"U Boat" as written by and Sergio/karloff Pizzorno....
John was a scientist, he was hooked on LSD
Interested in mind control and how the monkey held the key
Said that all life is experiments somebody's planning for the heir
It's for the unexpected citizens who hallucinate in fear.
Sing that.

Chew the backbone,
A solar system, these clever convicts

In union station, with a package in his hand
Tied to the suspect, he chanced him where he stand
And I don't think you realize he's coming for your neck
And the sound is breaking all around
He's keeping lives in check

Chew the backbone,
A solar system, these clever convicts

Making his getaway threw a punched out mirror
He blend into the crowd, hear the system scream
And all those spies that strikes your head
Are clinging to their guns
And if you smell those OMENS man, I think you better run.

Checkout

Chew the backbone, a solar system, these clever convicts.
Chew the backbone, a solar system, these clever convicts.
Chew the backbone, a solar system, these clever convicts.

    General CommentThis song is about war, mainly from a soldier's point of view.
    The "international version" of this CD doesn't have the long ending, which kinda sucks.

    General Commentfor example:
    1. the first four lines address some Russian's view on the cold war today
    2. the next three lines address how Russia stands with what it considers it's allies and at the same time sells weapons to unknown people from other countries who it considers "strangers" (if you ever notice the Taliban and other groups are often using weapons with Russian names)
    3.the next two lines could be addressing the way the Russian government considers other third-world countries to be in fear of them, even though the governemnt isn't very talkative about them
    4. the next three lines address Russia's geographical situation in which world power's forces need to "creep by" Russia so that they aren't criticized by the Russian government for border violations
    5."Still don't let me sin" is an idealogy that Russia can survive as a huge country without falling apart and doing the wrong thing morally

    i've obtained these conclusions through tons of research

    General CommentAfter watching them at hyde park last night... the bloke singing this song (sorry, name i cant remember) said that this song was about "love, family, friends and all that stuff". So i personally think this song has a mixture of different meanings, and it is simply up to us how we want to interprit it, for everyone has different views and opinions...

    General CommentI think it's about a rift forming in his revolutionary group (I don't want to go so far as calling them "Terrorists").
