lyrics

The prettier they are
The uglier they behave
Make you feel alive
Inside an early grave

Clawing at the ceiling
Dead ringer for a rat in a cage
Spinning wheel is stealing
The promises you’ve made

One shot
One kill
The safety off
The sights aligned
Wait till you see
The whites of her eyes

A puncture of the skin
Grants the greatest gift of life
And all that lies within returns to dust in hollow eyes

All too obvious without the daylight
Metamorphosis into the reviled
Hunting, unburying, blessing, crossing and cursing
And sharpening holy silver shaped by fire.

One shot
One kill
The safety off
The sights aligned
Wait till you see
The whites of her eyes


It’s not the last time we’ll come looking for you
It’s not the last time we’ll come looking for you
By this time tomorrow, you’re gonna be climbing the walls and hiding under the floor
Praying maybe by god you'll get lucky
And if we find you at all we’ll show you some kind of
Mercy
