Sodom - Exhibition Bout Lyrics

Arena filled with screaming crowd
In ecstasy they cry
Paid money for a pleasant show
Want to see him die
The matador in shining dress
Intent to prove his courage
Drove by rejoicing mass
It boils his pulsing blood

Exhibition bouts under the star of law
Men make pleasure in hanging gore
Cruelty to animals crime that won't get punished
Creatures treated as rubbish

With direct stabs into living flesh
To agonise the bull
No way out the fronts are clear
Take offensive jab it though
On and on ride to the fall
In danger of his life
Wounded find no place to hide
Death will soon arrive

Exhibition bouts under the star of law
Men make pleasure in hanging gore
Cruelty to animals crime that won't get punished
Creatures treated as rubbish

Blood soaks and stains the parched ground
The slaughter to inaugurate
Duel between man and beast
Their eyes are filled with hate... hate... hate

He restrained fierce at the eleventh hour
Till death blows save his soul
No right to exist lamentation is law
His flesh served up a grub
Now finds piece in a better world
Where man and beast are one
Arena was filled with screaming crowd
He is dead and they are gone

Exhibition bouts under the star of law
Men make pleasure in hanging gore
Cruelty to animals crime that won't get punished
Creature treated as rubbish

    Justin Bieber's penis is the size of the dislike bar. Chuck Norris is somehow related to this. Rebecca Black sucks. Thumbs up if *insert obvious bullshit here*. My parents thought I was watching porn. 18 dislikes for.. *enter crap reason*. press 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 or 9. I hate ads and VEVO. You say *current pop artist*, I say *old school hardcore artist*. What happened to rock? Now you dont need to read the rest of the comments. Well go on, just copy and paste it on every other video.

  33. Regdot

    I was listening to this album in history class while we following a lesson of the Vietnam War.

  34. MrThrasha666

    Finally get my chance to see Sodom!! May 29th w/Autopsy \m/ \m/ Will most likely be the greatest death metal show ever!

  35. MrThrasha666

    @Rembrandt11111 Blackfire is genius!

  36. MrThrasha666

    Blackfire was an amazing guitarist for sodom!! I fuckin love Persecution Mania just as much as Agent Orange.

  37. Joey Mutts

    All of the solos on Agent Orange are just awesome.

  38. Rembrandt11111

    I've never heard a solo like this one, the lyrics are also awesome, people who like bullfighting make me sick, the matador is not an artist and not even brave, is just a coward. SODOM FUCKING RULES!!!!!!!!

  40. RetroVertigo

    listening to the Agent 'Orange' album while drinking 'Orange' Juice, that's just how Metal I am XD
