They should play this song live.

Great lyrics. Even an acoustic version would sound nice.

Love this song! One of the best of the Machina era. I wish they would have released it as a single and did a video of a giant white spider destroying a fucking city. Ah, one can dream. I'd love to hear it played live. Not sure about an acoustic version though. I feel like this is one of those songs like Tales of a Scorched Earth that only works loud and heavy.

I haven't listened to this very often. It's ok.

Like White Spider a lot, good chugging cyber metal! One of those tracks like Innosence that doesn't get talked about often.

I'm sure I read that they rehearsed this at some point on the Machina tour? Something about Billy getting handed a CD-R of them going over it by one of the crew?

The entire middle breakdown section of the song is unintelligible. I think spfc had some of the lyrics as "you've gotta want the rack/scream you're not black (...) I'm gonna swim to Sweden/fuck the enemy" at one point.

I used to listen to it on repeat, loved it to bits. Tend to skip it now because I overplayed it, but it's a banger.

LOL, I think he's saying "beyond belief" but... it is a song where he talks about spiders crawling up inside a woman, so ya never know. I mean, I always assumed that was a metaphor for... something but maybe Bill was being literal. I mean, if I knew someone who let spiders crawl up inside her, I'd probably write a fucked up song about it.

Imagine boning her and getting your helmet bitten. No thanks.
