1. The American Nightmare (4:10)
"Getting ready for bed at a regular time is one of the most important habits you can learn. David has probably never stopped to think what a wonderful thing sleep is. Dreams are normal too. Going to bed at a regular time each night makes it easier for you to go right off to sleep."

Rest your head, here's a lullaby
A melody for heavy eyes
Early to bed, early to die
Welcome to your worst nightmare

Fast asleep, it's all in your head now
Past the street where they cursed my name
But I won't be forsaken
Craven my revenge from the shallow
Grave, where I went down in flames
The beast has been awakened

When night comes creeping
My cruel hand will rock you to sleep

I'm the American nightmare with American dreams
Of counting the bodies while you count sheep
I'm the American nightmare, yeah I'm living the dream
I'm slashing my way through the golden age of the silver scream
(Sweet dreams)

Fell in love with hate cause evil fit like a glove
It's fate that I'm still here
And I won't be forsaken
Wicked when I was just a man
But sickening now and fed by fear
The beast has been awakened now

They all think it's just pretend
You'll never ever sleep again
All your friends are fucking dead
You can't turn down your own death bed

When night comes creeping
My cruel hand will rock you to sleep

I'm the American nightmare with American dreams
Of counting the bodies while you count sheep
I'm the American nightmare, yeah I'm living the dream
I'm slashing my way through the golden age of the silver scream

I'm the American nightmare, I'm the man of your dreams
Where the glove is god, so I'm sinking my claws in the silver scream

One, two, dreams do come true
Three, four, see you at the morgue
Five, six, he'll get his fix
Seven, eight, now shake the twisted hand of fate
Now
Shake the twisted hand of fate
All your friends are fucking dead

When night comes creeping
My cruel hand will rock you to sleep

I'm the American nightmare with American dreams
Of counting the bodies while you count sheep
I'm the American nightmare, yeah I'm living the dream
I'm slashing my way through the golden age of the silver scream

I'm the American nightmare, I'm the man of your dreams
Where the glove is god, so I'm sinking my claws in the silver scream
2. Thank God It's Friday (4:23)
He drowned in all our sins
He drowned in our mistakes
Fueled by the flood, we pay in blood
The curse of Crystal Lake

Ki-Ki-Ki, Ma-Ma-Ma
Ki-Ki-Ki, Ma-Ma-Ma
Ki-Ki-Ki, Ma-Ma-Ma

We've all been laid to rest
Our epitaph reads "Mommy knows best"
A word of warning from beyond the grave that must be understood
Throats get slit in this neck of the woods

She raised him right and he'll come out to play
When Mother whispers, "Thank God it's Friday"

He drowned in all our sins
He drowned in our mistakes
Fueled by the flood, we pay in blood
The curse of Crystal Lake
He's down there deep within
We've found there's no escape
You just scratched the surface
Of the curse of Crystal Lake

Caught undressed we were laid to rest
A drunken, sex-crazed teenage mess
Killed in the climax of debauchery, we learned the hard way
When he came for our lives on the thirteenth day

Did you know my son drowned in this lake
He should've been supervised
But the counselors were off having filthy sex
His name is Jason
And today is his birthday

She raised him right and he'll come out to play
When Mother whispers, "Thank God it's Friday"

He drowned in all our sins
He drowned in our mistakes
Fueled by the flood, we pay in blood
The curse of Crystal Lake
He's down there deep within
We've found there's no escape
You just scratched the surface
Of the curse of Crystal Lake

Don't you know he'll never be gone for good?
So we'll never get out of the woods
A machete in one hand and an axe in the other
Steadfast in his mask in the shadow of mother
Ready to resume
You're all doomed

"Thank God It's Friday!
Kill for Mommy
Thank God It's Friday!"
He'll stop at nothing
Forever hunting
Jason's coming

He drowned in all our sins
He drowned in our mistakes
Fueled by the flood, we pay in blood
The curse of Crystal Lake
He's down there deep within
We've found there's no escape
You just scratched the surface
Of the curse of Crystal Lake

Ki-Ki-Ki, Ma-Ma-Ma
Ki-Ki-Ki, Ma-Ma-Ma
Ki-Ki-Ki, Ma-Ma-Ma
Ki-Ki-Ki, Ma-Ma-Ma
3. Stabbing In The Dark (4:36)
[Verse 1]
In calculated silence
Captivated by the violence of the play
Fifteen years ago today
Oh, an evil evolution
Will bring a feeble institution to it's knees
Oh, doctor can't you see?

