Unhappy RIP Chris Whitley.

Indian Summer

Summer is lost now
The frost is closing n
To the cold gospel goller
The poor man walks in sin
I cant get no entrance, the doors all in rows
I pray into the distance, let me out of these heavy clothes

I beg, Indian summer, I need some return
So hard to get warm out
when its so easy to get burn
Down in the pavment, the laws are learn
It's so hard to get warm where, its so easy to get a burn

When a sister called up, said how long you broken down?
I said there is too much Ice around here, to find now soli ground
While I just squeeze a season, from this paper bag
I pray to the burning tires, and wrap my feet in rags

oh, Indian summer, I need some return
So hard to get warm out
when its so easy to get a burn
Down in the pavment, the laws are learn
Its so hard to get warm where, its so easy to get a burn

Now the skies are empty
The street is sweating ters
Communing at the station
For a million grinding years
While I'm riding out this century
With the harvest engine sing
From the church in mercenares
To a naked virgin spring

I'm singing,

Indian summer, I need some return
So hard to get warm out
when its so easy to get a burn
Down in the pavment, the laws are learn
It's so hard to get warm where, its so easy to get a burn


Narcotic Prayer

As the party closes
I ain't got a clue
Red and yellow roses
Nipple rings and tattoos
Well, I never met no girl
No one, no where
I never met no girl
Narcotic Prayer
If I seen her breathing
How could I adjust
Should I see her bleeding
Calling me in trust
Well I never met no girl
No one, no where
Narcotic Prayer
I copped and caught a movie
But you know it can't last
Lights come up and I just crashed


To Joy (Revolution Of the Innocents)

made a bid for you-

You know
Far as it was in me-
Somewhere to go
She goes - make my presence
Felt by
All the innocence you would destroy
She know - Angels
And even devils too
All await to show
How far we come to joy

I'll live anywhere you think you're from
Far as it is in you
To know you belong
She go - make my presence
Felt by
All the revolution you employ
She know - angels
And even devils too
Await to show how far we go to joy

Go down to the river
With your rod
All that which ain't all good
Is yet all god

She goes
Make my presence
Felt by
All the innocence you would destroy

Angels
And even devils too
All await to show
How far we go to joy

She go
Make my presence
Felt by
By all the revolution you would employ
She know
Angels
And even devils too
All wait to show
How far we go to joy

How far we come
How far we've come


Weightless

The ground gives as you go
With all them secrets that you know
As if to give nothing away
Of the signals you obey
You're weightless as a child
Falling from above
Helpless to your size
Lonelier than God
Footsteps, empty room
As if a temple or a tomb
The bed gives where you lay
As if to give nothing away
Of the power you betray
You're weightless as a child
Falling from above
Helpless to your size
Lonelier than God
Lonelier than God
Falling from above
You're weightless as a child


Wild Country

Breaking rocks all day on the avenue
its hard to unearth anything thats true
soon I am gonna loose these rags and run
Returning to the wild where I'm from

There's miles of stone, jack hammer in my hand
There's compromises, I cant comprehend
soon I am gonna drop this jack and run
Returning to the wild where I'm from
Returning to the wild where I'm from

Between the bricks you'll hear the children play
Their calaces get harder day by day
Between the cracks you'll notice where I've gone
Returning to the wild, where I belong

Soon I am gonna loose these rags and run
Returning to the wild, where I'm from
Returning to the wild, where I'm from

Cool Panic! At the Disco--'A Fever You Can't Sweat Out'

One unique band that became popular in 2005 was Panic! At the Disco, an alternative pop punk group which utilized many theatrical elements in their stage set. Much of their inspiration is to have come from the 2001 movie musical 'Moulin Rouge!'

The band formed in Las Vegas in 2004 with guitarist Ryan Ross and drummer Spencer Smith. When their lineup became secure, the band took their name from the lyrics of a song by the band Name Taken, called "Panic". Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz was so impressed by them that he asked them to sign on to his Fueled By Ramen record label.

The band's debut album A Fever You Can't Sweat Out sold poorly at first, but after much exposure on MTV and heavy promotion, the album climbed up the indie charts. The album's music was organized like a vaudevillian musical project with various styles from pop punk to electronic pop.


