Dark Lyrics


1. Pretty In Casts

Maybe she'll snap her wrists doing cartwheels
or her ankle dancing drunken at some rave.
Maybe she'll go through a windshield
and have twinkling bits of glass stuck in her face.
She's so pretty in her casts,
damaged so perfectly.
She's so pretty in her casts,
the prettiest thing I've ever seen.
I only get to hold her when she's injured.
I only get to kiss her where she's sore.

2. Boy Constrictor

Dope sick for your sympathy
I'm a cold slithering monster
haunting your holy footsteps forever, sweetheart.
Blacken my eyes,
they'll still shimmer like assassin knives.
Cut my lips off,
see the lacerations grin.
I'm a student of obsession.
You taught me everything I know.

3. Scarlet Hourglass

She rolls out of bed with the blankets wrapped around her,
dragging like the virgin's wedding gown.
There's a scarlet hourglass at the base of her spine.
Four arms offer caresses.
Four arms brandish knives.
Her tongue twirls in her mouth,
spinning webs of lies

4. Thumbsucker

My eyes have changed color,
some sick yellow that I've never seen.
My stomach is knotted with hunger
for the taste of sex obscene.
She whispers such sweet death threats in my daydreams.
So punish me for weakness,
blame me for everything.
I don't like the suffering,
I like the sympathy it brings.

5. Gravedancer

In this two-bedroom tomb I'm sitting all alone
With the television static and refrigerator drone.

I'm waiting for those blessed arms that seem to wrap around me
Six or seven times praying for them to come home.

I could cut myself to pass the time.
Haven't felt anything in days.

A six-year-old girl dances on my ceiling.
She might as well be dancing on my grave.

6. Lost Cause

Someday I'll find a way to win her over.
She knows it's me calling again.
I can feel her rolling her eyes.
These words I used to scream from the rooftops,
they just fall like ash from my tongue.

7. Sourheart

With trembling fingers I trace her jawline,
such a geometric mystery of celestial design.
Her fragile lips for delicate grins
to spite the sour heart within.
I count the freckles on her shoulders.
I taste confection between her thighs.

8. Towering Flesh

she frolics through the rain
whispering love insane.
her kisses exit through
heart-shaped exit wounds.

Her skin like flesh of angels.
Her blood my catholic wine.
It moves slowly through me,
disintegrates my spine.

she's got heroin embraces
that I still need to be in.
I force myself to loathe her
so I can fall for her again.
So I can fall for her again.

Her lips are wet with venom.
Her posture's serpentine.
she'll touch my arm and
flowers grow there
poisonous and obscene

all her shrugged little movements
and their despotic majesty.
in the midst of such perfection
I can't help but feel diseased.

9. Song Of Filth

Like SS regalia on your skeletal frame,
a forked tongue French kiss.
From three feet away we hold each other
like hostages one last time,
as the vipers spiral down your leg
then spiral up mine.

10. Verminess

When she touches me it's like a rodent sifting through garbage,
but it's better than just rotting away.
When she kisses me her lips are like chalk.
Beneath empty socket eyes compassion takes too much effort.
I suppose the dead honeybees suckle withered flowers
because they don't know what else to do.

11. Torture Ballad

The tape across your mouth says more than your words ever could.
You're squirming and screaming as I tease your eyes with glowing needles.
Crawl slug, drag your shattered legs behind.
I know no matter how much I hurt you
she'll always love you more than me,
but all of this isn't for the sake of her love.
It's for the sake of my jealousy.

12. Restraining Order Blues

The bullet hole looks so right in your head,
like it'd been missing all along.
The blood streaked across your face
like some twisted lover's deformed lipstick trace.
Staring at your reflection
wondering how you're still alive.
Wondering if she's somewhere laughing,
deciding whether to let you die.

13. Carrion Fairy

Yesterday she showed me her bruises,
pulled her sweater up underneath her breasts.
They were scattered 'cross her rib cage,
like a little patch of violet Rorschach tests.
She said, “Just 'cause I can't crawl inside you
that doesn't mean I'm not your parasite.”
She used to be so radiant,
so sexy when she laughed.
Now her eyes look like gravesites as she speaks in epitaphs.

14. Downpour Girl

Half asleep in an open grave I'm gazing into the sky,
carving her shape in the dark clouds.
I want her to drown me in her poison.
I thought she was sewing up my wounds
but she was really planting tumors inside.

15. Soft Assassin

Your heart looks delicious she says licking her lips
as her kamikaze fists crash into floating ribs.
I stare at you the way you stare at your mirror.
So please show me no mercy,
don't be a soft assassin.
I scream though I'm laughing inside.
I know you can't destroy me but you're adorable when you try.

