Attitude Respect Walk

In my previous Tumblr posting,, I mentioned that people should  listen to Pantera's Walk.

I first listened to this, when I purchased The official Live 101 Album, released in 1997, when I was 15 years old.

I'm 31 now, so it's been 15 years this soundtrack has been stuck in my head.

It's not a melodic song, it's very monotone, the beat is not as fast as other metal songs, the beat is "walk-paced" beat, you might not be attracted to it during the first listening.

Nevertheless, this is nothing but pure common sense.

Life is about attitude, respect, walk.

Pantera - Walk
Soundtrack from Official Live 101 Album (1997)

Can't you see I'm easily bothered by persistence
One step from lashing out at you...
You want in to get under my skin
And call yourself a friend
I've got more friends like you
What do I do?

Is there no standard anymore?
What it takes, who I am, where I've been
You can't be something you're not
Be yourself, by yourself
Stay away from me
A lesson learned in life
Known from the dawn of time

Attitude, Respect, walk

Run your mouth when I'm not around
It's easy to achieve
You cry to weak friends that sympathize
Can you hear the violins playing you song?
Those same friends tell me your every word



Are you talking to me?
No way punk

Pantera is:-
