    General CommentI believe that this song is talking about the all-American trait of getting what you want by any means possible, no matter how cruel or wrong it may be, and it's using the treatment of Native Americans as an example.

    General Commentsure, but this song can also be taken literally--when the american settlers wanted the indians' land, they actually gave the indians blankets laced with the smallpox virus, killing thousands of them. pretty goddamn sick.

    General CommentThis one is pretty straight foward... I must add, that the last fourth of the song, when that fabulous melody comes in... is awesome!
