I've seen the horrors
horrors that you've seen
but you have no right to call me a murderer
you have a right to kill me
I have a right to do that
but you have no right to judge me
it's impossible through words,
to describe what is necessary to those who do not know what horror means
horror.
horror has a face,
and you must make a friend of horror
horror and moral terror are your friends
if they are not,
then they are enemies to be feared
they are truly enemies

    General Commentthe background of this track, the cymbal/bassdrum/gutiar riff, is from 1:46 of track 5 (Moments over Exaggerate). Just in case anyone was wondering. =).

    General Commenti totaly understand karsey street because it states how you must over-come your fear of horror and become friends with it so that you will be able to over-come obstacles that you feared at one time

    General CommentThe fact that this is from Apocolypse now is interesting, especially since track 2 is called "Lazzaro" and in the movie, theres a part where friendly boats ride by each other in the river, and fuck with each other (mooning, throwing flares), one of the people on the "captains" boat yells "Is that you, Lazzaro?" I don't know if theres any other connection with the album as a whole and with apocolypse now.. but both of these seem more than coincidence.. at least they had the movie in mind when they wrote this...
