I sold my soul
so long ago

& now I’m alone
here in the palace of sadness & madness & bone

[V1.]

then she said
to the ghosts in her head

I will find the edge
I will force my fingers in

I will sip from the slit
I will rip you to shreds
I will rip you to shreds

[chorus]

rape the nun
kill the saint
wear their skin

there is no way to escape
there is no way
you’ll escape

[V2.]

& I know
the road of truth is lined

with crucified criminals
& suicides

so maybe I’ll just cut my throat
maybe I’ll make you smile when I choke

hybrid creature of decay
there is no possible
way you’ll escape

[chorus]

rape the nun
kill the saint
wear their skin

there is no way to escape
there is no way
you’ll escape

[tunnel]

“yesterday upon the stair
I met a man who wasn’t there

he wasn’t there again today
I wish that man would go away
I wish that man go…”

shadow man standing in my room
smearing conspiracies for me to consume

shadow man has a plan just wait & see
you’ll all be sorry for fucking with me

(come out & plaaaay)

shadow man
shadow man
please go away

shadow man
shadow man
please go away
I really don’t feel like playing today!

I’m not ignoring you
I’m just plotting your doom

in a world that’s ready to drown
don’t stop-we have you now!

[chorus]

rape the nun
kill the saint
wear their skin

there is no way to escape
there is no way
you’ll escape
