Relax baby cuz you're going down Relax baby cuz you're going down Don't make that face as it falls flat against the ground Calm down sugar don't act so surprised Calm down sugar don't act so surprised When you're living in shit you know that will draw the flies (Yes it will) Pride comes before the fall You suck it down - you want it all Your heads a top - it pops right off Take your fill while walking tall Chorus: Strip off your skin We can begin Stop wearing that suit Cuz you're hiding the truth Don't sleep honey cuz they're after you Don't sleep honey cuz they're after you Just because you can't see them doesn't make it less true Hush now darling don't make so much noise Hush now darling don't make so much noise When you're acting like an object they will treat you like a toy (Like you are) CHORUS Pride comes before the fall You suck it down - you want it all Your heads a top - it pops right off Take your fill while walking tall CHORUS

Whittle whittle worn away Scratch and scrape - break and fray Muddled down a shake is made From the ash of another day With a pinch of discontent Sprinkle in free range contempt 2 cups of sin - mixed in repent A tablespoon of what was meant Garnish plate with good intention Pick the plant of growing tension Don't forget the apprehension Probably not worth a mention Simmer slowly is the trick Served along with pins and pricks Finger foods for the dead and sick Sweet meats tender tasty licks A meal fit for modern kings Like flightless birds with broken wings Useless lumps of shapeless things A throat that's cut no song to sing Animals of present past In a future not meant to last Still not full and eating vast Going strong but fading fast Chorus: A recipe for the modern age The time has come to set the stage So glad it's over turn the page Subdue your hate and calm your rage No more times for wants or needs Consuming more than a disease But what you get is what you see So come on now and follow my lead The menu's written long ago Much further back than you know Don't hesitate when it's time to go It's coming fast so don't move slow The concept leaves you wanting more Seconds please then out the door Leave the money on the floor Back to the streets just like a whore Come get what you need CHORUS When it's over turn and smile you're free now from that denial

Mr. Keepsake 05:42
I prayed for you and there you are Now that you're here - you won't go far And if you go - you will run and tell We can't have that - he won't do well I stop and hear the floorboards creak They tell me now that you ca't speak I hear you there below the grain Beneath the space removed from pain There is a wooden box Where Mr. Keepsake talks He says to me "No need to hurry take it slow" He says to me "Keep it all they're never know" He says to me "Now pick up the parts it's time to go" He says to me "Listen to me I"ll set you free" You gave your heart to someone else I put it right there on the shelf Decaying with your wanting eyes And ruby lips once spewing lies You thought you had the best of me But mister mister helped me see The best kept secrets are the ones Involving tape, blindfolds, and guns There is a wooden box Where Mr. Keepsake stalks He says to me "They don't understand you like I do" He says to me "They'll use you up when they are through" He says to me "There's nothing left out there for you" He says to me "Listen to me I"ll set you free" And when they came to take me Away from you - away from he To send me to the scaffold high I knew at once I had to die They looked they looked into the box But mister mister can't be caught And here and hereI feel the knot All alone again to hear him talk He says to me

Zero Hour 04:35
Stand down - stand up March now - corrupt Left foot - right next Black soot - collects Front lines - fallout Dark times - no doubt Fox holes - lie still Our goals - let's kill Chorus: Zero hour Countdown You kiss the bullet as you fall right to the ground It isn't over til the white flash burns your skin When you bend over will you tell me when it's in Cold sweat - hot lead No threat - he's dead No fear - full force We're here - of course Loose lips - reap lies Insects - deny Our sects - my god Infect - death squads Chorus (ext) Zero hour Countdown You kiss the bullet as you fall right to the ground It isn't over til the white flash burns your skin When you bend over will you tell me when it's in Zero Hour Begins The only meaning is the measure of your sins This war ain't over til the victims taste the lead So watch your back when they come for you instead Yes they're coming for you Stand down - stand up March now - corrupt Now where to go We're here - you know Chorus (ext)

Baby sweet baby there is no time to cry Faster dig faster so many need to die Unspeakable you said to me My brother don't you lie The voices told me you were there Can you please tell me why What did they do to you Or tell me what'd they say You had to purge them of their flesh And make them go away You can fertilize this land With their supple bones Carve a path with the mass Forgottens and slones Sullen pictures hung like leaves Black and white black and blue From the broken wooden trees Are the faces we hardly knew Baby sweet baby there is no time to cry Faster dig faster so many need to die Opposition wears me thin I know I know I must Cleanse the gene pool of the filth With vigor and disgust The weak are thus cuz they will fall That's all they know they heed the call And pave the way for my success I'll beat them down til they confess

about

And this is where it all began. Before the madness and mayhem of the stage. One lone butcher sat in his corner making rudimentary noise and nonsense. It isn't pretty but it is the beginning...
