1.
Stench of solvent Covers stench of rot I didn't even recognize her Like a painting A masterpiece torn to pieces And set to flame Her own cells Turned on her Her skin Is yellow Like the wildflowers In July She asks me how she looks And I tell her That she's as lovely as the vultures As pretty as the larvae of the fly Pretty as the larvae of the fly
2.
Doomed lovers in a free fall Together till they crash to the ground I long for my sweet disappearer As this avalanche of night Slides down Black haired angel by the bonfire With alien eyes divine they flicker a moment In the flames then follow the smoke Into the sky It's like losing a limb This agonizing goodbye My dreams of her are violent All swirled in red Like the storm in Jupiter's eye All swirled in red Like the storm in Jupiter's eye

Deathtripper 01:04
I hold your hand in mine The rest of you is scattered All over Your rib cage is open Like a great white's jaws Your legs Look so sexy out of context Out of context
4.
Increase the dose diminish the high A smile is a pipe dream suffering aged like wine Aged like wine Coughing up blood With my mind on fire Juggling switchblades on a high Tension wire I don't have any scars Only dormant wounds That crack like fault lines I only have Five thoughts anymore And four of them Are of you Body bursts and leaks Like a trash bag Into the gutter And the grave And the grave
5.
Soul wreckage burns On the road to the cemetery The only road there is a Dam of corpses Is holding back The Potomac And they're still throwing bodies on A gaping hole Has been torn In reality And I swear I can see right through
6.
Got no use For psychiatry I can talk to the voices in my head for free Mood swings like an axe Into those around me My tongue is a double agent
7.
Phantom Limb 01:37
It came to me in my sleep Green light spilling from its mouth All over me Laughter that sounds like metal scraping Eyes like a pair of atoms splitting Face like a fun house mirror twisting I put my hand Up to the wall and it passed right through I put my hand Up to the wall and it passed right through You should've been there You could've come with me
8.
Loathsome 04:04
Let the dead rot Where they fall You know sometimes I need a crutch Just to crawl So Loathsome So loathsome down inside My heartstrings They ain't yours to pull Cops in latex gloves trying To search my skull So Loathsome So loathsome down inside I feel So loathsome Down inside Rancid junk-thought Elephantitis of the mind Rancid junk-thought Elephantitis of the mind This is my Escape art Exhibition This is my Escape art Exhibition Escape art Exhibition Escape art Exhibition And I'm never coming back
9.
Beliefs must evolve or face extinction Shed dogma like snakeskin No need for confession Or astral projection I survive on the primal instinct within Even a loving God Is still a master Even a loving God Is still a master Spare me your fear All these childish superstitions I've spent decades Trying to purge your swill From my system God is in the mirror Not hiding in the skies This heathen temple Will stand tall Till the day I die Till the day I die Till the day I die This heathen temple will stand Tall
10.
Her touch is electric caresses like storms Pleasure at the threshold I see everything sour before it's ripe Tomorrow she'll step on that plane and disappear But tonight her lips are real And kissing Like a head on collision
11.
Alexandria 03:03
Strange tension in the harbor tonight I watch the rich girls down on Duke St. pass me by That pass me by Now the nausea's In my guts And I'm wrestling with doubt The kind you get when your heroes Sell you out And as I watch the drawbridge come down There's mass extinction On my mind Extinction on my mind Extinction on my mind Extinction On my mind Human cruelty stains my thoughts jet black I've got this feeling Like things have gone too far and now we can't get back
12.
The girl in the Slayer jacket Gave me my first kiss When I was in the seventh grade She used to smoke Weed with my older sister In the woods behind the arcade The woods behind the arcade She had thick skin But if you cut her The wound Would bleed forever She would bleed forever She She would bleed forever She hung herself From an overpass Down in McLean Where the old trees loom (her parents tried to sue Slayer they blamed her) Her parents Tried to sue Slayer They blamed her boyfriend and PCP But the truth is her eyes Had been dead since she was five She just hadn't disposed of her body
13.
I never could escape you Your wings forever In silhouette of the sun Climbing The mountain She's wearing her latest victim on her arm Hurry up My disguises don't last long They don't last long Scan the room for exits Granite pulverized in a clenched fist We're making out in the landfill splashing around Waist deep in ash Waist Deep In Ash And in my crawlspace of a heart There's no rancor Like rats Like rats There's rancor Like rats Like rats
14.
Shannon's got an eye For shallow graves And a stomach That can handle all the gore Her sister Lucy's in charge Of selection (of selection) Seduction (seduction) And complete lack of remorse They'll take his wallet Down to the mall For the jewelry And the perfumes they adore Then they'll drive Out to Route Five And leave his carcass by the reservoir They got cornered last year Down in a Nashville hotel The girls Had to chop a whole S.W.A.T. team to pieces

about

Almost three years in the making, Pig Destroyer's new album Phantom Limb furthers the enigmatic band's nihilistic, shock and awe attack. PD boil metal down to its muscle, sinew, and bone - razor-sharp guitar, percussive pummeling, and a lone, stark howl - and use them to commit a vicious assault. The lyrics paint loathsome, frightening images of pitch-black self-hatred and the frailty of the human experience. With Phantom Limb, Pig Destroyer provide a musical manifestation of the violent experience of the human animal, and cement their already legendary status.
