The Hippocritic Oath Lyrics


First of all, I must compliment on some great music! Impaled is really skillfull :)

Now, to the question: Exactly what is said in The Hippocritic Oath? English isn't my native language, and the speech isn't exactly said very clear, so I have problems making it out. Also, is it one of the band members who say it, or where is it from?

Thanks :)

Because I'm a dumb ass, I don't have the text saved... so I had to go back and listen to it.

Those sick, the afflicted, the injured, the cripple, those wretches no longer able to fend for their own well being... it is these enfeebled masses who have put their trust in the halls of science, who have sewn their faith in the world of medicine. We surgeons have seen fit to devote our lives to these sad cases, these people whose time has come. We delay the inevitable, attempting to give mankind the strength to withstand death, to live but for a few days more. I say, no more! I say tally no longer on the frail and infirmed. I say, give no more peace to the withered and old. I say, the greatest sickness of all is named "man," and it needs to be excised from the Earth like a boil. I say, kill 'em all.

That segment is spoken by yours truly, and it's loosely based on a rant by the character Tyler Durden in Chuck Palahniuk's "Fight Club." The last line is an homage to Metallica's classic first album.

The other text is an exchange between Sean and I, based on nothing more than what might appear in a horror movie...

"Rotting carbuncles, fustulating piles of meat... we have to exterminate, exterminate them all!"
"Doctor, listen to yourself, you're mad!"
"No, you listen, for the first time I am sane."

The final bit is a lass and friend who goes by the nome de plume Chainsaw Mary screaming "Is there a doctor in the house?" She also appears as one of the nurses on the Dementia Rex split.
