Lyrics

1. THE MISINTERPRETATION OF SILENCE AND ITS DISASTROUS CONSEQUENCES

[Previously unreleased remix]
[Original version can be found on the album Slow Deep and Hard]

(Instrumental)




2. EVERYONE I LOVE IS DEAD

[Previously unreleased edit]
[Full length version can be found on the album World Coming Down]

Seems three years - though maybe four
Someone drops dead - whom I adore
You love someone - there will be grief
The kiss of death - lips of a thief - goddammit

A dusty stack of photographs
Of times I cried - but mostly laughed
Commit the past - into blue flame
Acrid smoke - cowardly shame - goddammit

At times I'm truly terrified
Cause dope and booze - don't help to hide
They're used to mask - a weakling's hurt
It's just like painting - over dirt

Everyone I love is - dead - everyone I love is - dead - all dead

Life's a game I cannot win
Both good and bad - must surely end
The mirrors - always tell the truth
I love myself for hating you

Everyone I love is - dead - everyone i love is - dead
Everyone I love is - dead - everyone i love is - dead - goddammit

Goddammit

All dead - all dead
All dead all dead all dead all dead all dead all dead all dead
All dead - all dead
Goddammit




3. BLACK NO. 1

[Previously unreleased edit]
[Full length version can be found on the album Bloody Kisses]

I went looking for trouble and boy - I found her

She's in love with herself - she likes the dark
On her milk white neck - the Devil's mark

Now it's all Hallows Eve - the moon is full
Will she trick or treat - I bet she will
She will - happy halloween - baby

She's got a date at midnight - with Nosferatu
Oh baby, Lilly Munster - ain't got nothing on you

Well when I called her evil - she just laughed
Well cast that spell on me - boo bitch craft

Yeah you wanna go out 'cause it's raining and blowing
You can't go out 'cause your roots are showing
Dye em black - dye em black

Black black black black No. 1
Black black black black No. 1

Little wolf skin boots - and clove cigarettes
An erotic funeral - for witch she's dressed
Her perfume smells like - burning leaves
Everyday is halloween

Yeah you wanna go out 'cause it's raining and blowing
You can't go out 'cause your roots are showing
Dye em black - dye em black

Black black black black No. 1
She dyes em black black black black No. 1

Loving you - loving you - love love loving you was like loving the dead
loving you - loving you love love loving you was like - loving the dead

Loving you was like loving the dead - loving you was like loving
The dead - loving you was like loving the dead
Was like loving the dead - was like loving the dead - was like
Loving the dead

Sacre bleu

Loving you - loving you - love love loving you was like loving
The dead - was like fucking the dead
Loving you was like loving the dead - loving you was like loving
The dead - loving you was like loving the dead - was like loving
The dead
Loving you - loving you - loving you - loving you - loving you -
Loving you
Was like loving the dead
Was like loving the dead
Was like loving the dead

Black black black black No. 1
She dyes it black black black black No. 1

Ooh yeah

Black black black black No. 1
Black black black black No. 1




4. IT'S NEVER ENOUGH

[Previously unreleased]
[From the recording sessions of World Coming Down]

Fuck you god
Fuck you god
Fuck you god

With my blood, time, sweat and tears
My goal is to dissolve her fears
Fuck you god Self-imposed imprisonment
In this way feels she must repent - must repent

In a cell denial made
Break the lock, free her from her cage
Fuck you god Realizing her days be few
Just want to make her comfortable - comfortable

No matter what I do
No matter what I do
It's never enough

No matter what I do
No matter what I do
It's never enough

Don't take her

I'll lose my mind
When it's her time
She's so scared, it's unbearable
Can't believe god could be so cruel
So cruel

She held me tight
Childhood fright
I'm so scared, there's no remedy
But so glad for the memories
So glad

Fuck you god
Fuck you god
Fuck you god
Fuck you god

For her one day undestroyed
I'd give my soul or life with joy
Fuck you god
Angel face of saintly love
I curse christ that she suffers such - suffers such

No matter what I do
No matter what I do
It's never enough

No matter what I do
No matter what I do
It's never enough

No matter what I do
No matter what I do
It's never enough - never enough - never enough - never enough




5. LOVE YOU TO DEATH

[Edit - taken from the European single Love You To Death, 1996]
[Full length version can be found on the album October Rust]

