In the kitchen
With a screaming triple amputee...
Its completion depends solely
On my needs...
Said amputee's stumps
Are my way of saying... "Thank you
Just for being you."
Its fear tastes better than its limbs.

Terror of morality
I draw from the slowly dying damned
Monsters live behind my eyes;
I let them out and people die.
And all the grave worms
That come for their piece of meat?
I give them dead things..
The wretched living are mine alone

Fright mounts with the body count
To which anthropomancy predicts a decline
In all of God's creation,
Can there be a lifestyle that's better than this?

I mark my territory
With their blood and excritement
And adipocere...
I can find my way in the dark;
My fulfilment is habitually necromanic
And anal abusive..
Seen through the eyes of a mortician

They've "caught" me, as they call it;
My teeth and my semen have betrayed me..
Nevermore!
Tests to gauge my rationale,
The likes of which these feeble minds have
Never seen.

Rorschach blotters,
My responses to which inspire fear...
From my lizard side,
The amoral alien speaks;
"These aren't butterflies,
I see a face I'd like to burn."

Obfuscation
Of the authorities with lies,
And my natur
Alability to charm and be me,
Or whoever they want;
I've known all minds by divine right.

    A cannibal in the kitchen with his living victim. The murder/cannibal has cut off three of the victims limbs, but what really turns him on is the victims fear. What happens now to the victim is up to the murderer.

    “Terror of morality
    I draw from the slowly dying damned
    Monsters live behind my eyes;
    I let them out and people die.
    And all the grave worms
    That come for their piece of meat?
    I give them dead things..
    The wretched living are mine alone “
    Maybe a description of the mental disease he suffers from? Schizophrenia perhaps (Monsters live behind my eyes…), but as far as I know, its not ofteb people know that they have schizophrenia.
    He disposes the corpses somewhere, or the rotten meat gets infected by the worms. What he’s really after is their fear.

    “Fright mounts with the body count
    To which anthropomancy predicts a decline
    In all of God's creation,
    Can there be a lifestyle that's better than this? “
    The more people he kills, the bigger the fear in society is
    Anthopomancy: “Divination by the entrails of human being”
    He guts his victims up and examines the organs to predict his future.
    And his in his prime.

    “I mark my territory
    With their blood and excritement
    And adipocere...
    I can find my way in the dark;
    My fulfilment is habitually necromanic
    And anal abusive..
    Seen through the eyes of a mortician “
    A bit more difficult. Seemingly he uses his victims blood and poop to, well, mark his territory, and adipocere, which is a substance (brown, fatty, waxlike) that forms on dead tissue.
    He apparently abuses his victims corpses sexually.

    “They've "caught" me, as they call it;
    My teeth and my semen have betrayed me..
    Nevermore!
    Tests to gauge my rationale,
    The likes of which these feeble minds have
    Never seen. “
    He’s caught, I can imagine the police using DNA tests of semen and marks of biting on the corpses to find him. Now they are testing him mentally, because in their words “He’s a fucking maniac”. Furthermore, he feels that he’s above them, they are ‘feeble’ to him.

    “Rorschach blotters,
    My responses to which inspire fear...
    From my lizard side,
    The amoral alien speaks;
    "These aren't butterflies,
    I see a face I'd like to burn."
    They are testing with the Rorschach test, you know, the famous one with the ink spots. He doesn’t see butterflies, he sees other things. His answers inspire fear on those testing him.

    “Obfuscation
    Of the authorities with lies,
    And my natur
    Alability to charm and be me,
    Or whoever they want;
    I've known all minds by divine right.”
    Now he’s confusing them (To make so confused or opaque as to be difficult to perceive or understand: obfuscation) or in that vein, using his charm, acting as the person they want him to be, cheating them.

    General CommentI'm the first? Holy crap!
    This song is a true Cryptopsy classic, the main riff is fucking BADASS!

    I think it's about a murder killing people, mainly to see their fear (hence Phobophile), but he gets caught (bc. his teethmarks and DNA "Teeth and seemen") and something something

    and the solo is ace

    General CommentI fucking like it even though I don't understand even with the lyrics. Bow down to Quebec Metal. Phobophile is in my opinion their best song. Also check out Quo Vadis, Quebec metal!

    General CommentDid the CD come with the lyrics or something? Because there is no way you can make them out at all. Most guttural stuff I've ever heard.

    Great song though, with a good solo.

    General CommentIt's about a serial killer (not that he'd call himself that) who torments his victims to see their fear. This here is one of the most disturbing song texts ever. Hats off to Lord Worm!

    General CommentI'd believe the schizophrenia thing, because he's not describing it as a mental illness, but he believes that there are monsters controlling him inside his head. Could be a metaphor that the monsters are his murderous desires, that he lets out.

    General Comment"Tests to gauge my rationale,

    Does not exist in the song, it goes directly from "Never seen." to "Rorschach blotters"

    It's entirely possible to learn the lyrics of the song to growl along with it, but you pretty much have to memorize it because there certainly isn't any way to understand it without having looked at the lyrics :D
