​The Granulating Dark Satanic Mills

This song is by Carcass and appears on the album Surgical Steel (2013).

Original video
From the weeping womb to the tomb
Towering fuming smokestacks loomed
Aloft the emancipated industrial
Mercantile maroon

Your heirs will be deprived this fate
A penitentiary as consumer villeins
Never to enter through
The grim rusting factory gates

Six, zero, two, six
Nine, six, one

Torn apart in the soul destroying...

Six, zero, two, six
Nine, six, one

The granulating dark satanic mills...

Subsisting shackled drudgers and drones
Disassembly line of skin and bone
Collieries not beaches
Lie beneath the paving stones

When chattel black turned to white
Rigid binding chains were hidden from sight
The unborn will quench
The thirstful smouldering kiln's fires

Six, zero, two, six
Nine, six, one

Torn apart in the soul destroying...

Six, zero, two, six
Nine, six, one

Sweat and no redemption in the dark satanic mills

An existence, subservient, binded you'll see
"A working class hero is something to be"
An existence, subservient, blinded you'll seed
A working class hero is something to bleed
