1. Rattlesnake! (3:33)
God damn, holy diver
You made it right back to my bed
Manifested lips that whisper kiss
That whisper kiss

Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey

Pull the shades, pull the shades (I'm gutted)
Guilty, plagued, guilty, plagued (And lonely)

I admit you won't see me again
My end is desperately engaged
Dark, departed, hollow
You see I'm just a shadow
This ravenous beast is chasing shame
A shadow he remains

How will my voice carry tonight?
How do I look under these lights?
Shove my head into the grand ivory keys
Maybe -this will teach me how to sing

Fuck hope, I'm a terror
Heavyweight human disaster
I think I found love (But what's love?)
Why can't we be loved?

Burn, burn, burn it down
Icarus just hit the ground
To the youth that thought they could fly
I bottled up just drank up and died

Oh

How will my voice carry tonight?
How do I look under these lights?
Shove my head into the grand ivory keys
Maybe -this will teach me how to sing

Palest white
I'm blues and reds
This patriot is long past dead

Palest white
I'm blues and reds
This patriot is long past... dead

Forever ending remain
But still gone
Oh God, I fear the steel
Oh, I fear the steel

Forever ending remain
But still gone
Oh God, I fear the steel
Oh, I fear the steel

Burn! Burn! Burn!

How will my voice carry tonight?
How do I look under these lights?
Shove my face into the grand ivory keys
Maybe -this will teach me how to sing

My end is desperately engaged
2. Bear Trap (3:46)
Engraved with the notion that love lies under the sheets
And that stanima is built by twice the number of drinks
Still so I'm led to believe its no lack of morality
I lead young females with daddy complexes back to sleep

We're meant to breed
And so we breed
Just filling the void inside me
My seed wont see the earth
Ending reproduction

Silence the crowd's commotion and find what's ticking
Addict, depressive, so good looking the bomb inside me
My parents passed this on to me it's the same old story
But I refuse to let this be the last song that I sing

I've invested love back into the unloved
So where's my retribution, baby?
I've invested love back into the unloved
And found out that
She'll never fill the void, she's always wanting more

Just round them up, this is the calling of the gun
Just round them up, this is the youth extermination (x2)

Oh my god is she looking at me?
The perfect match for my insecurity

We're meant to breed
And so we breed
Just filling the void inside of me
My seed wont see the earth
Ending reproduction
The child exiled in me
Ending reproduction

I've invested love back into the unloved
So where's my retribution, baby?
I've invested love back into the unloved
And found out that
She'll never fill the void, she's always wanting more

So mommy fucked the mailman and daddy left you both (x2)

So it seems I've fallen for another bruised Georgia peach
I'm convinced I'm only attracted to her through my own inadequacy
Fearlessly I lead young females with daddy complexes back to sleep
Is this breeding or filling the void inside me?

I've invested love back into the unloved
So where's my retribution, baby?
I've invested love back into the unloved (x3)
And found out that
She'll never fill the void, she's always wanting more
3. The Turn (3:23)
The scene is a slaughter
Another young female cadaver
The boys tapped up the scene
This couldn't be imagined in your darkest dreams

Sgt., this job's not cut out for me
My daughter just turned eighteen
I must keep her form this beast
Must keep her from

Slow down boy
Your monster is still on the streets
And yet we don't have shit but these bloody limbs

This curse is all of me
They might think that daddy had his way with me
Or mother never said I love you

My father is a scholar
And my mother is a saint
The truth is
Forever came crashing when i said i do

Your girl is safe with me
Bound and bleeding the way they all should be
And all I've heard is daddy save me please

Confess to the father
This blood on your hands will burn your soul
You've lost control

The moment you cut her
You look to the sky with eyes half closed
I'm letting go.

