds the key
To my own reason
My freedom

Sick of the nightmares
Gripped with these fears of guilt
Ground under their stares
Drowned in the tears spilt
What if the "what ifs" take control
And I am lost forever to this
Disgust
What have I done?
I'm slipping to enter another dementia
Now

The callous sun descends
Upon all my dreams

Think of the world I left behind
While chasing demons in my mind
I pitched into the dark (into the dark, into the dark)
Who could have known they'd find me there
And in the depths of my despair
Imprison me inside and take control?
Take my soul

Break me down
Lift me up
To be dashed on the rocks of Hell
I am but an empty cup
Where once my lifesblood over welled
Break me down
Lift me up
To be dashed on the rocks of Hell
But this is but a quick hiccup
If I should rise from where I fell

On the Devil's trail
The road is blind
I can't speak for you
I don't know your crimes
Your bitter heart
Has us entwined
I feel its edge
Cut through my mind
It could be you
It could be me
That holds the key
To my own reason
My freedom (freedom)

Freedom
Freedom
Freedom

Hark, the feral angels bring
The black shadow over everything
Hark, the feral angels bring
The black shadow over everything
Hark, the feral angels bring
The black shadow over everything

HARK
The black shadow over everything
HARK
The black shadow over everything
5. Shine on Sophie Moone (6:34)
I awaken because of war
Not a pause for thought at all
Every note plucked ‘til its worse
In disarray
I feel superhuman then
No enemies can take me when
Squealing lust erupts again
Just at her name

I have her running through my veins
Like heroin whispers 24/7
The flame remains the same

She is everywhere and I swear everything
Is but a piece of her Heaven

Sugared with the sweet
My heart beats a rose tattoo
Through the levitating soles of my feet

She is the sun…
Shine on Sophie Moone

She is the sun that fells the gloom
Climb on
Shine on
Shine on Sophie Moone

She is exquisite, a visit from an angel
Enabled and fabled her
Muster the power not to crawl
I picture incidents, coincidences, soft offences
Just a million little tricks to witness consequences
Please take me wanton for a fool

She is the sun that fells the gloom
Climb on
Shine on
Shine on Sophie Moone

Shine on Sophie Moone

Life returns to my yearning shores
Mist it lifts to drop its jaw
I am burning to the core
In varying decrees
She ampoules adrenaline
Butterflies flutter by on her wind
Just one wish to start the spin
Into her sea

I have her running through my brains
Like tearaway airwaves 24/7
The game remains the same

She is everywhere and I swear everything
Is but a piece of her Heaven

Viral blonde
She responds
Her infection making my white crust leaven

She is the sun that fells the gloom
Climb on
Shine on
Shine on Sophie Moone

She is the sun that fells the gloom
Climb on
Shine on
Shine on Sophie Moone

She is the sun that bleeds the strangely red horizon
The world could end
For all I know
Still smitten by her glow

That desirable whore
She just stood there in the spotlight
Like a substitute Valkyrie
In barely a dress, grinning
Mocking…

And her eyes, set with a flash of diamonds
Seeing me with something akin to thin disgust
I didn't care she didn't love me
I just wanted her so fucking badly
It stung like murder

Tearaway stars shine on Sophie Moone

I'm sorry if the words get stuck in your flirty, dirty craw
I'm sorry but it hurts far more to sheathe my claws
6. Life Is What You Keep from the Reaper (5:02)
Life is what you keep from the Reaper

Now freedom has come again
Life is what you get to keep from the Reaper
He never makes amends

Lovers here we go
Not too slow
Let the night accelerate towards the mystery show

If the beasts at our back, hunting pack
Reenact their bloody spree
I'll be letting you know

Half the lights are on in Heaven

Through Hell
Do well
Soon tell
We are the stars
The dark between them whispers
Through Hell
We are the ones
Do well
The sons and daughters of the storms
Soon tell
And we were undone
The sons and sinner sisters

Life is what you keep from the Reaper

The world awaits with fated breath
Life is what you get to keep from the Reaper
Adventure baiting Death

Awake, overdosed
Not too close
We're the ghostly last descendants of a past comatose

Survivors from the crack, dressed in black
Never looking back
Now our powder keg is itching to blow

Hall the lights are off in Heaven

Through Hell
Do well
Soon tell
We are the stars
The dark between them whispers
Through Hell
We are the ones
Do well
The sons and daughters of the storms
Soon tell
And we were undone
The sons and sinner sisters

Neutered, dumb
Enslaved by slimy traders who paraded the means
Putrid scum
On a tiny pool beside an ocean of dreams

I will throw my middle finger at them
When they're begging
When they're begging in Hell

We will throw our middle fingers at them
When they're begging
When they're begging in Hell

We will throw our middle fingers at them
When they're begging
When they're begging in Hell

We will throw our middle fingers at them
When they're begging
When they're begging in Hell

Through Hell
Do well
Soon tell
We are the stars
The dark between them whispers
Through Hell
We are the ones
Do well
The sons and daughters of the storms
Soon tell
And we were undone
The sons and sinner sisters

Life is what you keep from the Reaper
7. Dea della morte (5:36)
Midnight swiftly gathers up her gown
And follows Cinderella
Fleeing from the castle grounds

Back to her swallowed cellar

She's no ordinary faerytale
In contrary quite the diva
For every second spent with her
Bites with a slow and potent fever

Mad as a hatter, does it matter
If the sky burns red or purple?

