Brendan Steere The beast awakes. Feel-bad music for feel-bad fellas, and the one on which they finally crack into some actual ‘radio-friendly singles’ with I’m Not Warm and Thumbs Down. The only record that gives me those Anne Rice vibes, but ALSO those Danzig ones. It’s perfect just buy it. Favorite track: Eclipse.

Track Name: Thumbs Down
LIGHTING UP THE CANDELABRA
THIS MOOD IS GETTING QUITE MACABRE
JEERING FROM THE STADIUM
PERSEUS YOUR TIME HAS COME!
THAT’S WHEN…

I SAW HER HAND REACH OUT
AND I GOT THE BIG THUMBS DOWN

MARCHING TOWARD THE GUILLOTINE
POUNDING SHOTS OF CREATINE
STRUGGLING AGAINST MY SHACKLES
CRIPPLED BY A DIVING TACKLE
WHEN…

I SAW HER HAND REACH OUT
AND I GOT THE BIG THUMBS DOWN

IT’S FUN TO THINK ABOUT THE WAY YOU’LL DIE
IT’S NOT SO FUN TO TURN AROUND AND SAY YOU’RE SORRY
CRUCIFIXION ON THE BASEBALL DIAMOND
CALIGULA AND THE OFFENSIVE LINEMAN

I SAW HER HAND REACH OUT
AND I GOT THE BIG THUMBS DOWN
I DROPPED ONTO MY KNEES
AND I BEGGED THE EMPRESS ‘PLEASE!’

IT’S FUN TO THINK ABOUT THE WAY YOU’LL DIE
IT’S NOT SO FUN TO TURN AROUND AND SAY YOU’RE SORRY
CRUCIFIXION ON THE BASEBALL DIAMOND
CALIGULA AND THE OFFENSIVE LINEMAN
Track Name: Clocktower
I WAS SITTING ON THE PARK BENCH
YOU WERE WAITING IN THE CLOCKTOWER
SCRATCHING NAMES FROM YOUR ADDRESS BOOK
HOPING I WOULD MAKE THE LIST,
MAKE THE LIST AND YOU WOULD

TOPPLE ME LIKE A DOMINO
JULIET AND HER ROMEO
FIND MY FACE WITHIN THE SCOPE
IGNORE THE LUMP INSIDE YOUR THROAT AND
PULL- PULL- PULL THE TRIGGER
PULL- PULL- PULL THE TRIGGER

90 DEGREES OUT IN THE SUNLIGHT
HAIR PULLED BACK OFF OF YOUR FOREHEAD
I REFLECT ONTO THE CONCRETE
HOPING YOU WOULD CATCH THE GLINT,
THE GLIMMER IN YOUR EYE AND YOU WOULD

TOPPLE ME LIKE A DOMINO
JULIET AND HER ROMEO
FIND MY FACE WITHIN THE SCOPE
IGNORE THE LUMP INSIDE YOUR THROAT AND
PULL- PULL- PULL THE TRIGGER
PULL- PULL- PULL THE TRIGGER

WARNING SHOT!
WHIZZED JUST PAST MY EAR
MOMENTS LIKE THIS
SHOW YOU REALLY CARE
SURRENDER!
MY HANDS ARE OFF THE WHEEL
JUST A WARNING
BUT I WISH THAT YOU HAD DONE IT FOR REAL

I’M NOT LEAVING CAMPUS!
I’M NOT LEAVING CAMPUS!
I’M NOT LEAVING CAMPUS!
I’M NOT-!
Track Name: Darkness Falls
WHITE NAIL POLISH IN THE DARK
BLACKNESS CREEPS INTO MY HEART
PICKING MY FACE IN THE MIRROR
NO. 3 SHIFTS INTO SIXTH GEAR

OH!
DID YOU KNOW THERE’S NOWHERE YOU CAN GO TO ANYMORE?
CAN YOU SEE THERE’S NO ONE LEFT TO GUIDE YOU THROUGH THE SWAMP?
DO YOU FEEL YOU’RE TRAPPED INSIDE YOUR BODY, FOREVERMORE?
CAN YOU FEEL THAT? DO YOU FEEL THAT?

CUTTING MY HAIR IN THE BACK YARD
WILD ANIMAL STANDS HER GUARD
PULL ME JUST A LITTLE BIT CLOSER
INTO THE PATH OF A BULLDOZER

OH!
DID YOU KNOW THERE’S NOWHERE YOU CAN GO TO ANYMORE?
CAN YOU SEE THERE’S NO ONE LEFT TO GUIDE YOU THROUGH THE SWAMP?
DO YOU FEEL YOU’RE TRAPPED INSIDE YOUR BODY, FOREVERMORE?
CAN YOU FEEL THAT? DID YOU FEEL THAT?

OH!
NOW I KNOW THERE’S NOWHERE I CAN GO TO ANYMORE
I CAN SEE THERE’S NO ONE LEFT TO GUIDE ME THROUGH THE SWAMP
NOW I KNOW I’M TRAPPED INSIDE MY BODY, FOREVERMORE
NOW I KNOW THAT! NOW I FEEL THAT!!
Track Name: Witness
FOLLOW THE PATH TO THE EDGE
CATHEDRAL BY THE SEA
HOLLOW, MY CHEST AS YOU LEAPT
GOD ABANDONED ME

