Go ahead and let Riggs take you to the haunted house of his mind in "A Spinning Song", then let him take you to the haunted desert of "Forgot I Was Alive". But by the time he's bludgeoning you with the haunted circus on "Wall of Death" it's time to drop the black velvet curtains.
Talented, individual, and somewhat freaky, Dax Riggs is like the smart kid in high school that wears all black all of the time. You totally could have been best friends with him had he only stopped breaking off your conversations to obsess over J. O'Barr lithographs and Samurai ethics. Demon Tied To A Chair In My Brain Demon tied to a chair in my brain Blackbird a tappin' on the window pane Sick man smilin' at a stray dog in the rain Demon tied to a chair in my brain Demon tied to a chair in my brain Lovers burnin' ghostly draggin' their chains Met eyes from the window Of that midnight train Demon tied to a chair in my brain Demon tied to a chair in my brain Demon tied to a chair in my brain Mad shriekin' woman weepin' my name My skeleton is meltin' My soul is in flames Demon tied to a chair in my brain 2.
Night Is The Notion Night is the notion Everything sleeps beneath We are the explosion In which lies the dream Maybe I will, maybe I won't Maybe it dies or maybe baby it don't Night is the notion So I count the stars In my dark cup and forget this all Lord I can't believe The earth ain't swallowing us yet The earth ain't swallowing us yet We are the explosion We are the explosion Night is the notion We are the explosion We are the explosion We are the explosion 4. Radiation Blues Bury this and the rhythm of breath, there is only death Maybe you're dead and ya just don't know A shadow dressed only in sorrow Tomorrow might not exist and ya should've been dead Should've been dead like ten times over Like ten times over Should've been dead like ten times over By the hand of your lover By the side of the river should've been dead Bury this song and the rhythm of breath There is only death There is only death, only death These radiation blues sister Gonna make me true Movin' through the bones of you These radiation blues Movin', movin', movin', movin' 5.
The Terrors Of Nightlife I laid all I own at the devil's feet And I have placed a rose between the angel's teeth Night lay beside me, night lay beside me I wish you could hear what I hear when I'm out there The stars all seem to burn And scream into the atmosphere Night lay beside me, night lay beside me May grief fall away like leaves from the trees May grief fall away like leaves from the trees And night lay beside me, only night lay beside me 6.
When heaven drops and the grave opens up My head's in hell on holiday An evening star follows me through the day When heaven drops and the grave opens up 7. Truth In The Dark Nothing below or above We sing of only blood or love Nothing below or above We sing of only blood or love We sing of only blood or love Can I only tell the truth in the dark?
Do I only exist in your heart? Today there is no sun Maybe there never was Headless queen of gutter doom Has locked inside a rented room The phantom of the climbing vine Buried in sunshine Invert it but you know it's divine We sing of only blood or love We sing of only blood or love 8.
Ouroboros The wilderness and all its thorns Tangled up around my horns I ain't got time to die tonight Climbing the stars Into the midnight hours The serpent is eating itself My heart is on fire With its death and desire I ain't got time to die Climbing the stars Into the midnight hours The serpent is eating itself The serpent is eating itself The serpent is eating itself Tonight I ain't got time to die 9.
Living Is Suicide Along the highway And the graveyard lines Have mercy on the devil He's a friend of mine Sometimes Dancing this phantom up And down my spine Have mercy on the devil He's a friend of mine Sometimes sometimes sometimes We are living this suicide If god looked upon us It would surely leave us blind Surely leave us blind This living is suicide Living is suicide Forgot I Was Alive They took they drugs and left You stranded down in Mexico Half-formed wandering the desert You had blood on your soul But what did ya know I been told blood makes the grass grow Baby what do ya know You got to let it roll But what would I know?
