Composed, arranged, performed, and produced by Decimation.
The cover artwork, "Crucifun" by Joseph A. Maloney, accompanies the following verse, which Decimation included above the lyrics on the back of the inlay.
"Scratching, biting, gnashing, gnawing,
Racing rats forever clawing
Oblivious to the carnage growing
So unaware and never knowing
For in whose image do they prey?
Consumed by those he meant to save
Raped in lust, consumed in greed,
Reduced to cuts on which to feed
'Take and eat, this is my flesh'
Thanks so much, now where's the rest?"

Recorded at Mars Studios.
Produced by Decimation and Bill Korecky
