"Unsung" as written by and Al/barker Jourgensen....
Where have all the heroes gone?
Returning where they're from
Did they touch God or did they touch the sun?

Preparation day
Fearless desire
Some will lose by living
Chosen suicide

Did they touch God or did they touch the sun?

Preparation day
Selfless act of giving
Many pay the price
Heroes suicide
Unsung

The world we recognize has just begun
Some die from living
So unsung

Preparation day
Fearless desire
Some will lose by living
Chosen suicide

Some die from living
So unsung

Preparation day
Selfless act of giving
Many pay the price
Heroes suicide

Unsung
Unsung
Unsung
Unsung

    General CommentIt looks like this song follows the stream of other Ministry's works which deal with political-driven subjects. In particular, this one goes along the line of "Hero": a critical approach at the effort invested in the training of soldiers and/or elite forces. The odds are that these people will eventually die because of their own behaivour: chosen suicide.

    It could also be about suicidal attacks from fanatic religious guerrilla. Hence the verse "Did they touch God or did they touch the sun?".

    General CommentI think the song is about soldiers who commit suicide because of shell shock or other various post-war traumas they can't deal with.

    Easily the best song off of Animositisomina; gotta love the verse vocal melody.
