Demon Hunter - The World Is A Thorn Lyrics



The gavel has fallen, along with the rest.
Are we expected to settle for this?
Bring us the plague, lead us away.
Blacken tomorrow with ash of today.
Can't you see the fabric of our standards wearing thin?
See your world in its grave at the hands of the enslaved.

Won't bow to man. Won't bow to government.
Won't trust in a failed system of self-fulfilling lust.
Won't love a world where my God is mocked.
I defy.

Oh, a kiss on the serpent's head.
We walk in the line of deceit, the walking dead.
Can't you feel the ground of our discretion giving way?
Refusal of hope, solution demise.
Bury the truth in a mountain of lies.

Won't bow to man.
Won't bow to government.
Won't trust in a failed system of self-fulfilling lust.
Won't love a world where my God is mocked.
I defy.

This is what you try to sell me.
Subjective nothingness.
Pull your sickness from my throat.
Let me breathe the truth.
Let me breathe the truth.

Won't bow to man.
Won't bow to government.
Won't bow to greed.
Won't bow to false hope.
Won't bow to self.
Won't bow to modern code.
Won't sell my soul to a dead world. I defy.

    If Demon Hunter started a rebellion, whatever they're against is fucked

    This is an angry song but in a good way to tell the devil to stop

  4. BerwynSigns

    I agree with every lyric in this song. I am a Roman Catholic

  5. BerwynSigns

    "Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him." 1 John 2:15

  6. Erif The fox

    I respect rock bands for so many thing but. THE SPEED THEY PLAY IT IS FREAKIN AMAZING. Also 7 deadly sins?

    You can head bang in all speeds to this song. Like midday worship session for the Lord ha lol!

  16. TheLazyWanderer

    No reason for all of you to be in an argument with each other, seriously...

  17. Tommy Wales

    THIS IS = our carnal driven world, today.

  18. Mauricio

    Man, that chorus though. "Won't bow to man, won't bow to government, won't trust a failed system of self-fulfilling lust, won't love a world where my God is mocked. I defy". That stuff hits hard. With all the narcissistic bull, greed, materialism, disregard for innocent lives, government lies, and the degenerate "anything goes" mentality of society today, this song empowers me to stand out and not give in to any of that "modern code".

    Sunny Skye

    Me too. :) This is a song to slay a giant to.

  19. sh9683

    the song rings even truer of today's society then when it was made. Demon Hunter sees what is really going on, God bless

    Carson Burgess

    sh9683 truth. nothing but.

  20. Jared Wilkins

    Thrash 🤘

  21. JOSEPHMAN36

    there is an obvious slayer influence here

    TheLazyWanderer

    For now we could call DH "Christian Slayer". For this song at least.

    Kodak237

    duckeradin13 probably more along the lines of Living Sacrifice than Slayer

    AngelusVastator

    The beginning had a slight Angel of Death vibe.

    Pennyroyltea

    Won't sell my soul to dead world

    None

    Living Sacrifice.

  22. ThePhoenix

    I defy.

  23. Chocolate Pizza

    this is hard as fuck. harder than most secular music.

    That One Ford Guy

    Your name is wonderful.

    Garybaldo

    LOL you're right

  24. TOMAHAWK51

    if u guy turn the speed to 2 it sound even awesomer

  25. Dreamdecipher 1994

    I defy.

  26. Chase Braley

    I thaut it he say the devil has fallen along with the rest.

    Kry Kry Stott

    Chase Braley same lol

    Danny D's World

    Nah, it's gavel.

  27. Melanie Walker

    He's just marketing noise

  28. aragorn767

    That moment Demon Hunter plays a straight ahead Thrash Metal song.

    Nate Kent

    It sounds more like deathcore I think

    Vepur

    They're the same thing.

    Rat Crucifier

    @Vepur deathcore and thrash the same thing?

    JDizzleNO2

    @Rat Crucifier its not.

    Shy Guy #585

    @JDizzleNO2
    It’s close enough to qualify as the same thing

  29. Kankichi12

    This goes so freaking hard dang I love it

    Absolutely true. O God save us all

    and still.

    Yep, I fuckin defy

  34. William The Whale

    I think of Jack Phillips (the baker who refused to bake a cake for a same-sex couple) when I hear this song. Great lyrics, Demon Hunter is great with lyrics.

    Caleb Begley

    Look, I believe being gay is a sin, there I said it. But, I'm not going to judge other people. Matthew 7 days not to, and Jesus also said we should love others. God said to stone many different people, because the wages of sin is death according to Romans 6. We don't do that anymore because Jesus paid the death penalty for each and every person through His death on the cross, thus eliminating that, and making it so that you can choose not to accept God, and God will, probably be sad about it, but He won't stop you. That would make him the tyrant radical atheists paint him to be. God never intended for death to reign, and God never intended for sin to enter the world. If Adam and Even hadn't have screwed up, then death wouldn't exist, we'd all be immortal, and we'd see God everyday. But, they did screw up and now, like the Bible says, our righteousness is comparable to that of filthy rags.

