"Sacrifice" (Flipper) – 6:07

The original version appears on Flipper's 1984 LP Gone Fishin' and also appears on the 1988 LP Sex Bomb, Baby!

Melvins version originally from Lysol, 1992 on Boner Records.

Lyrics

Can you hear the war cry?

It's time to enlist

The people speak as one

The cattle, the crowd

Those too afraid to live

Demand a sacrifice

Of your life


Can you smell their stinking breath?

Listen to them

Wheezing and gasping and

Chanting their slogans

It's a grave digger's song

Praising God & State

So the Nation will live

So we all can remain as cattle.


[extra lyrics from Flipper's version]:

Can you smell the fresh blood

Steaming into the soil?

As our patriots,

Fathers, mothers and lovers

Admire the military style

Praising God and the State

Crying tears of pride

For all the fools slaughtered

For the maimed, the dying

And the dead

So the Nation will live

So the people will remain as cattle.
