"Hidden Hands" as written by and Matthew Francis/maxwell Holt....
I saw it all
A piece in games
It sets in slow descend
Just when I thought I saw everything
You showed me something new
You thought that I would never understand

But now I know how to
Understand you
To see you
To realize the rot inside
You're evil
But placid
I feel sick 'cause I did not see
Nothing at all through all the excess
Destroyed it all and took all the rest
I was misled and nothing less
It's all the same, in love with distress

Somehow the starts retain our innocence
Disappointment in how things have gone
But inside the eyes of every living man
Steep stairways leading down to God
Show your face so you'll convince all of us

You invade daydreams
And ruin everything
Forever, you'll stay the same
Forced us to go insane

There is no place for you in this
Can you find your way back away from us?
Can you adhere and show us strength?
You fucked us all, done nothing straight
Still we won't crawl and we won't fall

Yeah we gave you something to keep
All this again
Not again
Took the long road but got out
I'll show you something
You fucker
Just raise your chin like this

Fuck scrape out his eyes
Yeah, now shave his head and face and ass
Just get him ready
'Cause I want to make this last
It's fucking perfect, show the world

Still we won't crawl and we won't fall
There is no place for you in this
Can you find your way back away from us?
Can you adhere and show us strength?
You fucked us all, done nothing straight
Still we won't crawl and we won't fall

    General CommentThis is by far my favorite song off Violence, Matts screams just slam you in this song, and the riffs are brutal as much as they are beautiful, and the lyrics are deep and angry, this song is right up there with the best of Nothingface.....from what i think this is basically a song about someone that screws over all of their friends and stabs them in the back, who knows, this is one kick ass song, WORLD DOMINATION

    General Commentdude...its all about a relationship gone bad..."can you find your way back away from us"....and nothing says more than "You invade daydreams And ruin everything forever, you'll stay the same Forced us to go insane" that should be the title of the song....

    General CommentI'm pretty sure you are wrong too. Rick played for this album, Tommy didn't actually record anything on this album, so I really doubt the song is about him. I don't think he left the band on bad terms either, as he left because he has a heart condition.

    That said, I don't know what the song is about.

    General CommentLast I checked, this site mainly tailors to what YOU think the songs mean. Pull your panties back up and quit your whining if you don't agree with someone. Oh, and try enjoying the music.

    General CommentI agree with thewaywetrust. Try to enjoy the music. And don't insult people, we are trying to figure out the meaning of the song.

    Btw, the dude who submitted the lyrics forgot the part after you fucked us all, done nothing straight. it goes But I can tell, cause this is strange. So we won't fall, and we won't crawl.

    General CommentPerhaps hes singing about/to "god"... "There is no place for you in this. Can you find your way back away from us? You invade daydreams and ruin everything" Could be saying he doesnt want god in peoples lives so hes just telling him to leave us all alone. "YOU'RE EVIL BUT PLACID" god is evil but placid... cant be seen. But the most convincing line is... "Steep stairways leading down to God. SHOW YOUR FACE so you'll convince all of us." but tahts just my OPINION

    General CommentAnd as for the title, I have no clue... Maybe once he believed in god and prayed to him but now he doesnt so his hands are "hidden" so no one knows who he prays to...maybe no one?... idk lol
