Lying there, I give you thanks for your skin
Now yours was not a wasted life
I compare your pelt to the rest - oh, such a fruitful night
"I am not a believer in your pop religions
I have found my saviour, and he speaks within me"
In the, darkness, humans indecipherable, it helps my cause
Death - once haunted me,
Death - it raped my life - thoughts of it strangled me
Now - I've seen the light
Now - the "lord" decides - he told me the secret of "life...
Skin Coffin - wrapped in skin, freed of sin
Skin Coffin - my life is saved by the human dermis
Skin Coffin - I shall be eternal.
I have nightly missions, must complete my coffin
Sewing skin in daytime, and removing the hair
Night is fast approaching, now i must make haste
Take my hooks and cleavers, and my knives and scissors
In a surgery bag, leave my morbid workshop
I like them young, around twenty years old
more flesh - less time
Follow them to their home (if alone) their skin so ripe
Give them time to settle in then I strike
Door unlocked see their face look up in painful fright
Hook through the head, wait for death, and then I start to slice.....
Twitching - each time I hit a nerve,
I'm tearing - through flesh
Bleeding - the blood it lubricates my knife... knife!
Body stripped, flesh bagged up, onto another strike...
And so each time mortal fear subsides
As I know I'm going to be here for all time
For to die in my coffin will eternalize life
Reborn - in skin - to live - forever

    General CommentIt's about a man who goes around, kills people, and cuts their skin off. Nice song.

    General CommentIts about a psychopath who murders people and skins them to make a coffin for himself as he believes that this is the way to have eternal life and thus he regards religions today as false faiths. Which they bloody are.

    General CommentYtokes, are you Australian, by any chance? Couldn't help but pick up that "bloody" in there. Australia's an awesome country, and as far as I'm concerned, these guys are from the most insane island in the country.

    Psycroptic really know how to make weird metal. The vocals in this song are so strange. I wouldn't change a thing.
