Prologue/I Know Where You Live

Prologue:
"We found his diary today. He wrote in great detail, how cleverly he planned
all of the killings. How precisely he executed his insane fantasies. It was
all so perfect except for one thing...
(one thing, one thing, one thing, one thing)"

----------

I like to watch from my car
I like to make sure you don't go far
I know the hours you sleep
Don't approve of the company that you keep

While you're in work, I'm alone
In your room, on your bed and you'll never know
I like to go through your things
The touch, the smell, the joy it brings

I know where you live
I know where you hide
I know what keeps you alive
I know where you go
I know who you know
I know where you're spending your nights

I don't like the guy in the suit
Or that street punk in the combat boots [Lyric Booklet says "Or that Romeo in e cowboy boots"]
You may not see them again
I showed them a quick but painful end

I know where you live
I know where you hide
I know what keeps you alive
I know where you go
I know who you know
I know where you're spending your nights

I see, I feel, I watch over you
I see, I feel, I watch over you

I want to know what you say
I need to hear the prayers you pray
I like to play with your hair
When you sleep and you dream and there's no one there

I know where you live
I know where you hide
I know what keeps you alive
I know where you go
I know who you know
I know where your spending your nights

I see, I feel, I watch over you
I see, I feel, I watch over you
I see, I feel, I watch over you
I see, I feel, I watch over you
I see, I feel, I watch over you
I see, I feel, I watch over you

Vengeance Is Mine

They hated every part of me
Expect me to forget it
They tried so hard to bury me
But I survived it every time

Convicted of every crime
Silently doing time
But when I get outta here
I wanna make it clear

Vengeance is mine
Vengeance is mine, mine, mine
To forgive is divine
But vengeance is mine, mine, mine

They tortured every inch of me
Then expect me to forget it
They thought that they would finish me
But I pull through every time

Punish me everyday
But I'll never break
Hold on to all your fears
'cause when I get outta here

Vengeance is mine
Vengeance is mine, mine, mine
To forgive is divine
But vengeance is mine, mine, mine

(Vengeance, Vengeance, Vengeance, Vengeance)

What I want
(Vengeance, Vengeance, Vengeance, Vengeance)

What I need
(Vengeance, Vengeance, Vengeance, Vengeance, Vengeance, Vengeance,
Vengeance)

What I want, What I need, What I want, What I need
(Vengeance, Vengeance, Vengeance, Vengeance, Vengeance, Vengeance,
Vengeance)
What I want, What I need, What I want, What I need
(Vengeance, Vengeance, Vengeance, Vengeance, Vengeance, Vengeance,
Vengeance)
(Vengeance, Vengeance, Vengeance, Vengeance, Vengeance... Vengeance)

Vengeance is mine, mine, mine
To forgive is divine
Not as rewarding I find
Because vengeance is mine...

Vengeance is mine, mine, mine
Vengeance is mine
Vengeance is mine, mine, mine, mine, mine, mine, mine, mine

Wake The Dead

How many more will cross my path
How many more must die
I never wonder where they come from
I never wonder why
You don't know what's going on inside of me
You don't wanna know what's running through my mind, yeah yeah yeah
(Shake.... Shake...)

You wake up every morning thinking everything's okay
But if by chance you walk my way you just may seal your fate
Give me a redhead, give me a brunette, send a blonde to me
When I unwind I'm colour blind, they're all the same to me
(Shake.... Shake...)

Shake my head, wake the dead
Shake my head, wake the dead
Run for your life, you better run for your life
Run for your life, you gotta run for your life

I just do the things I do, it's natural to me
There's no rhyme or reason for my odd insanity
You don't know what's going on inside of me
You don't wanna know what's going through my mind, yeah yeah yeah

Shake my head, wake the dead
Shake my head, wake the dead
Shake my head, wake the dead
Shake my head, wake the dead
Run for your life you better run for your life
Run for your life you gotta run for your life
(you gotta.... you gotta.... you gotta.... you gotta....
you gotta.... wake up wake up, you gotta.... wake up wake up,
wake up wake up, wake up wake up, wake up wake up,
wake up wake up, wake up wake up, wake up wake up,
wake up wake up)

Catch Me If You Can

She was not the first, and he won't be my last
My hunger and my thirst, My brilliant future and my ugly past
They'll all be here with me, 'till my web is spun
My blessing and my curse, there'll be no rest until my work is done

Catch me, catch me if you can
Catch me, catch me when you can
I can't control myself

You won't have a clue of what is coming next
What I'm gonna do, surely classical in it's effect
Which limb will I choose, which one gets sawed in half
Which leg would you lose to an arachnophobic psychopath

Catch me, catch me if you can
I wrestled with the devil and I'll do it again
Catch me, catch me when you can
I can't control myself
Catch me, catch me if you can
I'm scheming with the demons and I'll do it again
Catch me, catch me when you can
I can't control myself
I can't control myself

Catch me, catch me if you can
Catch me, catch me when you can
Catch me, catch me if you can
I'm scheming with the demons and I'll do it again
Catch me, catch me when you can
I can't control myself
I just can't control myself
I'm scheming with the demons and I'll do it again
I wrestled with the devil and I'd do it again
I'm scheming with the demons and I'll do it again

