"Unrepentant" as written by and Corey/gregoletto Beaulieu....
A poor man
With four daughters
All wept in the sun

Daughter commits adultery
Or so he was told
Bought a knife and machete
After Friday's prayers
They have become unhonorable
Daughter must be killed

For your honor
You will slaughter
Every one of your daughters

For your honor
You will slaughter
It's you who should be slaughtered

Terror grips the steel with hunger
Thirsting to avenge it's soiled pride
I see a mad man

You take their lives away as they sleep
The blade kisses at their throats
Love bleeds without a chance to weep
You take, you take their lives away

You're the man unrepentant
Don't you realize
You murdered your own children
Call that honorable cause?

For your honor
You will slaughter
Every one of your daughters

For your honor
You will slaughter
It's you who should be slaughtered

Terror grips the steel with hunger
Thirsting to avenge it's soiled pride
I see a mad man

You take their lives away as they sleep
The blade kisses at their throats
Love bleeds without a chance to weep
You take, you take their lives away

For your honor
You will slaughter
Every one of your daughters

For your honor
You will slaughter
It's you who should be slaughtered

Terror grips the steel with hunger
Thirsting to avenge it's soiled pride
I see a mad man

You take their lives away as they sleep
The blade kisses at their throats
Love bleeds without a chance to weep
You take, you take their lives away

    General CommentThis song is about a man in Pakistan who heard that his daughter (well actually niece) had committed adultery. He slaughtered her in the night, along with his actual daughters (three of them) fearing they would follow their older sister's footsteps.
    You can find more info here:

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…

    He went against his religion in doing so. And I'm sure he will receive a grievous punishment in hell for murdering his own innocent children.

    General CommentJust a fixed up version of the lyrics :

    A poor man
    With four daughters
    All wept in the sun
    Daughter commits adultery
    Or so he was told
    Bought a knife and machete
    After Friday’s prayers
    They have become, un-honorable
    Daughter must be killed

    For your honor
    You will slaughter
    Every one of your daughters

    For your honor
    You will slaughter
    It’s you who should be slaughtered

    Terror grips the steel with hunger
    Thirsting to avenge it’s soiled pride
    I see a mad man

    You take their lives away as they sleep
    The blade pierces at their throats
    Love bleeds without a chance to weep
    You take, you take their lives away

    You’re the man unrepentant…
    Don’t you realize,
    You murdered your own children?
    Call that, honorable cause?

    For your honor
    You will slaughter
    Every one of your daughters

    For your honor
    You will slaughter
    It’s you who should be slaughtered

    Terror grips the steel with hunger
    Thirsting to avenge it’s soiled pride
    I see a mad man.

    You take their lives away as they sleep
    The blade kisses at their throats
    Love bleeds without a chance to weep
    You take, you take their lives away

    For your honor
    You will slaughter
    Every one of your daughters

    For your honor
    You will slaughter
    It’s you who should be slaughtered

    Terror grips the steel with hunger
    Thirsting to avenge it’s soiled pride
    I see a mad man.

    You take their lives away as they sleep
    The blade kisses at their throats
    Love bleeds without a chance to weep
    You take, you take their lives away

    General Commentthese are the lyrics as it is in the cd packet


    A poor man
    With four daughters
    A wife and a son
    Daughter commits adultery
    Or so he was told
    Bought a knife and machete
    After Friday’s prayers
    Feared the young would follow old
    Thought all must be killed

    For your honor
    You will slaughter
    Every one of your daughters

    For your honor
    You will slaughter
    It’s you who should be slaughtered

    Terror grips the steel with hunger
    Thirsting to avenge its soiled pride
    A shamed mad man

    You take their lives away as they sleep
    The blade kisses at their throats
    Life bleeds without a chance to weep
    You take, you take their lives away

    Yet a man unrepentant…
    Don’t you realize,
    You murdered your own children?
    Call that, honorable cause?

    For your honor
    You will slaughter
    Every one of your daughters

    For your honor
    You will slaughter
    It’s you who should be slaughtered

    Terror grips the steel with hunger
    Thirsting to avenge its soiled pride
    A shamed mad man.

    You take their lives away as they sleep
    The blade kisses at their throats
    Life bleeds without a chance to weep
    You take, you take their lives away

    For your honor
    You will slaughter
    Every one of your daughters

    For your honor
    You will slaughter
    It’s you who should be slaughtered

    Terror grips the steel with hunger
    Thirsting to avenge it’s soiled pride
    I see a mad man.

    You take their lives away as they sleep
    The blade kisses at their throats
    Love bleeds without a chance to weep
    You take, you take their lives away

    General CommentSkater...this is exactly what I said to my mate when I heard this song. It's through the never and the lyrics do remind me of bring your daughter to the slaughter. The whole album is based on what Metallica did during the black album. His voice, the riffs...it may be a rip off but fuck it I say!!! I love trivium and if they wanna show us how heavily they're influenced by a few bands then let em. I'm loving the fact that after all these years I can listen to a band that reminds me of the greats. I love Trivium!!!

    General Commentdang this song is good. it is critisiing the tradition of so called honour killings which go on in the islamic world. i love it how trivium pick out examples to highlight a point in with a song. this way the band can make a point and not have annoyingly vague lyrics which sdont get the point across as well

    General CommentIt's got the word slaughter and daughter in it and it reminds you of Iron Maiden? Wonder why? Forget the fact that the subject matter is completely different and that some of Iron Maiden's lyrics were a bit silly at the best of times...(not a patch on Megadeth though!) but this song MUST be a rip off of Iron Maiden.

    People need to stop whining about the Metallica influences too, I've listened to most Metallica albums and to be quite honest I can't see the huge Metallica comparison. The Crusade is slightly thrashy but the riffs are nowhere near the style of Metallica and the guitar tone is a mile away! We've heard it before, now talk about the song meanings damnit!
