Postmortem Lyrics

Funeral held for the depression of man
Holds the key to his own death
Entering a tomb of a corpse yet conceived
Tighten the tourniquet around your neck

Sifting away the debris of hated life
Cold touch of death begins to chill your...

    This song is about reflection at the time of death and a descent into hell. The person is trying to obtain life after death, by some kind of ritual, and they are punished for that and sent into the abyss.

    This song is about the thought process of a person who has decided to commit suicide.

    Close. It's about a guy... or girl. I'm not particular... who is looking back at his or her suicide. They wrote the song like star wars. The end is presented and then they show the beginning. "Do you WANT to die" is at the end. but in the beginning the person is dead. sooo... ya

    This is an easy one. It's about a person who wants to die. The lyrics "Do you want to die?" and "I'm after death" give it away. Another great Slayer song off of Reign in Blood!
