"Suicide Messiah" as written by and Zachary P Wylde....
Crawl through the things that eat your flesh
Drown in my waters that know you best
Step inside I've been waiting here for you

Underneath where you shall crawl
Fly so high you'll never fall
Step inside we've been waiting here for you

Bow down you chose your maker
He never gives he's always the taker
The electric burns that fuel the fire
It's just your suicide messiah
Oh yeah
Oh yeah

Bow down you chose your maker
He never gives he's always the taker
The electric burns that fuel the fire
It's just your suicide messiah

Walk through the streets that know your name
All that's pure is now insane
Step inside I've been waiting here for you

Another trip another lie
Life's hand of doom you're feeling fine
Step inside we've been waiting here for you

Bow down you chose your maker
He never gives he's always the taker
The electric burns that fuel the fire
It's just your suicide messiah
Oh yeah
Oh yeah

Bow down you chose your maker
He never gives he's always the taker
The electric burns that fuel the fire
It's just your suicide messiah

Oh yeah
Oh yeah

Bow down you chose your maker
He never gives he's always the taker
Bow down you chose your maker
He never gives he's always the taker

The electric burns that fuel the fire

    General Commentmisfitdreamer is right. heres form an interview i just read.

    Now, what exactly is "Suicide Messiah” about?

    I actually wrote that song about Scott Weiland. A buddy of mine who is one of my best friends is like the Captain Shield of Black Label. He is a NYPD Narcotics detective and ended up busting Scott. You know in certain parts of town, you know if you are down there, ya know what is going on, and he said dude this is Scott. I love Scott, he is amazing. He is like Dude, I got a problem, and I gotta stop. So that inspired me to write "Bow Down, You Chose Your Maker, He Never Gives, He is always a taker, he is the Suicide Messiah." Everyone I have ever know, I have never done that stuff in my life, always winds up dead or broke from doing that crap.

    that interview can be found here: glam-metal.com/…

    General Commentthis song i beleave has two meanings the first about drugs and zakks friend i cant deni that considering he said that in the interview but the second meaning i think is about politics and about bush and the iraq war. He is saying bush is basicly bringing his career down with the war. when it says hes just your suicide messiah it means he is sending you to war for no reason. and the people that have been waiting here for you is the army thats what i think i hope it makes seince lol
