Lyrics Edit

Opening
Whisper Begin
Do you feel that
Oh shit
Whisper Ends


Owhahahaha


Owhahahaha


Aw aw


Aw aw

Verse 1
Drowning deep in my sea of loathing
Broken your servant I kneel
Will you give it to me
It seems what's left of my human side
Is slowly changing ... in me
Will you give it to me


Looking at my own reflection
When suddenly it changes
Violently it changes
Oh no, There is no turning back now
You've woken up the demon ... in me

Chorus
Get up, come on get down with the sickness
Get up, come on get down with the sickness
Get up, come on get down with the sickness
Open up your hate, and let it flow into me
Get up, come on get down with the sickness
You mother get up
Come on get down with the sickness
You fucker get up
Come on get down with the sickness
Madness is the gift, that has been given to me

Verse 2
I can see inside you, the sickness is rising
Don't try to deny what you feel
Will you give it to me
It seems that all that was good has died
And is decaying in me
Will you give it to me


It seems you're having some trouble
In dealing with these changes
Living with these changes
Oh no, the world is a scary place
Now that you've woken up the demon ... in me

Chorus
Get up, come on get down with the sickness
Get up, come on get down with the sickness
Get up, come on get down with the sickness
Open up your hate, and let it flow into me
Get up, come on get down with the sickness
You mother get up
Come on get down with the sickness
You fucker get up
Come on get down with the sickness
Madness is the gift, that has been given to me

Bridge
And when I dream
And when I dream
And when I dream
AND WHEN I DREAM

Bridge 2(abuse scene)
No mommy, don't do it again
Don't do it again
I'll be a good boy
I'll be a good boy, I promise
No mommy don't hit me Oh-oohh
Why did you have to hit me like that mommy
Don't do it You're hurting me Oh-oohh
Why did you have to be such a bitch
Why don't you,
Why don't you fuck off and die
Why can't you just fuck off and die
Why can't you just leave here and die
Never stick your hand in my face again bitch
FUCK YOU
I don't need this shit
You stupid sadistic abusive fucking whore
get ready to see how it feels mommy
Here it comes, get ready to die


Final Chorus
Ooh Ah Ah Ah
Get up, come on get down with the sickness
Get up, come on get down with the sickness
Get up, come on get down with the sickness
Open up your hate, and let it flow into me
get up, come on get down with the sickness
You mother get up
Come on get down with the sickness
You fucker get up
Come on get down with the sickness
Madness has now come over me
