"Under the Sun"
"I Will Refuse" is a bonus track of the Soulfly album 3, released in 2002. It was first recorded by the industrial metal band Pailhead. "I Will Refuse" is the only Soulfly song where Max Cavalera plays the bass, in which the bass solo lasts for over the first minute and a half, then gives way low-tuned speed metal riffing.
Even Soulfly version of "I Will Refuse" was written by all members of Pailhead, but it was produced by Soulfly member Max Cavalera. This song features Sacred Reich member Greg Hall on drums for Roy Mayorga.
"I Will Refuse" deals about a man who reflects on human nature.
Born as a blank page We must pick and choose Our destinations and The paths we'll use What shall we say is sacred What will be abused It's no wonder The world is confused Murder and weather Is our only news I will refuse! Your offer is tempting But it's not what it seems You take advantage Of everyone else's dreams You create the perfect picture By dressing up the scene Trust our hopes and lives To your death machines Your point is not well taken Because that's not what it means I will refuse!
