Cattle Decapitation - Dead Set On Suicide Lyrics




Irrational, illogical and preposterously ludicrous
Denatured, deprogrammed to blindly
go against what we are
Human ideas turned concrete, material
Our funeral drape now hewn from
the fabrics of imagination

Turning the other check - this never worked withing the wild
You'd be a meal in seconds - cycle of life/natural law
Now see this Jesus Christ, a thorn in the side of right
No fight or flight? Anything else is simply suicidal

No love for enemies, I see their eyes -
waiting there in the shadows
Extended hands will only be severed -
you've condemned yourself to the gallows

Jesus Christ is suicide.

Sighting the blind, sheltering the poor
Blood into wine, but all is fair in blood and gore

Sensational, unanimous, we need a hero
Unguided, this chaos that makes humans what they are
How neutered, how secure, new drones to shovel the manure
Keep the masses sedated, validating their
tendencies for hatred

Jesus Christ is suicide.

Alas, so sweet are the sentiments
Aghast I stand in your ignorance... unclean

he must hate every one of us
He would enslave every one of us... forever...

No love for enemies, I see their eyes -
waiting there in the night
Extended hands will only be severed -
now you realize Christ is death.

    A_Lost_1

    xXLerøy NajatahnXx neck yourself

    Evan R

    I think it's much more complex than that. I think it's about how compassion in this world never works (contrary to what Jesus preached) because our primordial violent tendencies always prevail over logic.

    Ryan Walsh

    @Leroy Najatahn at least the song is real and exists

    Leroy Najatahn

    @Ryan Walsh Ooookaaayy then....
    Some people (like Travis Ryan for instance) can't help but be offended by the story of a guy who helped a lot of people with both his words and actions, healed a lot of people, defied his local religious leaders (yes you read that correctly; I said "defied his local religious leaders"), and was ultimately executed for the sake of keeping the people from trying to overthrow the government. There's a lot more to the story of Jesus than just a bunch of religious stuff. Poor little butthurt atheists are too busy being butthurt at Christians to think about being mad at actual Christians, and instead say shit like "fuck your God" this and "useless fairytale" that. (I believe I'm actually quoting Travis on that second one). It's about as cliche as a Christian saying "would you like to talk about our lord and savior Jesus Christ". Frankly it gets old and annoying real fast. If someone wants to write some anti-religious stuff, then they should write something that speaks of the religion itself, as it currently stands. Something about the way some Christians still think metal is "the devil's music", and how it's all personal opinion. You know, write something that's actually relevant to modern life? But no, they have to specifically attack the biblical characters whom they don't actually believe in to begin with. It's so stupid, I die a little inside every time I read a lyric that sounds that uninspired.
    Also, the Bible is historical. The books it's compiled of are very old. The Bible contains songs and poems, letters, ancient customary rules (some decent, some not so much), and some historical accounts taken by people who lived during that time. Saying that Jesus didn't exist is like saying that Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle didn't exist. These philosophers were dead long before Jesus was ever born, but apparently there's no doubt that they existed. A valid point would be "well we don't know for 100% sure that Jesus was the 'son of God'". That I'd understand, but denying the fact that he lived at all just feels drastic.
    I could say more, but I think the reply is already long-winded enough.

    Kanelel

    @Evan R I think it's partly that (though I don't think it's saying that you *can't* live that way, just that it's suicidal to do so) but there are also a couple secondary points made.

    >How neutered, how secure, new drones to shovel the manure. Keep the masses sedated, validating their tendencies for hatred.
    These lines are fairly obviously a statement on how those in power have used Christianity to keep their followers subservient and hating who they need them to. "Opiate of the masses" and all that.

    >he must hate every one of us. He would enslave every one of us... forever...
    This line is either reinforcing that last point or bringing up the problem of evil.

    There are also lines calling religion illogical and ignorant throughout, and the mention of being "unclean" is possibly a reference to those othered by the church.

    Overall it's a pretty standard Nietzsche style "Christianity is slave morality" take with some modern moral outrage at the church sprinkled in, which is a perfectly fitting message for a song that goes this fucking hard.

    Best grind-whatever you want to put here song ever!

  43. Daddio Bolocko

    I feel like the audio at 0:59 - 1:05 is from a short film called Begotten. Not sure though

    andreas nordin

    @killerbl4ckman If you watch the in studio footage of when they made this album, the scene where he records that is in there somewhere :)

    Haithem Hammouda

    @killerbl4ckman Where did the choking sound on “Dead Set On Suicide” come from?That’s a sample of a dude being hung. You definitely need to read the lyrics to understand that, decipher what’s going on.  It’s an actual hanging?              Yes, I put that together through a few different means I’ll keep to myself.         http://www.invisibleoranges.com/2012/05/interview-travis-ryan-of-cattle-decapitation/

    Retro Renaissance

    pretty sure begotten is a silent film

    BLACK JACKET MAN

    Begotten isn't short. It's tedious and boring.

  44. Luke Fortune

    I saw all of these positive comments and was like: no way this song is that good. This is a masterpiece, you just don't even know. Holy fuck I was smiling so hard I probably looked like a goof. Just sitting outside high as fuck listening to this smiling like an idiot...fml.

