Diagnosis; Humanity
 
Survival is our instinct
Self-destruction is our nature
Separate the man from beast
Preservation is what we do the least

Pleasures in killing
Maiming and mating
No desires in living

Only creation in devastation
Steel and metal for decapitation
Using Apolloís gift from the Gods
To satisfy our inner demons

Watching the crimson flow
From others, from ourselves
Better to watch a mudslide
Than a mountain standing tall


Survival is our instinct
Self-destruction is our nature
Separate the man from beast
Preservation is what we do the least

Pleasures in killing
Maiming and mating
No desires in living

Smashing and slamming
Slashing and stabbing
Tools for the wrathful man
To tear up his innocent land

Tars and feathers for the unlawful
A rope and a rock to drown the unfaithful
A bombardment of stone for the disloyal
No thought that such torture was so unusual

Survival is our instinct
Self-destruction is our nature
Separate the man from beast
Preservation is what we do the least

Pleasures in killing
Maiming and mating
No desires in living

Using the means to create life
To engorge in orgasmic bliss
Giving into temptations of the flesh
Perversions merely a means to an end

Suffocation before release
Down Satanís Alley if we please
Molest mankindís best friend
Defile the peaceful dead

(George Carlin quote; ďA rat will do a lot of disgusting things; He will not fuck another dead rat)

Humanity is a sickness
Mankind has the virus

Survival is our instinct
Self-destruction is our nature
Separate the man from beast
Preservation is what we do the least

Pleasures in killing
Maiming and mating
No desires in living

I think I'd change the "steel and metal" since that sounds kind of redundant. Pick another medium for one or the other.
And I lol-d at the Carlin quote inserted there, but it's a perfect mini-break in the song. One thing about using that is you might be messing with a copyright using it so watch out for that.

This has a good meter to it. Very driving.

Whenever I put music to this song and when we do start recording it, I would definitely need someone's permission to use that quote. Dunno whose, though, since George is dead (RIP).

This is the second song I've incorporated a quote from George Carlin.
