"Cannibal Song" as written by and Al/barker Jourgensen....
Dehumanize
Lobotomize
Thrown into a cell
Swallow your pride
In an infant mind

Thrown into a cell
A punishment fit
For a crippled mind
Don't do that to me
Criminals, sodomites, all laughing at me

Life is hell
Forever fighting
A deficient mind
We're all left alone and poisoned
A sickening trap
A sight worth seeing

Dehumanize
Lobotomize
Thrown into a cell
Swallow your pride
In an infant mind

Don't do that to me
Don't do that to me
Force breaks our back
Time preserves, fearfully

You know what I said
Hideous and strange
Thrown into a cell
A punishment fit
For a crippled mind

    General CommentThe bass in this is similar to Sanctified by Nine Inch Nails. I dont think either artist ripped the other off given that the albums were released within amonth of each other, I just think its interesting how similar artists have similar ideas around the same time.

    General CommentIt sounds to me like a song about someone stuck in a prison and how the place seems to consume him.

    General CommentThe samples of this song are from Hellbound: Hellraiser II. Yes I think the song is about this film too. Medical horror, psychiatry, crazy and sadistic men/doctors..., hell, ...
