We will trample on our children til this world is flooded red, no boundary
For depravity, no silence for the dead, now weep for the life that you've
Lead. We will follow vacant voices into a shallow grave, reiterate the
Verses of some self consuming slave, now pay for the hell that you praise.

Every curse, lie, violation of our lives. Every careless shallow breath,
Corruption of our minds. All the blood and the shame, defamation of name.
The weight of a wicked world embodied on a thankless - crucifix. Embodied
On a blood soaked - crucifix.

The sacrament is broken, and all I see is red, the idols of humanity they
Tower overhead. Now weep for the life that you've lead, the gates have
Severed open, setting death upon this place, compelling us to hope in a
Revolting human race. Now pay for the hell that you praise.

Every curse, lie, violation of our lives. Every careless shallow breath,
Corruption of our minds. All the blood and the shame, defamation of name.
The weight of a wicked world embodied on a thankless - crucifix. Embodied
On a blood soaked - crucifix.

My - Eyes - Have - Seen.

Sometimes I close my eyes to escape this crooked place, it seems these
Fools will never learn, I guess it's easy to see the world the way I do,
The emptiness is a promise, the sin is just the proof.

Embodied on a thankless - crucifix.

My - Eyes - Have - Seen.

    The crucifix is the cross jesus died on. It is apparently the worst form of death man has invented, that is why it is such a dark song. The king of all kings died the death of a murdering, adultering sinner - "on a thankless crucifix"

    Well i'm not sure what to say... I'm just trying to understand these songs, and decide if demon hunter is with or against god now... I'm not sure what is crucifix, but it's pretty bloody... :s

    It talks about how even when we sinned the most christ still died for us hence
    "embodied on a thankless - crucifix. Embodied on a blood soaked - crucifix. "
