Bitter spells bed of bitches (in a ring)
Beauty covers hate $ $ HEY HEY!
Poison weaved by spiteful tongues (in a rage)
Venom Coagulates

Vanity Addict, I know you want it
Swelling under hide
Hollow corpse, perfume constricted
Cover the stench inside

They only love you 'coz you make them pretty
Beautiful victims of your devil candy


Make up is the mask you wear (lay it on, slather up)
When the façade breaks $ $ HEY HEY!
Candy shell is deadly sweet (cold meat)
Bitter after taste

Visceral monster, subdermal horror
Serpent under skin
Use a pen or use a hammer
Garrotte the saint within




Motives malformed spat out premature
Disorder spitting back
I keep all the knives you gave lovingly
Implanted in my back

Shiny wrapping, empty box
Life of mediocrity
Milk the kitty antidote
Months of misery


Chaos Inject (TEAR IT OUT)
Massive Defect (RIP APART)
Plastic Messiah (TEAR IT OUT)
Create Desire (EAT THE HEART)

    General CommentThis one confuses me. The $$ HEY HEY bit is very cheerleader-ish. The lyrics though. Spite against someone? I think it's spite against those typical bitches and fake twats you get in your life

    General CommentThis one just speaks of shallowness and the depths of it. How the make-up you wear, the clothes you wear are just there to cover up the nothingness within.

    General Commentit might have to do with how fake people are now.

    use make up as a mask seems like its just a cover-up for saying that everybody wears a mask so that others don't know the real them.

    General CommentTo me this is more about the magazines and media that INFLUENCE people to be fake and vain than the people themselves. It seems to be to be sort of personifying the media and trends as a seductive devil who people 'only love' because it 'makes them pretty'

    General Commentthis sounds like plastic surgery 2 me cuz the "$$" part like paying for it and like when it says"They only love you 'coz you make them pretty
    Beautiful victims of your devil candy" sounds like they luv the doctor who did the plastic surgery... but the make up prlly means diff iunno my opinion but I ♥ angelspit and when they go rip apart... sounds like when they cut off the extra fat or skin neways good song!

    General Commentits talking about how we think materialism and vanity cover up all the hate we have about anything and the desire to be beautiful according to the media is inside us. It makes us empty and we sugercoat the worst in us, every thing we hate about ourselves and it makes us empty, shallow people.
    This is basically a message to any media or person that aids to the media in making these "beautiful" clones and saying theyre not loved for anymore than what theyre making, the only reason theyre getting any credit is due to the desire we have for what they can provide us. Tearing up and surgically altering any shred of our own original spirit we have left to replace it with what they want. THEIR idea of what we should want.

    General CommentFrom an interview with Angelspit: "Create Desire is a comment on our society’s lust to consume. “Creating desire” is what marketing does to sell a product….even when the product is not needed. So drone consumers spend money on plastic trinkets they don’t need.
    If you want to see an example of this, check out most advertising campaigns for mobile phones. You don’t need half the stuff on a new phone, but you are brainwashed into thinking that you want it…so you convince yourself that you need it…and why not? your last contract is almost over….meanwhile the pile of plastic rubbish grows…and don’t believe the hype about recycling materials in phones – there is overwhelming evidence that recycling electronic parts is extremely non-environmentally friendly and uneconomical.

    We want to make our lyrics relevant to people. We want them to address the confusion and frustration that we all feel towards contemporary society. Although we don’t offer many answers, we want people to know that they are not alone in their feelings towards our society."
