inhaling toxins with each breath. a caustic buildup in your chest. the chemicals begin to change after they infect your brain. burns your nose and your tongue sulfuric acid in your lungs. the poison is too fresh and pure, theres no treatment there is no cure.
they control your life, they control all your thoughts and who you are. sacrificed yourself for friends. filled with insecurities and self-abhorrence. you wish for your own death, but why wont you die. waste of space, a burden to the world. leeching off all of us. your sickness can't be cured. all the ones you called friends, are the ones who want you dead. terminate yourself.
science advances to benefit man. opportunists abuse it to take what they can. transformed to a nation of dependence and sloth. a mindless flock incapable of thought. reliant on hand outs, unable to provide for themselves. lethargy. indolence. a heard of sheep, waiting to be led. used to being bottle-fed. fuck the internet, fuck tv, or anything that uses electricity.
Manipulator 01:49
the ignorant believed your lies, you used them up to win your prize. they got shafted, you got rich, falling for the bait and switch. don't care who you fuck over, climbing up the ladder. secret agents, fbi is protecting your web of lies. you can only push a man so far, then he'll see you for what you are. once our countries leader, politicians are all scum. fucked them over to earn their votes, now they want to cut your throat. the public won't be fooled again, you can't talk your way out this mess. to pay the piece for what you've done, the blood of you and your first son. two presidents sentenced to death, a dark conspiracy put to rest.
Zone Killer 00:20
stalk the streets after a show for the perfect victim. a redneck in a carcass shirt, i steal it then i kill him. you'll be next,
my secret lab remains unseen. where i cook up some tryptamines. one day i left in unattended. return to find it had exploded. one ton of rare drugs, ten thousand times a normal dose. the chemicals i kept inside have released in the environment. tainting the water supply. a single drop will get you high. mass hysteria affects the area the whole town trips out. decontamination is death.
if you want results you've got to act. you can't change the world if you sit on your ass. i'll keep shooting till you shoot me. bringing justice back to the streets by murdering all the police. twelve shots fired fourteen cops dead. shoot me, kill me.
Dead Inside 01:01
go to church, accepting god. absorbing their religious fraud. shunning those who disagree, what will it take for you to see. collection plates always full, with hard earned cash of pawns and tools. exposing them for who they are, the truth is even more bizarre. men of god molesting kids embracing what their god forbids. turned to christ, because you're weak. thinking you'd find inner-peace. emptiness when you confide, leaves you feeling dead inside. disgusted by your former priest, you rat him out to the police. he cries in court and says a prayer before his sentence to the chair. religion you once held so high, is not but a giant lie.
working for nothing, your new life awaits. if you can pay, you'll get in. sold into slavery, you were promised a better life. your family waits at home, you struggle by yourself. trapped in a foreign world, where do you get help? cant trust the government, they just want to kick you out. living in fear that one day they'll find you. freedom enslaved.
Hydraphobia 01:36
Mind Ripper 01:21
people steal money and people steal weed but there's spineless breed of little shit that only steals ideas. just a fucking leech, you always were. make you bite the fucking curb if you bite off me again. feel the street pressed against your skin. end your life before you can think who grabbed me and tied me up and killed me because i ripped them off.
armored virus,defeating detection. no ones safe, there is no protection. how can you defend against what you can't see. infecting all things in contact with me. unknown origin, no known cure. infecting what was once secure. technology so advanced it traveled through time. to infect all computers and kill all mankind.
you see something on cnn or the internet. you think you're in tune with the world but you don't know jack shit. your grasp on reality is abstract, believe all you hear as fact. falling for their hype machine, worshipping your tv screen. everybody's doing it but i don't fucking buy it. you and all your myspace friends should get flushed down the toilet.
Paranoia 01:18
you know where to find me, are you too scared? i've got guns and their aiming for you. i came to fight, but you don't got no balls. i know what you did and i want blood. as long as you're out there, my minds consumed with violent thoughts. i have been preparing, knowing this day will come. now i keep a knife with me and a loaded gun. fuck you up, but i'll make sure you survive. i want your bitch-ass friends to see what i have done. i knew that you were coming, but i got you first. you talked all that shit, don't act like you don't know. was it all worth it, did you get what you want? what else will it take to get you to fuck off.
i never thought i'd kill myself, i'm doing it so the rest can survive. mass murder through suicide. master of my own fate. martyrdom derived from hate. i died so you can live. with a bomb tied to my chest, i approach the president. chaos, as bombs explode burning flesh and skin. now your country's leader's dead, and the war is ours to win.
ten-acre drug field secret base inside. by the time the cops come i'll be safe inside. protection maze, set ablaze. they try to burn it down, i don't give a fuck. after they inhale the fumes they'll be sitting ducks. they must have called for backup, i hear the chopper roar. i'll shoot it down and then skip town escaping towards the shore. searching in my fortress, but i'm safely on a boat. the only thing i left behind's a bomb set to explode.
Lobotomized 01:18
i knew that something was wrong, but i'm unable to place it. subdued me, bound me up with rope and then stabbed my brain with an ice pick. i would never be the same with pieces cut off of my brain. try to get help from the cops, but they used drugs to cloud my thoughts. they knew i could identify them, locked me in insane asylums. futile psychosurgery, a failed attempts to silence me. you should have killed me dead.
life isn't a messageboard, why don't you go outside. you are not shit without an avatar to hide behind. always quick to speak you're mind but you got no one to talk to. except your dumb-fuck online friends who never even met you. sit behind computer screens. on the internet you own the scene.
lost all you fought for and now you are left here for dead. all life ends. worldwide demise under blood red skies. countries destroyed, no one wins this war. human extinction from technology adapted for war. all life ends. we're all dead.


INSECT WARFARE - World Extermination LP (LUNGS-178)

What more can be said about "World Extermination" that hasn't already been said? In our opinion it is one of the top five grindcore albums of all time. It's distinct, catchy, brutal, unpredictable, relentless, mechanically tight, razor sharp and that artwork is iconic as hell. A perfect album in every way.

This is an official reissue, lovingly recreated with the best available materials to be as close to the original release specifications as possible. This version improves on the original in that it comes with more legible insert art, a heavier jacket and a much, much bigger poster. Everything is bigger in Texas, right?

1000 copies of black 150gr vinyl housed in a 24pt jacket with lyric insert, poster and download card included. Recorded at Red Room Studios in Houston TX. Re-Mastered by John Golden. Art by Daniel Shaw and Tom Triplett.
