Track Name: Bones
Skull (skull) had brains inside
Now it’s empty, bleached and white
Teeth (teeth) no longer bite
Broken off or falling out

Neck (neck) used to turn heads
Caught her in bed and now she’s dead

All these bones, scattered on the ground
Nothin’ alive, nothin’ makes a sound
No crypts, no headstones
Barren field, and a bunch of bones

Ribs (ribs) used to hold a heart
Spine, fallin’ apart
Hips (hips) cracked and split
She should not have give me lip

Thighs (thighs) used to hypnotize
She lied, she had to die
Track Name: Kiddie KocKtail
Been playing by myself all morning mama just got up
In that stinky bathrobe poured her breakfast in a cup
She don’t want to play with me she’s heading for her chair
She walked right through my Lego house and kicked my teddy bear

Mommy’s in a mood again. Is she made at me?

Puts out another cigarette and shouts and the tv
I know, I know, I know what… I’ll fix her a surprise
Refill her empty coffee cup and set it by her side

If I were only big, I could reach up high
But I’m only little so I’ll have to improvise

Underneath the sink, bottles blue and pink
Everything I need for mama’s special drink

I put it on the table and gave her sleeve a tug
To show her I can make her the stuff she really loves
“MOMMY, MOMMY, LOOK AT ME, LOOK WHAT I CAN DO”
But ‘All My Children’s’ on right now so all she said was “MOVE!”

Mommy did a real good job she finished every drop
I think she tried to hug me but she spun round like a top
Mommy’s got a funny smile her eyes are rolling back
Maybe she’ll feel better when she gets up from her nap
Track Name: The Method Actor
Time and time again
I see them walking with their friends
I have to follow through
It’s what I do, it’s not pretend

It’s exhilarating how it feels
When it’s real and they’re screaming in your arms
They think it’s just a game
But I’ve changed

Chorus: I take this role so seriously (2x)

Time and time again
I see them crying with their friends
I have to follow through
It’s what I do, it’s not pretend

It’s intoxicating how it feels
When it’s real and they’re squealing in your arms
They think it’s just a game
But I’ve changed

Chorus

Time and time again
I see them walking with their friends

Time and time again
I see them crying with their friends

Time and time again
I see them dying with their friends
Track Name: Never Bet The Devil Your Head
William fancied himself a boy too sensible for his own good
So on the eve of his wedding day he bought a girl in the hood

She cut him once from stem to stern
Dowsed him good with gasoline
Sit back and watched his body burn
Well honey ain’t that a scene?

Never bet The Devil your head for heaven’s sake
or tempt a hungry demon when his hounds are on the make
And here’s a rule to live by, if you wanna stay alive
Always watch your neck around the tall man with a scythe.

Susan had always lived a quiet life, but tonight she had an itch
So she asked the scruffy neighbor boy over for a piece of fish

But when he leaned for a kiss
She laughed so hard she spit her drink
So he chopped her up in little bits
Then washed up in the sink

Never bet The Devil your head for heaven’s sake
or tempt a hungry demon when his hounds are on the make
And here’s a rule to live by, if you wanna stay alive
Always watch your neck around the tall man with a scythe.

SOLO OVER CHORUS

CHORUS OUT
Track Name: Live Fast, Die Young
Live fast, die young
Live fast die young
One lover to the next one
Live fast, die young

You're dead wrong
You're dead wrong
You wanna go kiss the gun
You're dead wrong

You drink your whiskey
I'll drink my wine
Before that you boss me around all the time

Live fast, die young
Live fast die young
One lover to the next one
Live fast, die young

You play dead
You play dead
You play dead in your head
Tame the tiger in your head

Live fast, die young
Live fast die young
One lover to the next one
Live fast, die young

You drink your whiskey
I'll drink my wine
Before that you boss me around all the time

Live fast, die young
Live fast die young
One lover to the next one
Live fast, die young

Oh-oh, oh-oh...

