Is this justifiable, this is life we lead. Blind
stares at what we call humanity.
So afraid to face what has already become of us. The
dark cloud passed lifetimes ago. The “saints” drink
the blood of their own. Your pathetic prayers mean
nothing for…
Our mother is already dead. She tried her best but the
dirt choked her. We raped her, and laughed as we
fucked her last chance of survival.
I sleep on her tears. They keep me awake. I fear that
closing my eyes might end me. But what am I? I’m just
a worthless member of a twisted language.
We all speak this twisted language. Is this
justifiable?
We have raped her, and we are pleasured from this.
Thinking this progress… progress stopped lifetimes
ago. We are raping with this life we lead. Everything
is all right. Lies-the twisted language we all
breathe.

    General Comment"This song is very old and way more straightforward than most of my lyrics. I wrote it around the same time as "more of myself to kill", as you can probably tell. This song basically is just me saying how displeased I am with the human species. We ruin everything around us, and we are the most unintelligent animals alive. Yes I do fall into the category of the human animal, and I too think of myself as a disease. We¹re all hypocrites and we all destroy. -tommy" ----------from the bands website

    Well, yes that makes sense since he said it, but I highly doubt tommy hates the human race as much as he says he does, it sounds more for publicity. And F.Y.I. tommy is kind of a human being too. But anyway I thought it was clever how "raping our mother" is actually the raping of mother earth and how we bulldozed it and made skyscrapers and felt satisfied with how it looked. Pretty good song.
