Track Name: I Bathe in Blood
Come here, come to me my dear...
Dry your tears and draw a bath you'll fill it with your
Crimson flood, your pure untainted virgin blood
Restores...

Their sweet screams like a chorus of angels singing to me!
Mutilated dolls...
I bask in their shame, their exquisite pain!

Mirror, mirror on the wall
Who is the fairest of them all?
Erzebet it will always say
For I bathe in the blood of the girls I slay

Strip her naked!
See her bound!
I'll bite her!
Burn her!
Hold her down!
Toss her out so she will freeze!
I want her begging on her knees!
My assistants, trusted aids!
Hold her down and pass the blade!
How much can her body take?
With pain and time her mind will break!

Beg me!
I want so hear you plead!
So pretty...and weak...
I want to see you bleed!

I am the Countess...ruler of this land
They'll send their daughters to the slaughter if that's what I command!

Beauty...tyrant...cruel, vain and violent....
I'm all these things yet still I reign
All powerful in my domain

Strip her naked!
See her bound!
I'll bite her!
Burn her!
Hold her down!
Toss her out so she will freeze!
I want her begging on her knees!
My assistants, trusted aids!
Hold her down and pass the blade!
How much can her body take?
With pain and time her mind will break!
These peasant girls are mine to use
To eat and kill and to abuse!

Pleasure and pain spend eternity together, endless lovers!
Like the wolf and moon
One and the same, my pleasure, their pain!

I stand accused, I lose it all...
My trusted servants take the fall
They die and I wish I had too
Condemned to rot in my castle room...

Beauty...tyrant...cruel, vain and violent
I'm all these things and now they see
This is how they'll remember me

I am the Countess, walled up and left to die...
Blood and shame taint the Bathory name
I'll forever horrify
Track Name: The Dark Side of Oz
The wind began to switch, the house to pitch
And suddenly the hinges started to unhitch!
Just then, the Witch, to satisfy an itch
Went flying on her broomstick, thumbing for a hitch!

I’m not dreaming Auntie Em!
It’s all real Auntie Em!
I’m not crazy Auntie Em!
Please believe me Auntie Em!

My tale of Oz starts out like this - I landed on a wicked witch!
Our house went flying through the sky! The twister carried me
Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high

They tell me I’m losing my mind
*Delusions getting worse*
Permission slips have been signed
*Hold her down nurse*
Strapped down to the hospital bed
*Don’t worry Dorothy*
Electrodes attached to my head
*We’ll try shock therapy*

When I wake up I’m in Oz again
On the yellow brick road with my straw filled friend
We link our arms as we sing our song
And the lion and tin man skip along

Suddenly I feel uneasy
The sun is gone, it’s dark and creepy

I’ll get you my pretty!
And your little dog too! Ahahahah!
Release the flying monkeys!
I’m coming for you!

This world of wonders I adore - I’m not in Kansas anymore
I won’t go back, I’m here to stay – the asylum awaits me there anyway

**The witch casts her spell in the poppy field, and our slumber is deathly deep
But if I’m already dreaming, then how can I fall asleep?**

When we wake up we skip on our way
The City’s in sight, but the skies are grey
The wind is howling, sun is gone
A tornado approaches to take me home

I see our farm – it’s a thousand feet below
*There’s no place like home, oh there’s no place like home*
I scream as a spin – no I don’t want to go!
*There’s no place like home, oh there’s no place like home*

They lock me up, and they throw away the key
Auntie Em, I’m not mad! Sweet Ozma save me!

Suddenly the Witch appears to me
She tells that she means to set me free!

I’ll save you my pretty!
And your little dog too! Ahahahah!
No one gets to kill you but me!
I’ve come to free you!