[Chorus]
That when the hands of fate
Fall on the midnight hour
Behind this mask of hate
I don the devil's power

[Breakdown]
These are the devil's eyes
The devil's eyes
Go!

[Verse 2]
A former portrait of perfection
Painted without plight
Now Haddonfield's my battlefield
Your kids won't make it home tonight
With a madness void of reason
I kill with every strike
I'll haunt you day after day
Knife after knife
Day after day
Knife after knife
Taking life after life

[Chorus]
When the hands of fate
Fall on the midnight hour
Behind this mask of hate
I don the devil's power
If there's life in the shadows
Let the knife leave its mark
When the certainty of safety feels like stabbing
Stabbing in the dark

[Verse 3]
You'll learn a heartless human harvest
Feeds this festival of flesh
Stalking at the top
Scream of the crop
A silent cut above the rest
Where blood's thicker than water
I've carved up quite a scene
With your worst fears carved on this white veneer
I'll change the face of halloween

[Breakdown]
You can't kill the boogeyman

[Chorus]
When the hands of fate
Fall on the midnight hour
Behind this mask of hate
I don the devil's power
If there's life in the shadows
Let the knife leave its mark
When the certainty of safety feels like stabbing
Stabbing in the dark

[Sound Bit]
All units respond. Multiple fatalities reported on Orange Grove Ave. Suspect has been identified as one Michael Myers. He is armed and extremely dangerous. Shoot to kill, I repeat, Shoot to kill over

[Bridge]
I am a shadow where there once was light
Strangling all signs of life
It's either you or some kid down the street
The choice is yours
Trick or fuckin' treat!

[Sound Bit]
Michael!
Stop it!
Ahhhhhh!

[Chorus]
When the hands of fate
Fall on the midnight hour
Behind this mask of hate
I don the devil's power
If there's life in the shadows
Let the knife leave its mark
When the certainty of safety feels like stabbing
Stabbing in the dark
4. SAVAGES (2:57)
[Chorus]
We are the savages
Eating you alive
The original
Villains in the night
Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide
We are the savages, we are the savages

[Verse 1]
Out on the cringe of society's where we lie
Cause we're lethal liabilities till we die
Won't heed the call of the law won't follow the pack
Because the sound of the saw is our soundtrack

[Pre-Chorus]
Hey, hey, hey
This is our battle call
(Mess with the horns and you get the devil)
Hey, hey, hey
You're not invincible
(Mess with the horns and you get the devil)

[Chorus]
We are the savages
Eating you alive
The original
Villains in the night
Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide
We are the savages, we are the savages

[Verse 2]
Along the cringe of society is where we lie
We're lethal liabilities till we die
Stay at your side of the tracks if you know what's good
Cause you won't make it out of our neighbourhood

[Pre-Chorus]
Hey, hey, hey
This is our battle call
(Mess with the horns and you get the devil)
Hey, hey, hey
You're not invincible
(Mess with the horns and you get the devil)

[Chorus]
We are the savages
Eating you alive
The original
Villains in the night
Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide
We are the savages, we are the savages

[Chorus]
We are the savages
Eating you alive
The original
Villains in the night
Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide
We are the savages, we are the savages

[Chorus]
We are the savages
Eating you alive
The original
Villains in the night
Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide
We are the savages, we are the savages

[Ending]
Hey, hey, hey
This is our battle call
(Mess with the horns and you get the devil)
Hey, hey, hey
You're not invincible
(Mess with the horns and you get the devil)
5. The Jig Is Up (feat. Randy Strohmeyer) (3:57)
[Intro]
No one's above the SAW
Live or die
Now the choice is yours
Live or die

[Verse 1]
Their tightening vices unearthed
To prove what they're worth
Amidst their sins
The game begins
A frightening chance to be saved
With blood on the blade
Morality takes casualties

[Pre-Chorus 1]
My blueprint to salvation
Shall breed a worthy generation
That know they are the ones to blame
And never will forget my name
You want to play a fucking game?
All systems go

[Chorus]
I saw through the selfish but saw no soul
They saw through skin, they saw through bone
Out on a limb to save my city
All systems go!
They're all just gears in my machine
I savour every puzzled scream
A piece of them to carry with me
All systems go!

