You ****ing parasite
I'll beat you til you die
It hides inside me [Repeat: x3]
Sic semper tyrannus

Everyday you decay
In chains, dismayed
Broken soul, splintered bones
Ghost children
In their graves
Sold as slaves
Greedy flames
Life is a sacrifice
A 7 inch slice
The still-born waste
Of a suicide Christ

I'm learning to like the pain
I hope you die, we broken people [Repeat: x2]
It's hides inside me [Repeat: x2]

Everything is dead
Every day is black
Word becomes flesh
Bloodied, burned, and scratched
Everything dead
Every day is black
The face I wore was yours
As I launched this self-attack

In pain
A bullet in the head, a knife wound in the
I cried, as my innocence died [Repeat: x2]

Death will have mercy
I won't
Here in the serial killer holy land
It's not over [Repeat: x2]
We've only just begun
Like a fetus on the floor
Like an addict wanting more
Like a sex slave
Crying and sore
I want to smell the violence
I need to see you bleed
Take me inside your soul
And make it weep for me
I need to believe

I will sit, I will wait, I will make, no mistake [Repeat: x2]
From slave to master
I've become the hydra
More heads and venom
It hides
Hooks and splinters [Repeat: x2]
It hurts
