With our callous minds we infect
Other ways of life, no regrets
Like a masochist we instigate
While the rest of the world must tolerate
It starts with vanity, arrogance and greed
Panic is my obsession
No one can escape, the thrill is much too great
Despair is my creation
It's the feel of your blood as it flows smoothly down my skin
Intoxicating my soul, immortality seducing me
Burning in your own hell which now binds you to me infinitely
Spirits of angels don't weep for you enticing me
Anarchy, disarray, this is the world today
Justice is a lie for the followers to get by
No peace, only guns, can't trust anyone
Live or die, it's an eye for an eye
I am the last of the dying insane
You would scream at the things I've done
Knowing now that the dead still see
My blood, it runs like mercury
I wake each day to propaganda written to persuade
Relentless madness they regurgitate
Disease spreading death, entire population dies
Dead before you're born, massive suicide
Vicious game of fear, it's all extermination now
Poison in your veins, global genocide
Body count, laid out mutilated, it's your time to die
Desolate, lure, kill, satisfaction, climax with your death
All alone, my perv intimidated, feed my lust for fear
Dehumanize, cry out stimulated, your screams fill my soul
Illness, infected born mutilated strain
Issue transfusion, no one left to blame
Nature's way of thinning out the human fucking herd
Disease, to war, to fear his own kind
I never thought the taste of you
Would be the only thing to make me bleed
Why am I so alive while you lay still in the ground beneath me?
I stab you right between the eyes, you awaken from the lies
I've said it ever since its inception, they're the masters of deception
I'm a godless heretic, not a God fearing lunatic
That's why it's become my obsession to treat God like an infection
