THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER LYRICS

1. Receipt


Ripping from me is this haunting admission, so daunting
A complete jealousy of the recently dead
The deepest of all admirations, so foul
Of who’d choose to aim bullets for the hinds of their heads

Have you ever tasted it?
Metallic barrel placed in it?
Do you possess the gall to pain all those in life you’ve touched?

Failure, I renounce our tenure
This venture has drained me
I ask thee grant self murder’s bliss
My conscience has begged me to end this horrendousness
Wrap rope so tightly ‘round my neck and twist

Suicide be my guide
The only thing I will get right in this life
My appeal shall not be denied
My place - now secured
My home - the other side

I never belonged here
I never did ask if I could join this world collapsed
A hell hath awakened and now I choose sleep
So let this razor get the better of me

[Solo]

Suicide be my light
The only wrong I stand to right in this life
To the ear of the Reaper confide
His blade offers mercy
May it tear me wide

I never belonged here
I never did ask if I could join this world collapsed
My hell hath awakened and now I choose sleep
So let this gesture do the talking for me

Dear Mother and Father, now look what you’ve made
More eager fodder for the depth of a grave
For the sweet gift of life you’ve both bestowed upon me
You’ll wish that you’d felt inclined to keep the fucking receipt


2. Vlad, Son Of The Dragon


Raise up the traitors
Higher higher
By order of rank then spark their funeral pyres
Smelling the sumptuous stench of bowels emptying as my message is sent
String up purveyors of weakness and lie who would seek to betray no pardons eye
For eye torture a past time of bloodiest sorts
I feel I should be thanked for those fiends I abort

They will fear my very name
I am the dragon’s son

High on a stake
Higher higher
How shameful a game to’ve watched such life expire
Cleansing my own holocaust
Tremble they will at the feet of their gods
Hang up subversives who question my guile who should seek to oppose man woman beast or child
Enemies sleep with half open eyes
I shall reign all Wallachia with God on my side

They will fear my very name Dracul
I am the Devil’s son

You will burn
How I choose
You will burn
Kill them all
My righteous hand

Rumor of my cruelties
A wildfire through the lands
To control the fear of your enemy
You must bore your way inside their heads

You will burn
How I choose
You must burn
They will learn
Those like you
I’ll make them learn

Kill them all
My righteous hand


3. Abysmal


The world has turned and left me here
Alone with nothing but my fears
I feel the stiff of age it cracks
Mirror reflects just what I lack

I am standing here dying to be
To mean anything to anyone but me
I am naked now bereft of life's meaning
I am a shadow of what was

Plummet to sunken depths
There will be nothing left
Secrets of my being are being from me kept

There will be no resolve
For this wreck of nerves
Cheers to the axe that falls to the end
that I deserve

I am standing here dying to be
To mean anything to anyone but me
I am naked now bereft of life's meaning
I am a shadow of what was

A shadow of what was

You are dead to me
I am dead to me
My pulse has stopped you see
The butcher's waiting meat
And for eternity
As Satan laughs
we'll burn together
and scream abysmally

The work has turned and left me here
Alone with nothing but my fears
I feel the stiff of age it cracks
Reflects just what I lack

I am alone
I live alone
I'll die alone
Beneath a nameless stone

I am standing here dying to be
To mean anything to anything but me
I am naked now bereft of life's meaning
I am a shadow of was

I'll try this noose on just because
Signed "Your Friend, Abysmally"


4. Re-Faced


Incriminate Impersonate
All power to humiliate

Videotaped, duct taped, and raped
I’ll fool them all and masquerade perversely in your place

I prefer to leave the facial tissue still connected to the scalp
A woman I am not but flowing locks will surely help

Rifling through your belongings
Gratuitous make up is applied
In the mirror I stop to masturbate
All while looking through your eyes

I’m you, sad but true
Your faceless body to turn blue
Take a long hard look at yourself and tell me what you see

Promiscuity
Perversion of your sanctity
I’ve framed the scene for forced pornography’s throes, you’ll see

