Dreaming with the Dead Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level
1. Sweetness (2:55)
Sweetness, can't you smell the sweetness?
My penchant for slicing flesh
You'd bear no witness
My sickness
A most foul sickness
The odor of death still clings to me
So sweetly
Too sweetly

Living canvas just scream and scream
For the last and the only son of divine sickness

I carve flowers in their flesh
I always mourn for their deaths
To see a fragile canvas rot and wither to dust

The sweetest sweet scent of their fresh let blood
Utter revulsion for what i've done
This gross repugnant mission is my cross to bear
My strength is in their pain
Pure hate, pure hate
Sacred yet profane
Ordained, ordained

My life has taken this vicious turn
An absurd icon that you might learn
That flesh is weak
A soul maligned you cannot trust
Because hiding behind a pleasant smile
Can be a tormented mind defiled
Natured in a world that cultures hate

Lead: Shaune

My sensitivity
My brutality
It's all relative
2. Dreaming with the Dead (1:45)
Through the iron gates
Past the holy graves
Down the marble steps
Unlock the family crypt
My sinister ancestry
Have hypnotic holds on me
Their spells and incantations
I learn with trepidation

Within the lurid tomb
Their black ideas bloom
I spend my nights awake
To hear the dead relate
Arcane philosophies
Nocronomic prophecies
Summoning beasts that dwell
Deep in the ancient well
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
The dead control my living husk
Compelled to embrace such an evil trust
Ashes to ashes
Dust to dust

Lead: Shaune

Now I am a somber shell
The dead direct my living hell
Sometimes they toy with me
The horrors they make me see
Hideous blasphemies
Things that I set free
Abominations free to strike
This vile curtain shouds my life
3. Anti God (3:08)
Deeper, deeper in the woods they�re found
Chanting, chanting Cthulu cometh now
Sacrifice, sacrifice, give it flesh they sing
Calling, calling the lord blasphemy

The old one, great old one
It is nightmare itself
Waiting in slumber
Deep in the earth it dwells
Steaming, oozing stench of one thousand graves
Sleeping, dreaming in the corpse city of Ry�leh

Cthulu, dread Cthulu
It darkens the sun
The ancient, the anti god
Lord of the unholy ones

Howling, baying like animals in heat
Living dying by the master�s decree
Teaching it�s vulgarities even as they sleep
Awaiting the chaos when the master leaves the deep

Lead: Shaune

Deeper, deeper in the woods they�re found
Chanting, chanting Cthulu cometh now
Sacrifice, sacrifice, give it flesh they sing
Calling, calling the lordly blasphemy
Hear them calling blasphemy
4. Glorious Depravity (1:59)
There�s a house on a bleak New England lane
Standing in contempt of our disdain
Hidden beneath its aged floors
Lies a best forgotten door
That leads to

Decrepid steps, wretched depths
Deep horrors left unquestioned
Perverted forms in gleeful scorn
Of things human an dreverential
Reptilian skins writhe in sin
Forsake humanity for beastiality
Sickening shapes, aberrations
Intensified by generations

Tongues flagellating, bodies undulating
In an orgy of glorious depravity
Perversions slithering, morals withering
In an orgy of glorious depravity

There�s a house on a bleak New England lane
Standing in contempt of our disdain
Hidden beneath its aged floors
Lies a best well forgotten door
5. Beyond Humanity (4:18)
Are you sane Crawford Tillingast?
Bow you�ve seen it, how long can your sanity last?
Don�t go back in the house on Benevolent Street
Defy the urge no mater how it entreats
Deny the lust and greed to see
It�s usurping your will and humanity
The pineal is no means to sanctity
Just a catalyst for the corrupting entity

Omnivorous, it feeds on minds deceased
Great knowledge, yet such perversity
The evil that lurks in all men�s minds
You must defy it, strike it blind

Uncovering latent vision
Pretorious sounght to find nirvana
Absorbed in gratification, climaxed in decapitation
Festering withing the maw, digested by the hungry obscenity
United and debased with the voracious mutated amalgamation

Awash in a sick sensation, ravaged, debauched, not emancipated
Sapient abomination, sucking in the covetous myrmidon
Swollen, satiated, glutted from metempsychosis
Devouring without prejudice, engulfing, consuming, incorporating
Because humans are such easy prey

Defy it, save yourself
Survive
Defy it, save yourself
Survive

Beyond humanity
6. Feeling Pleasure through Pain (3:34)
Skeletal hand of a desperate man
Lays a bludgeon upside your head
He wants your flesh and he wants it fresh
That�s why he will wait you till you�re dead
He wants your essence, it gives him presence
Puts meat on his bones
No more languishing, forever in anguish
Frank is coming come

Hellraiser
Hellraiser

In search of the threshold of pleasure
Obtained by sadistic measure
Lament configuration
Bliss through disfiguration
Malevolent priests inflicting agony
Ecstacy through misery

