Track Name: Torn
The walls rush forward, the vice is thirsty
Tied down, strangled from the inside
Embers bursting from the marrow
The tide laps hungrily at your neck

You lay upon the rack
Your breath ripped from your chest

Shaking hands, twitching fingers
You feel the blood start to boil
Bursting the seams into ribbons
Chomping gashes on the bit

You lay upon the rack
Your breath ripped from your chest

It splinters beneath your skin
Festering, feeding
You lay yourself into white
As it bursts from your pores
