  • Nightmare, the persecution
    A child's dream of death.

    Torment, ill forgotten
    A soul that will never rest.

    Guidance, it means nothing
    In a world of brutal time.

    Electric, circus, wild,
    Deep in the infants mind.

    Silent Scream
    Bury the unwanted child.
    Beaten and torn
    Sacrifice the unborn.

    Shattered, adolescent [sings: another child]
    Bearer of no name.

    Restrained, insane games
    Suffer the children condemned.

    Scattered, remnants of life,
    Murder a time to die.

    Pain, sufferaged toyed,
    Life's little fragments destroyed.

    Silent Scream
    Crucify the bastard son.
    Beaten and torn
    Sanctify lives of scorn.

    Life preordained
    Humanity maintained.
    Extraction termination
    Pain's agonizing stain.

    Embryonic death,
    Embedded in your brain.
    Suffocation, strangulation,
    Death is fucking you insane.

    Nightmare, the persecution
    A child's dream of death.

    Torment, ill forgotten
    A soul that will never rest.
    Innocence withdrawn in fear.
    Fires burning can you hear
    Cries in the night. Writer/s: JEFFERY JOHN HANNEMAN, KERRY KING, TOMAS ENRIQUE ARAYA
