"Of One Blood" as written by and Jonathan Donais Matthew Bachand....
Abandon this search for an ultimate reality
Your words only used to conceal the true meaning
Never speaking from the heart
As you've built a wall of lies, silence falls

Awakened all that you despise
These lies, our chosen roles
Force-fed your values and your goals
Why? You won't see

Truth : unity
Bound eternally
Reincarnation of the eternal soul
This struggle forever in our blood boils

Withstanding these attacks
Lay waste to all your claims
Kept chained no longer
Finding strength in all your shames

These lies our chosen roles
Force-fed your values and your goals
Why? You won't see
Truth: unity

Bound eternally
Forgiveness for those who stray
Protection through unity
Forgiveness for those who stray

Protection through unity
These lies, our chosen roles
Force-fed your values and your goals
Why? You won't see

Truth : unity
Bound eternally
Forgiveness for those who stray
Protection through unity

Forgiveness for those who stray
Protection through unity

    General Commentits very hard to work out, it sounds like a band of guys, you know, forgiveness for those who stray protection in unity, kinda somes that up, but the verses then kinda conflict with that,...any ideas?

    General Commentthis song has one of the fastest and most brilliant guitar solos i have ever heard before. the guitarist is a complete genius and could probably hold his own with the greats like michael angelo batio and yngwie easily. slash would shit his pants if he tried to beat him. only solo i can think of now that might be out of his reach is "time traveler" by michael angelo. if you want to argue with me on how hard this song is to play, ive been playing for about 10 years now, and i cant even touch the solo. i doubt a lot of professional guitarists couldnt either. they probably couldnt get this good ever.

    General CommentIt's about enemies forgiving each other I think. It can be used with any sort of nemesis. We are all brothers I think is what the song is implying. You can't hold a grudge forever.

    General CommentMan if you think that solo in this song is fast, check out some bits of Ghosts Of Past Failures on their 'The War Within' album... I tabbed it and it's pretty close to spot on (most of the other tabs were completely rubbish)

    Note that these are 16th notes at about 210 bpm... try playing this I'm convinced it's all legato...(paste into notepad :D)

    Q=210

    General CommentThats funny, cause this song just played on my shuffle on the way to work, and i pretty much just came here to mention how nasty this solo is.

    Self righteousy metal/harcore lyrics.....they're everywhere. Satisfaction is the Death of Desire is filled with them...not saying thats bad or anything (well, it can get a little tiring) but it's not so shrouded in symbolism or metaphor. Get tight with your crew, protect each other. Those who've fallen off - well, forgive them - and fuck all this shit about what we're "supposed" to do or be.....cause that ain't metal.

    You could probably make an argument for it being about the industry....recording wise. Record label values and goals. Sticking to you mates but not holding it against those who've compromised for money or fame. Thats a stretch though maybe.