My tale of Oz it ends up like this – I’m friends now with the Wicked Witch!
If it’s a dream, I don’t much care – I live here in this place that’s
Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high

They tell me she’s lost her mind
*Delusions getting worse*
Permission slips have been signed
*Hold her down nurse*
Strapped down to the hospital bed
*Don’t worry Dorothy*
They’re cutting into her head
*We’ll try lobotomy*
Track Name: Rise
You have held me down for far too long,
I still remember all the lies you whispered in my ear
The blood you spilled
With every beating
And every time I wondered what I’d done
To make you hate me, there must be something wrong with me
But look now mother
Look what I’ve become

I’m just a lamb to the slaughter
‘Cause I’m condemned to be your daughter
I used to be so weak, the rage it makes me strong,
Only God can save you now but the Devil will get your soul

I’ll rise, rise, rise
Stand up be counted,
You’ll die, die, die
But I’ll love you ‘til the end

You’re meant to catch me when I fall,
All you see is your pain and I carry it all,
I love you more than you’ll ever know
But I just can’t take this anymore

I put my back against my bedroom door
I hear you screaming at me fuelled by your addiction
You call my name
“You little whore”
And now I have to choose between your life
And living mine without this fear, this degradation
I have chosen
You lose your life

You’re just a lamb to the slaughter
You’ll die at the hands of your daughter
I used to be so weak, the rage it makes me strong
Only God can save you now but the devil will get your soul

I’ll rise, rise, rise
Stand up be counted,
You’ll die, die, die
But I’ll love you ‘til the end

The rage is taking over me
My vision blurs, I hear you scream
The blade is in my hand and I
I rip at you, I tear at you, I bleed you
And now you fade in front of me
I’ve cut the cord, I’ve become free
There’s nothing like a mother’s love
I rip at you, I tear at you, I bleed you

You’re meant to catch me when I fall,
All you see is your pain and I carry it all,
I love you more than you’ll ever know
But I just can’t take this anymore
Track Name: Duality of Personality
Jekyll
My serum complete!
A breakthrough is near!
I'll test the effects
Drink it down with my fear...

What are these feelings?
What do they mean?
I feel dizzy and nauseous
I'm changing it seems...

Jekyll - Is this death? My final breath?
Hyde - Well you know what they say about curiosity! Now you find yourself possessed by the urges you repress!
Jekyll - The mirror lies! That can't be me!
Hyde - Look deep inside and you'll find Miss Hyde! I'm the bad seed, your dark duality!

Jekyll
I'm a slave to guilt and conscience
Bound whilst she is free
We are but two halves of the same coin
The wicked part of me

Addicted to Hyde
She lives out my dreams
Unburdened by morals
A rare luxury

But now I am changing unwillingly
No serum consumed yet still she breaks free!
I fall to my knees!
She's taking over me!
I fall to the floor!
Can't hold her back anymore!
She's free...free...
Hyde- - FREE! Haha!

Hyde
Hello world, I'm Miss Hyde
The fun part of Jekyll, the treacherous side!
The strength to her weakness
The bad to her goodness
The glee to her sadness
A symptom of madness!
And I'm in charge so hold on tight!
I'm running this fucking show tonight!
I do the things she can't
I live the way she won't
I take all that she wants
I am what she is not

I look in the mirror and what do I see?!
Is that Jekyll or is it me?
It's me of course!
Drunk and depraved!
Debauchery is my middle name!
I feel the good Doctor deep in my mind
As I kill and I fuck she pretends to be blind
I know that she loves this as much as I do
But still she protests and tries to break through!

Hyde - You can't have this life!
Jekyll - Give it back Hyde!
Hyde - I'll cut you out with a knife!
Jekyll - Stop, you'll kill us both!!!
Hyde - You need what I can give
Jekyll - I only want control!
Hyde - You should die so I can live!
Jekyll - Shut up and leave me alone!

Jekyll
I don't need you Hyde! I don't need you Hyde! I don't need you Hyde! I don't need you Hyde!

I'm me again!
My mind is now clear!
I look in the mirror!
She does not appear!

But now I am craving the pleasures she brings
I'm frightfully bored with pulling the strings
I want to give up...
I want to give in...
Succumb to desires...
Live my life in sin!

Jekyll - It's sweet relief to unleash the beast
Hyde - I exist to take the blame, your desire is my shame! You're a coward and a runt, you're a spinal fucking cunt!
Jekyll - I will fade so you remain...
Hyde - I'm so happy you can see, it's the way that it should be! Though I live life on the run, I can promise you'll have fun!

