Brought to this world to wither away
Naive about the ways of life is what they say
Millions live millions die, more are yet to come
Living skeletons - where do they come from

Born dead into this world
To starve and rot in agony
Born dead into this world
It's their choice, why can't you see

Life of misery, soon a corpse you be
As bones show through, nothing you can do

Relief does not exist
When you are born to die

Disease spreads fast across their dying world
Many cemeteries they will have to build
As process goes on for many years to come
A human waste land created when they are done

Born dead into this world
To starve and rot in agony
Born dead into this world
It's their choice, why can't you see

    General Commentwhile the other teens at my school are dancing to "50 Cent in da houz" i'll be listening to this killer song. it's about starving people and when you read the lyrics you can see in your head millions of people slowly starving to death.very vivid.

    simply brutal and crushing song. let's see you 50 Cent fans try to handle the intensity of this.

    and maybe the rich,preppy Linkin Park fans can read these lyrics and see what life would be like without their food,money,fancy cars,and expensive clothes.

    R.I.P. Chuck Schuldiner thank you for making music that has made me think

    General CommentThis song is about a political satirist chimpanzee who decides to do a new sketch in which he hitsw the prime minister over the head with an inflatable banana. Unfortunately he is ill on the day of the filming and a substitute is brought in. The stand-in thinks the banana is real and bites into it. The immense amount of helium he inhales makes him die .
