This is a call to arms,
Will you stand beside me?
This is our time to fight,
No more compromising
And this blackened heart will sing
For sad solidarity

Halo, over our demise
Following a god so blind
Sallow, in their sickening
Swallow not, the shit they feed

This is a right to life,
Not the Religious Right’s act
This is abortion’s knife,
Aiming at the womb of
The Christian conspiracy
So open thine eyes and see, the

Halo, over our demise
Following a god so blind
Sallow, in their sickening
Swallow not, the shit they feed

Our time will come, our time will come
Our time is now, our time is now

And I won’t pray for you
And I won't pray for you
And I won't pray for you

Halo
Follow
Sallow
Swallow
Halo, over our demise
Following a god so blind
Sallow, in their sickening
Swallow not, the shit they feed

Your words will never hold us down
Prayer’s won’t be spared on you
Satisfaction denied
‘Til you’re dead and gone
Gone
Dead and gone!
You’re gone!

    I love these guys. All their songs relate to me in some way.
    Halo has an obvious anti-religion message. Specifically catholicism and/or possibly greek orthodox. It states "the christian conspiracy... " and the video depicts a leader of a religious group that (to me) is the pope.
    However, christianity and organized religions are two very different things. The former is faith based, and the latter is man-made mind-control corruption.
    Never the less, machine head own!!

    The meaning and message of this song is bane...
    The one you fallow and glorifide will determine your fate,
    Fallow hate and destruction, then hate and destruction its all you'll get

    This is such an awesome, the riff is just immense
    It's obvious that this song is an attack on organised religion, using God to put their points across the the wanting, God-fearing masses of the world.
    it's just an awesome song by an incredible band.
