Feast your mind on this
Someone’s eating you
Your worth
At least it’s being used

All Praise The Cannibals!
The food circle
All Praise The Cannibals!
Ignore the infidels

So sink your teeth into the systems teat and drown
Quit beating your brains, because this is where you belong

All Hail The Tangible!
Our stable walls
All Hail The Tangible!
The tether to the bulls

Cut the leash and heal me
Cut the leash now kill me

And I am clawing at, I am scratching at the chains
I am the selfish beast I am
The trough is filled with deep red lips and glutton smiles
And it tastes like home
And I am one amongst the masses of the herd
My skin has been branded and burned
I am so afraid of being all alone
I am safe here, I am home
Now I’m home

Just cut this fucking leash

Raised in captivity
Force fed on my fucking knees
For the feast

    General CommentThroughout the entire song, the speaker is comparing himself to a animal who is just one amongst the herd. I think this song is about how people simply go through the motions in their daily lives without questioning larger structures and systems that seem to define and control who we are. I also think that it is commentary on the issue of humans simply being conscious animals...the speaker seems to suggest there is something more than just being the "selfish beast" that he has been convinced that he is. Yet he feels "safe" and as though he is "home" because the position he is in is all he's ever known.

    The part that may be the most confusing is the verse that begins "All hail the tangible..." I think this refers that we are indoctrinated to take things at face value, rather than to look deeper and deconstruct.

    General CommentI couldn't agree more, though I think that when it says I'm safe now, I'm home is when (if the song is about how humans treat animals) the animal dies, because it can't suffer or be in pain anymore
