Captivating with sadistic intentions to exalt the carrion
Holding onto faith like it would help me anyway
Up on my feet. Vehemence takes over as I pave the way to anatomical feasts
Severing the ties I once endured to understand why it is that I crave the dead
Going by my knowledge of popular culture
I find a sense in malpracticing the common ways
Wallowing in claret. I long for such salvation
For when I'm through. I shall wear your pride upon my lips
Songs of the dead will eternally be chanted
Before sepulture. I must purloin the genitalia.
I must find pleasure when you're gone
An injection of sodium thiopental applied.
Your eyes are getting heavy now. I smell your fear
Delusions and paranoia are setting in
Control in my hands. I now shall purge.
With the saw I maim. By the saw I live
Inhaling fumes of the putrid festered funk
As I drain the throbbing cysts from the gangrenous vagina
The mordant reek is overtaking every inhalation
The nausea is overwhelming. I stop to heave
Brought forth are my confessions to the dead
As the lies coincide with vitriolic clues
We all will spread disease
We're all deceased
Carved in your face. The sacrilegious rites
These words bring truth to what was foretold
Corpses and bile will reconcile
The rumors of this forensic plague
By these words I am one with the dead
And with this I've claimed the one which I'm wed
Until death do us part. We'll rot hand in hand.

    If you think whitechapel is screamo, you probably shouldn't be listening to this band at all, and you should destroy all your music too.

    With a novel relation with poietic prosody the artist begat a certain occasion of exacerbation of the manifestness of verities with respect to the existential orientation of the ipseic posed unto an absurdistic and transcendentally factical being as one's axiomatically insubstantial "self"; in the absurdity abounding what is one ipseic to do but ek-statikally engage the non-unitarity of the ousia-less-ness as which exists the ipseity of the ipseic existent in manner so as to reflexively enlighten anent the inly verities to be apprehended of this existential case? Profundities prodigious effusive are about the poeticity of occasion in this piece explicating artistically and as an acute perspicuity grants the nullity of the set of all occupations limited as privy to which as is the ipseic propriated which further constitute not mere nugacities constitutive of the more general fruitlessness one may well provide as abstract for the true quality of this existential case said afore. These engagements are but as exercises in the effecting abbreviature unto the protraction of conscious endurance life in this invariably veridically inclined existential case constitutes; nonetheless parfay nigh but affording of adequate concision of temporals parcel to one's history as one being exist the deviances from normativity which is of occupation assured most whole of the history ere mentioned lest certes such be as quietus for the ipseic's agency to ascend mere vulgar being devoid of the loftiness for ight be the exercises as said practiced. I prithee, hath for hermeneuticals specific for this art a keenness with which may it be psychically digested as ought and as such the piece for interpretation of which i have shown due reflection.

    Taken from phil's facebook:

    The somatic defilement - this song is a fabrication of the mind of jack the ripper. This song puts the work of him with the work of many serial killers. They crave power through the dead.

    this song just like the rest of the album is about jack the ripper the rape, and killing of prostitutes in jack's perspective
