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: All Things Hurt
Another dawn
Of deadly sun
Dress to impress
Into infected flesh

Words are swords in my brain
All things hurt that you say

Staring at a wall
It stares back at me
Out in the hall
Stands that troubled reverie

Words are swords in my brain
All things hurt that you say
Track Name: Cry Like Birds
Funereal bells toll in thickening silence
Only statues listen to warfare sirens

It's a sickening curse
Altars cry like birds
For a hungering hearse
Altars cry like birds
Like birds
Have you ever heard?
Altars crying like birds

Tormenting thirst, halo of shrieking birds
Pecking off features, pecking flesh in turns

CHORUS

Sing to your sisters, your brothers are dead...
Sing to your sisters, your brothers are dead...

Shh, won't you listen! As bells toll once again
Kingpins are eaten, silence left us insane
Track Name: Murderama
Macabre tape is spinning ’round
Marking your place underground
Neighbors say; don’t be so loud
While you beat their lives out

Partners in crime earned a dime
Sang their vicious nursery rhyme
String quartet, baby turns blue
This murder is custom cut for you

Macabre tape is spinning ’round
Marking your place underground
String quartet, baby turns blue
This murder is custom cut for you

Spinning, spinning ’round and ’round
Singing, singing nursery rhymes
