God Money I'll do anything for you God Money just tell me what you want me to God Money nail me up against the wall God Money don't want everything he wants it all No you can't take it No no you can't take it (You can't take that away from me) Head like a hole Black as your soul I'd rather die than give you control Head like a hole Black as your soul I'd rather die than give you control Bow down before the one you serve You're going to get what you deserve God Money's not looking for the cure God Money's not concerned about the sick among the pure God Money let's go dancing on the backs of the bruised God Money's not one to choose No you can't take it No no you can't take it No you can't take that away from me Head like a hole Black as your soul I'd rather die than give you control Head like a hole Black as your soul I'd rather die than give you control Bow down before the one you serve You're going to get what you deserve You know who you are

Terrible Lie 04:32
Hey God, why are you doing this to me? Am I not living up to what I'm supposed to be? Why am I seething with this animosity? Hey God, I think you owe me a great big apology Terrible lie Hey God, I really don't know what you mean Seems like salvation comes only in our dreams I feel my hatred grow all the more extreme Hey God, can this world really be as sad as it seems? Terrible lie Don't take it away from me I need someone to hold on to Don't take it away from me I need someone to hold on to Hey God, there's nothing left for me to hide I lost my ignorance, security and pride I'm all alone in a world you must despise Hey God, I believed the promises, the promises and lies Terrible lie You made me throw it all away My morals left to decay How many you betray You've taken everything Terrible lie My head is filled with disease My skin is begging you please I'm on my hands and knees I want so much to believe I need someone to hold on to I need someone to hold on to I need someone to hold on to I need someone to hold on to I give you everything My sweet everything Hey God, I really don't know who I am In this world of piss.

Down In It 04:02
Kinda like a cloud I was up way up in the sky and I was feeling some feelings you wouldn't believe Sometimes I can't believe them myself and I decided I was never coming down Just then a tiny little dot caught my eye it was just about too small to see But I watched it way too long and that dot was pulling me down I was up above it Now I'm down in it Well shut up so what what does it matter now I was swimming in the haze now I crawl on the ground And everything I never liked about you is kind of seeping into me Try to laugh about it now but isn't it funny how everything works out ("I guess the joke's on me," she said) I was up above it Now I'm down in it I used to be so big and strong I used to know my right from wrong I used to never be afraid I used to be somebody I used to have something inside Now just this hole that's open wide I used to want it all I used to be somebody I'll cross my heart and hope to die but the needle's already in my eye And all the world's weight is on my back and I don't even know why And what I used to think was me is just a fading memory I looked him right in the eye and said "goodbye" I was up above it Now I'm down in it

Sanctified 05:34
It's still getting worse after everything I've tried What if I found a way to wash it all aside What if she touches with those fingertips As the words spill out like fire from her lips If she says come inside I'll come inside for her If she says give it all I'll give everything to her I am justified I am purified I am sanctified Inside you Heaven's just a rumor she'll dispel As she walks me through the nicest parts of Hell I still dream of lips I never should have kissed Well she knows exactly what I can't resist If she says come inside I'll come inside for her If she says give it all I'll give everything to her I am justified I am purified I am sanctified Inside you I'm just caught up in another of her spells She's turning me into someone else Every day I hope and pray that this will end But when I can I do it all again If she says come inside I'll come inside for her If she says give it all I'll give everything to her I am justified I am purified I am sanctified Inside you As surely as the blade's course is run Maybe my kingdom's finally come

I still recall the taste of your tears Echoing your voice just like the ringing in my ears My favorite dreams of you still wash ashore Scraping through my head till I don't want to sleep anymore Come on tell me Make this all go away You make this all go away I'm down to just one thing and I'm starting to scare myself Make this all go away You make this all go away I just want something I just want something I can never have You always were the one to show me how Back then I couldn't do the things that I can do now This thing is slowly taking me apart Grey would be the color if I had a heart I just want something I can never have In this place it seems like such a shame Though it all looks different now, I know it's still the same Everywhere I look you're all I see Just a fading fucking reminder of who I used to be Come on tell me Make this all go away You make this all go away I'm down to just one thing and I'm starting to scare myself Make this all go away You make this all go away I just want something I just want something I can never have I just want something I can never have Think I know what you meant That night on my bed Still picking at this scab I wish you were dead Your sweat and Perry Ellis Just stains on my sheets
6.
I can't shake this feeling from my head There's a devil sleeping in my bed He's watching you from across the way I cannot make this feeling go away I know it's not the right thing And I know it's not the good thing But kinda I want to I'm not sure of what I should do When everything I'm thinking of is you All of my excuses turn to lies Maybe God will cover up His eyes I know it's not the right thing And I know it's not the good thing But kinda I want to Kinda I want to Maybe just for tonight We can pretend it's all right What's the price I pay? I don't care what they say I want to I want to (I'll take my chance tonight)

Sin 03:31
You give me the reason You give me control I gave you my Purity My Purity you stole Did you think I wouldn't recognize this compromise? Am I just too stupid to realize? Stale incense, old sweat and lies, lies, lies It comes down to this Your kiss Your fist And your strain It gets under my skin Within Take in The extent of my sin You give me the anger You give me the nerve Carry out my sentence I get what I deserve I'm just an effigy to be defaced To be disgraced Your need for me has been replaced And if I can't have everything well then just give me a taste It comes down to this Your kiss Your fist And your strain It gets under my skin Within Take in The extent of my sin
8.
Just when everything was making sense You took away all my self-confidence Now all that I've been hearing must be true I guess I'm not the only boy for you That's what I get How could you turn us into this After you just taught me how to kiss you? I told you I'd never say goodbye Now I'm slipping on the tears you made me cry That's what I get Why does it come as a surprise? To think that I was so naïve Maybe didn't mean so much But it meant everything to me
9.
I'm drunk And right now I'm so in love with you And I don't want to think too much about what we should or shouldn't do Lay my hands on Heaven and the sun and the moon and the stars While the Devil wants to fuck me in the back of his car Nothing quite like the feel of something new Maybe I'm all messed up Maybe I'm all messed up in you But this is the only time I really feel alive This is the only time I really feel alive I swear I just found everything I need The sweat in your eyes the blood in your veins are listening to me Well I want to drink it up and swim in it until I drown My moral standing is lying down Nothing quite like the feel of something new Maybe I'm all messed up Maybe I'm all messed up in you But this is the only time I really feel alive This is the only time I really feel alive I can't help thinking Christ never had it like this

Ringfinger 04:54
Well you've got me working so hard lately Working my hands until they bleed If I was twice the man I could be I'd still be half of what you need Still you lead me and I follow Anything you ask you know I'll do But this one act of consecration is what I ask of you Ringfinger Promise carved in stone Deeper than the sea Ringfinger Sever flesh and bone And offer it to me You just leave me nailed here Hanging like Jesus on this cross I'm just dying for your sins And aiding to the cause Ringfinger Promise carved in stone Deeper than the sea Ringfinger Sever flesh and bone And offer it to me Wrap my eyes in bandages Confessions I see through I get everything I want When I get part of you Ringfinger Promise carved in stone Deeper than the sea Ringfinger Sever flesh and bone And offer it to me Ringfinger Promise carved in stone Deeper than the sea Ringfinger Devil's flesh and bone Do something for me I'm so tired I can't get to sleep And the squeaking of the bed is right in time with the song that's repeating in my head I just want you to know "When I do it, I only think of you"
