Just read the lyrics to Morbid Angel's "Blessed are the Sick".

In case I was not clear enough in the title, I would appreciate some ideas for song lyrics that best represent the ideology of Death Metal as a genre.  Serveral will do for what I intend to use them for, so don't hesitate to be generous with the number of ideas (as long as they make sense).


I think this sums up death metal's central goal as  exposing Christianity as a non-sensical, absurd, destructive creed to live your life by, and it has big impressive words (Suffocation was fond of using big, seldom-used words...perhaps they felt a need to prove that death metal wasn't just mindless music for idiots?):

Suffocation - Pierced From Within

Penetrate the minds of those misfortuned at birth.
Murder is etched in the deepest chasms of the soul.
Salvation stripped from the origin of existence.
Obstinacy abandons, as you yield your world to me.

Decree of my darkest dreams.
Memories of my future.
Welcome to my church.

Sodomize my cross for it now marks your existence.
Dismissal of lucidity, consume my body and blood.
Supplicate for death, obscurity condemns the structure.
Spectral abominations, the gathering of souls.

Befall the rise of inhumanity.

Returned to a land you've never been.
You kill again for the first time.
Recollections of what never was.

Decree of my darkest dreams.
Memories of my future.
Welcome to my church.

I am your savior.
Shapeless to your perception.
For I am you, pierced from within.

Pierced from within.

Though their musical contribution is by no means unequivocally praised, Cryptopsy's lyrics, when composed by Lord Worm, are well conceived, if indulgent.

Easy question. The lyrics from Morbid Angel's Covenant are highly provacative. They give us poetic insight from the mind of an enormous mal content.
