The Fat Vegetarian Absolutely love it! My favorite track really was tied between Going Down and Blasphemy, (but Blasphemy has already been getting some love), but even then, its tough to say, each song is different and fantastic in it's own way.

If this album was a dude his thews would be BANGIN'!

Very excited for what's next! I've got that Pitch Black Fever! Favorite track: Going Down.

Ra is burning in the sky Osiris cut into pie Fourteen pieces hidden away Isis knew where they lay Called to the black head dog Fetch them bones in the sea of fog I think his manhood swam away With this map we could find it today CURSES! COBRAS! KILLER! CROCODILES! SPIDERS! QUICKSAND! JACKALS! HORROR! 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 That Mummy's alive! Yeah! That Mummy's alive! Oh no! That Mummy's alive! Our intrepid explorers Enter the mysterious pyramid of Osiris Having survived perilous dangers beyond measure Now the treasure is before them Reaching greedily for the ancient dusty crotch of the mummy It rises from its tomb To slowly choke the living shit out of them all! Tutankhamun was a boy His little curse just a toy What we seek is bigger than this A golden phallus is what we wish All the men that have died All the nights Isis has cried And all the odds say we wont survive This mummy’s pecker will revive Danger! Daggers! Deadly! Scorpions! Scarabs! Beatles! Torches! Horror!

Full moon is out tonight You and me it feels so right Don't you wanna be with me Don't you wanna be with me I wanna growl I wanna bite I wanna prowl I wanna fight Don't you wanna be like me Don't you wanna be like me Let 'em run Let em hide Because the fury is strung so tight You and I were meant to be Howling with the fiend in me Stroke the fur and gnaw the bone No more rules and no more lies No more work for you and I On the hunt and feel the breeze Bring em all to their knees The rage is ready The teeth are bared The hackles raised We don't care Humanity you see What does it mean to me The bloody splatters The claws that tear The muzzles snapping The lust we share Well... You and I were meant to be Howling with the fiend in me Stroke the fur and gnaw the bone Cuz wolves like us have no home... Cuz wolves like us have no home... Cuz wolves like us have no home... The moon is rising We don't care It's getting hairy We like it rare You made a pact with me Now it's time, time to feed You and I were meant to be Howling with the fiend in me Stroke the fur and gnaw the bone Wolves like us they have no home

The dance floor has a pulse I feel the ebb and flow my prey I glide on silent wings to your heart My gaze will drag you in This night is lust and my bite is like fire! It's like fire! Burning Yeah its like fire! Call me sire! Bitefire! Inside these mirrored walls You see the face I give to you You'll never know the truth in your heart I turn to smoke my prey before the dawn And my bite is like fire! It's like fire! Burning Yeah its like fire! Call me sire! Bitefire! My thirst is the worst When I see you When I see you My thirst is worse When I see you When I see you My thirst is worse When I see you When I see you My thirst is worse When I see you When I see you FIRE!!!

Up from the slime and sludge A primal urge and grudge I think we need to stay awake tonight The water's still and deep I heard it never sleeps Unblinking Remorseless fiend Captain! Captain! Captain! We’re going down Captain! It’s waiting for us to sink tonight Captain! Captain! Captain! We’re going down We made a big mistake Too much to undertake We could not bear the strain To hold the beast The hull is ripped to shreds Our captain drinks and sings Of lost loves and wretched things Captain! Captain! Captain! We’re going down Captain! It’s waiting for us to sink tonight Captain! Captain! Captain! We’re going down The bow is gone And the captain laughs The water seeps in slowly And we hang our heads and cry All the bullets and bashing In the hold we can hear it thrashing To no avail our prize has come With claws Dragging us into the abyss Captain! Captain! Captain! Wake up! Captain! Captain! Captain! Wake up! Captain! Can you hear us now The water is cold and And we’re gonna drown Captain! Captain! Captain! He’s drunk again Captain It ripping up your guts Tonight Captain! Captain! Captain! I'm gonna drown

All of the graves are empty And all of the tombs have been robbed We gather tonight for the feast Making our way through the mud and fog Calling from our tunnels deep The hunger draws us from our sleep The day is gone, yes we creep All night long you'll hear us meep Ghoul Fever! Ghoul Fever! Yeah! Ghoul Fever! Dig the sound get down underground Ghoul Fever! Ghoul Fever! Yeah! Ghoul Fever! Gnaw the bone gonna make your body groan Lock up the crypt we'll kick in the door Open the vault death is our lord Kissing the Night as we gourge away Stygian depths the light has no place Calling from our tunnels deep The hunger draws us from our sleep The day is gone yes we creep All night long you'll hear us meep Darting between ancient tombstones Smashing the bones on walls Dancing on top of the mausoleum Mouth fulls of flesh fill our filthy maws Guts 'n grave Is what we crave Guts 'n grave Is what we crave Guts 'n grave Is what we crave Guts 'n grave Is what we crave

