"Pariah" as written by David Randall Blythe, Mark Morton, Will Adler, John Campbell and Chris Adler....
The sore on the edge of your mouth it mirror
The ones on your arm of black tar you've known the ripping.

And I've seen you pissing your condition into the dirt.
I know you don't want to live in the dirt
You want to know nothing but dirt you know you can't beat weakness.

Kill the flux.
Stretched to breaking an obscene canvas on a stretcher of parasitism.
You piece of shit I won't why say your name but I will say this
Fuck off and die (sooner the better)

You've shot out your eyes
But I'm seeing that you cannot feel anything of worth.
Know that you've pissed life away, lost in your narcotic dreams.
Heart pumping futile shit through your veins.
Why does it bother?
I want to punch in your sunken face and see your dusty blood smear through
The air in a polluted crimson arc,
Splattering in a useless pattern on the concrete.

    General Commentallright did you guys actually listen to the song because it seems like these lyrics have been posted around on every site, and they're not even correct just the first few lines, after that it goes off into another song. He mentions "what i want you to be..." and "would i have? rip it away" and "away...", and "behind the shattered remnants of what ???..."< is the last line. this doesnt even have any of those lines, i love how people discuss whats not even there, i can't decipher the song's complete lyrics because it's hard to understand randy's vocals in this, but these posted lyrics go off wrong at "you've known the ripping" that's not even in the song, continues wrong up to "Kill the flux",continues wrong up to "Fuck off", then everything is wrong after that. I'll take my time off another day to post my suggestion on the lyrics but just letting you know these are wrong.

    General Commentthis is such an amazing song... so hard and the riff in the middle and the end is just insane. the lyrics are a lot of fun too. the line "fuck off and die" seems to basically sum it up. a pariah is a social outcast/ an untouchable. this song kicks ass

    General Commenta pariah is a social level in the cast system in india, and it means untouchable
    pariahs were considered to be inhuman, and thus, if you were not a pariah, you were expected to basically walk all over them, and were expected not to be kind to them at all

    i think what this song is talking about is catching a v.d. from a needle, and then making him a pariah,
    or "untouchable"

    General Commentummmm
    it seems to me, could be wrong, but i think olbaid665 is right. Its about a person who got a diseise from a needle and now he/she is running back to the speaker for help and he is just telling him/her its your damn fault, you shouldent have messed with that stuff.
