Nails in the coffin, blood in the streets
Teenage runaway, dead before dawn

In the morning sun, I discovered you
Lying as still as the moon, you were as blue as the sea
That was the first time i discovered a dead body

Living a million deaths of desire
The dance of the dead is igniting the fire
Driven to madness and cursed by the light
Slip into shadows that resemble night

Deathbed, last confession, tell me what I want to hear

And then the second time was just a few feet away
Hit by a car at high speed under the pouring rain

Living a million deaths of desire
The dance of the dead is igniting the fire
Driven to madness and cursed by the light
Slip into shadows that resemble night

Midnight resurrection, take me to the sacrifice
Before they mastermind my misery, exorcise the demons

So ugly on the outside, all consuming from the inside out

Angels and demons dancing on your grave
Death lives forever in a spiraling decay
You're beautiful and far too young to die
A pale shade of blue with empty lifeless eyes

Restless apparition, over that haunted hill
Thank you for showing me death has a witness
You've opened up my eyes

As you slip away, fade away

Possess the psyche, you bloated cadaver
Swallow my soul if that's what you're after
Fear and fatigue as death reappears
I'll bludgeon the one who invited you here

Deathbed, last confession, tell me what I want to hear

Living a million deaths of desire
The dance of the dead is igniting the fire
Driven to madness and cursed by the light
Slip into shadows that resemble night

Midnight resurrect, take me to the sacrifice
Before the mastermind my misery, exorcise the demons
