I copied these verses from a song. Is there a name for this constant repetition of "burnin', glowing , smokin' etc", which gets intensified at each next iteration.

And the mercy seat is waitin'
And I think my head is burnin'
And in a way I'm yearning To be done with all this weighing of the truthAn eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth and anywayI told the truth and I'm not afraid to die

And the mercy seat is burnin
'And I think my head is glowin'
And in a way I'm hopingTo be done with all this twisting of the truthAn eye for an eye and a tooth for a toothAnd anyway there was no proof and I'm not afraid to die

And the mercy seat is glowin'
And I think my head is smokin
'And in a way I'm hoping to be doneWith all these looks of disbeliefA life for a life and a truth for a truthAnd I've got nothing left to loseAnd I'm not afraid to die

And the mercy seat is smokin
'And I think my head is meltin
'And in a way that's helpingTo be done with all this twisting of the truthAn eye for an eye and a tooth for a toothAnd anyway I told the truth but I'm afraid I told a lie

Hi.
In my language we call it 'epifora'. In English it means epistrophe.
I am not sure if it means the same or not..
http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/epistrophe

epistrophe (plural epistrophes )
  1. (rhetoric ) The repetition of the same word or words at the end of successive phrases , clauses or sentences.
Thank you , BW. "epistrophe" or "epiphora" or "antistrophe" . "parachesis" also seems to be present there in the song.(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parachesis )
