What is evil?
What is love?
What is the force that possesses us?
Where is the beauty?
Where is the truth?
Where is the force that watches over you?

What is it that makes us ashamed to be white?
(when we close our ears to the sound of machine gun)

And while the niggers of this world are starving
with their mouths wide open
What is it that turns the coins we throw at them
into worthless little tokens?

Why is it that anything on this earth we do not understand
We are pushed onto our knees to worship or to damn?

Those are the rules of religion
Those are the laws of the land
That's how the forces of darkness have suppressed the spirit of man

That's why human beings still walk on all fours
Whilst in the presence of their so called superiors

Somethings telling you to wake up and salute
The dangers of obedience and the violence of truth

God is evil
God is love
God is the force that possesses us
God is beauty
God is truth
God is the force that is watching over you

This needs more rotation.
Thanx so much Bill for the opportunity to listen to this song. I hope that more and more people wake up.
Matt Johnson is a genius indeed {#Notworthy} 
Very powerful lyrics in The Violence Of Truth. This is my first time hearing this tune. I\'m not so sure I understand why the use of the \"N\" word. Whats up with that? Can anyone clue me in...? :ask:
My favorite song off this album. I was working in a record store when Mind Bomb was released. I remember the label sent us a promotional CD wedged in a lifesize rubber brain. Nice!
TheThe yes, yes, yse, more, more, more, more!!!!!!!
a thinking and proposal bomb
ho hum... maybe the verdict will change on second listen?
That\'s spacetime in my head! Great sound effects! :jump:
My first DDD cd! I still get chills when the drums first crash in, my stereo cranked to the limits. My downstairs neighbor hates me... :drummer:

First time I've heard the song...I second the motion to play it more.
Jonny Marr strikes again!

I always thought The The was hardcore punk. This both swings and rocks!
