Gemini Lyrics - Slayer

Review The Song (1)

[(Music: King, Lyrics: Araya) (C)1996 Molosser Music / SS810 Music ASCAP]

Endure the pain
You know my name
I am your soul insane

I am no one
No one who cares
I am your soul despair

Your fear deceives
Leaving an easy prey

Consume your mind
A power so divine
Will take you and rape you blind

Gemini master of demise
Your death is my salvation
To a kingdom mine
sponsored links
My lord is my light
The master of darkness
Your death is my salvation
To a kingdom mine

You look at me with eyes of fate
And see the graphic truth

Your ignorance cannot shield you
From your naked abuse
Numbling of your moral sense
Facing reality
That life is unconditional
And death is only the beginning

The pain will never end...

Walking slow, breathing heavy
You could see death sweat
How it shined
An argument out of control in my mind

I am here for the sole purpose of your death
Walking slow breathing heavy
You can see death sweat.

I am here for the sole purpose of your death
Look into my eyes and see the revelation of your demise
Feel the pain that stares at the center of your heart
Reflections of my soul
Reflections of the dark

If these lyrics were more coherent, this song would be a classic... | Reviewer: Troy | 11/11/12

although in fairness to Araya and King, who co-wrote this song, the Zodiac killer's letters to the press and police weren't very coherent. Slayer, to their credit, habitually ties occult, cult, and orthodox religion together in ways that slip under the radar of critics. This song's title is a direct reference to the serial killer in William Peter Blatty's sequel to The Exorcist, Legion, which is in itself a reference to the infamous unsolved Zodiac murders in San Francisco.

The genealogy of metal like this ought to be obvious; it harkens back to Black Sabbath. And it should come as no surprise, Geezer Butler and Tom Araya are both Catholics. And now for the total irony, King and Butler have now been the official constants in the evolution of Slayer. Slayer is concerned with the problem of evil, and in my opinion this song is one of the best musical reflections on the serial killer.

The lyrics reflect the ideology, intent, and derangement of the Zodiac and the Gemini killers in a way that makes me cringe, and that was probably what Araya and King intended. Evil is a part of life, Slayer describes in way that aren't always successful, with notable exceptions such as this track. Art reflects life.
