"Roots Bloody Roots" as written by Massimiliano A. Cavalera, Andreas Rudolf Kisser, Igor Cavalera and Paulo Xisto Jr. Pinto....
Roots Bloody Roots [Repeat: x3]
Roots Bloody

I believe in our fate
We don't need to fake
It's all we want to be
Watch me Freak!

I say
We're growing every day
Getting stronger in every way
I'll take you to a place
Where we shall find our

Roots Bloody Roots [Repeat: x4]

Rain bring me the strength
Is breeding me this way
To get to another day
And all I want to see
Set Us free

Why can't you see
Can't you feel
This is real

I pray we don't need to change
Our ways to be saved
That all we want to be
Watch us Freak!

    General CommentNow here´s something I don´t understand, why has this song become so damn popular? Roots aint even a real killer album like Beneath The Remains (witch really ruled), actually the only song I like from this album is ratamahatta, but I just don´t understand what´s so great about this song - It only sounds boring

    General CommentTHIS SONG IS PRETTY GOOD... ALTHOUGH I RECON CHAOS AD AND BENEATH THE REMAINS ARE BOTH BETTER ALBUMS THAN ROOTS... ROOTS BLOODY ROOTS IS THE ONLY GOOD 1 ON ROOTS... I THINK RATAMAHATTA IS PRETTY CRAP HONESTLY

    General CommentI like this song and the album, but it's by far the weakest Max-era Sepultura album.

    General CommentTHIS SONG ROCKS!!

    I remember when I first discovered that I was gay I would listen to this song knowing that others, like Sepultura had been through what I had been through. This song gave me the courage to come out.
    I love it when they play this live. It always excites me so much, I get so hard!

    Anyway, onto the meaning of the song.

    "Roots Bloody Roots
    Roots Bloody Roots
    Roots Bloody Roots
    Roots Bloody Roooaaaaaahh"

    This is at the heart of every gay man's desires. Bloody roots, brutal fucking that results in your partner's anus starting to bleed as you roar in passion! FUCK YEAH!

    "I
    Believe In Our Fate
    We Don't Need To Fake
    It's All We Wanna Be
    Watch Me Freeeaaak !!"

    Here we see the question of whether being gay is a choice answered when we are told that it is "fate". We can't change it, there's no need to fake, we should just be proud whenever we wanna get our homosexual, anal-rampaging freak on!

    "I Say
    We're Growing Every Day
    Getting Stronger In Every Way"

    These lines refer to the gay community getting bigger and stronger. The more accepted it becomes and the more people that are coming out of the closet then the bigger and stronger we become!

    "I'll Take You To A Place
    Where We Shall Find Our

    Roots Bloody Roots
    Roots Bloody Roots
    Roots Bloody Roots
    Roots Bloody Roots"

    These lyrics discuss being taken to a place, (usually a public toilet) where we can have bloody passionate roots!

    "Rain
    Bring Me The Strength
    Is Breeding Me This Way
    To Get To Another Day
    And All I Want To See
    Set Us Free"

    Here the band are asking for strength and courage to face another day as gay men in a world full of prejudice.
    It also mentions being bred this way, being bred gay.

    "Why
    Can't You See
    Can't You Feel
    This Is Real
    Ahhh"

    Here we see the band asking for acceptance from the straight community. Telling us that being gay is just the same, just as real; as being straight.

    "I Pray
    We Don't Need To Change
    Our Ways To Be Saved
    That All We Wanna Be
    Watch Us Freak"

    Again Sepultura prays for acceptance and tells us not to change, not to act straight or hide who we are, we will be saved anyway. Watch us be proud gay men! Watch us get our anal freak on!


    Fuck all the haters saying this song sucks!

    General CommentHMM THE REASON FOR THIS SONG BEING SO POPULAR IS THAT WHEN ROOTS CAME OUT SEPULTURA WAS AT THEIR PEAK OF POPULARITY AND BASICALLY ROOTS BLOODY ROOTS BECAME VERY WELL KNOWN... NOT ALOT OF PPLZ AREN'T FAMILIAR WITH THEIR BETTER MUSIC SO THATS WHY
