"Split Wide Open" as written by and Chris/rusay Barnes....
Melting thoughts of disintegration
Hitting deep her insistence
To mutilate her newborn infants
After giving birth her mind wasn't the same
Slowly slipping away, a state of mental decay
Family now complete
Father watches on
As mother dismembers
Her newborn son

Dissecting the specimen, split
I will explore, the body wide open
Uncover carnage within, split wide open
Virgin, untouched skin
Releasing her rage
That dwells inside
Tainted blood rushes through veins
Her body chemically changed
Love was erased, on the edge of a butcher's knife

The kitchen becomes a makeshift slaughterhouse
Every nine months she butchers one more child
Reminders of the deceased, scattered through the home

Bones and skulls of sons and daughters
Genitals ferment
In jars inside the cupboards
For father to dissect
No one will discover the murder they commit

Children used like laboratory rats
Sickening vulgar experiments
She sees what others can't
Probing the guts of her fetus
Advocation of the pain
Mutilating, draining veins

Witness the horror
Offering to themselves
Continuing murdering their own kind
Never deny this fantasy life, they enjoy
Addiction to this heightened state
Post-birth psychosis
Disjointing her own children
Form the life they'll never live
A massacre within her soul
Struggling for control

    General CommentI think they should have made it about going to the shops, to but some beer.

    You have to admit, you wouldn't have seen it coming...

    Song Meaningit's about an insane family, where the mother gives birth to newborns only to murder them afterwards, the father is an accomplice to the act, it is never explained why they do kill the children, but it's possibly because they want to explore they're insides, and because she lost her mind when she gave birth, as explained in the "after giving birth her mind was not the same" sentence
