Take A Bow

Lyrics

Corrupt
You corrupt
Bring corruption to all that you touch

Hold
You behold
And beholden for all that you've done

And spell
Cast a spell
Cast a spell on the country you run

And risk
You will risk
You will risk all their lives and their souls

And burn
You will burn
You will burn in hell, yeah you'll burn in hell
Yeah you'll burn in hell
Yeah you'll burn in hell
For your sins

And our freedom's consuming itself
What we've become
It's contrary to what we want

Take a bow

Death
You bring death, and destruction to all that you touch

Pay
You must pay
You must pay for your crimes against the earth

Yeah hex
Feed the hex
Feed the hex on the country you love

Now beg
You will beg
You will beg for their lives and their souls

Now burn
You will burn
You will burn in hell, yeah you'll burn in hell
Yeah you'll burn in hell
Yeah you'll burn in hell
Yeah you'll burn in hell
Yeah you'll burn in hell
For your sins

Extra information

Meaning

Chris: We wrote it at the end of the Absolution sessions, and it sounds similar [to Absolution tracks]. It has evolved a lot since then, but itís principle remains the same: a change of periodic agreements which are at the brink of exploding. Its structure is mathematical, the main idea being a formula with neither chorus nor verse. Domís never played like that, with very jazzy rhythms, slow ones, followed by more chaotic bits integrated into the whole. (from musewiki.org)



Matt, on the question of who he his talking to in this song (hence 'you'll burn in hell'): It's basically about the "puppet masters", the people who are behind our leaders, the globalists, the clandestine organizations like the NSC, the FBI, CIA. They're kinda making up stories, send it to the press, and then the media brings it to let us believe it. The next thing is we're in the middle of a world war. The kind of people who manipulate the truth for the purposes of a one world government.

And they haven't payed for the consequences. (hear the complete interview on xfm.co.uk.)
