Like most people you’ve probably never actually listened to the lyrics of heavy metal ( and even if you did you couldn’t make out what they were singing ) but the basic premise is that Godless Totalitarian Governments will stop at nothing to achieve their goals, even killing innocent men, women, and children. In fact killing all men, women, and children is probably at the top of their list. Think of the classics like Black Sabbath’s “War Pigs”:
Generals gathered in their masses
Just like witches at black masses
Evil minds that plot destruction
Sorcerers of death’s construction
In the fields the bodies burning
As the war machine keeps turning
Death and hatred to mankind
Poisoning their brainwashed minds… Oh Lord yeah!
Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to the poor, yeah
Time will tell on their power minds
Making war just for fun
Treating people just like pawns in chess
Wait ’till their Judgment day comes, yeah!
or maybe something from Megadeath….
People have round shoulders from fairing heavy loads
And the soldiers liberate them, laying mines along their roads
Sorrow paid for valor is too much to recall
Of the countless corpses piled up along the wailing wall
Melting down all metals, turning plows and sheafs to swords
Shun words of the Bible, we need implements of war
Chalklines and red puddles of those who have been slain
Destiny, that crooked schemer, says the dead shall rise again
Where do we go from here?
And should we really care
The end is finally here
God have mercy!
Dave Mustaine is just telling it like it is man. And you can tell all the politicians are lying…their lips are moving!
Do you believe things went down they way say? and even if they did is killing more people gonna solve anything?
