So I've seen a lot of speculation online about what exactly the noise is in the background of this track. Some people say it's this thing called a bullroarer. Others say it's a toy lightsaber. I think it's John swinging a long, thin piece of flexible, plastic pipe above his head at varying speeds, but I don't know for sure. I do know that, whatever it is, it sounds like it's in A. So, if you want to replicate the sound on guitar, try strumming the A chord at a different speeds to match the pitch changes. Tabbed by Peat A how have we come to be mere mirrors to annihilation? A whom do we aspire to reflect our people's death? A for whose entertainment shall we sing our agony? A one hopes that the destroyers aspiring to extinguish us A will suffer conciliatory remorse at the sight of their own fantastic success A the last imbecile that dreams such dreams is dead A killed by the saviors of his dreams A how have we come to be mere mirrors to annihilation?
