"Scar Spangled Banner" as written by and Gary Holt....
Oh say can you fucking see
The missiles fall like rain
Bloody mountains majesty
Dead bodies on the plain
By the bombing's eerie light
See the crimsons waves of red
What so proudly they all fell
The twilight of the dead

[Chorus]
America the violent
The indifferent
God shit is grace on me
America the arrogant
The belligerent
Will live in infamy
We the people, for no people
Secure the blessings of tragedy
Do or don't we have established
The scar spangled banner

We pledge allegiance to no god
Only to the blood
Liberty is just a dream
When dying in the mud
This, the land of the deceived, home of the depraved
Bombs, they drop like falling leaves
And the deadly flag still waves

[Chorus]

Red the beautiful color of blood
Flowing like a stream
White the color of bleaching bone
Lovely and obscene
Blue the bruising color of flesh
Battered, ripped and torn
The colors of the flag of hate
Of violence and porn
What you see is what you get
You haven't see the bloody trail yet
I'm no patriot, just a hate-triot

Blood sport, my sure bet
See the flag, get a body bag
Salvation form a .44 mag.
Nothing left, no one saved
'Cause our goddamn motherfucking bloody ass
Banner still waves

    General CommentMan o man, The Tempo of the Damned is a kick-ass Exodus cd. Every song on that cd rules completely. The Scar Spangled Banner song in my opinion, describes how the U.S fuckin A handles things during war. No reason to be destructive to others, an anti-war song pretty much. Rock on!!!

    General Commenti agree that the new album is great, but is it me or does exodus write some of those most ridiculously fucking stupidest lyrics?

    'I'm no patriot, just a hate-triot '

    i mean, what the fuck is that?

    the new album is some great thrashing though.

    General CommentOh say can you fucking see.
    I love that.
    An anthem against America - we cant all be PATRIOTS, you know. America is idealized in the song but in a way opposing the tendencies of our culture. It says alot to the militant patriots who demand loyalty. However, loyalty is EARNED. and the song says it well.

    General Commentlol, exodus does have pretty dumb lyrics 99% of the time. Always mindless lyrics about war and violence.
