Lead-base for the holy ghost
Inebriated leather-host
A loaded, bladed, silent pain
Will nail you to the world again
Strychnine starts the bleeding dark
Metals aging - Birth an mark
Shards of empty battle grey
Poisoned beasts are out to play
The dead are implicated
Implied but never stated
Carve me out those other words to live by
Yeah mine's sterilized as well
I never used it can't you tell
It's small enough to fit in your
Favorite ikon's mouth

    General CommentIn the second to last line, the word "fit" is actually "hide". It says "fit" in the booklet too, but in the song it is clearly "hide". Anyway, the lyrics are pretty strait forward: commenting negatively on religion, most likely Christianity ("holy ghost"). The last four lines in particular really sum up the puritanical views of religion/Christianity. It also seems to be telling religion to "suck it". ^^
    Some of the lines are rather obscure or just metaphoric, though: "Inebriated leather-host" and "Shards of empty battle grey/Poisoned beasts are out to play" Any ideas?

    General CommentThey sampled the drumroll part at the beginning and used it in the song 'Jihad'.
