"World of Shit (The Promised Land)" as written by and Hal David Burt Bacharach....
Bred from the bowels
Sheep one and all
Bound by the doctrine of lies
To fucked human shit, I shout blasphemy!
As I make my way through to
The promised land

Smell of shit is so foul
Writhe in disgust
Earth heaves and death comes to call
All the waste, cling to your lie
You are as sand and the wind blows
My disgust, a fever
To kill a thousand more

Gene dead from birth
God's holy fuck
Canonized but of no use to me
Human shit, waste begone from my earth!!

Desolation, no life bodies littering
Beast of earth devour!
Cleanse this world for those who deserve

Burning cities, all is well
I remain in my conviction
As the waste in sewer flows through the promised land

    General CommentI have to admit, I'm not a Morbid Angel fan, the vocals just seem silly to me, but the guitar playing is increadible. Trey has definitly 'been to the crossroads', if you get my drift...

    General CommentThe world's greatest guitarist (Trey) and drummer (Pete) in one band. Steve isnt the best bassist ever but his lyrics are great.

    General CommentTucker didn't have a thing to do with "Covenant." This is the genius of David Vincent, who truly is Morbid Angel. When he left, it went completely downhill. A song about Ceaser's Palace? Give me a freaking break.

    General Commenthaha idiot, "Ceaser's Palace" was written by David Vincent, off the MA album Domination, in which Vincent was still in the band. Get your facts straight before you let the crap roll out of your mouth, dipshit

    General CommentCaesar's palace was about the roman's I used to think it was about religion,Where the Slime Live is an anti christian song off that same album. Domination was my personal fav then Covenant after Vincent left they did go downhill,I just bought there new album only reason is because Vincent is back and i'm a Morbid Angel purist and only Vincent will do.
