Track Name: Play Dead
When you feel the threat
Play dead, play dead, play dead…
Don’t run your head ahead
Play dead, play dead, play dead…

They’re out for our scalps
They’re out for our blood…
Track Name: Blood is the New Black
Blood blood blood is the new black
It’s what this industry lacks
Flesh flesh flesh has no price
Until it’s billboard size

Blood is the new black

Blood blood blood is the new black
It’s what this industry lacks
Flesh flesh flesh has no price
We use it as disguise

And decorations grin:
Being stunning is no sin
Another shape of suffering
Track Name: I Will Stalk You
The body’s pressed against a wall
Completely still, not moving at all
Trembling hands are dripping sweat
Tiptoeing as close as I can get

Sometimes I wonder does he know
That I’ve been following him like a shadow
I’ll be watching wherever you go
Adrenaline rush in my bloodflow

I will stalk you

Holding my breath so you wouldn’t hear
My current target has a sensitive ear

I’ll cross all borders and courtorders
I’ll cry like a dingo under your window

I will stalk you

And when I’m gone I know you’ll miss me
And when I’m gone I think you’ll miss me
Track Name: Drawn and Quartered
Do you recognize your family
Hanging on the hooks
Decorating cookbooks
It’s delicious so don’t demonize me

There’s no reason for dismay
They were quite stupid anyway
And otherwise we would all starve
Life’s not so bad in the factory farm

See them become drawn and quartered

Soon you’ll follow your family
Hanging on the hooks
Decorating cookbooks
Don’t worry, it’s quick and cruelty-free

Your turn to be drawn and quartered

You’re the ideal meat for us to eat
You’re the perfect breed to satisfy our greed

Your turn to be drawn and quartered
We’re just hungry, not cold-hearted
Drawn and quartered…
Track Name: Panic Paranoia
Panic paranoia
Some kind of psychosis
Panic paranoia
In delirious doses

I flirt with insanity
It twists and turns inside me

Disappear, disappear
Out of my troubled mind
Disappear, I wish
You vanished and died

Panic paranoia
Nightmares at noon
Panic paranoia
Suffocation is soon

I flirt with insanity
It’s harassing my harmony

CHORUS

…out of my troubled mind
Track Name: Madhouse
When night comes I see him
He walks around our muppet wing
He has a fistful of puppet strings
But he never says a thing

In the madhouse

She’s always talking jibberish
And that makes me so feverish
Skull is full of murder
Convulsions and savage fervor

CHORUS

I heard her again, she was raving
And we trembled in our beds
With fireworks in our heads

When night comes I see him
He walks around our loony bin
He has a fistful of puppet strings
That we crave more than anything
Track Name: Too Depressed to Dance
All painted gray, hear me say
This is not my cabaret

Too depressed
Unimpressed
I’m a strange bird
More or less

Too depressed to dance
Too sober for a romance

All people here, they dance so weird
Like wind-up toys, and I want to destroy

Too depressed
Too obsessed
I’m a strange bird
More or less
