Mr. Self Destruct                                                                               oben

 

I am the voice inside your head.......And I control you

I am the lover in your bed.............. And I control you

I am the sex that you provide..........And I control you

I am the hate you try to hide...........And I control you

I take you where you want to go

I give you all you need to know

I drag you down I use you up

Mr. self destruct

 

I speak religion's message clear.........And I control you

I am denial guilt and fear...................And I control you

I am the prayers of the naive.............And I control you

I am the lie that you believe.............. And I control you

I take you where you want to go

I give you all you need to know

I drag you down I use you up

Mr. self destruct

 

I am the needle in your vein............And I control you

I am the high you can't sustain.........And I control you

I am the pusher I'm a whore.......... And I control you

I am the need in you for more.........And I control you

 

I am the bullet in the gun....................And I control you

I am the truth from which you run......And I control you

I am the silencing machine.................And I control you

I am the end of all your dreams........ And I control you

 

I take you where you want to go

I give you all you need to know

I drag you down I use you up

Mr. self destruct

 

 

Piggy                                                                                                       oben

 

Hey pig

Yeah you

Hey pig piggy pig pig pig

All of my fears came true

Black and blue and broken bones you left me here I'm all alone

My little piggy needed something new

 

Nothing can stop me now

Cause I don't care anymore

Nothing can stop me now

Cause I don't care

Nothing can stop me now

Cause I don't care anymore

Nothing can stop me now

Cause I just don't care

 

Hey pig

Nothing's turning out the way I planned

Hey pig there's a lot of things I hoped you could help me understand

What am I supposed to do I lost my shit because of you

 

Nothing can stop me now

Cause I don't care anymore

Nothing can stop me now

Cause I don't care

Nothing can stop me now

Cause I don't care anymore

Nothing can stop me now

Cause I just don't care

 

Nothing can stop me now

Nothing can stop me now

Nothing can stop me

 

Nothing can stop me now

Nothing can stop me

 

Nothing can stop me now

Nothing can stop

 

 

Heresy                                                                                                 oben

 

He sewed his eyes shut because he is afraid to see

He tries to tell me what I put inside of me

He's got the answers to ease my curiosity

He dreamed a God up and called it Christianity

God is dead and no one cares

If there is a hell I'll see you there

He flexed his muscles to keep his flock of sheep in line

He made a virus that would kill off all the swine

His perfect kingdom of killing, suffering and pain

Demands devotion atrocities done in his name

God is dead and no one cares

If there is a hell I'll see you there

Your God is dead and no one cares

If there is a hell I'll see you there

God is dead and no one cares

If there is a hell I'll see you there your God is dead

God is dead and no one cares

And no one cares drowning in his own hypocrisy

And if there is a hell I will see you see you there

 

Burning with your God in humility

Will you die for this?

 

 

March Of The Pigs                                                                                 oben

 

Step right up march push

Crawl right up on your knees

Please greed feed (no time to hesitate)

I want a little bit I want a piece of it I think he's losing it

I want to watch it come down

Don't like the look of it don't like the taste of it don't like the smell of it

I want to watch it come down

 

All the pigs are all lined up

I give you all that you want

Take the skin and peel it back

Now doesn't that make you feel better?

 

Shove it up inside surprise! Lies

Stains like the blood on your teeth

Bite chew suck away the tender parts

I want to break it up I want to smash it up I want to fuck it up

I want to watch it come down

Maybe afraid of it let's discredit it let's pick away at it

I want to watch it come down

 

Now doesn't that make you feel better?

The pigs have won tonight

Now they can all sleep soundly

And everything is all right

 

 

Closer                                                                                                    oben

 

You let me violate you. You let me desecrate you

You let me penetrate you. You let me complicate you

Help me I broke apart my insides. Help me I've got no soul to sell

Help me the only thing that works for me. Help me get away from myself

 

I want to fuck you like an animal

I want to feel you from the inside

I want to fuck you like an animal

My whole existence is flawed

You get me closer to god

 

You can have my isolation. You can have the hate that it brings

You can have my absence of faith. You can have my everything

Help me you tear down my reason. Help me it's your sex I can smell

Help me you make me perfect. Help me become somebody else

 

I want to fuck you like an animal

I want to feel you from the inside

I want to fuck you like an animal

My whole existence is flawed

You get me closer to god

 

Through every forest, above the trees

Within my stomach. Scraped off my knees

I drink the honey inside your hive

You are the reason I stay alive

 

 

Ruiner                                                                                                    oben

 

You had all of them on your side, didn't you?

You believed in all your lies, didn't you?

The ruiner's got a lot to prove he's got nothing to lose and now he made you believe

The ruiner's your only friend well he's the living end to the cattle he deceives

The raping of the innocent you know the ruiner ruins everything he sees

Now the only pure thing left in my fucking world is wearing your disease

How did you get so big?

How did you get so strong?

How did it get so hard?

How did it get so long?

You had to give them all a sign, didn't you?

You had to covet what was mine, didn't you?

