"Hell chose me" as written by Scott Lewis, Cory Arford, Alfred Calderon, Ryan Gudmunds and Shawn Thomas Cameron....
With weapons of war in my hands I will become what begs to be forgotten.
With weapons of war in my hands burning to purge this faithless nation.
These are the eyes, I am the mastermind sent to open gods gates and tear down heaven. Tear down heaven.

You are the programed dead set to look me straight in the face and I'll tell you what separates this truth from faith. These lies I preach ever extending my reach inside your head. (2x)

And with my scriptures I will summon the serpents tongue, these words will become walls keeping angels from the light of the son. This congregation rains like cinders from the sky. The product of childhood nightmares. Empty hopes behind empty eyes.
Open your ears, hear my sweet tragedy, open your mouth and drink my sick blasphemy.

Empty hopes behind empty eyes.

Im crushing the hope of the saved. Haunted, dark and driven insane. This is my unholy rapture. Oh lord is this not your desire?

With weapons of war in my hands I will become what begs to be forgotten
With weapons of war in my hands burning to purge this faithless nation.
These are the eyes, I am the mastermind sent to open gods gates and tear down heaven. Tear down heaven.

You are the programed dead set to look me straight in the face. I'll tell you what separates this truth from faith. These lies I preach ever extending my reach inside your head.

God damn this world
God damn my life
I didn't choose hell
Hell choose me

Hell choose me (4x)

    General Commentwow i've watched these guys grow a lot since the shitty dead in my arms cd. everything's gotten so much more mature since then. i could notice in the diseased & poisoned, but hell chose me is so sick. the music has gotten more technical (thank god) but still retains the grimy heaviness carnifex has always had. :-)

    the lyrical content has grown too, even if it is still uber dark. at least it doesn't look like a teenager full of angst wrote it.

    My InterpretationI think this song is about someone who preaches about a religion but it's all just lies.

    General CommentGiven this song speaks of hell and the music video takes place in a Church, is it safe to draw a connection between the falling of the curtain just after

    God damn this world
    God damn my life
    I didn't choose hell
    Hell choose me

    that it's giving a wink at the curtain falling in the temple during Jesus' resurrection? No, I'm not a Christian. I just thought of the connection when I saw this in the video.