    Sickayda Mars

    @Luke Fortune true

    Hassan Saeed

    You should check out Infant Annihilator

    Metal555Fan

    @Hassan Saeed Ahah, I love Infant Annihilator, their new album is probably gonna be my album of the year

    Hassan Saeed

    @Hiram Avila It is Grindcore

    Daniel Saldanha

    @T-rat Deathgrind / Progressive Death Metal

    T-rat

    +Daniel Saldanha
    if your going to go there then

    progressive blackened melodic vegetarian deathgrind.

  63. Pumpkin Man

    This song is berserker as fuck! I love it! It's not the most lyrically brutal song on the album. But it is definitely the most brutal song on the album in terms of raw power of voice and instrumentals.

    Levi

    They go all out on this one

  64. DemonicSeraphim

    Travis Ryan's high vocals are fucking amazing!

    DemonicSeraphim

    @Stephanie Prince What are you trying to gain going completely out of your way just to say something like this then? Seems like I upset you a little too much on that last video.

    Stephanie Prince

    lol grow up lil death metal boy I was just rying to get you to respect someone elses style. Hey I like Pantara , Slipknot and a good friend of mine played in Sepultura n I also live Fleetwood Mac n I love SPM n Conejo n Psycho Realm n Berlin n Trans X n now SAD BOY. Just dont  b so quick to dis a mf"r.

    DemonicSeraphim

    @Stephanie Prince I am grown up. I just didn't like the song. Gang shit is stupid. That's my opinion though. People should respect each other's opinions. If you don't like death metal, fine. It doesn't effect me. You see what I'm saying? That's why I don't see why people get mad over something as simple as "This sucks." I understand what you're saying though. Oh that's awesome. ;p

    ToXiC HoLoCaUsT 555

    +Stephanie Prince so you're trying to get him to respect someone else's style by calling it retarded? Hmm well you're pretty retarded.

    Stephanie Prince

    Paffffffft! um ya

  65. Jason Bonilla

    I love this band but i cant lie that im SLIGHTLY disapointed and offended seeing as i am a christian. :( still a great band though.

    onlyREALmetalisGOOD

    @asuko2012 @Pure Underground Metal @Dustin Drake @Rusty Shackleford +di3cast All of you guys are posers. A real metalhead does not care whether or not his bretheren are Christian, Atheist, Pagan, Satanist, etc.

    Dustin

    @onlyREALmetalisGOOD Haha all I said was "ha" and you're judging me from that. I love how a computer screen gives everyone a opinion.

    Captain Shugu'Noth

    @Jason Bonilla What a community, right?

    ToXiC HoLoCaUsT 555

    +onlyREALmetalisGOOD Exactly, but what is tee point of saying that he's Christian? Who really want to hear that.

    Akamaholic

    I'm a Christian and I love metal. There's a certain point where a song is too brutal to not listen to so I'm always willing to ignore the lyrics. And beside, I know they're wrong anyway so might was well let them have some fun.

  66. Josh Mosh

    JESUS CHRIST IS SUICIDE!!

    Leroy Najatahn

    Ha, that's just not true XD

    BLACK JACKET MAN

    If only this had any understandable meaning....

    jack manny

    Religion is us killing our own species

    Rick Ross

    @BLACK JACKET MAN You seriously don't get the meaning? Read the lyrics I'm sure you'll figure it out.

  67. Josh Mosh

    How can the 3 that disliked this song not like this song? What the fuck?!?

  68. Josh B

    1:05 boom

  69. kjrody21

    shouldn't you be eating breakfast

  70. Jacob Walter

    1:06 might be the heaviest thing I've ever heard in any genre of music

  71. Paintmaster5f00

    Best album of 2012!!!

  72. Paintmaster5f00

    there's three ways to listen to music. 1) To listen to something because it sounds nice or feels good, or has a catchy hook. 2) To throw something on in the background to set a mood. 3) To ACTIVELY listen to a track from a musician's perspective, and essentially listening for complexity and virtuosity.
    Once you get used to listening in the style of 3, a little bit of 1 kicks in and you learn to enjoy the visceral onslaught of riffs and rhythm, bobbing or perhaps even banging your head.

  73. ImmortalGurl97

    Who cares whether it's death metal or grindcore? Classifying its genre will not change the sound of the song, so what's the point?
    Just listen to the damn song, and if you don't like it, change it.

    Crooked fucker

    ImmortalGurl97 I call it death grind so people don't get mad.

    Shaly Cøunt

    it's a technical deathgrind

  74. ImmortalGurl97

    Obsessed with 2:38 :3

  75. Cody Hunsberger

    Most deathcore is crap but Infant Annihilator is the exception to the entire genre I think.

    Izaiah Avila

    Cody Hunsberger This is DeathGrind

    Trey Greypaws

    So? Lol

  76. Griffin Zaldatte

    Travis Ryan has the best gutterals ever and some of the most original and brutal disgusting sounding highs and middle screams ever! \m/

  77. jeleopard

    1:48 just blows me away. I have my iTunes EQd so that section just... slays.

  78. jneild93

    You know that feeling when you want a song to just fucking pummel your ears? Yeah.

  79. TheSanityAssassin44

    All is fair in blood and gore.

  80. Atticus TheDeathMetaller

    Absolutely love this shit!

  81. Multifister

    so heavy that my balls dropped... again

  82. itbecarteryo

    This made me realize my love of grindcore

  83. Savannah Miller

    Fucking sick.

  84. Thomas Poulin

    easily the best song off the album, absolutely crushing

  85. Jack Krstevski

    only 78 views, this video has one of the best quality's on youtube!! Wicked song
