Track Name: Pig Farmer Kills 26 Women
Devil standin' on the side of the road
countin' his wins
lickin' the bones
Devil whisperin' in both of his ears
"The radio stations are giving me tears"

Do I look like I'm homicidal?
I gotta ghost but I know how to hide it
Yeah I fill 'em up hale and hearty
he's got a secret
it's easy to sin

It's so wrong it's my headline story
Hide the bodies in the bellies
It's so sick it's my twisted story
Hide to corpses in balogna

Why do all you women want regular kids?
Regular kids just grow up and die
Go up a size, shifting the eyes
A beautiful chest just increases the lies
Why do all the birdies wanna build up their nest 'til their limbs fall off?
Cracked eggs all dead
It's a shame to stand in line
Beautiful kids just grow up and die

He is not your dad
Beta fish are bad
Hell consumes your mind until it kicks your ass
until it kicks your ass.
Track Name: Scary Colors
I sleep with a nun and it's startin' to burn
I'm starin' at the sun and it's startin' to turn its head sayin', "I don't like you"

Yeah it's over
I need to repent my sins
Yeah it's over
I need to repent my sins

I sleep with a nun and it's startin' to burn
I'm starin' at the sun and it's startin' to change his clothes and go to bed
'cause

Yeah it's over
I need to repent my sins
(4x)
Track Name: Look
Everything you say you want, you got it
I bet you would look a lot better naked

I've got a heartache
hard to fix it
kiss your angel bye bye
It's a problem
you try to fix it
hard to fight it
in your face

Everything you know you are, you aren't
I bet you would look a lot better naked

It's not what they thought
it's what they made up
they just control you for the gain
It's a problem
hard to fix it
try to fight it...

well it's a proverb
that I should probably get out
in a depiction...
What do you wanna see?
a banana show?
I'm a victim of the culture.
Track Name: Bad Girl
He'll kiss your blues away until you say, "I'm full"
He'll cross your brains with bones and permeate your skull
You would trade your white and lace in place of all the pain
It is only innocence escaping through your veins

...escaping through your veins
Bad girl
escaping through your veins

I lie to whom I speak but I don't lie to you
I imitate the lines that I believed were true
It's crazy to believe in things you know but cannot see
I grew the pomegranate and you picked out all the seeds

...you picked out all the seeds
Bad girl
you picked out all the seeds

I lie just to torture you because you already know
I try to beg and plead but you would just rather know
I try to hand you meat but you just want in my tune
I try to get in between but you just want in my tune

You only want in my tune
Bad girl
you only want in my tune
Track Name: Skeletons
Change your attitude right now
Leave your solitude somehow
My angel would always hide
but he came outside in the night

I am sorry for your hell
I am sorry for your hell
I am sorry for your hell
I am sorry for your hell
Ring the bell

Stay inside my head for good
Stay inside my head for good
I miss the way you would haunt my dreams and write my lines

I am sorry for your hell
I am sorry for your hell
I am sorry for your hell
I am sorry for your hell
Ring the bell
Track Name: Bad Wall of Mongolia
I don't have anyone to guide me through the sea of dead souls rotting in place
Fall through to the opposite side
I'm there, rotting in place
stuck on you and you're sorry
(2x)

It's in your blood
It's in your bones
It's all around you
You're not alone

All the clouds will smile at you when everything has passed
'cause when your life is over yeah it happened really fast
So do the things that light you up and make you feel alive
'cause who knows what will happen but at least you'll know you tried.
