Track Name: Evil Dead
I took my baby, on a midnight ride
To a cabin in the woods that came to life
They smashed in through the window
She disappeared into thin air
Just hang on tight and baby I’ll be there

And she said, baby baby come and save me from the evil dead
And she said, baby baby cuz the moon is turning red
Evil Dead

Bound in human flesh
Inked in human blood
The things that we regret
The things we do for love
Her touch was so familiar, but everything had changed
It feels like someone’s walking on my grave

And she said, baby baby come and save me from the evil dead
And she said, baby baby put a shovel through her head
Evil Dead

And she said, baby baby come and save me from the evil dead
And she said, baby baby put a chainsaw through her head
Sorry baby couldn’t save you from the Evil Dead
Track Name: Vampire Kiss
As the sky grows dark, a fallen star,
Is there to light your way.
The Devil knows what we are
And I thought I heard him say

Sleep all day. Party all night. Never grow old.
It’s fun to be one of us, but how far will you go?

Do you want to live forever?
Do you want to die like this?
One thing’s for sure, there’s only one cure for a fading reflection.
And I never could resist your vampire kiss.

Forever young, forever lost,
Children of the night.
Avert your eyes from the cross
And scream into the night

Sleep all day. Party all night. Never grow old.
It’s fun to be one of us, but how far will you go?

Do you want to live forever?
Do you want to die like this?
One thing’s for sure, there’s only one cure for a fading reflection.
And I never could resist your vampire kiss.

Sleep all day. Party all night. Never grow old.
It’s fun to be one of us, you just gotta let goooooo!

Do you want to live forever?
Do you want to die like this?
Now your left with a fading reflection.
And you never could resist my vampire kiss.
Track Name: Dead Stars Drive-In
The king of rocknroll sits on his throne
He died with his pants down all alone
Marilyn Monroe is lying on the floor
I guess she just couldn’t take it anymore
It’s not about who you are it’s who you know
Let’s go to the hop and go cat go

Let’s go to the Dead Stars, Dead Stars Drive-In
Let’s go to the horror show
Let’s go to the Dead Stars, Dead Stars Drive-In
They’ll never let you go
Oh no!

Bela Lugosi felt no pain
Dracula has poisoned the blood in his veins
Vampira never got what she deserved
Hollywood has turned its back on her

It’s not about who you are it’s who you know
Let’s go to the hop and go cat go

Let’s go to the Dead Stars, Dead Stars Drive-In
Let’s go to the horror show
Let’s go to the Dead Stars, Dead Stars Drive-In
They’ll never let you go
Let’s go!

Dead stars still burn

Welcome to the Dead Stars, Dead Stars Drive-In
Keep your eyes on the silver screen
Welcome to the Dead Stars, Dead Stars Drive-In
We love to hear you scream!

Let’s go to the Dead Stars, Dead Stars Drive-In
Let’s go to the horror show
Let’s go to the Dead Stars, Dead Stars Drive-In
They’ll never let you go
Track Name: Be Still my Heart
Walk with me
Into the morning sunlight
Into a world that's cold and no one ever
Makes it out alive
I always told you
I would find a way
We could make this last forever
And never fade away

Be still my heart, as silent as the grave
As violent as the ways, you tore me apart
And I watch seasons change
But these memories remain
Carved into the headstone of my heart

Under the midnight moonlight
I feel it changing me inside
This love so beautiful
Is only darkness in your eyes
Now I'm alone and standing still in time
Letting go of a fading dream
As the world around me dies
I watch it die

Be still my heart, as silent as the grave
As violent as the ways, you tore me apart
And I watch seasons change
But these memories forever will remain
Carved into the headstone of my heart

I took the step you wouldn't take
I made the move you wouldn't make
I wish someone would drive a stake
Into my God forsaken heart

As silent as the grave
As violent as the ways you tore me apart
I watch the seasons change
These memories forever will remain
Carved into the headstone of my heart
Track Name: Death Ray Vision
1, you know I’m havin fun with my death ray glasses on
2, here’s lookin at you, ya know you’re gonna be dead by dawn
3, I’ll see to it that you meet your sweet demise
4, Just take one look into these deadly eyes

I got Death Ray, Death Ray Vision!

5, you will not survive, and I can tell you’re almost there
6, as I transfix and bind you with my lethal stare
7, it feels like heaven, when you fall under my spell
8, I just can’t wait, to send you straight to hell

I got Death Ray, Death Ray Vision!

9, You look so fine when I light you up like Frankenstein
10, This is the end, charge me up and do it again.

I got Death Ray, Death Ray Vision!
Track Name: Steel Butterfly
Steel Butterfly

She walks through morning meadows, never forgetting her dreams of tomorrow
He lurks in silent shadows, never letting go of yesterday's sorrows.
He follows,
She falls his prey.

Scream if you will.
No one can hear you for miles around you.
You can sing if you want to.
I know a boy who is dying to hold you…
Dying to hold you…
Dying to hold you… down

She feels life slip away as it spirals down the drain in a psycho fashion
This love, burns like a blade, stab through the heart in a crime of passion
He follows,
She falls his prey.