In her place one hundred candles burning - as salty sweat drips
From her breast
Her hips move and I can feel what they're saying - swaying
They say the beast inside of me is gonna get ya - get ya get -
Yeah

Black lipstick stains - her glass of red wine - I am your servant
May I light your cigarette
Those lips smooth yeah I can feel what you're saying - praying
They say the beast inside of me is gonna get ya - get ya get -
Yeah

I beg to serve - your wish is my law
Now close those eyes - and let me love you to death
Shall I prove - I mean what I'm saying - begging
I say the beast inside of me is gonna get ya - get ya get

Ahhhh - let me love you - to - ahhhh - let me love you - to -
Death - to death

Ahhhh - let me love you - to - ahhhh - let me love you - to -
Death - to death

Hey am I good enough - for you
Am I good enough - for you
Am I - am I for you - am I - for you
Am I good enough - for you




6. BLACK SABBATH (FROM THE SATANIC PERSPECTIVE)

[Taken from the European single My Girlfriend's Girlfriend, 1996]
[This cover originally appeared on Black Sabbath tribute album Nativity In Black,]
[but this rare version has Peter Steele's own lyrics, sung from the perspective of Lucifer.]

Who is she that kneels - so respectfully before me
A virgin of snow white - purity
Do not fear - my fortunate one
Let us consummate our igneous union

Ave ave satanas
Ave ave satanas
Ave ave satanas
Ave ave satanas

I am the shadow - with the eyes, eyes of fire
I will fulfill your every - hellish desire
Come sit on this throne - here beside me and be mine
And we'll watch the flames get higher and higher and higher
And higher...

Ave ave satanas
Ave ave satanas
Ave ave satanas
Ave ave satanas

This is just the start dear friends
For i have come to claim revenge
My victims turning, running scared
You people better go and beware

Your weak god can not help you now

Come, we will play in the fire

Worship the sun
Worship no one
Worship the sun
Worship no one
Worship the sun
Worship no one




7. CHRISTIAN WOMAN

[Edit - taken from the European single Christian Woman, 1993]
[Full length version can be found on the album Bloody Kisses]

Forgive her for she knows not what she does

A cross upon her bedroom wall - from grace she will fall
An image burning in her mind - and between her thighs

A dying god-man full of pain - when will you cum again?
Before him beg to serve or please - on your back or knees

No forgiveness for her sins - prefers punishment
Would you suffer eternally - or internally - ah

For her lust - she'll burn in hell - her soul done medium well
All through mass manual stimulation - salvation

Corpus christi - she needs - corpus christi - corpus christi

Corpus christi - she needs - corpus christi - corpus christi
Body of Christ - she needs - body of Christ - body of christ

She'd like to know - God - love - God - feel her God - inside of
Her - deep inside of her - ah

She'd like to know - God - love - God - feel feel feel her god -
Inside of her - deep inside of her

Inside of her - deep inside of her

Jesus christ looks like me - jesus christ - jesus christ looks
like me - jesus christ

Jesus christ looks like me - jesus christ oh - jesus christ looks
like me - jesus christ - ah

Jesus christ looks like me - jesus christ yeah - jesus christ
Looks like me yea
Jesus christ oh - jesus christ looks like me - jesus christ -
Yeah - jesus christ looks like me - jesus christ oh




8. 12 BLACK RAINBOWS

[Taken from the European single Everything Dies, 1999]
[From the recording sessions of World Coming Down]

Idle hands may be the devil's work
Unbridled minds you see are so much worse
Too much pity spent and wasting time
Irresponsibility not my only crime no

Obsessive thinking, depressed drinking
The person I once was, he's dead
Exhume the past this time or be my last
This is my final quest to remove my mask yeah

Don't be afraid as she pulled down the shade
Said there's nothing to fear but the monster is here
So just tell me the time, be it quarter of nine
Since the sun's gone away, now the creature will play

Ice blue eyes follow me everywhere I go
Making my heart appear as lead
I hate to wish it but I'll tell you though
That I'm quite ready 'cause I'm already dead

Don't be afraid as she pulled down the shade
Said there's nothing to fear but the monster is here
So just tell me the time, be it quarter of nine
Since the sun's gone away, now the creature will play

Don't be afraid as she pulled down the shade
Said there's nothing to fear but the monster is here
So just tell me the time, be it quarter of nine
Since the sun's gone away, now the creature will play




