Listen up you stinking maggots, it seems you just don't get it.
Well I've been appointed to inform you, your days are numbered.
You would cry, you would scream
If you knew half the things I see.
Please, please just do as I say,
Repent and leave your evil ways.

Meanwhile....planes drop from the sky,
People disappear and bullets fly.
Little grey men are coming our way,
(Tastes just like chicken, they say.)
Actually they're all around.
Secret bunkers underground.
Round 'em up, skin 'em alive,
Rolling, rolling, rolling, rawhide.

Carter is a clone.
Dozen brothers 'round the globe.
MJ-12 damned us to hell.
Scroll & Key, Skull & Bone.
It's only just begun.
The best is yet to come.
Area 51,
The spawn of Babylon.

Couldn't give a damn about "J.F.K.",
Everything's conspiracy.
Wouldn't be surprised if they have their way
(Tastes just like chicken, they say.)
I know it's hard to swallow.
It must sound too far fetched.
But you can bet your bottom dollar
I ain't going like the rest.

    General CommentI just caught the show in Philly last night, and it was absolutely insane. When Neil screamed the opening lines, the house lights flashed on, and the crowd of people moshing on the floor actually looked like a bunch of maggots attacking a rotting piece of meat. Really cool effect.

    General CommentThe song is not about Orwell's "Animal Farm" though the title was obviously inspired by the book's title. It's about all the secret things the world's elite are plotting against the people and their desire to reduce the world's population, hence the references to George Bush and Kerry's Skull and Bones Fraternity, planes dropping from the sky (9/11), Majestic 12 and the like. They throw in aliens out of sarcasm because the media always presents issues like 9/11 and the like along with aliens and chupacabras to make the issue appear ridiculous to the public. I did a line by line analysis, but lost it 3/4 of the way through writing it for you all, so let me know if you'd like to hear my interpretation, and I'll try again.

    My InterpretationI recently listened to an interview with Neil Fallon from some social-engineering podcast (Type "Neil Fallon" into iTunes) and in that interview they asked about Neil's song-writing process. He talks about essentially being inspired by a piece of fiction, or current events to come up with his own fictional premise or story for each song he writes. When he's asked about "Animal Farm" and what it's referencing, I was shocked and surprised not to hear not that Orwell's book inspired this song, but rather an old episode of "The Twilight Zone" entitled "To Serve Man".

    The episode is about a race of hyper-intelligent aliens coming down to Earth who have a book entitled "To Serve Man", and mankind believe that these space-men are there to solve all of their problems, and bring peace to their planet, only to find out much later that "To Serve Man" is actually a cookbook ("Taste's just like chicken", they say!). To be fair, I never thought Animal Farm the book never really fit well with Animal Farm the song, however this episode fits perfectly with this song.

    General CommentThis song is based off the book "Animal Farm" and is about Communism. I'm guessing the person that's meant to be singing this is Snowball the pig (Or whichever pig got ousted from The Farm for attempting the coup)
