"AOV" as written by and Craig Michael Jones Michael Shawn Crahan....
Black dirty teeth, in the crease
Was the proof too good to be believed?
It’s the cunt with the tongue
Who belongs on broken knees

So far it occurs to me
That everybody in the world is afraid of me
Just one more sin and down we go
But the news is out and I think I'm going to kill myself
Or fuck myself, or tell myself
About the only thing that matters now

We bury what we fear the most
Approaching original violence
Is the silence where you hide it?
'Cause I don't recognize you anymore

To each his own
Life can do with one less watered-down excuse
If this is over you can tell me it's no use

Use, just tell me it's over

Today we will deceive our better selves
Into assimilating pain from something else
Put on your face and show me why
Behind the scenes we had to simply comply

Now the community doesn't feel any better than it used to be
I want to be a judge in a criminal case
You covered up, did you cultivate?
Be yourself, not yourself, know yourself
'Cause no one seems to know you now

We carry what we can't control
Approaching original violence
In the silence there's a nihilist
Who doesn't care and never did

To each his own
Life can do with one less watered-down excuse
There comes a time when we can't take the same abuse
If this is over you can tell me it's no use

Use

Drug out, pissed on, everything's the same
Bitch and moan, it doesn't matter, nothing's going to change
I don't want to watch another brother fucking die
So discarded, fallen by the side
Don't tell me it's the only way
Just another reason why you never take the bait
The trials, the scheming, the burden of the beast
Both your faces turn your back on everything you fought to save a dream

Now that it’s over
When this is over

We are the angels, fear to tread
Approaching original violence
We're the silence, we'll deny it
We can't continue on like this

To each his own
Life can do with one less watered-down excuse
There comes a time when we can't take the same abuse
My god, it would've taken just one word to stay from you
Now that this is over you can tell me it's no use
Now that this is over you can tell me it's no use

Use, just tell me it's over

It doesn't matter what you say
It doesn't matter what you do
We can't continue on like this

    General Commenti can't be positive but this looks like its about joey jordinson and possible substance abuse. again this is speculation but the lines about losing another brother and the later lyrics about trials definitely point towards this.

    General CommentIt sounds to me like this song is about anyone turning on them through the bands hiatus namely Joey and Brenda Gray, and cutting them off.
