New Millennium Homes

Album: The Battle Of Los Angeles (1999)

Songfacts®:

  • This is about capitalism and how it negatively affects the poor working class. Lyrics like "Old south order, new northern horizon" are in reference to large corporations that make you think they have great positive ideals and practices when in actuality they have the same slave owning way of thinking of the old American south. The title New Millennium Homes could be a slightly sarcastic way of saying so called charity is a fraud to make you believe something is being done about the problem of poverty.
  • The chorus to this riff is the same as the ending riff on the Rage/Tool collaboration. >>

  • Chris from New York, NyThe opening riff is a Moby Dick by Led Zeppelin redeux...
  • John from Glasgow, Scotlandthe rage/tool collaboration (titled "Revolution") is really good.
  • Brooks from Arroyo Grande, CaThis is a fantastic song that I think has a lot to do with government opression. Huge corperations want you to buy their products and live the "AMERICAN DREAM"
