"American Gothic" (2015)

American Gothic lyrics - Creature Feature

If there's nothing in the darkness
Then why do you lie awake?
Something in the shadows
Is keeping you from sleep
What are you afraid of?
Hiding in the night
Haunting figures appear
In the corner of your eye

Is death waiting to lash out
A ghost behind the breeze
A devil in the corn field
Or the beast among the trees
All these wretched raving ravens
All harbingers of your doom
Is the black cat crossing your path?
A prelude to your tomb

The sun falls like a guillotine
The dark comes alive with unsavory beings
Lock your door
Run and hide
Hold your breath
And you just might survive the night
Your safety's false
Your logic skewed
Now your complacent
Point of view
It'll be the true death of you

Are there creaks in the floorboards
When you're alone in your room?
Are the footsteps in the attic
With each rising of the moon
Strange sounds in the distance
Whatever could they be?
You're powerless to the deadly
Foul things lurking unseen

The sun falls like a guillotine
The dark comes alive with unsavory beings
Lock your door
And Run and hide
And Hold your breath
And you just might survive the night
Your safety's false
Your logic skewed
Now your complacent
Point of view
It'll be the true death of you

Chattering teeth
And Rattling bones
Out in the blackness
Your nightmares grow
Dreadful thoughts
Make your blood run cold
The witching hour
Has taken hold
Deep in the bleak
Recess of your soul
Is where the terror makes its home

If there's nothing in the darkness
Then why do you lie awake?
Something in the shadows
Is keeping you from sleep?

The Netherworld lyrics - Creature Feature

There exists a secret place
Heralded by death embrace
Soon you'll learn what's life after death
Soon after your corpse has been dressed
You can only come around
As you're buried six feet down
When your body functions have ceased
The maggots begin to feast

You'll be the life of the party
Way down at the cemetery

Far below the hollowed ground
Far from the safe lights of town
At home amongst the beatles and worms
Where the creepy crawlies will squirm
Unfortunately it isn't heaven
Fortunately it's not quite hell
It's a place of legend and myth
Where the reaper has gonna amiss

You'll be the life of the party
Way down at the cemetery

You will soon depart from the heart in your chest
Lalalalalalalalalalala
For its incessant beating will eventually end
Lalalalalalalalalalala
You wont need the flood of warm blood in your veins
Lalalalalalalalalalala
For every single crimson drop will surely be drained
Lalalalalalalalalalala

All your worthy posessions
And all your measly Convictions
Will be useless after the day you die
You wont need them on the other side
Now as your pulse subsides
Time has come to say your goodbyes

Saint Peter doesn't call your name
But your body does not drown in flames
You'll exist beyond creation
No hope for reincarnation
Once they carve out your headstone
and you're nothing left but a bag of bones
You'll recieve an invitation
to the life between the stations

You'll be the life of the party
Way down at the cemetery

A casket holds your lifeless form
That chunk of meat is no longer warm
Before all your insides begin to curd
You'll transcend into an Ether
Every lost soul migrates here
As the real world sheds a tear
A spirit not fit for ascension
A soul not fit for redemption

You'll be the life of the party
Way down at the cemetery

You will soon depart from the heart in your chest
Lalalalalalalalalalala
For its incessant beating will eventually end
Lalalalalalalalalalala
You wont need the flood of warm blood in your veins
Lalalalalalalalalalala
For every single crimson drop will surely be drained
Lalalalalalalalalalala

All your worthy posessions
And all your measly Convictions
Will be useless after the day you die
You wont need them on the other side
Now as your pulse subsides
Time has come to say your goodbyes

Well now, it seems you've been cursed to wander
Into the pitch black Yonder
You cannot be saved
Now your body lies in a cold, cold grave!

Well now, it seems you're off the beaten path
An exiled outcast
What lies ahead? Face the facts, son
You are, DEAD, DEAD, DEAD!

Well now, it seems you've come to a realization
That you're an abomination
So don't be sad, life after death isn't Bad, Bad, Bad!

Well now, I really must be on my way
There's other folks who've gone astray
It never ends, go forth and haunt
Make some enemies!...or friends!

