"Swan Song" as written by Pepper Keenan, Philip Anselmo and Jimmy Bower....
My time, all my life
Some way, I saved
The memory, the pending,
The family, surround me

A god given time,
A god given gift of life.
A time to take away,
To kill the pain,
To give me to the ground.

The pills, the windowsill
Razor blade, great escape
So lonely, the feeling,
The slipping, the bleeding

Good lord where are you found?
Carry judgment way underground
Did you laugh at me, now alone?
Shoulda changed my way by now

Hero

A god given time,
A god given gift of life.
A time to take away,
To kill the pain,
To give me to the ground.

    General CommentThe correct lyrics to this song; how does this get updated?

    My time, all my life
    some way, I saved
    the memory, the pending,
    the family, surround me

    a god given time,
    a god given gift of life.
    a time to take away,
    to kill the pain,
    to give me to the ground.

    the pills, the windowsill
    razorblade, great escape
    so lonely, the feeling,
    the slipping, the bleeding

    good lord where are you found?
    carry judgement way underground
    did you laugh at me, now alone?
    shoulda changed my way by now...

    hero...(x4)

    a god given time,
    a god given gift of life.
    a time to take away,
    to kill the pain,
    to give me to the ground.

    (thanks)

    General CommentFirst of all, I find it disheartening that in my opinion one of the best band EVER is being treated this way

    #1 yeah down kicks fucking, we know
    #2 through out this web sight ever ones “pantera rocks” “no pantera sucks down rocks” bottom line there both killer bands and unfortunately pantera will never be again but this isn’t the site to post you personal preferences
    #3 Down is hands down my favorite band iv listen to then ever since NOLA in 95 im also an avid fan of all the bands other work CoC, crow bar, eyehategod, ect
    ne way..........
    I find Phil to be very direct with his righting style and if there’s a message in the song 99% of the time its right in front of you. This song is of cores about a “swan song” witch if you don’t know is what a sawn dos right before it die, it sing a beautiful song and drops dead. witch rely is what NOLA is about, and most of Down II suicide, you can find reference to it in most every song , this is just a perfect example of it. ne question, comments, or just hate mail.
