"Deathklaat" as written by and Terry Butler Chris Barnes....
I'm going straight to hell
To burn in flames with the devil
Fuck the church and that christian shit
My tombstone's carved with a six six six
I don't care about the lies that you preach
Alive to live, not to believe
In a god that I cannot see

After death
After life
In the grave
To never wake
After death
Enter life

In the grave
Into the dark
As flesh turns and rots
The blood in my veins doth clot

I'll be smiling as I decompose
As the rats eat my skin and bone
No escape when death comes to call
Inside my skull maggots still crawl
From the coffin your world looks so small
The reaper awaits us all

This is the deathklaat

After death
Enter life
In the grave
Into the dark

    TranslationFrom what I've gathered from various online sources, "klaat" or claat or klatt depending on the region means cloth/rag. The only thing I can think of is that deathklaat might mean a shroud/burial cloth in this context. Similarly, the Soulfly song "Bumbklaatt" is a Portuguese word that generally means "motherfucker", derived from the Jamacian-Creole word bumboklatt/clat/claat meaning about the same thing. The literal translation appears to be either "toilet paper" or to be etymologically derived from bumbaclot or "blood cloth" (as in the cloth used for menstrual blood) and in this context you're are saying that someone came from a blood clot and not an ovum from their mother's womb. Both Portuguese and Jamacian-Creole resources say this is about the worst insult you can say, the Jamaican ones claim you can even be arrested for saying it. As far as Deathklatt goes, I didn't have much luck finding the exact definition, only that "klatt" litterally translates to cloth/paper/rag and is used in combination with a number of other word but the lists did not include death as one.
