Track Name: Sally Dear
Sally comes home and she is all alone
Or so it seems
It's just as well
It's been a long day, a long day
But what's this groaning at the door?
A horde of voices, indeterminate,
But yet they call her name, they seem to say...

Sally dear, Sally dear, open the door
I'm here to offer you something that you haven't been offered before...
I have the cure

Consider it a way
To skip the suffering and pain
Lord knows you've seen your share
From this malady...
I'm afraid you have a terminal illness and it's called life

So, Sally, run upstairs and lock the windows and doors
It won't help you if your husband and your kids are already cured
Which you've ignored

Let us in, I guarantee
The treatment will be quick and painful
And affordable...
I intend to cure the terminal illness that you call life
Track Name: Occam's Razor
When I slit my wrists with Occam's razor,
sometimes the world just seems so bittersweet
But I can't lie to myself
Oh no, I slit my wrists with Occam's razor
How could a higher power let this bloodshed in the streets?

All alone
Shacked up in a bomb shelter
Still stocked up on supplies
From the days when we thought the world would end
With a mushroom-shaped cloud and a mustachioed man
With his finger on the giant red button

It would set the world aflame!
Now the world's been set aflame!

And they said, don't you know
They've been saying it for years
The end is coming, yeah, the end is near
So then rejoice in the destruction
The fulfillment of your prophecies
As twisted and mangled as one of the horde

Repent, ye sinners, one and all
And see where that'll leave you
See if it prevents your fall
You say, "pray for a better day"
But those days are gone
In this world of death and decay
If there's no tomorrow, then live for today

When I slit my wrists with Occam's razor,
sometimes the world just seems so bittersweet
But I can't lie to myself
Oh no, I slit my wrists with Occam's razor
Waiting for guidance will be mankind's defeat

All alone, still alone
I wonder, "what will I become?"
Nothing to learn, nothing to gain
There's nothing to be done
Maybe it's fate that I'll be the last to die
The last bastion of hope, the last sane one alive

Am I the only sane one left alive?
The only one alive?

And they said, repeated
Like a broken record in my head
That girl is trouble and you're better off alone instead
And they were right, or so I thought
'Cause now I'm left needing
Someone to love, someone, anyone at all

Repent, ye sinners, one and all
And see where that'll leave you
See if it prevents your fall
You say, "pray for a better day"
But those days are gone
In this world of death and decay
If there's no tomorrow, then live for today

Live for today!
Live for today!
Live for today!
Live for today!

When I slit my wrists with Occam's razor,
sometimes the world just seems so bittersweet
But I can't lie to myself
Oh no, I slit my wrists with Occam's razor
And the simple solution is admitting defeat
Track Name: Encounter
Father, won't you tell me what life is like?
What life is like outside these walls?
This concrete cage where we reside
Cannot contain your sorrow

Sorrow, it weighs heavy on your brow
How is that the case when you say that we're safe now?

I'll sneak out when you're asleep
Distract the guard that's at the hatch
Pop out my head to take a peek
And see what horrors I can catch

I know I'm ready for it all
If I don't know what we're fighting, then how can I feel safe at all?

Hordes of people line the streets
With tattered limbs and shattered minds
It's such a gruesome sight to see
I think one's calling out to me

Son, take your one chance to be free
And together we can make your living friends just like you and me

This feeling? What can it mean?
If only this horrid sight could somehow be unseen...
Track Name: Necrophilia
When she left I was cold and dead inside
Until the day I came to realize
That that's the way my perfect mate should be
Just a lump of soulless flesh to fuck around with me

She don't talk, but she sure moan
It ain't love, but I'll never be alone again

Necrophilia
Necrophilia
Necrophilia
Necrophilia

Don't judge me 'til you've heard what I've to tell
The living make your life a living hell
They're lousy, they're obnoxious, liars too
And when they're finished with the romance, they're finished with you

She wants my brains, but I want more
You filthy, rotting corpse, baby I'm yours, you whore

Necrophilia
Necrophilia
Necrophilia
Necrophilia

To be safe, I made sure you were bound and gagged
And the remnants of your family, I made sure to fill with lead
I didn't have to worry 'bout protection
Except from all the maggots in your flesh

She wants my brains, but I want more
You filthy, rotting corpse, baby I'm yours, you whore

Necrophilia
Necrophilia

Necrophilia

Hot zombie love!
No strings attached!
I'm horny, you're undead
Babe, we're a perfect match!

Hot zombie love!
No strings attached!
Don't you know I want to
Fuck a zombie in the ass?

Necrophilia

And in the end, the love you take
Is equal to the holes you make

...I'm on a highway to hell
