"Davidian" as written by Robert Conrad Flynn, Adam Duce, Chris Kontos and Logan Conrad Mader....
Blind man ask me forgiveness
I won't deny myself
Disrespect you have given
Your suffering's my wealth
I feed off pain, force fed to love it
And now I swallow whole
I'll never live in the past
Let freedom ring with a shotgun blast

Burn my fist to the concrete
My fear is my strength
Power, rage unbound strength
Been pounded by the streets
Cyanide blood burns down the skyline
Hatred is purity
The bullet connects at last
Let freedom ring with a shotgun blast

Scarred
Pour the salt in the wound

    General CommentEvery time I hear this song I think "Damn... why couldn't Kontos have stayed with MH?" Don't get me wrong, McClain is a kickass drummer... but this song is just fucking great.

    General CommentWally is right, a Davidian is a follower of David Koresh. Some psycho, charles manson wanna-be, who started a big religous cult back in the early 90s. And they killed a few of their own, and when police came to investiage, the Davidians fired on the police. Was a huge shoot-out and like 20 or 30 people died. It happened in Waco, Texas in 1993.

    I'm sure Davidian has other meanings, but that is probably the most popular one.

    Good song though.

    General Commentim not sure and this is my opinion but it could also be a coincidence but Remember the Waco disaster back a few years,well d group involved in that apart from the feds,the davidians were a far right anti-govt. movement which would also tie in with the "let freedom ring with the shotgun blast"
