Die For A Lie

Album: Anvil Is Anvil (2016)

Songfacts®:

  • Anvil attack people's spiritual beliefs here, especially those who use religion for their own violent purposes. Guitarist/vocalist Steve "Lips" Kudlow explained:

    "Even in modern times, mankind has not found peace. We cling to ancient beliefs and wage wars against each other in the names of God. We still have no proof or solid scientific evidence that our beliefs are in fact truth or fact. Killing each other over theories of origin... We are still in our infancy as far as civilization is concerned. We are slowly discovering our true factual origins and eventually we will discover the truths. A truth that can't be denied is that people have lost the plot of what religion was supposed to be about.

    Instead of spreading love and understanding, we spread hate and ignorance, murdering each other because we believe one God and belief is better than another, when it all is likely bulls--t!"