How's this for a song title:

The Only Difference Between Martyrdom And Suicide Is Press Coverage

Sit tight, I'm gonna need you to keep time
Come on just snap, snap, snap your fingers for me
Good, good now we're making some progress
Come on just tap, tap, tap your toes to the beat
And I believe this may call for a proper introduction, and well
Don't you see, I'm the narrator, and this is just the prologue?

Swear to shake it up, if you swear to listen
Oh, we're still so young, desperate for attention
I aim to be your eyes, trophy boys, trophy wives

Swear to shake it up, and you swear to listen
Oh, we're still so young, desperate for attention
I aim to be your eyes, trophy boys, trophy wives

Applause, applause, no wait wait
Dear studio audience, I've an announcement to make:
It seems the artists these days are not who you think
So we'll pick back up on that on another page

And I believe this may call for a proper introduction, and well
Don't you see, I'm the narrator and this is just the prologue

Swear to shake it up, if you swear to listen
Oh, we're still so young, desperate for attention
I aim to be your eyes, trophy boys, trophy wives

Swear to shake it up, and you swear to listen
Oh, we're still so young, desperate for attention
I aim to be your eyes, trophy boys, trophy wives

Swear to shake it up, you swear to listen
Swear to shake it up, you swear to listen
Swear to shake it up, you swear to listen
Swear to shake it up, swear to shake it up

Swear to shake it up, if you swear to listen
Oh, we're still so young, desperate for attention
I aim to be your eyes, trophy boys, trophy wives

Swear to shake it up, if you swear to listen
Oh, we're still so young, desperate for attention
I aim to be your eyes

Lying Is The Most Fun A Girl Can Have Without Taking Her Clothes Off

Is it still me that makes you sweat?
Am I who you think about in bed?
When the lights are dim and your hands are shaking as you're sliding off your dress?
Then think of what you did
And how I hope to God he was worth it.
When the lights are dim and your heart is racing as your fingers touch his skin.
I've got more wit, a better kiss, a hotter touch, a better f***
Than any boy you'll ever meet, sweetie you had me
Girl I was it, look past the sweat, a better love deserving of
Exchanging body heat in the passenger seat?
No, no, no, you know it will always just be me

Let's get these teen hearts beating. Faster, faster
So testosterone boys and harlequin girls,
Will you dance to this beat, and hold a lover close?
So testosterone boys and harlequin girls,
Will you dance to this beat, and hold a lover close?

So I guess we're back to us, oh cameraman, swing the focus
In case I lost my train of thought, where was it that we last left off?
(Let's pick up, and go)

Oh now I do recall, we were just getting to the part
Where the shock sets in, and the stomach acid finds a new way to make you get sick.
I hope you didn't expect that you'd get all of the attention.
Now let's not get selfish
Did you really think I’d let you kill this chorus?

Let's get these teen hearts beating. Faster, faster
So testosterone boys and harlequin girls,
Will you dance to this beat, and hold a lover close?
So testosterone boys and harlequin girls,
Will you dance to this beat, and hold a lover close?

Dance to this beat
Dance to this beat
Dance to this beat

I Write Sins Not Tragedies

Oh, well imagine, as I'm pacing the pews in a church corridor,
and I can't help but to hear, no I can't help but to hear an exchanging of words:
"What a beautiful wedding! What a beautiful wedding!" says a bridesmaid to a waiter.
"And yes, but what a shame, what a shame, the poor groom's bride is a whore."

I chime in with a "Haven't you people ever heard of closing a goddamn door?!"
No, it's much better to face these kinds of things with a sense of poise and rationality.
I chime in, "Haven't you people ever heard of closing a goddamn door?!"
No, it's much better to face these kinds of things with a sense of...

Well in fact, well I'll look at it this way, I mean technically our marriage is saved
Well this calls for a toast, so pour the champagne
Oh! Well in fact, well I'll look at it this way, I mean technically our marriage is saved
Well this calls for a toast, so pour the champagne, pour the champagne

I chime in with a "Haven't you people ever heard of closing a goddamn door?!"
No, it's much better to face these kinds of things with a sense of poise and rationality.
I chime in, "Haven't you people ever heard of closing a goddamn door?!"
No, it's much better to face these kinds of things with a sense of poise and rationality.

Again...

I chime in, "Haven't you people ever heard of closing a goddamn door?!"
No, it's much better to face these kinds of things with a sense of poise and rationality.
I chime in, "Haven't you people ever heard of closing a goddamn door?!"
No, it's much better to face these kinds of things with a sense of poise and rationality.

