"Trephination" as written by Robert Conrad Flynn, Ahrue Luster, Adam Duce and Dave Mcclain....
I used to want to take a
Drill to my head
Let the pain out of the hole
I used to want to cut the
Veins in my neck
Cool the blood boiling my
When I wondered, why my
Daily headaches thundered
Tried to buffer, pushing
Down the pain I suffered
Mutilated, feeling so
Cannot wash the dirt off
Underneath my skin

There was a part of me left
Far behind
When at the age of five
Years old
I had my innocence taken
From me
Emptiness would fill the
Now a second grader
Thinking why I don't feel
Why I'm filthy, why the hell
I feel so guilty
When drawing stick men
Of pornographic men and
Thinking all the time
There's something wrong
With me

Everyday for three years
From dawn 'til dusk a
Would take me and break me
And it'd cripple me so
Much that
In dreams, it'd seem, with
A hole in my temple
That I could probably make
My headaches finally go

The enemy inside of me
Won't let me free
Wants me to bleed

And after three years now
My headaches wear off
For reasons not quite to
Me known
The acupuncture needles
Sticking my skin
Pushed them down as far
As they'd go
But now I'm older and now
Inside my anger smolders
From depression, to fighting
Taking out my vengeance
Consequences, now I'd
Question during sex if
Is this how it fucking feels
Or am I faking it ?

No longer the child that
You left there at the bart
I'm now at 17, left in an
Empty blackness
On drugs, with thugs, and
Thinking "Goddamn ?"
I'm ending up in a failure
In the gutter passed out

This enemy inside of me
Won't let me free
Wants me to bleed

Now I'm older and in this
Man an anger smolders
Now I'm thinking a hole in
You is what I'm seeing
Your depression, is the
Dent I kick in you in
Consequences are the pain
I'd give to you

I know that I'm dreaming
But in this dream I go in
Go through it, and end it
And though I'd never do it
I'm killing you, hand on
The trigger pull it
Your final thought'll be a
Bullet in your fuckin' head

This enemy inside of me
I'm now killing
To make me free

    General CommentI think Robb Flynn is talking about trephination in terms of wanting to let out his rage inside him, from being abandoned at birth and getting into all kinds of bad shit growing up, and if literally drilling into his own head to do it is the only way to get rid of the bad part of him then so be it...

    General CommentSong's about how he was molested as a child, and how he's been trying to figure out what's wrong with him. He realizes though that nothing's wrong with him, and that the man that molested him was wrong.

    General Commentsong is about the consequences after he was abused as a child,and the pain he grew up with, that's turning into pure rage and will of revenge. The following song-Deafening silence,is kind of a continuation of trephanation,and it's again about the pain.

    General CommentThis song is laced with rage, he does want to and IS letting the rage out. It is one of the most honest forms of expression and writing I have read. Brutally fukkin honest. I have lived a similar life.
