One of Us Is the Killer Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. Prancer (3:52)
how could it all be
we've never been dead
but never awake from this dream
how could it all be
we’ve never been dead
just mirrors running scared
slicing wrists while we look for our own mortality
all the lights went out cold
shadow covers the soul
essence of the world made ceremonial
now we all wait for the demise

what was the question?
why do you need an answer?
we make me nauseas
I guess it just means I need us
ripe for me to eat your juice runs sweet
never so good
funny how nothing chips away at us like us
check the unlocked door but it's still locked
always locked
always locked
always locked

talk to me across the way as if you don't even know me
and as if I could never give even half a fuck at all
for the record there is never anyone controlling
our trajectory is ours
funny thing is when this is all just memories
looking back will be the same as moving forward
I'll probably give anything to try to go back in time
time when I didn't have to
empty lips just for distraction
rip the demons from their sleep
fornicate inside me
gouge my eyes out so I'll never weep
how could it all be
we finally figured this shit out
and now you'll see that you were all wrong
but you were all just mirrors running scared
just some ghosts wearing my skin
trying to disbelieve it
fuck you now try to disbelieve it
fuck you now try to disbelieve it
fuck you now try to disbelieve it
oh fuck you now try to disbelieve it
2. When I Lost My Bet (3:53)
TAKE
take what you can
you're entitled to the prize
fill you up with
all that you can take
take what you can
you're the princess and the prince
fill you up with
all that you can take

I heard that you were the last to leave
the party you just had to see
where everybody had to be
the best in town
heard they tried to kick you out
cause you were foaming at the mouth
holding ground you had to play
cause who knows what you'll win today

you've got to figure out how high you'll get by doing nothing
opportunity presents itself at every turn
stick around you never know whose ego you can stroke
which mask to wear a rung to climb to suck up
stick around you never know whose ego you can stroke
a rung to climb a pill a line a mask to hide your face

I'm breaking out
don't keep me down
I'm missing out
don't keep me
hey I'm freaking out
don't turn me down

you're getting there
for sure
real close
all over the bathroom floor
who's getting it
you sure
we need more
never mind the night's

run
out

eyes are spinning
look at me
you're winning
can't you see
lights colliding
you're spun out
you're climbing straight to the top

your fortune still waiting
you keep climbing
straight to the top
your fortune still waiting
YEAH on your hands and knees so you can take

all that you can
all that you can
all that you can
all that you can take

It's getting so close that you can taste it
It's getting so close that you can taste it

WHOA!

It's getting so close
you're getting it
for sure
your clothes all over the bedroom floor

who's getting it?
are you sure?
need more
never mind just get

out
3. One of Us Is the Killer (3:28)
she moves abstract just
like a shadow dancing on the edge
like a storm cloud passing overhead
effort-less and free
as the hours rush by
through her I can sense the end of time
there’s no way this can forever shine
make the sun not rise

[Chorus:]
in the air we tried to be
but you shot your arrow through me
now one of us must die
but the killer won’t survive

she moves abstract just
like a shadow dancing on the edge
like a storm cloud passing overhead
hypnotizing me
as the hours rush by
through her I can sense the end of time
stretch into eternity divine
and the sun wont rise

[Chorus:]
in the air we tried to be
but you shot your arrow through me
now one of us must die
but the killer won’t survive

in the air we tried to be
but you shot your arrow through me
now one of us must die
but the killer won’t survive
and the killer won’t survive
survive
survive

[Chorus:]
in the air we tried to be
but you shot your arrow through me
now one of us must die
but the killer won’t survive

in the air we tried to be
but you shot your arrow through me
now one of us must die
and the killer won’t survive
and the killer won’t survive
4. Hero of the Soviet Union (2:59)
I took my lover to the sea
drowned him precious bride to be
bleeding heaven from the start
woe is rapture ripped apart
hey you’re honest, aren’t you?
Show me rapture torn apart
everybody’s riddled with disease
but I bet you say, “not me”
so honest, aren’t you?
You’re so honest, aren’t you so?

my, aren’t you
surely the finest of the brigade?
my, aren’t you
always right a portrait of dignity?
my, aren’t you
innocent and never suspectable
my, aren’t you

wait
you smell like shit, not the truth
full of device, not devotion
conscience came right up to you
and then you threw it back
you are the scum of the earth
you are the scum of the ocean
to you it’s above as below
you smear your filth across the world
you smear your filth across the world
you smear your filth across the world
you smear your filth across the world
5. Nothing's Funny (3:25)
You’re an image pale that points and laughs
White mistress in a fiery bath
Now tie me down and take me home
I’m not afraid to go
Now tie me down and take me home
I’m not afraid to go

[Pre-chorus:]
Shake the roots off the trees
Your conscience fades
Eyes have no vision to see
Your soul degrades
Grey follows in front of me
You’ve lost your way
Every life is but a death to me

[Chorus:]
Eventually the jokes aren’t free and
Nothing’s ever fun and
Nothing’s funny

[Verse 2:]
Blunt self believe, too big to fall
Lead shadow stands just inches tall
I hope to God you never die
Your joke is just my type

[Pre-chorus:]
Shake the roots off the trees
Your conscience fades
Eyes have no vision to see
Your soul degrades
Grey follows in front of me
You’ve lost your way
Every life is but a death to me

[Chorus:]
Eventually the jokes aren’t free and
Nothing’s ever fun and
Nothing’s funny