Hyde
She's a slave to guilt and conscience
Bound while I am free
We are but two halves of the same coin
The kinder part of me

I don't need you Jekyll! I don't need you Jekyll! I don't need you Jekyll! I don't need you Jekyll!

Give up and give in! Live life, embrace sin! Give up and give in! Live life embrace!
Track Name: The Butcher
Butcher

Soon...you'll be packed into a few neatly wrapped hefties...
And my own, small corner of the world will be a neater...
Happier place

The end is near, you’re on your knees
No one but me to hear your pleas
All hope is gone now time stands still
You feed my darkness, my need to kill

This crawling, scratching thing inside
The Passenger that plagues my mind

It wants you now, you’ll pay the price
You are my fucking sacrifice
You did the crimes you have to pay
I must fulfil my urge to slay

Your blood now spilled is mine to keep
I am the Butcher you are the sheep

You have nothing left to lose
You have nothing left to take
There is nothing you can do
Just give in to death’s embrace

I’ll cut you harder
Push you further
I’ll make you bleed
This is the end
The end for you
But not for me

Your light is dark, your eyes are closed
Your lips are dead and cold
Your mind is numb, your thoughts untold
Now you’re like me; you have no soul

Only when you choke upon your own blood
Can I really see
And only in your final moments
Am I really free
Track Name: Bloodshed in Wonderland
I see bodies strewn like broken dolls
And the roses are painted black
I hear a grating, grinding lullaby
Sung by a talking cat

Miaow...miaow...

I skip along and the sights I see!
I meet a smiling cat in a tree!
There’s Tweedledum and Tweedledee!
And we all sit down with the Hatter for tea!

Falling! Bleeding! Now I’m screaming!
Am I dreaming?
*Falling down the rabbit hole*
Twisting! Turning! Stomach churning!
Is this happening?
*Falling down the rabbit hole*

Medicated...mind sedated...now I’m placated
*We’re all a little mad in here!*

I can’t outrun my twisted mind
It’s hopeless
*Alice! Wake up Alice!*
Tendrils of madness snaked like vines
Bringing darkness
*Alice! Wake up Alice!*

I hear the doctor call my name
I feel him take my hand
It’s much too late, I’m too far gone
He can’t save me from this land

The riddles start, this madness attacks
I feel it take over, the world starts to crack
I try to think but I’m losing track
My tea is blood and the sky is black

I meet the monster, Queen of Red
Throne room dark and filled with the dead
All of Wonderland is filled with dread
As she eats their hearts and she takes their heads
She puts a blade into my hand
She wants me to judge a guilty man
I see my doctor on the stand
So…I say…off with his...off with his...off with his...off with his head!

I’m curious if this is all a dream
My doctor’s head in my hands
It matters not; I guess it’s all the same
When there’s bloodshed in Wonderland

I can’t outrun my twisted mind
It’s hopeless
*Alice! Wake up Alice!*
Tendrils of madness snaked like vines
Bringing darkness
*Alice! Wake up Alice!*
Dress soaked in blood, grin on my face
And I’m laughing
*Alice! Wake up Alice!*
For I will never leave this place
I’m trapped here
*Alice! Wake up Alice!*

Falling! Bleeding! Now I’m screaming!
Am I dreaming?
*Falling down the rabbit hole*
Twisting! Turning! Stomach churning!
Is this happening?
*Falling down the rabbit hole*
Track Name: Your Face is MY Face
The Cook
Run outta gas you say?
Drive over yonder, my home’s that way!

There you’ll meet my family!
Yeah, my Grandma’s a corpse, Grandpaw’s seen better days
I don’t enjoy the killin’ but my brothers don’t agree
One hitchhikes for fun, the other…well you’ll see

Hello there stranger, you look lost!
Wandered into a cannibal holocaust!

Leatherface
I love to hunt, I love to chase
I’ll catch you and I’ll wear your face
A mask of flesh cut from the bone
That’s freshly flayed, carefully sown
Limbs are flying, blood like rain
Humans make the best of game
Rev my chainsaw, carve your meat
You look good enough to eat!