16. Dead Carnations

Buildings collapse in the distance behind you
but I'm hypnotized by your quivering voice,
your fluttering eyes,
that I don't see them fall.
They could crack open all the cages,
set every demon free,
send a bullet screaming to the president's head,
crack it open for everyone to see.
I'm dead to this world,
so bury me deep in your arms tonight.

17. Crippled Horses

Push my fingers past her ear,
watch them disappear into her brown hair.
I wish the rest of me could go with them.
Her bedroom is quiet but my heart screams a horrifying sound,
like a hundred crippled horses lying crumpled on the ground,
begging for a rifle to come and put them down.

18. The Gentleman

I can swallow secrets and spit up blackmail.
Saccharine words and plastic charm can dazzle for a short time.
I just want to help you in my own selfish way.
I will bow my head and kiss your hand,
wishing I could snap every finger.

19. Crawl Of Time

I can feel the glacial crawl of time
like a dull razor carving up my face.
I can feel the last drops of youth lingering inside
I write another love letter to another heartless girl.

20. Terrifyer

These strange thorned vines spring from the ground,
they wind around me as they bind me down.
She moves across the rose garden
suspended in a dark cloud of flies.
Her toes drag the tops of the flowers
and leave them blackened and shriveled in her wake.
Her hands dangle from thin strings of skin.
Her forearms they're like gun barrels smoking crimson.

22. Dress In Gasoline

[Japanese Edition Bonus Track]

You listen closely to my words
When you should be watching my hands
She likes to soak
Her best dress in gasoline
And dance too close to the fire
We can't walk
Hand in hand
If we're always making fists
Sometimes I think I'd rather starve
Than keep gorging myself with nothing

23. The Cutting Room

[Japanese Edition Bonus Track]

It's not that I've disappeared
As much as faded into the background
Abandoned car on a desert highway
A dead hitchhiker buried shallow
If I drowned myself
Sunk to the bottom of the sea
She might notice that I'm missing
But she wouldn't care enough to find me

24. Blurface

[Japanese Edition Bonus Track]

She's not close enough to kiss
My lips don't know what to do
My hands have no hair to play with
My eyes no eyes to gaze into
I didn't know I still had a heart
Until I felt it getting smaller

25. Doomspell

[Japanese Edition Bonus Track]

She cried instead of speaking
Her silence spelling doom
I knew all along
All flowers die
I just wish this one had lived
Long enough to bloom
I know decay
I know it turns you on

26. Natasha

Been lonesome two years since she disappeared.
I'm at the park where she was last seen.
A vast green clearing wrapped up in maple trees,
spilling the morning rain from their leaves.
I used to walk here with a girl,
seventeen at the time,
mistress of seventeen smiles sublime.
With flaming locks of red in autumn
and burning locks of orange in the summertime,
we were solemn and awkward that last night together.
She laid by my side staring into starless skies,
black as fallen angel feathers.
I stared into the forest,
pretending not to see the hangmen she was hiding.
In her eyes of serpent green she said there was another.
I refused to believe her.
I'd thought we'd kiss till our tongues tied together.
All my loving memories became scenes of frenzied slaughter.
My hands became cruel talons as they moved to destroy her neck.
Broke like a toy in a careless child's grip,
my tears rained down into dead eyes and splashed upon her lifeless lips.
I put her in the ground like a flower.
Here I am standing in that same spot today,
where my angel's empty shell last laid.
And as my tears began to well up once more
I see a path into the tree line that I'd never seen before.
I follow it down into a ravine,
find a hole in the earth framed in the roots of a birch tree.
Subtle echoes of her voice speaking words I've never heard
but the way she hissed her S’s it just had to be her.
I smell honeysuckle then opium,
two of her signature scents.
I pull aside all the thistles and vines,
and mesmerized I make my descent.
As I crawl further inside the light slowly dies
and the dirt begins to feel like her skin.
I tremble as I drag my fingers down the walls,
caressing her sweet flesh again.
I'm sliding down trying so hard not to fall,
slipping on the blood that's seeping from the walls.
Then suddenly I'm surrounded by a thousand of her eyes,
bathing the tunnel in a strange green light.
The eyes show me pictures like ghostly television screens
all her thrashing final struggles and her ravaged corpse serene.
The tunnel is closing behind me,
pressing me further and further down.
I'm being swallowed by her earth and consumed by her ground.
The end is moving into sight.
I gasp and I scream as I see her lovely mouth five times the size of me,
her lips curl into a grin around her crooked gnashing teeth.
I'm pulverized and devoured in the jaws of a girl seventeen.
