Liner Notes: 

This song by dsweidel stood out to me. I interpreted Deanna's lyrics from the perspective of stepping into the shoes of a bully. We all know one. Her original lyrics were from the female point of view, so "bitch" instead of "dick" , hope you don't mind too much for the change ups, Deanna. Smile . Original lyrics posted below.

Deanna sez - This is fabulous! I love your interpretation. The female version is more a warning to men that she's a cold-hearted woman who will tear his heart out and squash it like a bug. LOL The music/vocals are OUTSTANDING! Thank you!!!!!!!

-------------------Original Lyrics-------------------------------------
You wanna scratch that itch
But be careful I’m a bitch
And though I hide it well
I will drag you down to hell

I’m the devil in disguise
Dressed all to the nines
Wreaking havoc in your world
Clearly ain’t concerned

CH
I’m a monster
I’m a beast
On your heart
I’ll always feast
Til you can’t take
Another bite
I’m just a bitch
Feeding my spite

You won’t escape the horror
As I cause hurt and disorder
Causing pain and misery
Making sure you cannot see

I’m a demon in disguise
Dressed all to the nines
Straight from the underworld
No I ain’t concerned

CH

I go by many names
But my pattern is the same
I’ll take just what I want
And my memory will haunt

CH
CH

I'm a beast in my own way
It's best to just walk away

Lyrics: 

Ch
I’m a monster, I’m a beast
On your heart I will feast
Until you can’t take another bite
I’m just a dick feeding my spite
Oh I go by many names
But my pattern's all the same
I’ll take what I want
My memory will haunt

Ver 1
You wanna scratch that itch
But be careful I’m a dick
And though I hide it very well
I will drag you down to hell

Pre Ch
I’m a devil in disguise
Dressed all to the nines
Burning up your world
Clearly ain’t concerned

Ver 2
You won’t escape the horrors
Causing hurt and disorder
All your pain and misery
Making sure you cannot see

Br
I go by many names
My pattern's all the same
I’ll take just what I want
My memory will haunt

Outro
You better run away
You better hide away
Its best to get away
And run, run, run
Its best to hide away
Its best to get away
You'll never escape the beast inside of me

Heavier than I thought it would be from the tags. Lyrics and music work together well. I think Peter's ending is more ominous and threatening.

I loved the surprise of it being so heavy and aggressive! I wasn't expecting that and it had hella power and it was cool that you remembered to change the perspective Biggrin although, to be fair, it would have been amazing to hear a dude singing from a woman's perspective! Great lyrics Deanna, grea transformation Peter! Epic all around you two!

Such an iconic voice... And the lyrics match the vocal feel. Definitely a good collab! Just seems so... Perfect? Like this was what you both had intended from the start? A good effect, for sure. Nice one! Biggrin I could see this going on an album, no problem.

this is some really exciting rock and roll. fast and rough and a very dfferent kind of vocal than one usually expects from this kind of a song.

Killer guitar sounds and playing. I like the energy in both the music and the vocal track. That's a cool lyric to use and suits this music very, very well.

Really nice crunchy guitars and solid rock production. Your vocals have a raw bratty character, at times it makes think of the vocalist in the band Placebo. Cool track. Nice lyrics too.
