about

The Grand Opiate Los Angeles, California

The Grand Opiate was formed in 2013 under the name SlaveState.
Out of the ashes of SlaveState arose The Grand Opiate, featuring
members of Lightning Swords Of Death, Behold! The Monolith and WitchCasket.
The Grand Opiate plays grindcore, plain and simple.
Grindcore that makes you think and grind your teeth.

Track Name: Entitlement
ENTITLEMENT?

So you feel you’ve been dealt a losing hand?
You think this gives you the right
To leech off others?

So you think the government has singled you out
To live a substandard life?
Think again!

We work, you leech!
We work, you leech!
Off of us, not them!

Leech!
Track Name: Cash Cow
CASH COW

Lead them to the slaughter
Laughing all the way
Blood from son and daughter
Grease the wheels for pay

Cash Cow
Track Name: Hairshirt
HAIRSHIRT

False self-hatred
Pride turned to madness
Fear of reprisal
Mortify the flesh

Hairshirt!
Of lies and…
Hairshirt!
…deceit.

Mantle of deceit
Suffocating malady
Imprisoning the mind
Vicious fucking cycle

Running in circles
Total loss of control
Digging deeper and deeper
No sense of reality

Hairshirt!
Of lies and…
Hairshirt!
…deceit.
Track Name: Too Weak To Die
TOO WEAK TO DIE

Warped visions
Senseless violence
Blind hatred
Rabid fear

Brutal oppression
Inhuman condition
Nothing to live for
Too weak to die
Track Name: Digital Alienation
DIGITAL ALIENATION

Rabid seclusion
Withdrawal from humanity
Manic and estranged
Living through technology

Digital Alienation!
Digital Alienation!
Track Name: Dormant Chaocracy/The Leprous Hand Of God/Slavestate Of Mind
DORMANT CHAOCRACY

The Arrow points in all directions
It’s just a matter of Time
The cracks are growing exponentially
We cannot stop the Tide

Chaos will engulf us all
It’s just a matter of Time
The Fall has become inevitable
We cannot stop the Tide

Dormant Chaocracy
Dormant Chaocracy
Dormant Chaocracy

THE LEPROUS HAND OF GOD

The propagation of an idea
Its sole purpose, submission
Of all

A bondage imposed
With promise of Freedom
Upon Death

Servitude of the many
For the benefit of the few
A perfect scheme, right?

Lies wrapped in Truth
Wrapped in Lies

The weak, the meek
The hapless, the poor
All prey to
The Grand Opiate;

Better to kneel
Than to think!

SLAVE STATE OF MIND

Slave State of Mind
Slave State of Mind
Slave State of Mind
Slave State of Mind!
Track Name: Microwave Death
Microwave Death!!!
Track Name: Idiot Archetype
IDIOT ARCHETYPE

Feeding the masses
With nothing worthwhile
Moronic and mindless
Insulting and vile

Praise the substandard
Of corporate bile
The idiot hero
To identify?

Idiot Archetype!
Idiot Archetype!

Cerebral conditioning
Mental decay
Social pollution
Well on its way

Force-fed this garbage
By leaving no choice
Wrapped up in an option
Believed by most?

Praise the substandard
Of corporate bile
The idiot hero
To identify?

Idiot Archetype!
Idiot Archetype!
Track Name: W.A.A.G.
WE ARE ALL GUILTY!

Of Hate
Of Lies
Of plotting your Demise

Of Greed
Of Lust
Of betraying your Trust

We are all Guilty!
We are all Guilty!

Of Thought
Of Life
Of everlasting Strife

Of Hope
Of Fear
Of shedding pointless Tears

We are all Guilty!
Track Name: Amphetaminophaeliac
AMPHETAMINOPHAELIAC

Chemical daze
Massive palpitations
Hemorrhaging heart
Violent culmination
Delusional state
Cerebral infestation
Paranoia!

Medicinal craze
Total lack of control
Apathy reigns
Deep inside your system
Fighting the urge
Weakness wins the battle
Addiction!

Cravings commence
And so does the frenzy
Substance abuse
Is your way of living
Losing the grip
On your own existence
Psychosis!

Depression hits hard
Excessive agitation
Suicide seems
Like a real option
As your load up
Yet another helping
Subjugated!