9. MY GIRLFRIEND'S GIRLFRIEND (CHEESE ORGAN MIX)

[Previously unreleased alternative mix]
[Original version can be found on the album October Rust]

It's no secret we're close - as sweaty velcro
Like latex fur and feathers - stuck together

Now - in their '62 vette - sharing one cigarette
In a black light trance then - go go dance - then
Go go trance - then

They keep me warm on cold nights - it must be quite a sight
In our meat triangle - all tangled - wow

My girlfriend's girlfriend - she looks like - you
My girlfriend's girlfriend - she's my girl - too

Her and me and her and she and me - an uncrowded couple are we
Three
Hey we don't care - what people say - when walking hand in hand

Well I loved my aunt - but she died

I'm searching for something which can't be found - but i'm hoping
I still dream of dad - though he died

Everything dies - everything dies

Though my girl's quite fit - she will die

Still looking for someone who was around - barely coping

[Original version can be found on the album October Rust]

My cinnamon girl - my cinnamon girl

I wanna live with a cinnamon girl
I could be happy the rest of my life with her and I

A dreamer of pictures I run in the night - you see us together

Ten silver saxes a bass with a bow
The drummer relaxes waits between shows

You see us together chase the moonlight - all right

Pa sent me money now I's gonna make it somehow I need another
Chance
You see my baby loves to dance - yeah - yeah

Feels right
All night

My cinnamon girl - my cinnamon girl




13. UNSUCCESSFULLY COPING WITH THE NATURAL BEAUTY OF INFIDELITY

[Taken from the album Slow, Deep and Hard]

Trust and you'll be trusted - says the liar to the fool
Lust and so what if you're busted - in love and war there ain't
No rules

Do you believe in forever - I don't even believe in tomorrow
The only thing that last forever - are memories and sorrow

Kenny - ooh - ooh - alright check this out

Out of sight out of mind - the motto of betrayal
The prophets preach to forgive and forget - I'm sorry but I am
Unable

And don't think I don't know what you're doing you stupid twat

You went to L'amour saturday night - red nails and lipstick
Dressed two sizes two tight
His tongue down your throat - his hand up your skirt
Yeah I'm a man - but it still hurts

Slut - whore - cunt

I know you're fucking someone else
He knows you're fucking someone else
I know you're fucking someone else
He knows you're fucking someone else

You had cunt on your mind - and cum on your breath
Inserted that diaphragm before you left - practicing freelance
Gynecology
Where there's a womb there's a way - with you it's for free

Slut - you fucking whore - whore - youre a cunt - cunt

I know you're fucking someone else
He knows you're fucking someone else
I know you're fucking someone else
He knows you're fucking someone else

Done it before - time after time - refused to learn your lesson
Gave 'til it hurt - thought it was right - only fools make
Mistakes twice

So you sit home - drinking alone - empty bottle in your hand
Don't even try - to sort out the lies - it's worse to try to
Understand

You - you make me hate myself

I know you're fucking someone else
He knows you're fucking someone else
I know you're fucking someone else
He knows you're fucking someone else
I know you're fucking someone else
He knows you're fucking someone else
I know you're fucking someone else
He knows you're fucking someone else

I know
He knows
I said I know
He said he knows
I know - he knows - I know - he knows - I know - he knows
I know - he knows - I know - he knows - I know - he knows
I know




14. STAY OUT OF MY DREAMS

[Previously unreleased]
[From the recording sessions of World Coming Down]

I shant think of her when I'm awake
However in sleep I can't escape
A coney island high - when I get inside
All I ask is please stay out of my dreams

Near the streets of richmond and hylan
Dwells the princess of staten island
A seven dollar toll - will get me in her hole
All I ask is please stay out of my dreams

Though long gone, she won't let me forget
When at night I wake up in her sweat
A lonely brooklyn troll, - a ghost of red hook old
All I ask is please stay out of my dreams

With your straight black hair and emerald green eyes
Hippies pointing "that's Pete's sister in disguise"
Maybe you had uttered those words as a jest
I don't mind the allegations of incest

At the time I thought I could love no other
Till I heard you say that I was your brother
In your e-mail said how much we look like twins
How it turned you on just knowing it's a sin

Stay out of my dreams
I said, stay out of them
I said, stay out of my dreams
I said, stay out of my dreams

Stay out of my dreams
I said, stay out of them
I said, stay out of my dreams
I said, stay out of my - dreams