Your face is MY face
And your flesh is my steak
And your skin will be flayed to furnish my home
Your bones for my dogs
And your guts for my hogs
And your blood and your gore all over the floor

The Cook
I’m just the cook you see
Killin’ is nasty, but necessary

Fee fi fo fum!
Oh he’s coming for you and you’d better run boy!
Trespass here? Oh you’re tempting fate
He’ll cut you up and he’ll take your face

The Cook - We all gotta eat and meat ain’t cheap! Oh!
Leatherface - Squeal little piggy! Squeal! Squeal little piggy!
The Cook - We waste not want not, we covet and keep! Oh!
Leatherface - Squeal little piggy! Squeal! Squeal little piggy!
The Cook - We’ll make it quick, so you won’t feel it! But you scream and cry, you don’t wanna die!

Leatherface
Your face is MY face
And your flesh is my steak
And your skin will be flayed to furnish my home
Your bones for my dogs
And your guts for my hogs
And your blood and your gore all over the floor

The Cook
You’ll do anything you say?
I’d love to save you, honestly!

I don’t want you sufferin’
But please understand, you can’t get away no!
You have to die, but it’ll be humane!
You’re only cattle to us, low on the food chain

The Cook - The skills for slaughter Grandpaw taught
Leatherface - Bash in their brains, or use a rope to choke
The Cook - Drain a body, tie a knot
Leatherface - Hang them from a hook, cut their fucking throat
The Cook - Killing is our family way
Leatherface - If you ain’t family, you’re fair game
The Cook - Taught to murder
Leatherface - Raised to slay
Track Name: Mad Love
Pleased ta meetcha! How'd ya do?!
How's about a kiss?
Ha! Joke's on you!
You can't have me!
This princess has her prince and he loves me
(He loves me not)
He loves me!
(He loves me not)

Sometimes I wonder why my Mistah J laughs when I cry
But wait!
He must have been provoked!
Or maybe I don't get the joke...

Roll up! Roll up for the greatest show on Earth!
*giggles*
Guaranteed to entertain!
We're gonna kill the Batbrain!
Drive some people insane!
Always leave 'em laughin'
(Cryin'? Screamin'?)
A smile a day keeps the doctor away!
When Bats is dead he'll see me!
My puddin' will be happy
Seducin' him is easy -
Don't you wanna rev your Harley?!
Vroom vroom!

It's meant to be, my puddin' an' me
He's swell, he's great
My psycho soulmate!
It's madness you say to love him this way?
I'd cross every line
If the clown prince is mine!

So I smile through bloodied lips and tear stained eyes
Please tell me what did I do wrong this time?
Sticks and stones may break my bones but his words cut like a knife
When I fail again will he end my life?

Left broken, discarded
I always learn the hard way
Courting death, I can see
My need for him will kill me

Then Ivy picks me up again
She dusts me down my dearest friend
He has my mind she has my heart
But still I go back to the start

And so I face this with a grin
I know he's sorry
He will see that he needs me
Though he can't say the words
I know that he loves me
(He loves me not)
He loves me
(He loves me not)

Sometimes I wonder if Red's right
If I am blinded by my
Love
He tossed me out into the rain
It seems I've screwed up yet again!

(Aw nuts, it's Batman!)

Jingle bells, Batman smells
Robin laid an egg
My puddin's gonna kick your ass
And break both of your legs!
Joker had a wittle bat
He twisted off it's wings
He bit off it's wittle head
'Cause bats are his playthings!
Let's hear that geetar sing!

*solo*

Thrown from the window, I hit the ground
My vision fades, I'm not laughing now
The guy I love caused me this pain
But I go back to him again

He sends me flowers
Says get well soon
How can I resist this charmin' loon?
I'm in too deep
Constantly ask myself if he loves me
(He loves me not)
He loves me
(He loves me not)

Sometimes I think it might be nice
To stay with Red, take her advice
But somethin's broken, somethin's wrong
Trapped in his smile
This show must go on

So roll up! Roll up for the greatest show on Earth!
*giggles*
Guaranteed to scare and maim!
We're gonna kill the Batbrain!
Drive some people insane!
Always leave 'em laughin'
(Dyin'? Pleadin'?)
You’ll die today; you might wanna pray
I have a confession
Puddin's my obsession
I am his possession!

