lyrics

Seven years in the slaughterhouse
Lucky I don't have a soul
But what's important is the here and now
I'm taking back my self control

Seeking eternal life
The soldier trades his rifle for a knife
When the carcass wakes
The sacrifice will once more be delayed

My epitaph is changing
Never gonna live my life as two
Future's ready for the taking
By the hook you forsook
I'm the future butcher

Butcher! Butcher!

Devil sleeping in my mind
And not a single tear was shed
Beaten down by daily grind
But now the mirror's turning red

Trouble written in the genes
Little soldier binds himself with rope
Method in the madness means
The slaughter must go on just like the show

My epitaph is changing
Never gonna live my life as two
Future's ready for the taking
By the hook you forsook
I'm the future butcher

Butcher! Butcher!
Butcher!!

Butcher's arcana
Just a broken superstar
Butcher's arcana
Never thought he'd come this far
Butcher's arcana
Just a ten year waking dream
Butcher's arcana
Now I know the butcher's me
