"Spite suicide" as written by and Zachary Gibson John Kempainen....
TERROR be thy name
Burning thine bridge and (heart) the same
A year to drain my innocence
And course it through your blackened veins

Oh demoness, what has our daughter become?
Trash for the maggots to eat
What color eyes should be staring at me in my dreams?

Abomination, born in this union of hate
Killed in the name of the free!

And of our son,
To the sickle he clung
A featureless face for your nightmarish dreams!

Dilate and extract
Dilate and bury it all

Mother, vampiric mistress of nightfed blood
Who pets her child's head from a grave
Demon, enchantress of evil profound
Dead and nameless
(A noose to choke the memories from me)

Addicted to those forbidden hands
Thrust deep inside her helpless hull

Scrape! scrape it all away
Vacuum these pictures from my brain
Scrape it all away

How I shall laugh once you have DIED
How I will sleep once you've been DESTROYED

Dilate and extract
Dilate and bury it DEAD

Mother, vampiric mistress of nightfed blood
Who pets her child's head from a grave

Demon, enchantress of evil profound
Dead and nameless
(A noose to choke the memories from me)

Dead!

    General CommentThere is quite a bit missing from the song.

    I actually think he is talking about abortion. He asks what his daughter has become and refers to trash, abomination, dilating, extracting and burying. In the verses that are missing he refers to vacum and scraping.
    *shrugs*
    Just the impression I got.

    General CommentTrevor has stated in at least one interview that this song is about a failed relationship he had which resulted in an abortion. He makes more than one reference to it on the album, suggesting that's it's haunted him quite a bit.

    General CommentThis is def about a relationship gone sour. He is trying to hurt his former lover with the lyrics... using their aborted child as ammunition. He wonders if it was going to be a boy or a girl, what it would have looked like had it been born ("what color eyes should be staring at me in my dreams?"). He tries to paint the child as a monster... the only possible outcome of breeding with such an evil woman. He references the abortion in "I'm Charming" as well: "Bury me deep, as I have an unborn child"

    General CommentI totally agree with the whole "abortion" thing. "abomination, born in a union of hate (killed in the name of the free). A reference to the bad relationship. Born in a union of hate. It must have been a bad relationship. "killed in the name of the free". I assume that this talks about human rights, the right to have an abortion, and how we are free to make that choice. The baby was killed in the name of all those who fought to give us our freedom. Its quite beautifully done. All black dahlia murder lyrics are amazing. Trevor is great.

    General Comment.Damn

    I'm sure that's right..
    A sour relationship, and an aborted baby that resulted from the union

    I agree with fugativemascot, on the whole human rights issue.. Since trevor does state "killed in the name of the free"
    .
    Pretty clever lyrics, I think

    General CommentTerror is thy name!
    Burning thine bridge
    And death the same

    A year to drain my innocence
    And course it through your blackened veins

    Oh, Demoness! (Oh, Demoness!)
    What has our daughter become?
    Trash for the maggots to eat?
    What color eyes should be staring at me in my dreams?

    Abomination born in this union of hate
    (Killed in the name of the free)
    And of our son?
    To the sickle he clung
    A featureless face for your nightmarish dreams

    Dilate - extract
    Dilate - and bury it all
    Mother, vampiric mistress or night-fed blood
    Who pets her child's head from a grave
    (Demon!) Enchantress of evil profound
    Dead and nameless, dead
    (A noose to choke the memories from me)


    Addicted to those forbidden hands
    Thrust deep inside her helpless hull

    [solo]

    (SCRAPE!) Scrape it all away
    Vacuum these pictures from my brain
    Scrape it all away

    How I shall laugh once you have died!
    How I will sleep once you've been destroyed!
    (Destroyed, destroyed, destroyed, destroyed)

    Dilate - extract
    Dilate - and bury it dead

    Mother, vampiric mistress or night-fed blood
    Who pets her child's head from a grave
    (Demon!) Enchantress of evil profound
    Dead and nameless, dead
    (A noose to choke the memories from me)

    DEAD!