I utilize your charms as bait
May you break a leg here upon this stage
A posthumous lead
Your most adventurous and controversial role

It’ll be our little secret
There’s not a soul that has to know
I prefer to leave the victim living so the show they may endure
Hours moaning, slowly bleeding
Chained unto the cellar floor

Imagining the thoughts you process
You’re reasoning with the insane
Abandon hope for it’s reattachment
Gender roles now rearranged

Sexual atrocities
Inheriting personality
You gave life so selflessly so I may be new, falsely

I’ve lost a grip on reality
Entwined in this sickening duality
The way you fuck yourself in mockery, unforgettable

At knifepoint I’ll ask a line of questions and I’d sure appreciate the truth
It’s nothing I’d ever hold against us
Merely research for being you

[Solo]

Incriminate Impersonate
All power to humiliate

I’m you, sad but true
Your faceless body to turn blue
Take a long hard look at yourself and tell me what you see?

Promiscuity
Perversion of your sanctity
I’ve framed the scene for forced pornography’s throes, you’ll see

I utilize your charms as bait
May you break a leg here upon this stage
A posthumous lead
Your most adventurous and controversial role
To who’s acclaim you’ll never know
They say the camera steals the soul


5. Threat Level No. 3


Society I beg of thee
Open your hateful arms to me
For now I am just like you
You see my balls rattle in a jar

‘neath smiling mask remains a past
As I recant couldn’t help but laugh
Was that really me who had sipped from the glass wrought of all pedophilic sin?

Merely the calm thrust between the two most violent storms man’s seen or a libido guillotined forevermore?

They dangle bait right in my face
That once did make my heart so race
But hormonally my desire replaced to quell all but the faintest roar

Merrily o mother let them play
The boogeyman he has gone away
The slender one who would make his prey from the good little girls and boys

Come tempt the fates I do implore
For I am not He anymore
Subject to all parental scorn
Demon exiled

Threat level number three
A badge to my reign of depravity
If it’s only my death that can set us all free then what is it we’re waiting for?

My crimes of sick lust they’ve secured me a space
In a man’s most befeared and respected of place
In the home of the horned and His torturing flames
I deserve all of this and more

Thwarting the raping beast
That deep inside me sleeps
In a hope that this history will never repeat
My dick my gun now obsolete

Are we all here just grasping at straws?
Is the Devil’s will absolute is it stronger than laws?
Can I walk freely down darkened streets that I’ve stalked?
Is there truly a hope left for me?

Down her leg blood trickled
I remember her every breath
Chemically castrated
Normality is mandated for now

[solo]

Leaden the weight of this arms they could not bear
Gonadal atrophy a product of their care
Reclusive enemy inside me he dwells
Guilt swells abysmally unequaled my hells

Society I truly beg of thee
I should remain behind silver lock and key
Feeling the rip of young tissues ‘round my meat
Now a fading dream to this pitch-blackened sheep

Threat level number three
A badge to my reign of depravity
If it’s only my death that can set us all free then what is it we’re waiting for?

My crimes of sick lust they’ve secured me a space
In a man’s most befeared and respected of place
In the home of the horned and His torturing flames
I deserve all of this and more

Thwarting the raping beast
That deep inside me sleeps
In a hope that this history will never repeat
My dick my gun now obsolete

Are we all here just grasping at straws?
The Devil’s will absolute is it stronger than laws?
Can I walk freely down darkened streets that I’ve stalked?
Is there truly a hope that is left for poor pathetic fucking me?


