Every Time I Die - The Emperor's New Clothes Lyrics




all ways lead to the queen what cards she still holds she plays like a
hangman her house is full of the broken hearted a suicide king and a pair of
rusted spades she is gone a bit mad she wants her roses painted red but
we've yet to find the shade God save the queen she wears her suit on her
sleeve her hourglass shape is a funhouse reflection heartbreaker don't let
her find you here confidence is the cancer of this courtyard it'll split
your head if we don't get to the flowers red death by division don't call it
jealousy it's an exercise in infection control insanity's masterpiece split
at the seams shakespearean virgin your world is a stage but your charms in
the basket they gave the ax to an amateur I haven't stopped laughing how am
I supposed to line this up kneel down vanity everyone's waiting we all want
what's swollen depressurized look at the floor look at what you've done
narcissus your reflection is heartbroken red your savior wears a charcoal
veil these are the colors of her courtyard these are the suits that split
the days two handed engine runs itself through the bone when the ego lands
it rolls heads will roll

    All ways lead to the queen what cards she still holds she plays like a
    Hangman her house is full of the broken hearted a suicide king and a pair of
    Rusted spades she is gone a bit mad she wants her roses painted red but
    We've yet to find the shade God save the queen she wears her suit on her
    Sleeve her hourglass shape is a funhouse reflection heartbreaker don't let
    Her find you here confidence is the cancer of this courtyard it'll split
    Your head if we don't get to the flowers red death by division don't call it
    Jealousy it's an exercise in infection control insanity's masterpiece split
    At the seams shakespearean virgin your world is a stage but your charms in
    The basket they gave the ax to an amateur I haven't stopped laughing how am
    I supposed to line this up kneel down vanity everyone's waiting we all want
    What's swollen depressurized look at the floor look at what you've done
    Narcissus your reflection is heartbroken red your savior wears a charcoal
    Veil these are the colors of her courtyard these are the suits that split
    The days two handed engine runs itself through the bone when the ego lands
    It rolls heads will roll

    Forever, this has been one of my favorite ETID songs. Timeless and FLAWLESS.

  3. Jason Jasinski

    I'm reading a lot of hate on this EP. I personally think this is the best form of ETID. It's raw, chaotic and filthy, but once you take the time to figure out the chaos, it all makes sense and is magical.

    Julian Escobar

    Ya this was their best sound

  4. sheets0f metal

    2019 and this is still awesome!

  5. Biff

    the end reminds me of dillinger escape plan

    josh draken

    No, Dillinger reminds you of ETID.

  6. death lives

    greatest album by them.

  7. x x

    heads will roll

  8. Nick Martinsen

    they will rule

  9. Nick Martinsen

    cant understand a word but the sound of this song is great i dont care what anyone says

  10. silenthillstrangler

    Just finished watching a vid where keith and jordan rated their albums and flat out gave this a 0, lol, they actually looked disgusted when talking about it, lol, i can see why.

    oscar van

    I personally enjoy this, its just fun moshing with fucked as vocals unfortunately it wasn't produced well.

  11. Limbless Traveler

    I still enjoy songs like 'Off Broadway" bbut yeah I could agree, up until Hot Damn was my favorites.

  12. WeThreeBearsTube

    you're a giant idiot hole

  13. jewstin

    ha, that's when they turned to shit

  14. Noah Brierley

    ohh no doubt he is extremely talented guy I was just stating that for this particular EP his vocals weren't great but his vocals in anything after this EP are awesome!!!

  15. 0wnage55885

    I guess it would fit into the shouting category over screaming\singing\tuvan throat singing\whatever.
    Regardless, he can still be considered a talented vocalist, Whether that means preconceived talents, or skills acquired later in life.

    But I would still tell people he is a screamer over a shouter or singer.

  16. Noah Brierley

    well in this EP Keith said that he didn't actually know how to scream so he was more just yelling and then he added distortion to his voice

  17. Kevin West

    they should re record this shit.

  18. theverdictlondon

    @0wnage55885 He is a singer, helping you out:
    sing·er1    [sing-er] Show IPA
    noun
    1.
    a person who sings, especially a trained or professional vocalist.
    I've looked up the singing teacher who trained keith and well she is a genius, think about this, well this way, you ever heard of him damaging his voice or missing a show, its because he knows how to use his vocals without being a moron, so for sure he is a singer,

    screaming is a way to exercise vocal control. singing also exercises vocal control. I am more attraced to screaming because I like noise. singing is a more refined art. Screaming has been refined over the years as well. Screaming s like adding a lot of hot sauce to your music. it may drown out the taste, but when it has impact, who needs taste? I like music to go straight for the jugular and strangle me to death. I respect both singing and screaming.

    Tom Guerrero

    Daniel Stromberg this. such a fucking excellent analogy. well done player.

  20. BonersGames

    @optimisticautiously if you don't want to classify it as singing, then don't. The fact remains that some people like screaming. the more incoherant, the better. I don't know how to explain it without sounding like a total hippy, but whatever. It's the feeling behind the screaming that makes it appealing. It illicits an emotional response from me, and I can't really explain why. 99% of lyrics are completely vapid and dumb anyways, most of the times i'm wishing songs were as incoherant as^

  21. James Knott

    wait, i had mustard?

  22. Schectersch1

    what are you talking about man.. who is singing? why do you have to understand anything? you like the song or you don't, why you have to go and analyze it is beyond me, but i'm sure if you're able to walk you can understand the difference between SINGING AND NOT SINGING. good song.

  23. 0wnage55885

    who said it was the same thing? people might call him a singer even tough he screams. and people like screaming the same way they like singing, we all have our preferences.
    shout, scream, sing, all different.
