"Strength Beyond Strength" as written by and Vincent Paul/abbott Abbott....
There is nothing. No education. No family life to open my
Arms to. You'd say that my job is today, yet gone tomorrow.
I'll be broke in a gutter.
I know the opinion. A broken record. Fuck you and your
College dream. Fact is, we're stronger than all.
You're working for perfect bodies, perfect minds and perfect
Neighbors. But I'm helping to legalize dope on
Your pristine streets and I'm making a fortune.
You're muscle and gall. Naive at best. I'm bone, brain and
Cock. Deep down stronger than all.

A sad state of affairs. A crippled America. A pipe dream
Buttfucked. Immune. Stronger than all.

A lament for a rookie officer, punk ass weak little lamb.
For the mob, truly, does rule at this particular time.

We've grown into a monster. An arrogant, explosive motherfuck.
Hard as a rock. Shut like a lock.
Finally, the president in submission. He holds out his hand on
Your television and draws back a stump. It's too late for some.

Far too late.

No more holdbacks. No more paying a cops paycheck. Let him
Bust his own child. The son that heeds my word and smokes my dope.
The daughter that sucks me off and snorts cheap anything.

Hail Kings. The new Kings. Stronger than all.

A simple process to legalize. There would not be a choice but to
Take our side. Be there no question of certain strengths. Know
This intention. Forever stronger than all.

    My InterpretationI think that if anything, Phil is speaking out against the legalization of drugs. Notice how at the end of the song he states that you will have no choice but to legalize, due to the fact that the influence of the drug pushers will be so pervasive that they will have succeeded in legitimizing the whole lifestyle.

    General CommentI can't believe there aren't more posts for this band. They fucking rule. This song is about drug dealing, mutilation, being anti-establishment. Everything metal's about with heavy guitar and choking screams to back it up.

    General CommentI tottaly agree with you, man. There is definately not enough Pantera posts on this site. Pantera is the best metal band ever and they deserve more attention. It's too bad this site is dominated by that shit that people call "emo rock" such as Dashboard fucking Confessional. Ugh. I can't believe people like that shit.
