Pantera – “Heresy” Live at Foundations Forum 1990

We can see young but so powerful Pantera on this quality live video. Pantera performed at “Foundations Forum” on 15 September, 1990. Foundations Forum was the first exclusively heavy metal music industry convention, held annually from 1988−1997 in Los Angeles. FF90 was held at the Sheraton Plaza La Reina Hotel in Los Angeles from 13-15 September, 1990.

This incredibly superb live performance at FF90 was recorded and released as a bonus CD on the deluxe edition of Pantera’s fifth studio album “Cowboys From Hell (Deluxe Edition 3CD)” (ATCO, 2010). “Heresy” is taken from this album.

Lyrics

Here we are
In a world of corruption
Human nature is
Of violent Breed
Who cares if there’s no tomorrow
When I die for my future’s
Laid out for me
Can’t you see?
Rise above the lies
Morals on a backwards globe
A sin to you
For me it’s hope.

It’s my life and provision
Black or white
Some pay to pray
You question why they
Act this way
It’s their fucking decision

No more judgement day
Only tranquility
Peace signs, protest lines
Mean nothing to me

Honesty born in me
Heresy

I know what’s right or wrong
And my belief is stronger
Than your advice
People, they go to war
Because religion gives them
Reason to fight
Sacrifice, die for pride
A group that caters
No one’s fees
Or synthetic deities
Is where I belong
My stand is the human race
Without a label or a face
So they can lick my sack

No more judgement day
Only tranquility
Peace signs, protest lines
Mean nothing to me

Honesty born in me
Heresy
