"Ribcage" as written by and Don Clark Ryan Clark....
All hail the newborn sin
Reject the boundaries and soak the cancer in
Hope kills the filth you crave
So bleed the truth out and fall into that grave
Uphold the brand new sin
Accept the failure and refuse to rise above
Break through the ribcage
And tear the heart out from everyone you love

Over and over again
We'll bury the shame underneath the lies we breathe
Over and over again
We'll carry the blame for the hell we can't leave

Show me
The path that leads into your mind
Release
The thoughts you locked deep inside
Show me
I'm the one who knew this pain
Release
Before you fall into this again

Behold the loyal slave
His rotting shell now a tomb where death can play
See how his pride caves in
Alone he fights to stop this dark decay
Feed, feed the lust you need
And fainter grows each plea from the skies above
Break through the ribcage
And tear the heart out from everyone you love

Over and over again
We'll bury the shame underneath the lies we breathe
Over and over again
We'll carry the blame for the hell we can't leave

Show me
The path that leads into your mind
Release
The thoughts you locked deep inside
Show me
I'm the one who knew this pain
Release
Before you fall into this again

Building a life out of all that you hate
We see through the front you tried to create
The world you hoped for was only a fake
And just like the maggots you made this way
I know

    General CommentIt's about getting caught up in one's addiction so much that it begins to hurt not just him or her but those around as well.

    “Ribcage” is a song about addiction and the vicious cycle that we put ourselves in when we become addicted to something. Whether it’s alcohol, drugs, pornography, or anything else, these things are killers- and not just to the individual. This song explains what it does to the people that you love when you allow these addictions into your life. The line, “Break through the ribcage and tear the heart out from everyone that you love” shows how the addicted will destroy anything on their path of addiction, even the people they love the most.

    “Feed, feed the lust you need, and fainter grows each plea from skies above” is referring to God’s voice in your life, and how His voice can be overshadowed by these sins when you allow them to consume you.

    Don’t you know that ever since antiquity, from the time man was placed on earth, the joy of the wicked has been grief and the happiness of the godless has lasted only a moment?

    General CommentI think it's about when somebody is hopelessly adicted to whatever.

    And like whenever he tries to stop he gets back into it again.
