"NWO" as written by and Al/barker Jourgensen....
All the locals hide their tears of regret
Open fire 'cause I love you to death
Sky high, with a heartache of stone
You'll never see me 'cause I'm always alone

How to love without a trace of dissent
I'll buy the torture 'cause you pay for the rent
Tied high with a broken command
You're all alone to the promised land

I'm in love with this malicious intent
You've been taken but you don't know it yet
What you will know must never live to be found
'Cause it's the subject of the eyes of the clown

    General CommentThe voice saying "it's OK! it's alright!" is Dennis Hopper from Apocalypse Now, when Capt. Willard finally arrives at Col. Kurtz's loony stronghold. Kurtz sacrifices people and leaves their heads and bodies lying around his camp. Ministry means Hopper's indication of safety by saying "It's OK! it's alright!" to Capt. Willard is just as rediculous as this "new world order" Bush mentions, and its implications on our future as a species.

    General CommentThe voice in this song that keeps repeating(N.W.O.) is George Bush the 41st pesident. it was from his inagural speech when he talked about the fall of the evil empire and the vision of the new world order refering to the wto and a global economy. The 41st president did have a military atitude; Panama, Somalia and Iraq I think ministry had beef with this and thats what they were adressing. I must say I think with exception of Panama the other 2 wars were justified.

    General CommentEven if you accept war as human nature you should still fear the New World Order. They don't want war; they want controlled extermination. They want to herd us all and pick us off one by one, after we're already disarmed and lost of rights. Once martial law is imposed, the civilians will be pitted against law enforcement and military (after confiscating all civilian weapons.) Think The Civil War meets World War 2. And considering that the people involved control the ONLY 2 political parties we have to choose from, there's nothing politically that we can do about it. We just have to wait for the inevitable nightmare to manifest, and hope we're not one of the many slaughtered.

    General CommentI disagree, i dont think any of the wars were justified, and the lyrics epitomise the futility of the war.

    General CommentFor me the lyrics say something completely different then the voice clips in the song. The lyrics seem to be talking about social dysfunction and how more and more people are lacking the will to socialize, but the voice clips of George Bush are from his inaugural speech about how he's going to change the world (but obviously didn't). Maybe they're related... I'm not 100% sure on this song. Great tune though!

    General Commentso hopper is like bush, assuring us that everything is fine and under control, its alright, even though theres dead bodies everywhere and shit.

    then the lyrics. not sure about the first verse - maybe all the lyrics are kinda like the conscience of a soldier who feels he has to do his duty and fight the war and participate in the system, even though it bothers him, but it eventually makes him crazy. so war def a theme, bc it is necessary for the NWO agenda to prevail. sky high, like a bomber, always alone, reclusive cause of mental issues retreating into himself.

    second verse - now we are talking about being part of it, the system, military, society - participating in society - forcing himself to love what hes doing without a trace of dissent for the system - its like torture but it is his job, it pays. becoming reclusive in this promised land, the new world orders creation.

    by the end he loves it. your born into it without knowing it, they have you. but this knowledge must not be found or learned by others, else they kill you. its the knowledge that can be seen in the eyes of the drowned.

    then bush talking about the NWO.

    you hear last rights being screamed in the background because this NWO system will be the death of so many.

    Song MeaningI think anyone who is around 25 years or older gets this song and who and what it was written about.
    The funny thing is while it was written to bash bush #1 (and No W about bush #2) the real new world order is in the white house right now, and its NOT bush. Think hard about what is going on right now, government basically owning mortgage companies, banks, and once private companies, the liberal media whoring themselves to Obama and the uber-liberal left, the liberal schools and universities shoving Obama and the uber-left down the students throats. This wasn't a changing of the guard that hapens every so many voting cycles, this was a damn hostal takeover that was planned for the last 20 years. If the government owns private business, banks, and the military, they own EVERYTHING in this country and ALL OF US.
    I think that in a few years, the members of Ministry and a lot of the country are gonna realize that this song was about 15 years ahead of its time, and it should have been written about Obama and what's going on right now.
    Don't get me wrong, I'm not a bush supporter at all, I hated what he did with Iraq, and how him and the uber right trampled all over the constitution. Obama and his thugs are just replacing Bush and his thugs, and the citizens of this country pay the price no matter what party is in power.
