Nailwork Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level
1. Nailwork (3:43)
feeding on terrorwhores
sulphurscum for silversouls
and the coffincrow still smiles
a cadaverlaugh from afar
saltnails driven through hymenhearts
and i swallow the scythe

tonight´s the night of the worm
that speaks with nailwork´s tongue

bittermilk and unlight flow
twinkletint for murmurshows
and i eat some rainbowflesh
another wormsong from below
stalking down the gallow´s pole
and my words bleed afresh

tonight´s the night of the worm
that speaks with nailwork's tongue

schizophonic astroride
to the wormland´s vacuumnight
rippin´ the tongue
that spoke of this song

tonight´s the night of the worm
that speaks with nailwork's tongue
2. Blades To Laughter (3:59)
if blades were laughter
each nail a smile
my scissorsmouth
would spit the soil
for words of napalm
none below
for hymenmurmur´s
poisonshow

if blades were laughter
each knife ten teeth
i´d dye the words i breathe
all black

if blades were laughter
each pile a grin
my starscumwords
would twist and spin
the murmurfather´s
silverthroat
that spat the soil
for what i wrote
3. Wormsong (4:16)
i´ve returned to wormland
spinning cadavercircles around the night
astroautopsies breathing orb and earth
eating the word of a starthief´s birth

i´ve returned to that deadend
with a fistful of throats from the downside
astroautopsies breathing orb and earth
eating the word of a starthief´s birth

and we go for the poisonshow
let scythemilk and quicksilver flow
scissorsword and twinkleblade down the tongue
i´ve cut my throat for the wormsong

the grindcrew´s back again
warpin´ the where and when

and we go for the poisonshow
let scythemilk and quicksilver flow
scissorsword and twinkleblade down the tongue
i´ve cut my throat for the wormsong
4. All Scissors Smile (3:57)
woke up with a mouthful of planets
and a fistful of salt
some sundrugged words through that deadhead
and all scissors smiled
been out for more pulsedrivin´ whoresound
spinning those cadavercircles
with a wormnail thru´ my tongue
and all scissors smiled
heard the hearselights sing
watched the twisting saltwordsoil
ate all these inkscented things
and all scissors smiled
comin´ down on the carboncaravan
within this orbcoroner´s coil
saw necronauts and quasarmen
and all scissors smiled

silversonic solarblow
astrotrippin´ slaughtershow
be it this word from the morgue
that makes my deathnectar flow

all scissors smile all scissors smile

silversonic solarblow
astrotrippin´slaughtershow
be it this word from the morgue
that makes my deathnectar flow

all scissors smile all scissors smile
5. How To Eat A Scythe (3:54)
stardrugged upon that worm´s back
the casketcrew is in for the show
of psychophonics from below

down the sunpus course
for a word of all that never was
stoke up the silvermouthmachine
and snatch its terrortongue with a grin
gonna give you some more killing ink
some more unlight
and i´ll show you how to eat a scythe

throatkickin´ bladefood at astrospeed
with a tombwormsmile
ink to rain and rain to ink
all planetflesh to poisonsoil

down the sunpus course
for a word of all that never was
stoke up the silvermouthmachine
and snatch its terrortongue with a grin
gonna give you some more killing ink
some more unlight
and i´ll show you how to eat scythe
6. Black Velvet (Alannah Myles cover) (3:23)
Mississippi in the middle of a dry spell
Jimmy Rogers on the victrola up high
Mama's dancing with baby on her shoulder
The Sun is setting like molasses in the sky.
The boy could sing, knew how to move, everything.
Always wanting more, he'd leave you longing for.

Black velvet and that little boy smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that'll bring you to your knees
Black velvet if you please.

Up in Memphis the music's like a heat wave
White lightning, bound to drive you wild.
Mama's baby's in the heart of every school girl
"Love me tender" leaves 'em cryin' in the aisle
The way he moved, it was a sin, so sweet and true.

Always wanting more, he'd leave you longing for.

