My Ruin

The Brutal Language tracks

Lyrics


1. NATURE BOY

There was a boy, a very strange enchanted boy...
They say he wandered very far, very far over land and sea.
A little shy and sad of eye but very wise was he.
And then one day - a magic day he passed my way and while we spoke of many things, fools and kings, this he said to me
"The greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return..."




2. SILVERLAKE 671

The forecast said it would be sunny
I guess they got it wrong
It's raining again in silverlake and I need to hear my song
The one that puts me in the mood to spill my guts and talk
To you saves me from my self-infected drama when I do oh!
You're asleep right now but I'm sill wide awake
It's hard for me to close my eyes without no pill to take...
I think of all the times I've tried, the night I've dreamed I've died...
Help me feel alive again cause I'm so dead inside! Well...

[Chorus:]
I'm a liar and you're a saint, feels so good being the one they hate!
And I'm a sinner so let's all pray, I wouldn't want it any other way!

Well have you heard the news I've got a blue bruise on my hip
The truth can be a brutal business I just need a kiss Someone to take my wrist I think that I'm about to bleed...
But I know it's not up to you to give me what I need...
Oh! You're awake right now so I must be asleep...
It seems I've got a secret that I ain't afraid to keep...
I think of all the times I've tried to tell you how I feel...
But it's so hard to mend my parts that just refuse to heal!
Well...

[Chorus]

Take me back, let's go back, it's so dark here, it's so black...
Exouisile with stillness the fragrance of flesh...
Taste of revenge and my wounds are still fresh!
Now here she comes with her bloody red lips...
Funeral white skin and her generous hips...
Drenched in the scent of romance like no other
She's so filthy gorgeous that death has become her!

[Chorus x2]




3. THE DEVIL WALKS

It takes a lot to get me down when I'm high...
I know you're no friend of mine!
I can see the devil in your eyes, look at me I'm Jesus Christ!
All alone so throw your stones at my words and lovely bones...
Blood that's red, a mouth that's mean, raise your fucking hands with me!

Forgive!
I have sinned!
Believe...
I'll do it again.

Well I've been down this road before and every time...
You never change your mind
You see me in black and white, nailed to the cross and crucified!
Look around me, smell the flies...
Judas filling me with lies...
But I don't hide the blood I bleed, raise your fucking hands with me!

Forgive!
I have sinned!
Believe...
I'll do it again.

Walk with me through the valley, fear no evil!
Walk with me, I'm the baddest motherfucker in the valley!
With all of your questions... and words in your head...
You went searching for god...
Met the devil instead!
Walk with me through the valley, fear no evil!
Walk with me, honesty is the holiest disease!




4. SPILLING OPEN

I watch the buzzards gather but no-one's DEAD today...
Like sheep they follow after and promise not to stray.
Her darling little bastards scarred with elitist black
But I know when I stab her, it won't be in her back!

[Chorus:]
I'm spilling open inside my house of leaves,
It doesn't matter what's been said, it's what my heart Believes!

It seems the hive is buzzing the bees protect their queen...
While snakes with poison venom
Appear upon the scene
So ugly in their hatred god bless the maybeline
So arrogant that when she cuts
It's done for all to see!

[Chorus (x2):]
I'm spilling open it's killing all of me!
And I hate I've become from what's been done to me!

Homecoming queens are pretty from being dressed in pink...
But perfume can't disguise a pig and I can smell her stink...
Miss Ann Thrope once said to me with words that tasted sweet
But now the slaughterhouse has turned her voice to meat!

Not everybody's everything they ever claim to be,
Not everything is black and white friend or mine enemy...
I guess it doesn't really matter when there's nothing left...
Sometimes you gotta let it go and just enjoy the death!




5. COLD HANDS WARM HEART

In the sunshine of an otherwise cloudy day, do you believe in fate...
Come what may?
I've been heavy and I've been light, I've been the one stayin up all night...
I've been low and I've been high...
Been the first to try

[Chorus (x2):]
And I know my dark cold hands, warm heart save me from myself!

