1. Rats (3:55)
Well Mrs. Pharmacist, I insist
Fix me up with something quick
I've been a bad little boy
And I think I'm getting sick
Sick to the bone, slave to the flesh
Better put on my Sunday's best
I've been a bad little boy, little boy

I've got a dirty, dirty, dirty, dirty, dirty little secret
And I'm not, not, not sure that I, I wanna keep it
So we feed ourselves lies to submit to the shadows
Cause we just wanna dance under our pretty perfect halos

Yeah
Everyone's got a secret
(What's yours? What's yours?)
Don't be shy, I'll never repeat it

Oh Mrs. Pharmacist, If I resist
Lock me up and bind my wrists
You've been a bad little girl, little girl
Close your eyes and listen close
I know just how much you love it
If you speak you lose your turn
So shut your mouth before I fuck it

I've got a dirty, dirty, dirty, dirty, dirty little secret
And I'm not, not, not sure that I, I wanna keep it
So we feed ourselves lies to submit to the shadows
Cause we just wanna dance under our pretty perfect halos

Everyone's got a secret
Tell me all about yours

Love. Hate.
Oh, how we play the game
Cold soul
No sense of self control
Love. Hate.
Unsure to pass or play
Cold soul, now we're out of control

Roses are red and my heart is black
We creep about the floor to indulge like rats
Enraptured, we walk to nurse our obsession
Cause the roles that we play are paved with cruel intentions

Well Mrs. Pharmacist
If you insist

I've got a dirty, dirty, dirty, dirty, dirty little secret
And I'm not, not, not sure that I, I wanna keep it
So we feed ourselves lies to submit to the shadows
And I just wanna shake you by your little perfect fucking halo

Everyone's got a secret
(What's yours? What's yours?)
Don't be shy, I'll never repeat it
2. Queen For Queen (3:22)
If you wanna soar with vultures, you'll have to swallow bone
The saint charade is over, plastic royalty exposed
You wanna play the victim to preach upon your throne
No semblance of virtue as your relevance erodes

We go queen for queen and move just like this

When you fall down will you back out
As you crawl through life with no crown
Though you preach love, you package lies
Just a pawn in a king's disguise

I never said I'm perfect, there's a guilt behind these eyes
So check me if it helps you fall asleep at night
Your skeletons are building, your closet's getting tight
Are you the prey or spider in the web of all your lies?

When you fall down will you back out
As you crawl through life with no crown
Though you preach love, you package lies
Just a pawn in a king's disguise

Don't stop breathing in the chemicals
You don't know humble though you play the role
Pockets of evergreen are your amphetamine
Please stop feeding what you can't control

You'll fall

You'll bend, you'll break, trip over your "fame"
Be careful, or you'll run your mouth off your face

When you fall down will you back out
As you crawl through life with no crown
Though you preach love, you package lies
Just a pawn in a king's disguise

Don't stop breathing in the chemicals
You don't know humble though you play the role
Pockets of evergreen are your amphetamine
Please stop feeding what you can't control
3. Necessary Evil (feat. Jonathan Davis) (3:48)
Strip off the weight of morality and check it at the door
I'll show you the worst in me (what I've become)
Blow out the candles, I need not a wish for I am everything
Now crawl to my boots and lick (kneel before me)

Imma have my cake and fucking eat you too

It's my party and I'll die when I want to
Die when I want to, die when I want to
The monster you've made is wearing the crown
I'll be the king and you'll be the clown
I'll take the blame, parade it around
You've made me the villain you can't live without

Reciting violence like poetry, no, you can't sit with us
Too fashionably plain (now say my name)
Forget everything you think you knew of who I used to be
I look much better as... as the enemy

Imma have my fucking cake and eat yours too

It's my party and I'll die when I want to
Die when I want to, die when I want to
The monster you've made is wearing the crown
I'll be the king and you'll be the clown
I'll take the blame, parade it around
You've made me the villain you can't live without

I want you low

I won't let you die
Keep you alive
Just to remind you of what you are not

It's my party, I'll die when I want to
You wanna see me fail, but I won't die for you

It's my party and I'll die when I want to
Die when I want to, die when I want to
The monster you've made is wearing the crown
I'll be the king and you'll be the clown
It's my party and I'll die when I want to
Die when I want to, die when I want to

I want you low

Imma have my cake and fucking eat you too
4. Soft (3:30)
You're mine, motherfucker!

Let me begin, envy's a sin
You'll have to find new words to invent
Cause I've heard your broken record
And I'm not impressed

I love when you talk, I just use it to drive me
I won't let your judgement define me
I'm not broken, so don't fix me
I want you to hate me

Tell me what you've lost, hang me on your cross
If you're so wise, then why are you so soft?
Do you leave your "throne" as you cast your stones?
I'm above living under your microscope

Go!
You're mine, motherfucker!

