How To Destroy Angels – The Believers Lyrics 9 years ago
Greetings brother,

I am not insulted by your incoherent statements.

Sorry if my interpretation of the song is provocative. The song itself may have been conceived with that in mind.

We are the angels (us and other life forms). And we are in eden. We have risen to the top and now we need to take care of the lower life forms and establish a working cooperative worldwide society. Old tribal psychology and poor religious explanations for our origin stand in the way of this goal. Do not worry though, our open divergent society will one day dilute the the foundations of these ancient traditions so much that they will fall by the wayside like all the other extinct religions.

THIS IS A SERIOUS REVIEW:

30% of the people reading this have a perfect ring of scars.*
*estimate

It's about a Religious figure and Cocks!

you had all of them on your side didn't you?
you believed in all your lies didn't you?
(Church and Dogma)
the ruiner's got a lot to prove
(Don't all religions?)
he's got nothing to lose
(Whats the alternative? Social disconnection in some societies. Atheism?)
and now he made you believe
(This is the Religion spreading)
the ruiner's your only friend
(The only way to salvation)
well, he's the living end to the cattle he deceives <- beautiful & literal
the raping of the innocent
( I have family paying tithing they cant afford. Seriously. )
you know the ruiner ruins everything he sees
(I agree, belief has consequences)
now the only pure thing left in my fucking world is wearing your disease
( This is his cock I am serious )

how'd you get so big?
(this is his cock, and the church, both very literally)
how'd you get so strong?
(this is his cock, and the church, both very literally) they are powerful
how'd it get so hard?
(this is his cock, and the church, both very literally) Hard on peoples interests
how'd it get so long?
(this is his cock, and the church, both very literally) Time running

you had to give them all a sign
( On Our Cocks )
you had to covet what was mine
( Our Cocks )

the ruiner's a collector
( collects people and foreskin )
he's an infector
( Infecting minds and circumcision wounds )
serving his shit to his flies
(the dogma is shit and the flies are the followers )
maybe there will come a day when those that you keep blind will suddenly realize
(don't hold your breath)
maybe it's a part of me you took it to a place i hoped it would never go
( I dont really know, maybe this is an emotional wound? )
and maybe that fucked me up much more than you'll ever know
( I have family being torn up over religion, it's totally gay )

and what you gave to me
( On his Cock )
my perfect ring of scars
( a perfect ring of scar. Google images it if you aren't familiar with a cut hog )
you know I can see
( I declare, I see this is a bullshit game for what it is )
what you really are
( And what part you play in it )

you didn't hurt me, nothing can hurt me
you didn't hurt me, nothing can stop
( This is liberation from the religious chains )

Nothing like a little penis surgery on infants!
I'm pissed off about my missing penis skin too dammit!

I guess the "proof" is some sort of call to action for the listener to ask themselves honestly for proof?

How To Destroy Angels – Parasite Lyrics 10 years ago
Parasite.
This title makes me think of a literal parasite. Maybe its commentary on something else.
Something that really stood out to me was the first 3 or 4 bars from "My country tis of thee."

It seems this is a description of the people with power over religious groups who use that power and the culture to get others to bleed for our energy policy (among others). I personally would directly call the ideas themselves the parasite but I don't think that is what is going on here.

yes i can feel you - religious people tend to describe belief as a feeling
Yes i believe - Yes I believe
Yes you can have me - I am willing to sacrifice myself
Yes i can bleed - yes, i can bleed for those ideas

Parasite - a parasite feeds off the host.

Yes now i need you - People get addicted to the ideas
You soothe my mind - because they help you deal
Yes you have shown me - they claim to have answers we all want to have

You stupefy - how stupefying

Each track on the album is about how to "destroy angels"

Its about religion + destruction

(Christianity or Islam, you decide)

Muddy trail beside the water - The water is religion, the muddy trail is fundamentalists
Leads the lambs into the slaughter - leads the brainwashed to do things like kill and blow themselves up.
Hands and knees, we all atone - we will all pay for this
Path is paved with blood and bone - with our dead loved ones
Trembling hands reveal their purpose - Nervous hands reveal a bomb
Blisters form beneath the surface - blisters form under the skin of those near
No one gonna make us leave - nobody can talk them out of this brainwashed state
We're the ones that still believe - believers have to do it themselves

Fear comes piercing through the silence - when the belief causes fear of others
In the air, the scent of violence - an eye for an eye
Watching from above the trees - Watching from our buildings
We're the ones that still believe - we bow to the gods at our own peril

Each track on the album is about how to "destroy angels".

How To Destroy Angels – The Space In Between Lyrics 10 years ago
This song is about the wars. (Afghanistan + Iraq)

The video is about America (and others) being totally distracted by bullshit. We are completely oblivious to the atrocity and immediacy to the extent we can't see the room burning down around us.

Peace.

I agree, there are a lot of political songs on this album from my view.
