I was not born, I was hatch
From lava, to pupa, tank, to coffin
Tearing affection I showed with my teeth
Crawled from the egg to feed of mothers frustration
Hell was made flesh and bred with goats

Allegiance spawned to replace us in face and name
The kingdom of apathy ruled by cattle
Fuck, scathe, destroy, burn
What foul majik is this? Hideous and Perfect

Drowned out by children singing
We are all the same, the monster in human
Is inhumane

If I gave you a pound of my sacred flesh
Would your sew closed that fucking mouth?
Always messing inside my head
All that troublesome talk just turns to wrath

If I drew a picture of what makes me violent
I'd give a shining blade as your answer
See your angelic reflection while craving
Trenches into your face

They put poison in my tank, lucid poltergeist
In the form of a child
We are all the same, the monster in human
Is inhumane

Passing my fingers past your tonsils
To retrieve your shining soul
Let the rot-red angst drip from my nails
Kiss past my teeth to your pure opal

Vile airborne demon in my breath
Past the age when you don't care anymore
Wounded by the pen, conquered by a sales pitch
Her black cherry just turned sour

Cogsmen and sweaters all-reel in terror
Screaming convulsing so deranged
We are all the same, the monster in human, inhumane
Sleep now hush...

    My InterpretationI think this song is a big 'fuck you' to Angelspit's haters.

    "I was not born, I was hatch
    From lava, to pupa, tank, to coffin"

    This beast/monster/anything is a personification of Angelspit itself.

    "Tearing affection I showed with my teeth
    Crawled from the egg to feed off mothers frustration"

    This describes the pure anger and power in Angelspit's music. A lot of their songs seem to be based on Zoog and Destroyx's own frustrations, which sort of explains 'mother's frustration'.

    "Hell was made flesh and bred with goats
    Allegiance spawned to replace us in face and name"
    Possibly about selling out? These lyrics kind of remind me of KMFDM...

    "The kingdom of apathy ruled by cattle
    Fuck, scathe, destroy, burn"
    The 'kingdom' is made up of Angelspit's haters.

    "Hideous and Perfect, drowned out by children singing"
    I think this is just to add to the atmosphere. It's still an awesome lyric. Or it could be about how immature and unnecessarily loud some ‘critics’ are. XD

    "We are all the same, the monster in human
    Is inhumane"
    Just because you give your destructive criticism, it doesn't mean you're better (or worse) than us.

    “Sleep now, hush”
    ‘Stop wasting your energy’?

    “If I gave you a pound of my sacred flesh
    Would you sew closed that fucking mouth?”
    If Angelspit tried to share their success with a hater, would they shut up?

    “Always messing inside my head
    All that troublesome talk just turns to wrath”
    As the haters continue, Angelspit will be motivated to do more.

    “If I drew a picture of what makes me violent
    I’d give a shining blade as your answer”
    Perspective switch — to a hater, amplifying the pointlessness of their ‘bad reviews’.

    “See your angelic reflection while carving
    Trenches into your face”
    Really, I don’t know about this one...

    “They put poison in my tank
    Lucid poltergeist in the form of a child”
    Whatever conspired to make Angelspit go down has failed.

    “We are all the same (deranged)
    The monster in human is inhumane”
    Just one extra word can change the meaning — Angelspit’s anger is similar to the hater’s anger, only they have more reason to it.

    “*creepy whipering*”

    “Passing my fingers past your tonsils
    To retrieve your shining soul”
    YOU WILL BE ASSIMILATED. YOU ARE ONLY DELAYING THE INEVITABLE. Sorry, couldn’t resist.

    “Let the rot-red angst drip from my nails
    Kiss past my teeth to your pure opal”
    Hater’s perspective. Maybe. I have no idea what the second line means. Maybe it means they’re either warming to Angelspit or they’ve stopped hating them.

    “Vile airborne demon in my breath
    Past the age where you don’t care anymore
    Wounded by the pen, conquered by a sales pitch
    Her black cherry just turned sour”
    Angelspit, here referred to as female, has sold out in an alternate universe! Ohmigod!

    “Cogsmen and sweaters all-reel in terror
    Screaming, convulsing, so deranged
    We are all the same
    The monster in human: inhumane”
    And then Angelspit decides against their changes and becomes even more awesome than they were before.

    Oooooor....it’s just a really cool creepy song. I'll, uh, let you decide for yourself.
