Track Name: 642
Demons came to me
In my sleep
They bite my throat
They drink my blood.
Venom seeps
Through their teeth
Invading me with devil's blood
You said this wouldn't hurt
These scars across my chest
Memories I won't forget
To make believe
You don't exist
Here they come
Greater numbers
Carry the iron
brand my skin
Six Four Two
Across my chest
These scars won’t leave
They won’t forget
You said this wouldn't hurt
Track Name: Satin Glove
Against the darkened door
Clean feet on a dirty floor
She saunters in with silken swoosh
A leech on pale flesh
Dead leaves on a wedding dress
Put on your coat and rubber boots
She cries for you
Where have you gone?
She cries for you
What have you done?
Head to the covered bridge
Stretched over icy water
A dirty mirror under
An ink black sky
Look down past your reflection
Among the vegetation
Is that the moon?
Are those her eyes?
Reach down from the shore
Find the one you love
Pull her from the mud
Her skin slips off like a satin glove
Track Name: Anchors On The Ocean Floor
I’ve tried to see through the years
My prints fade from the glass
I try to find myself
I just see someone else
I held it in my hands
I feel it in my chest
I dropped it in the ashes
I can’t let it rest
I hold it in my heart
I lost it in my head
I try to feed the fire
I just fuel the dread
I’ve dragged my friends this distance
Where did they put my crown?
Or are we all just anchors
Cut loose on the ocean floor?
Track Name: The Killer Leads The Funeral
My children
Are holding hands
Drown in circles
Around the grave
Slowly the crowd
Begins to form
For my children believe
Believe your father
The rain that falls
Will never dry from your face
And your hands
Will become your eyes
This scar surrounds
The center of my life
I can see it in her bloodshot eyes
She can’t remember
What it’s like
To live alone,
She’s so alone
Father Show Me
You’re alive
Father please say you’re alive
Track Name: The Devil's Work Is Never Done
Let's take this life and walk
Six Hours out of our way
In the wrong direction
And baby, we’ll kill ourselves
For happiness
Six hundred forty-two
Six hundred forty-two hours
Enough time to make us bleed
We bleed for me
Let's do it for the blood
Let's tear this bond apart
I’ll gouge out my own eyes
And baby, I’ll never see you
See you again
But we were only 15
But we were only 16
But we were only 17
And then we were 18
Eighteen’s not old enough to die
