"You've Got To Belong To It" as written by and Vincent Paul/abbott Abbott....
Build an inner door, drop and then explore
You smoke your head on straight, then drink
Your woes away
Some might not understand possession that's beyond your head

You recognize it, while some ignore it
Avoid the masses, you got to belong to it

So the music is your friend
Well it's the roof above my head
So seriously I take the will that never breaks
Some might not understand, the possession that controls your hands

You recognize it, while some ignore it
Avoid the masses, you got to belong to it

You recognize it, while some ignore it
Avoid the masses, you got to belong to it

It's power and sin
And then you've got whisky and smoke
And it's all a man could need, to plant the perfect seed
To disembody me
Making more like you and me

You recognize it, while some ignore it
Avoid the masses, you got to belong to it

    General CommentOnly one comment? wow

    This song is no bullshit - Hes singing about metal, and that its like being in a select group "youve got to belong to it" and about drinking smoking an playing metal.

    General CommentIt means phil is the MAN, he doesn't beat around the bush, and he goes 'BUILD AN INNER DOOOOOOR, DROP AND THEN EXPLOREEEE' damn this song rocks me so hard in the left pupil! This album is miles above a lot of things, dunno why it's overlooked by so many Pantera fans!!!?!

(damn I'm good)
