A tale of torture and revenge inspired by the excellent comic Poison Elves.

Written and recorded in 2001. Previously unreleased.


My tears will run again,
What is my fear and pain to you?
As here I sit, awake
Await another blade

Here I am in chains
Down, down into my mind
Follow me and I will walk again
And with my fear, you will not sleep

I'll rise

Won't you pull these needles through
Won't you pull me through
Sew shut remembrance
Burn away my eyes

Torment cannot hold me close to you
No matter what you do,
No matter how you bind my flesh
I'm free
Cries will not escape my lips
Until your skull is deep embedded
Far beneath this bloodied floor

You'll die...
You'll die...

Light your bulb (Lie with me)
And strap me to my bed
Razors bite and
engines bright, alight
Yet you cannot burn away my rage
Poison drip may boil blood away
But my strength is gunlit bright today
Never could you cause my harm
So, holding you, I'll take you down with me
Deep into this pit you'll follow me
And you'll never get away
Deep within this pit you'll sit and watch
Show you much of hate and pain and loss
Oh, you'll never get away

(You are all I have)