I'm insane, I'm "insane in the membrane"
I wanna fuck your face with a switchblade
I'm not broken, so don't fix me
I'll leave you behind me

Internet killed the video star
Internet killed the video star

Tell me what you've lost, hang me on your cross
If you're so wise, then why are you so soft?
Do you leave your "throne" as you cast your stones?
I'm above living under your microscope

Cry baby, cry baby
Did I just hear you whimper?
Cry baby, cry
Suck my middle fucking finger!

Cry baby, cry baby
What have you done lately?
Cry baby, cry baby
What have you done?

Tell me what you've lost, demonize my flaws
Do they call you when dumb needs a mascot?
Do you leave your "throne" as you cast your stones?
I'm above living under your microscope

You dilate
God of your existence
Begging me to listen
While you "pray"
Swallow in vain
Silver spoon religion
Closer from a distance

You're mine, motherfucker!

Cry baby, cry baby
Cry baby, cry baby

You're mine, motherfucker!
5. Untouchable (3:58)
They try to bend, they try to break me by design
But I am the nightmare that will haunt you in the light
If it’s war that you want… then I’m ready to play
And the world's gonna know my name
Know my name
Know my name
Know my

Through everywhere that I go
Every failure I’ve owned
Every crack in my bones
I'm untouchable
Like a sleeping grenade
Built to blow you away
Pull the pin I explode
I'm untouchable
I'm untouchable
I'm untouchable
I'm untouchable

Born underground I dug myself out from the dirt
With every scar I will avow to shake the Earth
Unless it's pain that you want, get the fuck out my way
'Cause the world's gonna scream my name
Scream my name
Scream my name
Scream my
6. Not My Type: Dead As F*ck 2 (4:22)
She's got no soul, heart black as coal
She's from Hollywood Forever, dug her out of a hole
And here we go again, spinnin' me in her web
She said "there's just no rest for the queen of the dead"

There's just no rest for the queen of the dead
There's just no rest for the queen...

Another trick to treat with candy apple dreams
Gonna rot her teeth cause I'm so sweet
One lick to rule them all
They crumble as they crawl

She loves me cause I like to give head like a zombie
Eat, eat, eat till her insides are on me
She loves me cause I give head like a zombie
Eat, eat, eat, and nobody's gonna stop me
And in the glow of the pale moonlight
She goes for a spin on my haunted hayride
Tried out the living but I don't believe the hype
Cause if she's got a pulse then she's not my type
Yeah, if she's got a pulse then she's not my type, yeah

If she's got a pulse then she's not my type, yeah
If she's got a pulse, if she's got a pulse

She's got a temper in stock, made of hemlock
Uses absinthe as a lip gloss
Death hawk, fresh New Rock's
She'll use your corpse as a catwalk

She'll use your corpse as a catwalk
She'll use your corpse

She loves me cause I like to give head like a zombie
Eat, eat, eat till her insides are on me
She loves me cause I give head like a zombie
Eat, eat, eat, and nobody's gonna stop me
And in the glow of the pale moonlight
She goes for a spin on my haunted hayride
Tried out the living but I don't believe the hype
Cause if she's got a pulse then she's not my type
If she's got a pulse then she's not my type

She'll use your corpse as a catwalk
Plays truth or dare in the mirror
Uses absinthe as a lip gloss
Undead, but won't shed a tear

She's my graveyard baby
She's my...

She loves me cause I like to give head like a zombie
Eat, eat, eat till her insides are on me
She loves me cause I give head like a zombie
Eat, eat, eat, and nobody's gonna stop me
And in the glow of the pale moonlight
She goes for a spin on my haunted hayride
Tried out the living but I don't believe the hype
Cause if she's got a pulse then she's not my type
If she's got a pulse then she's not my type

D-E-A-D
If she's got a pulse then she's not my...
7. The Ladder (4:17)
Isn't that what everyone wants to know
Pretty new girl walks into a room, everyone's head turns
Looks her up and down wondering who's she fucking
Who could she fuck
And how high could she climb
And is it higher than me

Tragedy, a poisonous lover
You infiltrate to destroy
Vanity, a cancer unforgiving
A charlatan with poise

Fool me once, enough is enough
Was I more than a step on your way up?
Hollowed out, I've no semblance of love
Now you're just somebody that I used to fuck
(Now you're just somebody that I used to fuck)

Lest we learn, the tables turn
So I'm betting out, I'm betting out
You can be the prey in your masquerade
But I'm getting out, I'm getting out