[Verse 2]
If the choice is to kill or be killed
Let the darker blood spill
Cause it feeds the drive to stay alive
Unnatural selection engage
Two rats in a cage
One reborn and one to mourn

[Pre-Chorus 1]
My blueprint to salvation
Shall breed a worthy generation
That know they are the ones to blame
And never will forget my name
You want to play a fucking game?
Then let's play!
All systems go

[Chorus]
I saw through the selfish but saw no soul
They saw through skin, they saw through bone
Out on a limb to save my city
All systems go!
They're all just gears in my machine
I savour every puzzled scream
A piece of them to carry with me
All systems go!

[Bridge / Breakdown]
They said they have a purpose
But are losing their composure
They said that they were grateful
But the jig is up
Game over

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Will you find integrity
When there's nothing left of me?
All systems go

[Chorus]
I saw through the selfish but saw no soul
They saw through skin, they saw through bone
Out on a limb to save my city
All systems go!
They're all just gears in my machine
I savour every puzzled scream
A piece of them carry with me
All systems go!
6. A Grave Mistake (3:04)
Here lies the lifeless bride and groom
Till death do us part came far too soon
Buildings burn and people die
All of the time

But I heard that you reap what you sew
So around and around we go
And when you see my face you'll know

You can't save yourself or save your soul
When you meet the man whose life you stole
With weathered wings and broken bones
A flight for the fallen, flies the crow
You can't save yourself

These vengeful thoughts trapped underneath
Rage, scorn, misery
Payback for what you took from me
Hope, love, sanity

I've heard that you reap what you sew
So here's to believing in ghosts
Now when you see my face you'll know

You can't save yourself or save your soul
When you meet the man whose life you stole
With weathered wings and broken bones
A flight for the fallen, flies the crow

No forgiveness, just farewell
From the match made in heaven
You sent straight to hell
No forgiveness, no escape
May you rest in pieces
For your grave mistake

For your grave mistake

You can't save yourself or save your soul
When you meet the man whose life you stole
With weathered wings and broken bones
A flight for the fallen, flies the crow
You can't save yourself
No you can't save yourself

For your grave mistake
You can't save yourself
7. Rocking The Boat (feat. Jeremy Schwartz) (4:06)
[Intro]
SHARK!

[Sound Bit]
Coast guard this is the Orca do you read me? Four and a half miles, two east of Amity Island. This is an official distress call, over

[Verse 1]
We all know a place that appears so sublime
But if you dive a little deeper, you'll hit the real bottom line
The head of the town is out there flashing his teeth
A telltale sign about to surface that there's a monster lurking underneath

[Pre-Chorus]
They're thrashing around but found
They can't contain a leak
Cause I've got a fish to fry
That's feeding on the weak
So cast a line for every life they took
It's time to set the hook

[Chorus]
We're all just floating in a shallow grave
Buoyed by the blood of the masses
That they'd rather sell out that instead of save
We're all so starving that we've taken the bait
You think we would've learned from the past that
The predator will soon become the prey

[Verse 2]
We all know a place
Where the calm flees at night
And safe is just a shadow
So we swim towards the light
If this voyage of valor put us on deck for death
We'll compare scars with each other
Until our very last breath, yeah!

