Blood Red

Track 2: Blood Red

LYRICS

Peaceful confrontation meet war machine
Seizing all civil liberties
Honest ballotation among banshee
Spilling blood on humanity
You cannot hide the face of death
Oppression ruled by bloodshed

No disguise can deface evil
The massacre of innocent people

Deviated lies fear blinding your eyes
Enforcing their truth through a gun
Aggressive discipline and barbaric control
Thousands of people cannot be wrong
You cannot hide the face of death
Oppression ruled by bloodshed

No disguise can deface evil
Stains the primitive sickle blood red

Growing opposition with words as ammunition
Expressions of life's liberties
Aggressive discipline and barbaric control
Spilling blood throughout humanity
You cannot hide the face of death
Oppression rules by bloodshed

No disguise can deface evil
Stains the primitive sickle blood red

Reviews for this Track

This is hands down my favorite fuckin Slayer song. I always found it poignant when it was first released but after 8 long ass years of Bush and our government’s continued commitment to global warfare and the unadulterated slaughter of human lives both hear and abroad the song sadly remains relevant today. Critics may bemoan the band's often morbid and demonic screeds but no one does social commentary better than Slayer.

Holy hell, Jeff was such a riff-meister back in this era!! Another killer tune from a great album Smiling

"I think the church and the religion right now have a lot more to be worried about than Slayer." ~ KK
