Cannibal Corpse – The Murderer's Pact lyrics

Coercion and threats
Made their demands
Held the past over my head
One mistake has made me their tool
Blackmailing a means to the end, I'm forced into the pact

Is this what I am

How can I stop this

Not a violent man but now I'm forced to kill
Seems to be no other way
Trapped by an accident, tragic and fatal
The crime was unintentional, but this I cannot prove

Is there no way out

Is that the answer

Deal has been made
No turning back
I'm bound to kill by the murderer's pact

Steel myself for the task at hand
Preparing the tools that I need
Sharpen the blades, make the kill quick
Extortion drove me to the deed, I take from it no joy

Now I will do this

I have made my choice

Sins of the past
Haunt me today
Should have confessed

Motive concealed
Hunting him down
His life will end
I'm bound to kill by the murderer's pact

Thrust of the blade repulses
Commit the heinous crime
Stabbing him repeatedly
Gouge his neck, slash his face

See his look of terror
He knows his time has come
Cannot show him mercy
Make him die, finish it

Blood on the knife
His body slumps
Corpse left to rot
The deed is done

But in my mind
There is no peace
Two dark secrets
That I must keep
I'm bound to kill by the murderer's pact
