1. DR. SUESS IS DEAD

Dr. Suess is dead
We await... Life
Dr. Suess is dead

A cloud of flies obscure the sun
A stone is dropped
A dream undone
Ripples grow and ride the tide
The dead things crawls from deep inside

With it's dying
Sour breath
The burning smell of insect flesh
Hungry things in circles crowd
Around t.v.'s turned up too loud

We are the dead next door
Turned up to loud
Where the dirty needles shine and litter the floor
It's too fucking loud
Taste the light, inject the lord
It's too fucking loud
I cut my self again because I'm so fucking bored
It's too fucking loud
We are the dead next door
It's too fucking loud
Where the dirty needles shine and litter the floor
It's too fucking loud
Taste the light, inject the lord
It's too fucking loud
I cut my self again because I'm so fucking bored
Motherfuck yeah!

We await...life
Dr. Suess is dead

The dream is swirling
I'm alone
Where the streets are paved with bone
Buildings with a hundred eyes
Watch me through the swarming flie

Behind shade pulled down tight
Things are growing without light

Hungry things in circles crowd
Around t.v.'s turned up too loud

We are the dead next door
Turned up to loud
Where the dirty needles shine and litter the floor
It's too fucking loud
Taste the light, inject the lord
It's too fucking loud
I cut my self again because I'm so fucking bored
It's too fucking loud
We are the dead next door
It's too fucking loud
Where the dirty needles shine and litter the floor
It's too fucking loud
Taste the light, inject the lord
It's too fucking loud
I cut my self again because I'm so fucking bored
Motherfuck yeah!

The dream sea has been poisoned
Stoplight flashes me red
Innocence sufficated in it's sleep
Dr. Suess is dead
The dream sea has been poisoned
Stoplight flashes me red
Innocence sufficated in it's sleep
Dr. Suess is dead
Dead
Dead
Dead
He's fucking dead




2. WHAT COLOUR IS DEATH

What color is death?
The shade of an ice pick sinking into flesh
Sex and sex and sex and death
I don't want you, I want your flesh
Close my eyes and dream of death
Slip away and take a breath
Rivers running dark and cool
How can nothingness be cruel? (verse x2)

Trip with me and meet the sun, orgasm of light
Suck the world inside yourself, splitting forth the night
Douse their minds in gasoline, drop the burning match
Angel light, alien love, I wait for them to hide

I listen to the trees, they hum and hold hands with the moon
Insects whisper sweet nothings, the solar system blooms
The skulls of babies grow within the garden of the soul
Where the girls run barefoot and all life lives uncontrolled

Come on baby let's kick back and bleed with me awhile
Never mind the cold black truth
That stains the kitchen tile (verse x2)




3. SCREAM OF THE BUTTERFLY

A creature made of sunshine
Her eyes were like the sky
Rabbit howls like something old
As we twitch to a lullaby
The scapel shines in god's sunshine
The Streetlights whisper pain
Down here near the poison stream
Our god has gone insane

She smiles like a child with flowers in her hair
With blood on her hands
Into the sun she stares
She feels it die
I heard her cry

She smiles like a child with flowers in her hair
With blood on her hands
Into the sun she stares
She feels it die
I heard her cry...
Like the scream of the butterfly

Sunshine in the house of flames
She loves it where she gets it
But it's never felt the same
Surgery, in the house of dissection
When your candle burns out..i'll resurrect you
She runs
Through fields of daisies
Yeah, it's just a shame that they eat their own babies
Who cares
Cos the air is free
When you get there will you kiss the dead for me?

There's blood on the moon and the summer is cold
There's love in the room
But baby that's getting old
There's blood on my face sittin' on uhh dead shore
A highway,highway of emptiness and I'm getting bored

There's blood on the moon as we plan our escape
The goddess in bloom
Handcuffed and raped
There's blood in the bathtub baby
Murder the king
There's blood on the moon
There's blood on just about everything

Sunshine in the house of flames
She loves it where she gets it
But it's never felt the same
Surgery, in the house of dissection
When your candle burns out..i'll resurrect you
She runs
Through fields of daisies
Yeah, it's just a shame that they eat their own babies
Who cares
Cos the air is free
When you get there will you kiss the dead for me?

