Death & Insanity Lyrics

Submitted by level LightListener
1. Death and Insanity (2:21)
[Chorus]:
Death and insanity
A flicker in the flame
Death and insanity
Are you truly sane?

Do you ever wonder when you're lying in your bed
Deep dark thoughts of trances coming
Flying through your head
You know you're truly stable
But could your thoughts be the truth?
A horde of groping parasites to haunt you
In your youth

[Chorus]:
Death and insanity
A flicker in the flame
Death and insanity
Are you truly sane?

Sitting in the shadow of your stone cold padded cell
You dream the macabre dreams that you have come to know so well
Brain is pumping harder and about to hear the shriek
Of warriors wielding demon swords
And death is what they seek

[Chorus]
Death and insanity
A flicker in the flame
Death and insanity
Are you truly sane?


Death and insanity
A flicker in the flame
Death and insanity
Are you truly sane?

Could this really be the truth or is it really real?
Is it the depths of hell I see
Or insanity I feel
The triumphs of my dying mind shall overcome at last
Wicked evil leering eyes shall see me to my death

[Chorus]
Death and insanity
A flicker in the flame
Death and insanity
Are you truly sane?

Death and insanity
2. Goblet of Gore (5:46)
As the madman we all know who writhed on a crucifix
I too have been sacrificed by death and her tricks

Pursue the grail to make a wish
And drink from the goblet of gore
Souls are but small giblets
Please death care for more?

In my anger ten more pills
Shall I gather seven hills?
Lock the horns into place
Call upon the human race

And I would pray:
Bitch which art in heaven above
Hallowed be thy name
Thy violence come, mayhem be done
On Earth as it has in Rome
Give us this day our daily gore
Forgive us for being poor
Cause maybe if we pay enough,
We can wield upon the whore!

I met an alter side of myself
He said I don't know all but I'm learning
I'm tired of quiet revolution
I feel a violent yearning

So gather your masses
Be masters of your fate
Be all that you sow
There is war in the shadows
I am the master of hate
Delivering the final blow!!!

We the people shall destroy!!!....


The whore, my lord, she shall not want
She eateth though I wield
She creates the bondage, we are sheep in her field
Her cup runneth over with my blood
And she wants more
Death, I am your filthy grail...
Your Goblet of Gore...
All that I sow
Of this horrorshow!
3. Lethal Tendencies (6:41)
Out of love, out of mind
Out of food, out of time
Those who live do not care
A taste of war
A taste of death
Die!

Live for the cross it has been said
But in the end aren't we all dead
Death has come from 'cross the sea
Now realize reality

[Chorus]:
Time out of mind, carnage butchery
Leaving life behind, lethal tendencies
Die!

Those who rest, the kiss of death
Is upon most every face
Feel the fire from the sky
To diminish the human race
Die!

There lies no one here but me
Bloody bodies in the debris
Before I breathe my final breath
Peer into the face of death

[Chorus]:
Time out of mind, carnage butchery
Leaving life behind, lethal tendencies


[Chorus]
Time out of mind, carnage butchery
Leaving life behind, lethal tendencies

Genocide they take you down
To the burning pit of hell
You realize you're wondering
What's the burning that you smell
Could it be the dying world or could it be the pit?
For if this is my hell for me
Then maybe I need it


Out of love, out of mind
Out of food, out of time
Those who live do not care
A taste of war
A taste of death
Die!

Those who rest, the kiss of death
Is upon most every face
Feel the fire from the sky
To diminish the human race

[Chorus]
Time out of mind, carnage butchery
Leaving life behind, lethal tendencies

Time out of mind, carnage butchery

Die!!
4. Obituary (0:37)
instrumental
5. Plea of the Aged (3:22)
Death is drawing closer
I'm fighting for my life
I know not how to stop it
Live through this pain and strife

Awakened in the nighttime
I'm fighting for my life
Death is drawing nearer
I'll soon be cold as ice

No longer do I trifle
Bones growing too old
Death longing to reach and grasp my unrelenting soul

When I'm lying at my rest
They'll look upon my face
Cry their tears of dreadful mourn
In their weakened daily pace

[Chorus]:
Remember me, hear my plea
Time's drawing nigh for me to die
Remember me, hear my plea
Take from this heart the bitter part

The world they will destroy me
Or put me in the ground
Stand around my gravesite
With their heads all hanging down

When I'm lying at my rest
They'll look upon my face
Cry their tears of dreadful mourn
In their weakened daily pace

Staring at the ceiling
The tubes glow in the dark
Fearless thoughts invade my head
To tear my mind apart

Trapped within this feeling
I feel it deep inside
Knock of death upon my door
And I've no will to hide

[Chorus]:
Remember me, hear my plea
Time's drawing nigh for me to die
Remember me, hear my plea
Take from this heart the bitter part


[Chorus]
Remember me, hear my plea
Time's drawing nigh for me to die
Remember me, hear my plea
Take from this heart the bitter part

Take from me my very soul
With wretched mourning death
Take mine eyes for I have seen
The hell in which we live
Take now from one man on earth
Who loved this life so much
Take away everything
For it's all cold to the touch

[Chorus]
Remember me, hear my plea
Time's drawing nigh for me to die
Remember me, hear my plea
Take from this heart the bitter part

Remember me, hear my plea
Soon the darkness I will see
Remember me, hear my plea
For now another...
(Plain I seek)
6. Suicide (1:19)
I took the pills that made me fast to speed my brain
Future is past
Rapid pulsations upon my heart
Pulsing my blood from part to part

[Chorus]:
Suicide
I'm still living
Suicide
I'm still giving

To suicide I bring the gas
To suicide I give my ass
Open the can I huff the fume
Ah, to me it is perfume

[Chorus]
Suicide
I'm still living
Suicide
I'm still giving

To suicide I swear an oath
The human race I do loathe
Now I drive reckless speed
With suicide I take the lead

[Chorus]
Suicide
I'm still living
Suicide
I'm still giving

I wish I had never been born
My own past hear me mourn
Arm in arm I walk with death
Crazed words on my last breath

[Chorus]
Suicide
I'm still living
Suicide
I'm still giving
7. D.I.E. (7:02)
We are all dying
There's no sense in trying
No way you can stop it (No Way!)

