This song kicks off with a gunshot then assails you with a methodical, rhythmic, grooving attack that has subliminal messages. Well, they’re not totally subliminal. If you listen, you can hear a female in what can only be described as sexual ecstasy in the background. You can’t have a song about Conception and Birth without a little sex in the intro, right?

I created the intro for this song to be rythmic, pounding, relentless, with minor changes as a garnishment that only familiarity with the song would reveal. The marching army that you hear in the intro break is a metaphor for the the “one billion soldiers equipped and strong”, which is without apology a reference to sperm. The song is about conception and birth. The album is about Life and Death, with each song taking you through a stage of life. The entire album is an onion of deeper layered meaning that uses Western Theology as a backdrop for exploration into the great question.

I hope you enjoy it! PLEASE SHARE!

Cold Cruel World (Lyrics)
by Jerry Boutot

One billion soldiers equipped and strong
Parading into lands unknown knowing they will surely die
Each hoping he will be the one
To break through the barrier and be granted everlasting life

The DNA life program commences execution
Connecting links in molecular chains to build the body human
Perfection in construction is the key to you and me

Floating endlessly – wild – and free
Is how a perfect life should be

Now your first sense of awareness
in this long and endless dream
Is of being ripped away with enormous pain
from the safety of the world you need

A thrashing fish taken out of the water
A bulldozer plows down an ancient tree
A cold slap in the naked face of reality
And you cry for the end of a dream

It’s a cold, cruel world out there
It’s a cold, cruel world out there
You never used to have a care
And it’s a cold, cruel world out there
