Body Count – Raining In Blood/Postmortem 2017 lyrics

Ice! Explain Body Count
Body Count is a band I put together
Just to let one of my best friends Ernie C play his guitar
He's always been playing guitar
We all went to Crenshaw High School together in South Central Los Angeles
And I had the idea of let's make a metal band, let's make rock band
'Cause I had been to Europe
And I noticed that the kids would mosh off of hip-hop
So we put the band together
And I used the three bands that were my favorites at the time
To set the tone
We used the impending doom of a group like Black Sabbath
Who pretty much invented metal
The punk sensibility of somebody like Suicidal
Who basically put that gangbanger style from Venice, California into the game
And the speed and the precision of Slayer
One of my favorite groups and always will be

Trapped in purgatory
A lifeless object, alive
Awaiting reprisal
Death will be their acquisition

The sky is turning red
Return to power draws near
Fall into me, the sky's crimson tears
Abolish the rules made of stone

Pierced from below, souls of my treacherous past
Betrayed by many, now ornaments dripping above

Awaiting the hour of reprisal
Your time slips away

Raining blood
From a lacerated sky
Bleeding its horror
Creating my structure I now reign in blood

My sinful glare at nothing holds thoughts of death behind it
Skeletons in my mind commence tearing at my sanity
Vessels in my brain carry death until my birth
Come and die with me forever
Share insanity

Do you want to die?

The waves of blood are rushing near, pounding at the walls of lies
Turning off my sanity, reaching back into my mind
Non-rising body from the grave showing new reality
What I am, what I want, I'm only after death
