considered dead lyrics – gorguts

back in the fourteenth century
when the world was plagued by horrid diseases
discovered lifeless bodies were buried

knowing very little about true symptoms of death
those who stiffen in the stage of morbidity
were then considered dead

autopsies were unknown at that time
unconsciousness could have been fatal to your life
catalepsy, from this plague a lot have died
ignorance sent to the grave people alive

there’s no way to save yourself from this calamity
life will be for you a simple memory

faint! now you’re paralysed
catalepsy soon will take your life
try not to close your eyes
cause death will be to life a deadly lie

when you’re entombed within your mind you wait and
pray if you could talk the only things that you would say
“i’m still alive… please!” “i’m still alive… don’t bury me!”

(lead: luc lemay)

what a sad way to end a mortal life
but it’s better off buried
than to be embalmed alive

song: rottenatomy

i’ve been lost in a jungle
for an hour and fifteen days
hopelessly searching for exits
in this lethal maze

footsteps i have taken
each one driving me insane
always turning in circles
in this hostile jungle

having dropped my last piece of food
the most vital thing i never wished to loose
i slipped and found myself in a dark place like h*ll
at the bottom of a pit where i had fell

surrounded by a rancid smell
of corpses that previously fell
among bones shredded flesh and crawling maggots
then i knew that i shall stay there to rot

gashes appearing everywhere
scars i’m wishing in despair
before maggots devoured my insides
i’ll commit myself to suicide

(lead: luc lemay)

above me i heard people talking
having lost my voice, i was unable to scream
they had a look and saw me lying in my knees
then went away thinking i was deceased

below me no one is talking
if you have your voice, just once you’re screaming
have a fast look before falling on your knees
no hope is left when you are deceased