AND NOW I’M FREE
FREE
AND NOW WE’RE BOTH SET FREE

SWALLOW, YOUR BREATH COMES
COMPRESSED
GATHERED ‘ROUND TO SEE
ARCHERS RAISE BOW UNTO THEE
TIED UP TO A TREE

AND I WATCHED IT ALL
I WITNESSED IT ALL
NOW YOU HAVE TO SEE
IT HAPPEN TO ME

AND I WATCHED IT ALL
I WITNESSED IT ALL
NOW YOU HAVE TO SEE
IT HAPPEN TO ME

AND I WATCHED IT ALL
I WITNESSED IT ALL
NOW YOU HAVE TO SEE
IT HAPPEN AGAIN TO ME

DOWN I GO
TRAPPED BELOW THE UNDERTOW
ROSE OF JERICHO

QUID PRO QUO
SWALLOWED BY THE LAVA FLOW
OH… NO! NO! NO!
Track Name: Eclipse
ECLIPSE THE DAY INTO THE NIGHT
FOREVER BANISH THE SUNLIGHT

SHOW ME WHAT IT MEANS TO LOVE
BREAK ME LIKE A BASEBALL GLOVE

I’M DYING TO BE EVIL
BUT I AM LIVING LIKE A SAINT
SEBASTIAN, GUIDE MY ARROW
AWAY FROM THE STRAIGHT AND NARROW

I KNOW A PLACE WHERE WE CAN GO
HAND INSIDE THE GARBAGE DISPOSAL
MY LOVE, UP AGAINST THE WALL
GOODBYE, I’M OVER THE FALLS

YOU, THE QUEEN; AND I, THE KNAVE
ONE WHITE ROSE UPON MY GRAVE

PLEASURE COMES A DECADE LATE
PRESS MY RIB CAGE, WATCH ME FAINT-

SEBASTIAN, GUIDE MY ARROW
AWAY FROM THE STRAIGHT AND NARROW

I KNOW A PLACE WHERE WE CAN GO
HAND INSIDE THE GARBAGE DISPOSAL
MY LOVE, UP AGAINST THE WALL
STUNG TO DEATH BY WASPS

I KNOW THAT SOMETHING BAD IS GONNA HAPPEN
I DON’T KNOW WHEN
BUT EVEN THINKING IT WILL SURELY MAKE IT HAPPEN!

OFFER ME AS SACRIFICE
BLEED MY THROAT ONTO THE ICE

I KNOW A PLACE WHERE WE CAN GO
HAND INSIDE THE GARBAGE DISPOSAL
MY LOVE, UP AGAINST THE WALL
GOODBYE, I’M OVER THE FALLS
Track Name: The Inferno
VIRGIL, TAKE ME BY THE HAND
DELIVERY ME FROM THIS CURSED LAND
VIRGIN, I TAKE IT ON THE CHIN
BLOW A KISS AND WATCH IT SCATTER OFF INTO THE WIND

O, I CIRCLE DOWN
O, EMBRACE THE CROWN

ANGEL, MEETING FACE TO FACE
LAY YOUR BROKEN WINGS UPON MY RESTING PLACE
BRUTUS, TAKE ME IN YOUR THROES
RAISE THE BLADE, BRAVE CASSIUS!
PARADISE IS CLOSED!

O, I CIRCLE DOWN
O, EMBRACE THE CROWN
O, I LOVE EVERYONE
TEAR ME LIMB FROM LIMB BENEATH THE RISING SUN

I CRANED MY NECK AROUND TO HEAR
A MESSAGED WHISPERED IN MY EAR
“IT’S HARD TO ‘BARGLE NAWDLE ZOUSS’
WITH ASHES IN YOUR MOUTH!”

O, I CIRCLE DOWN
O, EMBRACE THE CROWN
O, I LOVE EVERYONE
TEAR ME LIMB FROM LIMB BENEATH THE RISING SUN

GOD! I SEE THE FOLLY OF MY WAYS
GOING DOWN IN FLAMES
DON’T REPEAT MY NAME

GOD! I KNOW THE ERROR OF MY WAYS
THE WORLD FOR ME IS CHANGED
TEARING OUT MY FANGS

GOD! I FEEL I’VE WRONGED YOU ONCE AGAIN
SUBMIT TO YOUR TERRAIN
CRASHING DOWN THE PLANE
Track Name: I'm Not Warm
A LIFETIME WITHOUT BREATHING
FLOWERS WILL LINE MY PATH
A HAND TO BLOCK THE SUNLIGHT
FLOWERS WILT AS I PASS

I’M DYING
THERE’S NOTHING LEFT FOR ME
I’M SCREAMING
THERE’S NOWHERE LEFT TO BE
I’M CRYING
THERE’S NO ONE LEFT TO BLEED
DEMANDING
GIVE IN TO ME AGAIN!

I’M NOT WARM
I’M REBORN
I’M NOT WARM
ANYMORE…

A FEAR TOO REAL TO FACE IT
I EAT BUT CANNOT TASTE IT
I SNAP THE GOLDEN BRACELET
FEET IN CEMENT ENCASEMENT

I’M NOT WARM
I’M REBORN
I’M NOT WARM
ANYMORE…

THERE’S NOTHING LEFT FOR ME
THERE’S NOWHERE LEFT TO BE
THERE’S NO ONE LEFT TO BLEED
GIVE IN TO ME AGAIN!

THE CHAMBER FILLS WITH WHISPERS
INCENSE & ROMAN CANDLES
AS BLOOD DRIPS FROM YOUR FINGER
YOU USHER IN THE WINTER

I’M NOT WARM
I’M REBORN
I’M NOT WARM
AND NOW, I’M DEAD AND GONE…

REMEMBER ME, ALL ALONE
REMEMBER ME, ON MY THRONE
REMEMBER ME, AS I WAS
BATHED IN THE APPLAUSE

NOW WATCH ME, GO INTO THE NIGHT
AND NOW I TAKE MY FINAL FLIGHT
WATCH ME DIVE INTO THE DARK
WATCH ME TEAR THE WORLD APART!!
