Music for the Recently Deceased Lyrics

1. Sharks in Your Mouth (4:04)
If I ruled the earth I'd sail ships over seas till sundown.
Then I'd return in dark to walk these streets alone.

By day I hear the serpents calling me
this leads me from the shore in search of the deepest abyss.
I am forever covering my tracks, I'm standing hear with little less than an existence.
though I hold the keys to everything.

this sinking feeling never dies.
I'll chase my sunset laced with pride in this heartless gallion.

although I'd rather fill my lungs and rapidly descend.
and lay with my thoughts under a bleak starlight.
I'll keep pushing on though this perpetually darkness.
then in hell I'll seek my confidence.

then I'd return in dark to walk these streets alone.
the twilight here won't embrace my words like waves do.
the feeling of dryland is making me sick.
So I stand here coughing up sharks till
My neon glowing neck breaks

This sinking feeling never dies
I'll chase my sunset laced with pride in this heartless gallion

walking through the dark hears to a new beginning.
it's time to bow your heads to a nations swinging axe.
while you search for answers planted in the ground.

I'm happy watching you dance your legs down to your knees.
I'm happy watching you be inflactuated with love.
I'm happy watching you... watching you die

this war with myself never ends.
this war with myself never...

the only way I'd return is to an orchestra on wolves.
the only way I'd return is if I ruled the earth.
2. Say Goodbye (4:14)
Storm clouds hanging over head.
Offer not the slightest bit of comfort for the first time in days.
I wait to discover disasters that I've slept though while I felt so alive.
So we say goodbye, so we say goodbye.
Heartstrings severed just as quick as they were discovered.
So we say goodbye, so we say goodbye.
I'll break my own fall, to keep you picture perfect.
Just don't wake me up now..
So say goodbye, close your eyes for the last time, questioning everything that went wrong..
The silence she whispers to me, telling me things we dare to speak out loud.
The collaboration of the blinding sun through vacant streets hits home hard, like a hatchet to the skull.
I'd keep you here if it kept me warm and these winters away.
Your hands were the only hands needed to hold me.
For the first time in days.. I feel alive.
In the end we'll both rot together.
In the end we'll rot together, our love lies in embers
So say goodbye, close your eyes for the last time, questioning everything that went wrong..
Peering out of those same cracked windows.
That I studied, for days upon days..
Suddenly collapse.. It all falls down.
So say goodbye, close your eyes for the last time, questioning everything that went wrong..
3. €666 (3:39)
I curse your name,
I curse the earth you travelled
With a heart so serrated it draws lacerations across the hands
You used to hold so tightly up until now
I'm glad farewells were exchanged before today

This phrase has never sounded so sweet to my ears
I don't mourn this act or mourn for you, I mourn for you
and with those encounters still installed in my mind
I leave with a putrid taste inside my mouth
every living thing on this earth dies alone, dies alone
this phrase never sounded so sweet to my ears
every living thing on this earth dies alone, dies alone
this phrase never sounded so sweet to my ears

with reason enough to curse the earth you walk from
those final encounters stuck, stuck in my mind
the scent of abhorrence still lingers
part your exit
this moment is only married by thoughts of your presence

I curse your name and the earth you're walking on

Every living thing on this earth dies alone...
Every living thing on this earth dies alone...
Every living thing on this earth dies alone...
Every living thing on this earth dies alone...

These scornful thoughts resurrect to the sound of that name.
the scent of abhorrence still lingers here
to look at those lacerations
with no chance to heal, no chance to, heal

