Holding guns while reading Bibles
This is a reference to Tech being all ‘'6’s and 7s" and explains the contradictory nature of human behaviour, the guns representing evil and the Bibles representing good. Even though people can be religious and holy, they need to be violent at times in order to protect themselves. These type of hell/heaven metaphors are quite common in Tech’s recent music.
The original lyrics written by Serj were:
Holding guns while burning Bibles
Tech asked him to change it because of his long fought charges of devil worshiping. Serj suggested reading bibles instead & Tech said “that’s fucking perfect"
This also sounds quite alike an older song from Serj called ‘’Praise The Lord And Pass The Ammunition‘’.
