Leprosy 06:20
Bodies deformed way beyond belief Cast out from their concerned society Flesh contorting day after day Freak of the dark world is what the people say Their lives decay before their eyes There is no hope of cure Among their own kind they live A life that's so obscure First an arm and then a leg Deterioration grows Rotting while they breathe - Death comes slow Leprosy will take control and bring you to your death No chance of a normal life to live just like the rest Leprosy will spread with time, your body soon to change Appearance becomes hideous a sight too much to take Tuberculoid the most severe Decay of the nerves comes fast Sense of feeling soon to be gone Life will never last No hope of recovery after the nerves are eaten away Damage is done you feel no more pain Bones decay deterioration grows Origin of this horrid disease nobody knows Their lives decay before their eyes There is no hope of cure Among their own kind they live A life that's so obscure First an arm and then a leg Deterioration grows Rotting while they breathe - Death comes slow Leprosy will take control and bring you to your death No chance of a normal life to live just like the rest Leprosy will spread with time, your body soon to changel Appearance becomes hideous a sight too much to take
2.
Born Dead 03:27
Brought to this world to wither away Naive about the ways of life is what they say Millions live millions die, more are yet to come Living skeletons - Where they come from Born dead into this world To starve and rot in agony Born dead into this world It's their choice, why can't you see Life of misery, soon a corpse you be As bones show through, nothing you can do Relief does not exist When you are born to die Disease spreads fast across their dying world Many cemeteries they will have to build As process goes on for many years to come A human waste land created when they are done Born dead into this world To starve and rot in agony Born dead into this world It's their choice, why can't you see
3.
Deep in your mind there is another side A morbid truth one cannot hide Unimaginable gore was your past time high To hear people scream, to watch them die Return back to the burial site Face your dreams upon this night Severed limbs not far away Spirit past you now obey Images of the forgotten past Your first life revealed at last Now you'll find to your surprise All the corpses you left behind A place you feel you've been to before Where life would turn right into gore You dig deep down through the years of decay The truth is revealed, you found your way Return back to the burial site Face your dreams upon this night Severed limbs not far away Spirit past you now obey Images of the forgotten past Your first life revealed at last Now you'll find to your surprise All the corpses you left behind
4.
Left To Die 04:37
Put your life into their hands Die for someone else Now you're in the real world Where pain and death are felt The first blood shed does not seem real Reality is what you feel Dropping to your knees you pray God won't make this go away You will not return alive - Left to die Suffering until the end - Left to die Time stands still as you pass away No more tomorrow this is your last day On this fucking earth Bodies fall onto the ground Blood flies through the air Shredded victims lie in pain Death is never fair Legs blown off, all hope is lost A human life is what it cost Others follow close behind A real adventure they will find You will not return alive - Left to die Suffering until the end - Left to die
5.
Memories is all that's left behind As I lay and wait to die Little do they know That I hear their choice of life End it now, it is the only way Too cruel, that is what they say Release me from this lonely world There is no hope - Why don't you Pull the plug Let me pass away Pull the plug Don't want to live this way Once I had full control of my life I now behold a machine decides my fate End it now it's all to late What has now been days, it seems like years To stay like this is what I fear Life ends so fast, so take your chance And make it last End it now, it is the only way Too cruel, that is what they say Release me from this lonely world There is no hope - Why don't you Pull the plug Let me pass away Pull the plug Don't want to live this way
6.
Open Casket 04:55
Approach the image filled with fear As the image grows so clear Future now takes full control The one whose past you now behold Touch - The flesh it is so cold Turn away - You now have been told Never to return, memories will last In the future, you'll think about the past Never to forget, what you have seen People come to pay respect Taking pictures of the dead That is what life comes to be Once they lived, now they're deceased Death is oh so strange The past no one can change What you can't predict Is how long you'll exist Open casket - Open casket Life will never be the same Death can never be explained It's their time to go beyond Empty feeling when they're gone Never to return, memories will last In the future, you'll think about the past Never to forget, what you have seen What can not be real you now believe
7.
Go against the ways and experience pain Leading a life which one might call insane Bathe in the blood of the one you killed Slaughter to survive, your needs are fulfilled Using horrid waste Some of them will taste Removing deadly disease With such primitive ease Cannibals practising the art of butchery Emotions don't exist, pain you can't resist Primitive ways Conducting ceremonies to meet the ancient ones While having an outer body experience Celebrate the kill of the day Then walk among the guts of the fallen prey Using horrid waste Some of them will taste Removing deadly disease With such primitive ease Cannibals practising the art of butchery Emotions don't exist, pain you can't resist
8.
Choke On It 05:55
Freedom is just a breath away Will you live to see the day As the heat intensifies You start to choke, your insides fry Seizure now sets in Torture will begin Twisted bodies lie Waiting now to die Choke on it - As your tongue goes down Choke on it - Death is all around Screaming fills your frenzied mind No way out no more time Example made from those to see Your freedom turned to misery World is all around Of what they have found Lesson to be learn You will not return Choke on it - As your tongue goes down Choke on it - Death is all around

about

The sixth installment in Relapse’s exhaustive reissue campaign of DEATH’S immensely influential catalog is ‘Leprosy’, the band’s titanic second album. Originally released in 1988 ‘Leprosy’ was a pioneering album, building upon the thrash sounds of Metallica and Slayer but adding a previously unheard level of raw extremity. These songs are the roots of an entire genre: death metal. While this was only the second record Death released, it immediately cemented them as heavy metal icons.

Meticulous care has been put into this reissue. The entire album, as well as the bonus material has been painstakingly remastered by Alan Douches (Mastodon, Nile, etc). Deluxe 2XCD contains 50 minutes of previously unheard and unreleased Leprosy demos and rehearsal material housed in an embossed o-card package with a 24 page booklet featuring unseen pictures of the band as well as brand new liner notes from Ian Christe (Sirius/XM) and Jeremy Wagner (Broken Hope). LP features the remastered core album on wax together with a download card for all of the music included on the 2XCD.
