"Body Hammer" as written by Burton C. Bell, Dino A.m. Cazares, Raymond Herrera and Christian Olde Wolbers....
I clench my teeth and realize
My world is so near its demise
A dying sun in a poisonous sky
Stinging my eyes
Burning with contempt and conflict

As of now
I am a tool
Of severe impact

I clench my fist and visualize
The blood that is spilled is our own
I open wide my bloodshot eyes
Count the dead
A result of dysfunction

As of now
I am a tool
Of severe impact
Hammer down
Cause and effect
And create a new world

Pound, drive, swing, strike
Break down, smash down
Pound and drive, swing and strike
Break it down
I am a tool

As of now
I am a tool
Of severe impact
Hammer down
Cause and effect
And create a new world

I am a tool
I am a tool to break down
Break it down and smash it all away

    My InterpretationThe song is loosely based on the Tetsuo series of body-horror films by Japanese director Shinya Tsukamoto, specifically Tetsuo 2: Body Hammer. The premise of the movie is that the protaginist's body starts transforming into a mass of scrap metal after falling into a fit of rage because of his son's murder and subsequently seeking vengeance against those who were responsible for it.

    General CommentIts about the breaking point of a human being where they stop being a human being, because of their anger they are now a tool, ready to crush.

    General CommentFF's songs usually have two meanings, the story part (as a concept album) and the deeper part. "Body Hammer" probably got the latter.

    More directly anyway, it probably has something to do with some character's anger serving as a tool in some way for some machine related entity.

    General Commenti think it' all about betrayal of society around us. a lot of people can happily go through so much bs in life and still be ok with it all. but maybe someone such as the "man" in the song just cant take the narrowminded-ness and bs of life anymore because he realises it is all a bunch of lies, ways to make money, no one really cares about anything and he thought it was all a good world when it really isnt...

    you as a listener must have at some point in life felt so mad that you daydream of going on a killing spree against the people in the world you hate the most, smashing their face in, destroying them over and over and feeling extremely powerful crushing everything... this is pretty much the song. a man gone absolutely insane, mega pissed off, and wants to burn everything.
