"Devoured By Vermin" as written by Rob Barrett and Alex Webster....
Ravenous waves attack,
drawn by the scent of life
Fever for our blood

Instinct rules this mass, ruthless living sea devouring

Countless vermin gnashing at my face
Tear meat from my skull
Swarming, rabid, features are erased
Unrecognizable
Body covered, rat filled innards
Shred internal organs
Heart and lungs consumed from inside but my pain doesn't end
I have not died

[Chorus:]
Devour, cesspool of vermin
Devour, bloodthirsty rabid
Devoured by vermin

Resistance now gives way,
the rodents freely feed
Tearing at my skin
Muscles are exposed, shining red with blood
Meat that they seek

Crawling rodents gorging on me
Repulsive starving droves
Shredding, stripping, consuming all I was
Tissue pulled from bones
Dying slowly, feeling every fang
Shock has yet to come
Scavengers tear out my eyes
My pain won't end, I have not died

[Chorus]
Devour, cesspool of vermin
Devour, bloodthirsty rabid
Devoured by vermin

Ruthless gnawing vermin, feed
Cleaning off my bones while I breathe
Stenching greasy rodents, swarm
My body is losing its form

[Chorus]
Devour, cesspool of vermin
Devour, bloodthirsty rabid
Devoured by vermin

    General CommentInept, you are wrong. Their lyrics have nothing to do with anything real, they have no hidden meaning. They just like to write lyrics about cool things, like ruthlessly slaughtering everything in sight. Cannibal Corpse has the best lyrics EVER.

    General Commentyeah guiffporn i can understand why you would hate it if all you're used to hearing is rap or whatever bullshit MTV is selling these days. try listening to real music sometime and maybe you'll be a little less ignorant. oh and if your friend is trying to get you into real music and you couldn't handle it then you're the one that deserves to be kicked in the penis. oh wait i forgot you don't even have one.

    General CommentAre you following me? you seem to be responding to a lot of my posts, I think you are a bit keen on me, I'm flattered.
    It seems funny to me that someone with a metallica (the worst bunch of sell outs in the world) song title for a name is preaching to me about real music.
    I listen to real music, not that you would know what that is, if you are listening to this stupid horse shit.
    Do the world a favour, stop thinking about my penis and go listen to Killswitch Engage, Slayer, Death, God Forbid, Dismember or anything that isn't Cannibal Corspe, because they are shit. After you have listened to those bands feel free to kiss my ass.

    General CommentJust so you know, dumbass, Master of Puppets came out before Metallica sold out. And what the fuck are you talking about, "I think you are a bit keen on me. I'm flattered." What are you, some sort of queer? Since someone is responding to your dumb posts you assume they want you? You are one desperate loser. And you have the word "porn" in your username, so that confirms that idea.

    Oh and learn to spell corpse correctly dumb fuck

    General CommentI have another fan.
    I'm well aware of when master of puppets was released, it just seemed stupid to me that the guy had decided that just because I hate Cannibal Corpse, I listen to MTV.

    What other sort of queer is there, you stupid piece of shit?

    "And what the fuck are you talking about, "I think you are a bit keen on me. I'm flattered."
    nuclear assault, look up the word "joke" in the dictionary.

    General Commentokay first of all, like nuclear assault said, Master of Puppets came out way before they sold out. yes i am aware that they are sellouts now (everyone knows by now.) and Metallica is not the only band i listen to. I do know other bands, such as Iron Maiden, Sepultura, Exodus, Testament, At the Gates, Sodom, Kreator, Pestilence, Bathory, Mayhem, and Razor. Not to mention every single band that you listed. So I do know real music. and believe me i have a lot better things to do than to think about the penis you don't have.

    and i reply to your comments because everywhere i go one of your ignorant remarks is waiting there just asking to be bagged on, so i'm not a fag (sorry to disappoint you)

    oh and you responded to my posts on those Sex Pistols songs, so now whose following who?

    "After you have listened to those bands feel free to kiss my ass. " yeah right don't think so much of yourself you dickhead.
