Resurrecting Darlings on Broadway

Looking for a way to redefine
The essence of Deathrattle89
Learning the nature of all things
For the way that the venom sings

Fascinations of dark enticement to enthrall
Documentaries of the devil inside of us all
When monster is synonymous with the un-redeemed
The vain enchantment of the horror dreamed

Nightmares of the waking dead
Appetites of the carnal fed
Psychopathic entertainments of the criminally insane
Can you see the light for the shadows reign?

Taking shape the silhouette
Writing my way through the madness of an empty threat
Unload the words to tell the story
The serial killer framed as an allegory

Lessons learned from the standpoint of damnation
Iíve known it all too well
Desperate for the beauty of salvation
From the depths of this living hell

Notoriety spoken line by line
A romance of sorrow and tragedy frame by frame
Significance forged of the headlines name

Obsessions of possessions in the vain will to glorify
Itís just the way we justify
Iím not the man behind the scene
Iím just the consumer
Pick your poison, every sin is speculation
You got me pegged but itís just a rumor
Is the disturbance worth infatuation?

Offspring of the media, televising the hostility
Marvel at the aftermath of what gives a man such an ability
When scary is fiction weíre desensitized to the reality
Finding harmony in the chaos of another playwright for the malady

Oh the horror and the market for her
Undead darlings come back to haunt the screen
Light up Broadway in the dark and make another scene
Making legends of the vile
Does the reenactment of the sick and twisted make you smile?

Or is it just a thirst to understand
What makes us human is the ugly ways of man
Can the devil be forgiven?
Or is it wishful thinking to believe
Can you love the unlovely?
When resurrection is the hope of even exiles to breathe

God save Jeffery Dahmer
Find the man behind the monster
Would Jesus wash such feet so dirty
Or do you short sight the value of the blood of the divine
For the ways the blood on the hands of killers might just as soon be mine

Forget not the victims for the way we vicariously honor
When vengeance is the Lordís, mercy is the way
God save Jeffery DahmerÖ
