Track Name: Black Death Girl
When the sky is marred by fire
And your world's a funeral pyre
Join me in the darkness
When air and sun conspire
Turn and feed your dark desire
Join me in the darkness

Chorus:
'Cause I want you to be my girl
I want you to share my world
I want you to be my--be my
Black Death Girl

When the comet takes his throne
And unearthly voices drone
Join me in the darkness
When they're burning all the bones
And you're lost and all alone
Join me in the darkness

I'm the answer to unending sorrow, pain, and hunger
I'm the sum of all your need
I'll be with you though the pain and fear be overwhelming
Come with me

When you finally realize
That eternal night draws nigh
Join me in the darkness
My call you can't deny
I bid thee, come and die
Join me in the darkness

'Cause I want you to be my girl...
Track Name: She's Haunting
I know she cares about me,
I know she really cares about me
She’s here with me
I know she cares about me,
I’m very sure she really cares about me
She’s holding me

She’s haunting.

She takes me to a special place
Where she’s got a special gift
She gives to me
Right now she takes me to a special place
She’s here to take me to a special place
She’s here for me

She’s haunting.

Her voice is like a ringing bell
Like I hear her from another realm
She’s loving me
Her voice is like a ringing bell
Even when she asks me to hurt myself
She’s loving me

She’s haunting.
Track Name: Black Light
Nine miles out of Philly
Just about midnight
Tryin’ to put it all behind me
On the Pennsylvania Turnpike
Everything that I’m gonna need
I got right here within reach
Mini-thins on the passenger side
A trench knife under my seat

I haven’t eaten since late last night
And Black Light’ll make it all alright
But I can’t stand it any more

Doomsday, doomsday
I can hear it on the radio
I can feel it in the airwaves
All these things that I don’t wanna know
Black Death surrounds me,
But I’m baptized by the dashboard glow
When it’s time to go, it’s time to go

I haven’t slept in three damn days
And Black Light’ll make it all OK
But I can’t stand it any more

Found a ticket, I found a ticket
I found a way back home
Back to a home that I don’t know
A life that I don’t own
And the blood that’s in my veins
I can feel it leaving but I just don’t know
Where it is that it goes
I only know it goes

A black hope to keep me up all night
And Black Light to make it all alright
And I can’t stand it any more

So what’s the takeaway from all this?
What is it that I get out of this?
I mean besides the eight-inch, fluted, steel blade
That rides with me at night on the highway.
The black, grasping trees of rural PA clutch at me through the night
Stripping me bare and raw
The dead, grey light of dawn
Leaves me cold
Leaves me cold

I haven’t seen the sun in three damn days
And Black Light’ll make it go away
But I can’t stand it any more

Baptize me, O Dashboard Glow
Wash me clean or lay me low
For Death hath lost its dominion
Over whatever’s left of my soul
Bear me north, O Mighty Genesee
For whatever it is that’s left of me
Is bound to plead refuge in whatever’s left
Of my lost city

Been cold and empty since I don’t know when
And Black Light’ll make me whole again
But I can’t stand it any more.