(In Touch With) Your Feminine Side

You got a taste on your face
You got some scare in your hair
You got some rock in your walk
And some hips in your slip

Stop running
Stop hiding
Just wanna get in touch with your feminine side

You look so cool, you look so sweet
C'mon baby, c'mon over baby
It's your world, but it's my street
C'mon baby, c'mon over baby

You got stars on your scars
You got surprise in your eyes
You put some bite in the night
You got some sin on your skin

Stop running
Stop hiding
Just wanna get in touch with your feminine side

You look so cool, you look so sweet
C'mon baby, c'mon over baby
It's your world, but it's my street
C'mon baby, c'mon over baby

Stop running
Stop hiding
Just wanna get in touch with your feminine, touch with your feminine side

You look so cool, you look so sweet
C'mon baby, c'mon over baby (inside)
It's your world, but it's my street
C'mon baby, c'mon over baby (inside)
You look so cool, you look so sweet
C'mon baby, c'mon over baby (inside)
It's your world, but it's my street
C'mon baby, c'mon over baby (inside)
Woo woo.. woo woo.. woo woo
Woo woo.. woo woo.. woo woo

Wrapped In Silk

Where did I see those eyes
Why do I feel your heat
How do I know your name
When did we ever meet
Did you just pass me by
When did I smell your scent
I followed you from behind
Everywhere you went

(My, My, My, My, My)

You should be wrapped in silk
You should be bathed in white
You should be wrapped in silk
I'll make that dream come true tonight
Yes tonight
Yes tonight
Yes tonight
Tonight's the night

How did you see my face
Where could you feel the knife
Was it your final thought
The moment I took your life
And just when your heartbeat failed
Were you just filled with fright
Were you in dark despair
Did you see the holy light?

(My, My, My, My, My)

You should be wrapped in silk
You should be bathed in white
You should be wrapped in silk
I'll make that dream come true tonight
Wrapped in silk
Dressed in white
Bathed in milk
I'll make that dream come true tonight
Yes tonight
Yes tonight
Tonight's the night
I'll turn off your lights (turn off your lights)

Where did you get that skin
I've never seen such teeth
It covers up all your sin
I wonder what's underneath

Did you just pass me by
When did I smell your scent
I followed you from behind
Everywhere you went

(My, My, My, My, My)

You should be wrapped in silk
You should be bathed in white
You should be wrapped in silk
I'll make that dream come true tonight
Wrapped in silk
Dressed in white
Bathed in milk
I'll make that dream come true tonight
Yes tonight
Yes tonight
Tonight's the night
I'll turn off your lights (turn off your lights)

Killed By Love

I've got more to lose, more to lose than you
Cause I'm the only one in love between us two
I know that I've been struck by lightning from above
Cause I've been killed by love

I got a longer fall, a longer fall to take
Cause I'm a bigger fool with a bigger heart to break
You pushed me way to far, a push became a shove
And I was killed by love

Drop me off in a crowded lonely city
Everybody there was crying
Drop me off in a town without pity
And let me be the one that's dying

Killed by love
Killed by love
Killed by love
Oh bye bye love

Ha ha ha ha

Killed by love (killed by love)
Killed by love (killed by love)
Killed by love (killed by love)
Oh bye bye love (oh bye bye)

Killed by love oh yeah
Killed by love, I'm thinking fast baby
Killed by love, you know you're killing me baby
Baby, baby
Oh bye bye love

I'm Hungry

I got a head full of faces, a heart full of pain
I got some bad ideas feedin' my brain
I got a night full of promise, a city full of prey
Looks like everything is going my way

I got an eye for the beauties and a mouth full of charm
I gotta tongue dripping poison tattooed on my arm

Gimme gimme gimme gimme something to eat
Gimme gimme gimme gimme something so sweet
Gimme gimme gimme gimme something to chew
Something soft and tender... how 'bout you?

I'm hungry
I'm hungry
Yeah I'm hungry
Oh I'm hungry

I got a smile for the lady that goes on my face
I got a kiss on my lips that leads to my place
I got a bed in my basement fit for two
I got some chloroform and handcuffs just for you

Woo
Woo
Woo
Woo

I'm hungry
I'm hungry
Yeah I'm hungry
Oh I'm hungry

Gimme gimme gimme gimme something to eat
Gimme gimme gimme gimme something so sweet
Gimme gimme gimme gimme something to chew
Something soft and tender... how 'bout you?