*break*

Live fast, die young
Live fast die young
One lover to the next one
Live fast, die young
Track Name: Everybody Dies
Everybody dies, everybody dies (4x)

V1
Listen everybody to the words I say
I know your heart still beats I hope it stays that way
But there's a bell that's ringing
There's a wind blown chime
And there's a ghoulie singing in broken time

CHORUS
Everybody dies, everybody dies
Still it seems to catch some people by surprise
Everybody dies, everybody dies
Now is probably not the time to close your eyes

V2
Looking back and forth two times before you cross
Won't save you from the metaphoric cross town bus
Even with protection when you're in the woods
A chunky clown might still jump out and get you good

CHORUS
Everybody dies, everybody dies

BRIDGE
Lightning strikes, spider bites, attacks by wolves
Extremely heavy objects sliding off your shelves
Stabs, electrocutions, strangulation gloves
Pillow suffocation from the one you love

Everybody dies, everybody dies
Track Name: I Wonder If She Knows
Sunday’s girl
Fair of face
Taken far too soon
One late spring day
3 am
Phone rings
But it can’t be true
Please don’t say it again

I wonder if she knows
She’s really a ghost
When she’s roaming around
This spooky old town
I see her on a bridge
She’s making a wish
Such an innocent glow
Wherever she goes
I wonder if she knows

Maybe she’s lost
Maybe in between
Two beautiful worlds
Places I’ve never been
But when the gloaming comes
And if the light’s just right
Maybe if I squint
Baby, I’ll see you tonight

I wonder if she knows
She’s really a ghost
When she’s roaming around
This spooky old town
I see her on a bridge
She’s making a wish
Such an innocent glow
Wherever she goes
I wonder if she knows

And some days I go walking in the rain
For hours and hours
Just hoping
I’ll see you again
And tell you
I miss you, Mary Ann
Track Name: Belly Up
Don’t kick me now
When I am down
You won’t get far
Runnin’ in the same spot
My friends all say
“It’ll pass with days”
But don’t kick me now
When I am down
I’m kissin’ the lips of thousands
Putting my mouth on their eyelids
Belly up in the bathtub
Dancin’ to the sound
Of the blood
In my head
It’s always morning
The sound of sirens
Warnin’ me
‘Round and ‘round they’ve got me spinnin’
To the beat of my own drum
Rum bum bum bum
Try to be more kind
I will fall behind
Take a bit of time
To figure out the fine lines
I’m just kickin’ dirt
To see what I’m worth
Try to be more kind
And I won’t fall behind
I’m kissin’ the lips of thousands
Puttin’ my mouth on their eyelids
Belly up in the bathtub
Dancin’ to the sound
Of the blood
In my head it’s always mornin’
The sound of sirens
Warnin’ me
‘Round and ‘round they’ve got me spinnin’
To the beat of my own drum
Rum bum bum bum
To the beat of my own drum
Rum bum bum bum
To the beat of my own drum
Rum bum bum bum
To the beat of my own drum
Rum bum bum bum
Track Name: Silver Bullet
Oh they call him the Silver Bullet
He’s an outlaw bounty hunter
He kills vampires and their brethren
Them Transylvanian sons o bitches

Aw ooo oooo oooo oooo
I’m the fastest slayer in the west
Aw ooo oooo oooo oooo
he makes vampires wet their pants

I clean my tool and I open up
My vampire kit and it’s parts
there’s holy water and silver crosses
cloves of garlic and faith

I’m about to meet my greatest challenge
My foe, the devil himself
Ole Vlad he came from Transylvania
straight from the fires of hell

I steel my nerves and I clutch my bible
I load my 44
My silver bullet keeps me safe
inspired by the Lord

Aw ooo oooo oooo oooo
I’m the fastest slayer in the west
Aw ooo oooo oooo oooo
he makes vampires wet theirselves

Toll of a mission bell can’t save you from hell
in the witching hour when the coyots howl
the deserts’ cold as a dead man’s hand
my trusty iron, best friend of a man.
ooooo oooooo oooo
ooooo oooooo oooo

Now I’m the only law on these dusty streets tonight
so now begins the duel between darkness and light
Oh dear Vlad I hope are ready for a fight...
I took my aim and he cast no shadow in the full moonlight
So I cocked my hammer and got him cold, steady in my sights
so i send this undead man back beyond the grave.
In this sleepy little town, these souls are safe.
oooo oooo oooo ooooo 4x SHOT!

