Whitechapel - The Somatic Defilement Lyrics




Captivating with sadistic intentions to exalt the carrion
Holding onto faith like it would help me anyway
Up on my feet. Vehemence takes over as I pave the way to anatomical feasts
Severing the ties I once endured to understand why it is that I crave the dead
Going by my knowledge of popular culture
I find a sense in malpracticing the common ways
Wallowing in claret. I long for such salvation
For when I'm through. I shall wear your pride upon my lips
Songs of the dead will eternally be chanted
Before sepulture. I must purloin the genitalia.
I must find pleasure when you're gone
An injection of sodium thiopental applied.
Your eyes are getting heavy now. I smell your fear
Delusions and paranoia are setting in
Control in my hands. I now shall purge.
With the saw I maim. By the saw I live
Inhaling fumes of the putrid festered funk
As I drain the throbbing cysts from the gangrenous vagina
The mordant reek is overtaking every inhalation
The nausea is overwhelming. I stop to heave
Brought forth are my confessions to the dead
As the lies coincide with vitriolic clues
We all will spread disease
We're all deceased
Carved in your face. The sacrilegious rites
These words bring truth to what was foretold
Corpses and bile will reconcile
The rumors of this forensic plague
By these words I am one with the dead
And with this I've claimed the one which I'm wed
Until death do us part. We'll rot hand in hand.

  53. loren parks

    Another love song...

  54. Ethan Staaf

    Based on all the comments saying the end was beautiful, i was expecting an extremely heavy outro

  55. LordMeier

    0:22 Shrek does the ROAR

  56. DraculaXHunter101

    I repeat 0:23 way too much honestly.

  57. Nicole -

    Ookay let's just say i am shook

  58. tyron smith

    best deathcore song ever made........sin duda gringo locust :D

  59. AwayAtKeyboard

    2:12 Is it just me, or are the drums, guitar, and bass not completely in time with each other here?

    biggerdilly

    AwayAtKeyboard i think you're right

  60. AwayAtKeyboard

    3:49 the goosebumps i got from listening to the song just got goosebumps

  61. Kenny Lambchop

    is it just me or does the ending sound similar to winds of plague one body too many ending?

  62. Dashtio

    Best part 3:20

  63. Tracy Gwin

    Fuck the reissue

  64. Gogo

    cmon guys this is death metal not deathcore....

    imjohn

    Who gives a fuck?

  65. andola jackson

    this song is my fave song by them lyrics riffs breakdown 2step the whole 9

  66. Joel valdez

    does any one remember when death core was in its prime? 2007-2010

  67. Dylan Rutherford

    92 dead whores dislikes this... 😂

    19lazyboy91

    either they are zombies or they are some ghost haunting us with dislikes lol

    imjohn

    But the dude from Whitechapel only killed 12...

    *_ILLUMINATI CONFIRMED_*

  68. Kvasir's Blood

    their only good album

  69. IAmWhoTheGodsDetest

    Kevin Lane is such an underrated drummer. The drumming at 1:45 proves that. Dude has such a unique style to his writing. Definitely one of my favorite drummers.

  70. Ashton Wilkins

    the ending of the song is beautiful

  71. Drew

    These lyrics demonstrate the truly maligned mind, truly disturbing.

  72. deathcore isslamasf

    This is how Deathcore should be.

    Jordan Wright

    deathcore isslamasf agreed

    Leaf

    @Jordan Wright you two should listen Shadow Of Intent

    mark olivares

    deathcore isslamasf for real dude . The crap they are putting out now is complete shit and mainstream . I can’t even call it deathcore anymore

  73. Pres Uganda

    sounds like he's finishing off a slurpee

  74. Andrew Macnaughton

    Amaze balls

  75. Jacob Miller

    Am I the only person who thinks that this is more like "death metal with breakdowns" instead of "deathcore"? I know that is the definition of deathcore but I feel like this is more technical like death metal, than actual deathcore. Confusing, I know.

    deathcore isslamasf

    Jacob Miller try listening to brain drill if you think this is technical death metal

    Ninten The Metalhead

    deathcore isslamasf Or any of Revocation or Suffocation

  76. Courtney Yates

    Rock on!

  77. William Meakins

    Fuuuck, this takes me back.

    Dat outro doe.

  78. Princess Olmeca

    Not a fan of deathcore, but as far as good bands in this style, Whitechapel definitely excel, as well as Carnifex and All Shall Perish.

