[VERSE1]
black office, dead paper
sacrificial sky scraper
gestate incubate dig your own grave
grinding groveling you won’t be saved

[VERSE2]
no surname
serial number
bred to succeed and plunder
cult of the worker bee deceived.
brainwash Karoshi breed

[CHORUS]
eat it maggot

[VERSE3]
head devil, slave temple
stuck inside the hate vessel
mutate deviate churning bitter
nitrate flagellate hell igniter
pact writer, rank pity
reaping execution money
feasting at the boardroom alter
carving up the slaughter

[CHANT]
want it
buy it
use it
fuck it

[CHORUS]
eat it maggot

    General Commentto me it sounds like a person who is obsessed with their job, acting as a pawn in the workplace, putting money in the company owners pocket. It makes me think of an office buidling, where all the workers have been brain washed into obeying orders; being programmed to comply. The boss, is greedy, not caring how hard his workers slave, and still paying them minimum wage, so he can do what he wants with his money, and his profit, yet the workers are blinded by this fact and they keep breaking their backs trying to make money to attain their wants, wasting their dollars on things they don't really need.

    It makes me think of The Matrix in a few ways...

    General CommentI am reminded of the movie "Battleship Potemkin" (sp?) where the workers are compared to maggots, it is a pretty famous and iconic scene, so its likely that the members of Angelspit would know of it. The maggots are shown eating away, like the workers they swarm where resources are available, eating whatever they can, not caring about anything else, how they are treated or the quality they are getting, they just pray of dead flesh.... I dunno.
