Dead Skin Mask

Track 5: Dead Skin Mask

LYRICS

How I've waited for you to come, I've been here all alone
Now that you've arrived please stay a while
And I promise I won't keep you long, I'll keep you forever

Graze the skin with my finger tips
The brush of dead cold flesh appease the means
Provoking images, delicate features so smooth
A pleasant fragrance in the light of the moon

Dance with the dead in my dreams
Listen to their hallowed screams
The dead have taken my soul
Temptation's lost all control

Simple smiles elude psychotic eyes
Lose all mind control rationale declines
Empty eyes enslave the creations
Of placid faces and lifeless pageants

In the depths of a mind insane
Fantasy and reality are the same

Graze the skin with my finger tips
The brush of dead warm flesh pacifies the means
Incised members ornaments on my being
Adulating the skin before me

Simple smiles elude psychotic eyes
Lose all mind control rationale declines
Empty eyes enslave the creations
Of placid faces and lifeless pageants

Dance with the dead in my dreams
(Hello, hello, Mr. Gein)
Listen to their hollowed screams
(Mr. Gein)

The dead have taken my soul
(Lemme out of here, Mr. Gein)
Temptation's lost all control
(Mr. Gein, I don't wanna play anymore, Mr. Gein)

Dance with the dead in my dreams
(Mr. Gein, it's not any fun anymore)
Listen to their hollowed screams
(I don't want to play anymore, Mr. Gein)

The dead have taken my soul
(Mr. Gein, lemme out of here Mr. Gein)
Temptation's lost all control
(Lemme out, lemme out)

Reviews for this Track

The live version of DSM is sooooooo much better. When I first heard that girl's voice towards the end I totally freaked, which I guess was the idea of putting her in there, lol. I dunno, it just really caught me off guard.
