The Offspring Lyrics


I am the one
Camouflage and guns
Risk my life
To keep my people from harm

Authority
Vested in me
I sacrifice
With my brothers in arms

Trough this doorway
What's on the other side
Never knowing
Exactly what I'll find
Locked and loaded
Voices screaming
Let's go!
Come on do it!
Here we go

[Chorus: x2]
Take a life
That others may live
Oh that's just the way it goes
It's playing over and over in my head
Where it'll end
Nobody knows

Stay the course
Reasonable force
I believe I serve a greater good

Smoke and dust
Enemies are crushed
Nothing left
Where a man once stood

Trough this doorway
What's on the other side
Never knowing
Exactly what I'll find
Locked and loaded
Voices screaming
Let's go
But I'm just doing what I'm told

[Chorus: x2]

Bang bang it hammers in my head
Bang bang it hammers in my head
Bang bang it hammers in my head
In my head
In my head

Yeah though I walk to the through the valley of the
Shadow of death , I will fear no evil:
For Thou art with me

Locked and loaded
Gonna find my truth
Now I'm busting trough
All hell breaks loose

And you can all hide behind your desks now
And you can cry 'teacher come help me!'
Through you all
My aim is true

Oh, take a life
Ten others may live
Oh, that's just the way it goes
Oh, shut my eyes
It hammers in my head
Where it'll end
Nobody knows

Ten others may live
Oh, that's just the way it goes
It's playing over and over in my head
Where it begins
And where it'll end
Nobody knows

Bang, bang, it hammers in my head
Bang, bang, it hammers in my head
Bang, bang, it hammers in my head
In my head, in my head

Authority vested in me

Locked and loaded
Voices screaming, let's go
Come on do it, here we go

Oh, that's just the way it goes
I'll shut my eyes, it hammers in my head
Where it'll end nobody knows

Oh, that's just the way it goes
It's playing over and over in my head
Where it'll end nobody knows

Bang, bang, it hammers in my head
Bang, bang, it hammers in my head
In my head, in my head

Yeah, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
I will fear no evil for Thou art with me
Locked and loaded, gonna find my truth
Now I'm busting through, all hell breaks loose

And you can all hide behind your desks now
And you can cry, "Teacher, come help me"
Through you all, my aim is true

My

The song is about a school shooter who believes he is a soldier doing this for the greater good. There are several clues about his military delusion through out this video.
Dogs are ticking time bombs
Birds are stealth bombers
The Teacher and Students are news reporters and figure wearing a dunce hat
The school is burning at the 2:40 mark
The little girl could be a police officer
The ball the little kids are tossing is a bomb
At 4:12 is a dead soldier. This could imply the police found the shooter and killed him
At the end of the video are elephants, camels, and bears carrying bombs. This is people carrying the victims of the shooting . The bombs are the coffins
And finally is the military general. Which is a personification of his military delusion.
This is all I can find.

Can someone explain to me what the hell happened in the music vid?

What I see: Jets that are like birds that eat money for bread crumbs who are fed by Voldemort with a nose.
Later: A general who is in LSD in a car dump where soldiers throw themselves for no apparent reason. Not mentioning the babies in the middle of a jungle who are fed by a soldier and then put outside down surrounded by oil stations.
More Later: Why the hell there are kids playing with a nuke?!?! Are they trying to go hardcore? And what's with the robodogs? Is it a way to say that pit bulls are time bombs?
Seen multiple times: Why there's an elephant in USA ARMY uniform and a pig in a Tuxedo? Also, there's some pig around that is drinking petroleum or oil (whatever the black thing is).
Basically the end: The day animals got human-level intelligence is the day they carry nuclear weapons... because, they are terrorist...?

Is this another non-sponsored capitalism is a messed-up thing?

Gonzalo Vazquez

It's about the war and how the poor americans citizens are a sacrifice for money but in the end that's what they want.
