1. WE'RE NOT BAD FOR THE KIDS (WE'RE WORSE)

Screaming
Out their bloody lungs
Riuning their beautiful young voices
Steaming hot
Horny licking tongues
Making all those terribly wrong choices

All you little children have gone out of your minds
Don't wanna read no history
Let's practise some biology

Make you mommy cry
Daddy blows his mind
Listen up and learn
We're not bad for the kids, we're worse
Make 'em take offense
Taint your innocence
The first time always hurts
We're not bad for the kids, we're worse

Wasted
Fried their little brains
Staying out too late and getting crazy
Waintin'
'Til it's far too late
Corrupted to the core and not worth saving

All you little children have gone out of your minds
Don't wanna read no history
Let's practise some biology

Make you mommy cry
Daddy blows his mind
Listen up and learn
We're not bad for the kids, we're worse
Make 'em take offense
Taint your innocence
The first time always hurts
We're not bad for the kids, we're worse

Hey kids, you know that your parent are right
You should not be nasty, no picking a fight
Don't dress up like that, you, Dad, he knows better
As if he never wanted to see your mom in tight leather

Make you mommy cry
Daddy blows his mind
Listen up and learn
We're not bad for the kids, we're worse
Make 'em take offense
Taint your innocence
The first time always hurts
We're not bad for the kids, we're worse
Make you mommy cry
Daddy blows his mind
Listen up and learn
We're not bad for the kids, we're worse
Make 'em take offense
Taint your innocence
The first time always hurts
We're not bad for the kids, we're worse




2. I LUV UGLY

Those little furry things with cute little tails
That little girls love to pet
They are the food for things all covered in scales
I'll take all I can get

Now listen kiddies, I salute the freaks

Hell yeah, you know this face, you've seen me before
But you don't know who I am
I've never heard of you But you want war
You'll get my ten pound boot up your ass

Now listen kiddies, I salute the freaks
It's only pretty when it's nasty

I luv ugly
No such thing
As too extreme

No over the top
All hail the freaks

As too extreme
I luv ugly

3. THE RIFF

I met Mr. Death this morning
He offered me a ride
I said : "I think I'm not quite ready yet
To travel by your side"

"Practice what you preach
Then said the count of shadowlands"
It doesn't hurt to take a peek"
He grinned and grabbed my hand.

I sat in the leather seat
Of his Chevy van
The motor screamed like a pack of rats
In a frying pan

The headlights were shooting sparks
And the tyres spinning flames
"Well alrighty then"
He said and opened up his case
The grim reaper played guitar
His bony fingers cold and stiff
The sonic thunder froze my heart
As he cranked out the Riff

Oh, yeah, the Riff

Then his song was over
And he asked me not to lie
I felt a bit uneasy
But I dared to criticize

I told him : "Man, the riff is a killer
But the rest is a throw-away"
His face looked disappointed
But he said : "Ah, it's ok"

I asked him, has he shown
The devil what he's got
He's written hits
But lately he has not

So the devil's out of touch
And he cannot smell a hit
'Cause he has lost his mind
With all that hip-hop shit
The grim reaper played guitar
His bony fingers cold and stiff
The sonic thunder froze my heart
As he cranked out the Riff

Oh, yeah, the Riff

I woke up and the van was upside down
My body bleeds
We must have crashed right off the road
And Death could barely speak

He said : "Listen you gotta take my place
I'm leaving office soon"
I said : "I'm sorry dude, I'm kinda busy
But tell you what ? I'll take the tune"
And it goes like this

The grim reaper played guitar
His bony fingers cold and stiff
The sonic thunder froze my heart
As he cranked out the Riff
The grim reaper played guitar
His bony fingers cold and stiff
The sonic thunder froze my heart
As he cranked out the Riff
He cranked out the Riff
He cranked out the Riff
He cranked out the Riff
He cranked out the...




4. SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES

I sense it
I feel it
It's aching in my bones
I taste it
In the air, hear it in the undertones

The birds left
No crickets
The silence sings of Death
The River set on pause
The storm holding it's breath

Something wicked this way comes
Something wicked this way comes
No final fights now, it's a terrorize response
Something wicked this way comes

The windows all boarded
The deadbolts are all shot
You know you're pathetic
'Cause this thing can't be stopped

While outside the sun shines
Your something's in your head
You're waiting and waiting
Until you starve to Death

Something wicked this way comes
Something wicked this way comes
No final fights now, it's a terrorize response
Something wicked this way comes

Something wicked this way comes
Something wicked this way comes
No final fights now, it's a terrorize response
Something wicked...
This way comes




