"Left Hand Black" as written by and Glenn Danzig....
kinda like a dog
with seven pupils
in its eye
kinda like a madness
that refuses
in subside
kinda like everything you want
just w/ in your grasp
kinda like
how a banshee-wail
dances
on a living heart
I'm gonna stand
at the top of the world and
challenge the heavens
gonna bring you god
gonna bring you god
in the palm of the left
hand
black
gonna bring you god
kinda like
when the sun goes down
and darkness makes its climb
kinda like all your muscle tissue
starting to unwind
kinda like
if you brave the hate
fade it
to the left hand black

how I know
I can take their power
send it back at
triple times the strength

how I see the battle
and the bleeding human race
how I miss the taste of it
its sweet and warm
embrace

how I see
the world's demise
its last
and final gap
how I see reality
explode
into another kind of life

    My Interpretationkinda like a dog (a soldier)
    with seven pupils
    in its eye (7 richest countries)
    kinda like a madness
    that refuses
    in subside (imperialism)
    kinda like everything you want
    just w/ in your grasp (oil)
    kinda like
    how a banshee-wail
    dances
    on a living heart (patriotic fervor)
    I'm gonna stand
    at the top of the world and
    challenge the heavens (the UN)
    gonna bring you god (war)
    gonna bring you god (war)
    in the palm of the left
    hand
    black (oil rain on hand of hummer driver)
    gonna bring you god (war)
    kinda like
    when the sun goes down
    and darkness makes its climb (oil clouds)
    kinda like all your muscle tissue
    starting to unwind (anthrax pills)
    kinda like
    if you brave the hate (serve military)
    fade it
    to the left hand black (oily hand)

    how I know
    I can take their power (invasion of Kuwait)
    send it back at
    triple times the strength (annihilate Iraq)

    how I see the battle
    and the bleeding human race (war)
    how I miss the taste of it
    its sweet and warm
    embrace (patriotism)

    how I see
    the world's demise (peak oil)
    its last
    and final gasp (GWOT)
    how I see reality
    explode
    into another kind of life (martial law)
