"Bite the Bullet" is a song included on the album Ritual. The sounding of this song harkens back to Roots and Soulfly 1 having nu metal sound in them. The chorus in this song has similar rhythm to that of "No" on Soulfly 1 and features 8-bit arcade-like tones. A tribal percussion can barely be heard during choruses. A reviewer on Today's Metal says this song could deservedly be a bonus track on Chaos A.D.

The title of this song is an idiom that refers to an avoidable decision for getting into a difficult, painful or even dangerous situation for the attempted benefit. The example is defending themselves in the war, that's what the song is about. For more about the phrase, including its origins, see Bite the bullet on Wikipedia.

Lyrics Edit

I am part of the war
I have been here before
Grease the tires, spill the blood
Innocents dragged through the mud

Anger, fear, rising contradiction
Suffer, pester, carrying this affliction

Bite, bite the bullet
Bite, bite the bullet
(Bite, bite, bite)
Rrah, bite the bullet
Bite, bite the bullet
Bite

I am the master
Of my enemies
Feed the lion, on the run
Just discovered what he had done

Power, hatred, that‘s just in your mouth
Demons, shadows, turn you inside out

Bite, bite the bullet
Bite, bite the bullet
(Bite, bite, bite)
Rrah, bite the bullet
Bite, bite the bullet, rrah
(Bite, bite, bite)

Only hate remains, hate
(Hate, hate, hate)
High
(High, high, high)
Oh

Hostile, visions, beyond resistance
Grotesque, horror, I am becoming
Summon, martyrs, gods of the old
War, eternal, war, immortal

Bite, bite the bullet
Bite, bite the bullet
(Bite, bite, bite)
Rrah, bite the bullet
Bite, bite the bullet