You will soon depart from the heart in your chest
Lalalalalalalalalalala
For its incessant beating will eventually end
Lalalalalalalalalalala
You wont need the flood of warm blood in your veins
Lalalalalalalalalalala
For every single crimson drop will surely be drained
Lalalalalalalalalalala

All your worthy posessions
And all your measly Convictions
Will be useless after the day you die
You wont need them on the other side
Now as your pulse subsides
Time has come to say your goodbyes

It wants you! It gets you!
Firmly in its grip!
Sit back, don't fight!
Go along for the trip
Prepare to be scared
Right out of your skin
Welcome to the Netherworld where your new life begins!

Nearly Departed lyrics - Creature Feature

How dark was the night
When they were given new life
On the eve of our impending doom
The buried and forgotten
Molding and rotten
Began to stir in their tombs
Here in our darkest of hours
Prepare for the coming dread

Mindless walking things
What horror do they bring
Now their eternal peace is denied
The dearly departed
Are back where they started
And everything's far from alright

They have woken to devour
And this world will run red
The Earth has now grown sour
And it's spitting out the dead

Be warned, be still
Now you can hear them stirring
Clawing at the ceilings of their graves
They're here, they're dead
They're evil and they're hungry
Flesh and sinew and bone have all gone astray
No pulse, no brains
Now you can hear them digging
Corpses transformed into feral beasts
No soul, no hope
No conscience in their bloodlust
They have only come here for one thing
And that's to feast

The hordes of decay
Are crawling this way
And their pouring out into the streets
Lifeless hollow shells
Are escaping their cells
And their dying for something to eat

Here in our darkest of hours
Prepare for the coming dread
An army of death
With their fetid breath
And their skin dangling from their bones
There is no escape
From the most ghastly of fate
For this is how we must atone

They have woken to devour
And this world will run red
The Earth has now grown sour
And it's spitting out the dead

Be warned, be still
Now you hear them stirring
Clawing at the ceilings of their graves
They're here, they're dead
They're evil and they're hungry
Flesh and sinew and bone has all gone astray
No pulse, no brains
Now you can hear them digging
Corpses transformed into feral beasts
No soul, no hope
No conscience in their bloodlust
They have only come here for one thing
And that's to feast

The dead are awake
There's no escape
Tombs asunder
Released from slumber
Peaceful silence
Turned to violence
Will this affliction
Be our downfall
Reanimation, desecration
Death in no longer
The be all end all
Insurrection, resurrection
And out of the mouth of Hades
They have crawled

Be warned, be still
Now you hear them stirring
Clawing at the ceilings of their graves
They're here, they're dead
They're evil and they're hungry
Flesh and sinew and bone has all gone astray
No pulse, no brains
Now you can hear them digging
Corpses transformed into feral beasts
No soul, no hope
No conscience in their bloodlust
They have only come here for one thing
And that's to feast

Mad House lyrics - Creature Feature

Where did all this begin, my malicious tale
So rife with loathing, despair, and revenge
Picture this, a home could grow aware
Would this explain why I now live in fear

Sometimes the razor's dull and doesn't cut enough
Sometimes it definitely cuts too much

All of this aggression and fury inside me
Has seeped into the bones of this old house
Year by year, the rage was building up
And my short fuse has turned against me now

Sometimes the razor's dull and doesn't cut enough
Sometimes it definitely cuts too much
Sometimes the anger doesn't always manifest
Sometimes the anger's like a hornet's nest

I don't know how much I can take
I simply must get out of this mad house
Nowhere to hide, I can't escape
I really think it's gunning for me now
You can't imagine how I ache to toss a match
And burn the whole thing down
I pray in time it's blown away
To nothing but a big hole in the ground

Would I get an answer if these walls could talk
Would they explain why they now want me dead
Was it me? Am I a wicked man?
Was this monster born of my own two hands?

