Track Name: Devil in Hand
Won't go down for the sins of man
Though I've sinned again and again
Away I'll go to the promised land
Away I'll go with the devil in hand

And I sing High
With my voice
Of my death
From my choice

I won't do anything for you
My mind's been poisoned through and through
I lost myself long ago
With out grace I will grow

And I sing
High With my voice
Of my death
From my choice
Track Name: Into the Night
Into the night, into the night
Through the fire, through your fright
Angel of light, angel of light
Hold me close, into the bright

Into the night, into the night
Through the fire, through the fright
Angel of light, angel of light
Hold me close, so very tight

Oh the light burns so very bright

Into the night, into the night
Through your fire, through your fright
Angel of light, angel of light
Hold me close, so very tight
Track Name: Man from Paris
I moved from Paris
To Minneapolis
To escape the war
I've now setup shop
Under the big top
Where I will soar

Now I've got secret
A dirty little secret
Darkness dwells in me
Delightfully twisted
and full of hatred
I will never be free

The wicked, the evil, with razors, and sickles
The saints, the angels, with halos, and heroes
Are all raging inside, my mind

A knife Thrower by day
A killer I’d say
To hell I am bound
But you don’t need worry
My memory isn’t blurry
You'll be safe and sound

For the throats I’ve taken
Were bound for damnation
and I am always so careful
So please don’t fear
Don’t shed a tear
Unless you’re one of the Dreadful

The wicked, the evil, with razors, and sickles
The saints, the angels, with halos, and heroes
Are all raging inside, my mind
Track Name: My Russian Love
where are you my love.

We met in the summer
We courted through fall
We knew they would hate this
But we still won their ball
But when they found us entwined
They screamed and you fell
They ripped us apart
when they dragged you to hell

Dance your way home to me
Dance your way dear
Dance your way through the fire and the fear
Dance your way home to me
Dance your way dear
Dance your ballet my sweet darling dear

They laughed when I asked them
Just where you had gone
They laughed and they stabbed
And I fell
But we had the last laugh
When we rose up
We danced one more dance didn't we
My Russian love

Dance your way home to me
Dance your way dear
Dance your way through all the fire and the fear
Dance your way home to me
Dance your way dear
Dance your ballet my sweet bride to be
Track Name: The Butcher
Blood washes off easier then oil
To clean the flesh from your bones
You just need a pot set to boil

Knifes, saws, hammers, and nails
I shall break you down
and stuff you in barrels

Got a good old fashioned pit
With some wood and gas
your clothes will burn when lit

Forget your boss, forget your friends
There's nothing left of you
except for some odds and ends

Well they call me the butcher that's what I am
They call me the butcher that's what I am
Track Name: Filth
There’s a filth…growing inside of me

Guilt drowns the heart of the sinner
Laying awake in his bed at night
His decisions are wearing him thinner
He cant decide what’s wrong or right

I can fix what makes him broken
I can make him one the forgotten

There’s a filth…building inside of me

Heavy hangs the heart of the lonely
Sitting waiting for her love to come
Regretting the lost of her one and only
She is wallowing in her lonesome

I can fix what makes her broken
I can make her one the forgotten

There’s a filth…seeded inside of me
Track Name: The Believer
I’ve never been one to believe
I’ve never been one to believe
In what I can’t touch, what I can’t see
What I can’t feel, it does mean a thing

No I’ve never been one to believe
No I’ve never been one to believe
But in these hard times
I’ll believe anything

If it helps me, If it cures me
If it heals me, if it save me
To save me

As I lay me down to sleep
I pray the lord my soul to take
And if I die before I wake
I pray the lord my soul to take

I’ve never been one to believe
I’ve never been one to believe
In what I can’t touch, what I can’t see
What I can’t feel, it does mean a thing

No I’ve never been one to believe
No I’ve never been one to believe
But in these hard times
I’ll believe anything

If it helps me, If it cures me
If it heals me, if it save me
To save me

As I lay me down to sleep
I pray the lord my soul to take
And if I die before I wake
I pray the lord my soul to take
Track Name: Mark of Cain
Pouring out they go
Down the fields below
Moving through the trees
That fell like leafs
They're searching high and low
The demons are on my trail
Why must I move so slow
This is no time to fail

And I am no ones keeper
And I am going down the drain
I know I am a sinner
For I bare the mark of Cain

Our souls are going under
We've reached our very end
Forever will we wander
In the land of dead
No longer will you need to hind
No longer will you fear the end
You will go be with your kind
As the devil as your friend

For you are no ones keeper
Your life going down the drain
For you are a sinner
You bare the mark of Cain

Pouring out they go
Down the fields below
Moving through the trees
That fell like leafs
They're searching high and low
Those demons are on you trail
Why must you move so slow
This is no time to fail

We are no ones keeper
We are going down the drain
I know I am a sinner
We bare the mark of Cain
Track Name: The Crows
The crows they come in murders not droves
They peak and they claw right down to your bone
It’s the flesh they desire it’s your alone
They’ll peak and they’ll claw right down to your soul

The crows they come in murders not droves
They flap and they caw in their terrible tones
It’s my mind they desire it’s mine alone
They’ll flap and they’ll caw right down to your soul
Track Name: Hang Me
So hang me, string me up, Snap my neck
Send me down into my lover’s arms

My lover he lives in a cage
He was sent there for his rage
I saw him on the daily news
He is the one I will choose

It started with lovers’ notes
Sealed with beautiful quotes
I quickly won his affections
Without any single objections

So please my lovely dagger
Send me to him faster
Into your arms I will go
Down, down, down below

So hang me, string me up, Snap my neck
Send me down into my lover’s arms

Everyday I get are threats
I don’t have one single regret
I didn’t even hold my breath
Even when he was sentence to death

So please my lovely dagger
Send me to him faster
Into your arms I will go
Down, down, down below

So hang me, string me up, Snap my neck
Send me down into my lover’s arms
Track Name: The Murder
Well I was just walking home that night
From the bar that always treats me right
When I found you, you were as cold as ice
What did you do to pay such a price

You were so beautiful

When they found me holding you in my arms
I pushed back your hair using all of my charms
I couldn’t just step away from your bones
I couldn’t leave you there all alone

You were so beautiful

They called me a monster
They called me a liar
They called me a sinner
They called me a murderer

When I woke up I was surrounded by officers
The detectives were yelling at all of the amateurs
They pulled a confession from me that was murder
But I never could be any kind of monster

She was so beautiful
Track Name: Fossor
The dirt is all that I have known
Five generations of pushing in stone
Polishing graves and grooming the grass
Greeting your loved ones after you’ve passed

I dig all day, I dig all night
I move the earth with all my might
I dig all day, I dig all night
I dig your grave, I pack you in tight

The dirt is all that I want to know
It’s always there for me down below
Some people call me the groundskeeper
But I know the truth, I’m just a gravedigger

I dig all day, I dig all night
I move the earth with all my might
I dig all day, I dig all night
I dig your grave, I pack you in tight
Track Name: Unmarked Grave
No one should know what I've done
No one should know what I've done
Bury me in an unmarked grave
Bury me in an unmarked grave

No one should know where I am
No one should know where I am
Bury me in an unmarked grave
Bury me in an unmarked grave

No one should what I am
No one should what I am
Bury me in an unmarked grave
Bury me in an unmarked grave
