We’ve come so far, and here we are,
Amidst the endless hum,
No wind worth chasing, no revolution,
No blazing battle drum,
We laughed as we said, “the music is dead”,
We’ve plucked out its eyes, we’ve shattered its head,
My work is so weary so let it be said “Father, thy will be done.”

Instruments make the best noise when they’re breaking,
People make the best smiles when they’re faking,
Notes are shattered, blood is spattered,
The night is ours for the taking,
And what shall we say now that its gone?
In ours eyes are no tears, in our hearts are no songs,
Now we’ve gone pale, what was it we saw?
The beauty, the horror...
Of rock that is so raw

    General CommentThat is my favorite part of this song as well.

    I think this song is just about how music is coming to a close. It's not what it once was. Also, we killed music. This song goes along well with Stabbing Art to Death

    General CommentI Think It's About When People Get Too Wrapped Up In Other Things, We Forget Music And It Destroys Itself. It Seems Like A Post-War Look At Music.

    Played This Song On Drums For A Competition. It Was Pretty Sweet.

    General Commenti think they're saying how all good music is dead and now the closest we get is the reincarnate of good music: Raw Rock
