"Revolution Is My Name" as written by Vincent Paul Abbott, Darrell Lance Abbott, Rex Brown and Philip Anselmo....
68' I was into the world, born
And the seventies were a breath after the war (Vietnam)
Life was confusing because of my age
Should my eyes open for tomorrows gains
I can't help the way I am
There's no trust and there's no end
What is my name

It's time for a change
It can't stay the same
Forever is my name

From now on I can't look the other way
But keep in mind, and listen to what I say
Take underwing all the ones who are lost
And build up around them an infinite wall
Don't you know just who I am
Take the hand of the wisdoms friend
What is my name

It's time for a change
It can't stay the same
Forever is my name

It will never change
So here it stays
Revolution is my name
It's time to change, It can't stay the same
Forever is my name
What is my name, Forever
What is my name, Revolution

It's time for a change
It can't stay the same
Forever is my name

    General Commenti think phils talking about his life and saying that hes awesome because he worked to get where he is and that no one has the right to take it away from him, and that if you dont like him, fuck you

    General Commentthis one is really hard to interpret, but i think Cooljgb's interpretation makes pretty good sense. especiallly the "if you dont like him, fuck you" part, cuz phil is tha baddest muthafucker alive.

    General CommentI think this song is about the will to be like you want to be, refusing to change just because time keeps passing and people says you should change yourself. A "fuck you" to people who want Phil to change.
