This track contains a quote from Napalm Death's Evolved As One. It was also the inspiration for this song.



The unheard, the unspoken.
The hidden meanings, the unwritten word.
Misinterpretations, twisted truths.
Silenced cries, false dogma.
The Grand Opiate.

Unopposed, with eyes wide open.
Docile, dosed, dazed.
Swallow and choke, swallow and choke.
The Grand Opiate.

Blind to reason.
Inconvenient fact.
Pacified in chains.
Shackled without protest.
The Grand Opiate.

A distant nagging sensation.
Heard as from afar.
Fails to register.
Falls on Deaf Ears.
The Grand Opiate.

Smart phones.
Dumb humans.
Activate device.
Deactivate all thought.
They got you where they want you.
And you didn't even notice.
Without regret you embrace.
The Grand Opiate.

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.