I'll kill you, you bastard
Don't touch a hair on my daughter
I'll find out where you sleep
You think your sick
I'll show you fucking beast

The church is where we meet
Twenty flat or she'll die you see
Your only chance is to stop this bleeding disease

Mom should've aborted me
And so my dear your end is finally near
It's a shame you have her blonde hair

Confess to the father
This blood on you hands will burn your soul
You've lost control

The moment you cut her
You look to the sky with eyes half closed
You let him go

You've poisoned me brother
The thoughts that we think have made us whole
Now I'm letting go

Requiem of the fallen dove and the murderous twin
Funeral hymn
Sings detective the killers within
4. Scavenger (4:43)
God damnit lord, where have you been?
You heard me praying for love then you came running
God damnit lord, I'm fading out again...
Start tuning in I need attention
God damnit lord, I got a taste for you blood
I've been fasting for weeks, half-assed communion
God damnit lord, god damn.
Somehow it's hard to believe that you put me through this to somehow better me

Don't curse the sky
With words like daggers
The clouds might collapse
Still feeling the weight of the gods
And no legs to move, no legs to move

In tune with my senses
I was blessed with the smell of defeat
I travel with a lonely soul
Trapped in a broken body

Scavenger, where does the vulture sleep?
And when you speak to him
Will you bring him to me, bring him to me
Scavenger, bring forth the jackals teeth
I am corpse; I'm nothing but meat

I don't mind the pope
I don't mind the priest
I don't mind the saints
Send someone to listen to me

I'll burn a cross
I'll kill a lamb
Worship false gods
Blaspheme until you lend a hand

Sun kissed, I'm cracking in pieces
Trust the whore to drink the water
Still a loving mirage to me
She left in search of purer springs
Still waiting on the touch of the one who cured leprosy

Scavenger, where does the vulture sleep?
And when you speak to him
Will you bring him to me, bring him to me
Scavenger, bring forth the jackals teeth
I am corpse; I'm nothing but meat

Someone answer me
I got the steel in my mouth we need a reason to be
Someone answer me
Was it me all along or did she do this to me?
Someone answer me
Is it the fear of loss or is love truly diseased
Someone answer me
If I get out of this does the cycle repeat?

Scavenger, where does the vulture sleep?
And when you speak to him
Will you bring him to me, bring him to me
Scavenger, bring forth the jackals teeth
I am corpse; I'm nothing but meat

I don't mind the church
I don't mind my sleep
I don't mind the gates
Just please warrant me peace

I can't burn a cross
I can't kill a lamb
Can't blaspemize after dead
5. The Prestige (4:05)
No ounce of god
As the alter bleeds
No form of priest at this gathering
No ounce of god as the alter bleeds

So nice to meet detective Ace McCree
I appreciate your tactful timing
Can't say the same for your little girl
But here's something you might not know

She's pink inside just like my other toys
And the blue has been ripped from her ocean eyes
But Jamie, she no longer breathes

This is famine the flood
The locust that eclipse the sun
And as the sulfur and smoke surrounds me
Three plagues from heaven unleashed
And as the trumpet sings the ocean bleeds
The army of god sets upon me
I wear the mark of the beast

Jamie speak
And Jamie oh god please
Just take me, please just take me

She's draped in red upon the cutting board
As I look through the butcher's eyes
Please Jamie, tell me his life or mine

One bullet for love
One bullet for god
One bullet for the monster in all of us (x2)

This is the fire the blood
The hail that blocks out the sun
And as the sulfur and smoke surrounds me
Three plagues from heaven unleashed
As the trumpets sing these angels are freed
The army of god sets upon me
I wear the mark of the beast

Now you see why you've come
It was your hand that killed her mom
You were driven insane because your daughter had her mother's eyes
I am you and you are I

Burn me alive
I've taken my daughters life (x4)

Buried alive
I've taken her mothers life (x2)

Burn me alive
Buried alive

This killing spree is no longer ecstasy
The burden of living is now what haunts me
I have exorcised my inner ghost
Another wounded lover lost control
Beyond the grave
She waits for me
6. Aller au Diable (4:10)
So now I...

