We’re born in a graveyard
Where we feed on the dead
Our skin as pale as a death
We’re breed as ghosts

We celebrate the death of our fellows
It’s where we get innate free lunch
Hunger has depleted our ethics
Our egotism propels our hearts

We’re humans without customs
We dance on the graves
To shed our glee
As we flee to hell

When we’re starving
To acquire curse
By stirring the blood
We carry the ghostly cross
In our hands to our hearts

When a child dies
We vow and form a dyke
When a man dies
We converge and fill our bellies;
with wrathful manna
To undo our hearts away
Since his death is a function of our sin

Which niche are we inheriting?
In the days of revelation
Human eats human
A real sign of a devil victory
Is here!
