Delirium Trigger

Album: Delirium Trigger (2000)


  • This song appears to be about an abused child. The main chorus implies a troubled parent's need to beat their child in saying "I don't feel alive when you're cut short of misery." The child is then portrayed by the parent speaking and saying "Will you pray it be the end? Give a look surprised wide eyes to see me." The child is terrified by the parent and still gives a look of shock each time the parent begins to beat the child. >>