    Matthew Smith

    Oh yeah? I reject all the biblical views of the truth
    Dismiss it as the folklore of the times
    I won't be force fed prophecies
    From a book of untruths for the weakest mind...may your bible choke on it's lies.

    William The Whale

    Matthew Smith Actually this is kind of funny because in the time since I wrote this comment, I've become an atheist and now wildly disagree with it. It's terrible that I used to think like that

    Cameron Helterbran

    William The Whale I will pray for you, that you may be saved.

    R. I.

    I pray as well, sad to see a good man of god desert his religion.

  35. Simon Wartanian

    0:56 OOOOOOOOOHHHHHHH!!

  36. Tyrenxz

    [email protected] actually it does make sense. The bible dies say nobody will believe in Jesus christ which is why God exist. His words are what makes his truth right. The bible alreafy has evidence of what is going on today. His words are telling the message today yet None will believe in the word of the Lord. Like jesus said, "All shall listen to my story but will never hear" meaning you will listen but never understand his meaning or his truth Cuz you guys dont want to.

  37. Kruelable

    @SeedsOfHatred
    "First he asserts that the Devil's existence is axiomatic, and then suggests that the very fact that we don't believe in him is proof that he exists. This is what we call an "illogical argument"." Believing in someone is different from believing in the existence of someone.

  38. II-Farquaad-II

    great song. This is what America needs to become.

  39. Arbiter11790

    Shout out to The Walking Dead.


    This is a joke obviously. 

  40. SeedsOfHatred

    Whatever you wanna think, kiddo.
    Cheers.

  41. SeedsOfHatred

    Yes, I know what you mean. You mean that you completely misunderstand the situation at hand. Either because you lack reading comprehension or because you lack critical thinking skills. Either one is as likely as the other, and neither are of any consequence to me.

    You grasp it or you don't. Not my problem.

  42. SeedsOfHatred

    It was not philosophical. It asserted the existence of a devil in its premise.
    Go back and read again, kiddo. Twice, if need be.

  43. SeedsOfHatred

    It was, actually. And considering the fact that you didn't understand my retort, thus demonstrating a lack of reading comprehension, it is understandable that you didn't comprehend his point, either.

  44. SeedsOfHatred

    "Things get pretty complicated when no proof of the Devil is somehow proof of the Devil."
    Welcome to circular reasoning, folks. First he asserts that the Devil's existence is axiomatic, and then suggests that the very fact that we don't believe in him is proof that he exists. This is what we call an "illogical argument".

  45. PITviper217

    I like some screaming in songs, but, I used to tell myself this was too much. Didn't know if I'd be able to really hear what's being said. But lately this how I've been feeling. Great lyrics, maybe this band will grow on me.

  46. Shawn G

    Good lyrics. Man, there is so much anger in this song, and this song has awesome lyrics! The lyrics are so true, and the lyrics speak with so much boldness and anger. It is awesome!

  47. John A

    Not to mention poor grammar.

  48. David Levenson

    You're making us look bad if you are

  49. Danny G the Nature Guy

    Absolutly Amazing!!!

  50. thebullfrogfarm

    Nah dude I agree with you, I just really like that quote. The Usual Suspects. Great movie.

  51. TheGameDeviant

    To be honest the existence of a devil has never been proven. I'm not saying a devil doesn't exist but its never been proven one does. But human malevolence has and the only evil things that have happened in the world was because of someone with evil free will

  52. crashteamraceingdude

    I could care less honestly if he is such a good all knowing forgiving god he could of just forgave us rather then sending his son to die, so you sir are the ignorant one. I would much rather hang with satan cause at least he doesn't judge us humans for not being perfect.

    R. I.

    Lol what kind of idiotic state of mind where you in?

  53. Flotsam Jetsam

    I guess Jews have always been good at math for a reason...spelling, not so much?

  54. Arkadiusz Zajączkowski

    Mercy is coming!!! See in Old Jerusalem!!!

  55. Gabriel Montano

    Man you are ignorant god sent his only son so that me might have a chance cause he knows we are imperfect that's why theirs confessions its not like you sind no more chance for you! No if you go down its your own fault so don't blame god for sending you down when you have the chance and you say I don't want to.

  56. Arkadiusz Zajączkowski

    6666/6666

  57. Josh Taylor

    I have always loved this song

  58. Cody Standingwater

    I feel like being a grammar Nazi XD
    I'm*
    Jew*
    soul*
    I would also like to say, What the hell is your problem? o.O You really want to represent Jews as the type of people that kill those who oppose you, or do not like you? That gives the world a very bad picture as to what kind of people you are.

