Obsessed With the End Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. Perfect Horror (0:32)
2. Hollow Bones (4:17)
blown through hollow bones
down by the family tree
we drench together
ribs of winter
you and I will sink.

grown true
followed home
drown by the silent sea
we thresh together
fist of splinter
you and I will sink.

they cut off my head
to spite my face
all I need is at my wrist
these elbows bend backwards again
all I need is at my wrist
over and over again.

damn, damn
these elbows bend backwards again
damn, damn
over and over again.

blow through hollow bones
down by the family tree
we drench together
ribs of winter
you and I will sink
they cut off my head
to spite my face

all I need is at my wrist
these elbows bend backwards again
all I need is at my wrist
over and over again.

damn, damn
these elbows bend backwards again
damn, damn
over and over again.

Blind
as a widows
black feathers.

Blind.
3. Fable (3:10)
it came to me when I was six
with open flame and candlestick
it came again when I was ten
with my heartbeat in his hand

we sat inside the applebox
and read the book of snakes
and every word of hope and love
and teeth and eyes and hate

come sit with me imagine this
your every dream a granted wish
but when you age the deal we’ve made
will bring me back and you will pay

you never trade with six six six
the devil takes the graveyard shift
but if you pray the truth away
he’ll make it quick on promise day

we sat inside the applebox
and read the book of snakes
and every word of hope and love
and teeth and eyes and hate

it said to me when I come back
you will have grown into a man
and we will speak about your son
and how I trick another one

we sat inside the applebox
and read the book of snakes
and every word of hope and love
and teeth and eyes and hate
4. Countless (5:47)
older than time
immortal betrayed
the countless souls
I won’t imbibe again.

I am the pawn
and you are the prey
countless potions
I won’t imbibe again

I won’t imbibe again,
don’t count on me.

enter the wolves
ruined by praise
countless oceans
I won’t invite again.

the heart grows so cold
tribute of pain
the sounding horns
I can’t survive again

don’t count on me
when I’m gone
who will you need

I won’t imbibe again
I won’t imbibe again
don’t count on me

you have gone the way of all flesh
you have gone away.

its not that I want to die
its more that I can’t
to see you fading
while im still young
is more than I can stand

and how do I say goodbye
to where I began
this life you’re leaving the only one
has left a lonely man.

I won’t imbibe again
I won’t imbibe again
don’t count on me again.
5. My Sisters (3:27)
what’ll they do with me
eat my books and bleed
the sentences down &
forget all my names.

three graves of man
head, body and hands,
you can have my life’s work
but my heart is caged

three graves of ice
morning, noon and nite
close to three of us die

I ate my sisters bible
and then she said
you better leave before
the devil fills your head
there’s nothing worse
than being fed
I’m not the only one
I’m the only one left.

for good reason.

as it clocks toward an early bright
you’ll find my body carved
into a paper plane
my head splashed across
the boards of lamplite
and pencil shavings dancing on my grave.

three graves of ice
morning, noon and nite
close to three of us die

what’ll they do with me
eat my books and bleed
the sentences down &
forget all my names.

three graves of man
head, body and hands,
you can have my life’s work
but my heart is caged
for good reason.
6. Congratulations (3:19)
first you burn the masterpiece down
something has to be done
will you tie my head fast to the ground
something has to be done.

congratulations
don’t you agree
in seven diamonds
won’t you believe.

now I’m counting stones and the clouds
something has to be done
now I hold my head and wait for the crowd
something has to be done

and it’s claws
drag beautiful
across the floor
drag beautiful

congratulations
don’t you agree
in seven diamonds
won’t you believe.

fang Sunday
wasn’t nice
to be lead by the blind

fang Sunday
was only a man
turning glass into sand.

congratulations
don’t you agree
in seven diamonds
won’t you believe.
7. Icy Blonde (5:37)
dignity
nothing I won’t spare
the wonders of this world
disappear.
that heavenly shade
that leans upon me in the fire
wakes me up.

sit with me
in your fathers chair
protect us from the end
of the stairs
evil,
that leans upon me in the fire
wakes me up.

and I can’t stand straight
and unshaken
and wait
for the ground to take me
back to where I belong.

why don’t you tell the knife
where you been?

and I can’t stand straight
and unshaken
and wait
for the ground to take me
back to where I belong.
8. Kubrick Tongue (2:39)
9. Saint (6:41)
pray for every living thing
on this precious earth
there will come a time
when all matter disappears at birth
in space unknown infinity
a symbol resonates
across oceans of prophecy
a tyrant grows innate.

saint, in a casket circle of leave
saved, by a bastard raised by a thief.

blinded by discovery
a covenant displaced
a lion’s song is worthless
as long as it is tame.

walls made of terrible gold
looking back was your body a slave
always do what you are told
when you know it’s a dying race

saint, in a casket circle of leave
saved, by a bastard raised by a thief.

same time saint.

I know what kind
of animals to eat
golden times new roman master
fall asleep
the serpent king is punishing
this is all I have to say
as I saw in half the holiest calf is me.

walls made of terrible gold
looking back was your body a slave
always do what you are told
when you know it’s a dying race.

saint, in a casket circle of leave
saved, by a bastard raised by a thief.

same time saint.
10. Stay With Me (4:11)
have you found a way to kill me yet
god only knows I don’t care
will you put that switchblade to my neck
is there a god you can spare

we will return to sunlite
take the rest of them, she is mine

stay with me, alone
stay with me, alone

punish them for all the things I’ve done
god only knows I don’t care
then again I’m not the only one
learning to live with myself

we will return to sunlite
everlasting sacrifice

don’t you ever tell me how to bleed
I’m tired of all this goddamn sympathy
no one comes and no one ever leaves
when death and love are equal lunacy

stay with me, alone
stay with me, alone

will you put that switchblade to my neck
cut from a strand of your hair
now I’m caught in the eternal black
I never said life was fair

we will return to sunlite
and we’ll show them paradise.
11. Dig (4:43)
yes it happened right here
slowly crawling my neck
I’ve been at this for so long
you can’t imagine

well we’re all telling lies
then you’re all by yourself
I’ve been at this for so long
you can’t imagine

holy ghost
I divine the heads of serpents

lo behold
I define them acts of courage

dig your grave alive
don’t you stop until
you get to china and die

it so happens my dear
I will have my revenge
I’ll be there when you come home
beaten back from ten

round and round the pendulum
prolongs the end of time
its one thing you know I hide
all my life I’ve been so wrong
you cannot pretend.

dig your grave alive
don’t you stop until
you get to china and die
will your name survive
don’t you know he universe
will end with a knife

you know you didn’t have to give them everything
you’ve got some growing up to do

dig your grave alive
don’t you stop until
you get to china and die
will your name survive
don’t you know he universe
will end with a knife.

it fits you well.
12. Interstellar Grace (6:35)
my mother told me
when to run
and scatter dark seed
and memorize the sun.

my mother told me
pay your debt
and give’m something
‘til there’s nothing left.

this face
this godforsaken place
this face
this godforsaken

my father told me
how to love
with tattered heartstrings
recognized by none

my mother told me
pray for them
until he listens
until he lives again

run.

I don’t care about anyone but you
and I don’t stare I just look right thru
I don’t care about anyone but you
and I don’t stare I just look right thru

don’t get to close
away from me
its only
its only
its only
my old beast

where would I live if
I lived in the elephants eye.

this face
this godforsaken place
this face
this godforsaken.
