Slayer - Born Of Fire Lyrics




[King/Hanneman]

Join in my quest to leave life overturned
Spanning the world wave of doom
Spewing out death with the evil I've churned
Awaken the dead from their tombs
Love turns to lust the sensations I've felt
Exploring the pleasures of sin
Making the best of the cards I've been dealth
Adjusting the odds so I win

Unleash all my burning wrath
Potential killing machine
Take down all who block my path
Enjoying all that's obscene... born of fire

Prince of all darkness initiation
Ritually baptized in flames
Next to the throne my abomination
Spreads horror throughout the domain
Master the art that controls the impure
Inherit the infamous keys
Thousands of centuries I will endure
Tyrant of all the prophecies

Some have called me Satan's son
A name I cannot deny
Wielding fury that's second to none
Far to vile to confine... born of fire

All things dead must rise again
When twilight's blanket falls
Splattered red you'll find my den
Blood dripping from the walls

Dreams born of desire
Shaped and forged within the fire
Twisted, warped, deranged I see
The world's corrupt insanity

Dreams possess nightmarish figures
Burning can't escape the embers
Lost are those who trust the Liar
Satan's son I'm born of fire

    Doing a poo poo on the kamode rasp as I push out my shit
    release from my anus this massive brown toad
    Accompanied by pints of piss
    Unleash from my rectum this humongous excretion brown stench of death manure
    Bursting the pipes and smashing the bowl blocking the entire sewer

    Some have called me blackanus
    A name that cannot be denied
    Burning fury from my bum
    Bursting forth with ruptured piles

    Blackened annnuuusss

    The Holy Bible is better

    Black Hat

    @WarthDader74 No.

    Robert Beam

    Cleanse the soul

  20. leandro_FC_

    The intro sounds like 5 magics by mrgadeth

  21. Brandon B

    People unliked this cause they really thought it meant down means hell...so I could see their evil point of view.

  22. MC KFC

    It's a song about Jesus.

    I have "Born of Fire" tattooed across my knuckles.

    Catalist21

    I'd like to see that

    Heisenbooger

    where would the "of" be? Theres only room for Born and Fire. unless you have two extra knuckles

    Hexxus 21

    @Heisenbooger 8 fingers and 2 thumbs

  25. glencoe428

    If i could pick a time to see Slayer it would have been on this album

    Harry Telfer

    Jeremiah Slayton I saw em in Winnipeg, bloody amazing show as you've said

    2006jakebob

    just saw them (2019) and they were amazing

  26. Metal Former

    If this does not pump you up to make you criminally insane, NOTHING WILL!

  27. Mark Lawless

    what are the lyrics about?

  28. Jose Torres

    This song is cool but it’s also literally Altar of Sacrifice off reign in blood.

  29. Steve odonoghue

    my fave slayer tune

    Michael Murphy

    Steve odonoghue every song on this album is my favorite

  30. Frédéric Puglisi

    Vagrant 069

    Frédéric Puglisi Jeff and Kerry

    Brian Mosser

    Def jeff he wrote all the good riffs

    Brian Mosser

    The good riffs are jeff

  31. Chillionx

    playing Doom while listening to Slayer is the best

    Tommo Grass

    Hella dope

    ROSS CRON

    As well as playing Doom whilst listening to 90s Pantera.... I've found the best band/album for old school Doom is Obituary - Cause of death

    Peter Normand

    Doom+SLAYER= YYEEEESSSSS

    Steve odonoghue

    @jdad6 What is this physical activity of which you speak? Sounds like the work of the devil if you ask me,

  32. Blake L

    PORN OF FIRE!

  33. Sargoth996

    I am very proud that I have seen this song performed live.

    jdad6

    Sargoth996 AWESOME!! ! Seeing a Slayer show is a badge of courage to be proud of!!
    I've heard this song in the mosh pit!!

    TheObsessivePainter !

    Sargoth996 nice! It was an honor to see them perform on Toms bday on the final tour. Amazing feeling!

    KaRaTeLoRd11

    They played it a few days ago in Phoenix and I was so happy to see them play it

  34. Lexi Sterling

    Best to music to drive around at night to. I saw them in March and came out of the pit with two black eyes.

    pajamasflannel

    Lexi Sterling < Try Yes' "Awaken" after this - works for me every time!

    Lexi Sterling

    pajamasflannel OK I will

    jdad6

    Sux you got black eyes. You have more balls..... uuuhhhh I mean GUTS than a lot of guys do! I'm tall enough that I get hit in the nose by everybody's shoulder the whole time I'm in the pit.

    Philip Messina

    Yeah sure😑

  35. Alex Ferus

    excellent Metal music \m/!!

  36. BitmyLip

    i've seen them in concert 3 times, and i was in the mosh pit twice and survived <3

    Triple _ ST

    BitmyLip was it fun?

    Nikolai Kolev

    of course will be he was on SLAYER concert

    Brian Mosser

    Seen them twice and was in the pit both times it's indescribable

    Mario Moran

  40. koldslaw

    Porn to be alive

  41. Peste Noire is nightcore for nazis change my mind

    porno fireeee

  42. Alex Zapata

    This song is so underrated, all people talk about when Slayer is mentioned is Raining Blood, Angel of Death, or South of Heaven. Obviously they are good songs but there are also way more songs that are also good

    Mark Lawless

    in my opinion "Evil has no boundaries" is a masterpiece and underrated song

    Simply MGTOW

    And some brutal ass lyrics."Some have called me Satan's son, a name I cannot deny!"

    derekobs

    Their best songs are from hell awaits and show no mercy and this song is sucky ass filler

    U4 EA

    Yep it's underrated but the reason - or one of the reasons - is that it is 1 track on an album of such quality (and variety). It is almost filler material compared to the other tracks on the album but that is just because SITA is such a great record. Spirit in Black is another underrated track. Similar to Born of Fire with the tempo shifts and evil as fuck lyrics. While Hanneman and Lombardo were the musical engine, King was an amazing lyricist.

    David Mendenhall

    Great song! Temptation is another secret gem from that album!!!

  43. T. Sei

    Funny you say that, my brother just got baptized yesterday and started to blast Seasons In The Abyss later on in the day. He doesn't idolize Slayer, but he still recognizes he likes to listen to it and has for years. True Christians aren't tight-assed, they're just less morally ambiguous then the rest of us, and know as well stick to their values. I'll just go back to enjoying the song....

    metallicatlaura

    I'm a Christian..BORN & RAISED, ALWAYS WILL BE..I ALSO LOVE OLD -SCHOOL SLAYER..been listening since 1986 and will be until the end of time! It depends on the PERSON..most ppl don't realize that! Glad that you do.. thanks

  44. MusicJamin330

    @earthninja777 Yeah, if you're a Tight-Assed Christian.

  45. earthninja777

    @MusicJamin330 LOL holy shit
    It must be akward to be listening to slayer if ur Christian

  46. MusicJamin330

    It's bad when an Ad for a Christian Dating site pops up during a Slayer video haha
