Every day blows by in a world of corrupt addiction
With life comes pain withdrawals and deformation
Breaking the mould of human appearance
Contorting bodies damned with chemical interference

The guilty one, innocent she now cries
A life of hell, better off to die
Born without eyes, hands, and a half a brain
Being born addicted to cocaine

Living monstrosity
A freak for life they'll always be
Never knowing love or hate
Only pain the drug creates

[Solos: Murphy, Shuldiner]

Some say she's naive, she's a stupid bitch
Some say to forgive, guilty she should die

The beginning of the end begins at birth
Breeding masses of twisted screaming flesh
An example we should make out of theses creators of misfortune
A serious crime that should not be forgiven

The guilty one, innocent she now cries
A life of hell, better off to die
Born without eyes, hands, and a half a brain
Being born addicted to cocaine

    General Commentpredeadman is right on 100%. how expectant mothers take drugs and the baby comes out and its life is basically messed up. i just wish i could blare this song for all of the sluts at my school and try to get them to listen to reason.but they probably wouldn't get it because the song doesn't have any "tight beats" and the musicians don't wear "bling-bling"

    oh and a magnificent solo at about two mintues in.very melodic stuff.

    R.I.P. Chuck Schuldiner thank you for giving us music that has made us think long and hard.

    General CommentThis song simply says it all a woman who uses the drug cocaine giving birth to a baby who is a (living monstrosity). how the woman who uses it destroys the babie's life it is a freak for life and how she should die for doing that.how the woman cries for what she does but what she did can't be forgiven.

    General CommentI totally agree with masterofpuppets80 ,Chuck Schuldiner was a musicall genius, about 90% of all the bands making heavy metal today, have been inspired by Death.

    General Commentyour right on there quiffporn death metal bands today owe a lot to Chuck. its a shame that not all of them give him the respect he deserves.

    we need more musicians like Chuck in these days of shitty music (well most of it is anyway).

    General CommentAbout a coven of witches who cackle a lot. Unfortunately, one of the witches is called Wendy. So the other witches boil her and eat her. Wendy then emerges from their bellies and eats a jam sandwich. Another witch called Wensleydale buys a sheep called Sheepy The Sheep. Wendy rides Sheepy like a horsey.

    General Commenti love death, but i think this song misses the mark..it sounds great but its very one dimensional and ignorant..

    where does the father come in to the equation of blame?
    what about the people who got the person addicted to drugs?
    what about the persons parents?

    frankly i dont think that teenagers understand the power they wield

    and to top it all off..babies are NOT born addicted to cocaine, that is a fallacy
