"New Colossal Hate" addresses discrimination as Randy Blythe
blasts the exploitative rhetoric against marginalized people which continues to divide America.
The song's title is a reference to American poet Emma Lazarus' 1883 sonnet The New Colossus
, which is inscribed on the base of the Statue of Liberty. The poem, which she wrote in two days, says, "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore."
