Trapped inside
A life which is not yours
Spirits within
Causing terror, fear and darkness

Evil
Dead!
Evil
Dead!

Voice speaks out
All will die tonight
Insanity
Fills your mind, you hear them calling

Evil
Dead!
Evil
Dead!

Covered in blood
All hope is lost
Forever to rot
Controlled by the powers of the

Evil
Dead!
Evil
Dead!

    My OpinionI think that it's most likely about the 1981 horror movie "The Evil Dead".

    General Commentyou can tell this is an older Death song because of the lyrics (influenced by horror movies). but I'm not saying the song is bad actually this song is fucking good. great melodic intro and then the song just pounds on relentlessly.

    gotta love Chuck's (R.I.P.) screams and yells. raw and brutal stuff.

    General CommentThis song is about a tarot-reader who one day decides she would like to eat a shepherd. She goes to a field in the countryside where she finds an awful lot of sheep. She devises a plan which will capture the attention of the shepherd causing him to return and ergo she can devour him. That night, she creeps down to the field and eats all the sheep. She piles their bones into four piles, one in each corner so the the field has good Feng Shui. The shepherd realises the lady and the sheep's bones and runs into the field. The lady sees her chance to consume the shepherd, but her body is so bloated from the sheep that she cannot approach him to eat him. The shepherd shoots the mutton-swollen lady. Her carcass wears an expression of dissapointment that she will never be able to eat the shepherd. The shepherd gets £40,000,000,000 in compensation and goes on a holiday to Majorca.

    General CommentOn their 1992 album Tomb of the Mutilated, American death metal band Cannibal Corpse features a song called "Addicted to Vaginal Skin", in which there is an intro that uses an excerpt from the interview with Arthur Shawcross and Katherine English.
