"The Mouth Licking What You've Bled" as written by and Fredrik/haake Thordendal....
I'M THE SHALLOW, THE SUPERFICIAL. I'M THE COMMON MAN. FAITHLESS, NARROW MINDED, INDIFFERENT, IMPASSIVE.
A SYCOPHANTIC LEECH. TANTAMOUNT TO DISINTEGRITY. I'M THE VULTURE FEEDING ON MALIGNANCY.

I'M THE SIN, THE LECHEROUS SNEERING AT PROSTRATION. I WALLOW IN DISEASE. I REJOICE AT DEGRADATION.
I YAWN AT MISERY. SPIT AT OTHERS HAPPINESS. AN ADVOCATE OF MANIPULATION. I EMBRACE THE SICKENING.

I'M THE LOST. I'M AVERAGE. I'M COMMON. I'M INFECTION. I'M HUMAN. I'M COMMON
A WORM THRIVING IN SEAS OF DISGUST. I'M COMMON. THE MOUTH LICKING WHAT YOU'VE BLED. I'M COMMON

I'M THE PAMPERED DEGENERATE. I INDULGE MY INCLINATIONS
THE ONLY WORDS TO MY ATTENTION ARE THOSE THAT I MY SELF CREATE
DISORDER. CHAOS.

I DEBAR ALL ORDER, REPUDIATE ALL PURITY. INFATUATED BY CONTENTMENT.
I LAUGH AT LIES. COME BEHOLD THE SICKNESS IN MY COMMON HUMAN EYES.

I'M THE GREED. THE CYNIC. I'M THE INDIFFERENT GAZE.
MENDACITY, BETRAYAL; THIS IS NOT A PHASE
EBULLIENT WITH HUMAN FILTH, HERE I AM. HERE I STAY.
FLOURISHING IN OUR DISGRACE. BLESSED BE THE HUMAN WAY.

    General CommentI think that when a person doesn't know english, they tend to learn and use relatively uncommon words, words that we never hear in common speech. i just learned around six new words from this song alone.

    General Commentintense. Somehow, I see this whole album as being a concept album. A concept album on what? Im not sure. Maybe its about the human brain(Because of the albums title, chaosphere). Humans cause alot of chaos on their environment.

    General CommentWell, an interesting fact is that the cover art for "The True Human Design" actually inspired the title of that CD (The spikes, etcetera) - Perhaps Jens Kidman is a misanthrope?

    General CommentActually they said the CD title came from the incredibly short and hectic time they had to put the album together. The song is about people taking life for granted and accepting what others discard like the filth they are. Not trying or caring and not caring to try. The average, common, infection...humans.

    General CommentI wish I'd heard of this band (and this song more importantly) when I went through my 'I hate humans' phase.
    Good song

    General CommentFor a band whose first language isn't english, they write some fucking good songs.
