Demon Hunter - Crucifix Lyrics



We will trample on our children 'til this world is flooded red!
No boundary for depravity,
No silence for the dead.
Now weep for the life that you've lead

We will follow vacant voices into our shallow graves,
Reiterate the verses of some self consuming slave.

Now pay for the Hell that you praise.
Every curse, lie, violation of our lives,
Every careless error of breath, corruption of our minds.

All the blood and the shame,
Defamation of name,
The weight of a wicked world!

Embodied on a thankless
Crucifix.

Embodied on a blood-soaked
Crucifix.
Crucifix.

The sacrament is broken, and all I see is red,
The Idols of Humanity ‒ they tower overhead.
Now weep for the life that you've lead
The gates have severed open, setting death upon this place
Compelling us to hope in a revolting human race
Now pay for the Hell that you praise

[Chorus:]
Every curse, lie, violation of our lives,
Every careless error of breath, corruption of our minds.

All the blood and the shame,
Defamation of name,
The weight of a wicked world!

Embodied on a thankless
Crucifix.

Embodied on a blood-soaked
Crucifix.
Crucifix.

THINE EYES, HAVE, SEEN.

Sometimes I close my eyes to escape this crooked place.
It seems these fools... well, they never learn.
I guess it's easy to see the world the way I do,
The emptiness is a promise, the sin is just the proof.

Embodied on a thankless
Crucifix.
Crucifix.

THINE EYES, HAVE, SEEN.

    Sometimes I close my eyes to escape this cruel place. I guess these fools will never learn. And I guess it’s easy to see the world the way I do. The emptiness is a promise, the sin is just the proof.

    My favorite part of this epic song.

    We will trample on our children 'til this world is flooded red
    No boundary for depravity, no silence for the dead
    Now weep for the life that you've lead
    We will follow vacant voices into a shallow grave
    Reiterate the verses of some self consuming slave
    Now pay for the hell that you praise

    Every curse, lie, violation of our lives
    Every careless shallow breath, corruption of our minds
    All the blood and the shame, defamation of name
    The weight of a wicked world embodied on a thankless, crucifix
    Embodied on a blood soaked, crucifix, crucifix

    The sacrament is broken, and all I see is red
    The idols of humanity they tower overhead
    Now weep for the life that you've lead
    The gates have severed open, setting death upon this place
    Compelling us to hope in a revolting human race
    Now pay for the hell that you praise

    Every curse, lie, violation of our lives
    Every careless shallow breath, corruption of our minds
    All the blood and the shame, defamation of name
    The weight of a wicked world embodied on a thankless, crucifix
    Embodied on a blood soaked, crucifix, crucifix

    My eyes have seen

    Sometimes I close my eyes to escape this crooked place
    It seems these fools will never learn
    I guess it's easy to see the world the way I do
    The emptiness is a promise, the sin is just the proof

    Embodied on a thankless, crucifix, crucifix

    My eyes have seen

  4. jesse walton

    Hardcore atheist but I've been following since triptych and I can't deny good music when I hear it

    AO Geph

    But you can deny the Good God when you see Him.... Interesting

    Talon Diwisch

    Hardcore atheist? Why?

  5. SwollenRhino

    This is terrible, a bunch of bible thumper's trying to a metal band!

    AO Geph

    that's not even a good grammar my boi. This is terrible, a 6 year old trying to a opinion!

    Matthew Irvine

    You trolled bad

  6. Red Sox 15

    Pretty lit

  7. The Tito TV Show

    First 15 seconds sounds like true black metal.

  8. Mark Andersen

    That's a catchy little ditty, a real toe tapper.

    Rob The Warhead Thomas

    Lol...a toe tapper...Careful...you might develop a bunion! (pure "Corn" )...

  9. Jughead Jones

    Jesus Christ is king!!! Amen!!!

  10. SPAM .03

    at first I thought some kid had recorded him playing the CD with his laptop and then out the album cover to it and uploaded that.

  11. Imię Nazwisko

    OMG its amazing!

  12. Caleb Baker

    Sometimes I close my eyes to escape this crooked place...it seems these fools, well, they never learn. I guess it's easy to see the world the way I do...
    The emptiness is a promise. The sin is just the proof.

    Hassaan A. Lal

    +Christopher Gruhn go fuck yourself ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    Bees Rubi

    . the bible isnt eternal life. thats why jesus said You search the Scriptures because you think they give you eternal life. But the Scriptures point to Me! john 5:39 so what are the scriptures then? a revealing? And This is eternal life that they may know Me. if the Logos ( Jesus) doesnt dwell in your heart you have no eternal life in you.

    Kry Kry Stott

    Madison Boyd Amen 🙏 God is good

    Emmanuel Soriano

    Awesome awesom awesome.... And fettfan you are totally correct

  20. Mysooo

    My God have great music and eternal life, what have your's?