There's nothing left to repair

Ravenous, self-righteous, and lurid
But how much more till you break?
Scavenger, so fucking undeserving
You slither in just to take what you can take

Counterfeit, I'm calling your bluff
Was I more than just a step on your way up?
Now you'll burn and your flesh out of luck
Now you're just somebody that I used to fuck
(Now you're just somebody that I used to fuck)

Lest we learn, the tables turn
So I'm betting out, I'm betting out
You can be the prey in your masquerade
But I'm getting out, I'm getting out
Against insight I fed your source of revenue
But now, it means nothing to me to mean anything to you
It means nothing

Open grave, I was too blind to see
That "love", spelled to you is
"F-A-M-E"

You fuck your way up the ladder
Going down on your way to the top
Do your arms ever tire?
Or do they heal while you climb with your mouth?
Delete everything
Sever the yearning, you can keep the fucking ring
Delete everything
You can keep the fucking ring

Lest we learn, the tables turn
So I'm betting out, I'm betting out
You can be the prey in your masquerade
But I'm getting out
Against insight I fed your source of revenue
But now, it means nothing to me to mean anything to you
Nothing left to repair
8. Voices (3:44)
Voices in my head again
Trapped in a war inside my own skin
They're pulling me under
Go!

I've swallowed myself but the fever remains
I'm numb to the pleasure but still feel the pain
If I showed you my soul would you cover your eyes?
If I told you the truth would you dare me to lie?

I keep it all inside because I know the man is everything but kind

Voices in my head again
Beating me in a war I can't win
I can hear them now
Trapped in a game inside my own skin
And I don't know myself anymore
They're pulling me under

Voices
Voices

As I walk through this valley of shadows and death
I curse not the wicked, I praise not the blessed
If I told you the truth, you'd beg me to change
If fear were a currency, you'd own the bank

Voices in my head again
Beating me in a war I can't win
I can hear them now
Trapped in a game inside my own skin
And I don't know myself anymore
They're pulling me under

Voices

I don't want to live
So callous and frozen
Ugly and hopeless
I don't want to live forever
I just want to live right now
You can't take it from me

Voices in my head again
Head again

Voices in my head again
Beating me in a war I can't win
I can hear them now
Trapped in a game inside my own skin
And I don't know myself anymore
They're pulling me under

Voices
(They're pulling me under)
Voices
They're pulling me under
Voices

Voices

I keep it all inside because I know the man is everything but kind
I keep it all inside because I know the man is everything but kind
9. Loud (F*ck It) (3:42)
You gotta be loud
You gotta be rude
So the world can hear you
You gotta be crass
You gotta be cold
It’s everything we know
Turn it up, turn it up now!

Another day, a double shot of hate
Drink it up like gasoline
Underpaid, you graduate
To build somebody else’s dream

With a noose as a tie…
Do you fantasize of a much different life?
The fix for who they want you to be
Directly streamed to your TV

And when they turn their backs on you…

You gotta be loud
You gotta be rude
So the world can hear you
You gotta be crass
You gotta be cold
It’s everything we know
Turn it up, turn it up now
Loud
Rude
When nobody hears you
You gotta stand up
You gotta commit
Say “Fuck It”, make the best of it

A broken home you’re trying to mend
You’ve got one day left to pay the rent
We’re not sure, but we believe in the lie…
That it’ll all be fine, when we die

It’s so easy to grant the mirror
Power to control what you want to erase
Don’t become another victim
“Put a smile on that face”

You gotta be loud
You gotta be rude
So the world can hear you
You gotta be crass
You gotta be cold
It’s everything we know
Turn it up, turn it up now
Loud
Rude
When nobody hears you
You gotta stand up
You gotta commit
Say “fuck it”, make the best of it

The money’s in the treatment, baby, not in the cure
So they fuel your pain with fear and shame and then hand you a brochure
The money’s in the treatment, baby, not in the cure
So they build you up to watch you fall and then beg for an encore

What are you waiting for?
What are you waiting for?

You gotta be...

You gotta be loud
You gotta be rude
So the world can hear you
You gotta be crass
You gotta be cold
It’s everything we know
Turn it up, turn it up now
Loud
Rude
When nobody hears you
You gotta stand up
You gotta commit
Say “fuck it”, make the best of it

Make the best of it
Fuck it, what are you waiting for?
Another day, a double shot of hate
It’s everything we know
Drink it up like gasoline
Fuck it, make the best of it
10. 570 (4:31)
GO!
BLEAGH!

Burn it down, brick by brick. Made in 2006
Lost and found, losing grip, I needed this
Question me not, for I gave up everything.
Forget me not, cause I’ve not forgotten what this means.