You can’t stop the events written in stone Watered down love that’s all we’ve ever known Life unfolds and blows away All these years of decadence and decay Chitter chatter in the night Clicking monsters are they right The acts are theirs but no one cares The past resides in mental lairs A haunting cry is in the past But it will always ever last Now the tears of future years Flood the gates and start the gears You can’t go home No you can't go home You can’t go home No you can't go home Give in and let it go Let it pour regret it all tomorrow No one cares that we’ve moved away Words on stone, reduced to cliche

The mind plays tricks on you sometimes It's better to let yourself unwind Peering into nature unkind When you make a man you're god for a time Now we play this game And we race for rhyme I've lost everything to you But what's my crime? What's my crime? When you make a monster You can't rewind Can't rewind When you make a monster Nothing's fine Nothing's fine On your heels a god and he's lost his mind Lost his mind Wraith Damnation Revelation I will see your end

Mortar brick blood and stone Aren't you glad that I'm always home Shuttered barred never known Where I read my dusty tomes I bet you'd like to know When I sleep and where I roam but the simple fact yes it still remains You can never leave And I will never change Here in my castle the walls are insane With a half eaten finger in a rusty cage I know you'd like to sleep I know you'd like to go But the bars are thick and the Wolves will roam Look into my eyes Look into my eyes Look into my eyes Look into my eyes Counting cobwebs Gasping Moans Spiders prey on your Head it's prone Muttered chants Growls and groans Every step leads To my throne The sun is swallowed The moon is a slit My eyes are silver And the candles lit Oh no thrall won't you Come my way Won't hear my words Don't you disobey These walls are mine These walls are mine These walls are mine These walls are mine Here in the castle it all remains Sealed to the last of the last refrain No one comes No one goes For the shunned Are always home I'm always home! I'm always home! I'm always home! I'm always home!

She's a mess She a creature She's the star of my dark dark feature Black and white Full of fright Please just screw her head on right She's my bride She's my bride This loneliness I can't hide Come on doc Get a grip Make it fit I gotta have her tonight She's my bride She's my bride This solitude I can't thrive Come on doc Make it quick I'm love sick I gotta have her tonight You betta get her together She's a freak She's a screecher She's my silver screen misfeature Full of spite Sew tonight Do it right or were gonna have a fight Guarantee She's for me Animate Or you will cease Light the flame You're to blame Doc dont you play no games Let the lightning strike!

You can tell by the way his skin falls off He’s from the grave you know you can smell the rot All you cats you better, you better clear the path Or he’ll burn you down underground with his disco wrath! Bones will break, baby, heads will roll He’s a vengeful ghoul getting down with an undead soul It’s all right darling, it’s okay This bastards dead, this bastard’s dead, disco’s back And there’s hell to pay Can't stop this bastard He's dancing faster Can't stop what you can't kill Can't stop what you can't kill Can't stop what you can't kill Can't stop what you can't kill Can't stop what you can't kill Can't stop what you can't kill Can't stop what you can't kill Can't stop what you can't kill Smoky mirrors all filled with dread He’s moving like Travolta, he’s moving like the living dead There’s no escape baby, not a chance Abhorrent bastard in blood stained manilla pants

There's something in the basement There's something in the bed There's something in my closet I hope its good 'n dead There's something in the shadows There's something in the sheets There's something in the attic I hope it likes treats There's something in the cellar There's something in the streets There's something in the night yeah I hope it likes me There's something in your bones And the burning leaves There something in the air On All Hallows' Eve Cauldrons bubble higher Witches call the devil's fire Black cats hissing at the pyre Vampire bites you in the mire There's needles in the candy There's strangers in your bed There's humming down the hall There's a ghost in your head There's a full moon howling And it's drooling dread There's a gang of ghouls that wanna be fed Trick or trick Lick my cloven feet Give us something good to eat Give us something good to eat On All Hallows' Eve On All Hallows' Eve On All Hallows' Eve On All Hallows' Eve Get your sweets and summon things Flying high on demon wings Orange and black The dead are back Orange and black The dead are back Orange and black The dead are back Orange and black The dead are back We're waiting in the patch We're lurking in the dark We're carving up the faces We're hiding in the park We're waiting for the One That comes this night With the Jack O Lantern grin And a gruesome bite So sincere so sincere My dear You best hold my hand I do fear You will lose your breath tonight Strangled to death by the pumpkin vines Blood Bloody Ding Dong Witch Say you're not home But I hear ya bitch Turn out the lights That's what we like We're comin in and were bringin' knives
