"The Art Of Shredding" as written by and Vincent Paul/abbott Abbott....
Unity is a rare thing
Blind eyes of society bring
The category of minority
Now what are we supposed to be?
Born free to be
Powerless to change the world
With our lives in the hands of madmen

Now in times when society needs us
This is where the sin begins
We're aware they're going to free us
Rage from our hearts within
Born of this world
Which is a living hell
But we'll be closer to heaven

So now, this is the art
To shred, its only emotion
This is the art
To shred, its only emotion


So now, this is the art
To shred, its only emotion
This is the art
To shred, its only emotion
This is the art
To shred, its only emotion

    General CommentI couldn't care less about what the song means. THE ART OF SHREDDING suggests that there is some heavy axe grinding in this song, and Dimebag doesn't disappoint. Quality song. Pantera lives and so does Dimebag Darrell. Fuck Yeah!

    General CommentNo no and no! Did you ever go to a Pantera gig?

    Yes, this song is about how the world is run by madman and how pissed off we are, BUT we have metal music as a release from this. Mosh, lose yourself in the music. This is the art to shred.
