lyrics

been lonesome two years since she disappeared
I'm at the park where she was last seen
a vast green clearing
wrapped up in maple trees
spilling the morning rain from their leaves
I used to walk here with a girl seventeen
at the time mistress of seventeen smiles sublime
with flaming locks of red in autumn
and burning locks of orange in the summertime
we were solemn and awkward that last night together she laid by my side
staring into starless skies
black as fallen angel feathers
I stared into the forest
pretending not to see the hangmen she was hiding in her eyes of serpent green
she said there was another
I refused to believe her
I'd thought we'd kiss
till our tongues tied together
all my loving memories
became scenes of frenzied slaughter
my hands became cruel talons
as they moved to destroy her
her neck broke like a toy in a careless child's grip
my tears rained down into dead eyes
and splashed upon her lifeless lips
I put her in the ground like a flower
here I am standing in that same spot today
where my angel's empty shell last laid
and as my tears began to well up once more
I see a path into the tree line
that I'd never seen before
I follow it down into a ravine
find a hole in the earth
framed in the roots of a birch tree
subtle echoes of her voice
speaking words I've never heard
but the way she hissed her "s's"
it just had to be her I smell
honeysuckle then opium
two of her signature scents
I pull aside all the thistles and vines
and mesmerized I make my descent as I crawl further inside the light slowly dies and the dirt begins
to feel like her skin I tremble as I drag my fingers down the walls caressing her sweet flesh again
I'm sliding down trying so hard not to fall
slipping on the blood that's seeping from the walls
then suddenly I'm surrounded by a thousand of her eyes bathing the tunnel in a strange green light
the eyes show me pictures like ghostly television screens all her thrashing final struggles
and her ravaged corpse serene
the tunnel is closing behind me
pressing me further and further down
I'm being swallowed by her earth
and consumed by her ground
the end is moving into sight
I gasp and I scream as I see her lovely mouth five times the size of me
her lips curl into a grin around her crooked gnashing teeth I'm pulverized and
devoured in the jaws of a girl seventeen

about

Pig Destroyer Alexandria, Virginia

PIG DESTROYER 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. These musical manifestations only serves to cement their already legendary status. ... more
