Let Us Slay by Gwar

Don't give them a sword and then not let them use it
Or sent them to war, and then make them lose it
This is a bomb, don't want to defuse it
Death is the answer, go forth and choose it

Let us slay
Let them slay, let them slay [x3]
The lust for blood won't go away

Let us slay
Let them slay, let them slay [x3]

It is the era of calamity
And I see this with perfect clarity
And there never was an illusion of parity
I've got no time for your crippled christ

We have no need for your crippled christ
And we never lacked for your advice
We don't have to hide our genocide
They'll fear us more when they know the we don't lie

It's gone beyond hatred this time
You love death, yet call it a crime
I twist the dagger that's deep in your guts
I'll put an end to it this time

[Solo]

On your knees - Pray
It is your destiny
On your feet - Slay
Obedience through slavery

Don't give them a sword and then not let them use it
Or sent them to war, and then make them lose it
This is a bomb, don't want to defuse it
Death is the answer, death is the answer

Total control
We own your soul

No time for life
Time for the knife
Time for the sword
Fetus is cored
Total mutation
Necro-mutilation
The perfect life form
Born for porn

Let us slay
Let them slay, let them slay [x3]
The lust for blood won't go away

Let us slay
Let them slay, let them slay [x3]

We've got no time for your crippled christ
And we never lacked for your advice
Lie after lie, lie, lie
I do believe its almost time

The crippled christ, the crippled christ
The crippled christ, the crippled christ
The crippled christ, the crippled christ
I do believe its almost time

You're always calling for the sacrifice
And the body count is very nice
Lie after lie, lie, lie, lie
I do believe its time do die

POETRY... PURE POETRY.

See... that's the type of shakespearean poetry I'm talking about. In this song the band is clearly comparing and contrasting the complexities of a culture that reports a facade separation of church and state yet its very structure was built on an integration of religious values with laws and policy, which then feeds into the rationalization of aggression based approach against perceived enemies of state domestic and abroad. The lyrics go on to discuss how such policy leads to a crumbling infrastructure and neglected populous that end up coring fetuses with efficiency seen only in chris' apple death machine.

Bravo, gwar.... bravo

Wow....you actually made me think there may be substance to this. No the other guy can split his gibberish.

I agree there is truth in this song. It touches on the hipocracy and expresses anger at the state of our world. The monster masks in the video are an extension of the way these dudes feel about our world. They are clearly angry and this is how they choose to express their feelings. I agree with their notion that death is the answer to this problem. If we indulge in our deep rooted and painful feelings of rage against the cruelty of the world and act out the insanity of the collective human state of mind. Perhaps it will help drive us closer to be inevitable change towards awakening that we must go through in order to change, grow and ultimately survive as a species. Having said that I will also say that this music is pure garbage.
