"In This Shallow Grave" as written by Michael Amott, Angela Gossow, Christopher Amott and Daniel Erlandsson....
Who is your god - is he not mine?
Who is your devil - are we the same?
What makes you worse
What makes me better

Never to trust again - How long have I got?

In this darkened maze
They keep me awake - they scream at night
Screams at night

Who is your master
In this shallow grave

Born to die for a lie
I have no soul - I have no pride
Genocide

Where is justice in this hell?
Where is liberty - I paid the price
My life blood runs dry
Slowly drained from me

Never to trust again - How long have I got?

In this darkened maze
They keep me awake - they scream at night
Screams at night

Who is your master
In this shallow grave

Born to die for a lie
I have no soul - I have no pride
Genocide

Screams at night
Who is your master
In this shallow grave

Born to die for a lie
I have no soul - I have no pride
Genocide

Alone in this shallow grave
I die

    My OpinionThis... song... rips... faces.... off!

    It eats picks for breakfast, it destroys elbow joints Jeff Hanneman style, it melts eyeballs and screams heads off!

    What a tune, why has noone commented? The whole album is virtually flawless....this is coming from someone who thought Doomsday Machine and Wages were average with a couple of gems (Burning Bridges being one of the best!)

    This one kicks Burning Bridges in the teeth!
