1. Underneath My Skin (3:46)
Choking on air, something's making me breathe
All these memories I had, they are taking them from me

There's something inside of me
This is my time again
This is the right time
But I get there's something within

Something's crawling underneath my skin, I fear
Something's dying, rotting deep within
Something's crawling underneath my skin, I fear
Something's dying, I will not give in

Locked in my head while my sins are on display
Every time that I atone, they come back attacking me

There's something inside of me
This is my time again
This is the right time
But I get there's something within

Something's crawling underneath my skin, I fear
Something's dying, rotting deep within
Something's crawling underneath my skin, I fear
Something's dying, I will not give in

(I will not give in)
(I will not give in)
(I will not give in)
(I will not give in)

We search to find a place inside our head
Defy the urge to die, to live again
It's time to kill this thing that thrives inside

Something's crawling underneath my skin, I fear
Something's dying, rotting deep within
Something's crawling underneath my skin, I fear
Something's dying, I will not give in
2. Final Days (4:37)
Hate runs through me like a vein
It's coming for me as I watch them march down this false line
I'm grabbing all the anger I can find

Alarming in this present phase
Destroying all these places in my mind
We're living in our final days
We're bombing all the places left to hide

Safe, some place so far away
Without the burning cities of the men who commit their crimes
Unruly living in the end of time, time, time

Alarming in this present phase
Destroying all these places in my mind
We're living in our final days
We're bombing all the places left to hide

Alarming in this present phase
Destroying all these places in my mind
We're living in our final days
We're bombing all the places left to hide
3. Everyone (2:53)
I walk into this place 'cause I need help
See they don't want me 'cause I'm not like them
They don't like me 'cause I frighten them
They don't want me 'cause I'm not like them

Live the lies of the priest of the Son
And the God that has gone and left us idle
Perfect crimes of the church of the lamb
That was left at the stake for its survival
As the wind of the wings of the man
At his heart that has come to educate you
You're so blind full of faith from the Son
That you choose to engulf and engage everyone

I fall quick from grace, if I don't pay them
They won't let me in if I disobey them
They don't like me 'cause I frighten them
They don't want me 'cause I'm not like them

Live the lies of the priest of the Son
And the God that has gone and left us idle
Perfect crimes of the church of the lamb
That was left at the stake for its survival
As the wind of the wings of the man
At his heart that has come to educate you
You're so blind full of faith from the Son
That you choose to engulf and engage everyone

Look at them, they really need me
One more soul assimilated
Silent judgment feeds them now
One more soul is never-ending
Thus control your free thinking
Questions are never allowed
What makes you so pure?
Flaunting this false cure
I will never bow down
Bow down!

Live the lies of the priest of the Son
And the God that has gone and left us idle
Perfect crimes of the church of the lamb
That was left at the stake for its survival
Its survival
Its survival

Everyone, everyone
Its survival
Everyone, everyone
4. Happiness (2:58)
So you think you can walk away now?
Nothing's happening, everything's fine
It's the same old situation
Each time you get the last word
I turn away blind

You were never there for me at all
You always gotta tear me down
You, you take the best of me, it's gone
My happiness is never allowed

So you really wanna do this shit now?
You wanna take another shot at my pride?
One of these days you'll work for ricochet
I've been tearing off your high

You were never there for me at all
You always gotta tear me down
You, you take the best of me, it's gone
My happiness is never allowed

(Not allowed...)
My happiness is never allowed!
My happiness is never allowed!
My happiness is never allowed!

You were never there for me at all
You always gotta tear me down
You, you take the best of me, it's gone
My happiness is never allowed

My happiness is never allowed
...
5. Your God (2:49)
They make you feel like you're alive again
They mask the truth and gather
Running won't change it from within
Which leaves the question...

What's in it for you?
(Nothing but lies and blame)
What's in it for you?
(That nothing could want them again)

Now I don't wanna be
Your God has abandoned me
I wholeheartedly try
Your God is killing me

They cut your hair and make you fear
Anything that ever mattered
If they could they'd tie you to the stake again
Burning, I hear their laughter

What's in it for you?
(Nothing but lies and blame)
What's in it for you?
(That nothing could want them again)

Now I don't wanna be
Your God has abandoned me
I wholeheartedly try
Your God is killing me

So every time I look around I see
I see their crosses
Haunting my every movement
I can't do this
Foolish savior, fuck their bullshit

Now I don't wanna be
Your God has abandoned me
I wholeheartedly try
Your God is killing me
6. Walk On By (3:41)
All the things that I do
All the hell I've been through
It somehow doesn't matter
I see the light in the booth
Wishing I came right through
Right through, right through
Right through

I'm walking on the dark side, I can't get away
I'm flirting with disaster, it's the price I pay
Feelings of hopelessness engulf me every day
Yet I walk on by, walk on by