  59. thebullfrogfarm

    I'm guessing you've never seen "The Usual Suspects". Anyways, you're pretty much completely wrong in your statement. God never once said that anyone had to be perfect to "meet his needs." In fact, the Bible specifically states that NOBODY is perfect. It says that everyone is a sinner and we all fall short of perfection. I don't really care if you believe in a God or not, but if you're going to criticize one then at least know what you're talking about.

  60. crashteamraceingdude

    And the biggest trick your god ever pulled was convincing you that you have to be perfect to meet his needs or else you're going to hell after saying that he loved us all dearly, in my opinion, he is a hypocritical scum bag no different then the devil. I don't worship a God nor a Devil but I'm just going to plain out say at least Lucifer doesn't judge most of humanity for being the way we were meant to be. An imperfect race.

  61. Krimzen Fenix

    I couldn't have said it better myself.

    Death to demons..lets get em..:)

  64. WeezFree

    One of my favourite quotes!!! :) :) :) ..!

  65. Killamanjaro95

    I agree :3

  66. Ihsahn1983

    This goes to Everyone. no matter what you believe in everyone has different views and different beliefs. Wasting precious time putting others down or trying to force your views is the exact opposite of what life should be about. It honestly baffles me how many Christians and non believers alike argue.

  67. PhoenixPhantom1337

    I thank you for the tough. Its very kind. :) I hope you succeed in life my friend. Sorry if what i said offended you in some way but i had to get it out of my chest. This is my opinion of religion but therefore it doesnt mean i dont respect you for your beliefs. Thanks again and have a nice day.

  68. Steel Evangelist

    I beg of you all to pray for this person that he will see the love of God, will be open to the gospel, and have a joy filled life. Again, I don't want to start any arguments or upset you but felt I should at least tell you these things.

  69. Steel Evangelist

    I don't want to start any argument, but I feel as though you have never read the Bible if that is your stance on it. The Bible teaches love (love your enemies; do good to those who hate you) rather than hate, contentment (be content in all things; Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have) rather than envy and greed. I'm not sure why you hold this opinion of us, but I pray that you will at least try reading the Bible. Also, to all Christian readers of this comment

  70. PhoenixPhantom1337

    The entire world, Shattered appart from fear of the church. They did the most horrible things, nazis, did what they think was right, that means, defending their homes. but christianity? BIBLE? please. its nothing but another way for powerful people to make money on poor people's back in exchange of false hopes.bible taught men to hate, envy, greed for the ''love of god''.you are clearly another christian extremists who dont know any better.i cant blame you, a book is dicting your life after all

  71. Davon Gowins

    I love the lord

  72. granzern

    autocorrect: seal, you will kill his seal

  73. PhoenixPhantom1337

    The bible who has been writen by MEN, and you let your life go for a book written by MEN? Thats just... i dont even.. you know what? For my part, Nazism is not the worst. because nazism lasted what, 8-9 years? Christianity did the same with different goals, on a period of over 500 years. so who is the worst now?

  74. brothersx2

    dont you mean a ginger

  75. PhoenixPhantom1337

    Like i said, you are 13, and i like the satanic logos and symbols, im not praising him or whatever, i just believe that there is good and evil everywhere around us, and religious people are to fucking dumb to understand that all this shit round us? its their fault.

  76. PhoenixPhantom1337

    Thank you for replying to a 4 months old comment you 13 years old religious extremists. i like satan because there is evil and good everywhere. i like satanic symbols and logos better than biblic ones. its my right. so fuck you and have a nic- never mind, die in a fire you judgemental piece of shit.

  77. Nekrotik Plays

    oh christian you are a god.

  78. woody3757

    uhh dude, why is the satanic symbol your picture on here? 0_0

  79. PhoenixPhantom1337

    So is karma.

  80. St. Gideon

    No problem. I would have replied earlier, but unfortunately my time machine is broken at the moment.
    Time is a bitch.

  81. PhoenixPhantom1337

    Well thanks to you sergeant Sarcasm for replying to a 3 months old comment.

  82. St. Gideon

    Thanks for showing the utmost respect in capitalizing 'God'. It's much appreciated by all of us.

  83. DylanD253

    Oh gosh if I heard a nickel everytime I heard this. If someone was on the path to an eternal hell wouldnt it be pretty kind as to warn them? Id say so, Evolution can be so easily talked about among schools but if creation is mentioned its shunned? therefore those beliefs are nessicarly shoved down my throat.

  84. Francois T.-Gaudreault

    Yeah, satan rules! He is pretty badass!

  85. Francois T.-Gaudreault

    All religions are fucking bullshit... But this song sound great!!

  86. Francois T.-Gaudreault

    All religions are fucking bullshit...

  87. thebullfrogfarm

    hahaha you're an idiot.

  88. thebullfrogfarm

    "The greatest trick the devil ever pulled, was convincing the world he didn't exist."

  89. angelfire3000

    Satan hasn't had to influence humanity that much. Malevolence dwells within human nature after all. The destruction in this world is being caused by humans, not god or the devil.
