Take me down
To where the baptized drown

So they say
(Surface dweller, shallow swimmer)

Let's lick my wound

So they say I killed a man
So they say I took his head
So they say he was a scourge
In all the world are his children

The best thing
They ever did
In this life
Was let me live

Digging swiftly out of hell
Madness helps me save myself
Crooked spoons on every wall
Genocide lines the halls
Ten guage needles and a prayer
Smearing sin everywhere

What
Else could you need?
You've taken everything
What
Else could you need?
You've taken everything
(Surface dweller, shallow swimmer)

Let's lick my wound

We feed until we're engorged
Let them sleep
I need some more
Nooses made of human hair
Bodies falling from thin air

We preach and speak forbidden truth
This is it, we're through with you
Choosing to lose my mind
Rape the blade and call it wine

Crooked spoons on every wall
Genocide lines the halls
Ten guage needles and a prayer
Smearing sin everywhere

What
Else could you need?
You've taken everything
What
Else could you need?
You've taken everything
(Surface dweller, shallow swimmer)

Take me where the baptized drown

I sleep too deep for you to wake me
I sleep too deep for you to wake me (up)
(I) sleep too deep for you
To ever wake me

My lips I kiss with tiny stiches

What
Else could you need?
You've taken everything
What
Else could you need?
You've taken everything

The venom that slips
From your lips
The tiny lie
Shining in your eyes
Pain in my veins
Shallow
Hollow
Incarcerated
Soul

I sleep too deep for you to wake me up!