these scornful thoughts linger on
these scornful thoughts linger on
these scornful thoughts linger on [fade out]
4. Your Shirt Would Look Better with a Columbian Neck–tie (3:50)
Once I've drawn my final painful breath, and disfigured any beauty my mind has of you.
This process of pain can be ended elegantly.
With no distaste, no fear of soul decay.
I felt betrayed for so long.
These failures dragged me down.
I whither away.
I will never forgive or forget, a constant reminder, your lifeless heart on a rope around my neck.
A keepsake from this rusted love.
We are falling fast to the ground.
I'd bite into your face just to be close to your eyes
I've discarded such beauty in a past lifetime.
I'll stitch my own insides to the highest tree.
A keepsake of this rusted love you wish upon me.
This process of pain can be ended elegantly.
With no distaste, no fear of soul decay.
I felt betrayed for so long.
These failures dragged me down.
I whither away.
I will never forgive or forget, a constant reminder, your lifeless heart on a rope around my neck.
A keepsake from this rusted love.
Everyone here who breathes will fucking die!
5. The Deepest Sleep (3:38)
I'll take you down to the water's edge.
I'll show you exactly what its like, to feel alive.
As you gaze up at the sky, as your frail hands reach out for mine.
I have forced myself to look away..
As all hope is lost, as you gaze up at the sky.
I'll show you exactly what its like to feel alive.
We'll paint it black and blue, as a painful reminded of the black heart that's beating inside you, bleeding inside you.
Among the merciful, sin will reign.
Only guilt will crush us all..
And when we face the end we'll find the deepest sleep.
In graves we dug ourselves.
I'll make sure you never sleep again.
The air around us has become a threat to swallow.
These words are uttered in contempt and spat out like poison.
I hope you rot down to the core.
From many years of misery I'm torn in two.
We'll paint it black and blue, as a painful reminded of the black heart that's beating inside you, bleeding inside you.
Among the merciful, sin will reign.
Only guilt will crush us all..
And when we face the end we'll find the deepest sleep.
In graves we dug ourselves.
6. Bet It All on Black (4:15)
You wore out your welcome, like you wore me down to the bone.
Outside the mood is absent and silence provides no solace.
I offer no shelter from the dead night air.
Just a tomb to call your own.
In this falling tortress awake me from this broken dream.
Your god won't lead you tough today.
He only hears your cries as a chorus to a lullaby.
Your faith has fallen before your eyes.
A mindless cage that keeps you suffocated and on your knees, lonely, wanting more.
He preaches another love song, temporarily blinded by lies.
You taken beauty from these words.
Rewrite your own mind in this war.
You wore out your welcome like you wore me down.
You are an image without form.
...And in this moment my heart collapsed...
You smashed it apart.
He preaches another love song, temporarily blinded by lies.
Everything you hold in your heart is frail.
Everything you love will pass away.
Everything you hold in your heart is frail.
It will perish in a wall of flames.
7. Headfirst from a Hangman's Noose (4:05)
I've never compared myself.
And I couldn't care anymore.
I've never had it to hold, so I've got nothing to lose.
Young love left you broken hearted.
"We could have never had us, because I never had you".
So let your eyes tell the tale.
What I was meant to say.
I thought of you for too long.
Now a frozen smile.. won't even bring you back.
Your kiss is no longer safe to me anymore.
Your lips have turned into something I don't know anymore.
They are the gates to a vicious tongue.
Your razor wrists won't make this change or go away.
I'd never trust those bloodshot eyes..
This love was living with its eyes sewn shut.
At times I'd love to bludgeon you and dance with your corpse.
Yesterday's memories left me weak.
I'm chasing shadows, wasting time, waiting for vegas to call my name.
Idle thoughts spill constantly, from open mouths, with their eyes sewn shut.
I hope this haunts you like it does me, b-sides and broken smiles won't dance with me.
Idle thoughts spill constantly, from open mouths, with their eyes sewn shut.
8. Sleepless Nights and City Lights (3:34)
While you've been dreaming of the dead and lost.
I have been awake kissing these clock faces.
The fear of sleep has left me tired and worn.
But in her dreams is where I will haunt her.
I've seen the shadows..
Of this burning angel.
These city lights will never be as beautiful as your eyes..
I'll pick up the pieces that you've failed, and fallen to the ground.
Let my words set and fall upon your unwilling ears.
It will be okay..
I took to the sky, did you mourn for me
Well who needs flowers when they're dead and buried.
For now my whisper is my dearest friend.
But even I know this won't last forever.
I've seen the shadows..
Of this burning angel.
These city lights will never be as beautiful as your eyes..
I'll pick up the pieces that you've failed, and fallen to the ground.
Let my words set and fall upon your unwilling ears.
It will be okay.
Smile when you think of me, the pain will go in time.
I may be alone with fear in my mind.
I leave these words in hope that.. that we'll meet again..
Again.. Now?
I know this won't last forever.
9. Slain Upon My Faithful Sword (4:08)
So here I stand, breathless, waiting for nothing.
Peer into my chest.
See if, this things still ticking.
Another victim, to that power that no one gave you.
Standing all alone, I've realised I'm not giving up.
The first time this touched me, I became, an invention called zero.
So as I walk from this earth, I'm taking you with me.
Existence will fall.. down.
Betrayed, security.. fails.
All hail your faithless god.. lies.
Slain upon thy faithful sword.. trust.
I will not bow.
Compassion is locked inside, and I'm holding the useless key.
So here I stand, just waiting for nothing.
Peer into my chest, rip me apart.
As this lethal injection runs cold, through my veins.
Lights in my head slowly fade out, I'm in the dark again.
There will be no tolerance, for those with no respect.
Standing all alone, I've realised, I'm not giving up.
If I walk this earth, ill still take you with me.
I'm sure these keys will open.
A vile passion..
Praying hands won't save purity.
Praying won't save purity.
As this lethal injection runs cold, through my veins.
Lights in my head slowly fade out, I'm in the dark again.
All hail your faceless god.
Slain upon thy faithful sword.
All hail your faceless god.
Slain upon thy faithful sword.
Still I refuse to bow.
10. Like Nails to a Casket (4:06)
too many times searching for mercy without sincere remorse.
look into these eyes forever holding doubt under masks of false comfort you wear so proud.
and when the walls tear down the shell expose must head for the shadows.
these bridges still smoldering.
a dark veil shields the eyes but still your name carries in the wind.
know that I'll leave all compassion were it's due.
at the foot of your headstone it's too late to rise from the ruin.
the stench of death hangs in the air tonight.
but if you come back I'll be waiting with an open casket.
I'll be waiting with an open casket to bury you alive.
years of betrayal will stain the days ahead.
I wish to sew the seeds of vengeance a single wish to end this rule.
I wish I sew a seed of vengeance and let the sky be vacant.
years of betrayal stain the days ahead.
I'll be waiting with and open casket to bury you alive.
watch the angels drop like flies.
from the dead heavens above.
