Teeth nailing
Their own tongues
Anger rising up in torn lungs
Rack, shackled in torture

Severed veins reach up
In rapture

Crawl into
Nightfall
Fetuses in
Plastic walls
Black tempest
The snake
Madly scraping
Back the fake

[Rip skin
Bind fist
Infect the mother
Flick the switch
Grind skull
God’s shit
Infect the mother
Flick the switch]

Slash pretty
When she dreams
Stalking breath as leather screaming
Hail Mary
Horror beads
Eyes that cut through shadows, seething

Choke frantic
Constrain
Manically scratch off the stain
Virgin daughters
In line
Marching off to matricide

[CHORUS 4x]

    General CommentIn my opinion, this song is about wanting to change everything wrong with the world until you're content, and it all begins with matricide.

    General CommentI have a hazzy idea of what this song is about, but I'm having difficulty putting my thoughts into words, all I have to say at this moment is that this song is amazing. It's my favourite Angelspit song.

    General CommentI think it's about abortion or matricide.

    Abortion: Fetuses in plastic walls. (Implies surgery and painful removal of something. Child?)

    Matricide: Virgin daughters in line marching off to matricide. (Hate of the Mother, so the Mother was murdered and 'infected' with the child's hate.)

    General CommentI think this song is about how when a woman gets an abortion she feels really horrible about it because she feels like she's murdering it. I think the song is saying it's like the unborn foetus is commiting matricide by killing her with guilt. Kinda like the song Womb by Wumpscut.

    General CommentCertainaly about abortion as it mentions fetuses in plastic walls, and I think it is a religious woman who is getting the abortion (Hail Mary) as she doesn't want to go against the image of her being a virgin portrayed by her faith. So by getting the abortion she is removing the "stain".

    General Commentwhen your in the womb, at the beginning you don't really have a gender so your kind of a female by default
    'Virgin daughters
    In line
    Marching off to matricide'
    the fetus is a virgin and kind of by default female. i can imagine bleeding and torn people in line in white marching off to matricide

    My InterpretationIn my opinion the song is about a woman who was a virgin that got raped and then gets an abortion because she doesn't want anybody to find out about it. Then it hurts her so much that she's killing her own child and it kills her.

    General CommentWhen I heard the song, I wasn't thinking about abortion like everyone else is saying. I'm not really sure if it makes sense to even myself, but I got the impression of some sort of disease. Grotesque imagery and death.

    General CommentIt's about a woman who is raped and can't stand to be carrying her rapists child so she gets an abortion despite her religious nature.
