"Vortex" as written by and Dave Mustaine....
Internal combustion
Multiple personalities
Terror inside of me
A mask of silent agony
Curse the falling rain
The vortex of pain
As medieval as Merlin
A pact for power was made
Lucifer in transition
It's time the price was paid
Scorching the domain
The vortex of pain
A telestic message
Written in torment
Howl out dirges
Like the horns of Jericho
Distorted faces
Writhing in rage
Walls of purgatory
Tumble down
Endless death
The jewels of a crown

    General CommentYeah one of those fantasy-based kind of songs like aforementioned Five Magics and She Wolf. I guess you could interpret it as insanity.

    General CommentThe vocals aren't amazingly flashy in this song, but they go with it perfectly, and for that I commend Dave on the awesome vocals for this one.

    General CommentI think this is one of the best songs off CW, along with She-Wolf and FFF.

    Dave's vocal work is amazing, and so are the lyrics.

    I must admit that I can't tell what the song is about. Basically, it's a "vortex" of seemingly disjointed images with a unifying fantasy theme.
