Lyrics

Rest in Peace 17

Shatter my bones
Impale my erogenous zones
Drink all this blood that I cough
They'll have to stretcher me off
Take out my innards and make me watch as I burn up

But let me tell you, whatever you do
It really don't get to me, oh
I'll forgive what you've done
So I rest in peace

???
Switch off your safety mode
Launch in to kill and explode
Don't suffer no fools no more
Just one more jellyfish looking for someone to sting

But let me tell you, whatever you do
It really don't get to me, oh
I forgive what you've done
So I rest in peace

I say, there's room enough for two of us to pay

They got Cape Canaveral helping me to navigate this
Won't get caught up between no Scylla and Charybdis
Every Care Bear´s got a special symbol on his tummy
I accept this mission even if it's gonna kill me
Beat me, hurt me, bruise me
Hate me 'til I'm woozy
This is quite the epic journey

Drink all this blood that I cough
They'll have to stretcher me off
Take out my innards and make me watch as I burn up

But let me tell you, whatever you do
It really don't get to me
Oh, I forgive what you've done
I rest in peace

Let me tell you, whatever you do
It really don't get to me
Oh, I forgive what you've done
So I rest in peace
I'll rest in peace
I'll rest in peace

Rest in Peace 18

Shatter my bones
Impale my erogenous zones
Drink all this blood that I cough
They'll have to stretcher me off
Take out my innards and make me watch as I burn up

But let me tell you, whatever you do
It really don't get to me, oh
I'll forgive what you've done
So I'll rest in peace

???
Switch off your safety mode
Launch in to kill and explode
Don't suffer no fools no more
Just one more jellyfish looking for someone to sting

But let me tell you, whatever you do
It really don't get to me, oh
I forgive what you've done
So I rest in peace

I say, there's room enough for two of us to pay

They got Cape Canaveral helping me to navigate this
Won't get caught up between no Scylla and Charybdis
Every Care Bear´s got a special symbol on his tummy
I accept this mission even if it's gonna kill me
Beat me, hurt me, bruise me
Hate me 'til I'm woozy
This is quite the epic journey

Drink all this blood that I cough
They'll have to stretcher me off, oh

But let me tell you, whatever you do
It really don't get to me
Oh, I forgive what you've done
I rest in peace

Let me tell you, whatever you do
It really don't get to me
Oh, I forgive what you've done
So I rest in peace
I'll rest in peace
I'll rest in peace
