"Human Strain" as written by Jeffery John Hanneman, Tomas Enrique Araya and Kerry King....
Illness, infected born mutilated strain
Issue transfusion no one left to blame
Nature's way of thinning out the human fucking herd

Disease, to war to fear his own kind
The human strain, returning plague
Drink the tainted blood
From the only child

Cities, increase speed population rise
Dying, the future process in the genes
Death stalking man as he embraces the absurd
Through peace, through life, the hatred of himself

The human strain, returning plague
Drink the tainted blood
From the only child
Death stalking man though peace, through life, though hatred of himself

Death stalking man, as he embraces his crucifixion
Skinless resurrection, from the bodies of the dead
Sickness is increasing, as the oceans turn red

Apparatus for self destruction, day of judgement is now at hand
Decayed memories haunt vaccinated minds
Risk contamination mechanism of death
Anyone left alive scorch turn to ash

Disease, war black death touching man
The human strain, returning plague
Drink the tainted blood
From the only child

    General CommentIt honestly sounds like it's about a far worse plague.

    General Commentit probably isn't about any plague in particular, just all the hype of the swine flu inspired it i guess.
