I am dead, I am the one.

Not clear what the one here is from
context. Or no context to give an
idea for it.

Dead I am the one, Exterminating son
Slipping through the trees, strangling the breeze
Dead I am the sky, watching angels cry
As they slowly turn, conquering the worm

I reflect that 俺こそが本物 isn¥'t good
for ¥'I am the one.¥'
It must mean おれがそうなんだ、

"dead" and the "exterminating son" is the same person here. Although I can't be sure unless I read the entire poem.

is this poem being sarcastic to humans?

I found a website that said ¥"the one¥" = ¥"救世主¥" which means ¥"the savior¥".

so let me change my answer to:
死せる救世主、俺は絶滅を及ぼす息子 木間を滑り抜けて・・

but I think the answer is in the Japanese version of Matrix Soundtrack CD. The song title is Dragula, performed by Rob Zombie
