Track Name: The Ex-Boogeymen - Let Your Self Drown
“Let Your Self Drown”

My love comes down
Like pouring rain
Spins you around
Takes you away

Just like an undertow
Tsunami twist
Well, it’s a torpedo
Yeah, it’s a son of a bitch

I see you splashing around
You’re neither lost nor found
It’s gonna bring you down, you better
Just let yourself drown

Call in a shark attack
Razor-sharp and mean
Piranha snack
A U.K. submarine

I’ve got you in my scope
You know that it’s too late
’Cause I’m your fisher-man
And, honey, you’re my bait

I see you splashing around
You’re neither lost nor found
It’s gonna bring you down, you better
Just let yourself drown
Track Name: The Ex-Boogeymen - Night Breed
“Night Breed”

Suicide hangs by my side
Just like a rosary
Will I survive, can I take it in stride
Will I be set free?

At night when I walk the streets
You know I feel so mean
Never know which way to go
My dreams are losing sleep

I kick it Night Breed

Can’t conceive all the things I need
To make it through this itch
To testify, crucify my mind
Makes it shiver and twitch

At night when I walk the streets
You know I can’t be seen
Alien, ghost, parasitic host
My dreams are losing sleep

I kick it Night Breed

Got a hunger, got a fever, it’s a shadow play
Caught the sickness, know the symptoms, there’s no remedy
I’ve been accused of doing bad things just for fun
And when the sun shines down you know I’m on the run

At night when I walk the streets
You know my talk is cheap
Promises that I can’t keep
My dreams are losing sleep
Track Name: The Ex-Boogeymen - No Surprise
“No Surprise”

I am an angel
I am a toad
I wait, I wait, I wait
For the sun to explode

I am a devil
A funeral pyre
Tearing and scratching at
One’s open desire, singing

A-whew, A-whew, A-whew,
A-whew, A-whew, A-whew,
A-whew, A-whew, A-whew
I hear the church bells ringing, singing
A-whew, A-whew, A-whew,
A-whew, A-whew, A-whew,
A-whew, A-whew, A-whew

Don’t care what your mamma says
I’m coming after you tonight
Don’t care what your daddy says
I put him in the ground tonight

There by the window
Hear the lover’s call
Roses and candles, then
Another fall

Scary monster movie
On the TV screen
Angry and restless, now
That monster is me, singing

A-whew, A-whew, A-whew,
A-whew, A-whew, A-whew,
A-whew, A-whew, A-whew
I hear the church bells ringing, singing
A-whew, A-whew, A-whew,
A-whew, A-whew, A-whew,
A-whew, A-whew, A-whew

Don’t care what your brother says
I’m coming after you tonight
Don’t care what your sister says
I put her on her back tonight

I cut you open, look inside
An empty hole, it’s no surprise
Dead inside

I drink your water, it tastes like blood
A gutted ship lost in the flood
Capsized, it’s no surprise

It’s no surprise, it’s no surprise
My love for you has been revised
It’s no surprise
