Jones, Grace - Corporate Cannibal Lyrics

Pleased to meet you, pleased to have you on my plate
Your meat is sweet to me
Your destiny
Your fate

You're my life support, your life is my sport

I'm a man-eating machine [x2]

You won't hear me laughing, as I terminate your day
You can't trace my footsteps, as I walk the other way

I can't get enough prey, pray for me [x2]
(I'm a man-eating machine)
Corporate cannibal, digital criminal
Corporate cannibal, eat you like an animal

Employer of the year, grandmaster of fear
My blood flows satanical,
Mechanical, masonical and chemical
Habitual ritual

I'm a man-eating machine.. [x2]

I deal in the market, every man, woman and child is a target
A closet full of faceless nameless pay more for less emptiness

I'll make you scrounge, in my executive lounge
You pay less tax, but I'll gain more back

My rules, you fools

We can play the money game
Greedgame, power game, stay insane
Lost in the cell, in this hell
Slave to the rhythm of the corporate prison

I'm a man-eating machine…
I can't get enough prey
Pray for me
Corporate cannibal…
Digital criminal…

I'll consume my consumers, with no sense of humour
I'll give you a uniform, chloroform
Sanatize, homogenize, vaporize… you

I'm the spark, make the world explode
I'm a man-eating machine, I'll make the world explode
Corporate cannibal…

  7. StefWangPARIS

    Masterpiece here ! Both lyric and musicwise

  8. William Vinyard

    Yep manufactured microchips in plates of bone fractures. They like to hide. Technology inside. To kill all we need. Due to greed.

  9. weird monster

    I think this song speakso about alien cannibals,we are rhem food we are on their plate.on the video she is on alien ends in a scary way with her simulating a verse of someone eating in a creepy way.or am I wrong

  18. astrophonix

    Probably the most underrated song ever, it deals with corporate greed, is effectively a protest song, and is brilliantly written, arranged, sung and produced.

  19. Snake 27

    nigga you kno whassup or dontchu

  20. tigerbambi

    Satanical bullshit! I used to like her when I didn't know what the music industry was all about. She really serves all satanic aspects. Look like an androgynous. The image of her it is disturbing but at the same time attractive to people who have depth.

  21. Sandra

  41. Tracy Allen

    This video is scary on so many levels...
    "I deal in the market, every man, woman and child is a target
    A closet full of faceless nameless pay more for less emptiness
    I'll make you scrounge, in my executive lounge
    You pay less tax, but I'll gain more back
    My rules, you fools..."
    I love Grace Jones ♥

  47. c x

    What a dark FKA twigs video would look like


    I really like this

  50. Eddie Omega

    happy birthday goddess

  51. Ulf Utstrand

    from Demolition Man to Corporate Cannibal...its a very logical line in this....the creators of Lady Grace Jones, know what we are after....


    Pleased to meet you. Pleased to have you on my plate. Your meat is sweet to me. Your destiny. Your fate. You won't hear me laughing as I terminate your day. You can't trace my footsteps as I walk the other way. Animal. Man eating machine.

    Snake 27

    keep being a man for the moment , but dont man up; dont eat machines, dont machine eats, and eat your greens and feel like you are not like you are thinking and if you know what then you know how

  62. Ann-Marie Williams

    So profound and true. timely in light of politics, true reason for religious wars, yearly new diseases. Yes Ms Jones, you speak truth.


    "true reason for religious wars" most underrated statement in all of human history.

    Tracy Allen

    That's too funny but, I understand! Lol!

    Morgan Olfursson

    do you even understand that song ?

    El Rafa

    jskillz1999 she made Arnold Sweartznigga as Conan cry cus she beat himn down good with her movie prop walking stick...

  70. OldSoul

    Love Grace Jones She's My Shero

  71. yuseless

    The women is bad-- her music and her Art! She needs more recognition for her talents!!

  72. skunkio7

    slave to grace

  73. MrGraphis

    This is just the best music video I've ever seen. Just fuckin' awesome!!!

  74. Orlando Aguasvivas

    This song is about the evil music industry, how it uses and sacrifies people......GRACE JONES running to her own beat.......

    Morgan Olfursson

    not at all .

    Jacob Melvin

    “Grandmaster of fear....satanical, mechanical, masonical... no not at all about the elite...(sarcasm) Stay woke OP. Person who replied ‘not at all’ your eyes.

    Tame Impaler

    Jacob Melvin "Masonical" is pretty much a slip of tongue...

  75. Orlando Aguasvivas

    GRACE JONES opened the door of freakness-avant garde-ahead of the time....without GRACE JONES....lady caca & Bjork would have been product of our imagination........GRACE JONES IS THE FUTURE

    Julien Castle

    Lady caca? How old are you dude lol?

    Samus Kerrigan

    @Julien Castle we call her like that in all Spanish speaking countries, dude, it has nothing to do with "age", caca is a common word used by people of any age to say *mierda* in a less agressive manner and it suits that "lady" shit perfectly. Grace Jones is the best

  76. MrHumanracin

    One of a kind! I hear there will be a new album June 2013?

  77. Coll

    I think that is part of the object of this song.. its satrical.. corporations ain't got no soul...

  78. Evah Destruction

    Do you even know who Grace Jones is? ....I can't- x_x wowwwww

    Tj Ebes

    eat you pens up balas mmmm so sexie

  79. Melissa Garcia

    And I totally agree....this is ART! Her, the song and the vid! And I say the same abt everything else she's ever done or will do.

  80. Melissa Garcia

    Oops! "she IS". Not "she it's".

  81. Melissa Garcia

    LMAO! This is just friggin awesome! SHE it's friggin awesome! OMG! She really does leave me speechless!

  82. Ti Lamar

    : Pay attention!!

  83. Jlannn

    Just because that's what you would be doing in your 60's doesn't mean that's what she should be doing. To each there own. This was more art/poetry to me then music... She isn't trying to be edgy and cool she's trying to portray a message you obviously didn't receive

  84. Jack Jackson

    For The Queen Just Radioactive>>>>>>>>>>>>>

  85. Alex Fate

    I like... :-)

  86. Jennifer Tang

    @sidvidkid music always had soul. unlike you.

  87. rachelspeedqueen

    @sidvidkid she's not trying to be "edgey and kool", she's being Grace Jones, just as she always has.

  88. TheBetterGamer

    Remember when people like you shouldn't comment at all?
    Oh wait, that's NOW

  89. Leonard Tyus

    Our system of things...................

  90. Miranda Uhing

    gaga brought me here to!! and i can see how she likes this....

  91. Duy Truong

    Gaga says that this is one of her most favorite music videos of all time. I can see why

    Julien Castle

    She has great tastes. :)

    J Diamond

    She ought to since she jacked most of her style from Grace. Grace has pointed that out in a couple of her modern interviews.

    Morgan Olfursson

    nobody gives a fuck about that bullshit gaga . don't even bring her name in the same universe as Grace Jones .


    yeah, and she declined an offer to work with her. she said she doesn't work with cheap copies of herself. lol. GJ in best fashion as usual. never disappoints.

  92. Jim B

    I'll make you scrounge in my executive lounge...heheheheheehhe

    It easy to imagine the emperor from Star wars singing this. Can you hear it?

  93. Mondo Price

    I guess you're NOT supposed to watch this unhigh.

  94. Robert Tuttle

    one person's a slave to the rhythm of the corporate prison

  95. Van Winkle


    Vote it up.

  96. bleen2511

    Grace Jones is a genius

    Isiah Cline