I love her more than wicked words can say
Insanity is a plot to lean on
My heart will darken come what may
I sing the theme song

She disturbs the moral way
I walk the night, I sleep the day
Lest my lips will deeply miss her
Dea Della Morte

Dea Della Morte

Dark side of the honeymoon
I'm Jeckyll to her Heidi Klum
The real-life Creature From The Black Lagoon
Caught swimming in her dreams

Abducting, conducting
Shared erotic deeds, stroke fantasies
I plucked her out of classified for my needs

Miss Twin Peaks seeks asylum seeker
From a broken soul, for ventures

Pearls in a whirlwind, come what may
Insanity is a purse to cling to
I love you more than wicked words can say
Thanks to my curse, dementia

She disturbs the moral way
I walk the night, I sleep the day
Lest my lips will deeply miss her
Dea Della Morte

She disturbs the moral way
I walk the night, I sleep the day
Press my kisses, deep abysser
Dea Della Morte

Dea Della Morte

She is the flame that flickers in rickety heaven
I am the torch, debauchery covets my name
And we are both together forever fornever to sever
Our bond beyond the pale and windowless pane

She disturbs the moral way
I walk the night, I sleep the day
Lest my lips will deeply miss her
Dea Della Morte

She disturbs the moral way
I walk the night, I sleep the day
Press my kisses, deep abysser
Dea Della Morte

Dea Della Morte
8. Entangled in Our Pride (5:32)
I walked alone
Through streets lit precarious
Never caring, never sharing
A ghost that chose to roam

I walked alone
Through forests hung with shame
Pretending, a rose ending
Waited in the wings and spoke my name

What days were wasted
Walling in our lies
While the world appeared amazing
But blindly passed us by?

See our spirits soar
Hear the thunder pound across the sky
For if we're bound to die
Let's die alive

Oh God I know we've both done wrong
But screw the moral tide
Only pain resides
Entangled in our pride

I swam alone
In the rivers of the dead
But dreaming, never seeing
Beauty come so close

I swam alone
In those eyes so damn morose
Unyielding
I beat down the fucking doors
Until they broke

What days were wasted
Walling in our lies
While the world appeared amazing
But blindly passed us by?

What dreams once tasted
Swiftly stole goodbye?
My other, discover
Our souls are meant to shine

See our spirits soar
Hear the thunder pound across the sky
For if we're bound to die
Let's die alive

Oh God I know we've both done wrong
But screw the moral tide
Only pain resides
Entangled in our pride

Now the stars are righted, brightly
Lets put our knives aside

I had a vision
No, more a nightmare
Frightened past compare
Sights bored through a morbid quagmire
Conspired where
I saw scored corruption
On the face of a wraith passed in despair
I don't wanna die like the sign I saw
Of me alone and unloved there

See our spirits soar
Hear the thunder pound across the sky
For if we're bound to die
Let's die alive

Oh God I know we've both done wrong
But screw the moral tide
Only pain resides
Entangled in our pride
9. Hell at My Back (5:43)
I've gone as far as I can break
Her funeral left all in its wider wake
I'm damned but still I'm running
My assassins, still they're coming
Suitors commence
The future repents

Beauty looked me in the face
I sold my soul for her embrace
But Heaven was a fleeting taste
And Hell came openly

Disfigurement and exile further woe
Cast from castle walls to serve below
Cradled in her arms and then let go
To the moat and potent sea

With a love so overwhelming me
Tragedy just came to be

Garrotted by the past
Laughed at by the scars
Got it in the arse
By the Lightning God's decree

Destined to fester
Where time's ripples echo tsunamis

Never knowing what the morrow brings for me
I'm a fallen angel on the wing
What words of sorrow will they sing for me
As I face my plight eternal?

Murder on the Devil's highway
Dark figures point clawed fingers my way
What wicked debts will I repay
Dragged screaming to the pit?

Hunted like a dog
Unrelenting on the scent of loss
Demons ravage everyone I cross
I'm a fugitive under-lit

From a hate so overwhelming me
I feel the heat scourge at my back

Burning with the past
How long can I last?
Horror sits aghast
At the frightening depths I've seen

Courting the onslaught
This is what they get if they fuck with me!

Never knowing what the morrow brings for me
I'm a fallen angel on the wing
What words of sorrow will they sing for me
As I face this night eternal?

As I face my plight eternal

The flood is quickening
The dark is drawing in like vulture claws
My blood is thickening for the war

When the moon's been taken by the storm
And the night is rife with tribulation
Think of me as I have you, lovelorn
Our day will come, whatever the sum…
Of our suffering

Our day will come, whatever the sum…
Of our suffering
