Decapitated - The Knife Lyrics




Oceans mumble their songs to deaf ears of sands
Mountains guard their dominions until the end of time
Rivers carve hieroglyphs only read by the birds
Lion hunts antelope, hyenas fight over the corpse
Breed then kill or get killed, holy circle of life
Red sun rises again, chokes cold light of stars
I sharpen the knife

Wooden Handle
Bolster, heel
Edge of cold steel
Mirror mirror
Speak to to me

Now the painting is done, bored models dress up
German writer, Asian poet, both expect Nobel prize
New Picasso's sketch on sale, bids mostly from Japan
Hagia Sophia gets new roof, circus hires new clown
Ballerinas bleed but dance, famous composer gets bald
All music's already been played, critics are always right
And I sharpen the knife

Wooden handle
Bolster, heel
Edge of cold steel
Mirror mirror
Speak to me

News on breakfast television drown in a shit of lies
UN troops storm Kabul, or Cairo, or Baghdad
That war was wrong but this one is so right
Cure for cancer nearly there- perfect drug, decent price
White smoke covers Rome, habemus papam
Farmer in Montana breeds two-headed cows
I still sharpen the knife

Wooden handle
Bolster, heel
Edge of cold steel
Mirror mirror
Speak to me

Decapitated The Knife Comments
  1. shane lauer

    The 90s was more evil. All this music is technical death metal. Go listen to some real death metal like old Morbid Angel. This crap is like Mudvayne or staind.

    Julian Perasso

    mudvayne , staind so this is nu metal for you ? hahahaaa

    This track is pretty rad even though I'm not the biggest fan of this album. Sounds like good mix of technicality and groove. Even Rasta's shouting doesn't bother me that much.

  4. Aminkaza

    I'm sorry but this is garbage (organised mess).. metalhead speaking..

  6. TheSavageRebellion1996

    Decapitated are brutal!!!! My taste of music indeed!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. Businessman

    The part starting at 2:20 is gold

    Sebastian Lenz

    yeah. sick as hell.

  8. ヴィラモール宣誓ブレーカー

    a view from a hole please

  9. James Chancé

    saw them in paris man ! What a show !

  10. MultiMeschi

    Where did you see them?
    I saw them in Frankfurt last tuesday. Fuckin' awesome!

  11. Anonymous civilian

    I love how the guitar sounds specially in this song!.

  12. Mikołaj Żytkiewicz

    This album is one hell of a brutal gear-fucking. AWESOME!

  13. James Chancé

    then go listen to it.

  14. James Chancé

    Same here dude ! It used to be somehow boring like a constant pitch no variation. but here the guy has made a major leap in his technic and passing through his emotions in his vocals. I saw them and meshuggah last night. DAMN IT WAS FUCKING GOOD !

  15. Moonsorrow15

    You're not the only one, Rafal is a brutal vocalist, and people say they are Decapitated 'fans' if they were fans they would like Rafel. Fave song from the album

  16. flerper derper

    Miss sphere's of madness? come on its a solid track but this band is evolving so amazingly. I love watching their progression. Hail vogg, new vocalist is awesome as well.

  17. dustmouse

    This is fucking good. These guys are still a force to be reckoned with.

  18. Deathrider 23

    krimh left?

  19. Chris Linder

    DIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  20. Chris Linder

    Also - I know I'm going Decapitated crazy right now, but the part after the solo (@ 3:25 roughly) is badass - the notes just flow together so nicely...

  21. Chris Linder

    I totally agree. I've been listening myself since the Nihility album. Decapitated's gone through a lot of changes since then. Sauron's great; and so was Covan and now I've gotten into this guy = almost reminds me of Max Cavalera. Point being: Decapitated will always rule and therefore will always sound great - no matter who's backing Vogg up. Also, this is my favorite song on the album.

  22. Ivan Bićanić

    maan Covan had such an awesome voice..listening to Nihility again..R.I.P Vitek

  23. Max Medlow

    Go listen to it then

  24. ExtantDan

    Fungus, probably.

  25. Nate Kankelfitz

    Sound similar to older Textures

  26. Located In Nothing

    new vocalist is awesome ... stop complaining!

  27. Dost Khan

    they are coming in my country ^^ nepal soon

  28. Andy

    It's really great. People are usually pricks when a band changes something be it their look or their music but the majority of people are enjoying the new Decapitated and hopefully they'll be around for years to come!

  29. gececiyim89

    I miss speheres of madness too.

  30. szameth

    The creativity put in combinations of riff and rhythm is outstanding!

  31. ethan taylor

    i miss spheres ofmadness

  32. atomsktheforgiver

    sounds like old meshuggah. i can manage

  33. Valerie Sweet

    my favorite decapitated song <3 and this is from a girl's point of view :))

  34. jakpot1993

    is it possible that I am the only one who like their new vocalist ;D ^^ I just love this album ^^

  35. obscura95

    rafals live vocals are fucking brutal

  36. Slayerforeternity

    i used to not like their new singer but something grew on me with him

  37. michaelz6366
