Lyrics[edit]

 ailanrutas si siht [This is saturnalia]
 
 When all your demons die
 even if just one survives,
 I will still be here to hold you.
 No matter how cold you are.
 No matter how cold you are.
 
 I see the terror
 in your teardrop
 take your belief
 make it snow
 let go and wait together until we thaw.
 
 I don't want to be another bullet hole
 in the exit sign
 of your road.
 I don't want to be another bullet hole
 in the exit sign
 of your road.
 
 Just smile like a rifle
 hot metal in the setting sun
 Just smile like a rifle
 hot metal in the setting sun
 
 I was invited to
 eat the young
 I was invited to
 eat the young
 A stunning possession
 of symbolic firearms,
 in the bottomless
 celebrity scar
 A stunning possession
 of symbolic firearms,
 in the bottomless
 celebrity scar
 
 I don't want to be another bullet hole
 in the exit sign
 of your road.
 I don't want to be another bullet hole
 in the exit sign
 of your road.
 
 So
 Just smile like a rifle
 hot metal in the setting sun
 Just smile like a rifle
 hot metal in the setting sun
 
 and I was invited to
 eat the young
 I was invited to
 eat the young
 
 SI SIHT
 AILANRUTAS
 
 [THIS IS
 SATURNALIA]
 
 the roadside
 all the bones picked clean no 
 gas in our machine
 I will still be here to hold you
 no matter how cold you are
 no matter how cold we are
 
 Can't stop now
 no flowers to smell
 the Earth ate up the Son
 can't even load my gun
 it seems like Saturnalia
 
 SAT SAT SAT SAT
 SATURNALIA
 
 No exit plan here
 no emergency room
 in this tomb
 and this door
 only opens one way
 No exit plan here
 no emergency room
 in this tomb
 and this door
 only opens one way
 
 SAT SAT SAT SAT
 SATURNALIA
 
 Blinded by blackness
 we're just empty shells
 in the deafening void
 of our last sunset
 Blinded by blackness
 we're just empty shells
 in the deafening void
 of our last sunset
