Is this song explicit?

I was on Spotify listening to A brighter side of suffering by As Blood Runs Black and I saw that it was explicit. So, I looked up the lyrics, and I didn’t see any bad words, so therefore it’s not explicit.

    No it’s not explicit. They’re an extreme metal band so it’s hard to understand what they are saying.

    Good question about what one means by "explicit"

    Is Mighty Tight Woman (Sippy Wallace, Bonnie Raitt) "explicit", even though there are no naughty words (and yes that is exactly what the song is about).

    How about Candye Kane's All You Can Eat which is an extended metaphor.

      I mean explicit as in bad words, sex, drugs, violence, gore, and other R rated stuffs

    I don't hear any explicit words.   

    A possibility is that the Album was marked 

    [Explicit] and individuals songs weren't really checked out 

    and just marked with the same rating 

    as the album "Allegiance".

    Every single song is marked [Explicit] 

    on the album/CD on Amazon. 

    Needles and Hell are mentioned.  

    However, without the lyrics as aid (from metrolyrics) , 

    I would have probably would not have understood  65 % of the lyrics 

    and maybe the censor's did too. 

    If they can't understand, then just call it [Explicit]. 

    It is easier that way.  

    Or maybe the band sells more songs if they label most of the

    them explicit whether they are or not.     

    I intentionally listenned to a version marked explicit, so it isn't 

    just a clean version you heard.

      There isn't much cursing and only the variants of the f word at first glance.
