The years, they passed and so did we
Yet, resistance would be formed


Is one of the most amazing lines ever. The build up to it is glorious, the way the melody hesitates a bit when he sings about resistance and that beautiful, BEAUTIFUL laconic observation of life and the ruthless passing of all things. Beautiful song, beautiful band.

the best cover ever

edit: lyrics

I am the one, Orgasmatron, the outstretched grasping hand
My image is of agony, my servants rape the land
Obsequious and arrogant, clandestine and vain
Two thousand years of misery, of torture in my name
Hypocrisy made paramount, paranoia the law
My name is called religion; sadistic, sacred whore




I twist the truth, I rule the world, my crown is called deceit
I am the emperor of lies, you grovel at my feet
I rob you and I slaughter you, your downfall is my gain
And still you play the sycophant and revel in your pain
And all my promises are lies, all my love is hate
I am the politician and I decide your fate

I march before a martyred world, an army for the fight
I speak of great heroic days, of victory and might
I hold a banner drenched in blood, I urge you to be brave
I lead you to your destiny, I lead you to your grave
Your bones will build my palaces, your eyes will stud my crown
For I am Mars, the God of War, and I will cut you down

Hands down the best song this century. "Arrowheads" gets memed to death, but the lyrics backing that up are just unbelievable:

But I didn't, no-one ever does
And I would, no-one ever will
Can't you see it's all flown out of my hands
(Thank God that's over)
And our clothes are all too often ripped
And our teeth are all too often gnashed
And it lasts as long as it possibly can


Fuck the abyss.