Something cold is forced inside her
A tears spill down her cheek
Stillborn songs of a dead dreamer
Hymn's of a needle freak

With sunlight in her hair she smiles like she don't care
Her dreams of liquid blue
I cut my self again and again to remind myslef of you

She smiles like a child with flowers in her hair
With blood on her hands
Into the sun she stares
She feels it die
I heard her cry...
She smiles like a child with flowers in her hair
With blood on her hands
Into the sun she stares
She feels it die
I heard her cry...
Like the scream of the butterfly
I like the scream of the butterfly

I met an angel with a sawed-off shotgun
Wanted by the FBI
We dropped some acid
Killed our parents
Then we hit the road

I like the scream of the butterfly




4. GOD MACHINE

Strapped into the chair the needle now descents as they lick
Their cracking lips their twitching never ends blood beneath
Their finger nails, swallow all my pain dirty needles break
The skin now suck hard as I drain sunken eyes, a twisted spine
A whiter shade of pale rockabilly man come to pound the coffin
Nails inject my stomach full of cockroach eggs their machine
Is coming carried on a million legs waking in the sleep of
Reason winter is the forever season lick thy mother's bleeding
Lips from this glass of hate we sip fuck the glass we pump the
Keg kill conception at the egg her chin is wet with someone's
Hate love, disfigure, amputate can you remember how it felt to
Be alive? Your god machine is cold and dead your eyes they
Cannot cry fuck you deities of dying love we have shot them
Down from the skies above screaming convulsing my eyes are
Bleeding be silent now and take you beating I wonder how long
You would live with a bullet un your gut I wonder how much
Shit you'd talk if your throat was cut I wonder what you'd
Sound like begging me to let you breath I wonder how much pain
It would take to make you all beleive




5. MORTICIAN'S FLAME:

Hunter of tears, relative pain
Half of this world is dark with the stain
The stain of unknowing the dead flower buds
On smiling lips is innocent blood
The corpse of your God can only rot and grow cold
Now promise me you'll kill me before I get old
I heard you on the telephone moaning my doom
A cold woman will kill me in a darkened room
The chain-saw of the mortician shines
I still got all my fingers but somewhere I lost my mind
I can smell abortion on you I can see thru
I take the gun out of my moth and point it at you




6. DOPE FIEND

Why do you love, to lick my wounds why do you love to twist my
Pain, why do you love to suck! My life why do you look so dead
Kill me I'm a dope fiend do not touch me for I am unclean kill
You television do it for god kill the corpse holding the cre-
Dit card screaming insects hail the queen welcome the killer
Home hold me close to your dead heart and let the rapist roam
Put your bloody hands on me whisper in my ear burning bodies
Keep us warm and have for a million years yeah mothe r fucker
I'm high and I'm thankful just to be alive




7. FINGER PAINTINGS OF THE INSANE

Turning the knife buried in your stomach I woke up alive black
With stain glistening and new the sunset's coming fingerpain-
Tings of the insane come on and sterilize me kneel down and
Idolize me suck me fuck me resurrect me rut me cut me and
Infect me slice me dice me I wanna die screamin the thoughts
Of dead babies wiped away with my semen bleed me feed me and
Inject me feel me, kill me then dissect me the pigs will sque-
Al their blood will drain finger paintings of the insane slice
The throat of authority imagining infinity greasy smoke bil-
Lows into the sky coach roach dreams, the human dust of pain
Twitching screaming hide your razor face finger paintings of
The insane bloody mountain momma rockabilly machine kiddy porn
Lover with a mouth for disease giddy'up honey my rubber fuck
Doll when your candle's snuffed out i'll burn brighter than
Before pink poinsttias for emotion that died a chilling war-
Gasm that feels like cyanide her pussy bleeds sunshine, rabid
For flesh as each raindrop plunges to its death




8. JEZEBEL

Her throat is soft her lips are red her thighs re white her
Heart is dead jezabell red rope burns around her wrists her
Blood is cold a serpent's kiss do you need love whore? I like
To hear you beg she's crouched down in the corner with her
Hands between her legs jezabell broken glass and dirty need-
Les, soul erosion truth electric god our superman found dead
In a telephone booth shards of teeth ice pick abortions orgas-
Mic death, so warm let's die screamin' black goat semen I
Can't hear you whisper 'conform' hearts will stop and brain
Cells pop apocalyptic sunshine high she screams bloody murder
As they chop off her fingers so this is how it feels to die
But it's o.k. She was screamin' bout conspiracy talkin' bout
Takin' sides I was masturbating just contemplating the cold
Love of suicide, hearts will stop and brain cells pop apoca-
Lyptic sunshine high she screams bloody murder as they chop
Off her fingers so this is how it feels to die