Some days it's tame, doesn't spill too much blood
Some days it's crazed and can never get enough
Some days it's still like the calm before a storm
Some days I wish I was never born

I don't know how much I can take
I simply must get out of this mad house
Nowhere to hide, I can't escape
I really think it's gunning for me now
You can't imagine how I ache to toss a match
And burn the whole thing down
I pray in time it's blown away
To nothing but a big hole in the ground

It's grown hungry, rather famished
Smelling blood and turning savage
Now it's learning, forming habits
Sentient and wreaking havoc
It is growing, gaining traction
Can't give up, I must take action
It is scheming, gaining reason
Making plans, becoming brazen
It is living, in existence
Cognizant without a conscience
Shaping tactics without lenience
Setting traps to restore balance now

Get me out of this mad house
I'll die in this mad house

Here There Be Witches lyrics - Creature Feature

Here there be witches on the edge of town
Cast them in water to see if they drown
Cleanse them with fire to burn them down
Bury their bones in hallowed ground.

Here there be witches on the edge of town,
Cast them in water to see if they drown
Cleanse them with fire to burn them down
Bury their bones in hallowed ground.
Here there be witches on the edge of town

Here there be witches on the edge of town
Can't you hear their cries?
Press them with stones to see if they lie
Sever their heads and gouge out their eyes
Recite your prayers in the dead of night.
Here there be witches on the edge of town
Can't you hear their cries?

Demons on the prowl we must make a stand
Black souled devil spawn inhabit this land
The unpure of heart will fall by your hand.
Here there be witches, save our
souls have been lost and the panic grows.
spells cast over blood and broken bones,
An evil stronger than we've ever known.
Here there be witches and all must die.

Here there be witches and they must be slain,
Cut of their flesh and they feel no pain.
Shackle their hands with sanctified chains,
Snip out their tongues before they speak your name
Here there be witches and they must be slain

Demons on the prowl we must make a stand
Black souled devil spawn inhabit this land
The unpure of heart will fall by your hand.
Here there be witches, save our
souls have been lost and the panic grows.
spells cast over blood and broken bones,
An evil stronger than we've ever known.
Here there be witches and all must die.

Unholy hexes, dark incantations
Our days are numbered, just sacrificial lambs
Depraved and corrupted agents of darkness
Chosen by the black mark of the beast.
Archaic volumes, forbidden writing
Blood ceremonies, Sermons for the damned
This curse must be lifted before the full moon
or we're all just meat for the feast

Demons on the prowl we must make a stand
Black souled devil spawn inhabit this land
The unpure of heart will fall by your hand.
Here there be witches, save our
souls have been lost and the panic grows.
spells cast over blood and broken bones,
An evil stronger than we've ever known.
Here there be witches and all must die.


Dem Bones lyrics - Creature Feature

Please don't be alarmed
I got the heart of a child
It's actually one of many
That I've slowly compiled
You have looks to die for
And a brain to match
I promise to remove it all
Without a scratch
Dem Bones!
Lest we forget
About your ravishing eyes
I'd love to see them both
Immaculately excised!
Now whatcha got hiding
Under all that meat?
I don't believe
That beauty's only skin deep

We all amass ghosts of our past
I display mine under glass
Perfection is fleeting
Commence the bleeding
And now I must propose
We Dig Dem Bones!

I bid you welcome, my guest
I have something to get off my chest
I am a fan of some degree of curiosities
Now now! Don't you fret
I have a spot for all of my guests
On the mantel or the bookcase
I can always make some space
All the beauty of out days
A shame its got to wither away
You'll live on, rest assured
And forever be preserved

From here on in
You shall never age
Formaldahyde
Will keep those effects at bay
A piece of my collection
Always on display
An object to admire
Like a lost monet
Everybody shuns their skeleton
And hides it from all the fun
Elbow grease and soap
Will remove your pulp
And it will polish like a stone
When I scrub Dem Bones!

