Twiggy: 

And now, the six merry murderers of the Jacksonville County Jail, in their rendition of the Antichrist Tango. 

Bitch

Dope

Guns

Kaboom

Vampire 

Switchblade. 

Bitch, dope, guns, kaboom, vampire, switchblade.
Bitch, dope, guns, kaboom, vampire, switchblade.
Bitch, dope, guns, kaboom, vampire, switchblade.

All

They had it comin'
They had it comin'
They only had themselves to blame
If you'd have been there
If you'd have seen it

I betcha you would have done the same

Bitch, dope, guns, kaboom, vampire, switchblade.
Bitch, dope, guns, kaboom, vampire, switchblade.

Anti:

You know how people have these little habits that get you down 

Like Christians 
Christians, they love to protest 
No, not protest, bitch. 
So I get to a show this one day
And I'm really pissed off
And I'm looking for a little bit of love from the crowd
Y'know, a couple goth hotties flashing for a good time 
Well, at first the crowd's screams overpowered them-- their antichrist was almost there 
Then came the Christians out there, yelling and protesting
No, not protesting.
Bitching. 
So after the show, I said to them, I said "You tell me I'm going to hell one more time." 
And they did
So I broke a bottle and let their God sort them out. 

All:

They had it comin'
They had it comin'
They only had themselves to blame
If you'd have been there
If you'd have heard it
I betcha you would have done the same... 

Omēga: 

My spaceship crashed in Hollywood, and a record producer named Barry found me. He told me he wanted to make me a rock star, and he did. He transformed me, and everything was going great 
Then came the dope
Before shows, he would dope me up, tell me I wasn't beautiful unless I was hooked 
He'd give me a fix, then send me onstage 
And then I found out
He was using me as a product 
Dope, my ass
Not only was I soulless, but as hollow as the O in God
So that night before I went onstage 
I switched the needles, and gave him a little hit too 
Some guys just can't hold their cyanide  

All

He had it comin'
He had it comin'
He took a being 
In its prime
And then he used it
And he abused it
It was a murder
But not a crime
(Kaboom, vampire, switchblade)

Holy: 

Now, I'm sitting in my hotel room 
Watching the TV, drinking 
Minding my own business
On TV, out storms a town mayor in a rage, announcing a shooting at a high school. 
"It was Manson," he says to the crowd, his target audience. 
He was crazy. 
And he kept on screamin'
"It was Manson!"
I was a scapegoat, through and through 
That mayor sure loved his guns, god and government 
He loved them so much he took bullets for them.

All

If you'd have been there
If you'd have seen it
I betcha you would have done the same!

Doktor

Sie sagen, ich habe meinem Gitarristen ins Gesicht getreten und ihn auf der Bühne getötet. Aber es ist nicht wahr. Manchmal benutze ich meine Faust und nicht meinen Mund, aber ich bin ein (H)eiliger.
Hasser nennen mich einen Mörder, aber ich bin etwas, das sie nie sein werden.
(They say I kicked my guitarist John 5 in the face and killed him onstage. Kaboom! 
But it's not true. Sometimes I use my fist and not my mouth, but I am a (s)Aint. 
Haters call me a murderer, but I am something they will never be.)   

Anti:

Yeah, but did you do it?

Doktor

Kaboom kaboom! 

EMDM:

My girlfriend and I had this double act. 
She would travel round with us, come onstage sometimes. 
Now, for the last number in our act 
We did the song If I Was Your Vampire 
6 AM, Christmas morning, 
No shadows, no reflections
Swinging my knife mic around. 
So this one night before the show, she tells me she'd die for me 
So I decide to test our relationship, see if she really means it 
On stage, I get my knife mic out, and... 
Well, I was so lost in my performance, I completely blacked out, I can't remember a thing
It wasn't until later
When I was washing the blood off my body 
I even knew she was dead

All

She had it comin' (she had it comin')
She had it comin' (she had it comin')
She had it comin' all along
I didn't do it (he didn't do it)
But if I'd done it (but if he'd done it)
There'd be no evidence to convict! 

They had it comin' (they had it comin')
They had it comin' (they had it comin')
They had it comin' all along (they took a being in its prime)
I didn't do it (and then they used it)
But if I'd done it (and they abused it)
How could you tell me that I was wrong?

Heaven: 

I loved Johnny Depp 
More than I can possibly say
He was a real artistic guy
Sensitive, an actor 
We took a gold switchblade and made us a blood pact, babe. 
But he was always making false promises 
I asked him one day if he'd kill for me 
He said of course. But he didn't. He had a wife, all along. So I took that gold switchblade, and, well... 
I guess you could say we broke up because of lyrical differences
He saw it as "kill4me" 
And I just saw it as kill him 

Omēga and Holy: 

The dirty bum, bum, bum, bum, bum
The dirty bum, bum, bum, bum, bum

All: 

He had it comin' (he had it comin')
He had it comin' (he had it comin')
He only had himself to blame (he only had himself to blame)
If you'd have been there (if you'd have been there)
If you'd have felt it (if you'd have felt it)
I betcha you would have done the same

They had it comin' (they had it comin')
They had it comin' (they had it comin')
They had it comin' all along
'Cause if they fucked us ('cause if they fucked us)
And tried to change us (and tried to change us) 
How could you tell us that we were wrong?

You say I'm going to hell one more time!

Dope my ass! 

Guns, god and government!

Ich bin ein (H)eiliger! 

If I was your vampire--

Lyrical differences... 

Bitch... 

Dope... 

Guns... 

Kaboom... 

Vampire... 

Switchblade.
