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

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*

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

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!

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

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*

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

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

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

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!