I bid you welcome, my guest
I have something to get off my chest
I am a fan of some degree of curiosities
Now now! Don't you fret
I have a spot for all of my guests
On the mantel or the bookcase
I can always make some space
All the beauty of out days
A shame its got to wither away
You'll live on, rest assured
And forever be preserved

Well is there something wrong with me?
I prefer my friends deceased
Disassembled and put on display
Deep inside the hallowed halls
Your bones will decorate the walls
Safe from inevitable decay
You'll soon agree that life is better
Without all that pesky leather
Skin is overrated, can't you see?
Would you prefer to rot and mold?
In a grave that's damp and cold
Or join my esteemed menagerie
Or you could choose to just grow old
Journey into the unknown
Spend your last breath all alone
Death waiting to lash out
Or will you become history
Or a sight for all to see
You must believe when I decree
Its what's inside that counts

We all amass ghosts of our past
I display mine under glass
Perfection is fleeting
Commence the bleeding
And now I must propose
We Dig Dem Bones!
Bones! Bones! Bones!
Scrub Dem Bones!

Haunted lyrics - Creature Feature

Noises down in the basement
Voices up in the attic
Figures prowling the garden
Shadows lurking the parlor
Awake long after midnight
Objects move in the darkness
Haunted by nightly wailings
Harassed by something unclean

Do you have a problem
With the warm-blooded
Infected by the non-dead?
It's an infestation
Of troublesome mortals
Warm and perishable!

When you're no longer flesh-and-bone
The living still won't leave you alone
Just because your body's grown cold
Doesn't mean they can't possess your home
You had hoped for eternal peace
But the living still plague the deceased

House guests are falling asleep
Breathers: hostile and nasty
Creatures know something dreadful
Bleeders selfish and vile

Can you feel the presence
Swirling in the mire
Waiting to expire?
Can you feel the bound souls
Swirling in the ether
Growing like a fever?

When you're no longer flesh-and-bone
The living still won't leave you alone
Just because your body's grown cold
Doesn't mean they can't possess your home
You had hoped for eternal peace
But the living still plague the deceased

When you're no longer flesh-and-bone
The living still won't leave you alone
Just because your body's grown cold
Doesn't mean they can't possess your home
You had hoped for eternal peace
But the living still plague the deceased

Spill Your Guts lyrics - Creature Feature

We're frail
So frail and weak
Our body's frail
We're all just meat
So easily scarred
So easily beat
It doesn't take much
For us to spring a leak
It doesn't take much
To perish in your sleep
We're soft
Soft and smooth
Just beef and sauce
Perfect for stew
So easily squashed
So easily bruised
It doesn't take much
To strip us to the bone
It doesn't take much
Work to make us croak

We're all marching in the same parade
Biding our time in this silly masquerade
We're all headed steadfast to the grave
With all the fuss, we'll soon be dust
And then you'll spill your guts!
Will you burn out?
Or will you fade away?
Will you die young?
Or within old age
We're all dying
To make it out unscathed
With all the fuss, we'll soon be dust
And soon you'll spill your guts!

We're doomed
From the start
We're all bruised
Did I mentioned scarred?
So easily strewn
So easily marked
It doesn't take much
To tear us apart
It doesn't take much
Force to stop our hearts
We're [?]
Prone to leak
[?] facades
Rought with decease
So easily clawed
So easily freed
It doesn't take much
Stress to make us crack
It doesn't take much
Strength to break our backs

We're all marching in the same parade
Biding our time in this silly masquerade
We're all headed [?] to the grave
With all the fuss, we'll soon be dust
And then you'll spill your guts!
Will you burn out?
Or will you fade away?
Will you die young?
Or within old age
We're all dying
To make it out unscathed
Why all the fuss? we'll soon be dust
And soon you'll spill your guts!

A knife in the back from a friend
Or a bump on the head?
A ructured appendix
Or maybe a virus instead
A clot in your veins
Or the voice of a snake in the grass
A chest full of blood clots
Or maybe a slip in the bath

We're all marching in the same parade
Biding our time in this silly masquerade
We're all headed [?] to the grave
With all the fuss, we'll soon be dust
And then you'll spill your guts!
Will you burn out?
Or will you fade away?
Will you die young?
Or wither in old age
We're all dying
To make it out unscathed
Why all the fuss? we'll soon be dust
And soon you'll spill your guts!

