    Lyrics:

    I AM A CHORUS OF THE VOICES
    THAT GATHER UP THE MAGNETS
    SET BEFORE ME

    I ATTRACT YOU AND REPEL YOU
    A SCIENCE OF THE HEART
    AND BLOOD AND MEANING

    THE COLDNESS OF MOST BEAUTIES
    IS A CHALLENGE THAT OUR YOUTH
    MUST QUICKLY CONQUER

    THERE IS NO TIME FOR GUILT
    OR SECOND GUESSING, SECOND GUESSING
    BASED ON FEELING

    I AM THE TRUTH, THE BEAUTY
    THAT CAUSES YOU TO CROSS
    YOUR SACRED BOUNDARIES

    I HAVE NO MORALS
    SOME THINK ME CHEAP
    AND SOMEONE WHO DESPISES
    THE NORMALCY OF HEARTBREAK
    THE PURITY OF LOVE

    BUT I WORSHIP THE YOUNG
    AND JUST FORMED ANGEL

    WHO SITS UPON THE PIN OF LUST
    EVERYTHING ELSE
    BORES ME

    I WANT TO SEE YOUR SUICIDE
    I WANT TO SEE YOU GIVE IT UP
    YOUR LIFE OF REASON
    I WANT YOU ON THE FLOOR
    AND IN A COFFIN YOUR SOUL SHAKING
    I WANT TO HAVE YOU DOUBTING
    EVERY MEANING YOU’VE AMASSED
    LIKE A FORTUNE

    OH THROW IT AWAY

    FOR WORSHIP SOMEONE
    WHO ACTIVELY DESPISES YOU

    FOR WORSHIP SOMEONE
    WHO ACTIVELY DESPISES YOU

    I AM THE ROOT
    I AM THE PROGRESS
    I’M THE AGGRESSOR
    I AM THE TABLET
    THESE TEN STORIES

    WORSHIP
    WORSHIP

    PAIN AND EVIL HAVE THEIR PLACE
    SITTING HERE BESIDE ME
    I OFFER THEM TO YOU AS SERVANTS
    OF THE GOLD THAT YOU MUST GIVE

    PAIN AND EVIL HAVE THEIR PLACE
    SITTING HERE BESIDE ME
    AND I’LL OFFER THEM, I OFFER THEM TO YOU
    AS SERVANTS OF THE GOLD
    THAT YOU MUST GIVE TO ME

    I WANT TO SEE YOUR SUICIDE
    I WANT TO SEE YOU GIVE IT UP, GIVE IT UP
    YOUR YOUR LIFE OF REASON

    I WANT TO SEE YOU ON THE FLOOR

    AND IN A COFFIN, SOUL SHAKING
    SOUL SHAKING
    I WANT TO HAVE YOU DOUBTING
    EVERY MEANING YOU’VE AMASSED
    LIKE A FORTUNE, LIKE A FORTUNE
    THROW IT AWAY
