"Shattered" as written by and Vincent Paul/abbott Abbott....
It's storming broken glass, corpses left in piles
Ungracious bludgeonment that breaks the earth for miles
Nothing can stop it, the day has come, from below it's catastrophic

Freezing, there's no healing
Families are dying
This world is shattered
All shattered

Life crushing turbulence,
This wrath can't be denied
Wishing you could help your friends,
Standing where they died
Echoes haunting, a hollow planet, lacerations,
Dissected nation

Freezing, there's no healing
Everyone is dying
This world is shattered
All shattered

Freezing, there's no healing
Everyone is dying
This world is shattered
All shattered
All shattered
All shattered

    General CommentI think it's just about fictional destruction, apocalypse, not any metaphor or real war.
    Gotta love the solo, though, it's amazing.

    General CommentThis song means pantera has just overcome the hair metal stage, and are putting it behind them. Notice the hair metal riffs, and high pitched screaming. still a good song though.

    General CommentIs it just me or does this song (shattered) kind of sound like "Through the Never" by Metallica?

    General CommentSomething to do with war or terrorist attacks. "There's no healing, everyone's dying" kinda gives me the impression that it's written about some sort of devastation.

    General Commentyep, Phil's singing in this song is a lot like Rob Halford's singing. probably 'cause Judas Priest is one of his biggest influences.