  21. Killmesomepenguins

    Do we have to break everything down into sub-genre? Honestly? It's metal. Just metal. Metal with Christian messages. People really need to stop trying to break everything down into their neat little sub-genre categorization. Try enjoying the music instead of trying to throw a label on it that, frankly, I believe the band itself wouldn't like. This is metal. Listen to it instead of debating where it belongs.

  22. Vanrelc Skills

    The best w/

  23. Alex Macdougall

    Actually "christian" metal is just called.... metal. Pretty simple. Also arch enemy this isnt even close to the first christian metal band. Check out Tourniquet (thrash metal), Mortification (grind/death metal). Living Sacrifice (death metal), Crimson Moonlight or Frost LIke Ashes (black metal). All bands from early nineties or older. And all seriously heavy bands.

  24. Farrin Courteoreille

    Hell hath no fury at all......

  25. Farrin Courteoreille

    yep and when we wake up he says "shit there up!" hes a coward!!!

  26. AES

    nu metal ? so the first Christian " metal " band is nu metal ? poor ... that band is even banned in Metallum for destroying the concept of pioneer metal bands ... mmm still , good try to defeat metal ...

  27. Issac Cox

    Your right its Christian Dark metal but an uncommon nick name that I would personally prefer is called ethereal metal.

  28. Joona P

    Yes this is a christian band but it's metalcore. Christian metalcore band. Christian metal bands are called white metal or christian metal but it's still metalcore.

  29. byhourglass

    Otimo som!

  30. Jhonny Senay

    Christian metal

  31. Rafhael Fernandes

    kkkkkkkkk chrischan

  32. sleaf6

    You know it's kinda funny when non-believers say they love this song... "will these fools will they ever learn", no offense guys, but they're talking about you.

  38. Joshua Ploth-Olsen

    The seven fallen angels dislike this video

  39. Henrique Figueiredo Araújo

    Yeah. The music is too good to be black or death metal.

  40. Henrique Figueiredo Araújo

    And Azazel, Lilith, Mephistopheles, Arioch, Mamon, Belphegor, etc.

  41. Henrique Figueiredo Araújo

    And Belzebu, Ose, Adramalech, Shax, Murmux, Baal, Amon, Belial, Naberius, Leviathan, Asmodeus, etc.

  42. Rayssa Vieira

    Muito bom ^^

  43. Henrique Figueiredo Araújo

    Black or Death Metal?

    AO Geph

    Life Metal

  44. Emanuel Chan

    I love this song *-*

    Karnage Karn

    Emanuel Chan me too brother

  45. sleaf6

    and six of his demons.

  46. Pedro Paulo

    Vish muito bom, velho !

  47. Octaviaus Dawns

    and 4 of his demons

  48. Octaviaus Dawns

    Lets head bang now!

  49. Octaviaus Dawns

    Its fast paced its almost i emphasize almost like rap or hip hop

  50. Bmartling

    I don't see where you draw that conclusion.

  51. SparkieGT

    more like their original sound

  52. Octaviaus Dawns

    Hmm i think so since it is so fast paced!

  53. MOPARPSYCHO

    not even close

  54. Octaviaus Dawns

    Amazing how this almost hip-hop metal lol

  55. Jason Brown

    Sure sounds different on the song itself, doesn't it? Shows how much I NEED to get the album.

  56. Todd A. Buck

    not to start crap but its actually "embodied on a blood-soaked crucifix", i looked at the lyric thing that comes with the cd

    Bryan Edwards

    thank you I've never actually figured out what it was lol

    Tao 타키오

    Makes more sense

  57. Todd A. Buck

    demon hunter is so boss

  58. Jason Brown

    One definite thing can be said, they're unabashedly forward and honest in their lyrics- that everything negative in human nature is "embodied on a thankless crucifix", especially true in today's "all man is inherently good, I don't need a savior" bs times.

  59. Jason Murillo

    this is what the angels listen to before they set out to defeat some demons!

    Jeremy W.

    Jason Murillo I'll agree to that.

    Kry Kry Stott

    Jason Murillo lol Preach it bro 🙌

    Arthur Whitheld

    Jason Murillo Whatever, they listen to this 24-7.

    Emmanuel Soriano

    Jason Murillo hahaha yah they do...old soilder souls ..they dont cone for human bloof they come for evil demons of great power aaaaashgaga!!

  60. TheMindsShadow

    I see what you are talking about. It doesn't bother me personally, but the 'bullet hole' doesn't look quite like a 'bullet hole' anymore. Great album, as usual.

  61. thebullfrogfarm

    Eh. i guess that makes sense. It's still badass.

  62. Mournforthelost96

    i liked the others, but this one looks a little too much like a 3 eyed demon skull. just a bit to much for my taste. the actual album is awesome though.

  63. ni seek

    preacher man, please calm down. we all know

  64. thebullfrogfarm

    hahahahahaha. this has been on every album cover they've ever had.. are you serious?

