Arbeit Macht Fleisch

Carcass - Arbeit Macht Fleisch

"Arbeit macht frei" (German pronunciation: [ˈaɐ̯baɪt ˈmaxt ˈfʁaɪ]) is a German phrase meaning "work makes (you) free".[1] The slogan is known for having been placed over the entrances to a number of Nazi concentration camps during World War II, including most infamously Auschwitz I, where it was made by prisoners with metalwork skills and erected by order of the Nazis in June 1940.-

Arbeit Macht Fleisch in German and it means Work Brings Flesh/meat. Arbeit Macht Frei means Work Brings Freedom, which is written on a sign over the gates of Auschwitz.

Happy Labour Day / International Workers Day May 1st !

Carcass - Arbeit Macht Fleisch

Prognathous gears grind
So diligent and serrated they mesh
Toothed cogs churn
So trechant, against soft flesh
Worked to the bone
Up to the hilt, depredated
Raw materialism
To stoke the furnaces

Toiling, rotting
Life slowly slips away
Consumed, inhumed

In this mechanized corruption line
By mincing machinery industrialized, pulped and pulverized
Enslaved to the grind

Blood, sweat, toil, tears
Arbeit macht fleisch

Grave to the grind

Inimitable gears twist
To churn a living grave
Stainless cogs shredding
Scathing pistons bludgeon and flail
Stripping to the bone
Retund mandrels levigate
Just raw material
Your pound of flesh for the suzerain

Toiling, rotting
Life slowly dissipates
Consumed, inhumed

In a corruption line, mechanized
By mincing machinery, industrialized, crunched and brutalised
A grave to the blind

Blood, sweat, toil, tears
Arbeit macht fleisch

Note : is reupdated. The sad thing happened was Bubu and Comot was picked up from my house and was abandoned at Pasar Kajang last Monday 28 April 2014. The reason was very private, and I'm devastated truly by all events that happened this week.
