Angels with phallic smiles release toxins within the isles
Born again from a deformed ritual
Lock up your daughters, hurry now

Do you still have your limbs?
Then you can run and catch up with the rest..
They’re feeding!

What now? Your bloods infected
It's all sinister and masturbated
Let go of his neck
You’ll find no glory among the dead.

Do you still have your limbs?
Then you can run and catch up with the rest..
They’re feeding!

They’re gonna get you, they’re gonna catch you
Take stakes and hatchets from in the ballroom
You shouldn’t play with dead things
You shouldn’t blame the dead things

Wipe the blood from your face
The bloods on your face
We are the hunters
Here’s for the hunters

Here they come, sleep well tonight
The snakes with rifles unleash in flight
They’re coming for you, so head for the storeroom
And get your positions

Bury, Bury the corpses, Lucifer’s crypt

Finding, finding out something, inside my heart
Bury, bury the corpses, the witches turn to stone

    General CommentI see it a little different... kinda as a big 'screw you' to religion. Maybe christianity specifically.
    Like, the first few lines make me think of a priest who rapes children. The priest would be the angel with a phallic smile. The child is born again into this deformed religion... so parents are warned to lock them up.
    Also, while religious people look forward to death, they actually shouldn't because it's all a fallacy and there's "no glory among the dead"
    I don't really know... I'm not one to be all that good at decoding lyrics, but for this one I just see vampires as a metaphor for something more meaningful.
    Great song regardless of the meaning.

    General CommentJohnny Truant are one of my most favourite fucking bands!

    This song is about some witches who summon vampires/vampire-like creatures that they can't control, and end up dying.

    General CommentJohnny truant are fucking amazing, been a fan for years, will have to post some of their older stuff- seven days at knife point is an incredible song. I think this song's about vampires
    "What now? Your bloods infected
    It's all sinister and masturbated
    Let go of his neck"
    and "take the stakes and hatchets" as in to kill the vampires (stake through the heart)

    General CommentFirst song by Truant that I ever heard.
    Thankyou scuzz.
    I fell in love with them straight away.
    This song seems to be about zombies? or vampires? Something along those lines.
