Can you say what you can't do
In darkness of the eyes
The wrecking voice stain mirror
Awaiting the first sixpounder

I'm gonna show you battle
That's how the pain really is
A little piss to free you down
Like a spark resist you
Pounder!

War!
I refuse to be brought down by you
Praise is far away from what you do
Not only are you cranking up my brain
I'm meant to blow you away...666 (...pounder)

Hey, what you said, that darkest time
I try to live all right
Little bits away for you
That you try to persuade me by

Louder sixpounder!

Can you say what you can't do?
In darkness of the eyes
A little piss, to free you down
Like a spark resist you
Pounder!

War!
War!
I refuse to be brought down by you
Praise is far away from what you do
Not only are you cranking up my brain
I'm meant to blow you away...666

    General CommentWell, I personally hear him saying "louder sixpounder". But considering this song is about the sixpounder cannons, which was the main cannon used by americans and british in the 1800's, "Load the Sixpounder" would make more sense. Either way, its not about abuse, despite the music video.

    General CommentCannon references:
    "Awaiting the first Sixpounder"
    "I'm gonna show you battle"
    "Like a spark resist you Pounder!"
    "War!"
    "I'm meant to blow you way"
    "Load the Sixpounder" or "Louder Sixpounder"

    You could link the cannon as a metaphor for abuse, but I honestly think that's stretching it. This isn't In Flames, it's Bodom. All the cannon talk is about cannons, I'm sure of it.

    General CommentCan you say what you can do?
    Eternity of the eyes
    The breaking point's getting nearer
    The warring has just begun

    Well, let me show you a battle
    We're from the path of hate
    Whatever it takes to bring you down
    Light the spark, this is our countdown
    War

    I refuse to be brought down by you
    Praise is far away from what you do
    Not only are you cranking on my reign
    I'm made to blow you away
    666...(pounder)

    (Hey)
    Wanna sleep another time?
    A time we'll never end
    It'll be too late for you
    Once you try to persuade me mercy

    Load the sixpounder

    Can you say what you can do?
    Eternity of the eyes
    Whatever it takes to bring you down
    Light the spark, this is our countdown
    War
    War

    I refuse to be brought down by you
    Praise is far away from what you do
    Not only are you cranking on my wreign
    I'm made to blow you away
    666
