I know that this band doesn't ever want to write the same song twice, but given that, Disturbed still has a sound. Let's call it a bag of tricks that we can reach into.
We pretty much just live music... it’s not a hobby, it’s not even a job... it’s a lifestyle; we live it, we breathe it, we eat it, we sleep it.
It's that iconic imagery of that sea of raised fists during a live performance. It's a symbol of unity and strength and at the same time there are elements of defiance and rebellion that are inherent in that raised fist symbol. It's just one of those iconic pieces of imagery from the life of rock 'n' roll.
We are the ones that will open your mind Leave the weak and haunted behind People can no longer cover their eyes If this disturbs you then walk away
—Ten Thousand Fists
Another dream that will never come true Just to compliment your sorrow Another life that I've taken from you A gift to add on to your pain and suffering Another truth you can never believe Has crippled you completely All the cries you're beginning to hear Trapped in your mind, and the sound is deafening Another nightmare about to come true Will manifest tomorrow Another love that I've taken from you Lost in time on the edge of suffering Another taste of the evil I breed Will level you completely Bring to life everything that you fear Live in the dark and the world is threatening
Never again will I be dishonored And never again will I be reminded Of living within the world of the jaded They kill inspiration It's my obligation To never again allow this to happen Where do I begin? The choices are endless Denying the sin My art, my redemption I carry the torch of my fathers before me
