"Skrying" as written by Chad L. Gray, Matthew Mcdonough, Greg Tribbett and Ryan Martinie....
This puzzle's dead inside
Missing pieces growing eyes,
Mystery
Little girls severity,
Little boys begging mercy
Sticks break on me
Cost of life at 23
Price of pain a broken ring
All crimson
Melting body rubber world
Battle axe with locks of curls
Introverted

My cost, the price of a broken doll, can you
Remember that place
The place you would go to make things okay,

1000 points for insect stings,
Glue my spirit, break my wings,
Misery
Libido steams infectious whore,
Cauterize and forge the sword,
Remember killing.

Children, learning the secret knock, a nickel
To enter that place,
The place you would go to make things okay,
My cost, the price of a broken doll, can you
Remember that place
The place you would go to take pain away,

Games of passion taste so sweet
Cut his throat and slaughter meat,
My secrets.
Seven heads for seven seas,
Darkened voices plead disease
Dismembering me

Children, wrestle to seal the bag, storing it deep
In that place,
The place you would go and try to escape
Children, learning the secret knock, a nickel
To enter that place,
The place you would go to make things okay,
My cost, the price of a broken doll, can you
Remember that place
The place you would go to take pain away,

Skrying through reflections in a pool,
I see death coming, mowing down,
Do you remember the bedroom,
Was it your cell or was it your tomb,

You're living through my hell

Children, learning the secret knock, a nickel
To enter that place,
The place you would go to make things okay,
My cost, the price of a broken doll, can you
Remember that place
The place you would go to take pain away

    Song MeaningThis song has a strong meaning behind it that cannot be seen by simply examining pieces of it. Chad Grey is a great storyteller, however sporadic the lyrical content may be. Skrying, in terms of Luciferian theology, is the act of reflecting on ones self in the truest sense of the word. This song is rather scary, this is true. However, not in the occult aspect, but rather in the hidden content.

    In essence, this track conveys a sense of constriction and demeaning sexual advances. The lyrics speak for themselves in terms of this idea. "Little girls severity, little boys begging mercy, sticks break on me" this is the first sign of child molestation. He is reflecting (skrying) on the inner sanctum of his adolescence and innocence and how that was stricken from him.

    "My cost, the price of a broken doll" is reflecting the concept that a young lady (or possibly male) that was once beautiful, has been destroyed and broken emotionally by these acts. He later chimes in stating "Games of passion taste so sweet" It seems he is reflecting deeper on the emotional torment and falsified sense of love and acceptance that one experiences when subjected to this molestation, and follows with his anger towards this distrust "cut his throat and slaughter meat" finalizing his thoughts he has kept inside as "my secrets."

    These reflections are in a pool of emotion, as he states "skrying through reflections in a pool." He sees the death of himself coming in a depressive sense, pushing him to reflect on that one safe place he had, which is signaled as "the bedroom"

    Take care to read through this album, as it entails the basic structure of spirituality and emotion, as well as the ties therein.

    General CommentActually...musically this album is far superior to LD50. A lot more thought went into it. More complicated riffs and drum parts.

    General CommentGood song, excellent instuments playing (all instruments). It seems like it's about looking back at some good/safe times, because they say "that place you would go to take the pain away" and "that place you would go to make it all okay". It's kind of about finding you're "happy place", the meaning is kind of hard to describe but I basically know it.
