"Halo" as written by Philip John Demmel, Adam Duce, Robert Conrad Flynn and Dave Mcclain....
This is our call to arms, will you stand beside me?
This is our time to fight, no more compromising
And this blackened heart will sing
For sad solidarity

Halo over my demise
Following a god so blind
Shallow in their sickening
Swallow not the shit they feed

This is our right to life, not religious rights
This is abortions knife, aiming at the womb of
The Christian conspiracy
So open thine eyes and see

The Halo over our demise
following a god so blind
sallow in their sickening
swallow not the shit they feed

Our time, Will come
Our time, Will come
Our time, Is now
Our time, Is now

Halo, Follow, Sallow, Swallow.

The Halo over our demise
following a god so blind
sallow in their sickening
swallow not the shit they feed

Set me free

Your words will never hold us down
Prayers won't be spared on you
Satisfaction Denied
'Til you're dead and gone
Gone
Dead and gone!
You're gone!

    General CommentRob Flynn says:
    "This is basically an anti-religion song, about the stuff that's been going on in America like them trying to make abortions illegal again. It's a halo over our demise".

    This is about how America, though supposedly a country of freedom, is still under the strangelhold of Christianity, as evidenced with the recent abortion debates. This song reflects exactly how I feel about religion and America - that society is still under it's grasp, no matter how progressive we claim to be. It's a sad, epic call for freedom from the chains of Christianity. I'm glad Rob's prepared to write such controversial lyrics.

    General CommentReligion is abused now day but it still is something to believe n when all else fails. Im a Christian but i believe religion is being abused. Religion needs to b cut out of all things political and school. I swear to u guy that my freshman year my schools talent show feltlikefucking church It pissed me off.

    General CommentMusically, this song is amazing and easily one of the band's best. Lyrically, it doesn't do much for me on a personal level. Without getting into a debate on the specific issues Robb brings up, I'll just say that while it's undeniable that Christian values play a large role in our society (which is sometimes a good thing, and sometimes a bad thing), the idea and usage of the phrase "Christian conspiracy" is a little much for me.

    General CommentBlackened89, "when uneducated, uninformed, or misinformed individuals start trying to indoctrinate innocent kids sitting in their bedroom, trouble is usually the outcome," eh?

    So you excuse all of the religious wackos(many of whom, I should add, haven't taken any theology courses) that indoctrinate young people but chastise a metal band that doesn't force their music on anyone? Get a grip man. You're like one of those people that criticizes Tom Morello for spewing uneducated far-left liberal ideals.

    I have to say that I agree with the lyrics to this song. And not because I was indoctrinated as a kid into being atheist. I came to the same conclusions as Robb Flynn long ago from thinking about things myself, rather than letting somebody tell me what to believe.

    General CommentWhen I first heard that they were comparing The Blackening to Master of Puppets, I said what the fuck I gotta see for myself. Yesterday, this song came on one of my satellite radio channels and holy shit. I was blown away by it. It's like I can just fall away, fall into the damn song. I plan to get this CD now, after I get TTAOE.