9. BLUE

(Instrumental)




10. CHEAP VODKA

I blew my last five on a cheap fifth of vodka
Gonna kill somethin'
There ain't nothing gonna stop us tonight
I know about confusion
Lets start a riot
Lets start a war
Everybody that you know is a whore

Fuck it, fuck it, fuck it, I don't care
If there's gonna be blood, we'll be there

I know about confusion
Turn on all the lights
So I can watch it die
I'm gonna taste some blood
Before they close my eyes
Because I got the answer
One bullet

I know ..how you feel

Cut out my eyes...So I can't see
The cold thing that's swallowing me

We're meat and that's it
So lets fuck it, fuck it, fuck it




11. BONES OF BABY DOLLS

Flower girls play lover
Grave games in the courtyard
I heard her screaming like a radio

Flower girls play lover
Grave games in the courtyard
I heard her screaming like a radio

Mary lou left marks on you
She just screams at the walls
The kite string pops
I'm swallowed whole by the sky
We smoke the bones of baby dolls
Techno-liquid screaming meat
Heaven's cold beneath my feet
Cyber love the anti-man we make love... Because we can

Virgins play where the bayou's blue
Barefoot (and bloody) eatin' mushroom stew
Work for pay and pay for freedom
Fuck 'em all, we don't need 'em
We smoke the bones of baby dolls

Everything's gone dry
Like bottle glass scraping cross the pavement
Everything's gone dry
Like bottle glass scraping cross the pavement
Everything's gone dry
Like bottle glass scraping cross the pavement
Everything's gone dry
Like bottle glass scraping cross the pavement




12. CASSIE EATS COCKROACHES

I feel the wetness of her tongue
That slides across my skin
The viruses crawl over me and feel for some way in
Cassie loves to swallow
This bleeding will not stop
I left cassie hollow
Cut you with my cock
Cassie likes it in her hand
Cassie's dead inside
I came to fuck the open wound
So hold it open wide
Cassie loves to swallow
This bleeding will not stop
I left cassie hollow
Cut you with my cock

Take me into the ocean
Lay me out on her shore
Wake me when the sun burns out
And we'll run forever more
We're all gonna die tomorrow
The freaks are screaming burn it down
She can't feel the weather
I can't touch the ground
Pale and twitching,
Twisting to the cold dance
Watching the room grow old
A funeral romance
Somewhere, someone's screaming that the world's gone
Smear me with your blood
And let these dead boys play their grave songs
Suck
Slide across the warm red floor
To meet me
Lock the bathroom door before they crawl
To eat me
Cut her throat
And whisper that we're going home
Twitching to the cold dance
They suck the meat from her bones
Suck
Suck
Suck




13. TOUBABO KOOMI

We wanna see some blood we need a new whore we don't give a
Fuck we just want some more we want blood I'm gonna fuck the
Hole in kennedy's head revolt deface resist push the button
Legalize freedom let's shoot the president, rape the queen and
Feel the flowers breath again inside this dead machine I'm
Wading into nowhere thrill kill avenue, cuttin her slowly
Liberty, she crawled to me the lines that define begin to gray
And fade now shove it inside her specto-trippin on I slept the
Last mile on our way to endsville spread your legs, don't look
At me cut me rape me make me free breeders screaming dreaming
Loveless for the bloodless white sound, oceans of dreams I
Won't be another number on the screen shhh: I wanna hear you
Scream I won't be another number white sound, dead black scre-
Am vomiting this cold mass of hate I'm gonna push my love thru
Her skull I have heard abortion stories from the leather nun
Holding hands with dead girls hiding from the sun the lines
That define begin to gray and fade now we shoot out the lights
And swallow razor blades I feel nothing for the meat that came
Before liberty, she crawled to me playing the whore




14. TRANQUILIZED

Sedated and lazy, cold skies full of blue
The sun burns forever, it reminds me of you
On your dead shore the sand is warm
She hides her tears and quickly lets it die
I will make it through even without you
My sky will be blue, I live tranquilized

Slow motion, liquid universe I'm feeling nowhere
It don't matter where we're goin' 'cause I already been there
On your dead shore the sand is warm
She hides her tears and quickly lets it die
They're dying of rabies, eating their babies
In fields of dead daisies, I live tranquilized

