Shovel Headed Kill Machine Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Sathanas       Last modified by level Besi Karat
1. Raze (4:16)
Let's start a fire, biggest one you've ever seen
You bring the matches, I'll bring the gasoline
Ignite it, delight it, the flames grow higher
Burn the world upon a funeral pyre

Chorus:
(Raze!) Light this motherfucker like a roman candle
Burn this bitch straight to the ground
(Raze!) Let's not worry about consequences
If it's standing we'll bring it down

Destroy it all, show no inhibition
Revel and rejoice in unbridled demolition
Smash it, fuck it, nothing will remain
Detect it and wreck it but never take the blame

Repeat chorus

We have ignition!

Shake the earth from its very foundation
Lay waste to the world without hesitation
Break it, take it, you don't have any reason
Fuck it, destruct it, it's demolition season
2. Deathamphetamine (8:31)
Life spent with lips on glass
Another hit, just one more blast
How long can you make it last?
Hit the pipe and vaporize
Feel the rush, so energized
Your longs being to crystallize
Try to stem the tide
From another five day ride
Don't you know your dead inside?
The world spins out of control
All amped up, nowhere to go
A glass house is all you know

Chorus:
Poison cloud hangs in the air
Breathe it deep, your only care
It's a nightmare, not a dream
Deathamphetamine!

Spun and sleep deprived
The calendar burns before your eyes
Another hit, for now revived
So many slepless nights
Only whet your appetite
Strike a match, the torch ignites
See the shards start cracking back
Watch them turn your world to black
While waiting for the heart attack
All your dreams are dead and gone
I tell you now, it won't be long
Before death ends this marathon

Repeat chorus

Withered and sucked up
You're wasting away
Eyes sunken deep in your skull
You care not about yourself
Nor any other
Only if the pipe is full
Lick your lips
As you hover around the glass
Anxiously awaiting your turn
Depressed and paranoid
It's all gone to hell
Inhale as your world burns

Lost everything you own
Now waiting by the telephone
For the dope man to come home
All your friends and family
Are sickened by your need for speed
Only driven to exceed
SO many years, so little time
For you to halt your life's decline
You've got to read the signs
Everything has come unwound
You've got to turn this shit around
Before you're six feet underground

Repeat chorus
3. Karma's Messenger (4:15)
Unrelenting vengeance
On man for all his sins
Ruthless eradication
Duty of reckoning to begin
The human race is a cancer
Fueled by power and lust
Punishment is the answer
And payment is your blood

[Chorus]:
Death and destruction
Hellish cries are the sound
Headlong into hell
Retribution is now
Inflict the suffering
Let the punishment fit the crime
I belong to vengeance
And vengeance is mine

Choking out the life
Of every living thing
History repeats itself
World brought down by greed
Prostitute the truth
Stealing from the blind
Arrogant indifference
The raping of mankind

[Chorus]
Death and destruction
Hellish cries are the sound
Headlong into hell
Retribution is now
Inflict the suffering
Let the punishment fit the crime
I belong to vengeance
And vengeance is mine


Killing just for profit
And weeding out the weak
Ruling with an iron fist
The cure for the disease
Driven by the madness
Driven by the greed
Infected by a cancer
Lust and debauchery

[Chorus]
Death and destruction
Hellish cries are the sound
Headlong into hell
Retribution is now
Inflict the suffering
Let the punishment fit the crime
I belong to vengeance
And vengeance, vengeance, vengeance is mine
4. Shudder to Think (4:48)
You hit rock bottom, now where do you go from here?
Sunk down, locked up, all you do is disappear
All your promises are all just a pack of lies
You've got nothing, something you can't recognize

Chorus:
Why don't you take some responsibility?
You're pointing fingers and blaming everybody
Sudder to think if I lived like you
They would be shaking too, if they only knew

I can't take any more excuses
No longer needed and you don't have nay uses
Washed up, washed out, what more can I say
You better start filling out your resume

Repeat chorus

Everything was there for the taking
Too busy with the lying and flaking
Drugged up, fell out, too many second chances
Nothing else to do under the circumstances

Repeat chorus
5. I Am Abomination (3:24)
I am affliction
The cause of all that ails you
I am addiction
That binds and assails you
I am the chaos
I'm the thing that makes you hurt
Laughing at your loss

Chorus:
Just underneath your skin
Is evil's origin
Come see the face of devastation
You are me, I am abomination

I am the bleeding
When you open up the vein
I am the overdose
That rushes to your brain
I'm all you've come to loathe
All you've known to hate
I am the hunter
When you come to take the bait

Repeat chorus

I am Jehovah
I am the virgin whore
I am the battlefield
I'm pestilence and war
I am the monster
That lurks beneath your bed
I'm all perversions
Trapped inside your head
6. Altered Boy (7:36)
Unholy pedophile
Preying on the innocent
Protected by the papacy
So called men of enlightenment
Children fingered by the hand of God
Raped in the name of Christ
They took a vow of chastity
Yet have torn asunder so many a life

Chorus:
Chickenhawks of the Catholic Church
Out to save and destroy
They have become the preist of burden
And he's become an altered boy

Men so benevolent
In a position of trust
Molesting children by the score
Rendering young life straight into the dust
They're curch is their Golgotha
Their crucified by the priest
Child becomes the victim
Holy Father becomes the beast

Repeat chorus

Multi-million dollar payouts
Restitution for their crimes
This vile sickness
Cut so many down in their prime
All the bishops and the cardinals
Tried to hide it away
In the parish and cathedrals
The predators come to prey

