Memphis Will Be Laid To Waste
Norma Jean Lyrics


Walk around the room with a glaze in your stare.
In your tuxedo suit.
I will give it a name.
Lower your defenses.

Lower your casket.
Open the door and open your grave.
Murder.
Now you're doing the waltz with your murderer.

Mediocrity is the killer.
You find yourself helpless.
Christ is not a fashion, fleeting away.
He laid emeralds in her eyes,

But I'd already tried a bracelt made of gold
And a scarlet thread around her wrist.
Everything was wrong
So we sang sentimental songs.

"Oh how seldom we belong
But how elegant our kiss."
We painted crooked lines
But danced in perfect time

To a love so much refined,
We know not what it is until
Like a dullen wine we pour into a grief
Know before but never quite like this.

All I know now is regret,
It follows like a silhouette
Along the cobbelstone behind us,
But has nothing to say except to innocently ask,

It's voice delicate as glass,
"Do you see me when we pass?"
But I continue on my way

Waltz around the room, with a glaze in your stare.
In your tuxedo suit. I'll give it a name. Lower
defenses. I'll lower the casket. Open the door.
Open the grave. Murder. Now you're doing the waltz with your murderer......
Waltz around the room, with a glaze in your stare.
In your tuxedo suit. I'll give it a name. Lower
defenses. I'll lower the casket. Open the door. Open the grave.
Mediocrity is the killer.

You find yourself helpless. Christ is not a fashion,
fleeting away. fashion...

He laid emeralds in her eyes, oh but I'd
already tried. a bracelet made of gold and scarlet
thread around her wrist. and everything was wrong so we
sang sentimental songs. Oh how seldom we belong but
how elegant our kiss. and we painted crooked lies but we
danced in perfect time to a love so much refined, we
know not what it is until like a dullen wine we pour
into a grief we know before but it's never quite like this. never quite like this.
All I know now is regret, it follows like a silhouette
along the cobblestone behind me, but has nothing to
say except to innocently ask, a voice as delicate as
glass, "Do you see me when we pass?" but I continue on
my way.

I was like 13, blasting this song and writing lyrics in math class. It's insane how I play this song and a natural smile just springs upon my face like im seeingz an old friend. Love those days bro.

Joel Randolph

This sing slaps way harder than most metal/death core to date. It is raw, emotional, it was recorded live in 1 take. It is dark, but not overly so. 10/10.

Sleep Team

@Hybrid It says it on the CD jacket. The whole album was recorded that way.

Nick Gillotti

@Hybrid You can tell by listening. When my band recorded our first studio album we brought in this song as reference for our guitars and the producer immediately said "That was recorded live".