Oh they call him the Silver Bullet
He’s an outlaw bounty hunter
He kills vampires and their brethren
Them Transylvanian sons o bitches

Aw ooo oooo oooo oooo
I’m the fastest slayer in the west
Aw ooo oooo oooo oooo
he makes vampires wet themselves
Aw ooo oooo oooo ooooo
He’s the fastest slayer in the west
Track Name: Whispers Come In Tides
There’s a haunting at the end of the hall
But only I know
My lungs swell with the sweet smell
Of perfume
Every time I’m in this room
And I can leave
But if I try
The whispers come in tides
They come in tides

And I know now
That’s a far cry from forcing myself to stay
My fear
Of darkness
Holds my breath
And I know now
That’s a far cry from forcing myself to stay
My fear
Of darkness
Holds my breath

There’s a haunting at the end of the hall
But only I know
And I can’t seem to rest at all
With memory recall, memory recall
And I been pacin’ back and forth
But everywhere I go it’s cold
It’s always cold

And I know now
That’s a far cry from forcing myself to stay
My fear
Of darkness
Holds my breath
And I know now
That’s a far cry from forcing myself to stay
My fear
Of darkness
Holds my breath

And I know now
That’s a far cry from forcing myself to stay
My fear
Of darkness
My fear
Of darkness
My fear
Of darkness
My fear
Of darkness
Holds my breath

There’s a haunting
At the end of the hall
But only I know
Track Name: The Santa You Know
Hey kids, Santa Claus is coming to town
You know good ol’ Saint Nick won’t let you down
He’s creepin’ down the chimney with a big bag of toys
To poison the souls of all the good girls and boys
He’s got a long list of who’s naughty and nice
And if you think that you’re safe then you’d better think twice
Smudges from coal and his black leather boots
And the smoke from his pipe has stained his red suits
As he puts his finger a side of his nose
He smirks as he sees all the piles of snow
He rules the darkness as he flies through the night
His demon elves stay just out of sight
Back at his workshop under the mistletoe thorns
His minions sharpen up his reindeer horns
He strokes his pointy beard and his mustache curls
As the slay bells toll for all the children of the world
Track Name: The Beast In The Basement
When I was a little kid
I remember I was scared of the basement
And my mom would always tell me to go down there and do laundry or something
And when I went down there
It would always smell moldy and I always thought I seen this dark figure
In the back
And it only have one light
And sometimes it went out
So I’d have to do the laundry in the dark
And there were times when I would hear growling sounds
And whenever I felt a cold breeze
I knew it was there right beside me

One time I woke up
In my bed
I was in a cold sweat
And here was a moment where I saw its face
Its skin looked like it was melted
There was blood that streamed down its face
One ear seemed to be bitten off
Like it was in a fight
And the sides were all ragged
And tufts of fur were missing
And part of its tail was missing as well
It was huge
Like, I can only say it was bigger than a German shepherd
And it had sharp teeth
And I remember as it stared into my eyes
A drop of blood went onto my skin and absorbed itself into me
And I felt cold
And then it would be gone

There were times when I would have dreams about it
And in every dream, I would see it
Even if it was a happy dream
In the back of my head, I could sense it was there
Always telling me that, “I’m not ever leaving you
I’m always gonna be here”
And over the years I would see it
In the back
Of my eyes

I still see it today
Track Name: Killing Boredom
I’ll split you in two from your fun pack to your eyeballs
In case you haven’t noticed, yes I am a frickin’ psycho
Now shut you’re friggin’ mouth bitch, and give a brother a hand
Grab this loop right here and put it around your neck
Now don’t cry little darling this’ll only hurt a bit
Less you keep kickin’ and screamin’ like that we’ll make a day of this
I’m so happy that you’re here right now I’ve been dreaming of this for years
Finally comes the day when I get to bathe in your blood and tears
Maybe I’ll start with your face how ‘bout a couple more holes in your ears
Or how ‘bout a little liposuction well I don’t really have the machine
But I got these sharp knives…

Chorus:
Kickin’ and screamin’ won’t help you now it’s way too late for that
No one’s every gonna hear you and no one knows where you’re at
No use gettin’ all pissed about it, it’s only gonna make you cry
Enjoy these last few hours woo hoo! You’re gonna die