5. I'M THE BEST

Don't tell me how to live
I know how I should be
Oh yeah, patronizing the man
I know who and what I am

I'm the best
(I'm the best)
I'm the best
(I'm the best)
The best at what I do
I'm the best
(I'm the best)
I'm the best
(I'm the best)
I'm the best
(I'm the best)
A million times better than you
I'm the best
(I'm the best)
I'm the best
I'm the best

Who do you think you are ?
You're still here but I've gone far
Oh yeah, could it be that you see ?
That you're so goddamn envious of me

I'm the best
(I'm the best)
I'm the best
(I'm the best)
The best at beeing me
I'm the best
(I'm the best)
I'm the best
(I'm the best)
I'm the best
(I'm the best)
More than you could ever be
I'm the best
(I'm the best)
I'm the best
I'm the best

Why keep fighting the stone cold facts and still deny ?
Some fight for what they're told to
Some fight to get wings that make 'em fly

I'm the...
I'm the...
I'm the...
I'm the best
(I'm the best)
I'm the best
(I'm the best)
The best at beeing me
I'm the best
(I'm the best)
I'm the best
(I'm the best)
I'm the best
(I'm the best)
More than you could ever be
I'm the best
(I'm the best)
I'm the best
I'm the best

I'm the best
(I'm the best)
I'm the best
(I'm the best)
I'm the best
(I'm the best)
I'm the best
(I'm the best)
I'm the best




6. HORRIFICTION

You love that man with his fingers of knives
The red and green sweater is framed
You bought a chainsaw and you carved it up right
"The saw is the family" it says on the blade

Vulture's making circles in the air
Forensics collect evidence with lots of care
The bodies in the woods by Crystal Lake
"Just like in the movies", they say

It's all Horrifiction
Silver screen addiction
Cinematic gore and murder
It's all Horrifiction
Not a fact prediction
Movies cannot make you a killer
It's all Horrifiction

You got the puzzle box and book of the dead
The hockey mask tattooed on your chest
Your friends are worried, you've gone sick in the head
Those movie monsters are all you have left

Vulture's making circles in the air
Forensics collect evidence with lots of care
The bodies in the woods by Crystal Lake
"Just like in the movies", they say

It's all Horrifiction
Silver screen addiction
Cinematic gore and murder
It's all Horrifiction
Not a fact prediction
Movies cannot make you a killer
It's all Horrifiction

In the court room, you're confused
It was the monsters, it wasn't you
But all the evidence puts you there
And the judge says : "you'll get the chair"

I'm not a killer...

It's all Horrifiction
Silver screen addiction
Cinematic gore and murder
It's all Horrifiction
Not a fact prediction
Movies cannot make you a killer
It's all Horrifiction
Silver screen addiction
Cinematic gore and murder
It's all Horrifiction
Not a fact prediction
Movies cannot make you a killer
It's all Horrifiction




7. HAPPY NEW FEAR

As a kid in kindergarten they made you cry
Told you mommy won't come back and you believed the lie
Classmates in second grade all abandoned you
They laughed as you got your ass kicked right after school

Of all the loser freaks
You were the most undatable
The grades you got in school were laughable
You're afraid of getting clawed
When you pet your cat
Your dog wants a treat
You think it wants to attack

Another year has gone and everything's worse no
The way your fears come true, it's like a smackdown
And we got more where that come from

Now have a happy happy new fear
Happy new fear
Happy happy new fear
Happy new fear
And the more you feel the fear
The more it consumes
Happy happy new fear
And the fear is killing you

You tell yourself that
Everything's gonna be all right
We'll take it up a notch and boom
Your family dies
And when you see my face
You believe in the supernatural
You'll learn that demons are not fairytales
They're factual

Another year has gone and everything's worse no
The way your fears come true, it's like a smackdown
And we got more where that come from

Wishing happy happy new fear
Happy new fear
Happy happy new fear
Happy new fear
And the more you feel the fear
The more it consumes
Happy happy new fear
And the fear is killing you

Now have a happy happy new fear
Happy new fear
Happy happy new fear
Happy new fear
And the more you feel the fear
The more it consumes
Happy happy new fear
And the fear is killing you

Happy happy new fear
Happy new fear
Happy happy new fear
Happy new fear
The more you feel the fear
The more it consumes
Happy happy new fear
Fear is killing you




8. SCHIZO DOLL

"I am just a little doll
I live here in your yard
You daughter used to play with me
Now your dogs chew up my arms
Sometimes I feel fucked up in the head
That´s when I want to see all children dead"

There was a day that had a silver lining
I remember the light that I saw
They took me off the conveyer belt
And put me in a box on a shelf

