You have all wept once more… why? I would never ask
for such. Go.
I have realized for once in my existence my true
happiness. This is a first time for me… I feel
innocent, caring, and non-threatening.
Reincarnation for a better life… becoming one with
true harmony. No gods have caressed or burned me, only
nature is willing to comfort me.
Salvation is dead and all of you have passed away with
me today. I will never have to entertain or please any
of you ever again. I am alive.
My memory is the only thing keeping the old tears in
my eyes.
I still know that all of you are taking for the sake
of not leaving. You are killing the innocent for your
so-called nutrition. You are infecting our lands with
your filth. You are killing for the sake of your
promotions in life.
One day we will all be in this soil… with no gods to
slave to, and no heroes to kill for.

    General Comment"This song was written as if I was already deceased. It explains how this death is the first time I've actually felt like an innocent human being. I feel that death is a natural, beautiful thing. With the beliefs that I have (veganism, etc...) I can never truly be non-hypocritical till I¹m underground. The second half of the song talks about my feelings after I get past the self-thinking stage. I start realizing that just cause I'm innocent now; there is still an entire species above me that is not. The last line just says how the end of the human race will be very peaceful because all things that are confrontational in society will no longer have any meaning to us. I know it's morbid, but that's how I felt when I wrote the song. -tommy" ----- from the bands website

    General Commentok since btbam is such an important part of my lfie I felt compelled to add my own interpretation to this site since its so unique,...its sad that something hasnt been made like this already, with tons of feedback...

    the intro, im guessing is a throwback to the weakminded tears of society unknowing of the true state of things.. he has realized true happiness realizing that he is a part of nature and the true order of things, unlike those he weeps for....

    no gods have caressed me.....only nature is willing to comfort me....this is a loaded statement based on guessing apparent philosophical adherence to nature...

    salvation is dead, is a reference to God is Dead a quote by nietzsche, maybe not direct....if he feels that he dies then all of the world dies with him because his beliefs encapsulate the state of the world....He is alive because he doesnt care about what the world feels....his memory is the only thing tiering him to this paltry existence....

    and it ends, with a rant about hedonism, and apparent morals that are fake (charities and donations)....

    and ending with a statement that humanity is done with no heroes to kill for and no life to die for
