Chorus: In my house there's a room full of bodies Killing people is one of my hobbies Ev'ry once in a while I may add A fresh corpse to the room of the dead I used to bury them corpses outside After I took 'em home in the night When my garden filled up with the dead I needed something instead Chorus The garden turned into a graveyard I didn't have to think hard And up from the next murder night I took them bodies inside Chorus 'This is a short mid tempo song about a guy who ran out of space in his garden to bury the victims of his nightly murder sprees. So to get rid of the dead nonetheless, he begins stuffing them in one of the rooms of his house. The lyrics are set to an uplifting melody composed with just chords in a major key. As for the music it sounds somewhat folk or country alike. Maybe leaning a bit towards Mexican traditional music, but with a flow instead of a drive. In My House! got its live debut on June 30, 2017, although with different lyrics in the first verse, and has been on the set list ever since.' Official YouTube video: https://youtu.be/haow2WMrohE

Chorus: I was born a truckin' psychopath My cabin holds the steering wheel of death And when I see you on a hike Hitching for that free truck ride I'm the last one you will meet in life The freeways and roads are my life And I'm never done, 'cause my work will go on I pick you up from the roadside And after a while I will show you my gun Chorus I'm truckin' alone across the land And stop for some gas in any ol' town I buy my ammo wherever I can And when you leave my truck I'll make sure it's face down Yeah, when you leave my truck I'll make sure it's face down Chorus 'The lyrics to this one deal with a trucker who works all over the country and picks up hitchhikers. Soon after he displays his gun, but only uses it when the hitchhiker wants to get out. Apparently shooting them from behind, 'cause it is said that they always leave his truck face down. Musically it's a relaxed mid tempo track. It has been done live with instrumental backing on August 11 and August 13, 2010, and once or twice in September and maybe October of 2010. From the Outlawed Outsider! EP only this one and opening song In My House There’s A Room Full Of Bodies! were played live.'

Hitchhikers, people on the run from the law Prostitutes and lonely travelers They are on my list when the weekend has come When they go out with my .44 caliber The ones on my list and those that will die Won't be missed 'till some time after And I am no suspect, I'm a Family Guy In my community I'm quite well respected And my shenanigans often cause laughter But on Friday nights I'm cruising the streets At home they think I'm at a bar Who's stupid enough takes the right seat Now let's drive to your death in my car 'Being highly influenced by U.S. culture, cars play a role in many of Danny's songs. This slow one is another such example. It tells of a man cruising the streets in his car in search for solely traveling hitchhikers, prostitutes and other people that can easily be picked up. The suspected killer unfolds his murderous plans for Friday night, but claims that he is well respected in his community and refers to himself as a 'Family Guy', adding that 'his shenanigans often cause laughter'.'

The neighbourhood kids call me junior squeezer And you know kids always tell the truth Some try to resist, but the match is uneven And in the end they'll be red, white and blue The red blood in the white of their eyes Their skin will turn to white when they've died But blue is the high of the day The colour of having my way The neighbourhood kids call me junior squeezer And you know kids always tell the truth Some try to resist, but the match is uneven And in the end those kids will always lose They lose all their hopes and their fears They lose all the things they hold dear But death won't set in instantly 'Till death do us part, they're with me The neighbourhood kids call me junior squeezer And you know kids always tell the truth Some try to resist, but the match is uneven And in the end they'll be red, white and blue The neighbourhood kids call me junior squeezer And you know kids always tell the truth Some try to resist, but the match is uneven And in the end those kids will always lose 'Song about a dude that slowly chokes little kiddo's to death. He says it best when he states: 'Some try to resist, but the match is uneven / And in the end those kids will always lose'. Obviously Danny Ramirez does not condone the choking of children (in fact he is what you could call 'a protest singer'), but truth is neighbourhood kids can be pretty obnoxious pests. The intro humming melody is inspired by Roger Whittaker's Berceuse Pour Mon Amour.'

Time is near and the hour is at hand For you to understand You'll meet your end Late at night by yourself all alone Tryin' to make it home But you won't Chorus: I don't wanna torture you to death 'Cause you ain't worth my time I just wanna stab you in the back And leave you there to die My knife waits for you in the park Attack in the dark The blade is sharp Behind the trees I let you pass by Sneak up from behind And then you die Chorus 'The title (which I had since August 2010) appears to be quite sympathetic, but it comes down to the fact that the murderer just doesn't wanna spend too much time on killing another human. He waits for his victim behind the trees in a park to unsuspectedly sneak up from behind with the knife ready.'
