Bodybreaker Lyrics

4. Bodybreaker (5:14)
Chant of monks, incense burns
Ceremony after death begun

Move deceased to afterlife
Feed back to the earth from where it comes

Prepare sky burial
Corpses taken to the mountain top

Summon birds of prey to eat
Dismembering the limbs with ritual knife

This empty vessel
A task he lives for
Vultures invited
To devour the corpse

(chorus)
Bodybreaker
Vultures descend
Pulverize bones and flesh
Commence the end
Bodybreaker
Take them up high
Unite the dead
Sacred realm of the sky

Cycle of immortality
Not a bit of flesh will go to waste

Carcass laid to be picked clean
Feast the birds of prey on human taste

Set the soul free at last
This is the cadaver's final fate

Strive to do the task precise
All consumed the circle now complete

Mutilate ritual
Scatter ingest
Decomposition
A soul to digest

(chorus)

Mutilation ritual
Returning the remains up to the sky

Wipes his hands of the blood
The work for him is finished for today

Tomorrow brings another death
And so the ritual begins again

Carry out the task with pride
Each man is chosen by his destiny

Nothing is left
Nothing remains
Mourn not the ones
Who are free of the pain

(chorus)
