In this chasm lying broken
Is a child charred inside
No more is there any hope
Shattered bones bloodied scars
Deliver me towards the soil
Close up the sun grant me rest
In worms coil
It's so beautiful
World outside of this cell
With a somber gaze
I take in what will never be

Prayed to be free
Broken on my knees
God won't appear
When all light dies
It's my only wish to die
Free myself from your reign of terror
So many times swear I died
Why won't the blood loss kill me
Deliver me towards the soil
Close up the sun grant me rest
In worms coil
It's so beautiful
World outside of this cell
With a somber gaze
I take in what will never be

Make me swear if I see your face again
I'd make you pay for the years of abuse
Fuck you
Tie you up make you bleed tear you apart
Limb from limb so many years I've held this in
I want to take your life
Make me swear if I see your face again
Tie you up make you bleed
Just like me

    General Commentto me this song is about somebody who is constantly being totured and wishes nothing more but for death to come to free him from the pain. he dreams of being buried and free from pain but everytime that darkness falls he does not see God. This causes him to lose any hope that he had as he continues to swear he should be dead yet he continues to stay alive. so he turns his attention to his tormentor and swears revenge to do upon him as his tormentor has done to him as that hatred is all he has left.

    General Commenti thought it was about someone who was trapped in what he considered hell. and he can see a world that he much better then where he is now. realizing he can never enjoy this paradise he sees, he wants the torture ended

    General CommentThe guitar riff in this song was also used on "Like Light to the Flies"

    This song is about a broken down child waiting for God to save him from the misery he is being put through, but then realizes that there is no god.

    General Commentit's about someone trapped in a holding cell obviously. talking about how he gazes at the outside world and how beautiful it is. at the end where he's talking about killing "you", i think he must be talking about the person that put him in solitude.
