"Shredded Humans" as written by and Chris/rusay Barnes....
SHREDDED HUMANS
.
Early hours, open road, family of five-on their way home
Having enjoyed a day in the sun, their encounter with gore has just begun
A homicidal fool not knowing left from right, now has the family in his sight
Trying to perceive if he's blind or insane, he steers his car into the other lane
.
Both of them collide, expressions horrified
Head on at full speed, the vultures will soon feed
.
The father of three was impaled on the wheel, as his skull became part of the dash
His eyeballs ejected his sight uneffected, he saw his own organs collapse
His seatbelt was useless for holding him back, it simply cut him in two
Legs were crushed, out leaked puss as his spinal cord took off and flew
The mother took a flight through the glass, and ended up impaled on a sign
Her intestines stretched from the car down the road for a quarter of mile
.
Fourth child on the way, won't live another day
Fetus on the road, with mangled little bones
Little children fly, not a chance to wonder why
Smashed against the ceiling, all their skin burning and peeling
Schards of glass explode, chest and skull now implode
Corpses they've become, and graves will have to be dug
.
Underneath the wheels, burning rubber on your face
Bleeding from your eyes, the slaughtered victim lies
Knowing what he's done, he just backs up one more time
Laughing at the mess, a pile of meat on the street
.
One child left slowly dying now, arteries gushing blood
Now it's time to feed on flesh, the gore has just begun
.
Early hours, open road, family of five-on their way home
Having enjoyed a day in the sun, their encounter with gore has just begun
A homicidal fool not knowing left from right, now has the family in his sight
Trying to perceive if he's blind or insane, he steers his car into the other lane
.
The look of death in my eye
Surely no-one survive
Just a pile of mush
Left to dry in the sun
.
I see my fresh kill
Left in the road
Remains of your body
Mangled and torn
.
One child left slowly dying now, arteries gushing blood
Now it's time to feed on flesh, the gore has just begun
.

    General CommentHehe, it's funny, what guiffporn said is exactly what my first impression of this song(along with many other Cannibal Corpse songs) was: written by a 5-year-old who just started school, and when asked to draw a picture of his family, he draws pictures of them dead and bloody.

    General CommentExactly the reason Cannibal Corpse is just a few guys who were given instruments and decided to move their hands around with them... Like little children, they feel they should stand out and play around. I'm expecting a song about Play-Do by them or something

    General CommentThese losers must be rapists or somethings, they're truly sick. I haven't even heard them and I know they're music is garbage. If you want heavy metal with great lyrics listen to Mudvayne or Metallica, not full grown men writing about blood, guys and their sick childhood experiences.
