Entombed – Left Hand Path Lyrics (1990)

1. Left Hand Path

I am my own God
Master slave and I will be beyond the grave
No one will take my soul away
I carry my own will and make my day

I am my own God
See the truth beyond
Through endless lies thy kingdom come
Glorified wisdom illumination tool
Self deceit it’s the golden rule

Live your life you’re gonna die your own death
There’s no one above that’s gonna take your breath

I dip my forefinger in the watery blood
Of your impotent redeemer
And write over his thorn torn brow
The true Prince of Evil

What man’s created
Man can destroy
Bring to light
That day of joy

2. Drowned

As the clouds so dark, so mighty
Hid the light of the moon from my eyes
I felt their presence even stronger
My invocation had caused them to rise
Terrors beyond the human mind
Awaiting me for thousands of years
Dimensions of another kind
Between the gates
And the ancient domains
How was
I to know that halfway on my quest
They would have me drained
They’ve taken my body
In control but
I bare
No anguish no malice
The god of all gods are entitled
I remember the times
I used to travel beyond
All of what is and what has been
Is gone in man’s mind
They’ve left me now
To shiver and cry like a child
Left me with the humiliation
Of knowing,
I’m not worthy of
What’s yet to come
By the dark and mighty waters
I’m standing here alone
To hear and suffer my sentence
To pay the price
I owe
I’m drowned
Terrors beyond the human mind
Awaiting me for thousands of years
Dimensions of another kind
Piercing their teeth
Into my skin and my flesh
Inner dimension beyond human conscience
I wish for only death

3. Revel In Flesh

As your eyes filled are filled with horror
I lift up the corpse on the bench
You can’t avoid the dismal sight
It’s arms and legs I re-trench

Excavating it’s interior
To get a hold of what’s inside
And as I drivel and belch
You feel so damn reviled

As I continue with laughter
I drink the bowel’s rheum
Squeezing my hand through it’s mouth and further
Through it’s stomach to it’s womb

Of it’s once called body
There seems nothing to be left
And you better prepare yourself
For an equaling death

Revel in Flesh

Pools of coagulated blood
And rotten flesh by my side
Now I really need something more
To kill another day in my life

4. When Life Has Ceased

5. Supposed To Rot

Stubborn old, worthless hag
Simply had nothing to give
I couldn’t stand your eternal nag
You didn’t deserve to live

So I went to the stove and took a pork knife
and stabbed it into your head
Buried you in the fruit cellar
I was glad ’cause I thought you were dead

But the maggots didn’t feast on your body
You didn’t get moldy as I thought
And still I can hear that nag in my head
You were supposed to rot

Supposed to Rot

Now she haunts me, day and night
A haunting I can’t forget
The deed was a coldblooded homicide
a murder I regret

But still she’s the same old hag
And still my life has turned the same
Isn’t there anything to set me free from this wicked pain?

You were supposed to rot.

6. But Life Goes On

A rotten stench
Surrounds another ended life
Maggots infesting the rotten flesh
Is that the way you want to die?
Decomposed
Don’t want to live in a decaying shell
But why should I go to heaven
And who’s to say I’ll enter hell

Dead – Deceased, but life goes on
I will be the one who won
My charred body will decay
But my soul will be floating anyway

Visually a corpse
But what’s inside my head
Don’t consider I once was deceased
So I guess I’ll come back from the dead
Dying my death
In relentless aggrieve
Dead and put down in a wooden box
Just can’t be my destiny

Dead – Deceased, but life goes on
I will be the one who won
Continue to seek and you will see
That life is your worst enemy

7. Bitter Loss

Blinded eyes, crash course with reality
Subconscious lie, who did they really kill?
Shattered hope, a slave to his master
He starts thirsting for the things he may never near

The falling tears, falling from your sorrow
You wonder why they’ll rip you all to shreds
Bomb the poor, if that’s what living means to thee
They realize that religion wants them dead

Imagine their emotion, for someone’s need to kill
For some other religion but yours
It’s just the death of your religion that makes you cry
It’s just your own bitter loss

You

Blinded eyes, no more consolation
Subconscious lie won’t set you free
Your falling tears, our own extinction
Abandon stories, now everything can be seen

You’re living out this lie
And the rest of you are blind
Can’t you fucking see?
Subverted with a lie

Imagine their emotion, for someone’s need to kill
For some other religion but yours
It’s just the death of your religion that makes you cry
It’s just your own bitter loss

It’s just your own bitter loss
It’s just your own bitter loss
It’s just your own bitter loss

8. Morbid Devourment

9. Abnormally Deceased

A tumor of mould
Inherits you inside
Spreads in you
Soon to putrefy

Convulsion sets in
Relentless aggrieve
Stench of decay
Starts possessing visibility

Putrid stench
?????????
Infected body
Slowly putrefies

Heading for death
Flesh turns out to be mould
About these symptoms
You were never told

Decomposed to shreds
Bodily debris
Coagulated blood, moulded flesh
Surrounded by disease

Recently died
But limbs are moving anyway
Thoughts have ceased
But you scream in hysterical rage

10. The Truth Beyond

People put to death in the name of God
And blood run red in an eternal flood
The word has been spread – Through out the centuries
Millions of corpses lying in the cemeteries

Reek of christianity
Down of obscuration
The birth of insanity
And death to liberation
Lord of evolution
Enslavement emperor
Root of all evil
It is the holy terror

God the almighty – The creator of Earth
Devote your life to this holy writ – The key to your rebirth
And if you’ve been a believer of justice and brave
So what! It shall be written on your grave

The bell summon its slaves to mass
In the darkest hour
To devour the body of Christ
The blood feast shall increase their power
Chalices filled to the edge with blood
Drawn from holy veins
Tearing his stomach open
And revel in the shredded remains

Smell the putrid stench
Of the godblessed crucifixion
And discover the lies
There is no resurrection
Get your eyes open wide
And discover the lies
See the truth beyond
The shadows of a false paradise!

11. Carnal Leftovers

(Bonus Track)

You remember when he stuck
That hair curler up
Her wet and juicy hair pie

He was laughing like hell
While she was screaming in pain
It was the way he wanted her to die

Carnal leftovers on the floor
If you had come a little earlier
You would have seen some gore

He’s staring down.
He took her breath.
Leaving a carnal stench behind.
He’ll be curious to search for clues.
Carnal leftovers. The only thing to find.

Carnal leftovers on the floor
If you had come a little earlier
You would have seen some gore

He’s staring down.
He took her breath.
Leaving a carnal stench behind.
He’ll be curious to search for clues.
Carnal leftovers. The only thing to find.