You’re everything I ever wanted everything I ever dreamed of
Cuz every part of you is a part I always wanted a piece of
I’m savoring every moment of this every last little bit
I can tell by the look in your eyes you’re kinda into this shit
Aren’t ya

Cutting off your fingers cutting off your toes
So I’ll have a little piece of you with me everywhere I go
Maybe I’ll shave your face off and frame it on the wall
Cuz that’s actually the part of you I love most of all
I love your smile
You have a great smile
Track Name: Head On A Stick
Head On A Stick

I wanna take your teeth and steal the gold
Gonna make the new ring for the man that you stole
Gonna kill the witch and lift the spell
Stripper bitch you can burn in hell

I wanna see your head on a stick (4x)

I love people, people
And everyone deserves love
But people who are stupid and thick
They're the ones who deserve their head on a stick

I wanna see your head on a stick (4x)

Home wrecker, shape shifter, insecure manipulator
Tell me sister what you're seeing when you're looking in the mirror (4x)
I wanna see your head on a stick (4x)

*break*

Home wrecker, shape shifter, insecure manipulator
Tell me sister what you're seeing when you're looking in the mirror (4x)
I wanna see your head on a stick (4x)
Track Name: The Lion And The Mouse
I don’t know you, love
But I can see the blood in you
Similar
Kill all the lights
Unwanted bright shadows
Follow you

I’m a lion not a mouse
Fish bones you know are the strongest ones
I’m a lion not a mouse
But you know how to get around me

I could try and bring you by
But you’re not the kind that would
Do a favor
So set back your clock
In the middle of the winter

I’m a lion not a mouse
Fish bones you know are the strongest ones
I’m a lion not a mouse
But you know how to get around me

On a train to you I come
And I just hope that you’re alone
And there’s no one there with you
‘Cause you know how to get around me
Track Name: Can I Warm You Up
It’s gotten late
And it’s dark outside
And you’re not talkin’
On the drive
Anyway, anyway, there’s nothin’ to say

When I take you home
Gonna warm you up
Can I have my way
If I warm you up?

<some a y’all know what I’m talkin’ ‘bout>

The lights are low and my neighbors gone
So no one will see us when we comin’ home
Look away, look away, from the light of day

When I take you home
Gonna warm you up
Can I have my way
If I warm you up

It’s so hard to decide, when you wait on a ride
Which one will take you all the way
It’s so hard to decide, when you wait on your ride
Which one will take you all the way, home

When I take you home
Gonna warm you up
Can I have my way
If I warm you up

If it’s cool in the cooler, it’s cold in the ground
It’s warm at my place, we’ll never be found
And anyway, anyway… you don’t wanna be alone

When I take you home
Gonna warm you up
Can I have my way
If I warm you up
When I take you home
Can I warm you up
Can I have my way
If I warm you up
Track Name: Tonight's The Night
(Chorus)
Tonight is the night I get to use this gun
Tonight is the night the bastard’s gonna pay
I’ll be miles away next time I see the sun
But that sum-bitch won’t see another day
Tonight is the night he’s gonna pay

I really like the feel of this gun in my hand
With a full clip the weight is just right
I’ve spent the last twelve nights hangin’ out on this guy’s land
Now I know his habits and tonight’s the night
I’ve watched from every angle and I know just what he’ll do
He’ll brush his teen and then walk down this hall
I’ll be outside his window, and he won’t have a clue
‘Til the glass breaks he won’t know I’m there at all

(Chorus)

He didn’t have to kill her, he’d already had his fun
He coulda zipped his pants and walked away
He stomped her head and sent her to oblivion
And left her in the ditch where she lay
I didn’t recognize her, when they pulled back the sheet
But I know that naked body oh so well
The cops made some mistake that put him back out on the street
But I intend to send him straight to hell

Tonight is the night I get to use this gun
Tonight is the night the bastard’s gonna pay
I’ll be miles away next time I see the sun
But that sum-bitch won’t see another day
I’m gonna put him six feet down to stay
I’ll shoot the schmuck without a s’il vous plait
This forty-five will blow his brains away
Tonight is the night he’s gonna pay