[Pre-Chorus]
They're thrashing around but found
They can't contain a leak
Cause I've got a fish to fry
That's feeding on the weak
So reel it in with every trick in the book
It's time to set the hook

[Chorus]
We're all just floating in a shallow grave
Buoyed by the blood of the masses
That they'd rather sell out that instead of safe
We're all so starving that we've taken the bait
You think we would've learned from the past that
The predator will soon become the prey

[Sound Bit]
Yeah, coastguard this is the orca again, we need you out here now. The boat is under attack. It's a great white, over
Roger that, ETA fifteen minutes, over
In fifteen minutes we'll be fucking shark bait

[Bridge]
Last chance to make amends
So try to stay afloat
With sharks like you among us
We'll need a bigger boat
Sold us down the river
So the rich could stay rich
But now you've been caught
So smile, you son of a bitch

[Breakdown]
Sinking with the burning embers
Should be any sign of doubt
That this tale will be remembered
And the tide will forever flush them out

[Chorus]
We're all just floating in a shallow grave
Buoyed by the blood of the masses
That they'd rather sell out that instead of safe
We're all so starving that we've taken the bait
You think we would've learned from the past that
The predator will soon become the prey
8. Enjoy Your Slay (feat. Sam Kubrick) (4:15)
Going down, sir?
Indeed
Here you are...

Plagued by the past and down a badly beaten path
Lies a place, one of a kind
Cursed by a blinding light that no one can outshine

A mess of a man, his fate unknown
One drink away from a broken home
He can't give up but can't go on like this
A five year old longs to be free
From visions he can't help but see
And a mother who can't understand

That the writing on my walls will tell you how it's gonna be
Oh can't you see that you're just rats within my halls
To hell with hospitality (and we all scream):

Welcome to your last resort don't overlook the past
If you need help finding piece of mind don't hesitate to axe
They can see the vacancy so say goodbye to sanity
We're here to help you on your way
Thank you very much enjoy your slay

Face down in the lap luxury
Fuck the comforts of reality
Turn the page, disengage and destroy
All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy
I'm not gonna hurt you
I'm just gonna bash your fucking brains in

Now the fun has just begun
And one by one your wife and son
Hang in the web you've spun as family ties come undone
Redrum!

The writing on my walls will tell you how it's gonna be
So follow me
Cross out the words "do not disturb"
On the doors of depravity (and we all scream):

Welcome to your last resort don't overlook the past
If you need help finding piece of mind don't hesitate to axe
They can see the vacancy so say goodbye to sanity
We're here to help you on your way
Thank you very much enjoy your slay

An identical scream from 217
Slashes to ashes
Dust to dust
Hey Danny... come play with us!

Come drain or shine
I'll hit your whole bloodline
Shall we tell old Jack what he's won?
A chopping spree around the family tree
Where you can hang once all our work is done

The writing on my walls will tell you how it's gonna be
Oh can't you see (that we all scream):

Welcome to your last resort don't overlook the past
If you need help finding piece of mind don't hesitate to axe
They can see the vacancy so say goodbye to sanity
We're here to help you on your way
Thank you very much, and please do keep in touch

Enjoy your slay!
9. Freak Flag (3:18)
[Verse 1]
We're thought to be like them
Thought to know a place
We kept the pace but we're done pretending
We'll fall blindly through the fairy tale endings

[Pre-Chorus 1]
They tried to sell us the convenience and conformity
Those are the images of the man that I want to be
Rise up if you agree

[Chorus]
And let your freak flags fly
We’re all messed up inside
And forced to act like everything's alright
Wave those freak flags high
Rejected 'til we die
To hell with tomorrow
Just let your freak flags fly tonight

[Verse 2]
We're taught to fall in line
Taught to know the rules
We've played the fools and we're over the laughter
They can't keep us up in the happily ever afters

[Pre-Chorus 2]
They can't sell us on convenience and conformity
Those are the properties of the people that we want to be
Rise up if you agree

[Chorus]
And let your freak flags fly
We’re all messed up inside
And forced to act like everything's alright
Wave those freak flags high
Rejected 'til we die
To hell with tomorrow
Just let your freak flags fly tonight

[Bridge]
We form a different mould
Stuck in a different skin
We will never back down
We will never fit in
A different breed
Stuck in a different skin
We will never back down
We will never fit in

