I'm suicidal and maniacal
To make it this far's a miracle I wouldn't wish upon my worst enemy
From the succubus to the incubus
From the non-believers to the bottom feeders
Their crosshairs focused tightly on me
They all want a little piece of me, a tiny piece of me
Just take it all and leave me alone
Just throw me on the pyre
Gas it up and light that **** fire
And let me burn inside of my hallowed soul

So lyrical, it's criminal
So criminal, I'm institutional
So institutional that I'll never escape
So I pray the lord my soul to keep

Tear my off my cross to bier
In my coffin, so cold
Take me from this cross I bear
In my cradle of bones

I'm irrational and piratical
Got no patience for satirical ****ing idiots that always strap me
I've got no trust
I'm here to bust all the deceivers and ****ing cheaters
My sympathy tank bone dry on empty
They'll take what they can get
They'll take every little bit
Everything that I hold dear to me
So **** 'em all
The liars, string 'em up and light that **** on fire
Then we cut 'em down and bury 'em deep

So lyrical, it's criminal
So criminal, I'm institutional
So institutional that I swallowed the key
And I pray the lord my soul to keep

Tear my off my cross to bier
In my coffin, so cold
Take me from this cross I bear
In my cradle of bones

I'm always the one high in the tree top
Life's hurricanes blow, but my will is a rock
So when the bough breaks and it all falls apart
Just carve your initials into my blackened heart

So lyrical, it's criminal
So criminal, I'm institutional
So institutional that I'll never escape
So let me go for Jesus sake

Tear my off my cross to bier
In my coffin, so cold
Take me from this cross I bear
In my cradle of bones
Rip me off my cross to bear
Buried in a shallow hole
Take me from this cross I bear
In my cradle of bones
