"Blood on the Street" is a song included on the album Ritual. This song is about a policeman in Arizona murdering a Navajo girl Lourel Tsingine. The song starts out with a flute then goes to drum reverb very reminiscent of Pantera's "13 Steps to Nowhere", followed by tribal chants and drumming in outro.

Lyrics Edit

Chain link and concrete
Blood on the streets
Different eyes and hair
The scales of justice don't care

Chain link and concrete
Blood on the streets
Foreboding god complex
She never knew she was next

Like devils in uniform
Forced traditions to conform
With the coming of caustic hordes
Casualties become the norm

Can you hear them?
Let them speak!

New dark ages ice my veins
Net worth different at birth
To protect and to serve
Fuck that! Are you insane?!
When they fall, they fall strong
Real strength lies in resolve
Dead justice has failed us
Rogue power, crooked laws

Can you hear them?
Let them speak!
Can you hear them?
Let them speak!

(Na fronteira entre o céu e o inferno, 22 milímetros de ferro)

Testimony of survivor's tale
Triumphant verdict, the dead don't care
Unseen terror, a horror dream
Guardian lost, what does it mean?

Chain link and concrete
Blood on the streets
Different eyes and hair
The scales of justice don't care

Chain link and concrete
Blood on the streets
Foreboding god complex
She never knew she was next
She was next
