"Hunters of the Sky" as written by and Brann Dailor Brent Hinds....
Running faster than I ever have
Evading sharks in the sky
Death trap and I kill again
Dig through my own hives

Shelter from sky
Talon of raptor

Force-fed glass giant moth
Reaping fields of the flesh
Heavy hand thwart the scheme
Of the dominant nymph

Omen she brings
Carried on weathered wings

Fly reptile
Leather wings
Bones hollow
Petrified

Fly reptile
Leather wings
Bones hollow
Petrified

Running faster than I ever have
Evading sharks in the sky
The earth's ashing floats
What is good for man
Cast us out into the known

    General Commentwtf are you guys talking about? Actually I'm 2 years in the future so...
    It's about the protagonist being attacked by the hunters that he escaped from at the beginning. They are flying shark creatures. He feinds them off and continues his quest onward.

    General CommentI don't think it's literally supposed to mean sharks
    probably a kind of bird or griffin or something is now chasing him after he escapes the birchmen

    General Commenti personally think that it might have some more of a deeper meaning than the storyline of the album like someone in war

    "Running faster than I ever have
    Evading sharks in the sky
    Death trap and I kill again
    Dig through my own hives"

    obviously someone taking cover from fire and killing in war on home soil


    "Force-fed glass giant moth
    Reaping fields of the flesh"


    airstrikes



    "Omen she brings
    Carried on weathered wings"


    soldiers are shown as heros, but not many know what they bring to other countries
