I awoke in the wreckage of a car crash, With my head upon the wheel. You were there, With glass petals in your hair, And crimson ruby tear drops. There was nothing I could do, You were cold, you were ice, you were dead, Your lips were, fucking, blue! So I scream, with broken ribs; I'll make like Orpheus, To retrieve you from Hell. Hades, Won't you give me back my wife? I say, Hades, Won't you give me back my wife? I say, Hades, I'm coming for my wife! Hades, Won't you give me back my wife? I did all you asked for, and more. These shackles were broken long ago. Your god is just a, fucking, arsehole. I ain't your, fucking pawn no more. Hades, Won't you give me back my wife? I say, Hades, Won't you give me back my wife? I say, Hades, I'm coming for my wife! Hades, Won't you give me back my wife?

I went down to the rivers edge to bribe some mermaids to take me to the other side, But they said only the dead may pass, and I must try the ferry man. But his charge is more than what I can afford, I'm so poor, I got holes in my socks. My socks are holy, my socks are holy, my socks are holier than god. So I wander down the way and I try to swim across. But the harpies drag me down, t he harpies drag me down, the harpies drag me, drown. The waves came crashing, I saw the mermaid weeping, I heard the bitches bleeding. The harpies drag me down, I drowned the mermaids. (Can't stop me!) When I finally got to the other side, The slate rocks cut my hands, I look more like Christ than I ever did, With dark hair and bleeding palms. As I emerged out the forest, I saw the souls of the damned, I am in the land of the dead. (Can't stop me!) No no n-no n-n-no n-no, N-no no, ha ha n-n-no n-no, No no n-no no n-no no, Ha ha, wah wah, ha ha! No no no no n-no no, Whinge whinge, fucking, baby cry! No fucker, n-no n-no fucker can! No fucker, n-no n-no fucker can! No fucker, n-no n-no fucker can! No fucker, no fucker can stop me!

They took our hearts from us, They took all we knew was good, They made us like machines, They made us believe, But we are not metal men! And we feel something, And we feel everything. I see you smile, I see your lies, I see your frown, I see your guise, I see your hate, I see your rage, I see your anger, I see your cage, I see your love, I see your lust, I see your passion, I see your just, I see your hope, I see your fear, I see your hunger, I see your tear! And we feel something, And we feel everything.

I'm raising an army of the damned, I will break their shackles and their bonds, I'm raising an army of the tired, of the tortured, of the scared, And we will march on Heaven's stair. So set your Angels on me, I'll make them bleed, So set your Demons on me, I'll make them scream, So set your Angels on me, I'll make them choke, So set your Demons on me, I'll kill them good! I don't know what time it is, I've not seen a clock in years, The almanac just says: SACRAFICE! E'erybody's lynched from trees, From sea to sea, “Appease me!” says your maker, “Appease me!” says your queen. So I cut the nooses down, They all bow at my feet, They dress me like a King, As we march on the gate. I'm raising an army of the damned, I've raised an army of the scared, I've raised an army of the tired, I've raised an army of those who care, So set your Angels on me, I'll make them bleed, So set your Angels on me, I'll make them scream, So set your Demons on me,, I'll make them choke, So set your Demons on me, I'll kill them good!

Hey, magic woman, Where have you been? Caught in landslide, I know what you mean. Their ugly faces, On the rotten ground, Crawling like insects, Never to be found. (She could rule the world, She could have it all, She could be like me, She could be my queen.) Hey, magic woman, Where have you been? Trapped in a landslide, I know what you mean. They're all judgemental, Nit-picking her flaws, She is above them, Never shall she fall. I see her smile, In the darkest days, A glimmer of hope eternal, Forever a queen. She could rule the world, She could have it all, She could be like me, She could be my queen, She could rule the world, She could rule my heart, She could be my queen, She could be my god.

Come on down with Jack and Jill, Don't tell your mother where you'll be, “Bury your head in my leg!” she says, Oh, it gets fucking wild on a Thursday, Here we see the Cardinal, Oh, man, he likes to play, Maybe God and Jezz have blessed him, To let his sexuality sway? Here we fall in love with pretty girls, Like Miss Daisy and Miss Rose, But none compare with the Poppy girl, Who takes us out of this, fucking, world. Now the smoke is getting to my head, It makes the, fucking, world whirl, And nothing makes sense any more, And nothing seems. And I don't think I'm real, And your vagrant stare is there, And the dragon comes chasing us, Down the hall and through the stairs, And I don't think I'll survive, And I don't think I'll survive, And I don't think I'll survive, And I don't think. (Then why do we come here?) When you're not home. (Then why do we come here?) And I'm so broken. (Then why do we come here?) I'm, fucking, torn, (Then why do we come here?) I'm all alone, (Then why do we come here?) And I'm so high.. (Then why do we cum?)

I am trapped, In the lake of fire, I traded my soul, babe, I traded it for yours. I killed your god, his angels, and his crew. I killed the devil-man, just to release you. And I'm trapped in this fucking lake of fire, And I'm stuck frozen in this pyre, Free me babe, it is my desire. Save me, I'm falling down, Save me, I'm falling down. So save me, babe, I'm falling down, and I'm slipping. And I'm so lost in the deepest parts of hell, And it's painful, It's so painful. Save me, babe, I'm falling down, And it's painful, It's so painful, And I'm so lost in the deepest parts of hell And its painful It's so painful There's a lake ice, With a beast crawling up, And I'm frightened, Oh, so, fucking, scared. There's a lake of ice, My reflection staring back at me, I am the devil. I slayed your gods, While you were hiding in the trees. I slayed your gods , And your gods slayed, I am the devil, For eternity. And I'm trapped here, In the dark void Save me, I'm falling down, Save me, I'm falling down. So save me, babe, I've fallen down, It's so hard to breathe, And I'm so lost in the deepest parts of Hell, And it's painful, It's so painful. Save me, babe, I've fallen down, And it's painful, It's so painful. And I'm so lost in the deepest parts of Hell, And it's painful, It's so painful. So save me, I'm running air, And I'm slipping, Right into the void, So save me, I'm running out of air, It's so hard to breathe, It's so hard to be, And I'm lost here, In the seventh circle, Where the devil likes to play, And the devil likes to play his little games, And I'm so lost in the deepest parts of hell, And it's painful, It's so painful
