lyrics

I'm the shadow that creeps
Along the cold concrete at sundown
I'm like the rain that beats
I slick the streets with my blasphemous sound

Come and take my hand
Pretty lady don't you know
I'm your Murder Man

Nothing matters more than your shrieks
And white, lifeless eyes
I love you most when you're a corpse
I love you when I taste your last sigh
And at your final moment
I smile wider than a circus clown
My head is hot, my heart is stone
Until my next victim is found

Come and take my hand
Pretty lady don't you know
I'm your Murder Man

My father baptized me in sin
My mom I've never known
An unholy ghost walks hand-in-hand with my broken soul
Please deliver me
Please deliver me
Oh please Lord, call me home

I'm the epitome of emptiness
And I need my fill of bloodlust
I wander through the darkness
To get my cheap thrills
I wish there was another way
To satiate the demons that cry
But they keep getting louder
Drowning out the last sanity inside

Come and take my hand
Pretty lady don't you know
I'm your Murder Man

The eight-piece ensemble has been described by De La Vie TV as “the best band you’ve never heard of” with “one of the best live shows that will leave you watching in awe.” ... more
