Burton Seabell is a Poet

IMG_2084.JPG“As a lyricist, I try to be poetic. All our lyrics are poems,” Fear Factory vocalist Burton Seabell recently told The Indian Express. And while there is, of course, an argument to be made that ALL song lyrics are poems, you can’t fault Seabell for his pride — for, surely, few lyricists are as poetic as he!

For example…

From “Martyr”:

I’ve got to get away
I’ve got to get away
I’ve got to get away
I’ve got to get away

From “Replica”:

I am rape
I am hate
I am rape
I am hate

From “Piss Christ”:

So we lie
So we lie
So we lie
So we lie
So we lie
So we lie
So we lie
So we lie

From “Recharger”:

All of this must end
All of this must end
All of this must end
All of this must end

Look for Seabell to join fellow master lyricist Max Cavalera on The Thought-Provoking Poetry Slam Tour 2014, coming soon to a town near you. Support will be provided by Otep and Frankie Palmeri.