Mauled, ripped and torn
Pleasure and pain come as one
Mauled, ripped and torn
Pleasure and pain come as one

Severe mutilation brings joy
Using bleeding torturous toys
First they will desect you
Innocent blood then resurrect you
Vicious circle never end
Finding pleasure though pain again, again
7. Through the Skin to the Soul (2:26)
I spoke the words that let them in
Chanted in tongues, indulged in sin

Lead: Shaune/Erik

I�ve embraced a darker way
Will a new life begin
Conspiracy with demons
Hidden deep witin my skin

They taint my soul now
Insidious brethen
Wispering their hatred
Of the purity of heaven
Through the skin to the soul
Conspirator unforgiven

Their elegance disarmed me
So subtle, yet obscene
Their gilded lied designated to drive me
To hideous extremes
They�ve taken all my faith now
Only fear and pain remain
I�m a mortal door, I�ll cry no more
I�l never be redeemed

In my sleep they afflict me
With sordid blackened dreams
They fill my mind with hellish crimes
In loathing I am clean
My anger can expell them
Riding on my screams
Fits of anger unlock the cage
Consequencees to be seen
8. Rift of Hate (3:58)
Pulled kicking, fighting into an abyss
Your ignorance and hatred have opened wide a rift
Stupidity, arrogance stoke the fire well
Not looking for violence but who could ever tell

You�ve opened wide a rift of hate
Shall we back down or shall we reciprocate

Adrenalin flowing, fists and elbows pumping hard
Putting up a wall so you can�t become a part
Long hair, short hair, schisms in the brain
It�s senseless and brutal and there�s nothing there to gain

Lead: Shaune

You�ve opened wide a rift of hate
Shall we back down or shall we reciprocate
9. Deeper Demons (1:51)
What ever happened to little Colleen?
She made some movies doing things obscene
Made a mil, became a cocaine fiend
Deeper demons never seen

Dicks she was taking, money she was making
She didn�t realize the toll it was taking
Dicks she was taking, money she was making
She didn�t realize the toll it was taking

Playing Shauna brought a sleazy high
But it wrecked herself and made her want to die
Shocking, tragic and they all cried
But will it happen again or will we ask why?

The drugs she was taking, the money she was making
She didn�t realize the toll it was taking
The drugs she was taking, the money she was making
She didn�t realize the toll it was taking
10. Sickness of Will (2:16)
It�s a sickness of will, get a life
Conformity instills, get a life
Plastic personality, get a life
Void of originality, get a life
Such a waste of human flesh, get a life
Aspiring to less, get a life
Call and you just follow, get a life
It�s sickening and hollow, get a life

This is the land of the free, where�s your individuality?
Why aren�t you striving to be all that you can be?
Take a chance, thrash a trend
Take a chance, it�s not a law you can bend

Get off your complacent butt
Snap out of your spineless rut
You can gain a little dignity
Learn the meaning of integrity

It�s a sickness of will, get a life
Conformity instills, get a life
Call and you just follow, get a life
It�s sickening and hollow, get a life
11. Chugging Pus (2:24)
Lance the boil, drain the pus
Cleanse the sores they leave on us
Righteous and false they are a plague
The antibiotic for them is rage

Immoral majority, corrupted hierachy
Wolves in sheep�s clothing, condemn them with loathing

Bastions of hypocrisy
They sully the image of decency
Espousing lies, preaching insanities
Conscience of no remorse
Their�s a deceitful selfish course
Abased in infamy, weeping for sympathy
Expose the contradictions, stifle the contagion
Degraded, stigmatized, naked without their lies

Local pastor can�t control his lust
Holy man fallen - Chugging pus
Distinguished senator drank too much
Death by auto - Chugging pus
The honorable mayor is now a bust
For smoking crack - Chugging pus

Local pastor can�t control his lust
Holy man fallen - Chugging pus
Distinguished senator drank too much
Death by auto - Chugging pus

Pick the scab, peel the crust
Reveal the infection we mistrust
Propriety is just a husk
Shoke on your lies
Chugging pus

You�re despised because you point your finger
While the stench of your lies forever linger
Like the encrusted cunt of an abcessed whore
You infect, you bring us your gorge
Your pathetic, societies festered affliction
Your bacteria, you deserve that distinction
12. Seduction of the Innocent (3:38)
Here to tell you a twisted story
Like back when comics were gross and gory
Before Dr. Werthan, that righteous slime
Claimed horror and gore led kids to crime

Acid in the face, needle in the eye
Decapitation, dimemberment, even sicker ways to die

And so the story goes
A creep commits a crime
Sanguionary, atrocity
A body dissected while alive
The vital parts then sold
Still living flesh, not cold
To make a tasty sausage
Making cannibals of untold
Now there is a widow with a malignant plan
Revenge for her own man
She sliced and diced

Revenge for sixty cents a pound

Seduce the innocent
Seduce the innocent
Seduce the innocent
Seduce the innocent
