"Iron and Stone (The Obsessed cover)" as written by and Oliver Hawkins Nate Mendel....
Made the sinners cry
He oped up his sky
The rivers ran with blood
The deserts name was love

Said who can not be saved
Soul of a man is much depraved
Don't act as if you are his clone
Made of iron and of stone

Justice swept the land
To raise the mortal man
And when he overcome
The war has just begun

As the darkness spreads across his land
Soul of man who stays his hand
Forms the basis of his home
Made of iron and of stone

When it came the time
To confess his crime
The people stood and stared
And didn't even care

And the morning had died
The millions knew that there was no lie
Temple was built and the worshiping showed
Made of iron and of stone

    General CommentI think it's great - so much energy and power, and you can really hear Dave's love of metal, it just makes me want to leap around the room.
    As for the song, I think it's about Jesus. I suppose the kiddies on the Pink Floyd discussion board would have more thoughts about it than I do.

    General CommentThis song sounds like is belongs on the Foo Fighter's first self-titles album (well, Dave Grohl's album but you know what i mean). As far as i know it was on the Breakout single tho.

    I also reakon that they should more songs like this, it makes me wanna spin around lots and then go and kick over a box of cornflakes, along with other destructive acts.

    The theme of it being about Jesus works in my opinion, especially the last two verses of how jesus was crucified and when they went to inspect the corpse it had vanished. Kudos to the Foo Fighters!!!