Again...


Build God, Then We'll Talk

It's these substandard motels on the (lalalalala) corner of 4th and Fremont Street.
Appealing only because they are just that un-appealing
Any practiced catholic would cross themselves upon entering.
The rooms have a hint of asbestos and maybe just a dash of formaldehyde,
And the habit of decomposing right before your very (lalalala) eyes.

Along with the people inside
What a wonderful caricature of intimacy
Inside, what a wonderful caricature of intimacy

Tonight tenants range from: a lawyer and a virgin
Accessorizing with a rosary tucked inside her lingerie
She's getting a job at the firm come Monday.
The Mrs. will stay with the cheating attorney
moonlighting aside, she really needs his money.
Oh, wonderful caricature of intimacy.

Yeah (Yeah)

And not to mention, the constable, and his proposition, for that "virgin"
Yes, the one the lawyer met with on "strictly business"
as he said to the Mrs., only hours before,
after he had left, she was fixing her face in a compact.
There was a terrible crash (There was a terrible crash)
Between her and the badge
She spilled her purse and her bag, and held a "purse" of a different kind.

Along with the people inside
What a wonderful caricature of intimacy
Inside, what a wonderful caricature of intimacy

There are no raindrops on roses and girls in white dresses.
It's sleeping with roaches and taking best guesses
At the shade of the sheets and before all the stains
And a few more of your least favorite things.

Oh No Ozzy Osbourne--'Under Cover'

So now that Ozzy had finally tarnished his reputation as the ultimate rock and roll showman by becoming a major bloated t.v. show-man, what was next? Oh, yes, of course, another, uhhh, album. Yeah, that's it, one of those round thingies that Ozzy was originally known for making. Well, in 2005, he added yet another one to his roster, the highly under-anticipated Under Cover, which featured, you guessed it: cover songs. So were we gonna expect some totally slamming tunes by Slayer, Priest, and other cool metal-riffic bands?

Not exactly. The Ozzzzzzzman did have a number of re-sung classic rock tracks including:

Track listing

1. "Rocky Mountain Way" by Joe Walsh,
2. "In My Life" by The Beatles
3. "Mississippi Queen" by Mountain
4. "Go Now" by the Moody Blues
5. "Woman" by John Lennon
6. "21st Century Schizoid Man" by King Crimson
7. "All the Young Dudes" by Mott the Hoople
8. "For What It's Worth" by Buffalo Springfield
9. "Good Times" by The Animals
10. "Sunshine of Your Love" by Cream
11. "Fire" by The Crazy World of Arthur Brown
12. "Working Class Hero" by John Lennon
13. "Sympathy for the Devil" by the Rolling Stones.

In addition to his abysmal cover of Black Sabbath's "N.I.B." earlier, featuring Primus bassist Les Claypool, none of these songs were worth writing home about. One could only stand to hear Ozzy's over-processed gargling-with-pudding voice for only so long.

Jerry Cantrell of Alice In Chains made a guest appearance on guitar.


Q magazine ranked Under Cover 47th in their list of The 50 Worst Albums Ever.

Cool Los Lonely Boys

Skipping back to 2004 for a moment, one bright spot on the pop charts was Los Lonely Boys, a trio of Latino brothers, guitarist/vocalist Henry Garza, Jojo Garza on bass guitar and vocals, and Ringo Garza on drums and vocals (Ringo? Where have we heard that name for a drummer before?? ). Following in the footsteps of their father Ringo Garza Sr., who led a conjunto band called The Falcones (conjunto is a style of Tejano music), the Texas-born trio stopped in Nashville for a while before returning to their home state to record at Willie Nelson's home studio in 2003. In 2004, they released their self-titled debut album which featured the hit "Heaven".

In 2005, the group recorded "I Don't Wanna Lose Your Love," with Santana for his album 'All That I Am'.

The brothers were not exactly Hanson, or a certain group of brothers that would soon dominate the pop charts as part of the next wave of teen idols. Los Lonely Boys could actually play.

