Everybody else steeped in wonder
as I finished out my stride.
What you cannot put asunder
The struggle to survive
I see idiots and hypocrites
can't cut me down to size
and I'll be goddamned if you'll
Take me alive

Casualties grown
Feeding the Earth no one knows
Build greater hope
Yet feed the slaughter our soul

I'd rather live than believe in eternity
Forget, Forgive
No discerning the fire that burned me
Forget, Forgive
I'd rather live than believe in eternity
Forget, Forgive
There's no cure for Mankind
Forgive, Forget!

Casualties grown
Feeding the Earth no one knows
Build greater hope
Yet feed the slaughter our soul
Feeding a bottomless hole
Bleeding our youth for the gold
On the Slaughterhouse Road

You can't end the war,
or compensate for the loss.
You can't erase the scars.
We can't restore the face
Of a nation behind bars,
Of decades laid to waste
On the Slaughterhouse Road

    General CommentI believe this song is mostly about war, pretty self explanatory, even the title suggests the same thing.
