Cattle Decapitation - A Body Farm Lyrics




For every life I take, an ecosystem I create
Blood and guts consumes my life
I am the "brutal gardener"
I - "quantity controller"
...no more insane than Jesus Christ.

Forgive my humble abode
Rotting bodies clogging the commode
Please pardon the stench and the trunk of a man lying on the workbench

Out by the shed are buzzing hives made of human heads
The gestation of larvae tells us
the time of death

Decomposition - An exhibition of life that springs from tragedy

Degeneration - Breakdown and maturation of DNA: The residue of death

The twilight falls on maggots burrowing in flesh
Dead - the dead now dead as can be

The cadaver now giving life harmoniously
A God - This makes me a god

This is absurd and quite obscene - the corruption of human beings
My back yard now a goddamned crime scene

I am the Ying, I am the yang
Good and evil are one in the same
No more insane than Jesus Christ...

The smell is part of the charm when you live on a "body farm"
I walk with the stench of decay along corpse littered paths at the break of the day

Ah, the irony in being a killer, yet in the crime-solving community, I am a pillar
A corpse turns to mulch with a good roto-tiller...

I kill for the good of man

Decomposition -- a morbid demonstration
The cycle of life - in all its majesty

Degeneration - curdling fermentation of heaps and heaps of human meat

The twilight falls on maggots burrowing in flesh
Dead - the dead now dead as can be

The cadaver now giving life harmoniously
A God - This makes me a god

  12. Tom Flores

    Lol. I've got the greatest Rose garden in the neighborhood. Hahahaahahhahahah

  13. ax.desroches

    I hope this album will get a proper remix and remaster one day. It's a good album, but not as solid as their following releases production wise. It could use that extra oomph!

  14. Maidenlord 666

    They are the perfect fertiliser I mean I've heard they are 😓

  15. Rory Cox

  18. White blotter

    Leftist think they can operate an economy from the down. First they control you're language with PC. The Frankfurt school could've have never imagined this with their widest dreams. The demonstrators of America was well on its way to complete its next 3 agendas but collapsed. So know we have a bunch of ideologicals with a eating disorder and who think seizing private property is justifies. Communism doesn't work because be pole like to stuff

  19. Sean Müller

    Is this a real news piece?

  20. Anthony Cardott

  22. Common Beggar

    I call bullshit, channel 12 in San Diego is Telemundo.

  23. Bob Mushroom

    Either Kingdom Of Tyrants or The Harvest Floor is the best; And did anybody notice they were eating people? And how they didn't even notice the difference? Looks like we can convert to cannabalism if need be. Its funny how until they're told, people find no problem with what they're eating 😂😂 like, my mans, cmon! You were munching on a testicle and you're like "mmm, this is a good meatball." You know that nut tasted good😏😏😏

  24. KrikaHalo

    Anthony Fantano does DeathGrind.

  25. Honking Honker

  54. bear8901

    I can't get into this band for some reason... I'm into all forms of extreme music... but their sound is just meh.

    The Bringer of Salt

    You're tweaking this shit gives me an eargasm

    FIEND_FISHING

    They have an old song called "joined at the ass" lololol.... It got me interested in them. Just a short brutal song

    Martti010

    I started from their last two albums but this album sounds really good as well. still a must listen in my list.

    bear8901

    Thanks for the posts fellas.... Just became a huge cattle decap fan in the past few weeks. \m/

    Jared Fitzgerald

    @bear8901 Hell yeah brother! \m/

  55. Whitechapel Will

    I love this song and the band as a whole, but the intro makes no sense and makes me genuinely upset for some reason.

    The Bringer of Salt

    It's about the morality of using animals as fertilizer.

    Cade Whitmore

    Don't people use their shit and not the actual body

    Matthew Sullivan

    Shit and other organic/biological parts of the animals that aren't used for meat/other things.

    Sonny Curl

    Cade Whitmore sometimes they use the blood and bones for fertilizer

  56. ultimate pirate

  60. Chuloloc

    Awesome. Some of the most intelligent lyrics on the history of death metal. Hail Cattle Decap.

  61. Nephritis I Am

    "Nancy Grace dead at the age of 104"

  68. Sexxyval Denis

  69. CornHub

    Travis really reminds of Phil Bozeman in this video. Maybe phil was influenced

    BT Audio Productions

    +Droobis In fact I hear a lot of CD in Whitechapel in general. Love both bands and vocalists.

    CornHub

    @BT Studio Productions
    Love them both! Well whitechapel's older stuff more so, but trav and phil are both king pins of the screaming game

    Tyler Eastburn

    +Droobis Phil Bozeman has said in his YouYube videos that he is in fact heavily influenced by Cattle Decap

    BT Audio Productions

    @tyler eastburn
    I saw that vid :)

    Tyler Eastburn

    +BT Studio Productions
    yeahh :D

  70. fuebis

    My peepee is erected..