I fell in love with a fucking tragedy
And if its passion that you want
Baby I'll ignite the flame

So if it's sorry that you want
Take a second to see
No one can be as sorry as me

This awakening in me
That leaves the scalpel starving for flesh
So slice me up, crack open my ribs
To find nothing beating
Oh baby, I'm flat lining

Oasis, you said you loved me
Instead you left me frozen and cold
Just keep the rope tight
Keep me wrapped up tonight

And it's a struggle
And I've been choking
On the right words to say to you
My heart, my soul, my fear, my faith.
All have encompassed you

So find a way to put me
Please find a way to put me down
When the surgeon gets the shakes
I'm filled to the brim with empty
Can't you see you're the best of what's inside me?
I've murdered myself in your name

Flat lining, still drowning, she's burning, I'm fucking freezing

Drown the whore
No not yet we still gotta get it right
Fire and Flame
Well it's about right, burn that bitch tonight

And so we are a grim psychosis
My slumber serves me another lethal dose

So find a way to put me
Please find a way to put me down
When the surgeon gets the shakes
I'm filled to the brim with empty
Can't you see you're the best of what's inside me?
I've murdered myself in your name

One love in two lives
Love dies in her life
Leaves me with a still framed love life

She left me trembling in this white robe
Locked up and shackled in this dark room
You left me trembling in this white robe

So find a way to put me
Please find a way to put me down
When the surgeon gets the shakes
I'm filled to the brim with empty
Can't you see you're the best of what's inside me?
I've murdered myself in your name

Flat lining, still drowning, she's burning, I'm fucking freezing
I'm filled to the brim and it's all right
I'm filled to the brim with empty
7. Mourning Would Come (3:28)
Slut down, you got to treat them right
Dispatch the boys and leave her spread on site
Slut down, she's not the guilty type
She'll make her rounds
And call you moaning in spite

Daddies little superficial heart attack
(This emotional brat can't feel emotion)
Emotion I lack
Because your sex is a diversionary past time
(And your looks are only temporary)
Am I dead or sleeping?

Man down, just pull yourself upright
With your knack for class it'll be just fine
Man down, don't kid your self big guy
Impending doom is your calling in life

And how far is failure from the starting line?
With legs like that I see why
You've been running for so long
But a king can't build an empire without his queen

The working girl and her dirty red light story
(she says there has been no one before)
we lost transmission (can't talk sex)
And sex means love so its deceased
(she won't bleed) You're not the first to be deceived

Oh yes she'd bleed, if it were up to me
Claiming back that heart she swore to me

And how far is failure from the starting line?
With legs like that I see why
You've been running for so long
But a king can't build an empire without his queen

I say I lost mine at eighteen
She's been active since twelve
I say I'm coming back home
My bird is heading down south
I've been crawling on the floor
She's been laid out in bed
Since then I've been drinking to live
My standards suffered instead

She's nothing but an aging weathered hole (x4)

She's showing off her world
And I'm having trouble breathing
I found my equal
She said shut your mouth just breathe
And come a little closer
You look better inside me

And how far is failure from the starting line?
With legs like that I see why
You've been running for so long
But a king can't build an empire without his queen

She's nothing but an aging weathered hole
8. The Pledge (ft. Greg Puciato of The Dillinger Escape Plan) (3:19)
I pillaged your fairytale
I've scattered the seas to find a reason why
My whiskey tongue leaves sweaty palms
On a sawed off way to say I own the night
Keep your women and children inside, he's looking for a good time (x2)

Here lie my darkest passengers
Embodied in my mind is where they all reside
Here lie my darkest passengers
They lie awake tonight until shes put to rest

In search of a sailor, the headlines have said
This man is a monster, a vermin at best
You don't give a fuck that I'm a rat
Give a fuck that I'm a rat

Here lie my darkest passengers
Embodied in my mind is where they all reside
Here lie my darkest passengers
They lie awake tonight until shes put to rest