    AO Geph

    it changes to different variations of Demons

  65. Carl Toth

    The power of Christ compels you.

  66. Ben Miller

    how true

  67. admiralMcmufin

    lol really...

  68. Mournforthelost96

    I love this band and their faith, but i got to say, not a big fan of the new album cover. i know what it's supposed to be, a demon with a bullet hole in its forehead, but i think they went a little overboard with this one. still love the album itself!!!

  69. Anthony Jimison

    the Tryptyarch and Summer of Darkness, also their Demon Hunter album.

  70. joshua thompson

    They're songs give Chills, and envoke a place in me Where I can escape everything.

  71. joshua thompson

    Every album, Gets better and Better.

  72. Capatina Nicusor

    Every time i hear a song from them it....sounds better

  73. FinCastify

    When this album released.. SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY

  74. starkiller9695

    Storm the Gates of Hell

  75. Toondude10

    Look up their song Storm the Gates of Hell, it's shorter but I think you'll love it!

  76. OfficialFrosthammer

    this is my favourite song of Demon Hunter and probably the only one I like... Did they record some similar songs to this? (I'm new in this stuff)

  77. ZombieSlayerInc100

    Satan disliked this

  78. chaos9469

    Why is it everytime I go ona Demon Hunter song there is always some christian debate? WHO GIVES A SHIT. Its good music and thats all I care about

  79. TargonTheDragon

    screamo/metal music is the only music that attacks real life problems headon with intention to win. DH creates REAL defiance in me (no pun intended) to abstain from sinning and help others do the same. people just dont like being told they are doing the wrong thing and go on living their "perfect" yet sinful lives. they just dont want to change because it takes effort and the world as a whole will hate you for being a christian. the bible even warns you "they will hate you b/c of my name".

  80. JohnCHUNKYCatts

    U r both wrong screamo is a genre, not being rude. For ex Underoath is screamo and theyre defintly NOT metal even thogh they scream

  81. eyeam19able

    it's stupid to say that you hate Christian music, on a christian music video, when the message is the exact same in the Hymnals and soft christian radio you're referring to.

  82. Hi You

    I got chills. Not lying like everyone always says about every freaking song. I literally got chills. Amazing song, album, and band.

  83. Superschlafanzug

    Proxtube=Fuck you GEMA

  84. Brandon Caryer

    tech...this is nu-metal...but who cares these guys rock

  85. DownfaIIx

    Screamo isn't a genre =/

  86. Agent

    perfect for one of meh characters xD

  87. Jslim Threenine

    The beginning of this solo sounds exactly like Metallica's One. Just noticed that. Awesome, original, brutal song nonetheless.

  88. Beldar Conehead

    its odd. this band has changed so much. i had a friend who after listening to the first album said he couldnt stand it. then a few albums later he was like, meh, they got a bit better, and after hearing these songs from there newest album he says it makes his ears feel like erected penises...ive actually liked this band from the very beginning and personally like all there songs so far=)

  89. Vehemex

    as is all other songs and leaks...

  90. Don'tLetYourMemesBeSteelDreams

    The weight of a wicked world...

  91. bigm832

    I agree with you 100% but in my opinion is, I could care less what people think about me when I jam to this music loud and proud in my car.. I pretty much make my presence known haha... Just the other day I was wearing a "As I Lay Dying" shirt at the grocery store and people were looking at me as if I was the devil and I just said to myself people just need to be relaxed now a days..

  92. Marcell Edwards

    this is probably my favorite song off the new album. awesome.

  93. Wade Bloodgood

    WHY THE HELL IS METAL/SCREAMO THE ONLY UNACCEPTED MUSIC IN SOCIETY, AND WHY IS IT RUDE TO PLAY IN PUBLIC? FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION... COME ON... SERIOUSLY. DEMON HUNTER IS AMAZING

  94. Don'tLetYourMemesBeSteelDreams

    The weight of a wicked world...

    CRUCIFIX!

  95. IlikeCHEESEonMYKnees

    @stickman2012 Exactly. But what does that have to do with what I said? Lol

  96. Daniel

    By True Defiance, they mean to defy the nature of the worldy embodiment. The world tells you that being a Christian is a waste, and stupid. The world tells you its okay to live in pleasure towards yourself and that you are your own righteousness, you can be your own god. Demon Hunter defies those beliefs. And they will stop at nothing to tell the world what they believe in, and the world cannot and will not tell them what they believe in is a waste.

  97. ShadeCoil

    1 person deserves to be put up on a cross lol

  98. lawngnome412

    i kinda like triptych, summer of darkness and such better cause its less speed metalish

  99. lawngnome412

    i dont disagree that this is a great album, i'm still partial to the Triptych as my fav or theirs. and the first one. im glad to see they still kick it out

  100. MyToothpasteHangover

    This song really deserves a music video to go with it :D