I live... I live... I live... I live...
I live... I live... I live... I live...
Tranquilized

I'm numb and unfeeling
So I just burn and stare at the ceiling
I'm here but so far away
I see your mouth movin' but can't hear what you say
And I don't think I give a fuck anyway




15. VENUS BLUE

Creeping like frost
As slow as grave moss
Like drowning in dry oceans of bone dust
I taste the wreckage of crumbling faces
I know the pale thing in the darkest of places
I remember blood from the thighs of the mother
As everything is eaten by another
How much more must we bleed her
I cut their throats while they slept
I wept
I peel back my skull for you
Yes I do
Slow desolation like a funeral procession
The lovely one screams like she's caught between stations
I eat the razor, a mouthful of God's flesh
Sweating this blackness,
I am shitting this cold death
I remember blood from the thighs of the mother
As everything is eaten by another
How much more must we bleed her
I cut their throats while they slept
I wept
I peel back my skull for you
Yes I do
DEAD VENUS BLUE
Love is rotting on the vine
Crumbling in God's sunshine
I am dying all the time
Point me at the sky... Sky
How much more must we bleed her
I cut their throats while they slept
I wept
I peel back my skull for you
Yes I do
DEAD VENUS BLUE
How much more must we bleed her
I cut their throats while they slept
I wept
I peel back my skull for you
Yes I do
DEAD VENUS BLUE
I taste the wreckage of crumbling faces
I know the pale thing in the darkest of places




16. BLEED ME AN OCEAN

Let the blackness roll on
Mother's cool reptilian womb
Ain't so cold tonight
My fingers trace the exit wounds
By graveyard light
There's bone dust in my throat and everything is DEAD
But it's all right
Take it easy
You bleed so easy
Bleed me an ocean
Bleed me an ocean tonight
By electric graveyard light
Bleed me an ocean
Let me lie beneath the sky
Teach me how to die
Bleed me an ocean
As the blossom eats the butterfly
Can you feel the cold death
That rides along your spine
Let the blackness roll on
You bleed so easy
Let the blackness roll on
I was sexless in clouds again
I was chasing a cold, cold wind
I've become bored with flesh and bone again
The deepest alone
I was riding the turbulence
An ocean of Hades
It's all downhill from here
On the outer nowhere
Let the blackness roll on
You bleed so easy
Let the blackness roll on
I was stoned to the drone
Of the blackness that hums
I've become bored with flesh and bone again
The endless hum of the highway drone
I was riding the turbulence
An ocean of Hades
The taste of dead sex on my tongue
On my tongue, yeah
Let the blackness roll on
You bleed so easy
Let the blackness roll on
You bleed so easy
Just like a rain drop
I was born baby to fall
And scale these prison walls
It was over before you were born
Sucked into the vacuum of this universal tomb
It was over before you were born
Sucked into the vacuum of this universal tomb
Old blossom dies
Like a young man breathes
The insects hum with their hunger and grieve
An icon of pale bone
Static white dream
Blind in the wilderness
Everybody scream
I couldn't find my way
Out the door
We all died
Woke up on the floor
I ride the painted whore
She gives good universal scream, scream
I ride the painted whore
She gives good universal scream, scream
I ride the painted whore
She gives good universal scream, scream
I ride the painted whore
She gives good universal scream, scream




17. GRAVEFLOWER

Like Murder
Stoned I awoke in your temple
To blackness above you
And death beside me
Where kitchen knives conspire
Razor blades make bloodless love
Like Murder
The ghost of a pale girl is solemnly following me
Pale will she follow me
Into the sea
I feel the flowers screaming
To consume you
Like Murder
Earth and sky your cradle
Earth and sky entomb you
And death beside me
I burrow through the dust
In your skull
But I cannot seem to find your soul
Bloodless and numb
We orbit the sun
Hungry will this pale thing
Follow me into the sea
On the cold side of her face
The reptiles awake
Locust swarm from open mouths
That sing thy kingdom come
While blackness hums
Nothing is true
And I'm tired of your sad today
You're screaming because
There's nothing left for you to say
Bloodless and numb
We orbit the sun
Hungry will this pale thing
Follow me into the sea
Stoned I awoke in your temple
To blackness above you
And death beside me
Where kitchen knives conspire
Razor blades make bloodless love
Like Murder
