"Moment Of Impact" as written by Burton C. Bell, Raymond Herrera and Christian Olde Wolbers....
Falling from the sky and I have lost all track of time
Every image of my life flashes before my eyes
Floating deep precise time of eye of my demise
My said prayers of circumstance
Have recently expired

I pray in spite
My soul my life

Straining every muscle for my contact with fate
I could never dream my life would end this way
Cross my heart and hope to die
Fade to the black
Brace myself the time is now
The moment of impact

I pray in spite
My soul my life

My cross (I pray)
Will Hide (in spite)
I pray (my cross)
In spite
My fears of impending doom that I'm about to die

Brace for the shock
The trauma
Brace myself for the impact
Brace for the shock
The trauma
Brace myself for the impact

I can hardly breathe
I can hardly breathe
Cause I am choking on this deadly scream

Brace for the shock
The trauma
Brace myself for the impact

    Song MeaningAnother awesome song by Fear Factory! It describes the idea of coming face to face with a situation where you know you could die, or, if you believe, know this could be the moment you live for the first time. As always with Fear Factory, this song touchs base with personal and religous notions of belief vs. disbelief and fear vs. preserverence in times of uncertainty.

    This song is very powerfull in the sense that its meaning is very clear and that meaning is that one who believes can still doubt and one who doubts can still believe. The hope and fight inside of us to make it out alive during the "Moment Of Impact". The choice to live or die in that moment is ours. Thats what I believe personally. Very Powerfull!

    Makes a great workout song!

    General CommentWhat i read somewhere is its about simulating being in a crashing plane(sadly) or a crashing car (as shown in the video) so yeah its basically about dieing. Im surprised this album wasnt also considered death metal for songs like this lol.

    General CommentWell... I hope it means something else, but it seems like its about dying and thats the end of it. No afterlife. All beliefs of religion, haven, hell, or whatever are nothing and you just "fade to the black." Lines like The shock, the trauma, pray in spite.....etc kind of explain it a little. I'm probably wrong but thats what came to mind after listening.

    Either that or its just about getting your ass kicked by something or someone. lol.
