When you're broken from the break up,
and those cold tears smear your makeup,
and you're wishing he made sure you were dead when he left
16 sutures on your throat dear
from your left ear to your right ear.
Goes to show you you're no good at breaking it off.

"Oh Holy Grace,
they made love to your face with a boxcutter.
Now you'll croon through the cavities girl.
The ropes burn your wrists,
tape stinging your lips till you're crying out
when those phantoms they claw at your door."

Tied with barbed wire and guitar string
to a junkie's soiled box spring.
You were thankful
for the gym socks he stuffed in your mouth.
'Cause the blood soaked through the tissue
when your teeth broke when he hit you.
You denied him the pleasure he gets when you scream.

Say the words, tear the gauze,
and these bastards pay with their lives.

    General CommentWOW!! How intense! Obviously this girl is being tortured(for breaking up with her guy?). I love the part where he says she'll have to croon through the cavities in her neck. I think the phantoms clawing at the door is death approaching and she knows it.

    But this part makes me think that her torturers got the shit that was coming to them. Who knows, who knows...

    General CommentIm pretty sure this song is about being brutally raped and the feelings that emerge from such an experience (i.e. feelings of suicide and revenge)
