Goodybe, they breathe but cannot scream
They have no tools to build voices
They wait in fetal position
Martyrs on altars of mistakes
The martyr
They have not the tools to scream
They are just the ones upon altars of mistake
There is no safe place
The martyr

    General Commentyep i think you are right. thats a pretty good message to put into a song. yeah i believe it was that he saw a video of an abortion and the fetus was going to get its arm cut off, and it seemed like it was screaming in pain and no one was there to help it... how depressing:(

    General CommentThat is the meaning of the song that I have heard as well. Dan's lyrics are so hard hitting in this song. It is good to have a strong Pro-Life band in mainstream hardcore.

    General Commentthe video Dan watched is actually a pretty famous video, the fetus gets its arm sliced off and then the doctor moves around some more to kill it and the face turns toward the camera and looks like it's screaming... good lyrics, great message...

    General CommentThere was this thing on T.V. that my one youth leader was telling our group about. It was a new form of abortion. I'm not sure if it was legal or not, but they did a documentary on it. The pregnant woman would go through with her labor and after she gave birth the nurses would take the child from her and place him/her in a separate room where it dies of just being left alone without immediate care. The last heard of they had this little room called a "comfort room" where after child birth the mother would be able to get foot prints, get the baby weighed and measured then sit on a rocking chair and "rock the baby to death." This is absolutley horribly ...words cannot express the monstrosity level of grotesqueness that is abortion. Pray to end abortion! BE THEIR VOICE!

    General Commenti think it's a pretty unique idea to use the term martyrs to describe abortion victims. also, the "comfort room" story is true. a friend of mine's mother worked with the woman who went public on this to the media. it's horrible, and so far i don't know that anything has been done about it

    General CommentThat's pretty messed up...a friend of mine did a paper on abortion once...apparently one way they do it is by inserting a syringe (spell check?) into the fetus' head and the use it to literally suck out the bran until it's head collapses and it's so horrible.

    General CommentI got to talk to the singer of Dead Poetic, man he is such a great guy, it was just 3 weeks ago on zao's last show, so they started playing this song, and he just starts getting so excited, this is his favorite song, and he told me everything about it...

    General Commentyeah its about the evils of abortion, Dan saw a video on it, and the doctor came in with the scalpel and just sliced the babys arm off, and cut it apart piece by piece, just so they could dispose of it easier. and the baby had its mouth open , screaming silently with no one to help. i read another article on a different abortion that this lady wrote who had an abortion, they put a vaccum inside of her and sucked the baby out, and it pulled the baby apart, and the baby is feeling everything that is going on. then later the woman who had an abortion was getting dressed and she saw a trashcan, looked inside and saw the baby's remains. nice toknow it was properly disposed, by throwing its body parts in an ordinary trashcan. those doctors need to be locked in a dark room and forced to listen to tool to scream over and over again (with lyrics of course) until they like it. they do abortions many different ways, sometimes just smotherin the baby after it was born. all of it is sick.

    General Commentthat is sick. that is just plain sick. that is inhuman, when i read all that i just felt disgusted. i don't usually get that emotional about medicine no matter how cruel or weird but this is just DISGUSTING. i agree with zaosk8er except they should have that slowly done to them, then be reborn over and over for eternity to feel the pain of what they've done, stealing lives not yet begun, without a reason beyond money.
