Lyrics

1. SKULL FULL OF MAGGOTS

Lying there cold after a torturous death
Your life ended fast, you took your last breath
Dead in a grave, your final place
The maggots infest, your disfigured face
Pus through your veins, takes the place of blood
Decay sets in, bones begin to crack
Thrown six feet down, left to rot
Brains oozing black down the side of your broken neck

Skull full of maggots

They enter your tomb, maggots
Beginning to feast, maggots
Crawling on you, maggots
Now they eat you, maggots
Rotting maggots, maggots
Infesting your corpse, maggots
Parasites of the dead, maggots
Now dwell in your head

Lying there cold, after a torturous death
Your life ended fast you, took your last breath
Dead in a grave, your final place
The maggots infest, your disfigured face
Pus through your veins takes the place of blood
Decay sets in, bones begin to crack
Thrown six feet down, left to rot
Brains oozing black down the side of your broken neck.


2. THE UNDEAD WILL FEAST

Undead feast, as they tear upon, your weak flesh
Terror builds, at the thought of being dead
Prophecy, of the wise men of old
Now comes true, as the corpses break the soil
Ancient spell breaks the sleep of the dead
The dead awake, what the populace is fearing
Panic strikes as the nations run in fear
Oceans boil with blood of human victims

Suicide, the only way to avoid being eaten, by the undead
Grave yards coming alive with zombies, hungry for living flesh
Psychotic, trans-mutated corpses, upsurging the population
Sickening disaster of epidemic proportions, devouring us

Tables turn as a victim I’ve become now
State of death only waiting to return
Vital signs, that show I’m dead
This can't happen, I’m rising from my own grave
Hunger grows not nutritional but instinctual
Flesh becomes my only crave of this live
Unthinking state, a state of metamorphosis
Seeking food, to keep me dead
Degenerate, a product of man's frustration, for his terror
Insatiable, hunger for mankind, building with each kill
Seeking human victims, to meet my fill
Cannibal I’ve become, what's happened to my, brain

Feast on the corpse, suck out his brain
As its fluids drip down the drain
Chew on the bones, drink from its bladder
The vile stench, only makes me madder
In through the mouth, out the forehead
Brains fall out, skin turns red
Violent surge, a spear through the skull
Felt the urge, now my heart's full
I, crave, gore, I’ll, eat, your, guts
I love gore, blood drives me nuts
I drink blood, i don't like water
Intestines my cud, i feast in the slaughter
Twist its neck, make it crack

Suicide, the only way to avoid being eaten, by the undead
Grave yards coming alive with zombies, hungry for living flesh
Psychotic, trans-mutated corpses, upsurging the population
Sickening disaster of epidemic proportions, devouring us

Blood I want to drink, I want to suck
Brains I want to eat, the rest I’ll chuck
Bones into a spear, I’ll carve and kill
Hunger for the quest, I’ll never fill (x2)

I, crave, gore, I’ll, eat, your, guts.


3. SCATTERED REMAINS, SLATTERED BRAINS

Prepare to witness, a place of gore
Of legal dissection and blood on the floor
Carved up corpses, in the corner
Sliced up by, a psychotic coroner
Slice, dice, chop them haphazardly
Like laboratory mice, splatter brain matter
Pound on the skull, until it shatters
Hack, slice, chop, carve, rip and tear
Carving up your eyeballs, watch them sit and stare
Tear, rip, slice, carve, chop and hack, toss them into a sack

Tags on bare feet means a real treat
To the butcher of human meat
Slice the throat from ear to ear, gallons of blood, do appear
Veins exposed, torn from bodies
The most interesting of hobbies
To get paid for such a task, is more than any man could ask
Tags on bare feet means a real treat
To the butcher of human meat
Slice the throat from ear to ear, gallons of blood, do appear

Prepare to witness, a place of gore
Of legal dissection and blood on the floor
Carved up corpses, in the corner
Sliced up by, a psychotic coroner
Slice, dice, chop them haphazardly
Like laboratory mice, splatter, brain matter
Pound on the skull, until it shatters
Hack, slice, chop, carve, rip and tear
Carving up your eyeballs, watch them sit and stare
Tear, rip, slice, carve, chop and hack, toss them all into a sack

Ripping, tearing, your skin turning red
Vile surgeon, knife cutting in, chop
Evil doctor death drove him insane (x2).


4. PUT THEM TO DEATH

Evil people with evil minds
Slaughter their victims with ripping knives
They should be caught and put to death
Strapped to the chair, they should die there

Evil people with evil minds
Slaughter their victims with ripping knives
They should be caught and put to death, strapped to the chair

Blood spewing from their eyes, as you hear their sinful cries
Destroy their evil minds, we should take their fucking lives
They should be caught and punished, for what, they have done
Torture them slowly it would be fun
Kill them all, off one by one
Let them go, no, torture them slow

Fuck you, and your kind, we don't need you, or your lives
Execute, by injection, execution, by electrocution (x2)

Evil people with evil minds
Slaughter their victims with ripping knives
They should be caught and put to death, strapped to the chair.


5. BLOODY CHUNKS

Walking down the street, the smell of death in the air
What a rotting stench
My imagination runs wild at what this could be
Open up the can to discover a dead body
Or what was left of one, pieces in a bag
Blood is everywhere, what a retched sight
Cut up really small by a razor sharp knife
Lying in the garbage, no one else knows
What I have found, what should I do
Take it to the police, or make it into stew
This was an evil, committed by the insane
Looking down laughing, I am the same

The sight of death drives me nuts, I must kill
To, control my brain, swept away by my lust to cause pain
Mutilation is my only want
The evil inside me gives me the strength, to kill at will
My life is the means to cause death, in the most sinister, ways

I see it in your eyes, the fear that keeps me alive
I'll take it away, your life will end today
I'll leave you to rot, what a sick odor
Scream all you want, but you can't stop this horror

Tasting your life as I drink your blood
Ripping out your insides, chewing on your spleen
Dead or living flesh is what I crave
I'll kill someone, or eat from a grave.
