Track Name: THAT MAN THAT YOU KNEW IS DEAD
that man that you knew is dead / said that man that you knew is dead / got a knife in the back of the heart / and a bullet through the front of his head / yeah that man that you knew is dead / hey that man that you knew is dead / you were there with a dull blade in hand when he fell to the pavement and bled / well that man that you knew is dead / yeah that man that you knew is dead / i was there when he prayed for forgiveness and fed himself one shot of lead / yeah that man that you knew is dead / said that man that you knew is dead / his body’s been burned and it’s buried beneath the wood planks at the foot of my bed / said that man that you knew is dead / yeah that man that you knew is dead / oh that man that you knew is dead / and you ain’t never gonna see him again
Track Name: ARABIA
re-awaken your inner fear / i know that it's hard / but it's already here / you can hide from your demons / or shake their feared hands / you can embrace the heathens / or hide your head in the sand / denial is bliss / but so is the meantime / the truth is what's missed / we travel for lifetimes / the time is among us / we should enter with pride / like deserted circus / with nowhere to hide
Track Name: GUNMETAL BLUES
this is a story ‘bout a boy / ain’t got no friends / ain’t got no joy / not full of evil by design / but by his birth and by his sign / well he was born with cloven tongue / they cut it out when he was young / they sewed his lips shut with a thread / oh! no more wicked words were said

he learned to keep it deep inside / he had no voice / he had no pride / he learned to hide it like a thief / and turn to drinking for relief / he wandered through his weeks and years / he showed no smile / shed no tears / cause he has drunk the blood of love / and he has ate the turtle dove

he had a wife / he had a home / an axe to grind / a blade to hone / a loaded gun is lots of fun / yeah when he’s drunk and all alone / he always knew the walls would fall / he always knew the flames would rise / he always knew that he would burn / and you could see it in his eyes

so won’t you tell me could you choose / to walk a mile in his shoes / if you only knew that you would lose / to those goddamn gunmetal blues?
Track Name: NOOSE
you’re a noose that i should have hung myself with / a self-fired bullet that barely missed / a poison consumed / but i am immune / such a daring devil / such a careless kiss

blood / once / red / bled / black
Track Name: LULLABY
first he slips inside your house / and then he slips inside your room / and then he slips beneath your sheets / and then he slips between your lips / but you’ve been waiting for him / and you’ve been dreaming of him / but you cannot remember / if he is just a nightmare

he walks around inside your house / he walks around inside your room / he climbs right through your well-barred window / climbs inside your well-kept womb / do you think that you’re still dreaming / do you think that you’re awake / tell me do you feel the danger / like the same way he feels safe

when he’s slipping through your window / and he’s standing in your room and he’s slipped between your sheets / yeah he’s slipped between your lips x2

now he is inside of you / tell me can you feel him there / well now he is alive in you / you make a lovely pair

and you are not alone tonight / you have a friend inside of you / no you are not alone tonight / you have a ghost inside of you
Track Name: IF WE ARE GODS
i met a whore from baltimore / she said that i should come inside / said we could make it come alive / and then she said we’d make it die / we wouldn’t cry / we gave it life / and then she said we’d make it die / ‘cause we are gods / we are alive / and we can make things live and die

NOW I WANNA BE YOUR GOD / NOW I WANNA FEEL ALIVE / NOW I WANNA BE YOUR GOD / NOW I WANNA MAKE THINGS DIE

i met a girl from carolina / came inside and then we dined / i drank her wine / and built a shrine / and then i tied her up with twine / i whispered if i gave it life / well then i have to make it die / cause we are gods / we are alive / and we must make things live and die

NOW I NEED TO BE YOUR GOD / NOW I NEED TO FEEL ALIVE / NOW I NEED TO BE YOUR GOD / NOW I NEED TO MAKE THINGS DIE / NOW I’M GONNA BE YOUR GOD / NOW I’M GONNA FEEL ALIVE / NOW I’M GONNA BE YOUR GOD / NOW I’M GONNA MAKE THINGS DIE

if we are gods / we are alive / and we can make things live and die / if we are gods / we are alive / and we can make things live and die
Track Name: CALL ME BY MY TAKEN NAME (KING VILE)
i am not an average man / i am a king in exile / i haven’t got a nickel / but i spit and piss in style / oh! / i dance and prance and strut and chant around my little pile / cause i’ve taken something from you / something sacred to defile / no i haven’t got a single friend / my taken name is vile / and i told you sugar-coated lies / i stapled on a smile / but i stole a little keepsake / and i keep it in a vial / and you can call me by my taken name / i am KING VILE!