Heaven

Save me from this prison
Lord help me get away
Cause only you can save me now
From this misery
I've been lost in my own place
And I'm getting' weary
How far is heaven
And I know I need to change
My ways of livin'
How far is heaven, Lord can you tell me

I've been locked up way too long
In this crazy world, how far is heaven
I just keep on prayin' Lord
Just keep on livin', how far is heaven
Yeah,Lord can you tell me, how far is heaven
I just got to know how far, how far is heaven
Yeah,Lord can you tell me

Tu que estas en alto cielo,
Echame tu bendiciòn
[translated from Spanish]
[You that's in a higher place
Send me down a blessing]

Cause I know there's a better place
Than this place I'm livin', how far is heaven
So I just got to have some faith
And just keep on giving, how far is heaven
Yeah,Lord can you tell me, how far is heaven
I just gotta know how far, how far is heaven,
Yeah,Lord can you tell me, how far is heaven,
'cause I just gotta know how far,
I just wanna know far

Cool Slipknot, Lamb Of God, and Shadows Fall tour

One of the big highlights of 2005 was the Slipknot tour with Shadows Fall and Lamb Of God opening. They made an appearance at the Tacoma Dome that April, and I was excited about going!! Not for Slipknot, but for the openers Lamb Of God and Shadows Fall!!!

Well, even though the ticket said 7:30 or whenever it was that the show started, I was in line and when I finally got in, Shadows Fall was halfway finished with their set!! : I wished that that they would have let us in earlier!!! I guess the show was at 7 but we were told too late... But still it was a killer set, vocalist Brian Fair told the crowd, "Let's make this a KISS concert from 1978!!!" You know he was ready for major crowd mayhem!! I really wanted to see more of them, but I would get my chance at Ozzfest later that summer. They were definitely one of the bands bringing metal back!! I had to go and get a Shadows Fall t-shirt in the concession stands.

Next up was Lamb Of God, who started the show out with something rather unexpected. It was a vocal track of a woman singing in Arabic, rather sad and dirge-like, full of pain. The lights and sound effects of what resembled helicopters filled the stage and P.A., and it was clear that these were images and sounds relating to the war in Iraq. It was haunting, and very effective. There was no question where the band stood on the issue of the war, the clip of the woman singing was mourning the death of her country and homeland while U.S. military copters circled overhead. It was an image which stayed with you. Finally Randall Blythe and the band broke out on stage, and the floor erupted into a moshpit!! They played the songs from their most recent album, 'Ashes Of the Wake', and, as they had the album out in the concession stands, I had to pick up that as well.

Also, Blythe had clipped his big lick of hair and went on with a shaved head. Guess he didn't want to look "emo", fortunately, as before. Not at all emo to begin with, but didn't want to be confused with being one, apparently.

As far as the Slipknot set was concerned, the stage resembled that of the Hollywood Squares, and the band did their usual thing of beating drumkits with baseball bats and the typical pandemonium. It was "un-together", no real choreography, just mayhem. It should have been everything I'd ever want in a rock concert, but it wasn't. I wasn't even familiar with a lot of their music. But maybe later, I'd listen and watch with a more open, objective mind. I left for home after half an hour. I'd gotten to see some of my new favorites.

Strangely, though the tour was successful, one place where Lamb Of God was not able to play was the L.A. Forum. Shadows Fall was allowed to open for Slipknot, but Lamb Of God was not. Why?? Well, it seems that the owners of the Forum were of the Southern Baptist Convention, and took offense to the name "Lamb of God", regarding it as "blasphemous". There was nothing blasphemous about the band, nothing "satanic" (good thing they hadn't kept their old name Burn the Priest), but one can't accuse the SBC of being too hip to all things metal. Which was really strange, because Slipknot was shaping up to being a rather controversial band itself. Bannings on account of metal's reputation were going to become commonplace, as we shall see.

Talking End of 2005!!!

Seeing that we're running out of things to report on the momentous year 2005, it's time to draw the year to a close and continue on to the next exciting year in the history of rock and roll, 2006!!!

I'm sure there are a ton of things left to cover about 2005, in fact, I know there are, but we'll touch on them soon enough. For now, let us continue on.
But first, a final thought about one of the most controversial events of 2005, of course, the egging incident of Iron Maiden by $haron Osbourne at Ozzfest 2005. Her reason was that anyone who badmouthed her family and show deserved nothing less.


What was the $auron's response to none other than TV legend Bill Cosby about 'The Osbournes' phenomenon?

