You failed to do your job.
Superstitous cover up.
They'll pay you because of your mistakes.
You lie, you lie, you lie and they pay.
You fail, you fail, you fail and they pay.
Superstition. Unholy children. '
Blinded vision. False ambition.
Can you show me how they're guilty?
You liars, you killers.
Blame the (so-called) unholy children.
With your blinded vision.
And your false ambition.

    General Commentum, is not biased. it states facts and shit from the investigation(sp?)
    anyway, yes FREE THE THREE!
    and shadowsfall, you said it yourself, there was no evidence AGAINST THEM. and in the court of law you are innocent until proven guilty. and if there is no evidence against them, they should be freed!

    General CommentThis is a very emotional song. There is a lot of meaning in it. It shows us what failure as human beings some people are. In listening to it, you can almost feel the anger and sadness. I highly enjoy this songs. songs like these are a rare find.

    General CommentI agree, this song goes deep. "you liars, you killers" the way he expresses the lyrics in song... it is emotional. Once you get used to Zao it isn't screaming anymore, its expression.

    General Commentthis meaning of this song is straightforward, and it's a good cause... it shows that not all Christians (or so-called thereof) are as stupid to condemn people to prison because they are reputed as Satanists, not even to accuse them of such a heinous crime with absolutely no evidence... i'm trying to work on making a transcript of the report read during the song... the first voice is pretty easy to decipher, the second voice a bit harder... the third voice is virtually impossible to hear... anyway...

    General Commentactually ferret/phattom you are wrong cause in the cd insert the lyrics read "you fail you fail you fail and they pay" so the lyrics are right. but i think this song is so amazing and moving, I love when bands take a stand against an obvious in-justice like this. Its hard to believe how people could let something like this happen, but I'm glad that ZAO is in support of the WM3

    General Commenti'd never heard of this case before, but i'm interested in it. i'm kind of curious to see how dan learned about it, and why he decided to write a song for it. as far as the meaning goes, it's pretty self-explanitory after you read the case story on the website
