Gematria (The Killing Name) Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
12/08/73
That was all I got and now you got me
Verse 2
All I ever really wanted was to take the blame
I will go down in history and not down in flames
Meningitis,
I will survive this,
Dry sockets and a schizophrenic crisis
The time of the nine has begun
Get out of the way or you will suffer as one
Verse 3
This is so typical,
Apocalyptical,
Hanging on abysmal release,
Jesus,
I don't need this,
Don't wanna be this,
Icon in the making,
My hands are fucking shaking
Verse 4
What if god doesn't care?
What if god doesn't care?
Verse 5
Remember,
Surrender,
The time is now
Continue,
We're in you,
And we will burn your cities down
Verse 6
America is a killing name
It doesn't feel or discriminate
Life is just a killing field
It's all that's left, nothing's real
Throw away your disposable past
And fall apart like a cigarette ash
We are the fatal and vital ones of the world
And we will burn your cities down
Verse 7
What if god doesn't care?
What if god doesn't care?
Verse 8
America is a killing name
It doesn't feel or discriminate
Life is just a killing field
It's all that's left, nothing's real
Throw away your disposable past
And fall apart like a cigarette ash
We are the fatal and vital ones of the world
And we will burn your cities down
Down,
Verse 9
We will burn your cities down
We will burn your cities down
Verse 10
We will burn your cities down
Feed the hungry, feed them shit
Feed them bones and politics
You wanna revolutionize?
Be specific and believe your eyes
Start a war in another backyard
And we'll destroy your house of cards
Give me a minute and I'll change your mind
Give me a bullet and I'll change your life
Verse 11
Remember,
Surrender,
The time is now
Continue,
We're in you,
And we will burn your cities down
Verse 12
America is a killing name
It doesn't feel or discriminate
Life is just a killing field
It's all that's left, nothing's real
Throw away your disposable past
And fall apart like a cigarette ash
We are the fatal and vital ones of the world
And we will burn your cities down, down, down
We will burn your cities down, down, down
We will burn your cities down
America, what if "god" doesn't care?
