The Black Dahlia Murder Statutory Ape Lyrics

Last updated: 05/31/2011 11:00:00 AM

this is a reckoning,
a cliched cut of lying tongue
revenge never goes out of style

gorilla honing trigger finger that makes gorilla man
ingrained, there's hate within us all

spiraling I've lost my footing once again
I'm flailing in a tantrum of disgust!

when life holds nothing sacred,
when the loveless turn to loathe
we'll witness this final threatened pose

(oh)oh mother war,
sleep in your arms tonight
I'm burning, I'm burning for your love

(this)this juggernaut of bronze and alcohol
machines of vengeance now are born

of vengeance we are born
to our graves these grudges shall be sworn

behold the death of emotions never mourned
we'll die before we crawl

twisted ministers of death
praying for a bullet hail

gorilla suffocate, gorilla maim
an education in howling
ministers of death, will be praying
praying for this bullet hail

gorilla suffocate
gorilla maim
an education in complete misanthropy

[solo]

(oh)oh mother war,
sleep in your arms tonight
I'm burning, I'm burning for your love

(this)this juggernaut of bronze and alcohol
machines of vengeance now are born

(Oh) Oh, mother war
sleep in your arms tonight, I'm burning
I'm burning!

In vengeance we are born
to our fucking graves
our grudges sworn forever,
forever!

man... | Reviewer: ryan | 12/11/07

probably my favorite black dahlia murder song. as of right now, at least. it all goes together well. the drums go just right with the riff and solo, and the lyrics and vocals make the song.
one of my favorite metal songs.



Statutory Ape | Reviewer: Dak | 9/20/07

My favorite song on the album "Miasma". There new album is just as good, if not better, than both of their previous albums. Go pick up "Nocturnal" if you are a fan.
