Track Name: Snaggletooth
if there's no light
if there's no light
to this
dead end road
be sure to take it slow
be sure to make it cold
some gods keep
you know - some gods keep
such broken company
broken men
with their golden teeth
in a palace of dead belief
you have, your daddy’s wicked soul
steady hands just like your mother
say a prayer for your mother
give her a kiss - before you go
if there’s no light
if there’s no light
to this - dead end road
be sure to take it slow
be sure to make it cold
you have, your daddy’s wicked soul
steady hands just like your mothers
save a bullet for your mother
give her a kiss - before you blow
(happy hunting to you, baby)
give her a kiss before you blow
(happy hunting to you, baby)
give her a kiss
happy hunting to you, baby
happy hunting to you, baby
Track Name: Glamour Dogs
dogs they howl
could wake the dead
they are
empty and
restless
waiting to be fed
see they got a taste
for what we’ve done
now our silver tongues
won’t serve us much
our silver tongues won’t serve us much
let them in!
I’m tired of these cold
rattling bones
let them in!
screaming “flesh for flesh!”
they’ll never let go.
they’ll never let go.
soon they’ll come
spitting blood
our silver tongues won’t serve us much
no our silver tongues don’t serve us much
let them in!
I’m tired of these cold
rattling bones
let them in!
screaming “flesh for flesh!”
they’ll never let go.
(never let go, oh oh)
Track Name: Deep
you made these walls
oh feel like, love
towering highs
get me low, oh oh
i’m so melancholy, baby
(melancholy baby)
heaven has no space for me
i’m so melancholy, baby
(melancholy baby)
like heaven ain’t no place for me
no place for me
(no place for me)
you’re the cruel kind of dream
let me sink to the bottom of your sorrow deep
you put the clouds in my sky
now there’s rain pouring down, from
these heart shaped eyes
(heart shaped eyes)
i’m jaded like you
baby
(baby)
i’m so jaded like you
baby
(baby)
you’re the cruel kind of dream
let me sink to the bottom of
your sorrow deep.
deep deep
baby
oh so deep, deep.
baby
you’re the cruel kind of dream
let me sink to, the bottom of
your sorrow deep.
Track Name: Colossus
in the city of the sun
children go to, burn baby burn
we'll be, jet black
and watch it burn
together
drive into the night
the neon gets us high
we were born to die, you and i
let's fuck the world
together
oh, together
we’ll let it burn,
don’t want to live, forever
oh, forever
drive into the night
the neon and gets us high
we were born to die, you and I
let's fuck this world
together
oh, together
let it burn
don't want to live forever
forever- oh oh oh oh oh’
forever, oh oh oh oh oh
forever- oh oh oh oh oh’
forever, oh oh oh oh oh
just drive into the night
the neon and gets us high
if we were born to die, you and i
let fuck the world
together
oh, together
let it burn
don't want to live, forever oh
oh - forever
forever
let it burn
don't want to live, forever, forever
(forever, oh oh oh oh oh)
let it burn,
(forever, oh oh oh oh oh )
don’t want to live
forever
Track Name: Slow Dive
music plays
she’s calling you by name
dancing slow
make you, come a million ways
dream of a universe
between her thighs
sailing crystal ships
leave you, starry-eyed
she’ll make you whole, mm
oh, heal you body and soul
her hole oh-oh
hole
never breathe again
dive into
her deep blue velvet bed
sail those crystal ships
to another world
let it drift away
dive into her
she’ll make you whole
ooh heal you, body and soul
her hole oh-oh
her hole
oh, heal you body and soul
hole oh-oh oh
never breathe again
dive into her deep blue velvet bed

Track Name: Pornokrates
golden, candy cigarettes
doe-eyed girls, forever young and blessed
diamonds, help you to forget,
diamonds, ringing in your head
bright lights
bright lights, the stars in your eyes, spin
dance for me, crystal queen
we live and we die in a dream
all you want, all you need
all you want, all you need
blood-red, snakes around your neck
demi-gods, sex and violence
diamonds, help you to forget
diamonds, ringing in your head
bright lights
bright lights, the stars in your eyes, spin
dance for me, crystal queen
we live and we die in a dream
all you want, all you need
all you want, all you need
all you want, all you need
(bright lights, the stars in your eyes, spin)
all you want
all you need
(we live and we die in the dream)
all you want
all you need
(bright lights, the stars in your eyes, spin)
all you want
all you need
(we live and we die in the dream)

Track Name: The Archer
once we were young, now going insane
always fighting biting back, tearing down, down, down
take aim
take aim
it was you who said, only the strong survive
i’d learn to love the thrill, of hunting down, down, down
take aim
shoot them down
we take aim
put them in the ground, ground
shoot to kill
we shoot to kill, kill, to kill
we shoot to kill, kill, to kill
we shoot to kill, kill, to kill
take aim
shoot em down
take aim
put her in the ground
in the ground
shoot to kill
to kill , to kill , to kill
we shoot to kill , to kill , to kill
we shoot to kill , to kill , to kill
anything, to survive, anything, to survive, anything to survive
