Death of a Mime - Track Listing/Lyrics

Bring it on

I know what you did last summer
when you swear that you had never been there before
felt like an extra in a slasher film
and it's true I've never been the same since

and I've never felt like this before
thoughts are spilling out onto the floor
and I just found a note stuck to my door
it read "'be back at eight with my chainsaw"

standing a few feet before me
stood a man with a hatchet stating my time had come
that's when my instinct took control of me
and so I whooped his ass and made the statutory quick pun

tell me what it's all about
why they never leave the town
it's true you'll never keep a good man down
even if he's buried six feet in the ground

and I've never felt like this before
brains are spilling out onto my floor
but I just bought a shotgun from the store
so I say bring it on, bring it on

seen some hide and run
why not bring it on?

seen it all before
madman at your door
seen some hide and run
why not bring it on?

you think that's something to be scared of?
white masks are nothing to be scared of
I'll give you something to be scared of

seen it all before
madman at your door
seen some hide and run
why not bring it on?

Teeth

salivation
tombstone white
jaundiced lockjaw
feel the bite

anesthetic always worked
but now things seem different

fortune smiles upon me
with teeth so bright
maybe the gums that bind them
let forth the light

fleshy flake
saliva drought
drill the base
and pull me out

It's so fucking typical
cracked enamel starts to show

fortune smiles upon me
with teeth so bright
maybe the gums that bind them
let forth the light

dentures stained by anger
rotting away
now that my gums are bleeding
false teeth await

Death of a mime

There is a place that I call home
it's where the villains live while the heroes fall
there is a world within silent walls
where you are black and white and the greasepaint calls

before you judge my life
before you reach inside
we're all fucking mute

death of a mime
death of a mime
passing on without a sound
death of a mime
death of a mime
just another silent clown

come learn the ways of this silent art
send in the clowns my friend show's about to start
there is a face of cocaine white
where frozen teardrops fall while the mouth still smiles
there is a room that only I can see
there must be someway out of this mute disease

white gloves are all I have
to make you understand
are you listening?

death of a mime
death of a mime
passing on without a sound
death of a mime
death of a mime
just another silent clown

come untie me

can't you hear me?

it's the loudest silence you've heard

Happy Ending

Puppets waifs and strays
in the sun we played
with your hand in mine
leave young thoughts behind

it's gonna be fine
wait and see
there's a happy ending

try not to forget
flesh marionette
soft sweet smell of skin
smile of porcelain

it's gonna be fine
wait and see
there's a happy ending

strain to see that laughing child
recognise me now?

it's gonna be fine
wait and see
there's a happy ending

happy fucking ending

happy ending
