The fire dies on its own, leaving us to ourselves but not exactly alone
I think that something is out there waiting, anticipation has grown
The air as black as can be, can't even see that my hand is in front of me
I'm overhearing a whisper, "They won't escape until the blood is set free"

So turn back, the silence is deafening
Turn back, don't let them see you again
They make the rounds at the midnight hour
And on the clock it's just a minute away

So we're hours awake and our only mistake is we bleed
And the hunger for the living helps them hunt it with the greatest of ease

Now I'm finding my friends, Hanging from trees, made a bed of a barbed wire fence
I'm on the loose with my neck in the noose but hey, I enjoy the intense

So turn back, the silence is deafening
Turn back, don't let them see you again
They make the rounds at the midnight hour
And on the clock it's just a minute away

So we're hours awake and our only mistake is we bleed
When the hunger for the living helps them hunt it with the greatest of ease

No experience could ever match the sight of when is a person is through
If it's the last thing I will do, I'll be the one that will escape from Hellview
And I will

So turn back, the silence is deafening
Turn back, don't let them see you again
They make the rounds at the midnight hour
And on the clock it's just a minute away

So turn back, the silence is deafening
Turn back, don't let them see you again
They make the rounds at the midnight hour
And on the clock it's just a minute away

So we're hours awake and our only mistake is we bleed
When the hunger for the living helps them hunt it with the greatest of ease

No experience could ever match the sight of when is a person is through
If it's the last thing I will do, I'll be the one that will escape from Hellview
And I will

    "both songs are based off of the fictitious town of hellview. "escape..." follows tha outline of several campers lost in hellview sitting around a campfire, but after the fire goes out they are discovered, stalked, and eliminated slasher-style."

    I thought it was just about a fictional town called Hellview where tourists die. The song is linked to 96 quite bitter beings.

    It could be about a life thats just so bad and messed up that you want out but you just cant seem to get away from it?

    One of my favorite songs off the new cd-"Infiltrate-Destroy-Rebuild". It's a continuation of "96 Quite Bitter Beings" off the "Volume 1" disc.

    this is my favorite song off IDR and I'd love to see a video for this, just imagine the band running from Zombies or whatever, and then during the noose line Chad starts rocking out while being hanged. meanwhile, the rest of the band turns one by one into zombies...it'd be sa-weet.

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."
