We live like creatures
We love like homicide
We'll write your future
Control both space and time

We control reality
We control your chemistry, baby
Rearrange anatomy
Deep within these shadows we're alive

Look at all these imbeciles
Shaking hands while decomposing
We've crunched these numbers
And we've found that your sould is null and void

(Chorus)
Come with me you pretty thing
And we'll celebrate with amputations
We've wasted everything
And now they've come to take our children
Your secret's safe with me
I'll take it to the grave now, baby
God help you please my dear
I'm gonna take your dead soul away

Below these sutures
Hate flows like cyanide
Destroy your future
Consume your everything

We destroy reality
We control your chemistry, baby
Rearrange mortality
What we do is not your concern

(Chorus)

We live like creatures
We love like homicide
We'll write your future
Control both space and time
We live like creatures
We love like homicide
We live like creatures

When your heart broke off and
Your words were cut off then
Your conscience shut off so
Romorse is useless now

God doesn't want us back now, baby
(God doesn't want us back now, baby)
(x4)
