"Burial" as written by and Peter Tosh....
Blessed is he who has got
His transgressions forgiven
And his sins hidden
Blessed is the man whom the Lord
Do not ascribe misdeeds
And is without deceit in his spirit

Buried it deep inside
But soon a sprout came forth
It kept on growing
I couldn't hide
When I kept it to myself
Slowly my bones corroded
And my vitality vanished
Like in the summer dry

Too many people living this life
Who can take their guilt away?
Their minds are rotting
And causing an endless pain
Soon they are demented and put away

I confessed my sins to You
And did not hide my guilt
I said "I want to confess my misdeeds to You"
And He took away my sin and guilt

He is my sanctuary

    General CommentThis song means a lot to me. It is based on Psalm 32. Read it and you read the song lyrics.

    General CommentThese guys are friggin' sweet man. They can take something so spiritually significant as a verse from the Bible and turn them into sickeningly heavy death metal. Totally awesome.

    General CommentYeah, why talk about God in a song?

    Why sing about ANYTHING?

    If you don't like it, don't listen to it.

    General Commentwhy talk about God in a song? maybe because a song is a way to express yourself... why the fuck would you sing about ANYTHING... cuz you FEEL like it... not to please other people... you fucks are ignorant pricks... just cuz YOU personally don't agree with the message the song is trying to put out... doesn't mean the song sucks... if you don't like it... don't listen to it.... go listen to your Avril Lavigne shit... fucktards.

    General CommentHaha rabbitsrabbit, couldn't have said it better myself! These assholes are just used to songs about money, 'hoes' and gay fucking 'bling"...show them a song with any meaning at all and they go berserk - so you don't complain when songs are about killing or 'against the establishment', but when a song comes out about a person's faith, you freak out? You guys are fucked in the head...

    General Commentyo you guys are so stupis. if god or the idea thereof inspired them to write a song then all the power to you. i'm sure you don't see right wing conservatives going crazy on the rise against pages. and why's that? because most fo you agree with the message? well that's bullshit. open your mind for 3 seconds and listen to music becuase it's a good ong and don't bring personal politics into it. i don't believe in god but this is still a decent song. christ on a bicycle grow up.