I'm hungry
I'm hungry
Yeah I'm hungry
Oh I'm hungry

Woo Woo woo
woo woo woo
Woo woo woo
woo woo woo

The One That Got Away

You look like you'd fit in the trunk of my car
I might let you live, I might go too far
I could wrap you up and take ya home
We'd be all alone

Oh should I let you be the one that got away
Knew it would happen but I didn`t know it'd be today
All the voices in my head always sing insane
The one that got away, away, away, today

Keep it down don't talk, I have to think
I could let you walk, I could feed the sink
I could grind you up and disappear
like you were never here

Should I let you be the one that got away
Knew it would happen but I didn`t know it'd be today
All the voices in my head always scream insane
The one that got away

Voiceover:
Spider: "Hi, I was just wondering if you could help me out. Um.. my hands
are full could you just help me open the door to my van?"
Victim: "oh I'm sorry, you see I just broke my nail and I can't even hold my
keys.. I ... gotta go.. dumb psycho"
Spider: "Hmm... must be your lucky day"

I should of let you be the one that got away
Knew it would happen but I didn`t know it'd be today
All the voices in my head scream insane
The one that got away
You're the one that got away
Ah you're the one that got away
The one that got away (away, away, away, away, away)
The one that got away (away, away, away, away, away)
The one that got away (away, away, away, away, away)

Voiceover:
Spider: "Hmm, maybe some other time"

Salvation

What if I'm wrong,
I've been deceived all along
What if I'm wrong

What have I done
Did I waste a life just for fun
What have I done

What did I do
I did what voices told me to
What did I do

Where will I go
Will I sink through fire down below
Where will I go

Any chance of salvation
Any chance for me
Any chance of salvation for eternity
Any chance of salvation
Someone died for me
Washed in blood he cared enough to pity me

Why do I care
What's wrong with me, my hate is gone
Why do I care

When did I change
What's different now, it's very strange
When did I change

Any chance of salvation
Any chance for me
Any chance of salvation for eternity
Any chance of salvation
Someone died for me
Washed in blood he cared enough to pity me

In my heart
In my soul
Something's new, that's very old
Like a pain that's finally gone
I feel my heavy burden lifted

Any chance of salvation
Any chance for me
Any chance of salvation

Any chance of salvation
Any chance for me
Any chance of salvation for eternity
Any chance of salvation
Any chance for me
Any chance of salvation for eternity
Any chance of salvation
Any chance for me
Any chance of salvation for eternity
Sal-va-tion
Sal-va-tion
Sal-va-tion

I Am The Spider/Epilogue

I'm your lover
I'm your brother
I'm your killer
I'm your friend
I'm your teacher
I'm your preacher
I'm the reaper in the end

I'm your healer
I'm your dealer
I'm your angel, lets pretend
I'm your jailer
I'm your failure
I'm the reaper in the end

Along came a spider
Crept up beside her
Spun his web deep inside her
My darkness will guide her

I am the spider
I am the spider
I am the spider
I am the spider

You're my sinner
You're my dinner
My little puppet, let's pretend
You're the cure to my affliction
My addiction till end

Along came a spider
Crept up beside her
Spun his web deep inside her
My darkness will guide her

I am the spider
I am the spider
I am the spider
I am the spider

I was born to this
Not something to strive for
Not something to even admire
Unless of course it's done with the greatest of taste
Conviction and expertise
I am the spider

Along came a spider
Crept up beside her
Spun his web deep inside her
My darkness will guide her

I am the spider
I am the spider
I am the spider
I am the spider

Epilogue:
Spider: "Well, they found my diary today. They were appropriately appalled
at the discovery of the eight victims. They're now putting it all together.
Women wrapped in silk with one leg missing. Eight legs, one body, silk,
spider, brilliant!"
"We've been in this cell for 28 years Steven. We couldn't have done all
those horrible things. Yes, I know. I know what you always say. You trap,
you kill, you eat. That's what a good spider does. You trap, you kill, you
eat. You trap, you kill, you eat."

Shadow Of Yourself

Since you been gone
I see your skin
So pale and drawn
So grey and thin

You're just a shadow of yourself
A shade of a different colour
Let me create you
Let me help
You're just a shadow of yourself

With all my love
With all my heart
My masterpiece
My work on you is a piece of art

You're just a shadow of yourself
A shade of a different colour
Let me create you
Let me help
You're just a shadow of yourself

You're just a shadow of yourself
A shade of a different colour
Let me degrade you
Let me help
You're just a shadow of yourself

Your hollow eyes (a shadow of yourself)
Your twisted smile
Your open arms? (a shadow of yourself)
Come here and lie with me awhile

You're just a shadow of yourself
A shade of a different colour
Let me degrade you
Let me help
You're just a shadow of yourself

You're just a shadow of yourself
A shade of a different colour
Let me decimate you
Let me help
You're just a shadow of yourself

(A shadow of yourself)

I'll Still Be There

I lay in bed and in my head
There's work that must be done
There are flies to kill and blood to spill
And webs that must be spun

Change your face, your name, your number
Cut your hair
Bolt your doors and lock your windows
I'll find you there

Can't eat, can't sleep.
This city creeps with sacrificial sheep
Well I thought of grace for mercy's sake
But that will go away

Change your face, your name, your number
Dye your hair
Bolt your doors and lock your windows
I'll find you there
Hold your breath I still can hear you
Anywhere
Fake your death, I'm always near you
I'll be there

Somewhere in there, my clouded brain, a voice says I'm insane...

Disguise your eyes
No you can't hide
Shake up your make up
Or you'll never wake up
You may not wake up (You can't hide)
You'll never wake up (You can't hide)
You'll never wake up (I'll always be there)
They'll find you face up (What's left of you there)
