Track Name: Good Enough To Eat
I am king of all I see and
you are looking mighty
good enough to eat, my sweet

You are my only vice
if you stay much longer I may

I may have to keep you at arm's
length it will take every bit of my will and
strength because I am king of all I see and
you are looking mighty
good enough to eat, my sweet

don't run away
no don't let your face
wear the mask
of someone from my past

I have tried to change my life
but you tempt me in ways unforeseen

I can't help if I am caught between
a false reality and a real life dream

so you see you cannot leave
I fear what I would do should I

should I let you let out to roam
and maybe go back home
and find your family and tell them about me
I'd only have to find you in the end
and drag you back because you're my only friend

don't run away
no don't let your face
wear the mask
of someone from my past


I am king of all I see and
you are looking mighty
good enough to eat, my sweet
and now it's time to wine and dine
and beg for me to spare your life
Track Name: I'd Like To See You
I'd like to see you
I'd like to see you
I'd like to see you
in my dreams someday

I'd like to see you
I'd like to see you
I'd like to see you
in the month of May

when we'd be married
and you'd be carrying
your bouquet

I'd like to see you
I'd like to see you
I'd like to see you
each and every day

I'd like to see you
I'd like to see you
I'd like to see you
say that you will stay

with me always
and you will never want to be
like the others girls who treat me
like they'd rather spend their time
tearing at my spine
and messing with my mind
and point at me and laugh at me
and now you see you're leaving me
no choice but to assume the same for you

I'd like to see you
I'd like to see you
I'd like to see you
my pretty pretty prey

I'd like to see you
I'd like to see you
I'd like to see you
just try to run away

I'd like to see you
I'd like to see you
I'd like to see you
I'd like to see you
Track Name: Whiskers
a woman asked me if I would not mind
watching her cat after she left the world behind
I said that I had allergies
then she died
Track Name: Blood Manor
As a boy
growing up
in the old midwest
I discovered a place
that had been abandoned
by the living, anyway


the house upon the hill
where all lies still
is more than it may seem
it's a bad dream

if you go at night
you just may find
skeletons and ghosts
will be your hosts at

Blood! M-m-m-manor!
Blood! M-m-m-manor!


if you go
you can forget about
any hope of ever coming out

even if you think
you're just passing through
those ghoulish monsters
are going to get you


Careful as you walk
Try not to talk
They can hear you breathe
they're jealous of the living

stay within the light
they exist in the night
if they catch you alone
you'll find your new home is


Blood! M-m-m-manor!
Blood! M-m-m-manor!


Grown up now
I know it couldn't be real
but something inside
continues to fear

I can still see
when I'm asleep
those ghoulish monsters
coming to get me


if you want to look cool
for all the rich ghouls
make Blood Manor your home
it's more than awesome it's

Blood! M-m-m-manor!
Blood! M-m-m-manor!
Track Name: Don't Want To Die
She held the knob
of the door
She asked if I would
want to risk more

but I don't want to die
no I don't want to die today

she held a box
in her hand
She asked would I
want to take a chance

but I don't want to die
no I don't want to die

So please take your wheel
and take your game
please take it all back
from where you came

but I don't want to die
no I don't want to die today

an envelope
in front of me
holds the answers
that I seek

but I don't want to die
no I don't want to die today
Track Name: Fear The Kind Gentleman
I am a house
- a shelter
for the wretched souls
of this, my generation

Bring me your tired,
your poor,
your downtrodden
and I shall make them pure

Always fear the kind gentleman
perfect on the surface, but inside
he wants you dead.

Talk to him, laugh with him,
but never,
ever,
get inside his head.
Track Name: Floating Above You
I'm floating above you
I'm floating above you
I can't see you
but I know you're there, somewhere

I guess somebody
didn't love you
couldn't see you for what you were
And now nobody
can speak of you
without wondering where you are

I'm floating above you
I'm floating above you
I can't see you
but I know you're there, somewhere

I guess these waters
wouldn't hold you
would have swept you far away
It doesn't matter
I know I dropped you
off near this patch of sea that day

I'm floating above you
I'm floating above you
I can't see you
but I know you're there, somewhere
Track Name: The Inkman
There goes the Inkman
all covered in Indian
I wonder what she sees in him
The Inkman

What do you think he does all day?
Some believe he's writing plays
'Hiding something' others say
The Inkman

I tell you what happened one night
Sitting here some friends and I
saw the Inkman passing by
and he was carrying...

But I'm not really one to gossip
There could be a reason for it
I sure it was perfectly innocent
but it did seem very strange...

Here comes the Inkman
Act like you don't notice him

The Inkman

That was close he almost saw
Let's adjourn until another dawn
and then I'll tell you all about
The Inkman
Track Name: Halloween
Every year on Halloween
it comes apart at the seams
it's my mind but I don't know
how to control it or make it go

AWAY

Maybe if I try to hide
away from others and stay inside
my house and let in no guests
maybe then I can get some rest

NO WAY

Don't try to visit me that night
I'll be sure to give you such a fright
but I'm not sure exactly what I'll do
maybe I will make a stew out of you


So I suggest you travel far away
or invest in heavy artillery
I feel fine now but I know that soon
my voice will get rhaspy and I'll bark at the

MOON
Track Name: It's A Spider
Look look look look look

It's a spider
and he's crawling on you

It's a spider
don't get excited
I want to be near you too

Look look look look look

There's a spy there
and she's spying on you

There's a spy there
do not fear
I want to look at you too
take pictures on microfilm too
Track Name: Not Really A Stalker
you and me
and nobody else
can see that we
are so perfect
together
but it's true
so why must you fight it?
just be delighted
that I love you

in my dream
and soon reality
we're married
just like in the novel
I'm writing
all about our love
and you should not mind
that I've built a shrine
'cause I'm not crazy, oh no

I'm not really
a stalker per se
I just collect
things that you may
resemble even
in the smallest way
like the same
clothing brand names
or pick friends with
similar traits
like hair colour, age,
geographic heritage


Oh did you like the sweater
that I knitted or the letters
that I wrote every day last year?
Track Name: RIP John Maxwell
A friend said to me
if you want to be happy
just put this in your arm

indicating
the needle in his hand
stained black with tar

I knew what to say
so I took it off his hands
and tossed it in a can

he said I'd thrown his life away
he called me an ass
then dived into the trash

Oh why do we reach so high
that we can no longer see from our eyes?

In Alphabet City
all of the streets
twist me around

Conspiring
to make me lose my way
to drive me to the ground

Oh why do we reach so high
that we can no longer see from our eyes?

My friend said to me
if you haven't touched death
then you're not alive

He was dead in a week
you know it hardly seems
that a year's gone by
Track Name: 6-6-06
Welcome to Hell
I hope you enjoy your stay
Kindly leave your body at the door
It's time to play

I drink the blood of the living
I bathe in the blood of the dead
No God could ever forgive me
Angels fear where I tread

You can run
but I'll still get your hide
I'm going to find what you have inside
and I won't be satisfied until your blood dries

And in the end the blood I take
is equal to the blood you make
