10-2-08 Slaves and Heroes

Posted by Sean on October 2, 2008

Well, Shanoah, it looks like the whole bailout thing is going to go through. I could say something about it, but I’ve been spending way too much time on the blog lately. It’s time to get out and enjoy some of my economic freedom while I still have it. So I’ll let the music speak for me.

This is Samael’s Slavocracy, off 2007’s Solar Soul.

Lyrics here.

Why so many would have to pay for just one man to stand his way
Why so often no one denies primacy of one over others
Is there not enough self-consciousness in everyone to make him real
Haven’t we all inside of us what makes a man worth being one

How i wish that i could take you by the hand
Lead you through blurry views and
Give you access to your own self


And here’s something from Lemmy, the iron man of metal, and Mötörhead: Heroes, off 2008’s Motorizer. Normally I don’t go in for this LOTR brave-Viking-warrior shit. But it just fits, you know?

Lyrics here.

One day men will look back here,
To see the bloody day,
When we stood at the edge and fought,
And no-one ran away,
The story will get bigger,
As it’s handed down the years,
And so pass into legend,
To tell what happened here