6. The Fog


Amongst the perilous mists formed of the moon arising new
the creature set upon us like a plague

waist deep we proceeded to be butchered in the fog
strafing straight into the clutches of the beast that hell hath spawned

one by one did they scream dragged beneath the blanket of the mist
the mob is damned born to lose a sacrifice of human meat to lycanthropic bliss

the wolf simply can't resist
shots erupt
the strongest men are lost
as panic claims this throng
who will hunt
and who will be the skinned?
The elder evil wins where's our bravado now?
The drunk and dead begin to pile
in vain we laughed and cheered
this night that spells our end

flashlights are dwindling down
by earthly gods we're disavowed
plump sow apple in mouth
the wolfen's pending feast

"above the law!" we declared now lucky if we're left above the ground
comb the woods a child we seek so little did we men know that our end would there be found

I held my breath as we happened on the girl
or should I say what was left
father screams uncontrollably hes lost his sanity

thirty one closed casket funerals
victims of sheer disbelief

thirty one sent to the slaughter to be
without reprieve

[solo]

dragged below sight
writhing in the haze
like sitting ducks we are in moments to be splayed

where's our militia now?
Our bravest men a mounting pile
to think we toasted rye
this night that spells our end


"above the law!" we declared now lucky if we're left above the ground
comb the woods a child we seek so little did we men know that our end would there be found
six feet down


7. Stygiophobic


[Spoken:]
I hope this is as close to hell as I'll ever get

Is your very existence shackled by an irrational fear of hell?
Terrified of suicide but desiring death as well?
Can't they see there are consequences when will they ever learn?
Every night seeing dead faces of the friends and family burn

No one will be safe to the will of God enslaved
Will I ever awake?
I pray the lord my feeble soul to take

Can't they see there are consequences for every push there's a pull?
Each life a test impossible to secure one's seat in hell

Can't they see there are consequences when will they ever learn?
Every night seeing dead faces of friends and family burn

No one will be safe

[Solo]


8. Asylum


To the ones that we’ve forgotten and labelled as insane
In institutions rotting secret mars of family shame
Bound tightly and injected
Subdued by pill regimes
Suspended animation
Pull the rug over the stain

Mistreated and molested
Fed food not fit for pigs
If we’re to call them human beings why treat their lives as shit?
No chance of contribution to well-oiled society
Viewed as manure walking wastes of very air we breathe

Rejected disavowed
Buried beneath our shallow smiles
What do they mean for us and what do they deserve?
Four padded walls – their coffins
Underfunded understaffed
In a putrid squalor wallow while the rich and perfect have a laugh

Sons and daughters
Brethren and kin
Sisters and brothers from pictures are trimmed
Out of our sight, out of our minds
Where is the kindness on which this world prides?

This is the coldest song a voice could ever sing
It’s destined to come out wrong
We’ve done the damnedest things
Oh, the humanity

Denial so disgusting
A life shackled rusting
And business is booming
We’re vampires and should be ashamed

At birth found unequal
A real living freak show
Throw them in a cell and forget their existence is pain
What a shame

A shrine unto torment
To minds deemed delinquent
Place holding placation
The voiceless damnated can’t scream
Can you hear them scream?

[Solo]

Mistreated and molested
Fed food not fit for pigs
If we’re to call them human beings why treat their lives as shit?
No chance of contribution to well-oiled society
Viewed as manure walking wastes of very air we breathe

Sons and daughters
Brethren and kin
Sisters and brothers from pictures are trimmed
Out of our sight, out of our minds
Where is the kindness in our humankind?

This is the coldest song a voice could ever sing
It’s destined to come out wrong
We’ve done the damnedest things
Oh, the humanity


9. The Advent


The dawn has broken crimson
This day of defloration
Ironclad reclamation

Across the frozen dale fearlessly cold dominion
Our soldiers take formation
The tundra's desolation
Some call it hell but it's our home

We have to fight
There is no turning back
Our legions storm ice covered fields

Our blood runs cold
Endure our winter thirty fold
With vorpal blades
Imperial into the white abyss we go

The advent is here dawn of the Antichrist
They tread our world on borrowed time
Pushed back amongst the shadows
Disguised for centuries
The time is now to rise and crush our christian enemies down

It's time to strike
There is no second chance
Our brethren swarm with sword and shield

It's time to die
For our christian enemy
To no law of mercy
Shall we yield god fearing blood stains red

The field the conquest grows
Near dawn to the end of Christ
Poisoned our young for the last time
Oh to slay their lord divine

