I sold my soul
so long ago

& now I’m alone
here in the palace of sadness & madness & bone


then she said
to the ghosts in her head

I will find the edge
I will force my fingers in

I will sip from the slit
I will rip you to shreds
I will rip you to shreds


rape the nun
kill the saint
wear their skin

there is no way to escape
there is no way
you’ll escape


& I know
the road of truth is lined

with crucified criminals
& suicides

so maybe I’ll just cut my throat
maybe I’ll make you smile when I choke

hybrid creature of decay
there is no possible
way you’ll escape


rape the nun
kill the saint
wear their skin

there is no way to escape
there is no way
you’ll escape

[tunnel]

“yesterday upon the stair
I met a man who wasn’t there

he wasn’t there again today
I wish that man would go away
I wish that man go…”

shadow man standing in my room
smearing conspiracies for me to consume

shadow man has a plan just wait & see
you’ll all be sorry for fucking with me

(come out & plaaaay)

shadow man
shadow man
please go away

shadow man
shadow man
please go away
I really don’t feel like playing today!

I’m not ignoring you
I’m just plotting your doom

in a world that’s ready to drown
don’t stop-we have you now!


rape the nun
kill the saint
wear their skin

there is no way to escape
there is no way
you’ll escape

    Song MeaningIt's not about schizophrenia. It's about someone (her father?) who raped his daughter/niece/sister and used religion to justify his actions. i.e. "shadow man standing in my room, whispering his conspiracies for me to consume..."

    Look at the lyrics for "House of Secrets".
