"Can't Wait For Violence" as written by and Matthew Francis/maxwell Holt....
You know
You say that you'd be satisfied
But it's all right
The pills
It's all you have with all the pain
To satisfy
Alone
I feel just as numb, don't you know
But it's all right
It's soft
The heat and the smoke take you in
It satisfies
No, it's so cold now

Please, in the sky
Let it fall
Let if all to me
In these words
In these eyes
Let it all be freed

It's clean
The skin and the dreams help me bleed
But it's all right
The screen has sucked all I am
I'm a shell
It satisfies
My ink
Shows I can't learn a thing
And it's all right
I know
That this wasn't much, just a fling
It satisfied
No, it's so cold now

Please, in the sky
Let it fall
Let if all to me
In these words
In these eyes
Let it all be freed

So I can't be the one that peels away
But it's heavy, and I feel it
So wait, I knew it
But I'm guilty though
And I can see them tearing away
Your flesh, no
Killed in the rain that day
Just like everyday
Won't you wait for me
It's not over
Go back again
You policed again
Killed it all
Can't wait for violence
If you're open handed
You'll see still lie in my face
I can't wait for violence
You know you say that you'd be satisfied
But it's all right
The pills
It's all you have with all the pain
To satisfy

Alone
I feel just as numb, don't you know
But it's all right
It's soft
The heat and the smoke take you in
It satisfies
Yeah

    General CommentThis song damn good, but only if you like hard shit. I don't know exactly what it means, but is sure as hell is a good mosh song. I get chills when he sings "I can't wait for violence", and the funny thing is, that's like the softest part of the song.

    General CommentHe refers to suicide, and a psychotic state of mind. The pills he is talkin bout, sedate him and calm him down.. When he sings "i cant wait for violene" he wants to kill. He wants to hurt.....

    This is indeed a pissed off song....

    General Commentthis shows what Nothingface is capable of, EVERYTHING... hard shit with melody, and a kick ass riff to back the lyrics, even though the lyrics can be kinda confusing...but still this song is one of Nothingface's best

    General CommentThe pills are a temporary answer to his problems. He describes the way the pills make him feel, it's so cold now. He looks to the skys for his answer. But, his attempts to find himself have failed, he erupts and chooses his own ways of violence to give himself what he feels is the answer. I'm not sure if this is what he meant, but atleast this is what I get from it...

    General CommentTo me, this song is about man's unending infatuation with violence. Every problem in this world is solved through the use of violence and Matt is kinda mocking the human race about it.
