"The Time To Kill Is Now" as written by and Alexander Webster....

We see them coming a mile away
Gathered to kill on a desolate plain
No fear in our minds
Pure hate in our hearts

Miscalculation of our strength their bane
Take us lightly and we'll make you pay
Pride left them defenseless
No mercy for humans

They rush to fight us and we stand and wait
Pulses quicken as they take the bait
Mere seconds to slaughter
We can wait no longer

Closing fast with their weapons high
Still believing it's we that will die
Now the ambush is sprung
Now they learn they were wrong
Now the killing with start
Tear the bastards apart

They thought it would be east but now their being crushed
Arrogance of power leaves them dying in their blood
There will be no mercy for these filthy sons of whores
The innards of my enemies impaled upon my sword
Many years we've waited for this final day of slaughter
Our victims are decapitated, their limbs are torn asunder
Careful preperation brought our haughty victims down
Our forces are at full strength and the time to kill is now.

Time to kill is now

Time to kill

They are all dead, It's their end today
All lost their lives in tremendous pain
No one has survived
We left none alive

Do not doubt our conviction to kill
Hate on our side we will never fail
Now the killing will start
Tear the bastards apart
Strike the enemy down
The time to kill is motherfucking now

    General CommentListen, the Corpsegrinder is a huge fan of W.O.W. there's a youtube video where he goes on a pretty crazy rant about it. So I'm pretty sure that the battle scene depicted was inspired from the game. Corpse has never said anything political, and to go the easy way and say that it's about the middle east is absolutely ludicrous. that's just my opinion.

    General CommentThis is about the war in the Middle East, from the perspective of the Mujahideen. The US went there full of pride and hubris, with superior weapons, but we're getting our heads handed to us.

    Kind of strange because I figured CC for righties.

    General CommentNOOOOOO!!!!! Again people make death metal political. it isn't at all about the middle east. cannibal corpse probably don't give a fuck about politics. They would have to be pretty liberal to think that releasing the lyrics they do is okay (which it totaly is). george has to be a lefty (listen to some of the paths of possession lyrics).

    General CommentGeorge doesn't write any songs and he didn't write this one, but this is got to be about a battle in World Of Warcraft. It even says in the Thanks section of the cd booklet "fuck the alliance" because George is a WoW addict that strictly plays on the Horde faction.

    And from my experience playing WoW, this sounds like many battles I participated in from time to time. (if you wanna get nerdy it sounds almost like a battlegrounds match like Arathi Basin)

    So I'm pretty sure its talking about World of Warcraft. lol :)
