Godzilla Lyrics

With a purposeful grimace and a terrible sound
He pulls the spitting high tension wires down

Helpless people on a subway train
Scream bug-eyed as he looks in on them

He picks up a bus and he throws it back down
As he wades through the...

    I think this song is about how mankind is destroying the environment. Godzilla picking up buses and stuff represents the blatant disregard of nature, and Godzilla is supposed to represent human beings, and what they are doing to the world.

    If you think it's literally just about Godzilla you clearly haven't listened to the whole thing. Ever notice the last line repeated SEVERAL times?...

    I think this has to do with the American president at the time bringing terror over the country they just used the metaphor of the legendary lizard godzilla. picking up cars and busses etc. would be taxes and such

    This song is about the giant lizzard, Godzilla. If you don't know who he is, go wiki it.
