The Abominable Iron Sloth Lyrics

Submitted by level Besi Karat (2015-03-01)
1. Hats Made of Veal and That New Car Scent (3:15)
Repent, the end is near
Live life in shades of fear
For your doom is here
Entire nations
Have burned to the ground
Upon the hands
Of the Black Serpent Lord
You can sing this at my funeral
The prophets are all going blind
Because there is nothing left to see
The thieves are all going home
Because there is nothing left to steal.
2. I'd Rather Die Than Fly (2:51)
You'll never take me alive
Yet moments later
The bullet's in her head
I hope your god is laughing
I know your god is dead
Bullets in the backyard
Are conmen stealing time
Next time I'll take the subway
I'd rather die than fly
Celebrate birth
Which leads to life, hate and death
I speak in tongues and riddles
And I'll part with the colors of you.
3. I Am the Carcass (2:32)
I was born to drown
They'll never hang me
Blood makes a fine eyeshadow
Or so I've heard
I am the carcass
Into night I climb
I am the carcass
Two pennies for the reaper
Two pennies for your time
Two pennies for the blind man
Leading the slaughter line
They don't know what to do
So let's hear your fucking lie
Walk to China
The serpent is coming
Walk to China
Where homes are burning
I am the carcass
Into night I climb
I am the carcass
4. A Hot Pink Shell of My Former Self (3:16)
Degrees of seperation, seperate us all.
We line our streets of exaltation with fools gold.
Yet we stand alone.
Instant salvation offered to us all if we'll just take it into our souls.
Yet we stand alone.
You'll sing sad songs about love all night long.
When the sun comes, you'll watch them burn.
So let's sing now while the sun is still here burning,
Let's sing now.
5. Parasite Hilton and Other Flaws Inherent to Wealth (2:38)
Run slut run.
6. A Distant Pond from the Rivers of Human Limelight (4:19)
A chorus of candles
Sing their burning red hymn
Of shadow eating monsters
And godlike reflexes.
To the praise of mankind
And his glorious machines.
When you're spoonfed bullshit
From day one
You're not gonna know sugar
When it finally comes
And now your revelations are coming true.
They're coming true.
7. The Family That Slays Together, Stays Together (3:03)
They watch from swinging gallows
And rotting trees
The corpses of a thousand good men
All hanging like leaves
Drinking blood from the skulls of dead men
They march in double time
They move like locusts on land
Their prey is human kind
Flies to a carcass
Like men to a god
I'm writing my name
In blood on the wall
Until you come down upton them
As though you were the plague
And drive them into the sea.
8. Climax of a Nightmare (2:43)
I didn't look
But did it lurch at you?
So change it, til it's fine for you
It's right in front of you!
Two in the chest
One in the head
Climax of a nightmare
Underground, it's always easier
To hide from God.
Worship anything so low
Running toward you now
Shades of a distant dream
In futures yet unseen
The cells stand in line
March to distant time
I'm so scared it's coming
My great future of nothing.
9. Sailing to the Edge of the Earth (2:08)