All I do to get through
All this pain is subdued
It always comes back smarter
I see the dark in it too
Freaking out, I can't move
Can't move, can't move
Can't move

I'm walking on the dark side, I can't get away
I'm flirting with disaster, it's the price I pay
Feelings of hopelessness engulf me every day
Yet I walk on by, walk on by
Yet I walk on by, walk on by
Yet I walk on by, walk on by

And they're searching for me
Trying to steal and dissect my time
Always they're banging and constantly screaming inside
And they're ripping at me
And they're taking my happiness, making it worthless
And they're leaving me here to die

I feel them laughing at me
I feel them stabbing at me
I feel the pressure inside
Building till I try to break free
I can't believe what I've done
I should have never begun
I feel the pressure inside
Telling me that I cross your mind

I feel them laughing at me
I feel them stabbing at me
I feel them laughing at me
I feel them stabbing at me

I'm walking on the dark side, I can't get away
I'm flirting with disaster, it's the price I pay
Feelings of hopelessness engulf me every day
Yet I walk on by, walk on by
Yet I walk on by, walk on by
Yet I walk on by, walk on by
7. The Secret (3:31)
I watch breathing, I can't believe you sleep so calm
With all the dirty things that you've done to me
My eyes are a curse, you see
'Cause they see an angel and not the demon child you've been
Fucking with my head, once again it seems
Still I'm willing to believe

The crying out at night
It's not about what's wrong
The secret just slipped outside to hide
As this life moves on, I can't hold on
And I feel like I can't ever get over it

And your eyes they flicker, you must be dreaming evil dreams
Are you eating someone's heart, is it what it seems
You smile wouldn't make them scream
But I know your sadness, there has to be a better way
Someone get me some kind of priest to pray
Some kind of words to say

The crying out at night
It's not about what's wrong
The secret just slipped outside to hide
As this life moves on, I can't hold on
And I feel like I can't ever get over it

You will kick at the base
I will take it
You make a promise
You always break it
I've lived in this shadow shame
For too long

So why am I doing
Why do I choose to stay
These things just don't get better somehow

The crying out at night
It's not about what's wrong
The secret just slipped outside to hide
As this life moves on, I can't hold on
And I feel like I can't ever get over it
And I feel like I can't ever get over it
And I feel like I can't ever get over it
8. Basic Needs (6:14)
I may not act like I'm torn apart
But blood don't look deep red when the dark
Surrounds me
I may be frozen numb from the fight
The pain belongs to me
But your lie surrounds me
Surrounds me, surrounds me

I don't feel hunger, I don't need air
There's blood in my veins 'cause I know you are there
I don't need shelter, nothing at all
The reason I'm here
Don't you know that you're all my basic needs

I may be crippled by my own mind
Your silence haunts my head
And they always find me
I may be used to feeling this way
Almost forgot remembering to remind me
Remind me, remind me

I don't feel hunger, I don't need air
There's blood in my veins 'cause I know you are there
I don't need shelter, nothing at all
The reason I'm here
Don't you know that you're all my basic needs

I don't feel hunger, I don't need air
There's blood in my veins 'cause I know you are there
I don't need shelter, nothing at all
The reason I'm here
Don't you know that you're all my basic needs
My basic needs
My basic needs
9. Medicate (3:57)
Your light shines so black
I can see my flaws plain as day
I deal with things inside
That would make anyone else scream with pain
Come on, run away with me
For now, 'cause it don't last
Come on, run away with me
Let's run from our past

Lies come to pass
Veils of black surround me
Nothing ever lasts
I medicate everyday, to make it go away
I try too hard
Try to make my life count in some way
I medicate everyday
I medicate it away
(I medicate it away)

I'm staring at a face that I
Can't even recognize
Been burning so long in hell
That it took that long to realize

Lies come to pass
Veils of black surround me
Nothing ever lasts
I medicate everyday, to make it go away
I try too hard
Try to make my life count in some way
I medicate everyday
I medicate it away

I like this little pill that numbs the pain
I like this little pill that runs through my veins
I like this little pill that numbs the pain
I like this little pill running through my veins
I like this little pill that numbs the pain
Oh, this little pill that runs through my veins
Oh, this little pill, this little pill, this little pill
That numbs the pain

Lies come to pass
Veils of black surround me
Nothing ever lasts
I medicate everyday, to make it go away
I try too hard
Try to make my life count in some way
I medicate everyday
I medicate it away
I medicate it away
I medicate it away
I medicate it away
I medicate it away
10. Please Tell Me (4:28)
You're everything I wanted, this tragedy is mine
I hold on and I fight it but always, stupidity is blind
I fight for a reason, maybe that's the blame
But I also know one thing, we will never be the same

