"Mummified In Barbed Wire" as written by and Alex Webster....
Wrap the wire round the neck,
pull it tight to suffocate
His mouth is spewing steaming blood
Hang the body with a cord, gag his mouth
with shards of steel
He doesn't know the pain he'll feel
Interwoven deadly spikes, tightening cables
lacerate
Assorted gashes open wide
Ruptured veins are gushing blood, scraps of
skin are flying off
The body of the helpless prey

Jagged cable binds, you scream, No escape
Metal barbs tearing at you, Rend your flesh

Tear apart the tendons,
wire chokes the victim
Shred away his features,
shred away his being
Rip the tissue from the body, Rend your flesh

Lacerate, sharp spikes rip
Mutilate, pierce the skin

Mummified in the barbed wire
Breathing stops, life expires
Mummified in the barbed wire
Metal binds as you die

Tangled in a web of pain, No escape
Blood seeps through the metal sheath,
Saw-like noose

Tear apart the tendons,
wire chokes the victim
Shred away his features,
shred away his being
Gleaming cords encase the corpse, No escape

Lacerate, sharp spikes rip
Mutilate, pierce the skin

Mummified in the barbed wire
Breathing stops, life expires
Mummified in the barbed wire
Metal binds as you die

Steel wraps your face, blood soaks the steel
Bound in wire, soon to die, life choked out,
bleed to death

    General CommentBeautiful lyrics? Are you a murderer, these losers' lyrics are the official guide to rapists and murderers, their songs are pointless and sick. These freaks should be hung, and then thrown into a pile of shit, but they'd probably like that by looking at their lyrics.

    General Commentwhatever these lyrics are, they ain't beautiful

    mudvayne fan needs to calm the FUCK down, if people like their songs, then they're not pointless. thinking that they are is incredibly selfish. a band like these guys aren't out to please everyone, theyre only there to see the effect that their songs have on people and to see whether they can make any money out of it.
    i find the thing to do with cc is just listen to it, then it all comes together and makes a feasible piece of music.

    so yeah keep that in mind =]

    General Commentmudvaynefan66 you are a jackass, dont look up lyrics to songs you dont like. I listen to cannibal corpse and so do the rest of the people here so go listen to gay ass nu metal like mudvayne cause it wont bother me and you wont see me commenting about it. If you ask me, you deserve to be hanged for being such a fucking douchebag.

    General Commentjust listened to this song-Cannibal Corpse rules at the grotesque, this movie would be great to a horror film like Saw

    for those who find these lyrics disturbing, do you listen to death metal regularly?
