Dark Lyrics


1. You Ain't No Family

I am running faster.
Faster than you can believe.
You think you could just
Grow into something new.
I think there's something you should know
I think there's something you should know
Staring into a wall
I think there's something you should know
I didn't pay to become this way
My head throbs
Til it bursts
There is something inviting
About staring into a wall
Covered in lead
You just want to jump into it
Diabolical minds think alike
Somewhere you don't belong
And the smell of an unwashed dog
No more licks on the lips from now on
Some things don't last forever
Somewhere you don't belong
Hope it takes you
Getting away with murder
Staring at a wall

2. White Water In The Morning

It's all happening
It's all starting again
So cover your hair in your eyes
I am sorry I didn't notice him
Standing there
He's over behind the books
Startling man
His mouth's wide open
But there's no sound coming from his throat
I'm playing around with dirty finger
It's getting to the point again
We're all going to perish out loud
That only you and I could hear
The wind will blow us over
Walking, radiating
The wind it's creating a pitch
Let it sing, let it sing
Let it sing to you in hell
Let 'em sing, let 'em sing
Let 'em sing to you in hell
Shadows cannot hold hands
Shadows exaggerate them
Shadows cannot hold hands

3. Danger In The Manger

To prove my reason for living this fucking life
I will not walk these streets unclothed tonight
You'll have to catch me
When I run away
I'm never coming back
When I run away from myself
Remind me to fill your heart with gunpowder
To end it all
Coming back when you're still
You shatter to pieces
I'm never coming back
I'm never coming back
I could scream
I could shout
I could set this room on
Let you out
And no one will tell me
Hail to this, plain to see
I could - not
I could - shatter
I could - better
I could - not
I could - shatter
Begging for a lift
What I'm packing put away
To prove the reason to fill your heart
Could give it a shot
To forgive myself

4. I'm Cold And There Are Wolves After Me

Never wanted to forget our last looks
A rekindling lust
In the corner of your eye
A lingering inside
The last place you and I...
This is the place where you and I call our home
Hands touching
He turns them into gold
And the rhythm of my heart
Bites at me
Lips cry red salt
He makes me stay golden
While caressing my flesh
He rips me open
With my eyes closed so tightly
He cradles me
Softly we drift into sleep
Turning hands into minerals
I melt into him
My bones depart from me
I open my hands into a pool of water
Creating the sound of waves, animals, and creatures
Waves of hair drift over your ears
Waves of hair drift to the rhythm of your heart
What is mine is yours
What is yours is forever mine

5. Tastes Like Kevin Bacon

You'll wait it out
Force is not the same
I bought ya
This world will explode
Into numb, one deal owned
Pray for your sons and your daughters- You didn't refuse
Well the first one
Weak arms- Right or wrong
First off, we'll dance when we dance
The last one we fault
The first one we kill
Foresee her
That's what we've done with your head
You're begging for papa
We're safer but
We wash our hands in death
When we fall
He'll go
Feel it grow
We may not be the ones
Feel it go
Feel like we know
We move around
We'll pay
We protest
We'll pawn off war
We protest
We all hit the floor
Right or wrong
Ignorance at it's best
We are at war
You're such a fool
Ignorance isn't bliss
We are lied to
You suckers
Everyone, this is not a joke
In the end all suffer for what we've done
We all suffer

6. The Cat's Pajamas

Who would've known?
To the lips of a failed writer
To crash a cup of wine
To throw a toast to an island that's slowly sinking
I can almost hear you
Hear you crying
Momma you are killing yourself
Momma what can I do?
And I'll be the one putting pins into my fingertips
Only to erase the memories
And to laugh when I think what my father did
She sits
She waits
She toasts her prayers
Not speaks of them
Momma you are killing yourself
Momma what can I do?
She sits
She waits

7. Pazuzu For The Win

What do I deserve?
We were two of a kind
You can't help but feel emotionless
When you're the one standing
Watching from the outside
I never had to care
I never had to worry
But I never stopped to think
I never stop thinking
She knows so much
I wish I could scoop up the ones I love
And place them far away
Certain songs ring aloud
Make your mind wonder about better times
Everyone come to one
Everyone wants what no one gets
And that's why they don't
They want more
That's why the world may come to an end
I will be the one sitting at the edge of the rock
Waiting to be invited in

8. Black-Eyed Bush


9. Eli Cash vs. The Godless Savages

"Happy birthday, merry unbirth, merry unbirthday
Happy birthday, merry unbirth, merry unbirthday"
She's a beaten dog
With yellow nails
I just would like to let you know
That I got deep enough around
At carving away at your skin
Spinning around
Spitting and laughing in my face
Spinning around
Spitting and what I found were alarm clocks
You started biting at your fingernails
To prove we're not breathing
I'll awake from sleep to give a kiss
The killer is gone tonight
But isn't it better to question our love?
Not it's not, it never was
Why do I find pieces of your teeth on piano keys?

10. See You In Shell

He's gone tonight
He's claiming the throne
Grant us some mercy
For you know nothing of the mess you're leaving behind
He shuffles the queen around in a deck of cards
I'm still trying to find answers to mend this broken heart
Ode to my father
Ode to my father
(It's over, my father, it's over)
It's this years addiction
Watching you walk out the door
The stench of the last look you gave to me
You're a perfectionist when it comes to it
It saddens me to know you could start a new life
Leaving everything behind
Now I am left to pick up the broken pieces
When I never asked to be here in the first place
And it lives with me every day
Down a whore's throat
Runnin' around
Runnin' around
Runnin' around round
Down a whore's throat
Now I am left to stitch up the pieces
And we'll give it a shot to live on

11. Danger In The Manger (Jimmy Urine Mix)
