Thieves and Endless Slaughter

Limp Bizkit Thieves 2014

Limp is back! Although “Thieves” was released some time ago, it’s still a bloody murderous cover of an even more bloody and murderous classic Ministry song from 1989! Back then Fred was 19 years old and he probably banged like hell just as I did on this killer Ministry album (The Mind Is a Terrible Thing to Taste).
On the other hand, can download Endless Slaughter from the band’s official web site right now. Make a nice pair to “Thieves” and foreshadows a dark and heavy album. You still can grab “Thieves” from here.

“Thieves” is the opening track from Ministry’s fourth studio album, The Mind Is a Terrible Thing to Taste. The song’s lyrics deal mainly with political corruption. The song includes dialogue samples from R. Lee Ermey’s drill instructor character in Full Metal Jacket. Ministry’s version featured in the 1992 science fiction film “Freejack”.
The song is based on a harmonic stasis. It features the extensive use of E minor chord. 118 out of 138 measures of the song are based on the same E minor chord, while the rest are F minor chords. Al Jourgensen sings only the G note, while the song “shifts gears rhythmically” through its sections and quadruples its tempo.

Limp Bizkit released its cover version of “Thieves” as the second official single of their long anticipated new album via Twitter on November 1, 2013 for free download. Limp Bizkit’s version is taken from the band’s upcoming seventh studio album “Stampede of the Disco Elephants”. Limp Bizkit performed it throughout many of the band’s live sets since 1997, but the band did not release a studio version until 2013. Limp Bizkit’s version does not include the samples that are on Ministry’s version.

The first official single for the album, “Ready to Go”, featuring Lil Wayne, was released in March 2013 on limpbizkit.com as a free download and, on April 16, as a digital single on iTunes and Amazon and the music video, directed by Durst, was released on 22 July. On August 20, 2013, Limp Bizkit posted on their Facebook page that a second single is to be expected soon. It was soon confirmed to be set for release on November 1, 2013. The second single turned out to be “Thieves”; a cover of the song by Ministry that they performed live at Woodstock in 1999 and throughout many of their live sets since 1997, but hadn’t released a studio version until now. A month later, on December 11, the previously leaked track, “Lightz” was officially released as a promotional single, along with an accompanying music video. The band labelled it as “gift” for their fans.

The album has since been indefinitely postponed to be released “sometime in 2014”. We’re f*cking waiting!

“Thieves, thieves and liars, murderers
Hypocrites and bastards in laughter

Hey, thanks for nothing
Morals in the dust
Two faced bastards and sycophants
No trust

Thieves, liar, thieves, liar
Thieves, liar, thieves, liar
Inside, outside, which side, you don’t know
My side, your side, their side, we don’t know

Which side are they, which side are they?
Which side of their mouth do you suppose that it came?
Which side are they, which side are they?
Which side of the grass is greener?

Inside, outside, which side, we don’t know
My side, your side, their side, no one knows

You’re like a great big fucking sponge
Just waiting to get squeezed

Breathe, forfeit erection
Toxical injection
Geriatric fuck-fest
We still believe in lies

Thieves, liar, thieves, liar
Thieves, liar, thieves, liar
Inside, outside, which side, you don’t know
My side, your side, their side, we don’t know

Which side are they, which side are they?
Which side of their mouth do you suppose that it came?
Which side are they, which side are they?
Which side of the grass is greener?

Inside, outside, which side, we don’t know
My side, your side, their side, no one knows

You’re like a great big hit of acid
Waiting to be taken”

And here it’s the original. Still extremely heavy and intense like it was released just yesterday!!!