[Chorus]
So let your freak flags fly
We’re all messed up inside
And forced to act like everything's alright
Wave those freak flags high
Rejected 'til we die
To hell with tomorrow
Let your freak flags fly
We’re all messed up inside
And forced to act like everything's alright
Wave those freak flags high
Rejected 'til we die
To hell with tomorrow
Just let your freak flags fly tonight
10. The World In My Hands (feat. Tony Lovato) (3:50)
[Chorus]
Lost on my own
In search of something real
How cruel to be exposed
To everything that I can’t touch but still feel

[Verse 1]
How'd I end up here?
So uncomfortable
I'm a stranger in this body
The world's an ugly place
And that's a fact that fate has brought me
I had to disappear
So it would all just go away
Now the end is drawing near
And God I wish you would've stayed

[Pre-Chorus]
It cuts deep cause our hearts are still attached
A deadly touch spreads an itch that can't be scratched
Sometimes I wish it would all just fade to black
I can't go back

[Chorus]
Now I'm lost on my own
In search of something real
How cruel to be exposed
To everything that I can’t touch but still feel
Lost on my own
They'll never understand
How tragic to suppose
That I almost held the world in my hands

[Verse 2]
A captive beauty queen
So untouchable
In the town that has disowned me
Nice guys finish last
And that's a fact that she has shown me

[Pre-Chorus]
He made the cut but she deserves a better man
I won't rust like the liars and letterman
Hedge my bets 'cuz it can't hurt to pretend
Until the end

[Chorus]
Now I'm lost on my own
In search of something real
How cruel to be exposed
To everything that I can’t touch but still feel
Lost on my own
They'll never understand
How tragic to suppose
That I almost held the world in my hands

[Bridge]
So tell the town below
As death took hold
You watched helplessly
To hell with letting go
Cause when it snows
It falls to you from me
It falls to you from me

[Chorus]
Lost on my own
In search of something real
How cruel to be exposed
To everything that I can’t touch but still feel
Lost on my own
They'll never understand
How tragic to suppose
That I almost held the world in my hands

[Ending]
To hell with letting go
Cause when it snows
It falls to you from me
11. Merry Axe-Mas (3:18)
[Intro]
If you meet Santa Clause tonight boy
You better run for your life

[Verse 1]
T'was the night before Christmas
Was just five years old
My parents were butchered
In the blistering cold
He seemed jolly at first
In his suit stained with red
He let out a laugh
But then left us for dead

[Pre-Chorus]
That scene
So vicious
Taught me the meaning of Christmas
Punish the wicked
Don't ask for Santa's forgiveness

[Chorus]
You will believe in me
Slaughtered under the tree
Don't believe a witness
So much for a Merry Christmas
Now Santa's claws are out
The sinners scream and shout
Made sure the noose is yule-tide tight
So much for a silent night
A silent night

[Verse 2]
T'was just three years later
Now orphaned and bruised
When the hands of the holy inflicted abuse
Tied down and lashed
Singled out from the pack
Took my season's beatings
Now it's time to give back

[Pre-Chorus]
That scene
So vicious
Taught me the meaning of Christmas
Punish the wicked
Don't ask for Santa's forgiveness

[Chorus]
You will believe in me
Slaughtered under the tree
Don't believe a witness
So much for a Merry Christmas
Now Santa's claws are out
The sinners scream and shout
Made sure the noose is yule-tide tight
So much for a silent night
A silent night

[Sound Bit]
So now I'm slashing through the snow
And the hearse is on its way
With the mistletoe tags
Thank God it's Christmas day

[Bridge]
I'm making my list
You're a slave to your vice
So I'm gonna find out who's naughty or nice
It's time to wreck the halls
Let nothing you dismay
Santa's taking out the trash
IT'S FUCKING GARBAGE DAY!
Taking out the trash
Garbage day is today
Taking out the trash
Garbage day is today

[Chorus]
You will believe in me
Slaughtered under the tree
Don't believe a witness
So much for a Merry Christmas
Now Santa's claws are out
The sinners scream and shout
Made sure the noose is yule-tide tight
So much for a silent night
A silent night

[Ending]
Fa-la-la-la-la
Feliz navi-dead!
12. Love Bites (feat. Chelsea Talmadge) (3:00)
[Intro: Spencer Charnas]
I'm tearing London limb from limb
It's tearing me apart, but it’s us or them
So howl at the moon, oh how can it be?
The softer the skin the sharper the teeth
Yeah!