It's meant to be, my puddin' an' me
He's swell, he's great
My psycho soulmate
It's madness you say to love him this way?
I'd cross every line
If the clown prince is mine

Left broken, discarded
I always learn the hard way
Courting death, I can see
My need for him will kill me
Track Name: Dark Disease
Who will pick you up when I fall to the ground beside you?
Who will dust you down, pick up the pieces, get you through?
‘Cause I am now exhausted, surviving’s what I do
If no one’s there to help me, why the fuck should I help you?

Fight, resist, get up off your knees
Swallow your excuses struggle through the dark disease

Life is not kind, life is not fair
Life is a grind filled with despair

Remember they are watching, waiting for you to fail
The driving need to show them keeps me fighting tooth and nail
So when you feel like giving up, when it’s easier to give in
Think of their smug faces twisting into a grin

Hate, rage, do whatever gets you through
But don’t just lay down like a bitch and let the world fuck you

The darkness overwhelming, the world in shades of grey
Keep crawling, moving forward, break the surface see the light of day
But the will to fight is fading, when you cry you cry alone
The weak are left behind here, and the motivation’s gone

Getting through the next second
Pushing through your doubt
You keep breathing in
And you keep breathing out
You feel nothing at all
You think that no one cares
You're lost in the dark
Life's a pit of despair
You're dying...You're dying...You're dying...You're dying!

I can’t fight your battles for you, I’m waging my own war
Only you can help yourself, hope is what you’re fighting for
So stop with your self pity and show me what you can do
Or lose yourself in misery, the choice it lies with you

Die or live, only you can choose
But if you opt for giving in, only you will lose
Track Name: Diabolus
Regan
I've made a new friend and he knows the funnest game!
It's called Ouija, Captain Howdy is his name!
He does the answer when I make the question
When I ask what he wants, he spells out possession?!

Mother?! Mother?! Make it stop!!! Please Mother!

Captain Howdy
The sow is mine! My new concubine!
Let Jesus fuck you! Let Jesus fuck you!
Quod nomen mihi est! Diabolus Satanas!
Let Jesus fuck you! Let Jesus fuck you!

This innocent lamb so beautifully flawed
She's one of us now!
Abandoned by God!

And now they call the Doctors to analyse her brain!
Those foolish fucking maggots!
Oh this beast cannot be tamed!

Doctor - Is there someone inside you Regan?
Regan - Sometimes...
Captain Howdy - She is MINE!
Doctor - Do you believe you're possessed by Satan?
Regan - I don't know...
Captain Howdy - Are you fucking blind?!
Doctor - If she believes this Christian lore an Exorcist could hold the cure...

Captain Howdy - Dimmy...Dimmy?! Why you do this to me Dimmy?!

Priest
It's the power of Christ that compels you!
It is God himself who commands you!
God the Father commands you!
God the Son commands you!
God the Holy Spirit commands you!
The mystery of the Cross commands you!
The blood of the Martyrs commands you!
It's the power of Christ that compels you!

Captain Howdy
You killed your mother Karras...
You left her alone to die!
So cold and fucking callous...
You didn't even say goodbye...
Your mother sucks cocks in Hell!
Your mother sucks cocks in Hell!

Regan
I'm trapped in my own body, forced to play his game...
He's not my friend and Captain Howdy's not his name...
He does the answers when they ask their questions
Always gets what he wants, he never asks permission

Mother...Mother...Please save me Mother!

Captain Howdy
We're coming to get you! We're coming to get you! We're coming to get you! We're coming to get you!
Now we've killed your fucking Priests!
And there's no one who remains!
Who can send us back to Hell!
No we cannot be contained!
'Cause they are faithless cunts!
And your doctors are so blind!
So we'll start out with the girl!
Then we'll take all of mankind!

Mother! Mother! Don't send me away Mother!
