"Mass Murder Machine" as written by and Zakk Wylde....
Take a good look, I know what ya see
Shrouded in black, and all life's debris
Shot in the back, live through the day
Ain't no remorse, you do as they say

Now that I've seen what's come and past
Forget all that's pure, it never lasts
Inside the mass murder machine

Victims for life, slaves to the end
Rooted in sick, how it's always been
Built to destroy, one can't deny
The hole that becomes, the hand in the sky

Now that I've seen what's come and past
Forget all that's pure, it never lasts
Inside the mass murder machine
Now that I've seen what's come and past
Forget all that's pure, it never lasts
Inside the mass murder machine

I wish I was blind, yeah I wish I was blind
Oh no
I wish I was blind, yeah I wish I was blind
Oh no
I wish I was blind, yeah I wish I was blind
Oh no
I wish I was blind, yeah I wish I was blind
Oh Lord

I've seen all that's come and all that's past
Forget all that's pure, it never lasts
Inside the mass murder machine
I've seen all that's come and all that's past
Forget all that's pure, it never lasts
Inside the mass murder machine
I've seen all that's come and all that's past
Forget all that's pure, it never lasts
Inside the mass murder machine
I've seen all that's come and all that's past
Forget all that's pure, it never lasts
Inside the mass murder machine

    General CommentThis has to be one of my top favourite Zakk/BLS songs. It's one of those songs I will always hum to when listening to it.

    The meaning is quite simple, too. Our natural consequences when we try to cheat, steal or hurt adds up... leading to the mass murder machine, the final destination in life's wild, excess garbage. It's best to say we cannot escape fate and that maybe some people believe somedays that they wish they were done for cause they cannot bare the natural consequences any longer.

    General CommentMy other thoughts on this song:

    It could either be about his father and how Zakk imagined how he felt in the war, being around darkness all of the time.

    Or, one could also assume this is written for the slave days in America when they were treated poorly and never felt like human beings.

    Anyway, the solo near the end of the song is my favourite. Infact, this song is my second favourite by him. Anyway. heh.
