she took an axe lyrics – flotsam & jetsam

a young maiden with a demon in her soul,
a twisted mind with secrets to unfold.
an innocent face, a deceiving smile,
under no suspicion, servant to belial.

the axe came down… blood all around…

she lurks possessed, without a sound,
butchers her dam when no one is around.
the next day her sire feels her wrath,
she has no remorse in her merciless bloodbath.

she’s miss lizzy, she feels no pain
the axe came down
she’s miss lizzy, she strikes again,
the axe came down… blood all around

lizzy borden took an axe, gave her mother forty whacks,
when she saw what she had done, she gave her father forty-one.

repeat refrain

repeat refrain

now before the jury with a solemn face,
these legendary murders… she left not a trace.
lizzy found it so simple to take their lives,
today she walks free… axe by her side…


she took an axe.

tonight we take the stage again,
to shock you and capture your holes.
the victims before us, words can’t describe,
the kind you seize only in your dreams.
her striking glance tells the story,
the l*st in her mind is plain to see.
she knows that i know what she’s thinking.
thinking of poisoning me…

poison me – snakes that bite – poison me

the time for gashing has come now,
the reptile slithers to me.
just one more persuasion,
her cold blood boils from the heat.
penetration, injection is painless,
forked-tongue flicking about.
a constrictor in the form of a woman,
with such a grip… i barely got out!


i’ll poison you with my venom,
come to me, viper… and see.

the stage smoulders in silence,
the pounding and banging is done…
for now, only until next time,
when for my venom, again you will come.