    Marksman 5147

    Well you kinda just named 3 of the most famous DxC bands as being good so, seems you enjoy alotta the genre

    Princess Olmeca

    Well, that is only three. I can name a lot more bands - Winds of Plague; Doom-era Job for a Cowboy; Thy Art is Murder; Annotations of an Autopsy; Despised Icon; Abaddon; Eat a Helicopter; Suicide Silence; Infant Annihilator; Impending Doom.

    Bear in mind, I don't listen to any of those bands. I only know of them. I tried a few of them in the past and I didn't enjoy them all that much.

    Ninten The Metalhead

    Job for a Cowboy is a death metal band nowadays

    Princess Olmeca

    Yup, and Sun Eater was amazing.

    David Magidson

    of all those you mentioned, you'd probably enjoy despised icon and thy art is murder the most

  79. Jan Michael Portugaleza

    Whitechapel or Chelsea Grin? Which is better?

    Robin Theunisz

    both are great

    Hitachi Slim

    Chelsea Grin kind of wend downhill with their songs(in my opinion).

    hardedar

    Chelsea grins self titled lp was great but whitechapel is far superior in the long run, Chelsea's newer stuff is shit

    Ethan Navarro

    Jan Michael Portugaleza Whitechapel has better and more meaningful lyrics but I think Chelsea Grin has more creativity imo

    Brown Penguin

    Why not both? Listen to Hail the Fallen King by Chelsea Grin and Phil Bozeman

  80. Loni Yarborough

    The man responsible for growling being my ultimate turn on...

  81. Rigo Cerda

    Phil you are fucking brutal

  82. Riley James

    This is how serial killers sext..

    Jamel Williams

    Riley James lmfao brooo 😂💀

    Chill Bill

    EXPOSED

    gothfreak_ official

    😂🖕😂😂

    Alex M

    This is how serial killers are created.

    Organised Idiots

    This is how I sext
    COINCIDENCE?

  83. Lilith Faustus

    I'm oddly reminded of Grell Sutcliffe

    Vaun Herzelied

    Makes sense. But Grell doesn't like vagina, rotting or fresh.

  84. John Wayne Gacy

    Anyone know how to play this on guitar?

  85. The Chaotic Artist

    1:30 though....

  86. Kepler Awsumb

    The ending of this song is so beautiful

    inconspicuous wlf

    LAZER'S XZTC456 OH,you again

    Metalfan23

    That symphonic death metal ending lml

  87. elninjalaranja

    The beginning sounds like Recreant by Chelsea Grin

    idelightful

    lil bit

    Mathew Monitz

    Other way around dude.

  88. allseeingowl 1220

    this album slams hard

  89. Joshinator60

    The beginning of the song sounds awesome, but I can't stand the lyrics. LOL call me a puss, but its just so nasty haha.

    Thane Krios

    @Carson Wade Yeah. and Cannibal Corpse still holds up. TBDM has some crazy lyrics in a few songs.

    Keyboard Warrior

    This album is not based on Jack. It's in the spirit of his kind of work sure, but a lot of the things mentioned simply weren't of the time of jack the ripper. Chainsaws, for example.

    Keyboard Warrior

    Also, if this lyricism is too detailed, check out necrophagist. They have a different kind of spin on it. No so much in the mud of it. It's a bit more in the mental side of things than the actions. Plus it's fucking necrophagist. Sick ass solos, and the music is 1000x more aggressive. "Stabwound" is the perfect song to be introduced to them through.

    Gaming With Ccole45

    Carson Wade soil the stillborn is brutal as hell. Terrifying lyrics and the song is so fast! When he says "as I mount the bassinet my cock erupts insanity" it's so fast like geez

    Matt Y.

    Pretty sure its inspired by both The Ripper and Jeffrey Dahmer and this being directly written thru Dahmer's eyes. Don't quote me on that tho, i'm not 100% positive.

  90. Ham Bone

    Pretty sure every deathcore band from 2005-208 did that riff in at least one song 3:36

    Nekros97

    Ham Bone It's from The Flesh And The Power It Holds by Death and I can't count how many bands copied that riff.

    Noriaki Kakyoin

    208 lol

  91. Rowbearplz

    I wish they would go back to this

    Jordan Wright

    robert gilbert same here

  92. Chinchi Saaya

    romeo and juliette

  93. Ryosuke Zeyo

    Listening this song with lyrics is such better expirence.. brutal shit

  94. RotFace

    that piano part is kinda gay

    AwayAtKeyboard

    Strings, and imo it’s the best part of the song

  95. Matthew Plosick

    the Lucifer rebellion is because caligastia was under oath of just to slightly tweek the genome of this so called evolutionary planet ,

  96. IAmWhoTheGodsDetest

    Kevin is such an underrated drummer. 1:45 is fucking insane.
