"It Makes Them Disappear" as written by and Vincent Paul/abbott Abbott....
Gone... (x2)

The time had finally come to kill the vein.
And I'm dropping down the dirt on your grave
It might hurt so bad, but I can't feel sad
Rid of a fool like you
The wrath has just begun
The time has finally come
And it hurts so bad, and it drives me mad
Life with a blinded view (of you)

(Chorus)
It makes them disappear
It fills their life with fear
When their future isn't clear
It makes them disappear

- Gone - (x2)

So the coward has up and run to be saved
But with each step taken down, you sink in your grave
It might hurt so bad, but I can't feel sad
Rid of a fool like you

(Chorus)

Get the fuck on down the road

(Solo)

(Chorus)

    General CommentWhen someone is crazy/has antisocial problems... including drug addiction... they often find themselves isolating themselves from those around them and pushing them away.

    It makes them disappear.

    My InterpretationMy guess is that it's about Phil and his heroine addiction, but also in general:

    'The time had finally come to kill the vein.
    And I'm dropping down the dirt on your grave
    It might hurt so bad, but I can't feel sad
    Rid of a fool like you'

    I think this part is about him getting clean from his heroine addiction, and he's suffering from the after-effects.'And I'm dropping down the dirt on your grave', could be about him abandoning his heroine addiction. 'It might hurt so bad, but I can't feel sad'. He finds it hard to say goodbye from drugs, but deep inside he knows it's the best thing to do, hence the 'I csn't feel sad'.'Rid of a fool like you' The heroine in this case is entitled as a fool.


    'It makes them disappear
    It fills their life with fear
    When their future isn't clear
    It makes them disappear'

    I think this part is about the effects of heroine in general, the heroine itself being entitled as 'It'. 'It makes them disappear', is the reason many people use drugs in general, not just for the trip itself, but also because you have a chance to escape from your struggles in life. 'It makes them disappear' thus stands for the fact that you become 'invisible' by using heroine.

    Then, the second part '�t fills their life with fear, when their future isn't clear.' The first line is about the after effects of using heroine; after your rush/trip you become scared, so you do another bag to feel happy again, which is the major symptom of a drug addiction. 'When their future isn't clear', refers to what I've said earlier, they are trying to escape the pressure of life through heroine.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    My other interpretation is as follows:

    The time had finally come to kill the vein
    And I'm dropping down the dirt on your grave
    It might hurt so bad, but I can't feel sad
    Rid of a fool like you
    The wrath has just begun
    The time has finally come
    And it hurts so bad, and it drives you mad
    Life with a blinded view (of you)

    'it might hurt so bad, but I can't be sad'
    In this case; he knows that the heroine is destroying him from inside(It might hurt so bad), but I think he's convinced that the negative effects of heroine don't weigh up to the 'positive' effects (But I can't be sad).
    'Rid of a fool like you'
    The fool he's talking about might be some sort of relative, and like I've said before; the heroine enables him to escape his responsibilities to that person.
    'And it hurts so bad, and it drives you mad'. I think this(and it drives you mad) is about the relatives of the addict dealing with his addiction. This is understandable, as alot of addicted people tend to get in some sort of a 'downer' state, where they always feel shit whenever they are not using heroine.

    'Life with a blinded view (of you)'
    So the heroine gives him the opportunity to escape life's pressure, but in return the heroine gives him a distorted point of view of life, and of his relatives.

    Yeah, wall of text, sorry if my english has some mistakes.
    Peace

    General CommentAlso, about my earlier comment, I think this quote applies to my interpretation very well:
    'He who makes a beast out of himself, gets rid of the pain of being a man'(not to be confused with gay a7x)
    'He who makes a beast out of himself(He who uses drugs, alcohol to become distorted 'beast' version of himself), gets rid of the pain of being a man(The drug enables him to escape the responsibilities a man has to deal with'.

    My work is done here, peace