In the darkness of an otherwise sunny day, do you believe in fate, come what may?
I've been strong and I've been wear, I've been the one unafraid to speak...
I've been wrong and I've been right...
Been the first to fight!

[Chorus]

When I die, bury me underneath the weeping tree...
And when I rise... carry me to the hills, for all to see!

My life, the brutal language of being in love!
Why lie, the brutal language of being in
My life, the brutal language of being in love!
Why lie... The brutal language of being in love!




6. METAMORPHOSIS

Take me down to the river bed clean the sheets on which I bled...
Four white horses come for me there's no way to comfort me...
Soak my secrets in a box bury them beneath the rocks...
Dressed in dirt you cover me hope he won't discover me...
Watch my body turning cold, watch my body... Let me go!
Tell the truth, kill the tracks, there will be no coming back...
Pretend that we don't have a past, let this friendship die at last!
Watch my body turning cold, watch my body... Let you go!

[Chorus:]
Religion is telationships, what you see is what you get!
Slip into unconsciousness, my metamorphosis!

Arms, hands, see her with her imperfections!
Bones, skin, resurrection is her sin!
Arms, hands, see me with my imperfections!
Bones, skin, resurrection is my sin!

Think of me and close your eyes use up all your alibis!
Drink yourself to my last breath tell them all about my death!
Murder me with all your lies, but I am still alive!
Promise that you will forget I'll remember all of it!

[Chorus]

All sensation has now left me... save that which keeps my heart still beating!




7. SUMMER OF HELL

Please, please forgive me, there was no way I could go...
I drown my sorrows underwater, in the snow!
And I'm tired of lying!
I'm tried of trying!
I'm tired of living!
I feel like I'm dying!

[Chorus:]
In my summer of hell I swear I won't tell in my summer of hell I swear I won't tell!
I won't tell!
I won't tell!
I won't tell you!

Please don't you worry, there is so much I can't say...
I numb my body in the morning, yesterday!
And I'm tired of lying!
I'm tired of trying!
I'm tired of living!
I feel like I'm dying!

[Chorus]

Hey this is your day, congratulations!
They are the last days, conspiracy theories!
Hey this is my day, congratulate me!
These are the new days of death (and romance)




8. VINCE VAUGHN

Well I know you're the money honey don't tell me,
If you get it here in ten you'll get it for free...
And we can give it a floor run, see if it plays...
'cause you're a tall drink of water baby, you're so made!
This is how I do ah... This is how I do!

[Chorus:]
This is how I do
I'll do it all night long yeah,
This is how I do
It just like Vince Vaughn!

Well it's so fucking on when you flash that smile...
Common let's party California gangster style!
A little bit of the shh... little bit of the bad...

9. IMITATION OF CHRIST

Mouth just like a guillotine!
Tell me how to stop the bleeding...
Thugs and bigots let them stare!
At the one who isn't there...
God is absent silly fools!
All you have are devil's tools...
Imagination is my murder!
Christ is dead so he can't hurt her...

[Chorus:]
Jesus saves but not tonight, he's too busy getting high...
I'm too mean and you're too nice, imitation of Christ!
Mary kills when she's on pills, this is how she gets her thrills...
I'm too bored to give a fuck, say your prayers I wish you. Luck!

Eyes that look like suicide, show me where to run and hide...
All the priests are occupied, who will be the next to die?
Lovely are the bones of time, and someday I will leave you mine...
Inspiration comes from death, that's what the bible says!

[Chorus]

Pick a muse, a handsome man, rest my gazes upon him!
Arching hands and swollen feet, beware this burden of my heat!
Sacrifice me, lay me down and slowly slice me!
Soothe and loath me, burn me at the stake then hold me!
Whisper in my ear then scold me, stone me stone me, you can't break me!
On the flaming couch you take me, there's no way you can make me...

Tell the truth to my lips, betray me with a Judas kiss!
3 times I knew that you'd deny me, love like blood will crucify me...
Passion I can't overcome face my past and what I've done...
Testimony of a liar, god is dead, but I'm on... I'm on fire... I'm on fire...




10. TOUCH ME I'M SICK (MUDHONEY)
