Hush little baby
Don't make a sound

Hush little baby
Don't make a move

This is gonna hurt
Me more than you

(Blood)

If I'm a danger to myself
Just think what I could do to you…

[V1.]

Twisting & turning
My insides are burning
Like larva feeding from the kill

The pestilence of decadence
I worship my emptiness
I'm ravaged by the damages of this hell

[Chorus]

Eat the children raw
Eat the children raw
Eat the children raw

It's easy to beat
These worms to sleep

Operators are standing by
Some restrictions may apply
Side effects could include
We'll steal the life right out of you

[V2.]

Descending, unending
& still I'm pretending
I've regressed to become one of them

They gave me this affliction
I yield to my addiction
I can't repress myself

[Chorus]

Eat the children raw
Eat the children raw
Eat the children raw

It's easy to beat
These worms to sleep

Operators are standing by
Some restrictions may apply
Side effects could include
We'll steal the life right out of you

[Bridge]

(Blood)

If I'm a danger to myself
Just think what I could do to you…

Role model number one
Taught you how to shave

Role model number two
Took you to the PTA

They tell us how to dress
And teach us to obey

But they never heard a word
That you had to say

For shame.
For shame.

'Cause I am vermin
I'm the anti-christ
Just another lonely chapter
In the book of lies

Don't they know that they are the prey?
Don't they know they are the prey?
Don't they know that they are the prey?
Don't they know they are the prey?

Don't they know I'm a predator
Don't they know they are the prey
Don't they know I'm a predator
Don't they know I'm insane? [x2]

[Chorus]

Eat the children raw
Eat the children raw
Eat the children raw

It's easy to beat
These worms to sleep

Operators are standing by
Some restrictions may apply
Follow this simple rule
We'll do it to them if I do it to you
These words cut...

(Blood)
(Blood)