Empire laden in frost
Ivory towers dipped in crystalline gloss
My frozen kingdom
We are cold in the heart
Glaives of ice
We wield white wolves of victory march

Resistance to books of fictions
Insistence upon beheading Jesus
Pestilence for all believers
Defenseless against the great deceiver

[Solo]

The advent is here
Dawn of the Antichrist
They tread our world on borrowed time

The end of christian kind

Empire laden in frost
Ivory towers dipped in crystalline gloss
My frozen kingdom we are cold in the heart
Glaives of ice we wield
White wolves of victory march

The dawn has broken crimson
This day of defloration
Ironclad reclamation

Across the frozen dale fearlessly cold dominion
Our soldier take formation
The tundra's desolation
Some call it hell
But it's our home
Hell


10. That Cannot Die Which Eternally Is Dead


We've come again to the end my friends
The winds of change shall swirl up a din
The beast is shifting shapes again
Weaponized to the teeth while we grin

The years go by
In the blink of an eye
Of an old withered man,
Our dreams lost to sands
Of bastard time
What was our crime?
But to exist?
We'll be sent before the devil.
Hell, we're on his list

Onto the gates of pearl we piss our tribute
Open your flesh and let the beast flow through you

Your abysmal heart
Black as pitch
And dead right from the start
This century
The night world is ours

That cannot die which eternally is dead
Two in the place of once severed head
Hydra of bone and its swirling dance
Hypnotizing the weak in it's trance

The years they fleet
Like the words of the meek
In the face of the storm
Bear witness as this hell is born
Unto this earth we are in their curse
We are truth if you seek eternal life
We are it's living proof

The gates gilded in gold our blackened entrance
Open your veins and pay the demon penance

From your abysmal heart
Black as pitch
And dead right from the start
This century
The night world is ours

Deliver us
Relentless
Deliver us
The damned

The dead we're still here walking
With blood upon our hands

Deliver us
Intention
Deliver us
The true

The movers of this world
Who'll shake the very life from you

[Solo]

Onto the gates of pearl we piss our tribute
Open your flesh and let the beast flow through you

Your abysmal heart
Black as pitch
And dead right from the start

This century
The night world is ours


11. We Dead Are Best Left Underground


Symphonics of sickness embroiled in rottenness
To the tune of abortion in total death we've staked our claim
Palette for putrescence savor the succulence
Impression quite repulsive murder par for our little game

Skeletonization
Cremated by the sound
Weapons of hell's construction
We dead are best left underground

Piercing the depths of our carapaced hearts
Embrace us without form to feel
And willingly we'll slip between their cracks
You're the only thing that's surely real

Undead and undying our souls never rest
Our funerals are mental by cruelty we're obsessed
Black blood in our veins flowing
Aligned with all that which is dead

Piercing the depths of our carapaced hearts
Embrace us without form to feel
And willingly we'll slip between their cracks
You're the only thing that's fucking real

Remember our hated the conquests of the past
And foster in revulsion a darkened future to be had

Piercing the depths of our carapaced hearts
Embrace us without form to feel
And willingly we'll slip between their cracks
You're the only thing that's surely real

Undead and undying our souls could never rest
Our funerals are mental, by hate and cruelty we're obsessed


12. Hellion


Cutting their smallish stomachs open and spreading it wide
Enthralling fascination with the tiny organs inside
I thank thee mother nature for the curio that ye provide
An outlet for the corruption brewing behind my eyes

No empathy there is a void in me
I cannot care I know not what it means
A boy alone abuse is festering
When I am grown I'll make you wish you'd noticed me

I'll light the fires that turn their panicked heads
A wild desire to see the whole of this world dead
I am the voiceless I speak with flame instead
Spit in the sunken face of this entire fucking empty human race

I'll light the fire that turn their panicked heads
A wild desire to see the whole of this world dead
I am a demon, hellion am I
I'm going to set this earth alight


13. Der Ton


Die Gitarre ist mein Gott
Der Ton der Ton er macht mich an

Dafür gibt es keinen Ersatz
Du musst spielen du musst spielen
