Ice Nine Kills, lyrics to “Hip to be Scared”

[Verse 1: Spencer Charnas]
In the richest sections
A killer complexion is often a great alibi
Valentino couture mixed with violence and gore
“Well I guess I’m a pretty sick guy”
With my beauty routines and a fridge full of spleen
Some might say it’s extreme but it’s time to say goodbye

[Chorus: Spencer Charnas]
So to hell with good intentions
So to hell where I will go
But the devil makes exceptions
For all American psychopaths

[Interlude: Spencer Charnas]
“Patrick, where are you going?
“I’m just leaving”
“But why?”
“I have to return videotapes”

[Verse 2: Spencer Charnas]
You won’t find any escape once you are captured on tape
I am aware that it is a bit avant-garde
“[?] whore [?] facing pieces “
Just keep wanting without ever crying
But wait let me give you my card
“This is the bone”
There is no real me, just an austere entity that cannot be redeemed
So it’s time to say goodbye
[Chorus: Spencer Charnas]
So to hell with good intentions
So to hell where I will go
But the devil makes exceptions
For all American psychopaths
Keep my calls
i will kill them all
So to hell with good intentions
For all American psychopaths

[Skit: Spencer Charnas & Jacoby Shaddix]
“Do you like Ice Nine Kills?” “
“Not really”
“Their early work was a bit too stage for me but when The silver cry came out, I think they really established themselves commercially and artistically. The whole album has a refined melodic sensibility which really makes it a cut above the rest “
“Hi Paul”

[Verse 3: Spencer Charnas]
“Have you reached the offices of?, Please leave a message?”
Eric, hello
As a lawyer you know I’m psychotic but I’ve crossed the line
I killed Rufus, then Mika, José with a knife
But I don’t think I’m gonna make it this time

[Chorus 2: Spencer Charnas & Jacoby Shaddix]
To hell with good intentions
In hell this is where I will go
But the devil makes exceptions
For all American psychopaths
Keep my calls
i will kill them all
So to hell with good intentions
For all Americans
American psychos