Black velvet and that little boy smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that'll bring you to your knees
Black velvet if you please.

Every word of every song that he sang was for you.
In a flash he was gone, it happened so soon,

What could you do?

Black velvet and that little boy smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that'll bring you to your knees
Black velvet if you please.
Black velvet and that little boy smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that'll bring you to your knees
Black velvet if you please.

...If you please
If you please
7. Filthfinger (4:26)
from downsideslides to sunfuckcroons
from syringesongs to dustthroatfuel
from nonwordwork to raincunttunes
from silverpills to warpwallrooms
filthfinger´s takin´ / twistin´ the wounds

filthfinger´s takin´
be it this astrosonic brew
or these lines that someone drew
the sound of napalmrain and whores
the words of womblaughter and stars
filthfinger´s takin´

from vacuumfields to caskethills
from barrelrides to wormtoguethrills
from hearseorbtones to nailstarchills
from deadhousesmiles to scissorsmills
filthfinger´s takin´ / triggin´ the kills

filthfinger´s takin´
be it this astrosonic brew
or these lines that someone drew
the sound of napalmrain and whores
the words of womblaughter and stars
filthfinger´s takin´
8. The Tenmiletongue (4:10)
deathdischargin´ bulletcock
in for some astrocoffinrock
with a wordwarpin´ dustthroat´s spin
kickin´ off another silvergrin
a nevernight´s nethersight
psiloblast and casketlights
ridin´ the neonink tonight

so tells the tenmiletongue
that licks the word it´s nailed upon

coffinmilk and bastardbone
the ultrasonic filthparole
through silvercosmochemicals
to another´s words from verminwells
a nevernight´s nethersight
psiloblast and casketlights
ridin´ the neonink tonight

the spacescythe´s out
to cut some throats again
and i guess mine will be next

so tells the tenmiletongue
that licks the word it´s nailed upon
9. Hearselights (4:25)
so now it´s grinding time
for coroners´ poisonrhymes
electric heads and snipersongs
something killing this way comes

diggin´ the days, the words and all space

so now it´s grinding time
for coffinstalker´s silverlines
whorefood and needletongues
something killing this way comes

diggin´the days, the words and all space

hearselights
eating songless flies
hearselights
somewhat rainscented tonight

so now it´s grinding time
for morticianwords in fine
laughterthieves and solarthongs
something killing this way comes

diggin´ the days, the words and all space

hearselights
eating songless flies
hearselights
somewhat rainscented tonight

somewhat rainscented tonight
10. Down The Throat (3:39)
some say milk and silver listen to the womb
when all these vacuumwords spill out of laughtertombs
some say the badpack´s back for more
when all this cannonink spills out of superwhores
comin´ down on them
from the lavalounge to the hearsewormsoil
with five fingers driven through all scissors´ smiles

the terror of a 1000 tongues
this is what comes down the throat

some say this hateparade´s a sickophonic thing
when all these necrosounds spill out of astrostrings
comin´ down on them
from the lavalounge to the hearsewormsoil
with five fingers driven through all scissors´ smiles

the terror of a 1000 tongues
this is what comes down the throat
11. Quicksilverspine (4:10)
another foulmouthmadsong thrills that necrobitch
a song with a warptone´s itch
another bastardword that feeds coronercunts
a word with a tongueblast´s brunt
filthkickin´ and tripleblack
the berserkmortician´s back
heading for some vulturetint tonight
been whorethroattrippin´ down these rhymes
to return with a quicksilverspine

eating the last planet in line
i´ve got the quicksilverspine

graveridin´ and murmurfed
the electric psychonaut´s ahead
silverwords and scytheplanets aside
been whorethroattrippin´ down these rhymes
to return with a quicksilverspine

eating the last planet in line
i´ve got the quicksilverspine

vitriol or vulvagales
i´ll take the tongue that licks the nail

eating the last planet in line
i´ve got the quicksilverspine
