"You know the truth."
"Where are you?"
"You could call it the end of the world.."


You fucking parasite
Feeding off my voice like a leech
Sucking me dry
Use your head
Hope you're gagging in your throat
Hope you gag and choke
Your pale little face turning blue

If you want it in your ass as I spit in your face
Face down on the floor holding you by your neck
Do you feel like a wreck?
Well that's life, kiddo
Now shut up and swallow
Shut up and swallow

You'll get nothing for free
Don't try to suck it off me
You always take you what you want
Now I just take what is mine
I'll give you abstinence
You tell of life..
It's up to you to fill it with substance

I'll play your game
A lesson of life: It's not what you want, but what you get
You'll feel it from within as I work my way out
Such a pretty girl, but such a dirty mouth

Now you want it in your ass as I spit in your face
Face down on the floor, holding you by your neck
Do you feel like a wreck?
Well that is life, kiddo
Now shut up and swallow
Shut up and swallow

"Where are you?"
"You could call it the end of the world."

    Song MeaningUnfortunately I have to disagree with Shaysh.
    Even if it's obvious that this song is about domination and sex a further look into Combichrist's lyrics shows otherwise.
    Everything is a metaphore, a harsh one but still.
    It's full of anger and despair and those lyrics are highly ironic, it's not just about domination and sex, it's something like revenge, something like.. 'i spit the truth in your face, that's life kiddo, get over it.' :)

    Lyric CorrectionI'm pretty sure he says

    Hope you get it in your throat
    Hope you gag and choke
    Your pretty little face turning blue

    If you want it in your eyes as I spit in your face

    General CommentThe lyrics are wrong (corrections are capitalized):

    "You fucking parasite
    Feeding off my FLESH like a leech
    Sucking me dry
    Use your head
    Hope you GET IT in your throat
    Hope you gag and choke
    Your PRETTY little face turning blue"

    and

    "You'll get nothing for free
    Don't try to suck it off me
    You always take you what you want
    Now I just take what is mine
    I'll give you EMPTYNESS
    You tell of life..
    It's up to you to fill it with substance"