The ruiner's a collector he's an infector serving his shit to his flies

Maybe there will come a day when those that you keep blind will suddenly realize

Maybe it's a part of me you took it to a place I hoped it would never go

And maybe that fucked me up much more than you'll ever know

How did you get so big?

How did you get so strong?

How did you get so hard?

How did it get so long?

And what you gave to me

My perfect ring of scars

You know I can see what you really are

You didn't hurt me nothing can hurt me

You didn't hurt me nothing can stop me now

 

 

 

The Becoming                                                                                     oben

 

I beat my machine it's a part of me it's inside of me

I'm stuck in this dream it's changing me I am becoming

 

The me that you know he had some second thoughts

He's covered with scabs he is broken and sore

The me that you know he doesn't come around much

That part of me isn't here anymore

 

All pain disappears it's the nature of my circuitry

Drowns out all I hear no escape from this my new consciousness

 

The me that you know he used to have feelings

But the blood has stopped pumping and he's left to decay

The me that you know is now made up of wires

And even when I'm right with you I'm so far away

 

I can try to get away but I've strapped myself in

I can try to scratch away the sound in my ears

I can see it killing away all of my bad parts

I don't want to listen but it's all to clear

 

 

Hiding backwards inside of me I feel so unafraid

Annie, hold a little tighter I might just slip away

 

It wont give up it wants me dead

Goddamn this noise inside my head

 

 

I Do Not Want This                                                                              oben

 

I'm losing ground

Well you know how this world can beat you down

And I'm made of clay

I fear I'm the only one who thinks this way

I'm always falling down the same hill

Bamboo puncturing this skin

And nothing comes bleeding out of me just like a waterfall I'm drowning in

2 feet below the surface I can still make out your wavy face

And if I could just reach you maybe I could leave this place

 

I do not want this

I do not want this

I do not want this

I do not want this

 

And don't you tell me how I feel

Don't you tell me how I feel

Don't you tell me how I feel

You don't know just how I feel

 

I stay inside my bed

I have lived so many lives all in my head

And don't tell me that you care

There really isn't anything. Now is there?

You would know. Wouldn't you?

You extend your hand to those who suffer

To those who know what it really feels like

To those who have had a taste

Like that means something

And oh so sick I am

And maybe I don't have a choice

And maybe that is all I have

And maybe this is a cry for help

 

I do not want this

I do not want this

I do not want this

I do not want this

 

And don't you tell me how I feel

Don't you tell me how I feel

Don't you tell me how I feel

You don't know just how I feel

 

I want to know everything

I want to be everywhere

I want to fuck everyone in the world

And [1,2,3] I want to do something that matters

 

 

Big Man With A Gun                                                                                oben

 

I am a big man

(Yes I am)

And I have a big gun

Got me a big old dick and I

I like to have fun

Held against your forehead

Well I'll make you suck it

Maybe I'll put a hole in your head

You know. Just for the fuck of it

Well I can reduce you if I want

Well I can devour

I'm hard as fucking steel and I've got the power

I'm every inch a man and I'll show you somehow

Me and my fucking gun

Nothing can stop me now

 

 

Shoot shoot shoot shoot shoot

I'm going to come all over you

Me and my fucking gun

Me and my fucking gun

 

 

Eraser                                                                                                    oben

 

Need you

Dream you

Find you

Taste you

Fuck you

Use you

Scar you

Break you

Lose me

Hate me

Smash me

Erase me

 

 

Reptile                                                                                                    oben

 

She spreads herself wide open to let the insects in

She leaves a trail of honey to show me where she's been

She has the blood of reptile just underneath her skin

Seeds from a thousand others drip down from within

 

Oh my beautiful liar

Oh my precious whore

My disease my infection

I am so impure

 

Devils speak of the ways in which she'll manifest

Angels bleed from the tainted touch of my caress

Need to contaminate to alleviate this loneliness

I now know the depths I reach are limitless

 

Oh my beautiful liar

Oh my precious whore

My disease my infection

I am so impure

 

 

The Downward Spiral                                                                              oben

 

He couldn't believe how easy it was

He put the gun into his face

Bang!

(So much blood for such a tiny little hole)

 

Problems have solutions

A lifetime of fucking things up fixed in one determined flash

 

Everything's blue

In this world

The deepest shade of mushroom blue

All fuzzy

Spilling out of my head

 

 

Hurt                                                                                                    oben

 

I hurt myself today

To see if I still feel

I focus on the pain

The only thing that's real

The needle tears a hole

The old familiar sting

Try to kill it all away

But I remember everything

 

What have I become?

My sweetest friend

Everyone I know

Goes away in the end

You could have it all

My empire of dirt

I will let you down

I will make you hurt

 

I wear my crown of shit

On my liar's chair

Full of broken thoughts

I cannot repair

Beneath the stain of time

The feeling disappears

You are someone else

I am still right here

 

What have I become?

My sweetest friend

Everyone I know

Goes away in the end

You could have it all

My empire of dirt

I will let you down

I will make you hurt

 

If I could start again

A million miles away

I would keep myself

I would find a way
