For the cause, my trial, my judgment, my retribution.
A new machine leaving all behind,
Mercy will only complicate.
Fill the space inside, shoot to kill the wounded,
The calloused tongue.
My aim is precise, armed with my own failures, the cost of being you.
Brace yourself like a man,
You fail to qualify, it's only personal, just being...
A new machine, a new machine, my aim is precise, my retribution.

    General CommentI think this song is about a local massacre, such as a school shooting.

    General CommentLiving Sacrifice? If you don't think their Christians then you need help. Romans 12:1 is their verse which makes their name. Just because they may not sing about the church doesn't mean anything. Many people can write better lyrics than the same "Oh Lord bless us" stuff.

    Song MeaningIt's about how tribes in third world countries kill each other and how Christians "attack" each other.

    General CommentIm not quite sure how living sacrifice is a christian band. Ive not heard one song that speaks of god! lol, maybe their not christian, but thats what my media player says. Anyway, i dont think this song is talking about weapons such as guns, knives, ect. I think its more along the lines of a child having troubles making it through life, and he's trying to find ways to redeem himself of his failures.....i dont know why i think this, but i do lol.
