"Prey" as written by and Michael Jason/emmons Williams....
From grace she fell beneath the ashes
That forced her to her knees
Cut her open wide

To bleed her body dry of feeling
The wounds the wounds will form no scars, only memories..

Tearing at the scars, she's open wide
Screaming 'til her lungs collapse
(Inside)
Behind her cold and vacant eyes,
Her innocence that dies inside..
Dies inside!

The tears that line her face..
The anguish!
The lies she'd fed herself
Closing, loveless eyes

To bleed her body dry the feeling
Of breath escaping lips, closing lifeless eyes

Tearing at the scar, she's open wide
Screaming 'til her lungs collapse
(Inside)
Behind her cold and vacant eyes,
Her innocence that dies inside..
Dies inside!

She dies inside!
She dies inside!
She dies in

Tearing at the scar, she's open wide
Screaming 'til her lungs collapse
(Inside!)
Behind her cold and vacant eyes,
Her innocence that dies inside..
Dies inside!
Tearing at the scars and now she's open wide
A broken, bitter heart that's stained in black
Behind her cold and vacant eyes,
Her innocence that dies inside..
Dies inside!

    General CommentI guess, but I don't really see how this song is about a whore, like Shotgun Wedding..
    I imagine this song is about a depressed teenage girl who slits her wrists, kinda cliche', but the video seems to suggest this song is about an older woman who is reminiscing about the horrible life she has lived..

    General CommentI think it's about a woman who realizes the life she's lived. She realizes the pain and suffering she's caused, and it tears her apart. In the video the inner ugliness begins to show. The realization is what turns her eyes cold and kills her innocence.

    General Commentit kinda goes along the lines of rape, but it hints to looking back on the horrors of yesterday...I guess
