Track Name: Welcome To The Womb
Welcome to the womb
The conception of your doom
I apologize if things aren’t what they seem
Let me show you to your room
I think it’s safe to assume
Your stay with us will be nothing short of a dream
So kick off your tired shoes
You’ve everything to lose
Your life, your love, your friends and family

Beginning at the end
Already there inside
You know I tried
Already at the end
And yet we start again
We keep on moving
Backward, over, under
In slow motion
But we keep on moving
We wont forget

Welcome to the womb
Smell the garden in full bloom
We have everything you’ll ever need to survive
Sweet waves of soft perfume
Colorful balloons
You’ll never see the other side alive

Beginning at the end
Already there inside
You know I tried
Already at the end
And yet we start again
We keep on moving
Backward, over, under
In slow motion
But we keep on moving
We wont forget

Welcome to the womb

Welcome to the womb
We’ll be ready for you soon
Please have a seat. There’s no need to stand in line
We have so much more to do
We’re so glad to finally meet you
Now come with us and say goodbye

It’s time
Track Name: Dirtbag
The mission was written on a napkin in the kitchen
As I sat with my head in my hands
It was dark. I was drunk and the drink I was drinking
Gave me courage. I felt just like a man
I stepped outside for a smoke and I tried
To shake this awful feeling from my gut
I knew that someone would die that night
But I could not have known who or for what

So now I’m looking out on the water
And I’m hit with a wave of fear
When I see myself looking back rom across the river
I went inside and I got my gun
I could feel myself become undone
Before the light of day I would be dead
And I would be a killer

I am the worm on the hook
I am the oldest trick in the book
I am the whisper in your ear
I tell you what you need to hear

Earlier this morning before the sun was burning
I finally walked my way back home to bed
I keep thinking about my body on the outskirts of the city
Facedown in a pool of blood shot full of lead

And now the papers have their story
And on the TV screen before me
Is a news reporter standing at the scene
Quite squeamishly he speculates
As to how the stranger met his fate
And I pour myself a drink
To wash my conscience clean

I am the worm on the hook
I am the oldest trick in the book
I am the whisper in your ear
I tell you what you need to hear

I keep telling myself that I’m not this fragile body
And I say to myself that I’m not really dead
If I sleep it off, everything will be ok
I promise myself that I’m not really dead

They’ll never know why I did it
They’ll never know it was me
I’m as quiet as a clam at the bottom of the ocean
Everything comes to an ending
But I never thought it would be
The culmination of disrupted emotion

With justified indignation
I’ve severed all relation
I wash the blood away from the righteous hands
I cut my hair and shave my face
In admiration of the human race
Everything looks so nice with my head buried in the sand

I am the worm on the hook
I am the oldest trick in the book
I am the whisper in your ear
I tell you what you need to hear
Track Name: Say TAN!!!
Well it’s hot as Hell today and baby so are you
When my skin starts getting pale I know what to do

I can see your bellybutton

That poke-a-dot bikini hits me right between the eyes
Let me rub some lotion on the inside of your thighs
Here comes the radiation burning up the sand
Say the magic word. Baby, just say TAN

Everybody thinks they want what I’ve got
Everybody wants a piece of my pie
Everybody looking through my keyhole
Everybody wants a sacrifice

I can see your belly button

That poke-a-dot bikini hits me right between the eyes
Let me rub some lotion on the inside of your thighs
Here comes the radiation burning up the sand
Say the magic word. Baby, just say TAN

I hope you burn baby burn
Burn in hell for all eternity, my love
Let me hear you scream
Beg for mercy as I torture you, my love
All of these kisses all wasted on your lips
All gone for ever you dirty little bitxh

The king of diamonds told me Satan loves
He’ll tell you all my secrets for free

So kneel before the Prince of Darkness

That poke-a-dot bikini hits me right between the eyes
Let me rub some lotion on the inside of your thighs
Here comes the radiation burning up the sand
Say the magic word. Baby, just say TAN
Track Name: Gravity
Lately it feels like I keep falling down
There’s too much weight to pick myself back up off the ground
Broken jawbone
Sorry I don’t think I can talk to you today
Anyway

I feel good
I feel great
I think I’ve had just about
All I can take

Drilling pavement with these fingertips
Gravity keeps kissing me with his dirty lips
Black smoke against a black sky
Tonight
Your life just passed you by

I feel good
I feel great
I think I’ve had just about
All I can take

Staring back at my reflection
I’m face to face to cheek to cheek to cheek with a fuxking dead man
Pull my spine out
Replace it with dollar bills
When I hear my bones break
They make a sound like thunder
Track Name: Dancelepsy
And when you look out you look away
The sight of you gets harder every time

And when you reach out I sneak away
I wonder if you’ve overcome this end of mine

-Chet Snow
Track Name: Dimensional Disease
When you spit in my face,
I’m gonna cook you a nice dinner
And respectfully romance you
All evening.
Track Name: Rio Rojo
Pounded in the ground is a hitching post
Where across the wood there’s scratched a note
It reads “Whoever dare enter shall abandon all hope”
You take another step in el Rio Rojo
Your life is lost if you try to cross
Tu corazon will explode

My head is on fire with love and desire for just one more lifetime
But now because of these dirty hands
These dirty dirty hands
You’re gone forever
So now I say to myself “all I need is one bullet in my gun
And I’ll go
To el Rio Rojo”
It’s running red tonight

Where you’re gonna go there is no moon
The sun burns your bones every morning, night, and noon
And the Devil, he sits and points his finger at you and says
“You’re dead. You’re gonna drown in the River Red.”

So give to me all of your money and give to me your strongest horse
And give to me all of your whiskey to soften my remorse
I keep hearing you calling me back to el Rio Rojo
And I stand alone
It’s running red tonight
With the blood of an innocent life
Track Name: Candy
Just like the moon on the darkest night still turns the tide
I wont give up without a fight or break down and cry
Say you’ll be mine and drink this wine
Maybe if you say you’ll stay with me, everything will turn out fine

For too long you took me for a coward with my tail between my legs
But I have seen a beautiful flower sleeping in her garden bed
It took so long but now I’m strong
Everybody knows the little white rose that smells so fine is mine

These candy coated kisses
Keep telling me that this is
Something special sent from above
My raven-haired beauty
Softly whispers to me
“This is how it feels to be in love”