  71. Chainsaw Bunny

    Love Travis' facial expressions!

  72. willuk

    Isn't this about the double standards of the people who use animal blood and bone for fertilizer for plants and how people would react if it was the other way around?

    Keiko Terry

    So basically cattle decap are just brutal vegans

    Thrasher Sabe

    That’s the whole message, they’re protesting inhumane methods used on animals for humans sake, and write about reversed situations.

    Robert Miles

    They need a video of how republicans claim
    To be pro life yet love guns who take a life

    SINISTER SPAWN

    Yeah that was the point. Fun fact here:

    Cattle Decapitation writes their songs based off animal abuse, and humans being in animal abuse situations. All band members are vegan.

    fren

    @SINISTER SPAWN not anymore, travis and Josh are the only vegans in the band.

  73. SALMAN VENTHOL

    "Man wrongly incarcerated for thirty years freed. Finds $100,000 lottery in gutter the same day."Luckiest unluckiest bastard ever!

  74. Andreia Santos

    Cattle Decapitation <3

  75. Paul Lukas Die Veggie-Mann

    They are vegans for nature, I like that it expresses, wait your followers also they it are. THAT LIVES THROUGH THE METAL VEGAN

  76. Thraxus

    At the start I just felt like shouting "SOYLENT GREEN IS PEOPLE"... Anyone else get this feeling?

    SALMAN VENTHOL

    YASSSS!

    Tim Batchelor

    Yep haha

    Cancer Boy Boy Cancer

    Hahahahaha good Futurama flash backs

  77. Martin Lindberg

    2:38, 4:12, 4:22... Travis sure knows how to make some hilarious facial expressions

    cyber tune

    many vids he does lol

  78. Whyte Groovin

    this is alterophily on steroids , better than music !!!

  79. Matt Smith

    I eat meat, but I love Vivien death grind

  80. 666Malodorous Insignificancy666

    Is this real or from a movie?

    DanielC10

    @666Malodorous Insignificancy666 Just made for this music video

    Blackwater Worldwide

    @666Malodorous Insignificancy666 Not real. I live in Oceanside. This was never on the news, nor is there a ch 12.

  81. internetwarrior666

    Vocalist reminds me of Chalky and I fucking love it. Metal needs more interesting vocalists like so.

  82. Metal God

    In my opinion The Harvest Floor is the best Cattle Decapitation album.

    Kratnoff

    Monolith improves on this album in literally every way, Anthropocene even more so

    Ingvar

    @Dakota Alone at the Landfill intro just gives me chills everytime!

    Dakota

    @Ingvar fav track from that album

    heyimgoingtoplaysomegames

    The Film Effect I’m so glad there are others that agree with me about the production! It’s paper thin in some spots, and Dave’s double bass gets drowned out just about every time he does 32nd notes. Hopefully they have it a bit more dialed-in with Death Atlas!

    CaH6633

    Probably mine too.

  83. Ammo Doom

    JANET RENO DOES IN FACT HAVE MICHELE JACKSONS NOSE!

  84. Kickin' Wing Hotboi

    Them gravity blasts though

    mittens71199

    Dave McGraw has the best gravity blasts. Anyone who disagrees is wrong, and I will fight you on this.

  85. Leroy Jenkem

    the perfect soil.

  86. jluvmix

    yeah i love death metal but this doesn't cut it for me

    gangren-pounds

    @jluvmix May I ask why? I'm not mad, I'm only curious as to why this doesn't cut it for you.

  87. patrick fewell

    The toungeXD such a badass band!

  88. defend your face

    fucking love this song so much. one of he best cattle songs imo. cant wait for their upcoming album for 2015

  89. aldo reign

    flowers are pretty and bees fuck flowers . a flower orgasm causes allergies . i hope you all die on the cum of nature

    cyber tune

    1 that part of the flower is a genital , 2 I have hay fever! lol

  90. Peter Sullivan

    Is this based off of a true story?

    defend your face

    Naw. Nice profile pic doe #hxc

  91. Antonio De Leon

    They haven't been eating people, they've been eating vegetables that were grown on high fertile and nutrient rich soil. The human body after it purges releases all of the gasses and fluids which at first kills off any plants near it but after a while it becomes a very nutrient fertilizer for plants. Our ancestors utilized this method of agriculture to grow their crops. Indians used it as well by using the bodies of fish. This way all life can continue as a process.

    ShitCore&Synth

    Its for the sake of the video dude go somewhere else with your fun ruining logic

  92. totally not a flower

    i whoud buy eaven more from that family

  93. KingMidas619

    Knight Wing

    @KingMidas619 "Nancy Grace found dead at age 104".

  94. corinmusic333
