Lyrics

What Up

What's up with men who shit the bed and act as if they never said
Their life was fucked with alcohol and driveling with a mind so small
What's up with men who pissed their pants and won't admit this happenstance?
What's up with wives who everyday choose to look the other way
What of our lives in time and place where problems still exist with race
And governments aren't ruled by man but corporate slime out on a scam
The news we hear not news at all but entertainment at the mall
And wars to feed the need for greed and raise the cash for quarter's blast

CHORUS
What up?
Shut up
Just play your part or you'll be dead
Pea brain
Shit stain
Hypnotized so we won't feel the dread

What's up is that the people pawns exist to feed the greedy thorns
These strangling thorns that rule our lives perpetuate the things we hate
It's all about the money tree that fails to assist you and me
But lines the pockets of the rich and screws and makes us be their bitch
We're all the bitch of wealthy cunts not joining their safari hunts
We can't afford their lavish suites so satisfy with puny tweets
We've all been lured into a spell that makes us sleep inside this hell
Until we wake and stand at least to find our strength, the scary beast
REPEAT CHORUS
BRIDGE
The time is now, now is the time
We must revolt and claim our rights
For those who snooze will truly lose
The bigger goal that's in our sights
CHORUS

Shitwrecked

I shit myself today
Lost all self control
I’m such a fucking mess
With duck tape it won’t show

I strap these feelings on
With grappling hooks and chains
And carefully contemplate
These guilt’s that leave fresh stains

CHORUS
Shitwrecked far from home
The crisis of my youth
Join my Battle zone
For your putrid proof
My mind a reservoir
Of crooked septic pain
My spirit still at war
With demons I won’t name

I drag my dog bit leg
Down streets of cobblestone
And wrap my bleeding soul
Round shamans I have known

In my cheater’s chair I lounge
And carefully castrate
My precious thoughts and dreams
To please the magistrate
CHORUS
Bridge
With a felon’s sense of honor
And convict’s custom creed
I grapple with dishonor
And steal just what I need
CHORUS

Witch's Brew

I’ve left you dear I’m through with you
My Facebook page confirms it’s true
I’ve found a man with loads of cash
Tonight we’ll have a victory bash

I’ve wandered near I’ve wandered far
I’ve sucked on Bourbon soaked cigars
They call me bitch they call me whore
The thing I always want is more

Chorus
Feed me Satan’s witch’s brew
I’m gone now I won’t stay with you
I’ve dumped the man whose child I bore
In favor of more earthly score
Feed me Satan’s witch’s brew
I’m gone now I won’t stay with you

The mystery march the pagan’s sins
This mother’s moral waste begins
I text you this divorce decree
I turn my back on what could be

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE
I am death I destroy life
I’ll kill this man who made me wife
I’ll drain his bank asset account
And then I’ll find someone to mount

REPEAT CHORUS

Adrenaline Rush

There's a hole in my life that I’m trying to fill
There’s a hole in my life and it threatens my will

Its deep and its dark, it swallows me whole
Its starting to smother my heart wrenching soul

I’m pushing and scraping and climbing each day
I’m struggling with learning to live life this way

My knuckles are skinned and my nails are all cracked
I’m gasping for breath, will I ever get back?
Will I ever get back?

That adrenalin rush ripping deep through your veins
The one bringing peace and absence of pain

The one where you feel all is right with the world
The one where your stress is completely unfurled

The one when you know that this deep in your life
They’ll be no more stress or soulful strife

Well that one’s all gone, I see it no more
I fear for life it’s flown out the door
Flown out the door

It’s hurting me now, I’m telling you straight
It’s causing me pain, the kind that I hate,
The kind that I hate

Evil Undressed

Hand on your thigh
Fangs to your neck
Fear says you know
Exactly what's next

Your passion is stroked
With loins on fire
Victim to this
Burning desire

chorus
as i sink
my teeth into you
orgasm of blood
to my rescue
i'm feeding my need
draining your best
licking my lips
evil undressed

With me at your side
You've lost all free will
Your cells now transform
From my glamoring skill

My toy for the night
New life born of death
Scorched fire light
I steal your last breath

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE
Priming the pump
Pulsing the vein
Stealing your life
Lust will drive you insane

REPEAT CHORUS

Final Escape

Mother earth
Far beyond my grasp
Take a breath
Will this be my last?
Planet earth
You’re still in my sight
Orbiting
Just can’t make this right

Fabled dreams
Lull me back to sleep
Heaven screams
Nothing left to keep
Crystal clear
Promised memories
Bone dry tears
Death will set me free

All alone
All alone

(Chorus)
Oxygen
Exhales its short supply
Floating
Toward final goodbye
All alone
Fear hesitates
This is life’s
Final escape

Double Devil Dose

Isolated from the mob
She wakes with haunted screams
Her mystery hand does rob
So often of her dreams

She’s got the slightest touch
So subtle yet obscene
When first she bathes and such
With scented tangerines

(chorus)
Floating
She’s floating
The clouds are rushing by
Drifting
She’s drifting
It doesn’t matter why
Painless
She’s painless
Becoming barely a ghost
Clueless
She’s clueless
Her double devil dose

Her thunderous haunting guilt
Runs naked through the night
And vacuums up its pain
Without the slightest light

She's ready now to fade
and silence haunting screams
Into a milky haze
Of far less daunting dreams

(chorus)
Floating
She’s floating
The clouds are rushing by
Drifting
She’s drifting
It doesn’t matter why
Painless
She’s painless
Becoming barely a ghost
Clueless
She’s clueless
Her double devil dose

Bridge
She straps the leather belt and yanks it round her arm
She thinks she went to heaven when the poison finds its charm
All her childhood horrors are evicted from her mind
And she finally finds some peace from the nightmare of her time

(chorus)
Floating
She’s floating
The clouds are rushing by
Drifting
She’s drifting
It doesn’t matter why
Painless
She’s painless
Becoming barely a ghost
Clueless
She’s clueless
Her double devil dose

Extricating Lies

Trigger to the press
Makes it go boom
Give it a rest
Make it end soon
My own witness
Cycles kicked in
Least now I know
How not to sin
Chorus
Dedication persperation education blues
Abdication mitigation suffocating news
Arrestication fornication judges steaming eyes
Incantation all damnation extracating lies
Mums the word
Sis is all gone
Love deferred
To this broken bond
Upside down
Turned around
Crooked path
End at last
Oh it's the end at last
Repeat chorus
Repeat chorus
Bridge
Surgically removed
I'm no longer screwed
Dancing on my grave
Whole new road to pave
Repeat chorus
Repeat chorus
Repeat chorus

Unholy Kiss (feat. Jennifer C. Johnson)

In bed beside a man I hate
I reconcile my shameful fate
It’s for my son this deed I do
And so this text I send to you

My one true love you’ll always be
The center of my galaxy
My evil act results in gain
But cannot soothe this crushing pain

Chorus
A devil’s deal, I’ve made this pact
I’m in too deep, I can’t turn back
I sacrifice eternal bliss
Sealed with this unholy kiss

My dear sweet lord must I be damned
Now that you see just who I am?
My one true love I have defiled
For funds to save my dying child

Chorus
A devil’s deal, I’ve made this pact
I’m in too deep, I can’t turn back
I sacrifice eternal bliss
Sealed with this unholy kiss

Bridge
Ex malo bonum from bad comes good
So far beyond whether I should
When mercy has its way with us
We will return we must we must