Wake The Dead lyrics - Creature Feature

Dressed in black, Join the pack
Through the dark we have embarked
Endless night, shunned by light
Condemned to earth we will have rebirth

Seances and ceremonies
Behind closed doors
Abandoned words
And ancient symbols covers the floor
Singing songs
And burning candles
In the Graveyard
We must eradicate
This vicious killer at large
Its not too late to stop this
As we journey into darkness
Where Gods fear to tred
The time has come to be renewed
And now before the night is through
We'll wake the dead!

Dead inside, breathe new life!
Free your bones from the catacombs
Take control of your soul
The heavens weep as you rise from sleep

Seances and ceremonies
Behind closed doors
Abandoned words
And ancient symbols covers the floor
Singing songs
And burning candles
In the Graveyard
We must eradicate
This vicious killer at large
Its far too late to stop this
As we journey into darkness
Where Gods fear to tred
The time has come to be renewed
And now before the night is through
We'll wake the dead!

Myth stone and alchemy
Wormwood and witchery
Coffin nails and effigys
Clairvoyance and prophecies
Graveyard dust and sorcery
Step inside and face the scene
The flame is quickly growing dim
The air is quickly growing thin
Something stirs from deep within
Underneath your skin
The earth begins to crack and grow
The wind begins to howl and moan
And now you are not alone
The ending is here

Its far too late to stop this
As we journey into darkness
Where Gods fear to tred
The time has come to be renewed
And now before the night is through
We'll wake the dead!

A Feast For The Worms lyrics - Creature Feature

My heart is filled with nails and broken glass
The world will celebrate when I'm gone at last
Revere the end of my years
For soon I will be dead
For soon I will be dead

All the angels in heaven
Curse my name
All the demons down in hell
Will stoke the flames
So strike up the band
Strike up the matches
Pour kerosene all over my casket
The world is safe
Now here in my absence
A cancer removed into the tomb I go

My soul is made of rot and razor blades
Raise the day that I'm lowered in my grave
Revel for the devil knows I'm on my way
Knows I'm on my way

All the angels in heaven
Curse my name
All the demons down in hell
Will stoke the flames
So strike up the band
Strike up the matches
Pour kerosene all over my casket
The world is safe
Now here in my absence
A cancer removed into the tomb I go

I was born bad
And I will die bad
But in your heart
I live on
I made a mark
On this world they can't cut out

All the angels in heaven
Curse my name
All the demons down in hell
Will stoke the flames
So strike up the band
Strike up the matches
Pour kerosene all over my casket
The world is safe
Now here in my absence
A cancer removed into the tomb I go

"It Was A Dark And Stormy Night..." (2011)

It Was A Dark And Stormy Night... lyrics - Creature Feature

These hands
They shake
I swear I must be cursed
This brain
It aches
Any moment it might burst

Save your soul
Don't stop, they're gaining on you
Heads will roll
Don't quit, they're gonna' get you

This pulse
It speeds
My nerves have all been fried
This heart
It beats
Forever out of time

Save your soul
Don't stop, they're gaining on you
Heads will roll
Don't quit, they're gonna' get you

Fade in to an empty road
Rain is pouring on the scene
Lightning strikes across the sky
Pray this is a hellish dream

Apparitions manifest
Poltergeists and entities
Unseen malignant threats
They are catching up to me

It was a dark and stormy night
Pins and needles down your spine

Shadows are alive with shapes
Nameless beasts of long lost lore
The forest stirs, ready to pounce
Feel the darkness at your door

Ethereal revenants
Phantasms and deities
Bloodthirsty spawns of hell
Try to get their claws in me

It was a dark and stormy night
Pins and needles down your spine

Dead eyes
They stare
From out beyond the trees
The sound
It stings
Like a nest of angry bees

Save your soul
Don't stop, they're gaining on you
Heads will roll
Don't quit, they're gonna' get you

Bared teeth
They gleam
Approaching from behind
Those claws
Dig deep
The results are most unkind

Save your soul
Don't stop, they're gaining on you
Heads will roll
Don't quit, they're gonna' get you

Fade in to an empty road
Rain is pouring on the scene
Lightning strikes across the sky
Pray this is a hellish dream

