It’s the funeral you’ve been asking for. The casket is open, the body’s still warm But when the voices in your head Crawl back from the dead, Then it’s ashes to ashes, and there’s blood on your hands. Did it turn out the way you planned? Sometimes we’re dealt desperate expectations but I never wanted an end like this. So let’s go out on a limb, A resurrection hymn, A fate that once looked grim Is now your chance to be saved, Collect the bones from your grave, assign yourself a new name, Rip wide the stitches that you once placed through your lips. let’s hear what you have to say. Is it everything you wanted and more? Did you get what you were asking for? I never wanted an end like this. I won’t say a word until you stop breathing. You got what you deserved, I got what I needed in the end. Is it everything you wanted and more? You left me dying on your bedroom floor. I never wanted an end like this.

Curse Me Out 02:27
Cursed! And it hurts in the worst kinds of ways. In the back of a hearse, and the person who put you there is driving. In a room full of corpses with worms in their brains, And you got this thirst and it only gets worse when you’re by me. Oh, how you love to drink my blood. (So) Curse me out. you give me nightmares nightly, think i might be fucked up now. So put me out of my misery before you curse me out. With the procession still fresh in your mind, Do you get the impression that you might have wasted your whole life? So pull down the curtains and darken your eyes. Does it strike a nerve when you think of the person that you used to be? Swear to me you’re okay, but it kills you just the same! (I’ll Swear that you’ll never hear from me again) Oh no…You always pick me up when you wanna go and put me down, And you sink your teeth in ‘til I can’t breathe anymore. It’s so hard to watch you take a wooden stake and drive it right through my heart. Every time I see your face it freaks me out, I’ll kill you just for the hell of it, so please curse me out!
3.
A second thought in a second-rate story. Covered up, covered up so they won’t see. Another line from the choir boy, spare me. Is this thing loaded? (Let’s find out) Another kill for the Highlight Reel please. Another cut, another cut you can’t feel from the barbed wire to the fired up concrete. Take another bullet just for me. Line the stretchers ‘til there’s not enough for us. So can you give me One more kill for the Highlight Reel ‘til I can’t feel anything? Another Kill For Me. Pretty please? And if you’re starting to feel like nothing is real, burn it all and then follow me. You swore you’d pull the trigger, but now it’s “stuck”. We’re so fucked. I don’t wanna feel this Numb forever So don’t let up ‘til I can’t stop trembling. Baby I want to feel something other than this (Just leave me the keys and I’ll leave you a note) It's getting harder to live (With a gun to your head and knife to your throat) Another day I might as well be dead. So spill my blood while you still can. Oh Darling, We were meant for so much more than an end. And I can’t forget. I wanna feel something. Existence gives you nothing When every day is numbing, So Baby, can you give me one more kill?
4.
Take me to my grave. cause I just can’t wait to decay. Yeah it’s a cemetery wedding and I just caught the bouquet. So do you really think I’m dying alone? Well I sure hope so. Bury me tonight! (Voices in your head, wishing you were dead, it never ends) Tell me how you really feel being alive. Well we don’t have much time, so dig it deep now, don’t be shy! As long as I’m buried with you, well that’ll be alright. So come on! Bury me tonight! Cause every day it’s like ‘Oh god make it stop!’ Begging on your knees in a poser parking lot built on top of a murder scene, it’s first degree And no one really cares who gets shot. And I just can’t bear to watch (Just say it like you mean it) I swear my casket better fucking lock! Bury me tonight! Tell me how you really feel being alive. You don’t care, don’t be scared. You sold your soul and now you’re halfway there! As long as I’m buried with you, well that’ll be alright. So come on! Bury me tonight! Can’t stop the blood now that it’s started So please, for once, just kill the pain. Dearly Departed, this will be the last song that you hear before they put you underground. But not now, not now So now we’ll sing it like this: “Da, da. Dadada-da da-da da, da dadadada.” If you don’t like what you see, go ahead, take my hand and make a deathwish with me. Never going to leave, So let’s stay and burn the whole damn world just to stare at the flames. If Death makes you afraid, then let’s go and put a face to the name, and then we’ll put it to shame. I don’t need to be saved, Just take me to my grave Baby, Bury Me! Here! Tonight!

Well my, my, what an awful mess. What does a ghost like you do in a place like this? Just rinse and repeat: “you don’t exist, you don’t exist”. So drop dead as best as you can. How about you be me, and well, I’ll be damned! (In glam) Cause you know that’s just the way I am! So cue the life support (When you build it up and it all burns down) Please, just cut the cord (Would you pick me up, or put me in the ground?) Baby set me free! Don’t say a prayer for me, I’ll be your tragedy. And when I start to bleed You’ll sharpen your teeth! Well the walls did speak, and they know all about all the things that you only seem to believe When you think that someone might be listening (And they don’t forget) If you are the reaper, then I am the living dead. And you can only kill me when I say you can. Don’t say a prayer for me, I’ll be your tragedy. And when I start to bleed, Will you carry me? When they put me to sleep And end me tragically, I’m begging you oh please Why did you have to sharpen your teeth? Listen, I used to keep a hope alive. But I never expected that the hand that would end it would be mine. Well, meet your defeat. Oh just try and forget about all of the times that you said that you “get what you give”. Well, you get what you give ‘til you don’t, don’t, da-da-Darling, if you let me I will make you a man. Die a little slower if you can. I’m not scared. So I better never see you around here. And we know how to make people disappear. This is how The Funeral does fear. So, what does a ghost like you do in a place like this?
6.
Fixing a home with prescription parts. An internalized fear that was taken to heart, Thinking “how did I get here?” As we’re forging through fields full of futile hearts, Not quite broken if they never worked from the start, Tell me, how did I get here? Tell me, why am I here? Well, living’s not so easy When you’re dying to forget. Well I’ll tell you right now, nice and loud. When you’re buried in hell, and there’s nowhere else for you to go now. Bitter ‘til the end, you can wake me when I’m dead. When you know you’re good as gone, I’ll be your dying breath. What you lost in a father you found much worse in a cancer that reeks of American Failure. How did I get here? Now your savior is here but they can’t do much, When a family’s the only thing you ever wanted. How did I get here? Tell me why the hell am I here? Turns out that dying’s not so easy When you’re living with regret. I’ll abandon this shell, It’s a cell, can’t you tell? When you’re buried in hell, and there’s nowhere else for you to go now. Bitter ‘til the end, you can wake me when I’m dead. When you know you’re good as gone, I’ll be your dying breath.

