The crushing pressure weighing down upon my weary back,
The tedious routines of day to day poise to attack.
The poisonous pollution and the pointlessness of care,
And in a blink we blow away to dust upon the air.

Six feet down and underground.
Six feet down and underground.
Six feet down and underground.
Six feet down and underground.

A clotted cold perfection still in putrefaction lay,
We'll run and rot to crumble in a petrified decay.

And in as much, as I can see no future, why go on?
So this here I present to you, one final poem in song.
And I can see a darkness and a clearing of the path
In the overpopulation I can simplify the math.

Six feet down and underground.
Six feet down and underground.
Six feet down and underground.
Six feet down and underground.

A clotted cold perfection still in putrefaction lay,
We'll run and rot to crumble in a petrified decay.
The hazy warmth encompasses my eyes, a misty sea,
The soft embrace of sunset in a dark eternity.

Prayer and flowers mock and tease my terrorised beliefs,
The truth is that we're born to die until our sweet release.
I care so much and not at all about every living breath,
The sadness of this sentience; a sentence to my death.

In my grave and down the drain; erase the misspent past,
The tortured love in memories are never meant to last.

    General CommentLets start with the name of hte song. Via Sin Dios...Life/live without God.

    Its basically another anti-God diatribe. Good song, but the topic's been used before. And if i have to hear another "we're born to die" line from the LOC boys, i may go crazy.

    General CommentI asked my spanish what the title means, she said it was improper spanish meaning "Living without gods".
    Another LoC song about not only accepting death, but infact embracing it because it will relieve all the pain that life causes. After you die you just rot 6 feet down, there is no afterlife.

    General CommentI'm not entirely sure on the last line.

    "The tortured love in memories are never meant to last."

    It also sounds like "the torture, love, and memories are never meant to last" or "the tortured love and memories are never meant to last"

    General CommentThis song is pretty easy to understand. Life is pointless. There, that's it. Granted, I love the imagery and detail LoC uses to show this. It basically is saying that there is no initial meaning to life, and that this existence that we all lead is sad and painful, but true in that we should accept it as nothing more than that. How this song correlates to the title is that people who think that there is a god who will save you after you die are incompetent and ignorant and should accept that once you die you rot in the ground. Life is as simple as that. No god, no meaning , nor purpose, so make your own meaning and purpose. I think the last line, which does cause some confusion, is saying that there is no afterlife in which you have to remain in existence after living a painful life, and that there is no afterlife. Very truthful song.
