About War Is All We Know

"War Is All We Know" is the second track in GWAR's 2006 album Beyond Hell and can be considered the first actual song in the album as the previous track was merely an introduction designed to build up tension for this track. This track puts emphasis on the thrash metal style GWAR had been developing for about 5 years previous to Beyond Hell and features fast-paced riffing by Balsac the Jaws of Death and Flattus Maximus as well as barked vocals by Oderus Urungus. The song, however, breaks in the middle into a slow, heavily distorted, dissonant interlude in which the drums by Jizmak Da Gusha become most notable. The song then speeds up again and returns to a similar riff as the one present at the start of the song before ending and leading into the following track.

They came from the sun
From the east from the west all around
And so fate's die is cast
They marshaled their forces and foundus at last.
So it's come to this
The child is the destroyer
The young god comes to slay
WAR
Son, kill the father
For blackness is all that I crave
Shells explode across my hide
Take me death, I am your slave
For I don't have a soul
And I don't have a heart
Come then and face me
But first you must suffer my wrath

HATRED OF ALL THINGS ALIVE
War is all we know

they say that war is a last resort
For me it's the only way
I have tried reading them Poetry
It suits me better to slay
All that I touch seems to break in my hands
Then it just bursts into flames
The piteous pleadings as innocents die
Only an odor reamains

So burn the bitter butter
Break out our murder machines
Bring me my scabbard my halber, my hauberk
Fetch me my enchanted greaves
My walls they are melting
The drugs they aren't helping it is the time for the old gods to die
To arms is the only cry

HATRED OF ALL THINGS ALIVE
War is all we know
The humans must feast on their Gods
We know it fucking blows
Hatred is a seed that's easy to sow buckets of blood will help it to grow
And raised on high, the fetid throne
Death is Fate's master, he sits all alone...
The say war is all we know
If only that were true
No matter how I work my schedule
There's always other things that I do
But excuse me now, there's a tank at the door
And that slave's head just rooled 'cross the floor...
He tries to say something and that something is puke
Right about then the pigs set off a nuke
War is all we know
Hatred
When I said I loved war I lied
It fucking sucks on the losing side
And speaking of which, my face is on fire!
A lightning withdraw! we quickly retire!
A flury of carnage, my brainpan is nicked!
To my unending shame my ass just got kicked!
And as the shells fall in a relentless hail
The fortress was gutted and we had to bail...

HATRED OF ALL THINGS ALIVE
War is all we know
The humans must feast on their Gods
WE KNOW IT FUCKING BLOWS HATRED OF ALL THINGS ALIVE
War is all we know
The humans must feast on their Gods
War is all we know.
