"A Profound Hatred Of Man" as written by and Steven Kleisath Chad Gilbert....
If these hands would only kill.
They'd cleanse the world with its own blood.
They'd cleanse the world, if these hands would only kill.
These hand should cleanse your soul of the lust and the greed of this world.
And they call me a fool as they do so well.
Destroy the morality none have known for so long if ever at all
And I would lay down my life to birth a new generation of a righteous culture.
To a people I could proudly love and cherish.
For that's all I've ever asked for and been deprived of.

Not a tear for those of flesh
Not a stayed hand for a world that prostitutes itself.
Not a minute more of degeneration.
Words cannot express my disappointment.
Words cannot express my disapproval.

So I hate.
I hate a world that's capable of triumph.
Do I stand idly by and let this world disintegrate.
This world will pass away, and my emotions with it.
Why should I strive for acceptance and peace of mind.
A Profound Hatred of Man

    General Commentthe meaning of the song is obvious, The world and society pisses them off. The way man acts, his nature is what is hated. The hatred is for why people do the things they do and act the way they act. By the way saw them in cleveland at hessfest. they fuckin rock!

    General Commentyep, basically about being disgusted and disappointed with the human race.

    if you like bands that sing about hating the world, check out Arma Angelus...they write stuff similar to this (though, not quite as uplifting)

    General CommentNo, The Dude Abides, the lyrics here are correct.

    What has been said before as to the meaning of this song is accurate. Furthermore, the line "If these hands would only kill," tells of how he would cleanse so much of what is wrong with the world if he would kill people, yet that would make him worse than the people that he hates and is not a solution at all. So he is left to struggle constantly against the world.

    General CommentSome lyrics are wrong.

    These hand WOULD cleanse your soul of the lust and the greed of this world.

    Also, near the end before "a profound hatred of man" is said, the line goes:

    This hate consumes me, and it runs deep.
