    General CommentThis song is about the abuse by major corporations
    of the environment and all life. Especially companies
    like Exxon, "...budgets that burst with oil compassion common criminals seek asylum concrete pillow exxon dreams..." I think this quote explains
    the meaning of Ogre's lyrics.

    Note: If you haven't noticed removing the last x from Hexonxonx will form a title that sounds like hex on exxon

    General CommentHex On Exxon is right. It's about the Valdez disaster in which the Exxon tanker Valdez shyted it and dumped WORLDS of crude oil into the seas off the coast of Alaska. I still remember pictures of animals black as pitch standing there as though they didn't know what had hit them.

    SP have always been fiercely environmentalist.

    General CommentAlthough you two are correct about the "hex on exxon" part... there are other topics he talks about in this song

    some particulars are monks setting themselves on fire in protest (a picture of this is on one of the rage against the machine covers!) "melted prophets"

    Another topic is the book burnings that took place in germany, and other parts of the world..another form of protest.

    Yes, SP has indeed been an active enviromentalist group.. but theyve also been quite political (though, i suppose the two do coincide with eachother)

    General CommentI've never thought of them as environmentalists as much as anti-corporate and anti-state, and there is a differnce in ideology. Fucking wallmart caters to environmentalists while still destroying communities around the globe in the interest of the GDP.

    General CommentcOinterprO, You never thought of Skinny Puppy as environmentalists??? Have you heard Testure or Natures Revenge? How about the name of the band? Cevin and Ogre in particular have been fierce animal rights activists for decades now. I wish I understood your derogatory comment referring to Wallmart. They fight environmental organizations tooth and nail AND destroy communities by undermining local businesses among other things. Walmart and Earth First are not cooperative, never will be.

    Melted prophets could also refer to glaciers as melting glaciers where among the first signs of global warming.

    General CommentWow, I stumbled on this years later, but all of you seem to have an amazing insight into the mind of someone on recreational heroin, and where the fuck is wallmart? At least two of you all have located it in Llanboble, Wales???maybe they have a wallmart there, eh???
