Within the Coffin I Lie...ALIVE!  (taglines)

Guy Carrell[edit]

  • Can you possibly conceive it. The unendurable oppression of the lungs, the stifling fumes of the Earth, the rigid embrace of the coffin, the blackness of absolute night and the silence, like an overwhelming sea.


  • Within the Coffin Lies a Man...Yet ALIVE!
  • Within the Coffin I Lie...ALIVE!