Then came the day my little cardboard home
And I were on you way in your car
Your daughther didn´t know how to pretend
And forever we were gonna be friends

For years I was the one to hold
To love and to care for
Then I was left out in the cold
Forgotten to become the rotten

Schizo doll
I can't ever die
Schizo doll
'Cause I was never alive
Schizo doll
Got no flesh, got no bones
Schizo doll
I have a mind of my own
Schizo doll, schizo doll
Left all alone

Now comes a day that has a cool black lining
80 years gone by, the daughters gone grey
But she found me, took me in from the rain
She was hugging me as she slepped away

"Ashes to ashes", the preacher prays
I'm wrapped in her arms now
Forever friends here in her grave
Forgotten to become the rotten

Schizo doll
I can't ever die
Schizo doll
'Cause I was never alive
Schizo doll
Got no flesh, got no bones
Schizo doll
I have a mind of my own
Schizo doll, schizo doll
Left all alone

"I am just a little doll
My best friend is a corpse
The worms are eating up her face
Our casket home walls warp
That bitch left me to rot alone again"

Schizo doll, schizo doll
Schizo doll
Got no flesh, got no bones
Schizo doll
I have a mind of my own
Schizo doll, schizo doll
Schizo doll
I can't ever die
Schizo doll
'Cause I was never alive
Schizo doll
Got no flesh, got no bones
Schizo doll
I have a mind of my own
Schizo doll, schizo doll
Schizo doll
I can't ever die
Schizo doll
'Cause I was never alive
Schizo doll
Got no flesh, got no bones
Schizo doll
I have a mind of my own




9. CANDY FOR THE CANNIBAL

The town went silent as I walked out today
My family didn't have a thing to say
I see the neighbors are avoiding my looks
they know my story as it's all in the books

But I am happier then ever before
Cause I'm grown man candy story
I know this feeling might not last for long
I know my urge and it's way too strong

I know I should not do my thing
No, no
But you look so damn mouth watering

You're the candy for the cannibal
Won't you come on trust the animal
You're my tasty little treat
Sweetie candy
You're the candy for the cannibal
You'll go down cause you're so edible
I'll be tenderizing you meat
Meaty candy to me

(I just love that meaty candy)

I keep my distance when observing the girls
They make me feel like I'm alone in this world
Some call it stalking I say shopping's the word
And when I'm shopping girls are bound to get hurt

I know I should not do my thing
No, no
But you look so damn mouth watering

You're the candy for the cannibal
Won't you come on trust the animal
You're my tasty little treat
Sweetie candy
You're the candy for the cannibal
You'll go down cause you're so edible
I'll be tenderizing you meat
Meaty candy to me

I am simply a man
But they call me the Beast
Oh why can't they understand ?
A man's just gotta eat

Death row went silent as I walked in today
The warden did not have a thing to say
I watch the prisoners avoiding my looks
I'm going shopping for the last meal I cook

You're the candy for the cannibal
Won't you come on trust the animal
You're my tasty little treat
Sweetie candy
You're the candy for the cannibal
You'll go down cause you're so edible
I'll be tenderizing you meat
Meaty candy to me

Candy for me
No more candy for me
No more candy for me
Give me candy
Give me candy
Candy




10. SINCERELY WITH LOVE

Fuck you asshole
Fuck you asshole
Sincerely with love

You don't know a thing
You don't have a clue
Your bell never rings
And still you're being you

No-one ever asked
Yet you always tell
Your opinion´s noted
And now you can go to hell

You think you know everyone
Better than themselves
Truly you're the number one
Appreciating what we've heard
We wanna thank you with these words

So fuck you asshole
Fuck you asshole
Greetings from the heart
Fuck you asshole
Fuck you asshole
Sincerely with love

Thank you for your thoughts
Thanks for your ideas
You claim it´s all in love
But it has more to do with fears

We should all obey
Your rules and moral codes
But it´s you who's on the way
To the place without hope

You think you know everyone
Better than themselves
Truly you're the number one
Appreciating what we've heard
We wanna thank you with these words

So fuck you asshole
Fuck you asshole
Greetings from the heart
Fuck you asshole
Fuck you asshole
Sincerely with love

The smell of sulfur
And now you wonder :
"How did I get here ?"
The new Monsters gather

(Fuck you asshole
Fuck you asshole
Fuck you asshole
Fuck you asshole
Fuck you asshole
Fuck you asshole
Fuck you asshole
Fuck you asshole)

So fuck you asshole
Fuck you asshole
Greetings from the heart
Fuck you asshole
Fuck you asshole
Sincerely with love
Fuck you asshole
Fuck you asshole
Greetings from the heart
Fuck you asshole
Fuck you asshole
Sincerely with love
