Bodyhammer Bodyhammer
Brain burn smoulder
Soft head hard shoulder

I've eaten dirt from the shakin' shiver boys
I hid the hurts and my yellow liver voice
The night stick beats the prayer and the poise
My skin flicks at the sound of my voice
Another pound "put it on the yoke"
While a miscarriage of justice is lost on the ropes

Bodyhammer I'm lost on the ropes
Bodyhammer I'm lost on the ropes
Bodyhammer I'm lost on the ropes

This is the eve of agony and ecstasy
This is the seed of terror times and tyranny my odyssey
I can do anything
This is the down of lunacy our legacy
This is the root of vacancy and bigotry

Bodyhammer
Bodyhammer
Bodyhammer
Bodyhammer

I can do anything
I can see everything
I can do anything
I can see everything

Bodyhammer
Bodyhammer
Bodyhammer
Bodyhammer

Give me the skin
Give me the trouble
Give me the skull
Give me the bottle
I can do anything
I can see everything
I can feel anything
See there before the strutting state again revealed
The oldest hate justifies and sanctifies its single aim to kill and maim
This is the eve of agony and ecstasy
This is the seed of terror times and tyranny my odyssey
This is the down of lunacy our legacy
This is the root of vacancy and bigotry

Bodyhammer
Bodyhammer
Bodyhammer
I can't think I can't feel
I can't see what the fuck is real
There's something burning in my skull
There's something burning on my skin
There's something burning in my skull
There's something burning on my skin
This is the prime of punishment
This is the time of pestilence
This is the ink inside my head
The crumb of crime from which I'm fed
There's something burning in my skull
There's something burning on my skin
This is the prime of punishment
This is the time of pestilence
This is the ink inside my head
The crumb of crime from which I'm fed
There's something burning in my skull
There's something burning on my skin
There's something burning in my skull
There's something burning on my skin

    My InterpretationI'm pretty sure it's about a collapsing society/tyranny. Here's what I picked up.

    "Bodyhammer Bodyhammer
    Brain burn smolder
    Soft head hard shoulder"

    I think that this is saying the people ruling or following the tyranny are ruthless and don't stop to think before beating anyone who doesn't surrender to their ideals into submission, or killing them. So dogmatism.

    "I've eaten dirt from the shakin' shiver boys
    I hid the hurts and my yellow liver voice
    The night stick beats the prayer and the poise
    My skin flicks at the sound of my voice
    Another pound "put it on the yoke"
    While a miscarriage of justice is lost on the ropes"

    It sounds like the ruler of this tyranny/religion is greedy, reckless, and keeps the people in line, but knows somewhere within they're doing something wrong and their society is slowly collapsing from the inside.

    "Bodyhammer I'm lost on the ropes
    Bodyhammer I'm lost on the ropes
    Bodyhammer I'm lost on the ropes"

    The ruler/citizens are lost in the crippled society that they've created

    "This is the eve of agony and ecstasy
    This is the seed of terror times and tyranny my odyssey
    I can do anything
    This is the down of lunacy our legacy
    This is the root of vacancy and bigotry"

    The society is either collapsing or growing stronger, or both.

    "Give me the skin
    Give me the trouble
    Give me the skull
    Give me the bottle
    I can do anything
    I can see everything
    I can feel anything
    See there before the strutting state again revealed
    The oldest hate justifies and sanctifies its single aim to kill and maim"

    The ruler is drunk on power, lying to themselves, and is pumped with arrogance.

    "I can't think I can't feel
    I can't see what the fuck is real
    There's something burning in my skull
    There's something burning on my skin
    There's something burning in my skull
    There's something burning on my skin
    This is the prime of punishment
    This is the time of pestilence
    This is the ink inside my head
    The crumb of crime from which I'm fed"

    The society is falling apart and the ruler is suffering from his delusion.
