Perhaps they wanted to put more of a 9/11 message in there.. who knows.

Check out these lyrics though. (Formatting mine)

It burns deep down inside of me
we have ourselves to blame
not questioning, accepted as the truth

debate this fight it's just cause
the facts do not support theirs
to liberate a people
and rid them of tyrant rule

is it time to make a change
are we closer than before
can we help them break away
are we profiting from war
it's time to make a change

Intrigued
Got your attention - Deceived
Since the inception - Our brave
Fright for what reason

Compelled
Can we clean up this mess?
The loss of loved ones
A perverse request
They continue the same rhetoric
These derelicts that profit
win or lose


(Fans chanting)
Time for Change
Fight the Fear
Find the Truth!
Time for change

The only thing
that I believe
will help us see this through is faith

pray they will forgive
forgive our arrogance
so we can make it right
Right what they have wronged

See you sweat
Unexpected, controversial
Get used to it
Things are gonna get personal
Your sympathy
A pitiful display you stutter
Your empathy
Means nothing if there is no honor
Responsible
Of this you are incapable
We implicate
INcriminate - Exacerbate - Too much at stake!

Our fathers, mothers
sisters, brothers
Sons and Daughters
forced
Perpetuating their ideals
A mindless act
To stay the course

Is our patience wearing thin
It's time to make a change

Time for change
Fight the fear
Find the truth
Time for change

Come pull the sheet over my eyes
so I can sleep tonight
despite what I have seen today
I've found you guilty of a crime
of sleeping at a time
when you should have been wide awake

WIDE AWAKE!!!!!!!

The one that came out this week "Systematic Chaos"

My friend told me it sucked, but he's must be smoking crack!!!

I can't say it's their best necessarily, but it's DAMN GOOD!!

P.S. get the special edition if you want the 90 min documentary "Chaos in Progress".

I'm a dork so I like that sort of stuff (and I record music so it's good to see how it's done)

i'm starting to record some demos so that I can send them to record companies to get financed for time in an actual recording studio of higher quality... right now, just creating stuff in my basement..

I know, being the musician, the singer, the engineer, and producer is a lot of time to spend on one project... and then perhaps to need to do it all over again at a later time... sux, to say the least, but I don't have the cash to go in to a studio and spend like two weeks there ya know? Nor do I have enough material yet for a full album, so two weeks wouldn't even be enough...

Do you record your own stuff or what? Do you have anything you could link to?

Thanks

If you're going to compare it to something I think it would be way more applicable to Iraq than 9/11.
REICHSTAG 911 : PART I : THE NEW WORLD ORDER & 9/11

REICHSTAG 911 : PART II : THE DEATH OF FREEDOM IN AMERICA
With such intense technical planning in other aspects do you not think they would have said we shouldn't :

A) hit the (light) poles
B ) blow up the WTC
C) blow up WTC7
D) fake hijackers
E) bomb the GWB bridge
F) fake bin laden taps

because the guys on the Internet will figure it out?
See if you can guess the correct answer for what came out of a "9/11 Truther"!!

I'm wondering what the song is about. I got the CD, but I haven't been too impressed. I'm not much of a DT fan though, I only really like 6DOIT. Some of the songs sound pretty cool though such as dark eternal night and repentance.