So bundle up and wrap up tight
My blade the chill in your fright
I'm just a man but I brought a legion of pain
Don't make me, don't make me
I'm feeling a lovers query

Please take my hand, your body's cold and I still see her face
Please understand, I'm giving back
they'll find true love in your loss
And you can be a part of this
And I can be a part of this
You don't give a fuck that I'm a rat
I'm just giving back

True passion a sadistic fiend
Revolver and the lives we lead
So rope me up or take me in
This always starts it never ends
I'm living dead

Here lie my darkest passengers
Embodied in my mind is where they all reside
Here lie my darkest passengers
They lie awake tonight until shes put to rest
9. Under Water Knife Fight (3:14)
I smell the shit and piss
I swear i found my equal
A gutter philosopher
He's not clean, He's from the streets
But his words are holy to me

He narrates his life as a silhouette
He's legendary, A martyr for despair and tragedy
Yet post-traumatic he shares with me
Sleep and surrender
The bandage of past resides in my dreams
My blood is oil, fossilized, poisoned and perfect black

Release me to the night
In the darkness I'm behind the light
Transparent flight
As you see (I'm fading)
That I've begun to fade
A shadow I remain

Were mortal in humanity
Immortal after being

Does the burden of life proceed?
(After I'm dead) Or do we lie peaceful as we enter sleep?
He's falling over screaming at me

Choke you pretender
Your spitting out phrases of fallacy
Love is lie, paralyzed, by your reflection of staring back

Release me to the night
In the darkness I'm behind the light
Transparent flight
As you see (I'm fading)
That I've begun to fade
A shadow I remain

Young man learn to trust your drink
It only costs a fraction of the price
You pay to get her under sheets
Young man its better to have never loved
Then find the one whom
Will cast you into the shadows
Learning how to live your life as a silhouette

Were mortal in humanity
Immortal after being

Oh, It's just the price you pay
Oh, Just take the hint from me
Oh, if this goes another year
Oh, just say fuck the world you lost your girl

Release me to the night
In the darkness I'm behind the light
Transparent flight
As you see (I'm fading)
That I've begun to fade
A shadow I remain
10. Everybody's Got a Lil' Fonz N'Em (ft. Matt Wheeler) (4:08)
You know that time in your life.
That single moment that defines exactly who you are.
Well that only stings for a second.
I ain't no Frank Sinatra.
I ain't no Sammy D.
But I'm a rodent baby.
And I got a love song to sing.
I'm cool like Miles Davis.
Hot just like Jerry Lee.
When it comes to rocking baby.
No ones better then me.
A music man can't keep his girl.
This boy travels around the world.
Her picture framed in his sleep.
He'll be home in 3 weeks.
Hey I feel like I'm crashing.
Bright lights flashing.
What time does my flight leave?
Sounds to me like engines failing.
I'm done praying. I'm ready.
She ain't no Elvis Presley.
But i think that she moves just like the king.
I guess she's feeling lonely.
So she walked out on me.
She ain't no Paul McCartney.
But she's the insect in me.
Crawling through my body baby.
Her poison travels through me.
A music man can't play anymore.
Can't place his calls from the road.
Without her voice he can't eat.
He'll be dead in 3 weeks.
I slayed the dove. Betrayed by love.
Can't find the vein.
To escape the fame. I slayed the dove.
Betrayed by love. Who killed Kobain?
His girl or pain.
I got a year till I'm turning twenty-seven.
I got a manic whore and a healthy habit.
I've been fucked by labels that had to have a record.
Am I destined for this or will I buckle under pressure.
A music man can't save the world.
But you get his heart and his soul.
Transmitted through the song that he sings.
I hope you bought this one from me.
I ain't Mick Jagger.
I ain't no Bobby D.
But I'm a poet baby.
And i got a rhyming scheme.
Feel pain like Johnny Cash.
And I cry like Frankie V. When it comes to loving you.
I need therapy.
I'll see you at the funeral.
