"Territory" as written by Hopeton St. Aubin Lindo, Siccaturie Alcock, Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare....
Unknown man
Speaks to the world
Sucking your trust
A trap in every word

War for territory
War for territory

Choice control
Behind propaganda
Poor information
To manage your anger

War for territory
War for territory

Dictators' speech
Blasting off your life
Rule to kill the urge
Dumb assholes' speech

Years of fighting
Teaching my son
To believe in that man
Racist human being
Racist ground will live
Shame and regret
Of the pride
You've once possessed

War for territory
War for territory

    General CommentSaw 'em live last year and the rocked (even if Derrick was singing), Territory is their best song i believe, but then again i am not a massive Sepultura fan. By the way Sepultura means Grave yard in Portuguese

    General CommentIt actually means gravestone, in both, potuguese and spanish. It's definitely one of Sepultura's best songs, or at least one of my favorite. The drumming in the intro is wicked!

    General CommentI think Sepultura means sepulchre.

    Anyway, Terriroty is about racial wars, SUCH AS the Hutu-Tutsi wars, and about territorial wars, such as the Israel-palestinian wars.

    General CommentNo, "sepulcro" is "sepulchre"... Shadowbitch is right.

    And nope, it's not about specfifically racial wars.

    Seriously, this doesn't take a genius to figure out... you people just wanna try to make the meaning too specific about a war or kind of war...
