"Roots Bloody Roots" as written by Massimiliano A. Cavalera, Andreas Rudolf Kisser, Igor Cavalera and Paulo Xisto Jr. Pinto....
Roots Bloody Roots [Repeat: x3]
Roots Bloody

I believe in our fate
We don't need to fake
It's all we want to be
Watch me Freak!

I say
We're growing every day
Getting stronger in every way
I'll take you to a place
Where we shall find our

Roots Bloody Roots [Repeat: x4]

Rain bring me the strength
Is breeding me this way
To get to another day
And all I want to see
Set Us free

Why can't you see
Can't you feel
This is real

I pray we don't need to change
Our ways to be saved
That all we want to be
Watch us Freak!

    General CommentNow here´s something I don´t understand, why has this song become so damn popular? Roots aint even a real killer album like Beneath The Remains (witch really ruled), actually the only song I like from this album is ratamahatta, but I just don´t understand what´s so great about this song - It only sounds boring

    General CommentTHIS SONG IS PRETTY GOOD... ALTHOUGH I RECON CHAOS AD AND BENEATH THE REMAINS ARE BOTH BETTER ALBUMS THAN ROOTS... ROOTS BLOODY ROOTS IS THE ONLY GOOD 1 ON ROOTS... I THINK RATAMAHATTA IS PRETTY CRAP HONESTLY

    General CommentI like this song and the album, but it's by far the weakest Max-era Sepultura album.

    General CommentThe song is about knowing ourselves, our origins, blood, culture, and individuality, and being true to it. Posers, followers, or sellouts would likely never understand, so I guess that includes the majority of society. Never heard Pavarotti's, but prob be an interesting rendition. Actually heard Throwdown do this one on "Sounds of the Underground" tour as a tribute for Dimebag Darrell. Sepultura shoulda changed their name when Max left, but Cavaleira Conspiracy sure brings back memories of better days. Max is a bad MF who has made some brilliant contributions to music in the past 20+ years, and Iggor made me wanna start playing some real drums, not the "Lars" style.

    Song MeaningTo thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man.
