Lyrics[edit]

    Do you always
    Have to hire actors,
    To play the devils
    That talk me 
    Out of my
    Sui-sites?


    You're just 
    A ring tone, 
    That happens when 
    You get sick enough 
    To call the one 
    With bullet holes
    Bullet holes for eyes


    Fall on your knees
    I hear the horrid voices
    Of someone else's angels
    Fall on your knees
    I hear the horrid voices
    Of someone else's angels


    I broke open the box
    When I spoke the spell
    And I became
    An entrance wound 
    To your bedroom grave,
    And I was paid
    With the shadow of consensual rape
    Your ransom note
    Is quoted by,
    Your death and
    Birth certificates
    And all of your love,
    And all of your love letters
    Read just like my will


    Fall on your knees
    I hear the horrid voices
    Of someone else's angels
    Fall on your knees
    I hear the horrid voices
    Of someone else's angels


    I don't have to see
    To know that murderers
    Are getting prettier
    Every day
    I don't have to see
    To know that murderers
    Are getting prettier
    Every day


    Fall on your knees
    I hear the horrid voices
    Of someone else's angels
    Fall on your knees
    I hear the horrid voices
    Of someone else's angels


Trivia[edit]

  • It can be assumed that the chorus lyrics, "Fall on your knees, I hear the horrid voices, of someone else's angels" may have been partly inspired by the Christian song "O Holy Night", which are seemingly reminiscent to it's lyrics, "Fall on your knees, and hear the angels voices."
