SONG LYRICS:

Tales from Inside the Beast
BEHIND THIS CONVERSATION’S LURKING SOMETHING TRULY VILE
YOU SAY GOODBYE
THEN SUCK ME DRY
BEFORE YOU STAY AWHILE
THEN LYING COLD AND EMPTY
BODY READY TO INFLAME
YOU BLEED YOUR CATCH
THEN TOSS A MATCH
BUT YOU WON’T SAY MY NAME
WELL I…
CAN’T SAY YOU GAVE ME NOTHING
NO.
YOU GAVE ME THIS POSITION
HASH TAG
ON A MISSION
BREAKING FREE FROM THIS SUSPICION
I HEAR YOU
I DON’T NEED YOU
AND I WANT YOU TO CRY…
IF I COULD TAKE MY REGRETS
AND THEN PUT EM IN A PILE
IT’S PRECIPICE
THE WORST I GUESS
THE DAY I MADE YOU SMILE
THAT SMILE THE BEGINNING
OF A TWISTED LITTLE GAME
I MUST ADMIT
MY PIECES SPLIT
BUT THEY ALL LOOK THE SAME
WELL I…
CAN’T SAY YOU GAVE ME NOTHING
NO
YOU GAVE ME THIS POSTION
ON A MISSION
BREAKING FREE FROM THIS SUSPICION
I KNOW
YOU’RE WONDERING JUST HOW
YOU KNOW
YOU OUGHTA KNOW BY
NOW
THAT RETRIBUTION
FLYS
I HEAR YOU
I DON’T NEED YOU
AND I WANT YOU TO CRY…(REPEATS 1X)
Monogability (Women on the Beach)
I LISTEN TO YOU BREATHING WHILE YOU SLEEP
AS I WALK IN THE MORNING GLOOM
AND AS I WATCH YOU SLEEP I CAN’T BELIEVE THAT YOU
WILL PROBABLY BE MY DOOM
WELL MY MOUTH IS DRY AND STRONGLY TASTES OF CIGARETTES AND GIN
AS ALL THE WALLS INSIDE THIS TINY ROOM START SLOWLY CAVING IN
THAT’S WHEN I WONDER…YEAH I WONDER IF I FOUND THE ONE MY FRIENDS
WARNED ME A-BOUT…OH-------
WELL YOU KNOW I COULD BE SWIMMING WITH A DOZEN NAKED WOMEN
ON THE BEACH…YES I COULD
WE’D BE SIPPING DAIQUIRIS, IN A BALMY SUMMER BREEZE
OUT ON THE BEACH --- OH, WE WOULD
BUT THIS VOICE INSIDE KEEPS TELLING ME
I WOULD RATHER BE RIGHT HERE BESIDE YOU
WELL I CAN ALMOST FEEL THE BANGING
FROM THE HAMMER THAT IS HANGING
RIGHT BEHIND…
AND WHEN THAT HAMMER FALLS
I KNOW THAT IT WILL BREAK MY BALLS AND BLOW MY MIND
WELL I’VE NEVER KNOWN A SURE THING BUT I AM A BETTING MAN
AND IF YER CLAIMING TO BE PERFECT…I’M THE EMPEROR OF JAPAN
BUT IF YOU WANNA THROW THE DICE…I WONT THINK TWICE
I’LL PUT MY MONEY DOWN ON YOU OH----
WELL YOU KNOW I COULD BE SWIMMING WITH A DOZEN NAKED WOMEN
ON THE BEACH…YES I COULD
WE’D BE SIPPING DAIQUIRIS, IN A BALMY SUMMER BREEZE
OUT ON THE BEACH---OH, WE WOULD
BUT THIS VOICE INSIDE KEEPS TELLING ME
I WOULD RATHER BE RIGHT HERE BESIDE YOU
WELL YOU KNOW I COULD BE SWIMMING WITH A DOZEN NAKED WOMEN
ON THE BEACH…YES I COULD
WE’D BE SIPPING DAIQUIRIS, IN A BALMY SUMMER BREEZE
OUT ON THE BEACH---OH, WE WOULD
BUT THIS VOICE INSIDE KEEPS TELLING ME
I WOULD RATHER BE RIGHT HERE BESIDE YOU
THIS VOICE INSIDE KEEPS TELLING ME
I WOULD RATHER BE RIGHT HERE BESIDE YOU
THIS VOICE INSIDE KEEPS TELLING ME
I WOULD RATHER BE RIGHT HERE BESIDE YOU
What's Wrong With Me
I’M WALKING LIKE I’M STANDING STILL
AND MY OWN MIND’S MAKING ME ILL
ANOTHER VOMIT FLOWER IS GROWING IN THE BOWL
INJECT MY SOUL…
INTO-AH TRANCENDENTAL PLANE
WHERE EVERY ASSHOLE KNOWS MY NAME AND WANTS TO BUM A SMOKE
OR YACK ABOUT THE SAME…
IGNORANT SHIT!
SO WHEN…MY DEMONS COME FOR ME
THEY KNOW EXACTLY WHERE I’LL BE
STUCK IN THIS HELLHOLE
LIKE A BUG STUCK IN A JAR
WHAT’S WRONG WITH ME?