Strip me down, tear me apart, you’ll find one theme left.
No sign of stopping till my veins rust.
Strip me down, tear me apart, you’ll find one thing left.
I fucking know where I came from.

...And nothing can replace those lessons learned,
As I stood with my brothers on the side of the road.
No longer haunted by the skeletons.
No longer haunted by the past.

For so long, it’s all I’ve known
I’m crossing over the undertow.
For so long no one was listening
Determined to make their deaf ears ring.

Miles repeat. My worst enemy... is me.
But then 4 soon became 6
To shatter the canvas

Handed nothing. Loss, pulling the strings
Outlived the dead trends
United by distance

For so long, it’s all I’ve known
I’m crossing over the undertow.
For so long no one was listening
Determined to make their deaf ears ring.

I've been to hell and back, with no promise of return.
So I made friends with fire, to keep from getting burned.
No money, no sleep. Dedication
10 years on the road this is sacred.
And when I’m facing a wall, I do not quit.
...Cause if you mean it, you will make it.

Pulled apart in a world so demanding.
I’m still here, still standing
I’ve sweat blood from Stockholm to Scranton
Still here, still standing.

You can always rinse the surface, but the stain will remain.

For so long, it’s all I’ve known
I’m crossing over the undertow.
For so long no one was listening
I did my time.

You live, you learn, you defy the terms, but this house will be my home.
Beguiled, betrayed, it’s the price we pay, as trust will be our tomb.

If you mean it, you'll make it...

BLEAGH!
11. Hourglass (3:45)
I've watched the whole world drowning in chemicals
Dissociative but it takes its toll
Can I surpass time or would I start to rust
Depreciating, collecting dust
And I fear myself as I fall away
In a cold deluded sense of fate
When the nightmares come and the doubt sets in
Will the fever break, or will I burn from within?

It's too late to feel, I've lost my breath
With the hands of time around my neck
Am I more than the pen that wrote the past
Or am I just the sand enslaved by the hourglass

Will I live again or will I fade to black?
Dehumanizing when the heart attacks
Will I expire before my dreams unfold?
But if the future's so bright the path should glow

As the walls melt and the light fades
I'm letting quicksand take me
As the walls melt and the light fades
I'm letting quicksand take me

It's too late to feel, I've lost my breath
With the hands of time around my neck
Am I more than the pen that wrote the past
Or am I just the sand enslaved by the hourglass

If you look beyond the blindfold
You'll find the hole in my soul
One fear, one mind
No hope, no time
If you look beyond the blindfold
You'll find the hole
I'm on the edge of my seat
Holding out for a sign
Trying to rewrite the storyline (in my soul)

It's too late to feel, I've lost my breath
With the hands of time around my neck
Am I more than the pen that wrote the past
Or am I just the sand encased in the hourglass
It's too late to feel, I've lost my breath
Hands of time around my neck
Am I just the pen that wrote the past
Or just the sand encased in the hourglass

Fear is not my fate
Fear is not my fate
12. Eternally Yours (5:12)
Blow the bridge to the past
Wipe the fingerprints
Melt your heart encased in wax
Seal it with a kiss

Our fate engraved
Scar enslaved
As we mutually destruct
Repose, my love, I've sinned enough for the both of us

In the name of love...

I'm ready to bury all of my bones
I'm ready to lie but say I won't
So tell me your secrets
And join me in pieces
To rot in this garden made of stones

Eternally yours
Eternally yours

I feed like you taught me and selflessly swallow
We coalesce in darkness, so selfishly hollow
Examine the wreckage
Writhing in tempo
Invisible anguish casting a shadow

And in the name of love...

I'm ready to bury all of my bones
I'm ready to lie but say I won't
So tell me your secrets
And join me in pieces
To rot in this garden made of stones

Eternally yours
Eternally yours

As we rest in pieces, though I know not your name
I would suffer forever to absolve all your pain

And in the name of love...

I'm ready to bury all of my bones
I'm ready to lie but say I won't
So tell me your secrets
And join me in pieces
To rot in this garden made of stones

I'm ready to bleed to make amends
And sleep in this dirt we call our bed
So tell me your secrets
And join me in pieces
To fall and rewrite the bitter end

Eternally yours
Eternally yours
Eternally yours
Eternally yours
Eternally yours

I'm more than willing to rot in hell with you

I'm ready to bury all of my bones
I'm ready to lie but say I won't
So tell me your secrets
And join me in pieces
To rot in this garden made of stones

I'm ready to bleed to make amends
And sleep in this dirt we call our bed
So tell me your secrets
And join me in pieces
To fall and rewrite the bitter end

Eternally yours
