Sent To Destroy
Combichrist Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Iron boots, we're walking tall
With pride we'll walk all over you
Steel grip, we'll hold you down
On a leash, we're coming through

Metal teeth, a diamond smile
Mechanical jaws, a two ton bite
With winter frost, an atomic pile
We stand the ground where the big dog's fight

Divine inferno, hell on ice
Heaven's burning, sacrifice
Divine inferno, hell on ice
Heaven's burning, sacrifice

Your God sent us to destroy
Your God sent us to destroy
Your God sent us to destroy
Your God sent us to destroy

You

Nuclear war, behind glass walls
We long for the storm, we stray from our path
Feel the walls, closing in
Chasing our trails, we're feeding our wrath

Metal teeth, a diamond smile
Mechanical jaws, a two ton bite
With winter frost, an atomic pile
We stand the ground where the big dog's fight

Divine inferno, hell on ice
Heaven's burning, sacrifice
Divine inferno, hell on ice
Heaven's burning, sacrifice

Your God sent us to destroy
Your God sent us to destroy
Your God sent us to destroy
Your God sent us to destroy

You
You
You

Your God sent us to destroy
Your God sent us to destroy
Your God sent us to destroy
Your God sent us to destroy




Your God sent us to destroy
Your God sent us to destroy

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Combichrist's song Sent to Destroy portrays a sense of arrogance, power and a mission to destroy everything in their path, possibly referring to a group of people who are strong and unstoppable. The phrase "Iron boots, we're walking tall" introduces the dominating demeanor of the group. With "steel grip", they are able to hold others "down on a leash", suggesting control over their prey. Accompanied by "metal teeth, a diamond smile, and mechanical jaws", they are described as possessing a strong and unstoppable force, "an atomic pile," standing ground in the face of any obstacle, even where the "big dogs fight".


The chorus, "Your God sent us to destroy", implies a religious motive behind their actions. This could suggest that the group is on a sanctioned mission from God to rid the earth of impurities or those who do not share the group's beliefs. The line "Nuclear war, behind glass walls" could also suggest that they have access to powerful weapons, indicating the destructive nature of their mission.


Overall, the lyrics present a dangerous and threatening side of humanity which is willing to destroy all in the name of religion or other beliefs, while feeling invincible and in control.

I will never forget going to see Rammstein in Ontario back in 2011 and I had no idea who was opening for them, a few songs in I looked at my cousin and yelled "This is combichrist!" It is to this day the best concert ive ever seen, Rammstein absolutely killed it with over the top effects and vocals and combichrist was the perfect opener.

Joe Henderson

Combichrist is better than rammstein

Desecrator6

how dare both of you... there's a reason they were opening act... don't deny Rammstein their glory... they've worked their asses off.

Sillyuncle

can't agree more.

@user-ij8zl3mo9vi mean they're overrated cuz they're good, im both huge fans of both bands

Blutrache

There will be no better openers than them for Rammstein, nowadays they take the same 2 girls, again and again, who play Rammstein songs at piano. At first it's boring and in second it's totally useless because you'll hear these songs few minutes later in a far better way.