Death comes to you when you're an early son
Then he walks beside you all the way
Any moment he might strike reflecting your past life
And sentencing you to the grave
Don't live life worrying 'bout things you can't stop
If you give in then you'll be his slave

[Chorus]:
D.I.E. death in effect
D.I.E. death in effect
D.I.E. death in effect
D.I.E. death in effect

He's our final conflict, he's our final judge
He is death and he follows me
He is the force which exists on this earth
To betray and intimidate me
Only one way to win, only one way to live
If you give in then you're going to pay
I'll be the conqueror, I'll thrash till death
Exist for myself all the way

[Chorus]
D.I.E. death in effect
D.I.E. death in effect
D.I.E. death in effect
D.I.E. death in effect


When I feel I am slipping
They stand in my way
The people that might drag me 'round

I'll never worry
I'm the killing force
And I'm bringing the hammer down

You do not own me
There are no rules
Society I will begrudge
Believe on thyself and thou shalt be saved
For thou art thine own final judge

[Chorus]
D.I.E. death in effect
D.I.E. death in effect
D.I.E. death in effect
D.I.E. death in effect

D.I.E. death in effect
D.I.E. death in effect
D.I.E. death in effect
D.I.E. death in effect
8. Attack of the Iguana (2:30)
instrumental
9. Nefarious (5:05)
Taking you down to the dark depths of hell
Fire lies under your feet
I am the ruler of this dark domain
Murder is what I now seek

Demons above you are flying on high
Eternal death to come soon
Welcoming you to their fiery home
Welcome the legions of doom

[Chorus]:
Torture, waiting to die
Torment, you scream and you cry
Evil, in my eyes
Death, in the black of the night

Souls into bondage I take one by one
Behold their screams and their cries
Innocent victims lined up down the way
Each one is waiting to die

Only the evil survive in this place
Who have knowledge of the carnal soul
Death to the hungry
Now death to the weak
I am in total control

[Chorus]
Torture, waiting to die
Torment, you scream and you cry
Evil, in my eyes
Death, in the black of the night


Only the memories of lives they have spent
Linger in their mortal minds
Bow down the horned god of the black underworld
For now I will make you my prize
Farther and farther and farther you go
Spiralling out of control
Feeling the heat from my fiery home
Burning your innocent soul

Demons in fiery chariots come
To take you on this molten ride
You and the others
The rest of the world experiencing genocide

Farther and farther and farther you go
Spiralling out of control
Is this your hell or the world that you live
For now it may well be as one

[Chorus]
Torture, waiting to die
Torment, you scream and you cry
Evil, in my eyes
Death, in the black of the night


[Chorus]
Torture, waiting to die
Torment, you scream and you cry
Evil, in my eyes
Death, in the black of the night
10. Nobody Lives Forever (3:44)
Everyone is condemned to death
Time of execution unknown
Yet seek that which is within
For the everyday fight in the horrorshow

Sword on your hip, cry on your lip
Charge upon beasts of your script
Misaligned verse I'm first to admit
But life's stage knows no delay

[Chorus]:
Death the ultimate reality
Death the ultimate reason to live
No time no cordiality
You've got to live because...
Nobody lives, lives forever
I try not to slip on my sweat
Nobody lives, lives forever
Nobody lasts that long

I know when I reach my life's sum
The addition will probably be wrong
That's okay I've made my mark
Pissed in public at least in the dark

When pissing in public one remembers
Traditions are passed on down the line
As a chamber pot is passed to your neighbor
its level grows higher everytime

[Chorus]:
Death the ultimate reality
Death the ultimate reason to live
No time no cordiality
You've got to live because...
Nobody lives, lives forever
I try not to slip on my sweat
Nobody lives, lives forever
Nobody lasts that long

Do you remember the times that you thrashed
Do you remember it was suicide
Like healing leeches we drew blood
To exorcise your inhibitions

So you'll reach the figure down the line
Who gives you the final wink
Now the pages seem to rhyme
As you forgive and wash in his sink

I don't know if that is it or if we choose our sides
But heads have drowned in oceans of fear
When there were only peaceful tides

[Chorus]:
Death the ultimate insanity
Death the ultimate reason to live
No time no cordiality
You've got to live because...
Nobody lives, lives forever
I try not to slip on my sweat
Nobody lives, lives forever
Nobody lasts that long
11. Death and Insanity (Reprise) (1:59)
[Chorus]:
Death and insanity
A flicker in the flame
Death and insanity
Are you truly sane?

Be careful of what lies within or
What you just might find
Evil beings who have come to sacrifice my mind
People try to rearrange me they will never see
The fear and the insanity that lies inside of me

[Chorus]
Death and insanity
A flicker in the flame
Death and insanity
Are you truly sane?

Death and insanity...
