  • When I take your flesh and lacerate you
    Exposing all your hate
    There's nothing left but lies to throw away

    Eviscerate you
    Reduce you to your fate
    Deleted and erased all your decay

    When I think of all the hell
    You tried to put me through
    It can't compare to what's already done
    It's time to say farewell
    And leave you black and blue
    When I rip you open all I'll do
    Is salt the wound

    The bane of my existence cancerous
    A tumor on my soul
    Unnecessary wart upon my skin

    Full of puss
    You're a Judas and a troll
    Lance the boil rooted deep within

    When I think of all the hell
    You tried to put me through
    It can't compare to what's already done
    It's time to say farewell
    And leave you black and blue
    When I rip you open all I'll do
    Is salt the wound

    Rest assured when I pollute you
    Your disease I will correct
    My contagion
    Only now I know the source

    I uproot you
    Lance the boil disinfect
    Pestilence of ruin's run its course

    When I think of all the hell
    You tried to put me through
    It can't compare to what's already done
    It's time to say farewell
    And leave you black and blue
    When I rip you open all I'll do
    Is salt the wound Writer/s: GARY HOLT
