"Burial For The Living" as written by and Chris Beattie James Shanahan....
No one can redeem themselves, no one can be saved. In a dying world filled with enslavement and endless apathy. A tortured past and not much future a tattered earth remains, destitute and alone in madness.

Burial for the living. Our earth stripped of wealth. Burial of the living. Our bodies
drained of life.

In a world full of enemies, I'm an enemy of the world. There is only so long we have to live, our dying days are spent waiting for history to repeat itself.


Our only hope is vengeance.

    General CommentThis song is about some asshole who raped Jamey's (lead singer of hatebreed) mom. And this song is pretty much about Jamey getting a hold of him and killing him, and he will eventually die, a burial for the living.

    A tortured past
    and not much future
