"Blood, Milk And Sky" as written by and Rob Wolfgang/reynolds Zombie....
The siren sings a lonely song
Of all the wants and hungers
The lust of love a brute desire
The ledge of life goes under

Divide the dream into the flesh
Kaleidoscope and candle eyes
Empty winds scrape on the soul
But never stop to realize

Animal whisperings
Intoxicate the night
Hypnotize the desperate
Slow motion light

Wash away into the rain
Blood, milk and sky
Hollow moons illuminate
And beauty never dies

Running wild, running blind
In the body deep
A thousand years beside myself
I do not sleep

Seduce the world at rest
Dead water lies
Ride the only one who knows
Beauty never dies

    General CommentThis is a very powerful song, if you haven't heard it, download it (it has to be the Astrocreep 2000 version though) Trust me, you'll love this song.

    General Commentmarinbryce2: The United States is _hardly_ the only nation to have red/white/blue as its colours. Ever hear of the United Kingdom? France? 'Duuuh' yourself, twit.

    Thanks to those who did their research, rather than just applying knee-jerk ethnocentrism.

    General CommentUrh...another interpretation into "love", I swear...lol..

    Blood Milk and Sky is a mystic ritual performed by the Masai/Wasai tribes of Africa in which they drink the blood from a cow ... truthfully, that's all I know about that ceremony.
    But I am sure this has to do with passing down the strengths and spirits of ancestors again and again, with the animalism often associated with such ceremonies and possibly alot more to do with that than something about "love".

    It's even in the very music itself, the various instruments used.

    General CommentRob is making references to the Sirens in The Odyssey. The Sirens are very beautiful mysterious women who stay on an island and sing. Their voices are heard by any passing ships. They are lured into the beauty of there voices. hence

    Hypnotize the desperate

    Once lured in they meet there demise and are killed. These Sirens show no signs of aging. Their beauty is everlasting they sing for eternity luring in the weak minded.

    I do not sleep - Seduce
    The world it never
    Screams Dead water lies
    Ride the only one who
    Knows - Beauty never dies

    I’m guessing all the “ohhhhh ahhhhhhh” ‘s in the song are the Sirens. Very hypnotic song. One of my favorites from White Zombie.

    General CommentIve often wondered what this song really means...actually alot of Zombie's lyrics. I know they have a deeper meaning than the exterior and take alot of thought. He is such an amazing songwriter, one of the most overlooked i believe.

    There are alot of interesting comments here.

    General CommentThis is just one more example of an amazingly cinematic song... definitely the best end-cap to an album ever devised (if you don't count the hidden track), and an amazing fusion of world and metal
