 ailanrutas si siht
 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 that. -- 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 invinted 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
 
 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
 just empty shells -- in the
 deafening void -- of our
 last sunset

Trivia[edit]

  • Both in the vinyl and CD versions of Heaven Upside Down, in the lyrics of "Saturnalia" he describes at the beginning the phrase "ailanrutas si siht" that around is "This is Saturnalia", although in the song at the beginning strange voices say the last and not what it says in the letters.
  • The fragment: "A stunning possesions of symbolic firearms" was taken from the booklet of the compact disc of the album Eat Me, Drink Me.
