As you should know by now, the lyrics to SEPULTURA's NATION will NOT be included in the packaging (too much other info). So, if you want to see the lyrics, this is where you can find them. A couple things before laying them on you - 1) The WHOLE NATION album is currently up on our site (streaming file). Check out the MUSIC section. 2) Monday (03/12) marks the END of the NATION FLAG contest. GET YOUR SUBMISSIONS IN BEFORE THEN to be eligible to win backstage at a Sep show near you! (see FREE SHIT section for details) 3) What is being played in the office right now as I write this? I can hear "The Ways Of Faith" being cranked from a stereo about 4 desks away (listen to the NATION stream, it's on there) And now, the words of NATION "SEPULNATION" Lyrics: Igor Cavalera, Derrick Green Music: Andreas Kisser, Igor Cavalera A NATION BUILT ON SWEAT A NATION BUILT ON BLOOD A NATION BUILT ON DREAMS BEFORE THE TONGUES ARE MUTE BEFORE THEY HIDE THE TRUTH WE'LL BE THE ONES WHO SPEAK A NATION - A NATION A STRUGGLE - A STRUGGLE A WEAPON - A WEAPON OUR MUSIC!!!
