"Consfearacy" as written by Tomas Enrique Araya, Kerry King, Jeffery John Hanneman and Dave Lombardo....
I need no redefine
All the things I hate today
Politics that fail
From a president derailed
I hate the shit economy
I might as well be sodomy
I know that in the end
I'm expected to pretend

But I can't relate
To your verbal idiocy
No one's in control
When the government's the enemy

So light the fuse
Impose your views
Consfearacy
Is anarchy

Actions of hostility
Breeds conformity
Annihilation will begin
Extermination from within

So light the fuse
Impose your views
Consfearacy
Insanity

I need no redefine
How I see the world today
Seems that all the war
Didn't even up the score
It's only mind pollution
There is no resolution
Still I know that in the end
I'm expected to pretend
That I can't think for myself
Blame it all on someone else
Half-hearted smile
While you look the other way
I can't relate
To your verbal idiocy
No one's in control
When the government's the enemy

So light the fuse
Impose your views
Consfearacy
Complacency
Is your demise

    General CommentI think it's pretty obvious. It's about how our (US and other) gov'ts are the real enemy. Imposing what they want done (which is obviously not in the best interests of the ppl) and how it will be the end of us. In the last two lines he's telling ppl that if you don't speak up and fight, we're gonna lose. Basically about how gov'ts want to become dictatorships and completely control everyone (very similar to religion which he hates too of course :P)

    General CommentI think he's talking about how the government is shit, and while he is supposed to blindly follow like most other people do, he just can't.

    General CommentI swear this Slayer song is the bestest evah! This goes up there with War Ensemble it's just a pure onslaught and the whole rhythm of the lyrics at this bit:

    Still I know that in the end
    I'm expected to pretend
    That I can't think for myself
    Blame it all on someone else
    Half hearted smile
    While you look the other way

    Gets me every time, the solos are pro too - how can Kerry King just mess about on the whammy and put some random notes together but make it a memorable solo? It's crazy stuff!

    Anyway, the song meaning is as Child_uv_KoRn says, it's about the whole US government and in some parts I think it's specifically about Bush. "I can't relate to your verbal idiocy", think of the number of times Bush has said something really stupid.

    "Complacency is your demise" - i.e. if you don't do something about it and just sit on your arse being complacent you will pay the price!

    General Comment This song is about our government controlling us. On 911, elements in our government and likely other governments secretly conducted a false-flag operation disguised as a terrorist attack. Anyone with some sense who looks at the evidence would know the official reports were BS. If you feel that you do have some sense, I urge you to look at the little evidence available for yourself if you haven’t already. Unfortunately, large amounts of evidence has been classified or destroyed.

    “We are not afraid to follow truth wherever it may lead, nor to tolerate any error so long as reason is left free to combat it.” -Thomas Jefferson

    The government needed a few things to reach its goals. Including an attack on us, an enemy to fight, propaganda, and restriction of our rights. Think of it as a new Pearl Harbor. They chose "terrorist" because they knew two things, first and foremost being that it is believable and second you can't completely stop them (a war that can't be one and will last). They made us FEAR the terrorist with propaganda from the CIA fed media, look up Operation Mockingbird for further information. Hopefully you have heard of the Patriot Act, which allows the government to spy on or snatch you just by simply saying they believe you may be involved in terrorism. This doesn't require them to provide any proof or allow you to prove your innocence. This is the conspiracy this song is about, a CONSpirACY theory about the injection of FEAR (Consfearacy) into a society to control them.

    "Anyone who has the power to make you believe absurdities has the power to make you commit injustices." - Voltaire

    Please research 911 and find out for yourself what happened, I could tell you everything I have found out, but the biggest problem in society would remain. The problem with society is that huge amounts of people depend on other people for knowing what truth is and what is false, meaning they don’t exercise their brain and critical thinking ability. If you don’t exercise your mind, you will have trouble when you try to think critically and you are likely to accept lies over strong factual evidence. Some people believe the government had nothing to do with the 911 attacks because they have “faith” in our government. The people of the “faith crowd” have no interest in using their brains, considering they openly admit that they trust without logical proof and shun actual evidence and rational thinking. There is nothing patriotic in willful ignorance, the policy that the “faith crowd” exercises. Intellectuals tend to refer to these individuals as Sheeple, because they are easily persuaded and make easy targets for propaganda.

    “If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.” -Thomas Jefferson
