"Flies" as written by and John Kempainen Trevor Strnad....
Down, start digging down your throat
Another string of lies is born
You must exemplify perfection
Bronzing a broken life of shit

You filthy liar
Septic tongue; shit-eating grin
Slow internal suicide
An inch within a trigger's pull again

This disease, it is your mainstay
It wears its wires within me
Tender tissues scraped away of secrets
Etched in nameless graves
The smell of vomit hangs in the air tonight
Blush, eyeliner, lipstick
It's all alright tonight

You filthy liar
Septic tongue; shit-eating grin
Love me with your yellowed smile
My flies are hungry for your kiss

Poison me my darling
Graves grow deeper with each passing day
This appalling love
Bask in your putrid revelry
Beauty lost in between the lashes of sick drunken eye

Like a fool, you have believed
Life of shame, you have fallen completely beneath

And when the curtains finally part,
You'll see that everyone is laughing
I am weakness, just like you
I'll bury you before you're dead

Cockroach come crawling home!
Crawl!
Slithering through this world of sculpted shit
So thrust those fingers deep my child,
It is your burden and your gift

You filthy liar
Septic tongue; shit-eating grin
Slow internal suicide
An inch within a trigger's pull again

Poison me my darling
Graves grow deeper with each passing day
This appalling love
Bask in your putrid revelry!

    General CommentI think it sounds a bit like bulimia, especially when he says, "So thrust your fingers deep, my child. It is your burden and your gift."

    General CommentTrevor has stated in an interview that this song is about a failed relationship with a recovering bulimic. He wasn't too specific, but I think it's something he actually experienced.

    General CommentYeah Trevor stated this song was about a failed love affair with a recovering bulimic, but he never stated whether it was fictional, or based on an actual experience..

    Will we ever know?
