about

Ghost stories.


"It's triumphant...

More than almost all of their peers The Sharp Teeth understand the power of dynamics in rock music. The ability to drop into bass and drum driven verses and then roar back with high powered guitars speaks to the talents of this band as songwriters. This is obviously a work that has been crafted with endless love and devotion. It's a refined and interesting listen. It's an album you are going to fall in love with time and time again and which can't help but to shock, impress and make you wonder when we will get more."
-Matt Bacon, Two Guys Metal Reviews

"2.8 out of 3"

Track Name: Every Day, Every Night
Falling to pieces where I stand
You fall in a hurry, you fall on command
Fell out of favor, what is it good for?
You learn how to worry, you learn what to look for

I work with a knife
Everything stays alive

Every day every night

Why

I’m so cold Just like I’ve been told
Why die well? We go to the same hell
Why die young? Just hold on
Why die at all? Dead cold

I cut and I slice
Everything stays alive

Every day every night
Track Name: Hexed
Laying hands on our wounds
It's an old superstition
Bite the gag, I’ll hold him down
No holy life can chase this old ghost out

So I just can’t shake my curse

Hexed life I can’t deny it’s complicated
Hexed life I can’t defy it generates my anima
My anima

Don’t look back, it is done
Burnt mistakes, missed connections
Die within and die without
All holy life just serves to drag us down

So we sing sweet curses

Hexed life I can’t defy it complicates us
Hexed life I can’t defy it generates my anima
My anima
Track Name: AK-47
Cease fire and come on down
I won’t give you up
How could I?
At gunpoint I’m terrified

*Chorus*

Kevlar, copper and lead
Spit the bullet out
One exit wound
Such pointless loss of life

*Chorus*

I pull my weight
Seven six two
Got three oh eight
Kill forty five

*Chorus*
Track Name: Drained
Hungrily
Lazily
Eagerly
It’s the same to me

Gotta keep it to yourself

On my way
Day by day
Easily
I can change my fate

Gotta keep it to myself

This just slows my dying down
All this just slows my dying down
While my days pass at a crawl
I’ll outlive you all

A broken mirror in the hall
I turn my portrait to the wall
Dare not look upon my face
Cause I’ll be erased

Gotta keep it from yourself

When the bodies are all found
They’ll start to pull them from the ground
And find they’re nothing but a shell
Cause I drain them well

Drained
Drained
By me
Cause I’m running out
Track Name: Revive
Revive revive revive revive
Revive revive revive revive

I want a second opinion
Someone who knows what I’m going through
I want a second opinion
Dead cells divided and split in two

Me and my godless sciences will bring her back to life
But the bruises on your hips and burns on your lips say
You tried so very hard to survive

Revive revive revive revive
Revive revive revive revive

Some say the dead are still living
Cages of flesh full of frozen blood
Stuck in a state of undying
Drain holy water from cursed mud

Me and my gutless scientist will bring her back to life
But the price that you pay when you give life away says
You probably will not wake up alive

Me and my godless sciences will bring her back to life
But the bruises on your hips and burns on your lips say
You tried so very hard to survive
Track Name: I Love It When A Plan Comes Together
Several years ago I said I’d be back
Took what I knew of you and painted it black
Ignore their rules I don’t care how far you’d go just to get up
You don’t want to know
You don’t want to know

Spit it out into a porcelain sink
Catch it up and then we’ll have us a drink
Ignore their loss I don’t care how far you’d go just to get off
You don’t want to know
You don’t want to know
Track Name: Blood Cult
It’s a blood moon
Seance
Calling
For chaos

She waits
For those dead men
Hollow
To follow

I know it’s wrong
The witch will get what she wants

Repent
Repay
Tragic
Magic

Revenge
Release
I know what is real

I know it’s wrong
The witch will get what she wants

I know it’s wrong
That bitch will get what she wants
I know it’s wrong
That bitch will get what she wants
Track Name: Honey
Bring the sacrifice to the altar
Dripping goblets gilded with gold
Bleeding bleeders will bleed out
Evil narco ritual death

Honey
I need
Sugar
Honey
I need
Sugar

Hang my head, get set for the gallows
Shallow graves reserved for the shallow
They’re not fucking around
Motherfuckers, get on the ground

Honey
I need
Sugar
Honey
I need
Murder

The bees made honey in the lion’s skull

Bring the sacrifice to the ether
Gilded goblets dripping with gold
Bleeding bleeders will bleed out
Evil narco ritual death
Death
Death
Track Name: A Ring Of Salt Will Protect You
あぶないところでした
Still can’t tell what is going on
あぶないところでした
せ~
おにみたずらがれ
I see your ghost almost every day
おにみたずらがれ
せ~
Pour a ring of salt on the ground
Nothing else can protect you now
Pour a ring of salt on the ground
せ~
ぼうれいかえります
You’re getting colder when it’s near to you
ぼうれいかえります
しんれいスパト
しょうがない
Everything dies
Track Name: Tricks
It’s the only trick I never learned
It’s the only trick I never learned

It’s the only trick I never learned
On the back road on the weekend
None more like it
Yeah my caustic twin will take the burn

It’s the only trick I never learned
On the highway through the valley
None more like it
Yeah my cousin says we’re taking turns

When we were young we could not swim
So we would drown inside the brim
And if I could dip a finger in
And get a taste how things could have been
I'm growing blander hour by hour

You’re never alone
You’re never alone
You’re never alone
I’ll become exactly what you fear the most
You’re never alone
You’re never alone
You’re never alone
I’ll become exactly what you fear the most
You’re never alone
You’re never alone
You’re never alone
I’ll become exactly what you fear the most
You’re never alone
You’re never alone
You’re never alone
I will haunt you until I become your ghost
