The Dead One

"You tried to stop me, remember?
You tried to deface your own creation
But I stopped you
Did it hurt, did you feel pain?"

[Violent J]
Guess it all began when the bullet finally struck
And I walked away harmless, it must of been good luck
Or maybe I'm dead, I'm sorry but you're dead
Maybe I outta go anyway

[Violent J]
Strange things have happened since this day accord
A can hear a cold whisper in my every word
It's telling me I'm dead, I'm sorry but you're dead (no)
Maybe I outta go anyway

[Violent J]
I'm feeling so stiff as I walk out the house
My tongue's so dry, think it's rotting in my mouth
Oh, tell me am I dead? I'm sorry but you're dead ("it hurts")
Life goes on for some
My boys all stare at me I wonder what they think
They don't blink and my teeth keep popping out I stink
Oh, tell me am I dead? I'm sorry but you're dead
I don't want to die, maybe I outta go if I'm dead

[Violent J]
My soul is so heavy that it draws me to the floor
I can hear these demons knocking at my door
They're laughing at the dead, I'm sorry but you're dead (no)
I don't want to die, if you're dead, you're dead
I don't want to die...you're dead, not yet now...
I don't want to die...maybe I outta go
You're dead...I'm not goin' now...
I don't want to die, maybe I outta go
Not yet now...
I don't want to die...
I'm dead...
I don't want to die...
you're dead
not yet
you're dead...
not yet

i speak

YOU'RE DEAD, BITCH HAHAHAHAH!!!!!!!

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite songs, not just from the Ringmaster, but of all ICP's work. The song is essentially about someone dying and becoming a ghost, but not knowing about it.

    General Commentthis song is fucking creepy, i used to play it in my room with all the lights off late at night back in the day, and it would put me in some kind of a trance.

    General CommentExtremely creepy song. The lyrics alone aren't all that frightening, but combined with the background loops and the eerie woodwind instrument, it can make you piss yourself. I sware, I couldn't sleep one night because I listened to this right before bed.

    General CommentOne of their better songs and more meaningful songs. Has a pretty good structure, and an interesting vibe to the whole sound. I still enjoy this song now that I've grown out of most of their other songs.
