    General CommentThis is just a really good jam session, kind of like the Pinion of Year Zero. One of my personal favorites, simply because I just like Trent's intrumentals better than any ever. Well I guess it's not technically an instrumental...But basically yeah.

    It's just laying down the rest of the album, with a march of soldiers.

    General Comment...Okay. Let's say for all intents and purpouses, that I, myself, am Our Country.

    "HYPERPOWER! WE NEED MORE POWER! WE CANNOT LET ANYTHING ELSE BE ABOVE US! FUCK EVERYTHING ELSE! WE NEED POWER!"

    Now, the song kinda has ideals of the old belief of Manifest Destiny.

    General CommentIt's an instrumental intro retards, and it has one word that kind of has to do with the story line. Some people are just born with extra chromosones, you can't help it.

    And Dragonball Z can lick a scabby cockhole for all i care.

    General CommentWhile you're all learning about 'hyperpower' on wikipedia you should maybe look up Francis Fukuyama and "The End of History and the Last Man" while you're at it. "Hyperpower" is one interpretation of a particular point in time, "The Beginning of the End" is another, essential reading for this idea being Paul Kennedy's "The Rise and Fall of the Great Powers". The songs work best as a pair. Great to see NIN has followed through on the political turn the project took in "With Teeth"!