[Verse 1: Spencer Charnas]
So call the nurse, 'cause it's worse when I'm alone
I've fallen prey to a curse I can't disown
Is it all in my head?
When I'm at hands of [?] who's filled with doubt
But this is love I can't live without
(Despite the soul of the dead)

[Chorus: Spencer Charnas]
So howl at the moon, oh how can it be?
The softer the skin the sharper the teeth
With nowhere to go, nothing to believe
I'm counting on beauty to kill off the beast

[Verse 2: Chelsea Talmadge & Spencer Charnas]
You bit off more than you can chew
But you taste too good to be true
Safe in my arms you will lay, cause every dog has its day
(Dog has its day)

[Chorus: Chelsea Talmadge & Spencer Charnas]
So howl at the moon, oh how can it be?
The softer the skin the sharper the teeth
With nowhere to go, nothing to believe
I'm counting on beauty to kill off the beast
So howl at the moon, oh how can it be? (Oh how can it be?)
The softer the skin the sharper the teeth
With nowhere to go, nothing to believe (nothing to believe)
I'm counting on beauty to kill off the beast
So just put me down
13. IT Is the End (feat. JR Wasilewski, Buddy Schaub, Will Salazar) (4:48)
[Intro]
Allow me to introduce myself
They call me the dancing clown
And you must be Georgie
Did you hear my circus was in town?
It seems I have your boat here
The storm blew her off track
Just reach your hands down here and take it
If you really want it back
Oh, Georgie
You can trust me sweet child
Step right this way
I'm at your service with a smile
Believe me
IT's nothing to fear
When I feast on your flesh
You'll see that we all float down...
HERE!

[Verse 1]
Pick through the past you'll see
I'm living history
Come one come all
'Cuz I'm starved for the kill
Prey on the pure at heart
Feed on their body parts
I've got some big fucking shoes to fill
Follow me and I'll show you the truth
Devastation as the deadlights defuse
Follow me and I'll show you the truth
Face down in the fountain of youth

[Pre-Chorus]
Just like Georgie
IT's all out of hand
So join me
DA-DA-DA-DA-DA-DA-DA

[Chorus]
Catch me at the big top
Buried underground
You know I'm not clowning around
Even with a smile
From ear to fucking ear
IT's everything you know
IT's everything you fear
A carnival of carnage
That much you assume
But it's more than just a costume and red balloons
IT's coming back around every 27 years
IT's everything you know
IT's everything you fear
So let go

[Verse 2]
You know what makes me smile?
Devoured juveniles
Their innards tangled in my twisted grin
Chuckled so hard I choked
Call it an inside joke
They say that laughter's the best medicine
Follow me and I'll show you the truth
Face down in the fountain of youth

[Pre-Chorus]
Just like Georgie
IT's all out of hand
So join me
DA-DA-DA-DA-DA-DA-DA

[Chorus]
Catch me at the big top
Buried underground
You know I'm not clowning around
Even with a smile
From ear to fucking ear
IT's everything you know
IT's everything you fear
A carnival of carnage
That much you assume
But it's more than just a costume and red balloons
IT's coming back around every 27 years
IT's everything you know
IT's everything you fear
So let go

[Outro]
IT is the end
IT's come again
Believe IT or not
You'll all disappear
IT cannot be fought
We all float down here
IT is the end
IT's come again
Believe IT or not
You'll all disappear
IT cannot be fought
We all float down here
IT is the end
IT's come again
Believe IT or not
You'll all disappear
IT cannot be fought
We all float down here
IT is the end
IT's come again
Believe IT or not
You'll all disappear
IT cannot be fought
We all float down here