Repeat chorus
7. Going Going Gone (4:59)
A straight razor and a flick of the wrist
Brass knuckles and a willing fist
A big knife and a little scream
They do wonders for my self-esteem
Warm blood and a cold embrace
The catch is better than the chase
They all ask why I'm doing this
Violence is bliss

Chorus:
What you see
All I know to be
Is a madman out on a killing spree
One thing I say
I did it all my way
Gave rise to the dawn of the dying age
When I feel the urge
And it's tarting to surge
Soon I'm blowing like an atom bomb
When you comprehend
Your life's coming to an end
I'm going, going, going, going, gone

Two things that I can't ignore
Dark nights and an unlocked door
I get the feeling and I follow through
I get high like I'm sniffing glue
It's time to let the games commence
This really helps my self-confidence
Blood orgy for the hedonist
Violence is bliss

Repeat chorus

I never leave any telltale traces
Only fear frozen on dead faces
An orgasm of depravity
It's the best kind of therapy
I always flee the scene of the crime
No victims, left to drop the dime
So many lives yet to be dismissed
Violence is bliss
8. Now Thy Death Day Come (5:11)
Bloodied, cleaved and mutilated
Dead bodies amputated
Man's bloody inclination
God's final abdication
Angels weep on bended knee
So beings the tyranny
The fallen one will rise again
So ends the time of man

Chorus:
My will be done
Now they death day come

Never more the sound of laughter
Misery for ever after
The cries of suffering
Are what the death day bring
No one gives the benediction
All hear the malediction
Lucifer makes his accent
No words for man's lament

Repeat chorus

On black wings I take to the sky
Scouring the land
Rejoicing in and laughing at
The folly of man
Centuries of hatred
Centuries of fear
Have led you to the end of days
And the one you so revere

The gates of heaven have been shattered
Wings of angels torn and tattered
All due to mankind's thirst
For war so well rehearsed
When you see my demon eyes
Too late to apologize
Can you feel the irony?
War for all eternity

Repeat chorus
9. .44 Magnum Opus (6:56)
Can't withhold my anger, won't control my rage
My bloodlust will be sated
I'm locked and loaded, ready to engage
Killing everything I've always hated
A motherfucking Van Gogh with a gun
About to paint his masterpiece
Blow the world into oblivion
Paint with the blood of the deceased

[Sub-Chorus]:
Fire away
Put your body on display
Build myself a tower of decay
A symphony
Written in human debris
Art and murder true synonymy
No appeal, no "I got a raw deal",
I don't give a fuck
One thing is clear I've got a deaf ear
You better shut your mouth and duck
When I get a taste of laying everyone to waste
My hunger won't subside
I won't ever stop till the last body drops
Let the bullet be my guide

[Chorus]:
The virtue of vice
In my bloody paradise
A portrait of gore
My .44
Magnum
My .44 magnum opus


Bodies are the canvas, ammo is the vision
For my greatest work of art
I'm waging my own inquisition
Tearing everything apart
I'm building a monument to horror
A temple so divine
Remembrance to those I've massacred
Death the grand design

[Chorus]
The virtue of vice
In my bloody paradise
A portrait of gore
My .44
Magnum
My .44 magnum opus


Bodies are the canvas, ammo is the vision
For my greatest work of art
I'm waging my own inquisition
Tearing everything apart
I'm building a monument to horror
A temple so divine
Remembrance to those I've massacred
Death the grand design

[Sub-Chorus]
Fire away
Put your body on display
Build myself a tower of decay
A symphony
Written in human debris
Art and murder true synonymy
No appeal, no "I got a raw deal",
I don't give a fuck
One thing is clear I've got a deaf ear
You better shut your mouth and duck
When I get a taste of laying everyone to waste
My hunger won't subside
I won't ever stop till the last body drops
Let the bullet be my guide

[Chorus]
The virtue of vice
In my bloody paradise
A portrait of gore
My .44
Magnum
My .44 magnum opus


People will stare in disbelief and awe
When they see what I've created
Still life, no life beautiful and raw
The world will be captivated
Never have they seen something so ambitious
Like nothing done before
A work so terrible and vicious
A masterpiece of gore

[Sub-Chorus]
Fire away
Put your body on display
Build myself a tower of decay
A symphony
Written in human debris
Art and murder true synonymy
No appeal, no "I got a raw deal",
I don't give a fuck
One thing is clear I've got a deaf ear
You better shut your mouth and duck
When I get a taste of laying everyone to waste
My hunger won't subside
I won't ever stop till the last body drops
Let the bullet be my guide

[Chorus]
The virtue of vice
In my bloody paradise
A portrait of gore
My .44
Magnum
My .44 magnum opus
10. Shovel Headed Kill Machine (2:56)
Tank treads crushing over piles of broken bones
Siege engine revving and coming to atone
Poisonous black smoke billows from its eyes
Unholy war machine can't be compromised
Fueled by the corpses' fetid flesh
Never turning back forward to the death
Its only mission is killing everything
It's the shovel headed kill machine

Chorus:
Here to sacrifice
Infernal hate device
Satan's go between
Knee and die before the
Shovel headed kill machine

So inhuman you don't speak its name
Its artillery sets the world aflame
Mechanical demon rolling 'cross the sand
Blodd stained thing scorching black the holy land
Skin made of iron, heart made of steel
Lubricated by the blood beneath its wheels
Reclaiming the world for its king
It's the shovel headed kill machine

Chorus

Here to sacrifice
Infernal hate device
Satan's go between
Knee and die before the
Shovel headed kill machine!
