PANTERA : BECOMING [SONGS OF CHILDHOOD NOSTALGIA]

Όχι ακριβώς νοσταλγικό… αλλά μια καλή ιδέα του “πόσο μακρυά” μπορεί να οδηγήσει κάποιον η [ψυχική] κακοποίηση σε παιδική ηλικία…
Από το magnum opus των
Pantera, Far Beyond Driven, 1994.

Not exactly nostalgic. But an example of how “far beyond” a man can be driven, from [mental] abuse during childhood…
From
Pantera‘s magnum opus, Far Beyond Driven, 1994.

A long time ago I never knew myself. Then the memory
Of shame birthed its gift.
No more. The small one, the weak one, the frightened one.
Running from beatings, deflating. I’m becoming more
Than a man. More than you ever were. Driven and burning
To rise beyond Jesus.
I’m born again with snakes eyes
Becoming Godsize
I found my life was slipping through my hands. Perhaps
Through death my life won’t be so bad.
I can see you, can fuck you, inside of you. Staring through
Your eyes. Belittle your friends to serve me, to suck me,
To realize my saving grasp. I of suicide. I the unlord.
I’m born again with snakes eyes
Becoming Godsize

    Interesting! I seem to recall the song, but not the name of the band.
