Knife Called Lust is a song by Hollywood Undead. It was planned to be released on Swan Songs, but never made it to the final cut. Instead, it was released on the band's EP, Swan Songs B-Sides EP. It was later featured on the collector's edition of Swan Songs.

Background

This song was recorded by the band back in 2005, when they were still signed to MySpace and Shady Jeff was still a member. Despite songs like The Natives and Black Dahlia being re-recorded to exclude Jeff's vocals after his departure, this song was never re-recorded and was released with Jeff's vocals are still intact. This is one of the oldest songs released by the band, along with Christmas in Hollywood and The Kids.

Official Lyrics

Shady Jeff: Let's go right now!

J-Dog: I look alive, I'm dead inside
My heart has holes and black blood flows
We'll do some drugs, we'll fall in love
And get fucked up while the world just shrugs

With no thought logically
We're wandering the streets so aimlessly
I hate to see these kids just being
Put down so painlessly

And people say you dye your hair and wear tight jeans
That doesn't mean that you can't scream
And like loud noise
You got a choice, you have a voice

And just because you show no love
And hate on us, you fucked our trust
Now watch me thrust this knife called lust
Into my chest until it busts!

Deuce and Shady Jeff: This love, this hate is burning me away
Deuce: It's hard to face that we're all the same
Deuce and Shady Jeff: This love, this hate is burning me away
It's harder times like these that never change

Charlie Scene: Mad at the fact that your dad is an addict
Your friend takes pills, he thinks it cures sadness
I'm not here to attack or make you kids panic
But it's just tragic, the way you kids have it

Everybody sins and it all begins
It goes back around, nobody ever wins
And you stab yourself in the back
Everybody, just relax

It all just hits so close to home
We all got friends but we stand alone
And you're on your own from a broken home
You keep the truth inside and it stays unknown

Nostalgia hits and it's time to quit
And everybody acts like it don't mean shit
And your friend will stab you just to fuck some girl
Put your hands in the air and scream "fuck the world!"

Deuce and Shady Jeff: This love, this hate is burning me away
Deuce: It's hard to face that we're all the same
Deuce and Shady Jeff: This love, this hate is burning me away
It's harder times like these that never change

Charlie Scene and Deuce: (Let go!)
Deuce: I'll bring you closer
Charlie Scene and Deuce: (Right now!)
Charlie Scene: I'll hold on tightly
Charlie Scene and Deuce: (Let go!)
Deuce: We're going nowhere
Charlie Scene and Deuce: (Somewhere!)
Charlie Scene: And things aren't over

Deuce: Harder times like these!
Da Kurlzz, Deuce, and Shady Jeff: Growing up on the streets!
Deuce: Harder times like these!
Da Kurlzz, Deuce, and Shady Jeff: I'll put you back on your feet!

Deuce and Shady Jeff: This love, this hate is burning me away
Deuce: It's hard to face that we're all the same
Deuce and Shady Jeff: This love, this hate is burning me away
It's harder times like these that never change

This love, this hate is burning me away
Charlie Scene: And I fall to the ground with my teardrops
And I get lost every time my heart stops

Deuce and Shady Jeff: This love, this hate is burning me away
Charlie Scene: And I fall to the ground with my teardrops
And I get lost every time my heart stops

Charlie Scene, Da Kurlzz, Deuce, and Shady Jeff: This love, this hate is burning me away...
