"Maniacal" as written by Nowell Rhys Fulber and Wilhelm Anton Leeb....
We're gonna drop this song
Cause you don't belong
You don't fit the mold
So you've been told
You need to play our game
And just act the same
Cause we won't tolerate
Any other trait
Bang! I am maniacal
Bang! so defiable
Obliverate dominate
Self destruct and activate
Bang! I am political
Bang! so unequivable
The name of the game is to win all the way

Pinned down
To your chemical cross
Of hopeless faith
What a day what a loss
No one left
To tell this tale
Of all of us
Life for sale

The clouds start to rise
There is no surprise
We all start to burn
When will we learn
Who we are to be
Watch the enemy
In you sights you see
When will we be

Bang! I am maniacal
Bang! So defiable
Obliverate dominate self-destruct and activate
Bang! I am political
Bang! So unequivocal
The name of the game is to win all the way

Pinned down
To your chemical cross
Of hopeless faith
What a day what a loss
No one left
To tell this tale
Of all of us
Life for sale

No one left
To tell this tale
Of all of us
Life for sale

Bang! I am maniacal
Bang! So defiable
Obliverate dominate self destruct and activate
Bang! I am political
Bang! So unequivocal
The name of the game is to win all the way

Pinned down
To your chemical cross
Of hopeless faith
What a day what a loss
No one left
To tell this tale
Of all of us
Life for sale

    General CommentThis is by far one of Front Line Assembly's best albums-and one of their greatest songs too. (the album is Civilization) When I first heard this track I thought of the Holocaust and World War 2. Adolph Hitler was addicted to a number of drugs "..pinned down to your chemical cross..." But the lyrics also tell the story of human civilization's repetitive mistakes. Wars seems inevitable because new generations forget history and allow the same mistakes to happen again. An economic depression is usually the prelude to a World War. With the declining state of the world economy right now we could be heading for World War 3, like Nostradamus predicted. A third world war would definetely involve nuclear weapons, because someone is crazy enough not to care about the consequences. "the clouds start to rise--there is no surprise--we all start to burn--when will we learn?" Like a lot of artists and musicians, Front Line Assembly has expressed an honest sense of despondency with human life.
