No son of mine will ever do
The work of villains, the will of fools
If you believe it, it must be true
No son of mine, no son of mine

No son of mine will ever need
To beg forgiveness, no wicked deed
Head full of evil, heart full of greed
No son of mine, no son of mine

Here we are, living dead
Hand to God with one foot in the grave
Age of lost innocence
Don't forget what your good book says

No son of mine
No son of mine
No son of mine
No son of mine

No son of mine will ever be
Under the power vested in thee
March into slaughter down on his knees
No son of mine, no son of mine

Here we are, living dead
Hand to God with one foot in the grave
Age of lost innocence
Don't forget what your good book says

No son of mine
No son of mine
No son of mine
No son of mine, oh

No son of mine will ever say
Words of illusion, oh, this I pray
Heretofore taking my name in vain
No son of mine, no son of mine

Here we are, living dead
Hand to God with one foot in the grave
Age of lost innocence
Don't forget what your good book says

No son of mine
No son of mine
No son of mine
No son of mine
No son of mine
No son of mine
No son of mine
No son of mine, oh

    General CommentWhat the artist means
    The premier rock stars are back on this one, they are belting the lyrics with such reckless abandon. They are hitting the high notes, flexing all over the record with the drums, guitars, and other super loud instruments. The track is about the desire for their sons to be independent and not let down their illustrious audiences. The track sees the band return to their squealing roots as they leave no stones left unturned in this performance for the ages. The track seems perfectly suited for live arenas as the majority of the track revolves around the title, the rest just come naturally.

    What the song means to me
    If the band was looking for a track that will take the post-Covid-19 American by storm, they just might have found one in this. The track is super turned up, it is ultra-loud, it sees them double down on the elements that made them so well-loved, and they added something extra. The song might not be a lyrical gem, but that it lacks in lyricism it more than made for in energy and enthusiasm. The track is one of the recent high notes of the band, it's a reminder that they can still rock with the best. I will give this song a rating of 7/10.
