Give me your faith, something I can believe in
And you'll be my family, my brother, my friend
Tell me a truth that I find not deceiving
Teach me a lesson that I understand

Build me a shelter, a place I can dwell in
Show me a future that I can enjoy
Give me a reason and I'll be your fellow
Show me the target I have to destroy

Exterminate annihilate destroy

Show me my leader and I'll pledge obedience
Whisper the name of the enemy mine
Blessed be my fate and my tools of expedience
I'm going to fulfill what's my mission divine

Exterminate annihilate destroy

    General CommentIn my opinion, this song is about faith, (extremist)driving people towards acts of violence. It also appears to state the basic motivation of these groups. I.E. the repetition of the line
    "exterminate annihilate destroy, "
    In what seems like a robotic tone of voice

    It's samples of the Daleks catchphrase from the TV show 'Doctor who'. : )

    General CommentI view this song somewhat as a futuristic version of the holocaust during WW2. Showing how if a large group of people are so low they are willing to do just about anything to make there life better but even moe so meaningful. On there website there is a quote from the band that says
    "while we do occasionally refer to violence or destruction, we do not do so to justify or praise such actions. on the contrary, we only mean to describe circumstances and psychological or social factors that can mislead human beings to desecrate life and humanity."

    General Commentso it IS daleks?
    I thought so. haha.
    the lyrics sound a lot like daleks, except that daleks are never obedient and they don't have brothers or anything unless you're a dalek, and I don't know if that's exactly "brothers".
    but what with wanting a mission and people to destroy, sounds exactly like a dalek. and even the religion thing, in bad wolf/parting of the ways, they were kind of like that.

    but I really like this song, I liked it even before I thought about any of this, before I had watched that show.

    General CommentIt's the Dalek voice alright. But the Daleks were an extended metaphor for Nazi Germany to begin with...
