Burning in Water, Drowning in Flame Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level
1. Orifice
Where there's madness, there is sanity
Where there's pleasure, there is pain

Pain, awesome pain
Give me flesh
Give me starvation of flesh
Feed the soul
Forget the flesh
The home must be the heart, the soul, the spirit
2. Burning In Water, Drowning In Flame
Open throated shrieking nature
Living inside alone alive
Gold dusted broken beggar
Walking deserts of disgust

Praying through broken lips
Searching through blinded eyes
Gold dusted broken beggar
Living inside alone alive

Burning in water
Drowning in flame

Inside my house my home
Living on spider's time
Knowing life drive me blind
Ghost of solutions evade my mind

Angel dusted infected leper
Wandering streets of gold and lust
Making love to every healer
Every healer to destroy my trust

Burning in water
Drowning in flame

One silver bullet from god's own gun
Chemical equation for flying to the sun

Burning in water
Drowning in flame

Angel dusted infected leper
Wandering streets of gold and lust
Making love to every healer
Every healer to destroy my trust

Open throated shrieking nature
Living inside alone alive
Gold dusted broken beggar
Walking deserts of disgust

Burning in water
Drowning in flame
Burning in water
Drowning in flame
3. Cold Angel Press
Quarter of an inch past life's death
Flash of a smile with lies on it's breath
Cold sharp steel with anger on flesh
Know the touch of the cold angel press

Gouged out tongue, don't speak but scream
A language of pain, sleep now dream
Starving crippled dog hang on now breathe
Life just lived tomorrow to be forgot
Flesh to earth inanimate to rot
Memories, memories nothing to repress
Know the touch of the cold angel press

Life's too cheap
Make me bleed
Stupidity's the seed

From the seeds of hot white pain
Come questions only the gods can explain
Thoughts and visions of animal insanity
Personal hells of all humanity
Quarter of an inch past life's death
Know the touch of the cold angel press

Life's too cheap
Stupidity's the seed
Make me bleed

From the seeds of hot white pain
Come questions only the gods can explain
Thoughts and visions of animal insanity
Personal hells of all humanity
Quarter of an inch past life's death
Know the touch of the cold angel press
4. Charlemagne
I bleed black mud
I bleed a cavity in your body
A cavity for thoughtless fuck

Pour forth, black mud
Pour forth, black mud life

I bleed a hole
Without pain
Life of pain
Over years of struggle
Skin coat over skin touched
Broken soul vanity
Crippled body touched

Pour forth, black mud
Pour forth, black mud life

Life of pain
Over years of struggle
Skin coat over skin touched
Broken soul vanity
Crippled body touched

I bleed black mud
I bleed a cavity in your body
A cavity for thoughtless fuck

Pour forth, black mud
Pour forth, black mud life
5. Gemini
I can see
Through my dandelion eye
Broken skin
Poison vein
Dandelion
I can see inside
Through my dandelion eye

No longer blind
Taste of life on top of my tongue
My cold grey brain
Burning like a gun
I can see inside through my dandelion eye

Christian does
Just what he please
In his mind
Disease has made him blind
Dandelion
I can see inside
Through my dandelion eye

Am I am I Gemini

No longer blind
Taste of life on top of my tongue
My cold grey brain
Burning like a gun
I can see inside
Through my dandelion eye

Am I am I Gemini

Run, run home
Through green, green grass
Warm blue eyes
Look into the mirror world
Past ugly golden lies
See what I see inside
Dandelion
In my eye

I can see
Through my dandelion eye

Broken skin
Poison vein
Dandelion
In my eye
I can see inside
Through my dandelion eye

Am I am I Gemini
6. Indestructible
Hate and war and blind despair
Tell me you love me
Tears and screams and unholy fears
Tell me you love me
I want you to look at me
Tell me you love me
Tell me you love me

We're not indestructible
We're not indestructible

Pride and lust and selfish greed
Bow your head and pray raw meat
Grind my soul on your city street
Black spine snake crack
Fetal facial moral plaque
Scientific mutilation
Diplomatic falsehood nation
Movie world horror king
Star of saviour play on pain
Instrumental souls insane
I want you to look at me
Tell me you love me

Hollow eyes with death mask grins
Twisted limbs and genital sins
Malevolent malformed procreates
I want you to look at me
Tell me you love me
Tell me you love me

Pride and lust and selfish greed
Bow your head and pray raw meat
Grind my soul on your city street
Black spine snake crack
Fetal facial moral plaque
Scientific mutilation
Diplomatic falsehood nation
Movie world horror king
Star of saviour play on pain
Instrumental souls insane
I want you to look at me
Tell me you love me

We're not indestructible
We're not indestructible

Hollow eyes with death mask grins
Twisted limbs and genital sins
Malevolent malformed procreates
I want you to look at me
Tell me you love me
Tell me you love me