Bill Cosby commented thusly:

“All of you need to stop with this Ozzy Osbourne — this is a sad, sad family. It is a sad case. The children are sad and the parents are sad and it’s not entertainment.” Cosby added, “It is the kind of entertainment that you look at but you wouldn’t want it in your home. I don’t like to look at things like that.”

Amen to Cosby!! 'The Cosby Show' was funny. 'The Osbournes' is not.
I may claim ignorance in only watching a few episodes, but I didn't get it. I didn't understand it. This was funny??


So is Bill Cosby going to get egged, too??

Exclamation The blackest day of the entire century.

It was a day which occurred only once a century, and in mid-year 2006, it took place on the day of the release of a major metal album. Was it coincidence?? Continents shook, the skies darkened, Barbarians descended and cities erupted in flames and chaos.

It was June 6, 2006.

On the calendar:


6/6/6!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Red face The world braces itself for the new Slayer album!!!!

The impending collapse of the world as we know it, prefaced by continents cracking open to devour the populace, skies raining down fire and brimstone, plagues of locusts and lemmings devouring all, was timed perfectly for the upcoming release of Slayer's new album. Death, doom, destruction, new Slayer. Coincidence? We think not.


So metal fans and their nervous parents clutched anything they could grab hold of, bracing for the Apocalypse which the new album would bring about!!!
Record store doors (what little remained after the advent of internet downloading) opened, and merchants and mall owners cringed, awaiting the breaking of the Seals and blowing of the Trumpets announcing the fulfillment of the Book of Revelation--where the heavens would turn black, rivers would turn red, and mankind would endure its final hour!!!!



Well, it didn't quite happen that way. June 6, 2006 saw none of the upcoming album by Slayer. Wouldn't it have been the coolest PR promotion, the greatest marketing tool, to have their album released on 6.6.06?? Try as they might, it didn't really happen on schedule. For one thing, Tom Araya was in the hospital undergoing gall bladder surgery, and for another, guitarist Kerry King said that they did not want to be lumped along with all the other "half-ass, stupid fing loser bands" releasing albums on that same day, as it was a big day for releases. In actuality, the band was delayed and were not able to secure enough studio time to finish in time for its release on that day. To placate Slayer fans drooling in anticipation for a little bite from the band, a limited-edition Slayer EP, Eternal Pyre, was released through Hot Topic outlets. The EP featured the track "Cult", as well as a live video performance of "War Ensemble" and studio outtakes. Two other songs, "Jihad" and "Eyes Of the Insane", were to featured on the new album.

During that day, radio stations all across the country played Slayer tunes round the clock. It was a great day............to be a Slayer fan.

The next day, the country, and the rest of the world went back to work, drank Mountain Dew, and watched episodes of "Scrubs". Or whatever.

Red face Slayer--'Christ Illusion'

Slayer's next full-length album, Christ Illusion, was finally released on August 8, 2006. The world did not end on that day, but many metal fans' long wait had. This was their first album to featured the return of original drummer Dave Lombardo. And once again, as was fitting for Slayer, the album came chock full of controversy--and not just for its unflattering depiction of Christ on the cover.

The album cover, illustrated by artist Larry Carroll, who had painted Slayer covers including 'Reign In Blood', 'South Of Heaven', and 'Seasons In the Abyss', was one of the reasons for the delay in the release of the album. The album depicted Christ as a pathetic, emaciated figure with missing hands and limbs, as well as a bleary-eyed face and grimy pallor more fitting a drug addict or wino rather than a revered Savior full of a radiant glow. The "Christ figure" caricature wades through a bloody sea of severed heads. Many record outlets were appalled and outraged at the cover art and refused to carry the album. The record label decided to release an alternate cover with the band's logo cut through a white surface under which the offending artwork could be seen.

The album cover art reflected the personal views of guitarist Kerry King, who railed against religion as one great con job foisted on humanity. Bassist Tom Araya, however, was more sympathetic to Christianity, and felt personally more connected to it by his Catholic roots. If the album's artwork was controversial, what lie inside the lyrics would shock practically everyone.

But what if June 6, 2006 hadn't been a Tuesday, the day of audio and video recording releases?

Music The Subdudes - Behind the Levee

The Subdudes, an American roots rock band from New Orleans, released their somewhat provocatively titled LP Behind the Levee in 2006.