GLITTER 02:42
Anything you want me to do. I’ll do anything for you (to end up dead real soon) Anything you want me to say. I’ll say it if it gets you to stay (the hell away from me) Don’t pretend like you Don’t know what you do. I want to be nowhere near you. Cut me to the bone but don’t pull out the knife, I’ll twist it slow. I wanna see your blood Get stuck like glitter on my face, I’ll wear it every day. Self-inflicted wounds, Do they hurt you? I want to be nowhere (near you).
8.
So do you want to end up somewhere no one knows? There’s a place in the ground where we can go. Dig it out. And you will always be my Holy Ghost. And now I’m starting to fade, So ‘til this rope starts to fray, I’ll just Hang! Hang! Hang on every word that you say! Get me out of this empty body, I don’t want it all. It’s not easy to go when you know that you’ll burn in hell. Goddamn, scare me half to death then Put me in my deathbed again and again. I can’t take another second, I never want to come back ever again. I heard you talking in your sleep. So Baby would you step into a coma with me? So rip away the cord from the phone, And when the scars start to show, She said “Honey take these pills and wash them down with some bleach!” When you say my name, I swear to god it makes my heart concave. And Baby you can trust me when I say, I don’t think I can carry on this way. I’m begging you to cut me out of this empty body, I don’t want it all. Put me in the ground like it’s the only place that we can go for now. I never want to come out again, just stay with me a little bit longer now.

A.M. Gothic 02:23
And it’s calling out my name, And it’s crawling through my veins, And it’s calling out the names Of the bodies in the graves. Now it’s calling out your name And it’s asking me: “Can I?” (Me, you and a gun, tell me when you’re gone, trying to hold on like…) Can I wait for One more Or one last Accidental death threat? Can you hear that? It’s the sound of the ambulance, It’s not coming for you. Play me the Soundtrack of Trying to Hold On. And when damage is already done, And it’s not enough, it’s not enough, Play it back, play it back ‘til you’re gone. Play me the Soundtrack of Trying to Hold On. And when the poison hits your lungs, And it’s not enough, it’s not enough, I’ll take it back, take it back ‘til you’re gone. Me, you, and a gun. You’re gone.
10.
Sit in circles trying to fuck with the dead, It always fucks with me instead. When you were here we didn’t talk but now suddenly I’ve found all the words I should’ve said. But I’ll never be able to tell, We’re cursed souls in parallel. Already have what I’ve been looking for, but I will never give it to myself. Run in circles trying to fix your life, Or find morbid ways to kill the time. You spread your hand and lay it on the ground and stab the space between your fingers with the top of a knife. You can’t calm yourself down When you know there’s no way out. You tried to start a new thread, but you pulled it ‘til you found the same bitter end. I saw you dying in my sleep (and now I’m not waking up, I swear I held you close now it’s not enough) The killer looked a lot like me (Gouge out both my eyes, I swear I just can’t bear to Watch you die again) So are you talking to yourself, Or are you talking to a ghost? Ain’t it funny honey, doesn’t matter who cause in the end the words haunt you the most. Tried to open yourself up, You felt worse and just gave up. Your body language said it all, “Just get out.” (So do you feel better yet?) I saw your burial last week (and now you're not waking up, I swear I held you close now it’s not enough) Been seven days, I still can’t eat (Bones shown through my skin, I swear I just can’t bear to Watch you die again) I saw you dying in my sleep (and now I’m not waking up, I swear I held you close now it’s not enough) Been seven days, I still can’t eat (Bones shown through my skin, I swear I just can’t bear to let you in) To tell you I’m sorry, to feel your last heartbeats, To beg you to haunt me everyday. Retinal burn of your body, Can’t remember you fondly, cause I swear I just can’t bear to Watch you die again.
11.
Don’t spare me. I’ll ask a little more despairingly. Cause Baby, you make me feel scary, And I’m addicted to fear, When you’re near. Before you go, Just let me know. I don’t think I’m in control. Let me know, will you let me know? I don’t think I can let you go, help me. Oh, Baby if your heart is a grave, please murder me. Barely. Barely beating, breaking daily. That’s how my heart is living lately. if you could even call it “living” at all. Fate? Please. Fate fucking died it doesn’t faze me. They push us drugs we push up daisies. While a mother buries another dead kid. Oh it’s sick, sick, sick, How am I supposed to find a goddamn way to go on Now that you’re gone? Well let me know. So let’s cut to the end, Cause I can’t pretend Like I have it in me to let you go. Let me know, Every day is a horror show. let me know, Take your time and kill me slow. help me. Baby if your heart is a grave, please murder me.
