"The Fall" as written by Michael Bruce Balch and Allen Jourgenson....
Take this invitation
Bishop's Queen to Pawn
All of us were taken
All that was, is gone
Of this information
Shames us, one and all
Where's my compensation
Watching others fall
Welcome to the fall

Everything is useless
Nothing works at all
Nothing ever matters
Welcome to the fall

    General Commentwow...no ones posted anything here!?! i fuckin love this song ..well..its on filth pig..a c.d. based around george bush sr....but it was written by ogre of skinny puppy if im not mistaken...so i dunno if it really has to do with bush sr...my guess is that it does..and that the lyrics arent about the season the fall but more of a downfall..like a nation going down the shitter

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite Minstry songs, the live version(s) are really good to. I think it's some kind of dystopic view on the (western) world. When I listen to this song I get this apocalyptic feeling I do with some songs.

    The power has shifted from the will of the people to the will of money and power (Everything is useless/Nothing works at all/Nothing ever matters), we're flooded with information so we won't be able pick up on the important bits, we're selfish (Where's my compensation?) and don't really care what happens to (most) other people (Watching others fall).

    My 2 cents

    General CommentThis song is really atmospheric. When the keyboard comes in it really blows me away :)

    General CommentIt's about nihilism, Quote:

    “I praise, I do not reproach, [nihilism's] arrival. I believe it is one of the greatest crises, a moment of the deepest self-reflection of humanity. Whether man recovers from it, whether he becomes master of this crisis, is a question of his strength.” - friedrich nietzsche
