post your favorite lyrics, or lyrics you really like, from any death metal band, please give the band and song names

I'll start

Band: Ex Deo
Song: Invictus
Lyrics:

Elegance, we salute you
King and liberator of the world
Sun of the republic and father of our freedom
Meus Imperator, protector of Rome
Quod Rector, son of the republic
Meus Mucro, the eagle's eyes
Meus Loricatus, the hands of war
HAIL!
HAIL!
HAIL!
JULIUS CAESAR
HAIL!
HAIL!
HAIL!
INVICTUS
Traitors invade the dominion
Predators from the barbarian hordes
Enemies of Rome to betray the civil
Pray of the higher power, to crumble
Instigate the wicked and feel the wrath
To vanish into sacred skies
Meus Imperator, protector of Rome
Quod Rector, son of the republic
Meus Murco, the eagle's eyes
Meus Loricatus, the hands of war
HAIL!
HAIL!
HAIL!
JULIUS CAESAR
HAIL!
HAIL!
HAIL!
INVICTUS

Eh, I don't want to bloat this by posting a massive thing no-one will read so here's the selections.

"People come to pay respect
Taking pictures of the dead
That is what life comes to be
Once they lived, now they're deceased" - Death, "Open Casket"

"Ensnared in the web of the unjesus,
The once-sacrosanct abbey is
Besieged,
With the braying of the
Nightgoat,
Benedictine friars convulse." - Cryptopsy, "Benedictine Convulsions"

Ah fuck it - every lyric on None So Vile is genius.

Here's a little something from Amon Amarth's "where is your god?':

the weapons tear through flesh and bone
dying men that scream and moan
with severed limbs to the hall of death

The battlefield is full of death
feel the stench of rotting flesh
when the entire country burns as the warriors return

and they came out
from morning mist
with sharp blades in mighty fists
they leave this land
all burned and scorn
those alive will mourn

now where is your god
does he hear your prayers
does he even care for you
his silence speaks loud and clear

Cannibal All the way, their lyrics couldn't be anymore "death metal"

Song: Shatter Their Bones
Album: Evisceration Plague
Author: Rob Barret

"Putrid foul zombies make their ghastly approach
A dreadful horrid feeling sets in
Scrambling for weapons in attempt to defend
Against a gruesome horde of undead

Shower them with fire make them burn in the flames
Somehow they continue to march
Ravenous savages, they'll tear you apart
They'll eat you fucking guts and your brains

How do you kill what is not alive?
Break them down to stop their descent
Smash the bastards into the ground
And when they're down, SHATTER THEIR BONES!!"

this shit just cracks me up

Oz: some you can understand, and sometimes the song is just so good you gotta look up the lyrics

Children of Bodom
Are You Dead Yet? - "Living Dead Beat"

Not afraid of crying, sorrow and foe.
Not afraid of falling down below.
To the night, recklessly we fly.
Like living dead, we'll never die.

Henceforth my screen name.

Artist: Path of Possession
Song: Promises in Blood
Note: George Corpsegrinder's side project, more brutal than Cannibal Corpse for the most part in my opinion.
Lyrics:
From the birth of Gods
We have traveled long
Have you come to bleed
Or have you come to learn

No doors, just bodies, will open up my realm
Peel back the flesh, the stench leaks out
It won't be long

Call forth upon me, rain it falls like maggots from a body bag
A lone existence, a cold dark resistance
The ancient summons chant it fulls my lungs
I'm alive!

Ten thousand years of slumbering
You spoke the words to awaken me
Crawling forth from the bowels of the shadow
I spent time in eternal fire

One look inside me, you'll find where evil lies
Crawl back and feel the power burn, surge inside
You'll feel immortal; You are my host
I'll grant you power endlessly
As I slip inside the dominance will take control
Body will burn, one look inside you
I see a path of everlasting amnesty
Fall into the darkest corners of your mind, dead inside you'll

Be when I come
My friend, my friend

Live here with me, I will need you to stand
Feed on the dead flesh to nourish the man...
What man?

Rage forth in the hours twilight
Speak through speech you've never learned
Running through your thoughts desire of controlling me
I spent time in eternal damning fire

Or have you come to learn
Have you come to die

Ten thousand years of slumbering
I thank you for the awakening
Flashing through your mind, the truth of the summoning
Welcome to my world, now suffer!

No doors, just bodies, will open up my realm
Peel back the flesh the stench leaks out
It won't be long

Call forth upon me, rain it falls like maggots from a body bag
A lone existence, a cold dark resistance
The ancient summons chant it fills
My lungs, they spring to life, they're all I need to
Crawl inside your soul, I will be your
Master inside

Ive always loved the lyrics that "Death" had. Heres one of my favorites from the song "The Philosopher":

Do you feel what I feel, see what I see, hear what I hear
There is a line you must draw between your dream world and reality
Do you live my life or share the breath I breathe
Lies feed your judgement of others
Behold how the blind lead each other
The philosopher
You know so much about nothing at all

Ideas that fall under shadows of theories that stand tall
Thoughts that grow narrow upon being verbally released
Your mind is not your own,
what sounds more mentally stimulating is how you make your choice
So you preach about how I'm supposed to be, yet you don't you know your own
sexuality
Lies feed your judgement of others
Behold how the blind lead each other
The philosopher
You know so much about nothing at all

thanks bud, heres some more, post as many as you guys can think of =P

Band: Blood Bath
Song: The Ascension
Lyrics:

Behold, the moon is hiding in the clouds
The night is silent, a world in fear
A million days since he was buried in the sea
He will rise again, his demon spirit will be free

[CHORUS]
We summon thee oh mighty one
Master can you hear our calls
We'll die for you oh lord of death
We await the day when the curtain of night
Will fall and never rise
The dead shall rise again
Pleasure turn to pain
The Ascension
Nothing will survive
Hell shall come alive
The Ascension

Demise, the sun is dying in the sky
The ground is shaking, the end is near
All the restless souls
From the universe below will rise again
Let the eternal misery begin

Ressurection Through Carnage
Breeding Death
In eternal darkness
Death shall live forevermore

AUTOPSY
Charred Remains
Buring from the inside out
Bloody foam spews from your mouth
Smell the putrid stench of flesh
As it burns you to your death

Feel the flesh drip from your face
Turing black, vision fades
Eyeballs melt into their sockets
Involuntarily set ablaze

Gutwrenching screams fill the air
The rancid smell of burning hair
Screaming in excruciating pain
Blood boils over, warping veins
Burnt skull collapses onto melting brains
Spontaneous death, up in flames
Twisting and writhing as life burns away
Until nothing is left but charred remains

[lead: D.C.]


2. Service For A Vacant Coffin

[Music and lyrics: C.R.]

After the caskets put into the ground
Loved ones crying walk away
Corpse unknowingly left behind
Other needs for sick human prey

Casket closed as mourners read
Pages from their holy book
Waiting in a meat locker
Morticians meal hangs from a hook

Storing dead carcases to dine upon
Chewing on rotten arms and legs
Brutal desecration of the dead
Hacking bodies until he's fed

Service for a vacent coffin
Corpse is being digested
Chronic hunger for cold flesh
Remains of the dead are molested
