"Bloodmeat" as written by and Rody Walker Moe Carlson....
Enemies of the Khanate strung on hooks like pigs to slaughter.
Heads will roll.
Heads will roll, throats will be slit and blood will flow like springs of water.
Heads will roll.
To the River Red(across the ochre steppe)

A thousand fathers killed, a thousand virgin daughters spread with swords still wet, with swords still wet with the blood of their dead.

Nurjan is upon us, he kills in silence after prayers.
Genghis Khan is upon us, and he slays his betrayers.
Thus still the fools of God will guard the city of our birth,
Hold an ear to the ground,
Hear the sound.
Of Clamoring and horses stammer as their gallop meets the earth.

A thousand fathers killed, a thousand virgin daughters spread with swords still wet, with swords still wet with the blood of their dead A thousand fathers killed, a thousand virgin daughters spread with swords still wet, with swords still wet with the blood of their dead

Tomorrow.
Tomorrow they will find us.
Hide the children free of sin.
We will meet their blades by morning.
Protected only by our skin.
Tomorrow we will find them.
Seek the youngest of their kin.
And we will meat them with our fury.

And we will crush them all like vermin.
And we will crush them all like vermin.

    General CommentIt's about the conquest of Genghis Khan across Eurasia. It seems to switch between the perspectives of the invaders and the refugees. Btw, Rody pronounces Khanate as "kah-nah-teh", but it's actually "kah-nayt".

    But damn, this shit sounds amazing, along with "Sequoia Throne". Can't wait for the album to be released. :D

    General CommentI hear either "the urchin" or "Lord Khan." I'm probably out of my mind.

    Song MeaningObviously the song is centered around the mid twelfth century, in a time and place at which Genghis Kahn was ceonquering the majority of Asia. Though a famed warlord whom killed millions, Khan's battles were strategized and precise. The militia's attacks were brutal as depiected. They were fast, silent, and accurate often taking the enemy by surprise. I can see how their conquests would be as much like the massacres this song portrays. The line, nurjin is upon us is incorrect, it should be now Jin is upon us. For those of you who do not know, Khan's birthname was Temujin. When his father, a local chieftain, was killed there was a dispute regarding who would lead the tribe. By 1206, Temujin’s evident military prowess united the Mongol tribes and earned him the title of Genghis Khan. The part, clamoring and horses stammering as their gallop meets the earth is associated with the fact that his men each had three to four horses so that they could travel one hundered miles per day. Genghis Khan is upon us, and he slays his betrayers is quite accurate, as he trusted no one and given the means, would likely kill fellow soldiers. Tomorrow we will find them, seek the youngest of their kinis rather confusing. Either it means that they would seek out the children to kill before their family as I imagine this would be a rather terrible tactic for accomplishing a surrender or perhaps acquiring information, or they sought out children to become future warriors as children can witness terrifying things and not be affected, forget, not comprehend the severity of the situation, or not care. A child's trust can be gained easily and they can be tought war tactics easier than adults. This is likely what the song refers to.

    General CommentI think this song has a somewhat political meaning. Maybe it is comparing Americans to Mongols.

    General CommentIt's not really political. The CD is about goddess worship as it's been said in a recent interview.

    And I'm pretty sure one of the things is 'with swords to write' not both 'with swords still wet.'

    General CommentI don't know if I'm the only one, but I don't think this song is as amazing as anything from Kezia. When I read the lyrics, I really have no idea what it's about. I'm hoping the rest of the new album is better than this.

    General CommentThose lyrics aren't all right. They're just what someone put together from listening to it.


    The CD is about/going to be about 'Goddess worship' as it's put. Go look at the 'Fortress' article on Wikipedia. It links to the interview, too, which is at subbacultcha.com or something.