THEY SAY…MY CONSCIENCE IS ALL WRONG
SO CRUCIFY ME ON THE LAWN
AND LET ME BASK IN SELF-INFLICTED MISERY
THE BRAIN DRAIN CIRCUS THAT IS MINE
WHERE I GO TO WASTE MY TIME
ALONG THAT SLIP-SLIPPERY WIRE
TILL I’M DRIFTING EVEN HIGHER
WHAT, WHAT, WHAT WAS IT THAT THEY SAID?
ALL THOSE VOICES IN MY HEAD
TO MAKE, MAKE, MAKE, MAKE, MAKE, MAKE ME BE
WHAT- MY-EYES
RE-FUSE
TO SEE… TO RECOGNISE MY FACE
AS ITS BEEN TRAVELING THROUGH SPACE
AROUND THE EARTH…THEN OUT…AND STRAIGHT INTO THE SUN
WHERE I BELONG!
BLAST OFF… INTO THE BLACK UNKNOWN
WHERE I’LL BE WAITING ALL ALONE
TO LET SOME CREATURE SUCK MY BRAIN OUT OF MY SKULL
WHAT’S WRONG WITH ME?
WITH- EV-ERY MOMENT THAT I WAIT
I SLOWLY FEEL MYSELF DEFLATE
INTO A SACK OF FLESHY FAILURE ON THE FLOOR
THE BRAIN DRAIN CIRCUS THAT IS MINE
WHERE I GO TO WASTE MY TIME
ALONG THAT SLIP-SLIPPERY WIRE
TILL I’M DRIFTING EVEN HIGHER
WHAT, WHAT, WHAT WAS IT THAT THEY SAID?
ALL THOSE VOICES IN MY HEAD
TO MAKE, MAKE, MAKE, MAKE, MAKE, MAKE ME BE
SUCH A CRAZY… (SCAT)
SO WHEN…MY DEMONS COME FOR ME
THEY KNOW EXACTLY WHERE I’LL BE
STUCK IN THIS HELLHOLE
LIKE A BUG STUCK IN A JAR
WHAT’S WRONG WITH ME?
WITH EVERY MOMENT THAT I WAIT
I SLOWLY FEEL MYSELF DEFLATE
INTO A SACK OF FLESHY FAILURE ON THE FLOOR
Demons
LORD PLEASE KEEP THE DEMONS IN ME
FROM RANTING AND HOWLIN… AND CRAWLING UP MY KNEE
WELL YOU CAN TELL THE HOUNDS OF HELL HAVE RUN ME UP A TREE
OH THEY SMELL THE DEMONS IN ME
WELL MY HEART IT FEELS JUST LIKE A SKIPPING STONE
BUT I HATE COMPLAINING...I HATE TO PISS AND MOAN
SO WHEN I SINK INTO THE DRINK…I’M FINALLY ALL ALONE
YES, I REAP…WHAT I…HAVE SOWN
YEAH I’M CARVING OUT MY PIECE OF THE 505
BUT MY OWN IMPATIENCE…IS EATING ME ALIVE
AND WHEN I BLINK…I START TO THINK…IM READY TO ARRIVE
OR AT LEAST…JUST MANAGE …TO SURVIVE
LORD RELEASE THE DEMONS IN ME
THEY’RE BORED AND THEY’RE RESTLESS AND READY TO GO FREE
CUZ ALL I WANT’S A VAUGE RESPONSE TO SELL IT ALL TO ME
AND SEE MY DEMONS RELEASED
DEMONS AND ME…WANT TO BE FREE - SO JESUS AND I…MEET IN THE SKY
Ballad of You and Me
REMEMBER WHEN WE’D NEVER DIE
REMEMBER WHEN YOU ASKED ME WHY?
REMEMBER WHEN YOU MADE ME PROMISE YOU
NO MATTER WHAT GOES DOWN
WE’RE FINALLY SKIPPING TOWN
WE’RE PACKING UP AND FADING INTO BLUE
YOU LIKE FANCY TEA
I LIKE BEER AND WEED
BUT I LIKE STEALING KISSES FROM YOU BEST
CAUSE WHEN YOU DO YOUR THING
MY LIPS STILL TINGLING
I’M LOVING YOU AND LEAVING ALL THE REST
AND YOU NEED ME TOO
LIKE I DO
I NEED YOU (X2)
THEY ALWAYS SAID WE’D NEVER LAST
THEY SAID THAT WE HAD MOVED TOO FAST
THEY NEVER HEARD YOU CUSS AND MAKE ME SMILE
WE’RE LIVING ON THE RUN
AND CUZ YOU ARE THE ONE
I’M DRIFTING OFF AND DREAMING FOR AWHILE
BUT YOU NEED ME TOO
LIKE I DO
I NEED YOU (X2)
I KNOW YOU’VE BEEN FRUSTRATED
PISSED OFF AND IRRITATED
I CONCEDE IT’S BEEN A TRIAL
THROUGH FLAMES I’VE SEEN YOU SMILE
FOR 10 YEARS YOU’VE DARED TO LOVE ME
YOU’VE BEEN THE LIGHT ABOVE ME
YOU’RE THE ONLY ONE TO MAKE ME SEE THAT…
