"This Mortal Coil" as written by and W. Steer J. Walker....
Tearing down the walls
Breaching frontiers, unlocking the gates
To a new world disorder
A fresh balance of terror, the equilibrium of hate
All flesh entwined, in the equality of pain

Archaic nescience unleashed
Entrenched, a bitter legacy
Tempered in mental scars
All flesh entwined in mortal equality

Tangled mortal coil

Twisted and warped
Tangled mortal coil

    General Comment'this mortal coil' in Shakespeare's Hamlet represents all the suffering in the world. When you shuffle off your mortal coil, you die.

    Jeff is clearly talking about how the 'new world disorder' (his opinion of the 'new world order' proclaimed by George Bush Senior when the Berlin Wall fell, will try to destroy anything in its path that stands in the way of profit-making. The only equality will be in pain and hate.

    General CommentDamn I totally agree with, Ad Nauseam.

    Trevor from The Black Dahlia, seems to have drawn much inspiration, from Jeff..
    He uses the phrase "mortal coil" in multiple songs.... and plus the band sites Carcass as one of their main influences..

    Go figure
