We'll never get free
Lamb to the slaughter
What you gon' do
When there's blood in the water
The price of your greed
Is your son and your daughter
What you gon' do
When there's blood in the water

Look me in my eyes
Tell me everything's...

    As an "Arrow" fan, I have noticed how similar this song to one of the episodes: a medical drugs company owner has poised the water supply of the poor, so they will have to buy his drugs. Even without this association, I think this song is about someone standing up to the rich: "you thought you could go free, but the system is done for" normally the law system can be bribed, and the rich can juat walk free, but now the people (or just one of them) is standing up, and he/she "won't accapt your silence" as in the right to remain quite, now the rich will have to answer for their crimes.
    Ok, I am talking too much, it's a great son and I love it

    I believe it’s about how greedy humans are and they kill every animal they can see “lamb to the slaughter” just for money. We treat them like dirt on the bottom of our shoes and disregard the beautiful earth we have, until there is too much blood and pollution in the water, then we will have nothing.

    The first time I heard this song I had a show about the Iraq war playing in the background. The troops were pinned down, low on ammo, and the rescue vehicles were struggling to find them. The song felt like a direct comparison to war to me... although based on the music video it has more to do with the prescription medicine thing. Still, it has just always struck me as a commentary on how we get tricked into sending our young to die in wars that don't really matter in the grand scheme of things.

    I think that it means like the government or the rich class is selling drugs and once the people find out why ¨ a another dollar in there pocket¨

    I think its about how pharmacies try to control use with their drugs and hate on natural meds like cannabis, because cannabis helps depression and also has been shown to help some cancers.

    I don't know if it was intentional, but I saw a lot of parallels to the Bible story of the ten plagues. That was my first thought when I heard the song.

    I am guessing its about how we cant always trust the government to do what is best for us because then they will just end up controlling us

    I think that this song is about the government trying to control us.

    I personally interpretted it as the earth reacting to all the pollution by major companies and corporations.

    I was wondering if it is about drugs, like big pharmacy could be completely wrong what do you think?