Comprised of Tommy Malone on vocals, acoustic, electric, and slide guitars, John Magnie on vocals, accordion, keyboards, Jimmy Messa on bass and guitar, and Steve Amedée on tambourine, drums and percussion, and vocals, the Subdudes took a great deal of inspiration from gospel, blues, folk, and country.

Behind the Levee featured "Papa Dukie and the Mud People," a tune recalling the day a busload of hippies came to town that became a favorite on public radio.

Papa Dukie and the Mud People - the Subdudes

Back in the day, in our sleep little town
Out of nowhere, a hippie band came around
They set up camp (down by the river)
Close to SoSo curve (behind the levee)
Folks said stay away (them people are dirty)
Tell Deputy Momio, get down there in a hurry
Nanananananananana...

He said they got them hippie girls
Taking off all their clothes
They're swimming in the river
Painting beads, making rainbows, and singing

Chorus:

Love is a beautiful thing
I can't wait to see what the new day brings
Love is a beautiful thing
Make you wanna dance, make you wanna holler
Nanananananananana...

I remember
Supper time conversation, opinions flew
I ain't sure about my daddy
I think he kinda liked the view

Brother said they ain't hurting nobody
(ain't hurting nobody)
Leave the Mud People alone
Momio said they ain't broken no laws
and I kinda like to hear that song

Chorus

The was patcouli incense
And weed smoke in the air
It was all colors, it was all love
And it was all right
Me and my brother stayed right there
Singing all through the night

Chorus

Make you wanna dance, and cry, and
laugh, and sing
Nananana...make you wanna holler
Nananana...down by the river
Nananana...behind the levee

Red face Slayer

One of the most controversial songs that Slayer has ever done put them far beyond the accusations twenty years before of being "Satanists"--this time, one song from the new album, titled "Jihad", written by guitarist Jeff Hanneman. The band was irritated with other bands' American perspective of the attacks on New York and Washington D.C. in 2001, so they wrote their own disturbing version. The band sparked outrage from the families of 9/11 victims with the song written from the point of view of the terrorists.

Guitarist Kerry King said, "In America every band under the sun has written their 9/11 song. And that's why I didn't want to have any part of it, but this is really cool. It kind of has an 'Angel of Death' feel because it doesn't condemn anyone or say that anyone's right or wrong."

He explained that the song was about seeing 9/11 unfold through the eyes of the terrorists. The reason why the song was so condemned was that the band made no moral point against the terrorists. Was the band defending them?

The link to the thread below is one that I started criticizing their stance, though I understand now what they were getting at. The band noticed that in the aftermath of 9/11, there was a plethora of songs by artists making the typical feel-good "hurray-for-our-side, boo-on-them" token patriotic songs chock full of nice moralizing. Which was fine, and understandable, but this was not Slayer's way of doing things. The band was simply trying to see things the way the perpetrators of 9/11 were seeing them, not making a moral statement against (and certainly not for) their actions, but trying to instill a chilling unsettling feeling of the detachment that these terrorists had toward the life and safety of their victims and for themselves. Spurred by the religious obsession for holy war (jihad means "struggle") and the promise of Paradise with seventy vestal virgins awaiting them upon their demise, the terrorists threw off moral considerations and all compassion for their victims' plight in order to see their bloody objectives fulfilled. Slayer were not about to moralize, that was not their style. They were not about to preach, like all other bands did, that was not the Slayer way. They depicted their actual moral stance against 9/11's perpetrators by showing what was going through their minds, the horror of such callousness. If there was any moral statement to be made, it was certainly not overt. It was there, but couched in the themes of bloodshed and brutality. The band was actually making a statement against religion as causing acts of savagery such as the one caused by the hijackers on 9/11.

Because Slayer were considered "the bad boys" of metal, it was naturally expected that they acted "insensitively" toward such calamities as September 11, 2001, just as Marilyn Manson was targeted for spurring on the Columbine massacre.

Jihad

I have witnessed your death
I've seen it many times
Your tortured screams
Your decrypted little mind
A father's son
With pathetic eyes that bleed
Twins in the end
Begin and let the brothers fall

I will see you burned alive
Screaming for your God
I will hunt you down again for Him

God won't judge what I've done
He crawls upon my feet
A privileged pain
Beneath buried are your dead
On splintered bones I walk
Sifting through the blood
Besieged to fear
Await the coming of the God!

