"M-16" as written by and Thomas Such....
The awe of love pulled out of the roots
Just rolling thunder we found
Pregnant with the tears of shame
But never let 'em out

We shoot 'em down
We shoot 'em down
We shoot 'em down

Free fire zone with my m-16
Vendetta burns inside
Wiped out their lives for eyes unseen
Mercy chilled to the freezing point
To the war

Blind religion,clouded minds
Called by the name of war
223 body penetration
Before you hit the ground

We shoot 'em down
We shoot 'em down
We shoot 'em down

Free fire zone with my m-16
Vendetta burns inside
Wiped out their lives for eyes unseen
Mercy chilled to the freezing point
Free fire zone with my m-16
Vendetta burns inside
Wiped out their lives for eyes unseen
Mercy chilled to the freezing point
To the war
You are imploring to my aid
Machine gun fire scorn
Life corroded from inside
Remains in silent force

We shoot 'em down
We shoot 'em down
We shoot 'em down

Free fire zone with my m-16
Vendetta burns inside
Wiped out their lives for eyes unseen
Mercy chilled to the freezing point
Free fire zone with my m-16
Vendetta burns inside
Wiped out their lives for eyes unseen
Mercy chilled to the freezing point

Free fire zone with my m-16
Free fire zone with my m-16
Mercy chilled to the freezing point
To the war

    General CommentThe vocals sound so intense coupled with the instrumental. Anyway, the meaning is obvious. The album was supposed to be a concept on the Vietnam War. This is about the US soldiers using their M16 rifles.
