A Silver Mt. Zion Information Continued
There are strong political motifs in A Silver Mt. Zion's music. The instrumental "13 Angels Standing Guard 'round the Side of Your Bed" is apparently directed towards black bloc anarchists, according to liner notes. The song "Triumph of Our Tired Eyes" could be interpreted as lamenting the present state of the world while espousing strong hope for the future. It also references the old anarchist song, "To the Barricades", sung by anarchists during the Spanish Revolution. A Silver Mt. Zion's most recent album, Horses in the Sky, contains ostensibly political tracks, including "God Bless Our Dead Marines" and "Ring Them Bells (Freedom Has Come and Gone)".