I will watch you die again for Him

Blood is raining downward
The stain reflects the sun
Conquer divide within
Terrorize the mind
I've seen the end it's yours
Rosary in hand
Your selfish flesh it melts
Spilling from the sky

I will see you burn alive
Screaming for your God
I will watch you die

This is God's war
God's war
This is God's war
God's war

War of holy principles
I'm seeking God's help in your destruction
Slit the throat of heathen man
And let his blood dilute the water
Bury your dead

F*** your God erase his name
A lady weeps insane with sorrow
I'll take his towers from the world
You're f***ing raped upon your deathbed

This is God's war
God's war
This is God's war
God's war
F***ing holy war

Be optimistic, happy, and calm
Show no fear or anxiety
Smile at the face of God
And your reward will be eternity
Holy warriors your patience will be justified
Everything is for Him
You must not comfort the animal before you kill it
Strike as champions at the heart of the non-believers
Strike above the neck and at all extremities
For it's a point of no return for Almighty God
God will give victory to his faithful servants
When you reach ground zero you will have killed the enemy
The Great Satan!

Red face Slayer

So by Slayer not writing songs explicitly condemning the terrorists on 9/11, they were not specifically endorsing them. The outrage seems to have been sparked by the automatic "if-you're-not-for-us-then-you're-against-us" mentality fostered by Bush after 9/11. It almost seemed
"mandatory" or obligatory for bands to write their typical anti-terrorist songs full of patented outrage and predictable indignation. This was not Slayer's style. It just wouldn't be Slayer if they didn't do something to shock or offend. But they simply weren't being provocateurs, they were only making people take a different look at the incident. By approaching it with a sort of detachment from the actual moral outrage, to put themselves in the place of the cold, unfeeling perpetrators, to merely describe their thoughts as they performed their heinous actions, without pointing fingers at the hijackers, they created an unsettling, sinister feeling in the mind of the listener. "So this is what they must have been thinking." It was like watching a movie and understanding the attitudes and motives of the villain. For a moment, we identify with the culprit.

Still, many around the world were not sympathetic with Slayer's inclusion of the song on the album. The song outraged the Mumbai-based Catholic Secular Forum in India. As a result, all Indian stocks of the album were recalled and destroyed by EMI India (of course, a very strong bastion of Christianity, no doubt. ). As we soon see, many on the other side of the world had strong feelings about heavy metal, and many authorities went beyond merely trashing the albums.

One song had wider critical acceptance, "Eyes Of the Insane". Tom Araya read about the plight of American soldiers returning from Iraq, and how many of them were severely traumatized and emotionally incapacitated as a result of what they had seen there. The story was "one that the military doesn't want you to know. They sweep it under the rug, but it's a story that needs to be told," Araya said. It was true, returning soldiers may have come back as heroes for their service to their country, but their emotional well-being was destroyed in the process. Reports emerged that a record number of soldiers suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and other afflictions were seeking medical attention, and were finding it hard to readjust to life after their tour of duty.


Eyes Of the Insane

A soldier's heart
Reflecting back at me
I keep seeing mutilated faces
Even in my dreams
Distorted images
Flashing rapidly
Psychotically abusing me
Devouring my brain

The eyes of the insane
On a demented campaign

Tortured spirits
Will not let me rest
These thoughts of mutilated faces
Completely possessed
Fragmented images
Flashing rapidly
Psychotically abusing me
Whirling through my head

Shellshocked
Battle mortise
Overwhelming anxiety
Flashbacks
Panic attacks
Death raising it's ugly face at me!

Got to make it stop
Can't take it any more
They're all dead
Keep haunting me
They just keep coming back for more!

The eyes of the insane
On a demented campaign
Flashbacks
Panic attacks
Death raising it's ugly face at me!

Got to make it stop
Can't take it any more!
Death's face keeps haunting me
And just keeps coming back for more!

Got to make it stop
Can't take it any more!
Death's face keeps haunting me
And just keeps coming back for more!

A soldier
Of misfortune
I owe my pain and suffering
To this hell
These demons
Ripping through my soul
Evil's relentless hostility
Won't let me sleep

Shellshocked
Battle mortise
Devastating insanity
Flashbacks
Panic attacks
Death's rotting
He's coming for me!!
