Soulfly - Chains Lyrics

Master of creation
This manipulation
Means manifestation now...
Fatal termination
Divine intervention
End the sufferation now...
Build up tension
Killing operation now...
Karma to burn
Becoming undone
Injustice is done now...

Kill... Survive... Survive to kill
Breath and breath - The air smells diseased
Trenches and trenches - The middle passage ending
Bleed in... Bleed out... No one will get out

Five to one - One to five - No one gets out alive
Master of creation - No more chains - Oppression
Slave state - Slave hate - Feel this day of hate
Five to one - One to five - No one gets out alive

Break the chains and break away
Break the hate and run away
Break the chains and face the day
Make a way, a new dawn fades
Stolen away, a new dawn fades
Stolen away, empty decay
They fade away in the slave trade
Lord of hate, lord of fate
I resist - Desecrate

Military dominance
Communication ends
Ordinary intolerance
Chaos and insolence
Ominous apparition
Evil manifestation
Malicious operation
Corruption and tension

Slavery is misery
Inflicting heresy
Wounds are open endlessly
Hatred, animosity
Torture masks and bleeding backs
Whipping cracks and faceless deaths
We'll rise and we'll defy it
And send their masters to the fire...

Destroy the chains - These are the chains of hate
Destroy the chains - We cannot tolerate
Destroy the chains - Where we were created
Destroy the chains - The evil of man-made
Destroy the chains...

The chains...

    I got to see them play most of this song in 2012, New Hampshire right on the beach. Then they went into Pantera Walk, hell yes place went nuts

  7. Collective Madness

    Uttered by Marduk:

    I will produce a lowly Primitive;
    "Man" shall be his name.
    I will create a Primitive Worker;
    He will be charged with the service of the gods,
    that they might have their ease.

    The very terms by which the Sumerians and Akkadians called "Man" bespoke his status and purpose: He was a lulu ("primitive"), a lulu amelu ("primitive worker"), an awihim ("laborer").
    That Man was created to be a servant of the gods did not strike the ancient peoples as a peculiar idea at all. In biblical times, the deity was "Lord", "Sovereign", "King", "Ruler" or "Master." The term that is commonly translated as "worship" was in fact avod ("work"). Ancient and biblical Man did not "worship" his god; he worked for him.
