Annihilator - Criteria For A Black Widow

Artist: Annihilator
Release: Criteria For A Black Widow


1. Bloodbath

I’m dreaming of the lights, coming from behind
The clouded’s getting clearer, it’s closer all the time
Darker, taller, bigger, all blackness under wing
Reaping holy profits from the fear of absolutely nothing

Bloodbath
No one here will miss
The stench of your abyss
Bloodbath
The blood is never yours
Whores, your followers

I hear the people coming
I hear them down the hall, hell
They’re banging at my door, what do they got to sell
Everything moves slowly, I feel trapped and powerless
My body weighs a thousand pounds and I cannot confess

The door is crashing open, it’s ripping from the wall
No matter what I do I seem to do nothing at all
The ligths are getting brighter and they won’t go away
The voice is getting louder and there’s no need to pray

I think the world is stumbling, I think I feel it shake
There’s something in the room
But there’s nothing left to break
The blackness getting bigger than the serpent’s universe
Ruthless angels lie and steal and spread the catholic curse

2. Back To The Palace

My brain’s on fire, my brain’s on drugs, call up the guard
And fill my cup, I feel so lost, I’m so alone, here in my room
Come fill me up, the door is locked
You can’t get out, said the voice of malice
Here I am, trapped inside, under glass, the fun palace

Creepy crawlers, sidewalk maulers, have you met our little Alice
Cobweb corners, pre-paid mourners, won’t you come back to the palace

Creepy crawlers, sidewalk maulers, have you met our little Alice
Cobweb corners, pre-paid mourners, won’t you come back to the palace

Creepy crawlers, sidewalk maulers, have you met our little Alice
Cobweb corners, pre-paid mourners, won’t you come back to the palace

When I look through the glass, I see them dancing in the dark
There’s one now, oh can’t you see the eyes of fire
Watch out for sparks
What in hell is it they want and can they get behind my wall
Can you hear, hear it creep, coming closer, hear it call

Creepy crawlers, sidewalk maulers, have you met our little Alice
Cobweb corners, pre-paid mourners, welcome back to the palace

I’m out the door and I’m heading for the wall
Deep into the night, please god, don’t let me fall
I hear the bark of the dogs, gotta make my choices
Search lights getting brighter
Please don’t let them take my voices away
The pictures of, deep in my mind, the memories that can kill

I lick the wounds, they can’t be cleansed because they
Won’t, won’t hold still and I scream in agony
I feel the flesh tearing off me, oh help me please
It’s hide and seek, this secret’s found in therapy

Creepy crawlers, sidewalk maulers, have you met our little Alice
Cobweb corners, pre-paid mourners, you are now back in the palace

3. Nothing Left

Is this what you wanted, what you killed yourself to be
And this is where you are now, what you didn’t want to see
Crawling from the rubble of the lives you pushed aside
You didn’t take the trouble to have them crucified

It’s wanting, it’s needing
It’s strength is fuckin’ breathing
Good god there’s nothing I can do
It’s time to start feeding, can even taste the bleeding
Good god there’s nothing left to do

Never close my eyes except to fall asleep
Stumbling through lies piled six feet deep
Steal a ticket and get on the ride again
You never will give up and you will never give in

Never close my eyes except to fall asleep
Stumbling through lies piled six feet deep
Faster and faster, the carousel drives
Slicing to the bone, like razor sharp knives

5. Criteria For A Black Widow

Can you touch it
Can you hold it
Can you love it
Can you need it
Can you use it
Can you taste it
Can you screw it

Thank god it’ll never be me
Black Widow

6. Punctured

Forgive me nothing, I meant it all
And I was, laughing the closer you crawled
You’re coming closer, the warmth of your skin
I’m taking my time, wanna watch it begin

To puncture the skin, to puncture your soul
To puncture the dream because reality’s cold
I’ll blacken the night and black out the sun
We’ll blacken the world and then we’ll see what’s begun
Punctured

I told you that I was lying again and you believed it
You believed you could win
And you believed it
You believed you could win

Well I punctured the skin, I punctured the soul
I punctured the dream because I’m in control
I’ll blacken the night, I’ll blacken the sun
We’ll blacken the world and then we’ll see what’s begun

I’ll take my time and break your mind
Your forehead pressed into the ground
I’ll watch you kneel, I’ll hear you squeal
You’re lost and never found

I punctured the skin, I punctured the soul
I punctured the dream because I’m out of control
I’ll blacken the night and black out the sun
I’ll blacken the world and then we’ll see what’s begun
Blacken the world and then we’ll see just what’s begun

7. Loving The Sinner

Abuse me, confuse me
I’m beggin’ for a kind of release
Adultery and the misery
They’re not the kind of things you can police
Sinking to an all time low

I’m drowning with a smack in the face
A torture with a slow decay
The devil’s wearing leather and lace
Why did all the lovin turn to anger

How did everything just fade away
Get off of your ass
It’s time to get some fuckin class

Well everybody fucks up
But enough’s enough
Depression, the obsession
I’m trying not to get out of bed
Bullet proof, the invincible

Can someone tell me whether I’m dead
I’m like a zombie, like a vegetable
Just withering away in the ground
I took a deep screw from a thin wrench

Pain queen you look good in your crown
Charging, like a battering ram
Nobody’s ever gettin in my way
I’ll do you like a beast from hell
And then we’ll see what you say

Well you can rip me, you can tear me
So go ahead and say what you must
‘Cause you’re a liar, you’re a bad child
Farewell and you can live in my dust

8. Double Dare

Across the room, see your eyes watching me, charming lies
Watch you squirm, see the need, it’s time to go, time to leave
I dare you to come any closer, I dare you to cross this line
And I dare you to be different, and I dare you to try
I dare you to get any closer, I dare you to break this line
And I dare you to be different, I double dare you to try

In my room, all alone, far from help, close to home
Lying there, kill the light
In the dark, realise
I dare you to come any closer, I dare you to cross this line
And I dare you to be different, I double dare you to try

No one can see you, no one will know
I’m gonna get you, I’m gonna blow
Come join the madness, come join the fool
Enter my dungeon, slip in the pool

What is it like to be usual and how does it feel to be the only one
I try to pick the pieces up from my life
But no one will ever take them away
No one can take them away
No one will ever take them away, no one

Burning skin, flesh is hot
Slowly fades, who was caught
Double dare, will you come, will I stay, are you the one
I dare you to come closer, I dare you to cross this line
And I dare you to be different, I dare you to try
I dare you to get closer, I dare you to cross this line
And I dare you to be different, I double dare you to try
I dare you to get closer, I dare you to cross my line
I dare you to be different, come on and give it a try
I double dare you to try

9. Sonic Homicide

Blasting and ripping it apart
Intense pain numbing to a pinch
Tearing the fabric of the soul
Killing is inch by inch

Listen to the words of the sick fuck
C’mon and drop to the knees
You want compliance, you want control
Devastation done with ease
Sonic homicide a torture
That’s burning through the ears

Sonic homicide beware the killing is for real
Stone cold, a victim of the freeze
Ice pic stabbing through the heart
Airwaves, as deadly as can be

The damage has been done right from the start
Slipping into madness, can’t deny the blame
Can’t make out reality, can’t deny the shame
Years and years of torment, life just hanging on
It’s time to change the coarse, time to see the dawn

Call up the power, and bring on the faith
Bring on the demons, this match is made
I’ll face the anger and I’ll raise my head
To fight this beast and wake the dead

Stone cold, a victim of the freeze
Ice pic stabbing through the heart
Airwaves, as deadly as can be
The damage has been done right from the start

10. Mending
