“In the land of the Pigs, the butcher is king”.
I just love this for a song title. I’ve been listening to the song to actually try and understand the metaphor and the context in which it is intended. The song itself is pretty good, I’m not too quick when it comes to picking up the hidden meaning of songs without actually having the lyrics sitting in front of me, following along while I listen, so in the mean-time, I’m going to have to continue to listen to this song and see if I can actually pick up on it. So far I’m enjoying it. Yes, sorry world, I have the other two prior Bat Out of Hell albums (I think I have the first one in vinyl tool!) and there likely wouldn’t be any way I wouldn’t own this one too. I’m not necessarily a big Meatloaf fan, but I have enjoyed the Bat Out of Hell albums, the second one not so much, but defintely the first one.
