To me this song can only be classified one way: stifled chaos.
At first listen, I thought it was one of their most accessible songs, and to anyone else, sure; it's easily their most accessible, considering their usual approach to songwriting. But take a closer listen, and you'll see that the chaotic element this band tends to employ is not totally lost. At :43, for instance, you hear feedback that cannot possibly be accomplished without the distortion on the amps turned up to, or almost to 10. Then when the strangely phrased palm muted 2/4 (?) section comes in, you can hear just how dense the song's musical intention is.
It's quite distinct and beautiful.
And here are the lyrics.
I peel back the lips, rip out my hair and nails, pull my skin off in strips, and shatter my teeth. Split the eyes one by one, cut off the fingers, remove the bones, swallow the heart and crush the lungs. Now burn whats left of me and say the name, I'll love you forever.
