"War Nerve" as written by and Vincent Paul/anselmo Abbott....
Truly, fuck the world, for all it's worth, every inch of Planet
Earth, fuck myself, don't leave me out, but don't get
involved, don't corner me
Inside, ulcer, unjust bastards, file out face first
Meet the lies and see what you are

It's forcing you down, and it's grinding against you
Let the war nerve break

For every fucking second the pathetic media pisses on me and
judges what I am in one paragraph - Look here - Fuck you all

Expect the worse, you bleeding heart, but kill me first
before it starts, yes my cock is getting hard, we are
born different after all
Invite mayhem, produce weapons, shoot out, burn down
No CNN or media now

It's forcing you down, and it's grinding against you
Let the war nerve break

For every fucking second the pathetic media pisses on me and
judges what I am in one paragraph - Look here - Fuck you all

All the money in the fucking world couldn't
buy me one second of trust or one ounce of faith in anything you're about
Fuck you all

Nothing is worth the sleep that I've lost
Apologies unacceptable now
A blistered revenge awaits in me
This is fucking loveless
Hate
Hate mail is not read, in jail instead
Hate
The Lord knows, there's worse
Ignore, this curse
Hate

    General CommentGreat song... but it isn't only about "fuck the world", its main target seems to be the media...
    "For every fucking second the pathetic media pisses on me and judges what I am in one paragraph - Look here - Fuck you all"
    Remember Phil never liked the media. I remember when Dime passed away, he said that it was the media who truly ended Pantera...

    General CommentThis song is fucking brilliant, and full of hate.
    To me it seems like Phil is saying a big fuck you to the media and everyone who judges him.
    I think War Nerve is a nickname for for the part of your brain that gives in to anger, "its grinding against you" i think that means its pissing you off and "let the war nerve break" means letting all your anger loose.

    Could be wrong but thats what it sounds like.

    LONG LIVE DIME!
