"Southern Rock" as written by and Glenn Porter Mathew Thomas Skiba....
I can't believe my heart's still pounding
I can't believe how close I came
And meanwhile heaven's falling
The fallen angels flown away

And that'll be me someday
With stolen wings and evil ways
Straight south with the keys to the pearly gates

Hard to believe my heart stopped pounding
Hard to believe I played this game
My worst nightmares became real
I got so scared that I forgot my name

And that'll be me someday
With stolen wings and evil ways
Straight south with the keys to the pearly gates

    General CommentMatt had a big interest in satanism and Anton Lavey. It's just about the idea of heaven and hell not being real and what really happens to us when we die.

    General CommentThe song is right in line with Alkalinew Trio. These guys are great-a real kick to the nuts, or whatever you happen to have. "Stolen wings and evil ways.." go hand in hand with me.

    General CommentI love this song, not quite sure what it's about, but like all their other stuff, it is awesome....sounds like it has some biblical allusion in there to me.

    General CommentI think this song is about how he's gonna die and go to hell. He says how his heart stopped. And ive heard theories of death where you die and then you forget everything including your name. And of course the stolen wings and evil ways thign speaks for itself.

    General Commenthmm. i guess the "im going to hell" theory is what im leaning towards. although, if thats the case, its unnusually direct with its message. a lot of alk3 songs are full of metaphores. so this one still puzzles me.

    General CommentYeah definitely the hell theory for me as well. Don't really like this song very much, it's the worst on their self titled in my opinion.