So please tell me what the fuck is going on
You keep me hanging on, I just wanna know that I'm not wrong
So please tell me what the fuck is going on
This shit keeps dragging on, I just wanna be where I belong

You're everything I hated, it always ends the same
Hurt's premeditated, it's constant straight to your vain
I search for a reason, I know I hate the pain
I gotta know this one thing, is it me, that's insane

So please tell me what the fuck is going on
You keep me hanging on, I just wanna know that I'm not wrong
So please tell me what the fuck is going on
This shit keeps dragging on, I just wanna be where I belong

So please tell me what the fuck is going on (What the fuck is going on)
You keep me hanging on (It's dragging on)
I just wanna know that I'm not wrong (I wanna be where I belong)
So please tell me what the fuck is going on (What the fuck is going on)
This shit keeps dragging on (It's dragging on)
I just wanna be where I belong
11. What You Believe (4:05)
What you believe is the religion
And your entire devotion is dedicated to believing fact
And there is no room for God in it
And there is no room for God in it
And there is no room for God in it
And there is no room for God in it

They're lying, this is the greatest story ever told
They're trying, to keep us away from the secrets they hold
This is disgusting, they keep the human race in check and they do what they're told
We are realizing, there are some questions that can't be answered or be told

What you believe is your religion
What you receive is what you're given
I don't need anyone from above telling me what to do
I'm gonna do what I'm gonna do

This is disgusting, they keep the human race in check and they do what they're told
We are realizing, there are some questions that can't be answered or be told

What you believe is your religion
What you receive is what you're given
I don't need anyone from above telling me what to do
I'm gonna do what I'm gonna do

What is it that you can find
Building [?] inside
Putting all your trust in something
That you see [?] eye to eye

What is it that you can find
Building [?] inside
Putting all your trust in something
That you see [?] eye to eye

What you believe is your religion
What you receive is what you're given
I don't need anyone from above telling me what to do
I'm gonna do what I'm gonna do

What you believe is your religion
What you receive is what you're given
I don't need anyone from above telling me what to do
I'm gonna do what I'm gonna do
12. Gender (3:27)
I came in your window last night like a ghost (I want you)
And this invasion was never supposed (To hurt you)
Just need to breathe you, observe you, dissect you
Protect you from yourself, you understand
I know what you know but still I demand (To be you)

Can I wear your skin?
Can I have it now?
Such a perfect soul and I wanna take it from you
Take it from you, take it from you, take it from you
Turn my gender down

Well do your makeup, I'm touching your clothes (I won't break them)
Look at your little shoes locked in a row (Can I take it?)
Just wanna feel 'em and smell 'em
Caress 'em, and press 'em to my flesh, you understand
And isn't stealing if I come to confess (Wish I was you)

Can I wear your skin?
Can I have it now?
Such a perfect soul and I wanna take it from you
Take it from you, take it from you, take it from you
Turn my gender down

I'm sick of this situation
I've outgrown what I'm made of
I need a new motivation
Let's ride 'em on, I'll get off
Just need to breathe you, observe you, dissect you
Protect you from yourself, you understand
Just wanna peel 'em and smell 'em
Caress 'em, and press 'em to my flesh, and nothing less
I know my gender but still I demand
(To be you)

Can I wear your skin?
Can I have it now?
Such a perfect soul and I wanna take it from you
Take it from you, take it from you, take it from you
Turn my gender down
13. What It Is (3:54)
[from "American Satan" soundtrack]

Pretty soon you have to deal
With the truth behind the way you feel
And I'd rather never know

I would do anything anything
Not to bring who I am to meet me
This useless suffering
Ugly part of me is screwing me
As it feeds me

But it is what it is
You don't know how to live with what it is
But it is what it is
It may seem impossible
But I will embrace who I really am
If it's a son of a bitch or a terrified kid
Then that's what it is

Pretty soon you'll have to face
You're a virus called the human race
And I'll never never know

I have done everything everything
Not to feel what it is I'm feeling
This basement devil is kicking the ass
Of my angel on the ceiling

But it is what it is
You don't know how to live with what it is
But it is what it is
It may seem impossible
But I will embrace who I really am
If it's a son of a bitch or a terrified kid
Then that's what it is

Don't push me, don't kill me
What it is cause it is what it is
Don't play games, don't mess with
What it is cause it is what it is
Don't ask me, don't tell me
What it is cause it is what it is
Don't push me, don't kill me
What it is cause it is what it is
Don't run from where you come from
Cause it is what it is
And I
And I

But it is what it is
You don't know how to live with what it is
But it is what it is
It may seem impossible
But I will embrace who I really am
If it's a son of a bitch or a terrified kid
Then that's what it is
