[lyrics - Schuldiner, music - Rozz]

Go against the ways and experience pain
Leading a life which one might call insane
Bathe in the blood of the one you killed
Slaughter to survive, your needs are fulfulled

Using horrid waste
Some of them will taste
Removing deadly disease
With such primitive ease

Cannibals practising the
The art of butchery
Emotions don't exist
Pain you can't resist

Primitive ways

Conducting ceremonies to meet the ancient ones
While having an outer body experience
Celebrate the kill of the day
Then walk among the guts of the fallen prey

Using horrid waste
Some of them will taste
Removing deadly disease
With such primitive ease

Cannibals practising the
The art of butchery
Emotions don't exist
Pain you can't resist

    My InterpretationIn this song we can hear the voice of someone describing us the "primitive ways" of a different culture, a culture that sees cannibals practices as normal. In fact, they sees those practices as a part of the needs that need to be fulfilled. in this song we can also hear how this practices and rituals were done, calling it like "the art of butchery", therefore, at the level of "art" they must have been a gorgeous mix between advanced cannibal techniques and acts of religious convictions. something that we, a "normal" culture, might call insane. We have been doing worse nowadays, if you allow me to say.
