New Millenium Cyanide Christ Lyrics

I'm a carnal, organic anagram. Human flesh instead of written letters.
I rearrange my pathetic tissue. I incise. I replace. I'm reformed.
I eradicate the fake pre-present me. Elevate me to a higher human form.
The characters i am, made into a word complete, then i'll be the new norm.

Self inflicted fractures. I replace my bones with bars;
Aluminum bleeding oxide; the drug of gods into my pounding veins

(a human puzzle for all to scorn. No face. No back. Directionless.
My scarred edition i'll display; the organic word for nothingness)

My receiving eyes exchanged with fuses; blindness induced to prevent destruction.
Ceramic blades implanted past my ribs to save me from the dues of inhalation.
I tear my worldly useless skin. Staples to pin it over my ears.
Non-receptive of ungodly sounds - i disable the audio-generators of fear.

Hexagonal bolts to fill my mouth, sharpened to deplete the creator of all violence;
Without speech there will be no deceit

(my feet i crush. The flesh i cut away, so as to not produce the sound of their presence on rotten ground)

Baptized in vitriolic acid. A final touch. A smoothing of features.
Completion of the greatest art; to cast the godly creatures.
Humans, once astray; made divine. Stripped of congenital flaws.
We're incandescent revelations in a world of darkened forms.

(confide in my new age dogma. Swallow the indoctrination. You'll come to love it here,
The suicidal atmosphere. Let me into your common mind. I'll plant my thoughts into its soil.
Walk among us self-made gods, deified through the pains of self torture)

Disciples, come join with me to save a failed humanity. Follow the god of cyanide into the new eternity.
Behold; a sacrificial rase a cleansing worshipping of pain.
The new millenium christ here to redeem all from lies

(i've come to save you all. I've come to light your way)

I'm surprised nobody has considered the possibility that Marshall White from the Heaven's Gate cult may have inspired this song. He and some 38 of his followers committed suicide together by ingesting cyanide and arsenic. One of the former cult members gave an interview in a documentary by Inside Story, believed White to be a "20th century Jesus" (around the 15:00 mark on a youtube video called, "Heaven's Gate Documentary").

@D7K I was thinking Jonestown but yours might work even better

why in the hell was this band not featured on this website before i put it up here? Shame on you people!seriously though, I dont have the time, so please contribute more lyrics. This band defintely needs more recognition. Anyways, you could see this song for what it sounds like(a human replacing his body parts with those of a machine in order to be the savior for this generation, sort of using things that are of this era, such as replacing the crown of thorns with blades and the like as tools of causing pain), but I see it as a song against religion. It suggests that biblical figures and anything related to religion plant ideas into peoples heads, kinda like brain washing. Cult leaders do the same thing. Most sensible people know that cults are absurd. Shouldn't organized religion be viewed the same way? I think so. At least thats my view on this song.

To me, this song is about making the perfect human, while demonstrating how monstrous and far from human 'perfection' can be. It shows that flaws are what makes us human.

They take away everything that makes a human. The organs, the skin, the senses, the ability to fear and, most importantly, the ability to lie. "Without speech there will be no deceit". Fucking goosebump line, followed up by that giant, break-down-your-door riff.

It's perfection, except its not. I guess Meshuggah's trying to make fun of how extreme religion can become and how people will follow anything if brainwashed enough, regardless of how immoral it originally seems.

My Interpretation

A-fucking-masterpiece.

I think this song was made for joggers, it features a remarkable euphoric revelation, kind of like when you get a runners high. The song is probably about nothing really. About how we are nothing in paticular, like blank canvases that we filled in or some shit.

I totally agree.

Meshuggah is a fucking awesome band. This song's lyrics are amazing. This is the kind of musical talent that comes from Sweden and we dont even if give it any recognition. Come on!

This band IS awesome. Thornendal is an amazing guitarist, he takes the simplest riffs and makes them so unbelievably heavy, and then adds crazy 4 finger tapping solos (or something) to them. Future Breed Machine is my favorite Meshuggah song, so I'll put the lyrics up.

Not only does this band have intense guitar work, but the rhythm is somthing else. They actually change their time in songs, sometimes the guitars going at a different time than the drums. its just crazy shit. These guys are geniuses.

Great! A metallic masterpiece. Heavy, thrashing, but still meaningfull. Too bad bands like this get pushed out of the limelight cuz of wannabe's like Slipknot.

Meshuggah is amazing. No more to it.

I love Meshuggah - For me, (and it's hard for me to say because I'm Catholic) this song is about how religious figures such as Christ gradually become less and less "human" and moreso "divine" over time through distortion of fact as the legend is passed down by word of mouth.
