Now You've Got Something To Die For Lyrics - Lamb Of God

Review The Song (44)



Now you've got something to die for
Now you've got something to die for
Infidel, Imperial
Lust for blood, a blind crusade
Apocalyptic, we count the days

Bombs to set the people free, blood to feed the dollar tree
Flags for coffins on the screen, oil for the machine
Army of liberation, gunpoint indoctrination
The fires of sedition
Fulfill the prophecy

Now you've got something to die for
Now you've got something to die for

Send the children to the fire, sons and daughters stack the pyre
Stoke the flame of the empire, live to lie another day
Face of hypocrisy, raping democracy
Apocalyptic, we count the days

We'll never get out of this hole, until we've dug our own grave
And drag the rest down with us, the burning home of the brave
Burn
Now you've got something to die for
Now you've got something to die for

Just so you youngins know, this song has nothing to so with the cold war or WWII. The lyrics aren't so literal to mean "sending people in concentration camps to fire chambers". The lyrics "send the children to the fire" means sending our young (18 year olds) to die in a war started by our corporate machine. It is a war for oil and greed that is made possible by using our children to increase our influence over the rest of the world (they are stoking the flames of our empire i.e. making us bigger and more influential). This shit isn't gonna stop until we fall and drag the rest of the world down with us, much like the Roman Empire and the onset of the dark ages. Also this is much like what has happened to the world economy in the last year due to corruption in the U.S. financial system. That kinda makes these guys prophets. ANYWAY, this song is 100% about the Iraq war, as is much of this CD.

Cold War was mostly just blind threats of nuclear war. if the american government gets into an nuclear war, they will blow up the earth, killing them selves,"And drag the rest down with [them]." Wrong. I agree that the cold war was lots of empty threats, but we would never use SNWs because of MAD. But we gotta watch out for terrorists getting nuclear weapons, because they're willing to destroy the world for their ideas.



A song with morals | Reviewer: DemonPeinDivine | 12/3/10

knowledge in the lyrics speaking of the hypocritical democratic government who speak of peace yet participate in wars,
EX:war with irag for oil "oil for the machine"
infidel: war on "terrorism"
send the children to the fire: WW2 nazi exicutions
we'll never get out of this hole until we've dug our own graves: WW2 prisoners of concentration camps were forced to dig their own grave which was alledgedly the only way out

dont feel like typing anymore but great song and in my opinion in contrary to popular belief metallica sucks horrible band cant get into their music maybe because ima black 14 year old



todays world | Reviewer: seann | 6/29/10

I think this song speaks of our goverments wrong doing and a new world war to come and how they make our young go to fight the war. Our goverment has a lust for blood and it is suppose to be in the name of freedom such a cliche. LOG RULZ



war? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/9/10

in this song, it seems as if the lyric "We'll never get out of this hole, until we've dug our own grave
And drag the rest down with us" refers to the way the cold war was fought. sorry to go all history freak here, but the Cold War was mostly just blind threats of nuclear war. if the american government gets into an nuclear war, they will blow up the earth, killing them selves,"And drag the rest down with [them]." just my view on this amazing song by one of the worlds greatest bands. btw im 16 and from canada.



Simple | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/15/10

It's not that complicated. Sons and daughters? Its not about Germans in WW2, hahahaha. Young people always fight the wars, its just symbolism. Any war ever has composed mainly of young soldiers, drafts for example one of may causes. Its about war, this song specifically about the US/Irag war, and accusations of imperialism and hypocrisy concerning American politics, military, and government.
