LYRICS

Come on take a slide down the spiral
Gonna get yourself right ‘round the bend
Of the plague that prevails, you’ll find history impaled
On that sharp little hook at the end

Soon there’s even babies being born with it
Eyes fish-white and blind to the sun
With sharp, twisted teeth made to spread the disease
Come and see where your monsters come from

Dredge it up, dredge it up, from the bottom!
Dredge it up, dredge it up, from the bottom!

Howard’s daddy died screaming
Ate alive by invisible beasts
And mother’s quick to attest that what’s under his flesh
Is just waiting to bloom with disease

Now Howard looks out on still waters
And feels fathoms beginning to stir
We’re the heirs of what’s under the surface
Just a plague to be wiped from the earth

Dredge it up, dredge it up, from the bottom!
Dredge it up, dredge it up, from the bottom!
Dredge it up from your veins, dredge it up from your core
Dredge it up from the drains in the slaughterhouse floor
Dredge it up, dredge it up, from the bottom!

Now we stand on the dry land of logic
We've dissected and pulled back the skin
But what’s at the heart bares twisted fangs and declares
“All Hail Horror, and bring on the end!"

Dredge it up, dredge it up, from the bottom!
Dredge it up, dredge it up, from the bottom!
Dredge it up from your veins, dredge it up from your core
Dredge it up from the drains in the slaughterhouse floor

Drag it out of the depths of your terror and shame
Make it into a monster that you can contain
And if it helps you believe you can hold off the dark
With a shot to the head or a stake through the heart
Dredge it up! Dredge it up! From the bottom!

Bat Country Seattle, Washington

They are currently waiting outside your window with rusty shovels to bury you in the creeping existential dread of their pretty melodies. This is all ye know and all ye need know. ... more