But now I see that the joke’s on me and
Nothing’s ever fun and
Nothing’s funny

Don’t be scared
Don’t be scared
Don’t be scared
Don’t be scared
Don’t be scared

[Chorus:]
Eventually the jokes aren’t free and
Nothing’s ever fun and
Nothing’s funny

But now I see that the joke’s on me and
Nothing’s ever fun and
Nothing’s funny

Your joke is just my type
6. Understanding Decay (3:48)
Drag the knife across the skin
tempted to succumb
carving fervor into flesh
holy we’ve become
turning lips to everyone
giving heart to none
running backwards erasing time
seek the fire but never die

the cradle wipes blood red fresh
and through you the host has chosen a name
the cradle wipes blood red fresh
and through you the host has chosen a name
call the name out
call the name out
call the name out
call the name out

I’ll never be like you
late to my own funeral
I’ll never be like you
late to my own funeral
we’ll never be so late like you to our funerals
I’ll never be like you
late to my own funeral
we’ll never be so late like you to our funerals

push decay inside me for then I can open all the passages into the world
push decay inside me for then I can open all the passages to other worlds
push decay inside me for then I can open all the passages into the world
push decay inside me for then I can open all the passages to other worlds

push decay inside me for then I can open all the passages into the world
push decay inside me for then I can open all the passages to other worlds
7. Paranoia Shields (4:26)
You will never find anything
like a forest in search of its trees
you will never gain anything
take a bullet to kill a wet dream

I will always be anything
like a shadow inside of a cave
I can never give anything
break a sweat just to have some relief

you were always revolting me
like an echo held up to my face
you were always in search of me
takes a second to find what you seek

I will never give anything
break a sweat just to have some relief
I will always be everything
like a shadow inside of a cave

[Chorus:]
I feel you close, heating up my coals
but there isn’t a hell that I would burden with you
death brings us close, isn’t that morose?
but there isn’t a fire that I would waste to burn you

we are both just a fantasy
won’t you please keep imagining me

you’ve become such a piece of me
always were work that I couldn’t see
I will never give anything
break a sweat just to have some relief
I will always be everything
like a shadow inside of a cave

[Chorus:]
I feel you close, heating up my coals
but there isn’t a hell that I would burden with you
death brings us close, isn’t that morose?
but there isn’t a fire that I would waste to burn you

I’ll be with you when you die
always by your side holding onto nights
how’d we let this go so far
cause I don’t know where we are
bring it back to life

I’ll be with you when you die
always by your side holding onto nights
we’ll try to hold the earth still
how’d we ever get this far
cause I don’t know where we are
bring it back to my beginning
your beginning

I could just go to sleep but I wanna scream
I’d wake you up but then you’d see what I mean

I’ve manifested you in fever daydream

[Chorus:]
I feel you close, heating up my coals
but there is a hell that I would burden with you
death brings us close, isn’t that morose?
but there is a fire that I would waste to burn you
8. CH 375 268 277 ARS (2:32)
9. Magic That I Held You Prisoner (2:49)
out of the vile
I can see you hold the grace infinite
shine out the dark miracle
felt you reaching out
caught you as we were both falling down down

we were tricked and scared stiff
from the clock that ticks slow laughing
take this gift for nothing don’t feel shame
sordid salted eyes slow burning from outside
closed swollen drop your shield
start searching don’t look far

you had to be an angel stripped like Abel
out to burn for everyone
but still there is a glowing unconsumed that grows new
all of the stars meant to shine
but when falling mesmerize
don’t look away stop and stare to catch your reflection
and move on to the light
for you deserve
you don’t have to burn for anyone

you hold grace you can’t see
a self that is no self
no shell depicts a true projection
caught you as we fell
now shine out the light from the dark
10. Crossburner (5:04)
I just could not believe
that so much could be achieved
are you for real?
were you for real?
I caught you by the throat
and tried to squeeze
but you weren't real
you were not real

turn your boat you stow away
it’s better there here’s not okay
I’m sorry it’s so far away
you break your back for little things
like compliments and wedding rings
I hate that little song you sing
that song you sing

[Chorus:]
turn your boat you stow away
it’s better there here’s not okay
I’m sorry you’re far away

turn your boat around you stow away

seems you can’t stop making sound
but nothing I can’t read about
your 2 cents fall right on the ground
right on the ground

[Chorus:]
turn your boat you stow away
it’s better there here’s not okay
I’m sorry it’s so far away

turn your boat around you stow away

I just could not believe
so much could be achieved
are you for real?
were you for real?
cause you don’t listen
you never listen
you don’t listen
you don’t listen
I've caught you by the throat and tried to squeeze
but you weren't real
you were not real
why’d I never listen

[Chorus:]
turn your boat you stow away
it’s better there here’s not okay
I’m sorry we’re so far away
I’m sorry we’re so far away
I’m sorry we’re so far away
11. The Threat Posed by Nuclear Weapons (3:46)
I spoke to the sky but God was silent because I knew
so easy to be rolled into a tomb
stripped of all desires
so easy to be
so easy to be rolled into a tomb
so easy to be rolled into a tomb
into a tomb
old tears spice the soil
new taste to pave the path
my medium

we were so compelled but I shoot when I saw you were the “I” recognize
now that it’s cold and the core never thaws I found you to keep me alive

please run far and go faster
I’m a cancer for your life so leave
but still you’re weaving your hair into rags

fast-forward to far away
we’ve never changed
we just need to stalk our prey to make us stay
we’re fucking spiders spinning to pass the time
soul dividers eating our kind alive
you child don’t you go forgetting mistakes or they’ll keep reliving
marrow numbered you awakened
now let’s burn this we created.
