Lyrics Edit

They came from the sun From the east, from the west all around So fate's die is cast They marshaled their forces and found us at last So it's come to this The child is the destroyer The young God comes to slay


Son kill the father For blackness is all that I crave Shells explode across my hide Take me Death, I am your slave For I don't have soul And I don't have a heart Come then and face me But first you must suffer my wrath

Hatred of all things alive War is all we know

They say war is a last resort For me it's the only way I have tried reading their poetry It suits me better to slay All that I touch seems to break in my hands Then it just bursts into flames The piteous pleadings as innocents die Only an odor remains So burn the bitter butter Prepare the murder machines Bring me my scabbard, my halberd, my hauberk Fetch me my enchanted grieves My walls they are melting The drugs they aren't helping Is it time for the old gods to die? To arms is the only cry

Hatred of all things alive War is all we know The humans must feast on their gods We know it fucking blows

Hatred is a seed that's easy to sow Buckets of blood will help it to grow And raised on high, the fetid throne Death is fate's master, he sits alone

They say war is all we know If only that were true No matter how I work my schedule There's always other things that I do But excuse me now, there's a tank at the door And that slave's head just rolled cross the floor He tries to say something and that something is puke Right about then the pigs set off a nuke

War is all we know Hatred

When I said I loved war, I lied It fucking sucks on the losing side And speaking of which, my face is on fire A lightning withdrawn, we quickly retire A flury of carnage, my brainpan is nicked To my unending shame, my ass just got kicked And as the shells fall in a relentless hail The fortress was gutted and we had to bail
