Quote for Discussion: Hail Satan!

the best ever death metal band out of denton

were a couple of guys, who’d been friends since grade school.

one was named cyrus, and the other was jeff.

and they practiced twice a week in jeff’s bedroom.

the best ever death metal band out of denton

never settled on a name.

but the top three contenders, after weeks of debate,

were satan’s fingers, and the killers, and the hospital bombers.

jeff and cyrus believed in their hearts they were headed

for stage lights and leer jets, and fortune and fame.

so in script that made prominent use of a pentagram,

they stenciled their drumheads and guitars with their names.

this was how cyrus got sent to the school

where they told him he’d never be famous.

and this was why jeff,

in the letters he’d write to his friend,

helped develop a plan to get even.

when you punish a person for dreaming his dream,

don’t expect him to thank or forgive you.

the best ever death metal band out of denton

will in time both outpace and outlive you.

hail satan!

hail satan tonight!

hail satan!

hail hail!

  1. This is the best deth metal lyrics evah!

    Sing along with Mitch

    You people out there give us something more than just record sales

    You give us something to hate

    And we hate you, you brainless mutants

    Hate (16x)

    You hunched and blinded mutants

    living in chat rooms

    You masturbate on the sheets your mothers clean for you

    You have lined my pockets overflowed with gold

    You’re living with your parents and you’re 35 years old

    You’re a bunch of banks that I’d like to rob

    You’re my online cash transaction you’re my future stocks

    Transfer you like money to a Swiss account

    Spend you on an impulse and zero you all out

    Hate (16x)

    I would like to get some sleep but you keep buying all our things

    My overhead is way too deep for us to not make all these things

    It’s way too cynical, you see? Hating what’s supporting me

    I am not you, I thank the gods and if I were, I’d die like dogs

    Die (30x)

    DIE!
