"Beyond The Cemetary" as written by and Chris/rusay Barnes....
Nude and violated I raped the life from her body
Lying dead the insects bite her pale skin
My marks of torture
Left on my daughter
Body badly beaten
I remember
My ropes and chains
bruised her arms and legs
I wiped her blood on my face
her tender body I disgraced
Slow strangulation

her neck twisted and broken
Abdominal lacerations
Blood pouring from

Control of the mind
feelings left behind
dreaming inner hate
I create an alternate state of the grave
Scared to death
homicidal premonitions
horror fills you
As your soul is ripped from you
Dreaming my dream of death
I cast the spell
Intertwine your mind with mine
Dreams become reality
Enhancing the imagination
Murder is my infatuation
Killing off generations

Families torn to pieces
but the one they love
Possessed by another
My pleasure is to murder

Entering your dreams
through my spell they will bleed
Night after night
Reoccuring killings


Someone wake me
from this nightmare
I've become my darkest fear

Awaken to the sight
of your hacked up family
their spirits are trapped
beyond the cemetery

Bodies rotting, but I'm not sleeping
Scream you're not dreaming
Someone wake me
form this nightmare
I've become my darkest fear
Came to life
in my mind
A world of darkness
forever sleeping in this coffin
Eternally dreaming...

    General CommentI dont think it means anything. Just meant to get laughs from people who are down with it, and piss off/gross out the people who arent.

    General Commentyou actually think chris barnes is reading this? he left the band exactly 10 years ago and is in another big gory (kinda) metal band, Six Feet Under (i don't like them as much as corpse, tho.) If anything, you're only drawing attention to this band and song by saying it's offensive and morally wrong. (i'm not disagreeing with it's morality, tho) chill. it's just a song, and you can easily avoid the band and you'll never, ever have to listen to them again. it's not like they're playing Cannibal Corpse all the time on the radio and TV anyway.

    General Commenthe seems to be talking abt a lot of things here.first about tormenting and hurting his own daughter.in the last few verses seem to be about nightmares troubling himafter he's dead and lying in his grave,reminding him about all the people he slaughtered when he was alive.all in all, one hell of a song!

    General Commentim sure people just go through this site without ever hearing these bands and just post a meaning, reading the lyrics isnt enough, you haveto hear the song and feel the mood and intensity, live if possibe.

    General CommentI think if anyone decides to come on here and be offended and take this shit literally they deserve to have everything these guys mention in their songs done to them. No lyrics are meant to be taken literally, in death metal its just an image to fit in with the brutal attitude of the music, think about it, would singing about how your girlfriend dumped you or happiness and rainbows suit blasting, fast distorted guitars and screaming? somehow i think not. I will post this on every song to prove a point, if you dont like it you dont haveto listen to it simple as that, dont buy their records. am i right?

    Song Meaningits about a man who murders and rapes his own daugther, then he continues with other families where, he kills them, and mutilates them, the end of the song is about him suffering from his own demons, and possibly being buried alive as a revenge for the horrible murders he has commited.
