♫♫ Legion Of Monsters...♫♫ Disturbed Takes On The Media For Glamorizing The Maniacs.


 Vocalist David Draiman explained the song's meaning to Artist Direct: "The tendency for society to create maniacs by glamorizing them and making them larger than life - people like the 'Boston Bomber' who are plastered on the cover of Rolling Stone," he said. "That is exactly what these people are looking for. They are looking to be martyred and to die and be remembered for what they died for."

"Anytime these maniacs kill children or whomever, it isn't the victims who are on the screen," Draiman continued. "We have to know more about the shooter or the person who committed the act. You know what? I don't need to know anything more about him except that he's a maniac. If somebody did that, leave it to the FBI. The public knowing all just encourages a new generation of wannabe maniacs to do the same thing, to get that same glory, and to die in infamy. The media continues to breed a new legion of monsters."






The monster shattered the day
In a place where innocents play
I was mourning as the headlines shouted his name

They didn't waste any time
I was disgusted when the madman's image appeared at the top of the screen
Some were barely alive
Too many didn't survive
Still they kept repeating headlines shouting the name
Do they not realize
The future demons with the hope of becoming the one at the top of the screen?

They've thrown morality away
With such depravity, I must say
You made sure the world will remember the name
But didn't the thought even enter your mind
You'd give a new legion of monsters a reason to take your life

The pictures drove me insane
Can't get them out of my brain
You made certain they were right at the top of the page
You disrespected the dead
When the only name was of the one who committed the murder at the top of the page
The madman watching with glee
As the herd of innocents flee
They saw it all unfold right on the face of the screen
Perhaps they could be the one
Who'd become famous for the acts of terror reflected on the face of the screen?

You've thrown morality away
With such depravity, I must say
You made sure the world will remember the name
But didn't the thought even enter your mind
You'd give a new legion of monsters a reason to take your life
And I call you a pimp, as you whore the insane
The damage you caused you cannot rectify
You've inspired new legions of monsters determined to take more life

Take a look around
Listen to the sound
Feel it to the ground
Fear has come in a wave
Just another gathering of helpless innocents forced into the grave
Listen to me now
Are you with me now
Can you tell me how these vultures still glorify them
Lets defy them

You made sure the world will remember the name
But didn't the thought even enter your mind
You'd give a new legion of monsters a reason to take your life
And I call you a pimp, as you whore the insane
The damage you caused you cannot rectify
You've inspired new legions of monsters determined to take more life

The monster shattered the day
The monster shattered the day
You're giving a legion of monsters a reason
