about

This song means a lot to me, and it might be the "coolest" song I've written. It actually wears sunglasses and rides a neat bicycle. It's definitely one of the angriest.

lyrics

Follow
The worst of transgressions
To call you a deadbeat would be generous
Venomous
A snake in the family
I see you shaking my hand
But you can't look me in the eye
Afraid of what lies
Behind

Woke up on the
Wrong side
Of the Wrong bed
In the wrong place
At the wrong time
In the wrong way
Let's right it now

So you tarnished my name
and I got left is revenge
Coming at you
So get steady
You can't run

And all this burning resentments too damn hot
For the sun
The payback for the sickening things
You've done

So it burns
With the fury of a thousand sons
And our daughters, the energy left from the fallen ones

So If you wanna go and tempt with fate
Let me be your guide through hate

The unspoken unrest
The purity of those who you hurt best
Injustice
Hard to hate the murder itself
When you're the righteous gun


No soul of which to speak
The way you play your cards clean
Jettisoned from a kill made so ugly
Built up on a minefield of the obscene

Confession and apology is all they asked
When you tore up a life undeserving so crass
First things first
And these seconds will be your last

How about this?
GO

Walk softly and carry a biased stick
Without the agility to move swiftly
And hold one furious breath in anger
And know they shall ask nothing else of you

Tell tale signs of a coward who shakes his fist
If I've got one more shot, it's coming straight from the hip
It's ready to go and I never miss

So how the fuck about this?

Oh So it burns
With the fury of a thousand cries
Convalescing primeval energy
That would crack the skies
So If you wanna go and tempt with fate
Let me be your guide through hate

The unspoken unrest
The purity of those who hate you best
Swift justice
Hard to hate the murder itself
When you're the righteous gun

How about this?
And how about this?
