"Blood On Your Hands" as written by Michael Amott, Angela Gossow, Christopher Amott and Daniel Erlandsson....
You were born your brother's keeper
Why can I see blood on your hands?
You became your brother's slayer
Embrace again upon death

At the end of all this hatred lies even deeper hate
Their darkness has defeated you
Your lifeline running backwards

Remember, sins of our fathers
A requiem, for the countless dead

Blood is on your hands
The wages of sin

Future's eyes closing now
Soul eclipse taking place
Laments rise, tears of the dead
From the other side of the grave

You were born your brothers keeper
Why can I see blood on your hands?
Their darkness has defeated you
Your lifeline running backwards

Remember, sins of our fathers
A requiem, for the countless dead

Blood is on your hands
The wages of sin

Future's eyes closing now
Soul eclipse taking place
Laments rise, tears of the dead
From the other side of the grave

From the other side of the grave

Blood is on your hands
The wages of sin

    General CommentNew album is pure fuckin' metal!!!

    Arch Enemy seem to have done what Iron Maiden did with their last album, and written about war, or power struggles, but I'll have to listen to it some more to be sure.

    General Commentomg one of the best songs in the universe and only one comment?!?!
    I think its about an imbred family that kill each other a lot.
    "Remember
    Sins of our fathers
    A requiem
    For the countless dead"
    our fathers; other people in the family commited murder.
    the countless dead; same thing lots of people killed

    General CommentWell... the first verse is pretty much taken straight from the Bible, that's when Cain kills his brother Avel.

    The rest of the song just talks about us having to suffer because of Adam and Eve.

    General CommentI agree with Vasa in that this song is about how Cain killed Abel in the book of Genesis in the bible.

    Arch Enemy is fucking amazing!

    My OpinionFuck you Sessh0umaru01! Arch Enemy kick ass, but you can't call them 'br00tal'...Yes,they are Death Metal, but they can't be 'br00tal' because it's FUCKING MELODIC Dath Metal! Besides, they are kind of girly... And it's OK, but they are not 'br00tal'! These things are fucking 'br00tal': Deicide, Morbid Angel, Nile, Suffocation, Bloodbath, Dying Fetus, Impending Doom, Wormed, Skinless, Cannibal Corpse, Exhumed, Necrophagist, etc, etc... Do you even know what METAL is???
