Embodiment – Carcass

This effigy of flesh, corporeal christi, nailed
In submission to this false idol, seeking deliverance
>From this spiritual hierarchy, downward spiralling, a corrupt throne
Of repression and guilt

Our will be done
Thy kingdom burn

On my knees, before this tormented flesh, in irreverence
In communion with this parasitic host of virtuous divinity
This imperious creed bears testament to the failures of our morality
Righteous durance is our cross we bear in stations
In stations of the lost

Our will be done
Thy kingdom burn – thy kingdom burn
Our will be done

>From your knees arise
By your own hand, your god you scribe
The earth shall inherit the meek
Your god is dead

(Lead – Amott)

Bound down, in God we’re trussed, foul stature
Icons embodied in flesh, we nail
