S.C.A.V.A. is a song from Hollywood Undead's second album, American Tragedy.

Background

J-Dog told the story behind the song: "We were sitting around one day actually talking about the end of the world because of all this shit that's happening. The chorus came out talking about 2012 and the end of the world, wondering if it's real or not, and how everyone's freaking out. We were contemplating it all. That's how the chorus came about. Then Johnny 3 Tears sat there with it and wrote his verses. When we were touring with Avenged Sevenfold, we showed Synyster Gates that song, and he said, 'Holy shit, that's the craziest verse I've ever heard! The lyrics are insane.' It's pretty heavy."

Lyrics

Danny: When the end is getting closer and the earth has burned the sky
Now repent 'cause it's all over, just let me die

Johnny 3 Tears: Here's the massacre, a mausoleum fit for me
Lived a hundred years, a hundred years I didn't see
Gave all my hope away, isn't any left for me?
Bombs are splitting atoms, what can the future bring?
We can fill a million choirs and wait till children sing
We can walk a million miles and end up in the sea
And our lungs just keep filling and lying when we breathe
This world's filled with liars, liars like me
And I look at my child, it's finite, this feeling
Eyes blue like the sky, I see all of this meaning
I reach up to God and I ask if I'm dreaming
So sorry I don't have those things that you're needing
Darling, a kiss? Kiss me, I'm leaving

Danny: When the end is getting closer, and the earth has burned the sky
Now repent 'cause it's all over, just let me die!
As my body lies here broken and I'm carried to the light
Now my heart is finally open, just let me die!

Johnny 3 Tears: Everybody says greetings and goodbyes
Everybody pays, no one knows the price
We know the price of sin, the sin of sacrifice
I know I'll sin again, but who can save me twice?
How much can we ask? You'll get the answer first
How much can we kneel with the air that chills the earth?
The air keeps getting colder, my knees keep hitting dirt
The innocent can cry without the guilty getting hurt
You ask who you love and you don't know, no, do you?
The spirit of God just passes right through you
You gave away heaven, handed right to you
And I can see it all, tell me, is it true?
Kiss me, my darling; darling, I need you

Danny: Where do we go, we go, oh?
Lord, I don't know where we go, we go, no
(I don't know)
Da Kurlzz and Danny: Where do we go, we go, oh?!
Lord, I don't know where we go, we go, no!
Johnny 3 Tears: (Lord, I don't know!)

Danny: When the end is getting closer and the earth has burned the sky
Now repent 'cause it's all over, just let me die!
As my body lies here broken and I'm carried to the light
Now my heart is finally open, just let me die!
