Kirisute Gomen

  • He who walks the fire breathes
    Unlike the rest
    Living by the bloody creed
    Kirisute gomen

    Air of battle tasting stale
    Reeks of deceit
    Send the bitter straight to hell
    Kirisute gomen

    In their wretched guts all they want is to feed
    Unending, covetous hunger known as greed
    As the last legion makes it's way to the skies
    I can see in their eyes
    They've already died
    Inside, but as for the outside
    I'll take their f**king heads
    Quake has bred with the storm
    Conceiving war
    Wicked stampeding hordes
    Kirisute gomen

    I will never be what they
    Want me to
    I live by my own path in life
    No turning
    Back now, I won't be held down
    Forced into a shallow grave built upon their empty ways
    There's no turning back

    There's hell to pay, such disarray
    A bloodied mess, flesh masquerade
    With all the blood making a flood
    You made your path by crossing us
    He who spits the fire seethes
    All he detests
    Decapitating, bloody creed

  • Weston from Aztec, NmMakes me think of killing Zombies in a resident evil game. "you can see it in their eyes they're already dead" Favorite Trivium song so far.
  • Nick from Cairns, AustraliaGreat thrashy song to start up the album. much like metallica's 1st track off the justice album, "Blackened". Apparently the band wanted to capture a much better sound that they could obtain live. Something different from the "digitalized" sound of "The Crusade", which the sound was mostly ruled by computer technology.
