Whitechapel – Possession lyrics

Eyes are glaring red with a conscious set to kill
Nostrils flared and the eyebrows parallel
Thriving on the chaos and the suffering I have caused on you all
A dispute of man and diabolical beasts
How could one cipher such a malevolent being
I am certain of humanity's demise
We are the disease that spreads amongst this filthy race
I am certain of humanity's demise
Man will inspire the works of a new era of corruption
Now that I can control the orifice of mankind
I gladly inform, you're all in a world of shit
Coprophagia would be the only solution
Open your fucking mouth and ingest what you are
Silent you will remain while I invoke my presence on your world
Urges I must satisfy again and again
Inside a shell festering is the mind of a bastard child
Cover the earth with the blood of this lamb
We are the disease that spreads amongst this filthy race
Collect the dust of the ones who have fallen to the lies
It is your last resort to a wretched memory
Take this life for granted and hold it tight
For we have you all under control because
We are the disease
For we have you all under control
Man will inspire the works of a new era of corruption
God damn you all
Eyes are glaring red with a conscious set to kill
Nostrils flared and the eyebrows parallel
God damn you all

    I love when peopple put * like ' this should be banned' cause for one, freedom of speech, two songwriting isn't necessarily how people feel exactly, some songs, not saying this one isn't, portray the extremes of how someone might or does feel in a fit of rage or agony. Prolly the two most common emotions people face. And yes the most common people to be taken over are people who give them selves up to a being, like cristians and catholics, and you can tell cause they are the ones putting themselves out their agaist this music like they are the ultimate judge. This song hits it right on the nail and you arrogant people of faith make true to the core.

    I know this is really only for writing my meaning to the song but I just felt a little insulted by some unregistered hypocrite calling me arrogant. Um, I'm a follower of jesus christ, and I like this song? I love this type of music, and I love jesus even more. You called us the "ultimate" judge while you're judging right back. Check your own self before you point your finger so righteously.

    Okay, so I just discovered this band via a stereotype gag about what most fans look like (stoners with big holes in their earlobes) and my curiosity led me to these lyrics.
    Really, these lyrics might be dirty if taken literally, but I believe this song is about hypocrisy and conformity. This song is just how the band wants to tell its listeners that we should be the ones to control our own minds, not the evils of what society tells us we should be. Also, it says something about how we humans are creating our own demise, and how in the end, we will all just be desperate and eat our own $h! T (figuratively of course.).

    To the anonymous idiot that said the following: "This is unacceptable. This song should be banned. I cant even understand what would posses someone to make a song with these filthy lyrics. They need a church."
    My response, It's called Possession for a reason dipshiett, The song is basically describing how Catholics and Christians think so high of themselves to even realize what idiotic sinners they are themselves for judging everyone about their beliefs and beings. Realize what you're doing. It's people like you who are the ones who should be banned from life.
