Question Opinions on some lyrics please.

I write quite a lot of poetry/lyrics and end up discarding most of it. I'd like to know what you all feel about this one. Any comments/criticisms are will be appreciated.

Sadistic Creator

I am the artist, my tools
Disease and War.
Your face a canvas on which I'll paint
This portrait of pain, a mask of agony.
Wear this mask for me, I'm the last you'll see of life.

Sadistic creator; pain, disease and war.
Sadistic creator; hate, fear and emotional scars.

You are the subject, mine to contort.
This life I've given you, a double-edged sword.
I have manifested all that exists
But you've abused this gift, tell me why you deserve it.

Sadistic creator; pain, disease and war.
Sadistic creator; hate, fear, everlasting scars.

The joy of life you've shattered and raped,
Emptiness is all I'll leave in my wake.
Human-kind has made within itself a void,
Like a flawed piece of art it must be destroyed.

Sadistic creator; pain, disease and war.
Sadistic creator shall create no more...

I think it might sound a bit too clichéd in parts, like the final lines of the first verse. What do you think??
"Here's to us, and those like us, and all the rest are cunts."

I don't agree too much with the "GO CLICHE" modo.....but it's a good piece of art nonetheless. Good job....uh, new friend.
Through me you pass into the city of woe
Through me you pass into eternal pain
Through me among the people lost for ay
Justice the founder of my fabric moved
To rear me was the task of power divine
Supremest wisdom, and primeval love
Before me things create were none, save things
Eternal, and eternal I endure
All hope abandon, ye who enter here

Against the concert of the Immortals he cannot stand alone.

Yes. Thank you. It's good to see a change from the talentless "hack em up" lyrics. Only thing they do in there is make the words rhyme. It's pathetic. Your's are good. Those damn "i'll watch you fucking burn...that's right...FUCK" lyrics are the ones that are cliche man. Good work.

just like everyone says in most of the replys
I like it.
poetry is an art
who cares if it is clicheic (is that a word?) or not
if you like it, since you wrote it..., then who really cares
but i like it
and as most say in these
thank god for not kill kill kill die burn eat my fist ill rip your heart out shit
you can write good songs... that sounds like it could be a great song
get some kick ass music to it and damn - good shit
Torture to come
Bring the hatred which carries some
For when the prophecy hast been provoked
Your soul shall burn - it hast now choked.

Overall it's really good - the whole thing has a very "morbid angel" feel, or at least to me - I can imagine lyrics like that being sung on "Covenant". It's well written, but I'm not sure the first stanza is as good as the rest - it doesn't seem to fit so easily into a rhythm, although it'd probably work in an actual song.

I'm being picky, and I can be, so that's good, cuz this is ace.
Hallucinogen kicks arse. Indeedily, she does.

nice! times its blatent, other times its subliminal, not saying its bad...but make up your mind! because its like reading a book with the page numbers all over the place you need to keep back tracking which can stop the flow while reading, but with music...i can hear that alot along the lines of something like Morbid Angel - To The Victor The Spoils.
