"Electric Funeral" as written by and Osbourne Butler....
Reflex in the sky warn you you're gonna die
Storm coming, you'd better hide from the atomic tide
Flashes in the sky turns houses into sties
Turns people into clay, radiation minds decay

Robot minds of robot slaves lead them to atomic rage
Plastic flowers, melting sun, fading moon falls upon
Dying world of radiation, victims of mad frustration
Burning globe of oxy'n fire, like electric funeral pyre

Buildings crashing down to a cracking ground
Rivers turn to wood, ice melting to flood
Earth lies in death bed, clouds cry water dead
Tearing life away, here's the burning pay

Electric funeral
Electric funeral
Electric funeral
Electric funeral

And so in the sky shines the electric eye
Supernatural king takes earth under his wing
Heaven's golden chorus sings, hell's angels flap their wings
Evil souls fall to hell, ever trapped in burning cell

    General CommentPantera's song is not better than the original.
    The song was made the way it was made. Something can't be 'better'.

    The original is always better, no matter what.
    --Remember this.

    General Commentits about a nuclear holocaust destroying the world. Most likely inspired by the fears of what would happen if the Cold War heated up.

    My InterpretationI agree that it could be about the end of the world due to nuclear war, but I can't hide the feeling that it may also be about Hiroshima/Nagasaki.

    My Interpretationi suppose very literally an electric funeral would be a funeral for the electronics, digital stuff etc. it makes sense seeing that the rest of the lyrics are about the world falling apart or things changing to their opposites.
