about

Originally recorded by Athens, GA's own "Ghost the Robot" this song imagines the inner life of a serial murderer, possessed by appetites he neither controls nor understands

lyrics

Your eyes look blank and empty
My blood still stains your face
and I'll take these phony flowers
'cause they brighten up the place,
I'll just leave you there
no one cares
but me

All those who know,
never can tell
who goes to heaven
and who goes to hell so
shine up your shoes
smooth your lapel
wait for the party and sniff for the smell of
sweet desperation
the habit's perfume
I've spotted my victim
just outside the room
my vision turns red as my world turns black
and I swim through the stars as I lie on my back
some say desire
and evil's the same
but I'm just the watcher
the hunger's to blame

Ahhh, pull me out
Ahhh, pull me out
pull me out

Pull me out of the water
'cause I'm too weak to swim
and you'll leave me dead by drowning
if you know just where I've been
you'll just leave me there
no one cares
but
me
