3rd Verse 
w/Rhy Fig 4 (3 and 3 quater times) 
 
Pumped with fluid inside your brain. 
Pressure in your skull begins pushing through your eyes. 
Burning flesh drips away. 
Test of heat burns your skin, your mind starts boil. 
Frigid cold, cracks your limbs, 
How long can you last in this frozen water burial 
Sewn together, joining heads. 
Just a matter of time till you rip yourselves apart

4th Verse 
w/Rhy Fig 4 (3 and 3 quater times) 
 
Seas of blood, bury life. 
Smell your death as it burns deep inside of you. 
Abacinate, eyes that bleed. 
Praying for the end of your wide awakw nightmare 
Wings of pain reach out for 
His face of death staring down, your blood's running cold. 
Injecting cells, dying eyes. 
Fedding on the screams of the 
 
 
  mutants he's creating        Pathetic    harmless   victims     left
