Bitter Peace

Album: Diabolus In Musica (1998)
  • Initiate blood purge
    Coalition in massacre
    Mechanized high tech
    Whole sale death in effect

    Mutually assured
    Destruction will occur
    Genocide revised
    Same pain through diverse eyes

    Can't stop the warring factions
    Hostile from the start
    Always war always
    Ending bitter peace

    Not the last third war
    Blood spills for evermore
    Patriot hard line
    Lay siege till the end of time

    No longer kill your brother
    Just slaughter one another
    Watch for the deadly other
    This sibling is a fucker

    Can't stop the warring factions

    Global tension starts aggression
    Peace breaks out then
    Breeds contempt unrest

    Without a reason to fight
    A time to kill
    Sick lust for skeletal flesh
    A taste for all decay

    Enter the solider blind
    Stalking the faceless hunt
    There is no conscience in this world
    That can be reached for peace

    Why face the human question
    The need to hate
    Dead stare though cynical eyes
    A trust in only pain

    Murder within the skin
    Engrave the art of war
    Become death's vile parade
    March on embrace the violent mind

    Can't stop the warring factions

    Global tension starts aggression
    Peace breaks out then
    Breeds contempt unrest
    One cryptic reason for life murder Writer/s: JEFFERY JOHN HANNEMAN
