Lyrics: Hello, My Carcass

With botched decisions
Unknown consequences
Now fire leads the way
To an end I’ll never see

Sold my soul for a chance
Just to see her pretty face
A bloodied, painful vision
Of the life I left behind

And when I drink, I drink for her
And when I bleed, I bleed for you
And when I kill, I kill for hell
And when you pray, you pray for me——

I’m headed for the bottom
‘Cause that’s where I belong

Am I dead or alive
Nightmares are getting worse
The sands are running out
Farewell humanity

I’m scarred from head to toe
My eyes a horrid glow
In a flash of red I leave
Chains of death deliver me

And when I drink, I drink for her
And when I bleed, I bleed for you
And when I kill, I kill for hell
And when you pray, you pray for me——

I’m headed for the bottom
‘Cause that’s where I belong

Denied damnation
Eclipsed, Angel’s light
Faced down redemption
Burdened by the plight

I have buried a god
and killed the devil
There’s no one left to serve
The earth’s ready to burn