Apparitions manifest
Poltergeists and entities
Unseen malignant threats
They are catching up to me

It was a dark and stormy night
Pins and needles down your spine

Shadows are alive with shapes
Nameless beasts of long lost lore
The forest stirs, ready to pounce
Feel the darkness at your door

Ethereal revenants
Phantasms and deities
Bloodthirsty spawns of hell
Try to get their claws in me

It was a dark and stormy night
Pins and needles down your spine

Be careful or you soon shall find
That this life has long passed you by
Rigor mortis it seems
Has crept up your sleeves
And dried up your quivering mind

Be cautious or you soon shall find
The angels have long left your side
Your body's grown cold
Flesh drips from bones
And memory buried in time

Do not
Let those
Fiends
Take you alive

Fade in to an empty road
Rain is pouring on the scene
Lightning strikes across the sky
Pray this is a hellish dream

Apparitions manifest
Poltergeists and entities
Unseen malignant threats
They are catching up to me

It was a dark and stormy night
Pins and needles down your spine

Shadows are alive with shapes
Nameless beasts of long lost lore
The forest stirs, ready to pounce
Feel the darkness at your door

Ethereal revenants
Phantasms and deities
Bloodthirsty spawns of hell
Try to get their claws in me

It was a dark and stormy night
Pins and needles down your spine

Dr. Sawbones lyrics - Creature Feature

There goes Dr. Sawbones
Creeping down the alleyway
Looking for a victim
The game of chance is underway
He is biding his time
Fleeting through the cabarets
Searching for a subject
To bring about their Judgement Day

There goes Dr. Sawbones
Slipping through the underbrush
Peering through your windows
Conspiring for your blood
He is stalking the night
Just as happy as can be
Waltzing through the graveyard
Praying for an entity

[Chorus:]
There is this longing for blood
That I am trying to quench
There is this yearning for pain
That is forever entrenched
There is this spot on my soul
And it will never come clean
There is this flaw in my brain
That is far from serene

There goes Dr. Sawbones
Readying his instruments
Making sure they're razor sharp
They have dark deeds to dispense

He is raising the stakes
Broadening his dossier
In this game of cat and mouse
He will take your breath away

There goes Dr. Sawbones

Strolling through the dirty streets
Judging which soul to confront
He is haunting the town
Drifting through the corridors
Disappearing in the fog
Watch your back lest you be gored

[Chorus]

[Chorus]

Oh look, here comes the doctor now
Dressed to the nines and on the prowl
An attaché case in his hands and dark thoughts of devious plans


He's the perfect picture
Of a charismatic gentleman
Magnetic and debonair
Chivalrous and spirited

But once he's got you in his sights
That's when the delirium ignites
The madness quickly takes control
And villainy engulfs his soul

Pray you never cross his path
Steal a glance and incite his wrath
His dashing demeanour gives away and depravity comes out to play

The House Of Myth lyrics - Creature Feature

There stands a dark monument
Born of unfortunate events
A house of myth rumored near
A lost road leading north of here

I tried to warn you, I swear I did

Tenanted by fear and gloom
Despair calls out from every room
Walls that drip with hopelessness
Filled with an air of malevolence

I tried to warn you, I swear I did

Abandon hope
All who enter here
The ones who ignored
Simply disappeared

They're gonna have to
Scrape you off the walls
That's even if they
Find your body at all

They're gonna have to
Scrape you off the walls
That's even if they
Find your body at all

All that you will find, is hell waiting inside

A blackness lives inside this place
An evil you'll learn to embrace
It will lure and calm your doubt
Eat you alive and spit you out

I tried to warn you, I swear I did

Abandon hope
All who enter here
The ones who ignored
Simply disappeared

They're gonna have to
Scrape you off the walls
That's even if they
Find your body at all

They're gonna have to
Scrape you off the walls
That's even if they
Find your body at all

All that you will find, is hell waiting inside

Inside of this place
Death will not come quickly

It won't leave a trace
Death will not come quickly

It is far too late
Death will not come quickly

You have sealed your fate
Death will not come quickly

All that you will find, is hell waiting inside
