"Purified" as written by David Randall Blythe, Mark Morton, Will Adler, John Campbell and Chris Adler....
Can the pestilence within you be bled out
May I have the honor of this amputation?
Know that you have made an enemy
To show you the meaning of indignity
I live no solely for the pleasure of your slow decay.

Feel the pain of vengeance burn you,
Soon you shall know silence.
With trembling hands you'll beg for mercy.
I'll show you none.

Purified by my hand
In this my world
It is salvation.
Your futile existence draws to a close
A cloak of lies drops.
The lies drop

    General CommentI think he is talking about someone that is a huge lier and doesnt know what its like when he doest get what he wants. "Soon you shall know silence" Ppl wont give what you want. silence. oh wait he is talking about bush. after all he got his war by lieing. but heres what i dont get. we all know that randy isnt christian. but the word salvation means deliverence from sin through jesus christ. and randy puts it like this "In this my world
    It is salvation." Any idea what this brilliant man means by that?

    General CommentPerhaps he's just using salvation as a general term for being saved. Salvation has two aspects; the religiouas side and the general side, the general side just means:
    Preservation or deliverance from destruction, difficulty, or evil.

    General Commentrandy is prolly talking about someone who has done him very wrong, maybe a former female or even his father...maybe Bush since he hates him so much but its for sure revenge on someone...

    General CommentThis is a pure rage song. It's all about someone who bugs him and he hates who he wishes to murder. It's not that deep of a song the lyrics are just delivered poeticly...It's not that hard to figure out...

    General Comment"I live know solely for the pleasure of your slow decay (btw)"

    I think it's actually "I live NOW soleley for the pleasure of your slow decay". Makes more sense. I think. Kick ass guitar riffs in this one.

    General CommentIts blatantly about a UN "peacekeeper" raping an AIDs or HIV infected African woman, and getting the virus.
    The "enemy" is the virus, and the prsonifcation of the virus is the singer of the song, saying that it was put here for a purpose. eventually, the man has to ive up to what he's done and admit he raped the woman, causing the "clock of lies" to drpo.

    General CommentGreat song, pretty much like all Lamb of God songs. When it comes down to it, the only meaning lyrics really have depends on how the listener interprets them. Due to the current uproar in Egypt and other middle eastern countries, I tend to interpret this in the first person as a group together as one, in the word 'I', rather than just one individual. And their message is directed to a despot tyrant that is about to be rescinded by the people.

    Governments should operate to serve and protect the people. If they fail at this they should be abolished and reconstructed.
