"Frontlines" is a song recorded by Soulfly. It is played as the seventh track of the 2005 album Dark Ages. It is the second of two singles released from the album. The single was released four months after the album itself was released.

"Frontlines" is a relatively fast song, a lot due to the aggressiveness of the guest guitarist Kerry King of Slayer who takes the place of Marc Rizzo. The riffing play as fast as typical Slayer songs, but the riffing does not sound like Slayer, but rather the sound is like that of their Sepultura's third album Beneath the Remains. The ending of this song features a soft acoustic sound overlaid with various battlefield noises.

This song is about getting involved in the war. The accompanying music video features alternating scenes of band members performing this song in front of the bombed RTS headquarters in Belgrade, Serbia and attacks during the Kosovo war around that same location, including bombing of the RTS headquarters, culminating with detonation of a nuclear bomb.

Lyrics Edit

I don't give a fuck
You don't give a fuck
They don't give a fuck
Get back in the front

I don't give a fuck
You don't give a fuck
We don't give a fuck
Get back to the front

No one to trust
Just blood in the dust
Things just getting worse
Worse, worse and worse

You kill, no remorse
You die, for what cause
They kill, no remorse
They die, for what cause

Back to the, back to the
Back to the frontlines
Back to the, back to the
Back to the frontlines

I don't give a fuck
You don't give a fuck
They don't give a fuck
Get back in the front

I don't give a fuck
You don't give a fuck
We don't give a fuck
Get back to the front

At war, once more
Peace is another sign that falls
I didn't want to be in war
But it follows me once more

For what, I don't know
I don't understand
Can you tell me who has won?
When nothing remains

Back to the, back to the
Back to the frontlines
Back to the, back to the
Back to the frontlines

Back da fuck up now
Shut da fuck up now
Back to da front now
Back to the frontlines
