There's something inside me
It's, it's coming out
I feel like killing you
Let loose the anger, held back too long
My blood runs cold

Through my anatomy dwells another being
Rooted in my cortex, a servant to its bidding

Brutality now becomes my appetite
Violence is now a way of life
The sledge, my tool to torture
As it pounds down on your forehead

Eyes bulging from their sockets
With every swing of my mallet
I smash your fucking head in, until brains seep in
Through the cracks, blood does leak
Distorted beauty, catastrophe
Steaming slop, splattered all over me

Lifeless body, slouching dead
Lecherous abcess, where you once had a head

Avoiding the prophecy of my new found lust
You will never live again, soon your life will end
I'll see you die at my feet, eternally I smash your face
Facial bones collapse as I crack your skull in half
Crushing cranial contents

Draining the snot, I rip out the eyes
Squeezing them in my hands nerves are incised
Peeling the flesh off the bottom of my weapon
Involuntarily pulpifying facial regions

Suffer and then you die
Torture (torture), pulverized

At one with my sixth sense, I feel free
To kill as I please, no one can stop me

Created to kill, the carnage continues
Violently reshaping human facial tissue

Brutality becomes my appetite
Violence is now a way of life
The sledge, my tool to torture
As it pounds down on your forehead

    This song reminds me of this girl I slept with when I was drunk.

    "which you found later found out was your mom" Someone didn't check his message for errors did he?

    I am pretty fucking stupid. Ok, I think this song is about psychosis, and the sudden urge to kill that often goes with it, in this case, it ends with the protaganist's head sprayed on the floor.

    You know you want me...

    People that say we are bad people and disgusting for listening to Cannibal Corpse and how this music promotes violent acts, needs to shut the f*** up. It's only song lyrics for christ sakes. It's simply entertainment. We aren't going to go around smashing peoples faces in with hammers from listening to this song.

    When someone watches a gory movie, do you think, "Oh my god, that guy's messed up for watching that movie."?

    No. So CC haters, get the f*** out. Not saying you have to like Cannibal Corpse, but if you don't like them in the first place, why even come here?

    My Interpretation

    This is song is about verbal abuse..the "hammered smashed face" is a metaphore. CC Lyrics always hide something inside.

    My Interpretation

    I don't feel like he is killing for revenge. I think that he is killing for pleasure. Or there might be some sort of parasite in his brain making him go haywire. but it might just be me.
