Hatebreed - Under The Knife lyrics


01. Smash Your Enemies

Music & lyrics by Hatebreed
I hope I'm alive.
To witness your demise.
Make you feel my sorrow.
Encompass all my pain.
That I've felt for years.
Dreading each dying day.
Hanging by a thread.
On the edge of my sanity.

When I wake up the real nightmare begins.

Will I make through my time
In living hell?
Do I possess the strength to
Smash my fears into the ground?
I've tried to be strong.
I've tried to overcome but
I don't think I possess the
Strength to carry on.
I'm torn between, and there's
No right choice.
I've gotta fight back.
I won't be scarred for life.

02. Kill An Addict

Music & lyrics by Hatebreed
You've made excuses
For the fucked up things
You've done but everyone's
Heard them before, your
Lying and stealing to feed
Your addictions won't be
Tolerated anymore. I tried
To help you but you spit in
My face, so now you're on
Your own I see your life
Slipping away, you brought
It on yourself . . . GO! Those
I've hated are the ones I've
Held so close, and those who
Use betrayal will be the
Ones to suffer, the ones to suffer
The most.

03. Under The Knife

Music & lyrics by Hatebreed
I can't seem to fathom
How we live in this world of pain,
Under the knife
See our bodies grow frail,
Ravaged by disease my heart grows weak,
And there's nothing to cure
The pain or to heal my scars now.
I won't live my life under the knife

If my fate's been chosen
Then I will exist,
Or should I put the razor to my wrist,
I'm alone is this fight,
How will I prove I'm right?
I won't live
My life under the knife.

04. Filth

Music & lyrics by Hatebreed
I won't celebrate your genocide
And I won't consume your lies,
And you cannot deny how your
Selfish ways kill and ruin innocent lives,
People have been exploited,
People have been killed,
Humanity has been raped
And still I see no cure.
I won't consume your filth.
Filth is what you know,
Filth is what you consume,
Filth is all you know,
I'm gonna take you out.
I can justify your suffering,
Can you justify theirs?
You degrade and destroy
Life as we know it to profit
At any cost.
I won't consume!
I won't take part!
I cannot and I won't,
I won't consume your filth!

05. Not One Truth

Music & lyrics by Hatebreed
Living as we rot,
Showered with shadows of dreams devoured.
Our souls descend into endless seas of sin.
There's no turning back.
No repenting,
No remorse.
Hate stricken creation.
I realize in this world.

[Chorus x2]

There is not one truth cast into stone.
Only lies cast into flames.
It's time to burn.
Burn alive.
Burn at the stake.
Our eyes crystal clear,
Our bodies frozen with fear,
And there's nothing to save us now
From endless suffering and solitude.
We've lost the chance to save this dying world.
So we pay the price,
Of which no one can afford.
This is our last breath.
The first in a world of misery.
There is nothing left.
Only the lies in this world.

06. Severed

Music & lyrics by Hatebreed
Sorrow filled days of disease,
The faceless shadows arise.
The fear once among the lust,
Now reflects creations demise.
So to the idols wait for the impending doom,
Under a godless sky,
Yet we walk on further atop the broken glass.

For our feet will heal but our
Souls stay doused.
With humanity's blood,
Await the crucifixion,
No one is forgiven,
Everything precious lost.

Sanctified to God,
Ccarved into our souls,
Carved into our past,
Our lives severed
Our lives remain severed!

07. Puritain

Music & lyrics by Hatebreed
Bastard cries,
Feed the fire.
The burning desire to rob human life.
In this world full of fear of the unknown.
Twisting the perception of the weak.
Lying to progress.
Only achieving greed.
Seated behind the sun.
Myths bleed into one.
Searching for a saviour to lead us through this life.
Where our sanity is undone.
Killing against our will.
Killing for the bastard maker.
The fairy tale.
The non existent.
Salvation so bittersweet the taste brought fear to our tongues.
Preying on the weak.
Fatherless creation encased in the depths of humanity.
They continue to rape and call it purity.
I will not bow down because of out past.
I see now mankind was not meant to last.
