Here we are
In a world of corruption
Human nature is
Of violent breed
Who cares if there's no tomorrow
When I die for my future's
Laid out for me
Can't you see?
Rise, above the lies
Morals on a backwards globe
A sin to you
For me it's hope.

It's my life and provision
Black or white
Some pay to pray
You question why they
Act this way
It's their fucking decision

No more judgment day
Only tranquility
Peace signs, protest lines
Mean nothing to me

Honesty, born in me
Heresy

I know what's right or wrong
And my belief is stronger
Than your advice
People, they go to war
Because religion gives them
Reason to fight, sacrifice
Sacrifice, die for pride

A group that caters
No one's fees
Or synthetic deities
Is where I belong
My stand is the human race
Without a label or a face
So they can lick my sack

No more judgment day
Only tranquility
Peace signs, protest lines
Mean nothing to me

Honesty, born in me
Heresy

Honesty, born in me
Heresy

    General Comment:I think this song is about the affirmation of human dignity , ethics and unity over any ideology, religion, etc. that would seek to compromise human welfare.

    General Comment:No way!!! Pantera = Metal genius' with the best fucking riffs known to man, System of a Down = gay nu metal outfit with a lunatic on vocals. There is no way Dime would need to take a page out of that whiny voiced cunt from SOAD's book when trying to write a riff.

    Anyways, the song is about Phil's views on racism. In his mind, it only causes a ton of problems and isn't worh the hassle.

    General Comment:the beginning sounds like something that System of a down wishes they could write. the beginning is awesome, aswell is the rest of the song. to me, system of a down is what happens when you give a group of special Ed kids some instruments, and a pound of coke.