We're not indestructible
We're not indestructible
7. Feast
Rise
Drowning in an ocean of black
Pulled by your power over me
Suffocated, smothered
Martyred like the jesus son
Loved and despised
Put into the ground
Fuck you rise

I lay victim to the crimes of your desire

Your kisses are spears
That pierce my side
Your love is the thorns
That crown my head
Your lies are the lies
That poison my mind
In a whirlwind colorstorm
That drives me blind

I lay victim to the crimes of your desire

I look into
I see my god
Eating filth
I see my fear
I see my heart
Burning up
I see my soul
Sick and grey

I lay victim to the crimes of your desire

Broken and splintered
Like wood from the cross
My spirit lies broken
Covered in frost
Crucified by the love I most fear lost
I lay victim to the crimes of your desire
Martyred like the Jesus son
Loved and despised

Put into the ground
Fuck you rise
Your lies are the lies
That poison my mind
In a whirlwind colorstorm
That drives me blind
8. Once Alive
Big black dog bark
Swollen inside my head
Ears bleed cries of
A thousand years
Broken machine
Limp on and on and on
Infinite words choked
On subjugated flesh

You've sucked the life
From my raw red lung
Lost in a hole
Of useless lies
Seen through the eyes of
Eyes once alive
But all for breath now dead

Silver picture of sanity
Scratched on the side of my head
Forbidden truths now relative
To the tongues that speak them
And I cry out
While moonlight
Cuts my mouth

My bowels ache with the heat of your crime
Pound the pound of 2000 years' time
Prayer wheel grindstone
Break my back
9. Sympathy For The Devil
Please allow me to introduce myself
I'm a man of wealth and taste
I've been around for a long long year stolen many man's soul and faith
Pleased to meet you hope you guess my name
But what's puzzling you is the nature of my game

Stuck around St. Petersburg when I saw it was time for a change
Killed the Tzar and his ministers, Anastasia screamed in vain
I rode a tank held a general's rank when the blitzkrieg raged and the bodies stank
Pleased to meet you hope you guess my name
What's puzzling you is the nature of my game

I watched the glee while your kings and queens fought for ten decades for the gods they made
I shouted out "Who killed the Kennedys?" when after all it was you and me
Let me please introduce myself I'm a man of wealth and taste
And I lay traps for troubadors who get killed before they reach Bombay

Pleased to meet you hope you guess my name
But what's puzzling you is the nature of my game

Just as every cop is a criminal and all the sinners, saints
As heads is tails, just call me Lucifer 'cause I'm in need of some restraint
So if you meet me, have some courtesy have some sympathy and some taste
Use all your well learned politesse or I'll lay your soul to waste

Pleased to meet you hope you guess my name
But what's puzzling you is the nature of my game
Pleased to meet you hope you guess my name
But what's puzzling you is the nature of my game
10. Poisonous
Kiss of steel
Smooth flow body reactor
Plunge keep down
Destroy social mindset factor
Steel snake viper bite
Sweet sting from immoral god of night
Attack sweet center of whole
Gift of calamity disguised as light

Embryonic warmth
Liquid mother's touch
Simplify and rectify
Disguise the lie
Like sweet Jesus breath
Dilute the life
With a little taste of death

Accept no god, flower's the master
Accept no god, flower's the master
Accept no god, flower's the master
Accept no god

Up, up and away
Then buck, buck to the mug
It's a deal gone wrong
And you're bound to catch a slug
While you're shooting up
Your local hustler's shooting them down
And now you're turning tricks for a fix
So get your knees on the ground
Cause sucking dicks in '92 is as good as credit
Dealers never leave home without it
No doubt about it, but don't sweat it
Cause yo! While you're blowing for the blow like a tuba
There's a new shipment coming in outta Cuba
But it's time you got your lips off the mother fucking bone
And if you haven't stooped to that yet
You still better be ready and willing
Yo! Everybody must get stoned, nope
Cause Bob Dylan never saw a ghetto killing

Beautiful red rose
Bloom in brown shit water
Fuck the blue flesh snake
Red rose take root

Embryonic warmth
Liquid mother's touch
Simplify and rectify
Disguise the lie
Like sweet Jesus breath
Dilute the life
With a little taste of death

Accept no god, flower's the master
Accept no god, flower's the master
Accept no god, flower's the master
Accept no god
11. Prey Flesh
Scarred and innocent flesh
Benumbed and stratified
Pins and needles skin and bones

It comes between all my skin
It's never satisfied
Bleeding, breathing, seeking home

Reproduction, fascination
What it won't take from me
Take from you
Take from me
Take from me all my senses
No security
I raise my hands up to you

Pray now down on your knees
I have no feeling disease
Won't stop my feelings due
I raise my hands up to you
