"Deviance" as written by Tomas Enrique Araya and Jeffery John Hanneman....
I embrace the darkness within
Forever serve beneath its hand
Horrid thoughts that surface to me
Ceremony bloods command
I will live through this forever
I have done the things you grieve
As you kneel before its evil
Death is here deep inside your

Skinned alive now naked
Terrorized no humanity
Seek salvation from an mia god
Empty vessels chanting for your death

Walk the streets beneath the shadows
Searching for a cryptic bride
Eat alive the conscience I hate
Without pain I watch you die
I will live through this forever
I have done the things you grieve
As you kneel before its evil
My face is the last you'll see

Soaked in blood the mask you wear
Haunting cries the dead scream for me
Staring eyes invoke no guilt
I can taste your mind your lifeless

Face the dead and dying
Feel your life drain
Through your soul
Seek salvation from an M-I-A god
Empty vessels chanting for the dead

Death is yours
Your veins have dried
Staring eyes of glass now empty
Still you speak with lips so cold
In my head I hear you cry

God is dead can't save me
Taking lives with impunity
Resurrection of a deviant Christ
Feeding hate to capacity - deviance

    General CommentThis song is clearly about Terrorism to me. The whole concept of the album "God hates us all" is about religious fanatics that spread hate instead of love. Teorrists call us "Infidels". That is what the album is called "God hates us all". God hates america.

    You kneel before it's evil. That is about people ligthing candles and praying where a terrorism attack happened. Just like in Paris or at ground zero in New York.