Scream if you will.
No one can hear you for miles around you.
You can sing if you want to.
I know a boy who is dying to hold you…
Dying to hold you…
Dying to hold you… down
Down, down
I know a boy who is dying.

She walks alone.
He lurks behind.
Darkness unfolds.
Steel butterfly.

Scream if you will.
No one can hear you for miles around you.
You can sing if you want to.
I know a boy who is dying to hold you…
Dying to hold you…
Dying to hold you… down
Down, down
Dying to hold you...
Dying to hold you...
Dying to hold you... down.
Track Name: Twisted Fantasy (feat. Michale Graves)
Did you believe me when I said
I could give you a whole new life
Did you believe me when I said
I could take you away

We’ll be there in your nightmare
You belong, violently
We are your twisted, we are you twisted fantasy
You belong to us

Somehow the night would sing to her
She had to leave behind everything that she believes
We are the haunted, the deathless without light
We are the things that will bite

We’ll be there in your nightmare
You belong, violently
We are your twisted, we are you twisted fantasy
You belong to us

Cold features, tired mind, she hopes to ease her pain.
Walk with me a little while and cleanse our souls in rain
Rain rain go away into the black of night
And your pain becomes a memory
We are your twisted fantasy

We’ll be there in your nightmare
You belong, violently
We are your twisted, we are you twisted fantasy
You belong to us
Track Name: Blood Red
She's the kind of girl who makes you say “what have I done?”
She'll make you fall for her, she'll make you think you're the only one.
One night you’ll find that it was just a game, the damage is done.
And once she bites you’ll never be the same, you’d better run.
Boy I'm tellin you,

As soon as the sun goes down, and she’s in your head,
She'll be out painting the town blood red

I didn't mean to be so evil, what have I done?
I've gone and cut you up, I made you bleed, aren't we havin fun?
Girl I'm tellin’ you

As soon as the sun goes down, and our love is dead,
I'll be out painting the town blood red

As soon as the sun goes down, remember what I said.
We’ll be out painting the town blood red
Track Name: In Stitches
I'm bruised and I'm bleeding and demons have hold of my mind
This life that I'm leading I know I can't leave it behind
Cut, slashed, ripped up, yeah I’m barely alive
Sew me back up and laugh because

I’m in stitches, stitches, stiches. I’m in stitches, stitches, stiches

I went to the doctor to see what advice he could give
He said diagnosis psychosis with no time to live
Cut, slashed, ripped up, yeah I’m barely alive
Sew me back up and laugh because

I’m in stitches, stitches, stiches. I’m in stitches, stitches, stiches over you.

Cut, slashed ripped up I’ve been, I’ve been
Cut, slashed ripped up I’ve been, I’ve been
Cut, slashed ripped up I’ve been, I’ve been
Cut, slashed, ripped up, yeah I’m barely alive
Sew me back up and laugh with me

I’m in stitches, stitches, stiches. I’m in stitches, stitches, stiches.
Ow.
Track Name: Pins and Needles
I made a doll and it looks like you
It’s cute small and it smells just like you do
Let the ritual begin
Light a candle and stick another needle in

Pins & Needles,
That’s how I feel for you
Pins & Needles
I hope you feel it too

I remember when our eyes first met
You didn’t notice but I’ll never forget
Fingernails and hair from your brush
I’d say that its more than a crush

Pins & Needles,
That’s how I feel for you
Pins & Needles
I hope you feel it too
You’re gonna feel it too

Pale flesh drives me insane
Pressed up against the window pane
Hot breath. Whisper my name.
Can you feel it, pumpin through your veins.

Pins & Needles,
That’s how I feel for you
Pins & Needles
I hope you feel it too
Tonight you’re gonna feel it too

I made a doll and it looks like you
It’s cute small and it smells just like you do
Let the ritual begin
Light a candle and stick another needle in
Track Name: Train Wreck
All aboard, engine engine number nine
I’m comin down, so chop me up another line.
Livin fast, that's life out on the rail,
Bastard in a boxcar and I'm goin straight to hell,

Cuz I'm a wreck, wreck, I'm a train wreck

I hear that whistle blow, I’m pickin some speed,
Don’t tell me what I know. Just gimme what I need.
A guitar and a tommy gun yeah what did you expect?
I used to be more fun, but now I’m just a mess

Cuz I'm a wreck, wreck, I'm a train wreck

Full speed ahead I’m runnin off the track,
I got a one way ticket, and I’m never comin back,

Cuz I'm a wreck, wreck, I'm a train wreck
Track Name: War of the Worlds
When I woke up this morning
I never thought that my life would end this way
The radio gave out a warning
And don't you know I believe every word they say
Scientists observed explosions
Headied for us from a million miles away
Ain't it funny how this life can seem
Stranger than science-fiction

War, it's the war of the worlds

The president alerts the nation
He needs us now more than ever to remain
Faithful to the administration
And when I’m scared I’ll believe anything they say
Metal monsters with a heat ray
Fellow patriots are bursting into flames
Ain't it funny how this life can seem
Stranger than science-fiction

War, it's the war of the worlds

Metal monsters with a heat ray
Fellow patriots are bursting into flames
Ain't it funny how this life can seem
Stranger than science-fiction

War, it's the war of the worlds
