I'm plowing through a crowd of worthless hatred
That's falling down, at least they start to fry
Why can't I be removed, take their places?
Sometimes it's better to eat their scars

These are the times of the waking liar
Hold him close or you will expire
Holding on to the place you're thinking
Total deceit

I like to lose hope
Recede and cope
Like a beautiful rape
These things, aren't they great?

I'm terrified by emotionless faces
They're all around me I want to die
I'm fucking trippin' out seeing faces
Of murderers covered in lye

These are the times of the waking liar
Hold him close or you will expire
Holding on to the place you're thinking
Total deceit

I like to lose hope
Recede and cope
Like a beautiful rape
These things, aren't they great?

I love the things that make you upset
The more you hurt, the stronger I get
I love the things that make you upset
The more you hurt, the stronger I get!

I like to lose hope
Recede and cope
Like a beautiful rape
These things, aren't they great?
Aren't they great?

    The part where he says "like a beautiful rape/these things aren't they great? " and "the more you hurt the stronger i get" refers to rape and how much this song exalts raping a helpless woman/person
